Do you love with an open heart fully or do you find that you hold back alittle from fear of being hurt?

Whenever I fall in love, Im giving all that I can give, without any hesitation. And sometimes nothing left with me and I know it isnt good. It's just me..

Based on my experience when I choose someone to love I'll make it sure that it's really love not just an infatuation. When you love someone, give your best and don't ask to be love in return, getting hurt in love is part of the journey. Give love and respect...and You will be rewarded soon...

danielle is absolutely correct.But somewhere in our heart one wants to be loved in return,otherwise you will not be able to give your 100% in a relation.It's a very ideal situation "NOT EXPECTING" in love but I think you must show some desire in getting back what you are giving else you can lose your love to one who is more demanding and aggressive.Let me know if I am wrong.

When I love, I hope that I would love with an open heart. But of course, I will not give all that I have, but put aside something like fifteen percent so that if something happens like I lost the object of my love, then at least I still have a little left in me to start all over again. What I observed for many is that they give their all to the person they love. And when something bad happens and they are broken, they have nothing more left in them.

I used to love with an open heart. Wide open, ready to embrace the person, care for them, listen to them...And I don't just mean boyfriends, I mean real friends as well. Lately I've been hurt so often that I've been holding back. And I've realized that is hurting me worse than when I was open with my feelings. I guess the old saying is true: It is better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.

I've heard some saying, they won't give 100% of their love so they would not get hurt if the relationship won't work. I find it absurd to hear these things. If you love someone, it would be hard to hold back your feelings. If you fall in love, go! follow your heart. If the relationship fails, you can't blame yourself for not giving a 100%.

I love sincerely, but I love myself even more... I believe in order to give good love (open heartedly), you have to be filled with love first starting off loving yourself more.

Hi, if this word "love " is used corect, must to be asociated with open heart. So, if is real love, somebody must to give all, even can feel empty after, when he will see that don t was real love fow who he love. So, i love with open heart no matter what, because i don t have a open heart, is not love...is just infatuation. Of course that is so bad when you can be disapointed, just because feel that lose everything...but love is love just with open heart.
