Mizz Aggie got her heart broken! The man she was sweet on now likes another woman.

But Mizz Aggie gets mad when something like this happens. She says she'll never fall in love again - but she will. She's a soft-hearted woman. When I told her that, she laughed and said her barrier is up....then she wanted me to ask you all this question:

What does it take for someone to break down your emotional barriers?

A heck of a lot sometimes.....

1)persistant kindness and concern
2)someone who's flirtatious in a sweet way
3)someone who truly needs my help
4)someone who knows how to be romantic
5)a soft touch
6)someone who doesn't expect me to do or be something I'm not

*Sighs* Yep, that's pretty much what it takes...

This is a great question. Seemingly simple, but very complex. By emotional barriers, do you mean upon first meeting, what does it take to establish trust? In answer to that, I am quite often reckless in my "benefit of the doubt"--and deliberate cruelty still comes as a shock to me. But I think more important, is how to maintain the healthy relationship, surviving the growing pains of a relationship in flux. Love is like a river---it wants to go somewhere. Even should we dare to tear down the walls long enough to risk the possible pain of a failed relationship--how do we avoid the temptation of rebuilding those walls when we encounter the inevitable conflicts of an evolving relationship between two (hopefully maturing and evolving people.) I think love and life should be embarked upon in the same spirit of Christopher Columbus--with focus, faith and willingness to fall off of the face of the earth--and who knows? We may not reach our intended goal, but on the way? There just may be a bountiful land.

I'm in this situation right now and have been for years!

~someone who is honest and pure of heart (I can smell phonies a mile away)
~someone who will accept me for who I am
~someone who is VERY PATIENT
~someone who is sweet, understanding, and can listen
~someone who just stands out from the crowd and approaches me in a humble manner, not in a flashy dynamic way, but in a soft, quiet, sincere, kind way

I was surrounded by walls when I met my husband.
His strategy was fairly simple.
Keep the doors open and let me walk through them when I was ready.
He has done this from day one and still does it today.
If it wasn't for him, I probably would still be the emotional mess I was when I met him.
He is very patient, very kind, and knows me very well.
I thank God every day for allowing me to accept my husband's love and to be able to give it in return.
I'm still amazed, after going on 17 years.

How can you save me?
When the dark comes right in and takes me,
from my front walk and into bed,
where it kisses my face and eats my head. Shivaree

I have to agree. . . it takes someone that honest about themselves. . . someone who's willing to show you themselves. . .

And, as said above, that's rare. . . but when it does happen. . . it's wonderful. . .

I have no idea...

I've had 'emotional barriers' forever...I hardly know they exist lol...

it takes...hmm...

myself?
Me?

it's my choice to - I've discovered it doesn't MATTER how nice someone is, or what they do, how much they do...only YOU decide to let them in, in the end. Well, speaking for myself...I mean I've had people in my life who HAVE been wonderful...for a time...

I don't have any barriers.

I would have to say time and a lot of patience. Only when I have had the time to work through my problems can I even see that there is someone standing there waiting.

I seem to be much more vulnerable to past loves, they have only to make the smallest of moves, and I am completely open and vulnerable again.
With new men, there are a few things
1) a very nice smile, that seems to be reserved for me
2) really really good first kiss
3) mucho margaritas  

Apparently I don't have nearly enough emotional barricades. Therin lies much of my pain, I believe.

Hope Miz Aggie is feeling better. I am a great commiserator if needed.

oh boy dangerous question you want me to list the ways in which a woman can break down my defences well here goes
tell me she loves me sounds like she really means it

shows affection

the first thing is a smile
a warm smile drives me nuts.

just friendship and promise of more really.

What does it take for someone to take down my emotional barriers?

Patience.
Someone who is willing to work at gaining my trust. ( Lord knows it isn't easy.)
Someone who loves me in all my moods and knows just how to handle them.
Listening to me.
Someone that tries to make me laugh and smile.
Soft hover kisses.
Letting me win at arguements/debates, games, jokes, whatever...just to make me happy.
Strong hugs that last for minutes on end.
