“Intimacy, by definition, means lowering your defenses, leaving yourself vulnerable. But once you’ve let someone into your proverbial exhaust port, just to see them blow up your very core with a photon torpedo of betrayal, you swear you’ll never let that happen again. And the only way to do that is to never let anyone get close.”
