Gosh, what a vast question, W ! That's truly a 10 pm question ! I think that one can exaggerate the "throw caution to the winds, leave myself totally vulnerable" approach to love. As you say, it leaves you open to being terribly hurt. I think a sounder policy is one of progressively approach that degree of trust and openness with the other person, based on how well they handled the last step towards that goal. This way, you don't open the door to your heart before you've discovered reliably whether the other person is a burglar !
And I don't see it as a sign strength to make oneself repeatedly vulnerable and then get hurt in the same way, repeatedly. Surely strength lies in handling the first event bravely, and LEARNING FROM IT< so as not to repeat the situation so readily ?
