Vulnerability

The original question was

At what point in a relationship/connection do you feel comfortable being emotionally vulnerable with a lover or partner?

My question is why should I ever make my self 'vulnerable' to another person? What's the benefit?

There’s been a bit of chat on the subject, mostly having to do with trust, acceptance, and ‘letting people in’.

One person commented ‘I feel that any relationship, be it friendship or lover, at some point we become emotionally vulnerable to each other, or the relationship stays superficial.

I'm still missing the entailment between 'vulnerable' and 'emotional closeness' or 'love' or 'caring'. I don't believe that not making oneself vulnerable means that a relationship is superficial.
