What do ppl mean when they say, " I wear my heart up on my sleeve."?

It would also help to know if that person is being positive or negative with that statement

It means that he is open and obvious about his emotions, especially if they regard the object of his desire. It can be said of men or women. Such a person is always making an appeal to emotion of some kind. It generally means that the person's emotions are very readable. They are more likely to be hurt by others because they tend to not hide their emotions.
It is an expression for showing that person's feelings. Some people aren't very good at disguising how they really feel, and this phrase was coined for them. They do not hold back their emotions, for good or for bad. It is clear how they feel in each moment, by their body language, facial expressions, stance, movement, words, and tones.

It is a figure of speech which can mean 1) A person is easy to read and figure out or 2) Falls "in love" or becomes very needy very quickly with another person or 3) BOTH No. 1 AND 2.

It means whoever said it thinks they're 'different'. *rollseyes*

It can be both a neg or a poz, depending on you, basically it means they're like an open book, they show their emotions and everything on the outside - heart on my sleeve = emotions on the outside.

Or so I have been lead to believe. ;)
