means that I accept you for the person that you are and that I do not expect perfection from you. It means that I will stand by you and be there for you even through the worst of times. It means loving you when you’re unhappy or cranky, not just when you’re fun to be with.
‘I love you’ means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them. It means that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love you enough to not let go. It means thinking of you, dreaming of you, wanting and needing you constantly, and hoping that you feel the same way for me.
