Honesty is the highest form of intimacy. Everytime someone tells me the truth I find them more attractive and fall in love with them.
Love is a word that has so many meanings. I could tell you I love you because you are open and upfront about being yourself. I could tell you I love you by you being honest to me. I could love you for your generosity. Love can just be a feeling of excitement being with a person. Being able to bring joy and happiness to a person is a lovely feeling. Just because I say I love you does not mean I want to get married. I am a lover of life.
Words have so many different meanings that is the art and beauty of the human language. I can say one thing if you take it out of context that is something totally different.
