I want both.Is that too demanding?
what about...i love you...knowing your flaws.
I love you...knowing your flaws.AGREED
ditto to the comments above!
Despite. People are not perfect. People need improvement. People can change.
And despite people, love continues to exist, prevail, and perfect.
Despite:It implies that there is more behind the flaws, that such flaws can be pushed aside to reveal a fuller person.Because:It limits the scope of what a person sees. "I love you, because of your flaws." "I only see your flaws." And, if you overcame or corrected your flaws, will I still love you?So which one?Well, I want to fall in love with my husband, not his flaws. :)
I'd prefer I love you because of your flaws, but I'd take I love you despite your flaws. There's something naive and first-year-relationship-jiraley about "I love you because of your flaws". Every time I say something like that about someone, it's because I'm caught up in a moment of more-than-average stupidity. I do not want to be loved stupid. I do want to be loved, stupid.
