You can love someone for their qualities and not have a sense of intimacy. This type of love gives rise to competition and jealousy.
If love is based on the qualities of a person, that love is not stable. After some time the qualities change and the love becomes shaky.
However, if you love someone because they belong to you, then that love remains for lifetimes. Loving someone because they belong to you, great or otherwise, is unconditional love. Love that is centered becomes bliss.
And when there is so much love you take total responsibility for any misunderstanding. For a moment you may express dismay on the surface. But when you do not feel the dismay in your heart, you arrive at a perfect understanding. You are in a state where all problems and all differences slide away and only love shines through.
