Admiration in the purest form

This scene from Love Actually is considered one of the most romantic in the history of all movies. I’ve never felt too strongly about it, but I do remember this scene even though the movie is like 10 years ago.

I never thought in real life a man would profess his feeling to a woman without anything in return, but something similar did happen. It was no big deal, no drama, just a good friend thinking he ought to tell me how he felt before I leave even though he knew nothing will happen between us.

It is heartwarming to know someone thinks I’m such a great woman. All he wants is for me to know, without any agenda. To me, it’s admiration in the purest form. I appreciate that.
