or would you much rather her tell you “I admire the person you are”
what are you thinking when you hear those?

If its from my SO than I'd like it. But I'd find it weird if it was from someone I barely knew or if she said it over the phone or with a text message (I can't protect you from another location). Tell me that when we're hugging or cuddling. It would make me feel more macho than Randy Savage.
Any of the first three would be a lovely compliment as long as I thought it was genuine.
The last one isn’t specific, which makes it seem like a generic platitude and not as genuine. It would be much better to tell him *why* you admire him. Is it his compassion? His ability to write C++ programs? His choice of breakfast cereal?
In short, if you say “I admire the person you are”, you’ll just leave him wondering… why?
