A. I like you being who you are.
B. I like your being who you are.

C. I like you being honest.
D. I like your being honest.

1. Which of the sentences above is correct?
2. If both are possible in each set, is there any difference in meaning? formality?
3. Which is more natural between A and B, and C and D?
4. I believe sentence A is the same as saying 'I like you as who you are', though I'm not sure about C like saying 'I like you as honest'. Would you agree 'being' can be substitued with 'as'?

5. If not, how is 'being' different from 'as' in meaning?

Please help. Thanks lots.

Maybe you don't realize it, but you are answering a question that was asked and answered more than ten years ago.

Why not answer questions that are more recent? That way there's a better chance that the person who asked the question is still participating on our forum and can benefit from your answer.
