: I am looking for the meaning of the phrase "love your guts". Anyone know?

If I'm right, it's more usual to see "I like your guts" or "I admire your guts". These both mean that the speaker admires the listener's daring or courage.

A related UK slang phrase is "you've got some bottle", meaning that you're brave (and maybe a tad shameless or foolhardy).
