Native speaker’s answer

Rebecca

This line means that this person who he now loves is more than someone to just tell his secrets to. If it were a short-term or less serious relationship, one might end up sharing secrets and being vulnerable, but he wants to do more than just that with her. Ex: I want someone not just to tell my secrets to. I want a deeper relationship than that. Ex: I found an outfit that I can wear not just for the wedding, but also for the party next month.
