"I love you this big" and "I love you this much" <=== Why don't you use "so" instead of "this" in the case?

I'm confusing about what are the differences between "this" and "so" If we say "I love you so much" and "I love you this much"? And I also don't understand GRAMMAR when we use "this" at front of Adjective? I think, "this" is a pronoun and refer to SOMETHING but not to modify adjectives.

P/s: If I made some mistakes in my question (and also in the details), please correct me!
THANKS OF ALL!
++++++ Give some examples to display the usage of "this" with the same meaning in "I love you this much". THANKS!

"I love you this much" is from some old nick-knacks (tiny pretty statues for the house) that showed a small child with their arms stretched as far as they could go saying "I love you this much"--they were saying I can't love you any more--i love you all I can, see, my arms are as far as they will go. Here is one of those nick-knacks:

"I love you so much" is better grammar for most uses. "I love you this much" without the cutesy child with arms outstretched could send the opposite message--that your love has limits.
