For the Man I’m Going to End Up Marrying

For the man that I’m going to marry,

Please do know just how special you are to me. You are probably going to end up becoming the most critical person in my life. There are no limits to which I will love you. And that’s not easy for me to do. After all, I’m not fond of expressing my feelings towards others. This is a side of myself that I’ve never really conveyed or shown to other people. This is something that only you get to see. After all, you are a unique human being, and you’re unlike anyone I have ever had the privilege of meeting.

An Image of Tomorrow

Whenever your face flashes on my mind, I immediately navigate towards thoughts of sharing a future with you. I get all giddy just thinking about the kind of life that we’re going to share. I get all excited about all of the joy and happiness that awaits us as a couple. Even though forever might seem like such a far-off concept, I still can’t wait to spend forever with you. Every day that I think of you, I envision you to be a strong, kind, and intelligent man. Of course, those are things that you would want out of anyone you meet. However, I do hope that you turn out special. I hope that you’re a cut above the rest.

I know that I’m not the easiest woman to love. And so, it dreads me to think that you would fall out of love with me eventually. Perhaps, someday, you will come to realize that you’ve made the mistake of being with me. That would probably be my biggest fear. However, the love that I have for you is definitely enough to overcome the fear. It’s a risk to fall in love with you. But damn, baby. You’re definitely worth the risk.

Looking to Forever

I must admit that I’m instead in love with the idea of being in love. That’s precisely why I’m writing a letter like this for you. Of course, I’m going to love it whenever you make some romantic gesture for me. However, I’m also going to be able to draw a lot of joy and satisfaction from the simple things. After all, I’m a simple person who has simple needs. And ultimately, I find that there is beauty in simplicity. Loving someone might seem like this grandiose and complicated concept. However, I think we tend to overcomplicate things a lot. And fixing that means turning to what is simple. Put, I love you. And that’s all there is to it.

Whenever I think of my future, I can’t imagine not having you there at my side. As I ponder on everything that I want to accomplish in life, you are right there with me. It’s not that my achievements would be invalidated or unfulfilled with your absence. However, your presence brings a whole new light of meaning and fulfillment to these experiences. That’s what being with you is going to be like. It’s an experience that I would never want to have ended.

Understanding that You and Me = Us

In spite of the way that I project myself, I am susceptible to my feelings. I have a huge heart. And while that can be a good thing, for the most part, it can also be wrong. Having a big heart means having a large target. And I can fall victim to a lot of manipulators, abusers, and evil people out there. However, I know for a fact that you are not like them. I know that you would do anything that you can to shield and protect me from these people for as long as we’re together. There are safety and security that I find in the concept of us. It’s no longer just me fending for myself in the world. It’s us holding each other’s hands and facing the world together.

True, love isn’t going to be easy. I know that. And it would be foolish for me to assume that. I know that love is ultimately going to be a rollercoaster. There will be a lot of fun parts, but there are some scary parts as well. However, it’s also like a rollercoaster in the fact that I know that no matter how scary it can get, I’m always safe with you.

An Ode to Forever

Dear future husband, I know you’re out there. We may not have crossed paths yet. But know this: once we fall in love, it’s going to be nothing like we’ve ever experienced. And I’m so excited to get started on forever with you.
