12/30/2011 ~ Dear Future Husband
Dear future husband,
As I’m sure you know about me whenever (if you ever) read this. I’m a huge nerd. Whoever you are, you’re just going to have to accept that about me. I will always love Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and Doctor Who and I will not apologize for that. :) I’m hoping you will like them as well (or at least will be willing to learn to like them) seeing as they mean so much to me I’m not sure I could bear being with someone who didn’t at least give them a chance. I’ll love you first and foremost darling but I will always love the fictional characters from those stories, they’ve gotten me through a lot while I’m waiting for you.
Another thing I should say, and again, you’ll find this out very soon after meeting me but I can’t cook. I admit that I could perhaps learn to cook and for you my love, I’d be willing to try but the few times I’ve tried before have not gone well. Just a warning. I can make cookies and mac and cheese, I hope you don’t expect much more than that.
One last thing for the day, and again, you’ll know this if you know me at all but my past has left me scarred. I’ve been hurt and forgotten and unloved. I don’t expect those scars to go away but please, help me get through the hurt. Teach me how to trust in love and believe in it. In my heart I know it’s out there, I know God created this longing I have inside to love and be loved but I don’t see it anywhere and sometimes have trouble believing it’s there. I’m sorry for that but please, prove me wrong. I can’t promise that I’ll never mess up but I promise I’ll always be there for you to love and care for you.
From To My Future Spouse Tumblr:
– I have just discovered that waiting and being patient are not the same things. While I wait for you, I will try to remember that “it does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” I will try to be happy and content and joyful instead of pine or be envious. I pray that God can help you to be patient too.
– My only New Year’s resolution is to meet you.
– Show me what real, unconditional love looks like.
– I want a Lily and Marshall kind of love.
