Dear Future Husband


I sit here today, wondering who you are. The color of your eyes, the texture of your hair, your favorite food, and how many siblings you have. I wonder about your biggest dreams, your fears, and the sound of your voice.

I get excited thinking of learning the little things about you. You know - how you sleep at night, what kind of pizza you order, and what advice you'll give when I start to feel sick. I look forward to our first several dates and the excitement that will build as we hold hands for the first time and share our first kiss. 

I know when the time is right, you'll come into my life. You'll show me why this crazy path I've been on happened the way that it did. You'll help me realize why it took so long to get to you. And I'll be grateful for it all. Because at that moment, that moment when you ask me to marry you, I'll know it's forever love.

I know you'll keep me safe.
I know you'll be true.
I know you'll love me. Truly love me.
I know you'll show up for me.
I know you'll be my backbone when life's tragedies hit.

But most importantly, I look forward to being each other's best friend. To how proud I'm going to be that I'm the one who gets to be there by your side looking up at you. Because of you, I'll know what it feels like to finally find my soul's mate and share a bond deeper than I can even find words for.

One day, it will be you in the space next to me as I sleep. It will be you sitting next to me as we drive. It will be you next to me in pictures. It will be you whose voice whispers, "I love you." One day, our hearts will be connected, your hand will be in mine. And our souls will join forever.

All my love,
Your Future Wife

Aw, this is adorable! Trust me I've been through hard breakups in my life, and once you find the right man, that's always been yours all along, it makes everything so worth it! Its something to definitely look forward to!

This is very sweet. I really enjoy and agree with everything you pretty much said. It's intersting to think that your future husband is somewhere out there, you might have even bumped into him and not even know it. =D

Beautiful. Just beautiful! I often think I should set you up with my really good friend, who lives downtown in Seaport. He and I have been friends since high school and I lived with him in his Seaport condo when I lived in SD....

I've thought about writing a letter like this, but haven't been brave enough to do it. Maybe now I will. You are an inspiration.
