• I haven’t met you yet, but I hope you love me

    I haven’t met you yet, and I’ll never send you this letter, because it’s really all about me, and if there’s anything my mom ever told me, it’s that the world doesn’t revolve around me…

    But I hope you love me. I hope someday I’ll smile at you, and like a song, that smile will be stuck in your head. I hope you’ll find excuse after excuse to talk to me, I hope that none of those “tips on dating a guy” that I’ve read online work on you. I hope I don’t have to wear shorts shorter than your boxers or say stupid flirty things for you to notice me. I hope you smile a lot, I smile a lot. I hope we can laugh together, and have adventures of all sorts, even if that means just getting lost in a city like seattle.

    I hope we talk for hours, and I hope I can tell you anything. I hope you say my name a lot, and I hope you care about me. No one ever really cares, but I hope you do. I hope you’re nicer that my dad ever was to my mom. I hope you don’t yell at me and call me stupid, swear at me. I hope you don’t leave my crying at night, or turn my heart to stone. I hope you smile a lot and tell me secrets. I want our hugs to last forever, and I hope we take long walks “I love you” is the main topic.

    No one ever asks what I want, or what I hope for when it comes to us, because there is no us. There’s just me, except in my world, there’s really just everyone else, but that’s okay because I think you’re out there.

    I haven’t met you yet, but if I do, I would very much appreciate it if you fell in love with me… Who wouldn’t 🙂

      Dear writer,

      I think you just entered my own brain, saw how I felt and put it into words. I’ve had my heart stomped on and put through the wringer I don’t know how many times. But I always get up, dust myself off, and keep walking. Allow yourself to bend, but don’t break.

      This morning, the guy I thought was the man of my dreams decided he no longer wanted to be with me. “Different goals”, he said. “Wrong timing”. When will the timing be right? Why do we have to have the same goals? Isn’t that why we seek another? Who would want to date themselves?

      I know we’ll find our match. I believe in love. So take a deep breath and keep walking. We’ll find our prince. In the meantime, let’s enjoy kissing the toads. 😉

      You aren’t the only one who writes letters to someone you haven’t met yet. I’ve been writing letters to my future bride for over a year on Letters to Luthien.
