Happy Monday, world!

Today we have a new, oh-so romantic letter by @AllyShimmer. Enjoy!

Dear Next,

I think about you sometimes. I think about what you would be like and I wonder what you are doing at the exact moment when I’m thinking of you. I get mad at you for not being here, for not being with me.  See, that’s one bad thing about me. I get mad sometimes for things you may not understand. Tolerate me, please, because I will make up for it.

I can’t wait to hear your stories, to know what you have been doing all the while before you met me. To know who you’ve been with. To smile about it all. I can’t wait to tell you my stories. I don’t have a murky past, you don’t have to worry about that. I will tell you about the one I loved and the one who conned me. You’d laugh, I promise. And it won’t matter because you’re here now, I’m here now and everything before will just be… well, insignificant in comparison. I will tell you everything you want to know, I want you to do the same. I don’t want secrets between us.

I want you to mean it when you say you love me. I would love to hear it but I wouldn’t need to hear you say it to know its true. You will never doubt my feelings for you, you will never doubt my loyalty and I will never set out to make you jealous. I want us to be amazed by the strength of our affection. To feel lucky because we know we have it good.

I’m could be dramatic. Sometimes, its annoying but other times, its the best thing about me. I’m clumsy and chatty and fiesty and spirited. Im opinionated and I’m prone to extremes. When I’m happy I’m jumping for joy and when I’m sad, I wallow. I hope that you will love me for me because l intend to do the same.

I am building a good career for myself. I know you are too. I will admire your commitment to your work and I hope that you will love my dedication to mine. So we can do mundane things like talk about what a stressful day it was at work.

I want to do the corny things. Hold hands and go see a movie together. I want a real date-all dressed up at a nice restaurant. I want to do the domestic stuff, to bring you breakfast in bed and to make a meal with you. I want to dance with you, pray with you and to steal your clothes.

I want the real things too. I will want commitment and loyalty and a life together. I want us to be young together and to grow together. I want to be with you and help you to realize your goals. I want to celebrate your wins and mourn your losses. I want to take care of you.

I will wait for you, I will watch for you. I know you’re there somewhere.  But I just can’t wait until you are here.

  1. I was thinking, if we all have these feelings and all these ideas, why are we still in no relationships or in unsatisfied relationships? Think on that
