Can I start this letter by saying I’m in love with the idea of you. That’s pretty ridiculous right? I think of you more often these days and I wonder… where you are right now? Would you love to travel the beautiful Philippines with me? Are you from Manila or from Cebu? Do you also admire LeBron James? How many girls have you kissed? Most of all I’m dying to know if you ever think about….. me.
I’m just 22 now, still a long journey before I get to the aisle to meet you. Ain’t ready to be part of MRS Association yet. But as early as now I want you to be really certain about what you’re getting into. Cause I’m not a princess, who is pretty and girly but imaginary. But I’m a beautiful mess, who is bitchy and crazy but trustworthy.
I want to discuss here my ideal guy. But that would make you unrealistic. And it’s very unfair in your part. So I won’t say anything in relation to that. I won’t say that I hope you’re smart and wise. Strong and strict. Daring and caring. No I won’t say that. Never. Haha. I’m just kidding sweetie. I will take you just as you are. 😛
My darling, I’m thrilled and afraid about what we’re going to fight about? Is it about our different sports team? Or about the number of our children? Or my cooking ability cause you know that it’s a joke. Or might be about the television channel? Or my singing voice that sucks. I know we would fight a lot. But at the end of the day, we’d rather love. 😛
What is love by the way? Would you like to teach me the art of love forever? But you know it wouldn’t be free even if you are the teacher. Cause you’ve got to pay the bills and feed me and your children. You’ve got to send them to school and to the park and to the museum. But I think I can teach you too, that’s why I would help you with all our expenses. Sounds fair right? 🙂
However, you’ve got to understand that I don’t know a thing about married life. But I’m pretty sure it’s not a walk in the park. That’s why I plan not to plunge myself to that significant chapter of life unless I’m physically, emotionally, mentally, financially and spiritually ready. And for an honest assessment, that’s still many years from now. So bear with me honey. I tell you, it’s worth the wait.
Then if time comes when we’re already in one roof, can you please help me with the laundry? That chore is killing me. So.. hmm can we take turns or have a schedule?? Great! Thanks sweetie! Another is can we fight calmly? No shouting at the top of our lungs please? And oh don’t you worry about some of women’s demands like asking her man to say she’s beautiful every single day. My mom already told me that I am. And I believe her. So it’s enough. 😛
Is today closer to the day I would meet you? If yes, I will kiss the wind and hope that it will reach your face. So you would feel my affection and be comforted that someone’s soul will soon meet yours.
Man of my life…. I want you to know that the reason I wrote this letter is for you to know that I love you… even before I met you.
Your Other Half,
PS: This is the second version of my “A Letter To My Future Other Half” cause I’ve lost the original one I’ve written in 2008. Big thanks to the post of my fellow blogger Bagotilyo. I was reminded when I read his. So I wrote again.
And to you, my wonderful readers, I challenge you to write your own letters too if you want to. 🙂
