Dear Future Boyfriend

I know these types of letters start with dear future spouse, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

There are several things you need to know about me and I’ll need to know about you if this thing is going to work. A few things we’ll know immediately, like are we both a package deal? Cause, yes, I am one. Or you let your daily horoscope lead your day and I’m not sure I’m okay with that.

A few things we may take months to uncover… I may or may not fib about who my favorite basketball team is and say it’s yours or you may have said you look my spaghetti just to be nice but really wish I would use my garlic.

A couple things may not come out for years due to embarrassment, unimportant or a plain dull fact we never thought about. And that’s okay.

I need someone who is going to be okay with the fact that I am sick. And that there will be days you will have to repeat yourself. There will be times when I cannot sleep and times I cannot stay awake.

I need someone who will understand that I will give them my all, but sometimes my all is going to be sitting on the couch with you listening about your day and watching Netflix. Other times neither one of us will be getting out of bed.

I need you, future shared love of my life (I said I was a package deal) to know that you will be loved and honored. You will be wanted. You will have my heart and soul, just in a different way.

And if you can handle that and love me when I am not lovable at all, then we can talk about dear future husband.
