Just an interesting little idea that crept up on me after I watched a Youtuber make a video to his Future Wife. I was really inspired by it, and I would DIE if I married someone and realised that they did something like this for 'me' :)
YES, I know, how romantic and hopeless and kind of icky but hey, I like romantic gestures and they're sweet, so shush. Let's be real here.
So that's what I'm going to do today! This is Part 1 of a series I like to call, 'Your Future Wife is Insane. You're welcome'
No, really this series is just called, 'Dear Future Husband'.
Prepare to have your Feels punched ;) <3
Nice start, hey? Just give me my oscar now for this award-winning letter writing. If you swoon, I'll catch you.
I'm not sure whether we know each other at this very point in time in my life, or if I'll meet you in a few years time, or if it's only a countdown now until we meet, but sooner or later we're going to have a really romantic moment together that will just set off a serious of events and start our own rom-com movie that is our life.
If we don't know each other yet, that leads me to asking myself,
'How will we meet?'
Will it be romantic like all the Rom-Coms I have seen where the Female and Male lead see each other, their eyes connect, and everything runs in slow motion as you pose like a model and pout at each other, or is it going to be like the Rom-Coms where the Leads hate each other and mock each other until one time they are fighting and they just reach this heightened tension of 'I hate you so much I just have to kiss you to let you know how much I hate you', or is it going to be like what most relationships are? Friendly at first, but not friends for a while. Friendship grows, and soon you're chatting and hanging out and messaging each other on whatever Social Network there is now, and then before you know it, you're falling for each other. You're basically in a relationship without all the physical intimate contact.
Whichever way we meet, I know that at that time we won't be thinking it's any different. (Unless you're like one of those cute old couples where the man remembers exactly how they met, and how he just knew she was the one and what she was wearing. That's totally cute by the way, ugh, Feels everywhere for old cute couples)
I do think about you a lot. I wonder what you'll look like and whether you're going to be the type of height that towers over my 4'11" frame, or somewhere close to my height which will forever make us the Cute Short Couple. I wonder if you'll be shy, or outgoing, because goodness knows that if you're shy and I'm already this shy, we'll probably never speak to each other until the moment you propose or on our Wedding Day.
But in all honesty, it doesn't really matter what you look like. Yes, I know that's a really cliche and, truthfully, bunch of lies because attraction does matter, but I'm talking about the fact that if you had brown or blue eyes it wouldn't matter to me, I'll still look longingly into them until it's uncomfortable and then I have to look somewhere completely unsubtle , like the ground or ceiling. I won't matter to me whether you're totes buff, or a bit chubby, or thinner than I am, because I'll be wrapping my arms around you anyway with love and probably too much affection that needs to be diluted in shorter bursts. You might spend hours on your hair, but I won't care because I'll be right beside you, messing it up and giggling because you're so cute when you try make it all ready for the public eye.
It makes me so happy to just day dream what you will be like. Will you be interested in books, like me? Or will you be passionate about sports, while I watch on and cheer you on while I read my book? All this is up in the air, speculation, until the fateful moment we meet and just like an invisible rope between us being pulled slowly to each other, we'll make contact.
But, in parallel, do you think of me too? Do you stop in your day, or during a talk about marriage (Yes, let's be honest, there are a lot of talks about preparing for marriage and how it's important in the Church for the YSA) and wonder what I am going to be like?
But enough about when we will meet, how we will court, and then how we will inevitably lead to marriage.
I hope that we will be a team, like a two oxen who carry the yoke together, helping one another to reach the potential that we know we both have, and to become the best versions of ourselves. I hope that having me around you will help you to become the man that you could , and having you around me will help me to be the woman that I know I can be, and that Heavenly Father wants me to be. I hope that just being in my presence makes you want to be better, to do better, to speak better, and to raise yourself, just as being in your presence will inspire me to want to be and do better. Whether we know each other or not, I cannot wait until that moment hits me where you just look like husband material, and I am wishing to myself that you'd just put a ring on it already so that we can get the rest of our eternal marriage beginning :)
Your Future Wife.
