An Open Letter to my Future Partner

Dear You,

I don’t know if we’re married or not so that’s why I kept it very general. I hope you know that at this moment I love kids, puppies, romantic gestures, and all that sappy stuff. I just hope you won’t give up on me when I get stubborn, anxious, over-the-top, and sometimes even a bit crazy. I think I might have an anxiety problem. Remind me to get that checked out please?

I’m grateful you’ve stuck around as long as you have and I already know that I love you. I hope you don’t mind when I get the way I am sometimes. Especially since I know I can be a lot to handle, but I promise to try my hardest not to. I get emotional really easily and I suck at organizing my thoughts (well at this moment in time at least) so please don’t hate me for that. I don’t like having issues unsolved and I prefer when things are wrapped up neatly in a little bow if they can be. I’m quite messy right now and I’m not too sure if it continues until I get older but again, I apologize.

I hope you realize by now that when I decide on something I won’t stop until I get it/get it done. I also am so hard-headed sometimes that I will continue to argue with you just to keep from admitting that I’m wrong. I won’t be surprised if I’m still like that when you read this. Sorry. Also, I say sorry a lot. I don’t really understand why and I hope I’m able to tell you in the future because I have a much better understanding of myself but I’m not really sure if that’ll happen.

Please don’t let me push you away. I don’t intend to but I know I do it. I just hope I stopped that habit sometime in between now and then. I’m going to do the best that I can but I know I’ll make mistakes and I’m going to be hard-headed but don’t let that stop you. Because if you promise to still love me and stick with me, then I know I’ll love you to the best of my ability and I will be the best person I can be for you and our future family.

Sincerely,
Me
