Dear future person who will hold my heart,
I’m going to be honest with you. I’m afraid. Afraid of giving my heart to someone again. I’ve been hurt and I have hurt. I know you’ll treat me the way I want to treat you. With love, acceptance and honesty. I know I can be complicated. I just have issues trusting and letting people in. It used to be easy. It used to be so natural. But I come to you today and ask of you to understand.
I’m old school with a bit of new school. I like to take care of people. I like to be taken care of. I love my freedom and someone to share it with. That is all I want. I do not want to limit you or you to limit me. I want us to be two old souls. Dancing to music, laughing all the time. I want us to one day sit on a park bench and still feel the exact same way like when we first met. I want the romance. I want that love. The trust. The support. I see my parents and they’ve been through a lot but they’re always together. It’s a beautiful sight.
I don’t want us to keep things to ourselves. I want us to be open and pure. If we fight, lets deal with it then and not go to bed angry or upset. I want to know that we will make it through. I just want us to be happy together.
I never thought I could feel this way. Not again, but in a whole different way. I want you to feel like my equal and I hope you want the same for me. Your motivation will be inspirational, I know with you we will accomplish so much. I want you to know that I’ll take care of you. I’ll treat you with the respect you deserve. I want to make you smile with my weird jokes and awkwardness. Please accept me for who I am–including my flaws which are many. I know you’ll challenge me in a good way. I know with you we will always make it through whatever life throws our way. Dear, I want you to know I’m ready.
