Challenge Day 3: Letter to my significant other (or future significant other)
Hey “Insert Name Here,”
I don’t really know where to start. How do you write a letter to someone you don’t even know yet? I have no idea when I’ll meet you, if I already have. I don’t know who you are or what you do. I don’t know whether your crazy or sane or a little bit of both. Maybe you’re a teacher at some middle school, maybe you’re an athlete, or a computer scientist. Maybe you’re one of those people who get paid for trying new flavors of ice cream. I hope you’re a magician.
I have no idea what you do and who you are, but for now all these questions are unanswered. And I find that so exciting. You excite the fuck out of me and I don’t even know who you are. Damn, slaying the game already.
I can’t really say I’m sitting here pining away for you, wondering when you’re going to come into my life and change my world. Because:
- Fuck that.
- You have your own life to live and your own reality to create.
So take your time, because I’m doing the same thing.
I won’t bother introducing myself to you, because you probably already know all the fun and terrible details of my life by now. So I guess I’ll just make some predictions about our life together.
Prediction 1: We live in an apartment (hopefully) in Canada. With windows. Lost of windows with our rescue dog.
Prediction 2: We met through a mutual friend while I was in school; We also hated each other.
Prediction 3: We have a shared dislike for The Great Gatsby and we both think pizza is overrated.
Prediction 4: Our first date was at a Denny’s.
Prediction 5: We bond over food, movies, and the type of music you listen to when you’re high. I drag you to James Wan’s horror movies that you don’t want to see but you force me to go to the beach when it’s hot as hell and humid so it’s only fair.
I’m going to stop there. But those are my predictions for now.
I hope where you are that you find yourself before we find each other. I don’t want to get too cheesy. But I hope that you struggle and are hit by obstacle after obstacle and rise higher than you ever expected.
I hope your progression in life is one that leads you to your wildest achievements and that you receive as much as you give– and whether or not I’ll be there for those, I hope they are memories that inspire you to be the best you can be. Because knowing the kind of person I want and need in life, I have no doubt you’ll have the best heart that I could ever imagine.
Hope to see you soon.
