One reader has been kind enough to send in her love letter to the man of her dreams, who she hasn’t met yet, but is hopeful that she will some day. It’s so inspiring to share something so positive!
Dear man of my dreams,
I realize that some people would think that I must be a little off my rocker, so to speak. Not only am I sitting here writing a letter to an unknown man, someone I haven’t yet met, but I am writing it to him in the future. But it all makes sense when you really get to know me, because everyone knows that I want the best for myself, and that I will not settle for second best or even less, especially when it comes to relationships. I think I deserve to have a life-long lover who is the man of my dreams, and I know that you are out there somewhere.
I want to first of all tell you I am perfectly willing and able to be patient and wait for you, and I am also willing to pay attention in my life for the moment you come along. It’s my belief that too many times we miss opportunities to meet people who may be important in our lives, usually because we are distracted by all the things that we must attend to in life. But even worse is the fact (and I have enough friends to know that it IS a fact) that women and men often panic in their loneliness, become desperate for companionship, and then become involved in something that might very well be impossible to get out of. At least get out of with your sanity and health intact.
I know that another problem is that while we are looking for a preconceived person, the one we have been waiting for may slip through our fingers. That’s why I keep an idea of perfection in my heart, a pure, almost spiritual concept, but I don’t let myself get too hung up on what I think you will look like. I know that your physical appearance may not be what I was expecting, and I will be OK with that.
I am also completely aware that I may already have met you, but that I don’t know you yet. Sometimes we run into a person in a random, chance way and then go on with life, never suspecting that an important event may have just happened. Then later, sometimes years later, your life intersects again and you remember. At any rate, our real, lifelong relationship hasn’t started yet, but I know it’s out there in my future, and so are you.
All of this anticipation can sometimes get to be a little hard to take, granted. But because I know you are out there, I’m content to trust life and the universe and know that our meeting will happen, that it’s just a matter of when and how. I am also confident that when we do finally come fact to face, you will know it in the same way that I do – with an unwavering, absolute certainty that the most important event in our lives has happened. Love will bring us together, and love will keep us together, for all of eternity. I can’t wait to meet you, my love.
Your future wife
