Dear Future Husband

Preface: Under the influence of alcohol, my friends and I used to write letters to ourselves, each other and past, current and future men. We would seal them up and set a date for when we were to open them. It was like a drunken time capsule if you will. Well, we kinda dropped the ball and hadn't open our letters in three years. So I was totally surprised to find a letter to my future hubby in the pile. The crazy thing is that I was wiser three years ago after a drink of vodka (or 4). If only I had listened to myself. Instead, I took another detour to shitty relationship town and wasted a couple years of my life on a guy who really didn't give a crap.

I think it's fate that I found this letter now. Now that I'm older, wiser and finally truly open to finding what I want and deserve. And Meghan Trainor's song just came out and we are totes on the same page. So without further adieu, below is my letter to my future husband. Verbatim.


Dear Future Hubby,

Where the fuck are you? I know it's taken me a while to be ready for you, I shall admit. I had some wild oats to sew, experiences to be had. But if you had shown yo face maybe I would have reconsidered. Regardless, I'm ready for you now and I know what I want and what I deserve. I want someone who gets me and appreciates the me that I love. Someone who challenges me and makes me a better person. I want honesty and someone who will be there for me through good times and bad. And OK, I want passion and butterflies. Also, I've been through a lot when it comes to guys. I've been hurt and I've held back, but I always believed when it was the right guy things would somehow work out. I still want to believe you're out there. The older I get, the harder it is to believe. But I can't give up. I vow to be open to you and put myself out there.


So in my last relationship, I literally had none of those things. Except maybe passion. But I did put myself out there and I learned a ton. So now that I've found this letter, I really won't settle for anything less. What would you say to your future hubby's?
