dear future husband,

please teach our sons the art of romance. teach them to court and charm.  teach them to call when they say they will.  teach them respect for themselves and for their dates.  teach them that how they dress reflects how they respect themselves and others. teach them to win and lose with dignity (no usain bolt level of ego).  teach them to have direction, ambition and a work ethic.  teach them to pray and hope. teach them sympathy and how to serve.

i am so tired of guys not hitting this standard. we women have cried, pulled our hair and wasted so much time on boys who couldn’t be men.

teach our sons to be men. in essence, teach them to be you.

dear future husband,

sometimes i wonder what you’re doing right at this moment. how do you spend your days pre-me? are you still in school? do you play sports with the guys? kiss all the girls? do you go on crazy adventures?

whatever you are doing, i hope you’re saving up some good stories. i love stories.

dear future husband:

on my computer, there is a file containing letters to future me reminding myself why none of my exes are right for me.  it’s a trick i picked up from how i met your mother to prevent any emotional or physical backsliding.  anyway, i can’t wait for when i can just delete those letters and replace them with a picture of us.

dear future husband,

words are powerful.  when we are talking about each other to other people, or even to each other, let’s always try to be kind.  it might be hard when i’m crazy and you don’t understand [or visa versa], but i think it will be beneficial for us.

dear future husband:

i think spending time together is very important. but we get each other for all eternity. so, let’s live up the girl/guy nights, talk to other people at parties, and keep our individuality.

and speaking of girl/guy nights: that is when i will do all my chic-flick [or real housewives reality show] watching and where you can do all your shooting video game playing [or whatever stuff you like to do that i don’t like to do].
