dear future husband:

i’m a realist.  but i’m also a hopeless romantic.  let me explain.

 i know you’re out there, and maybe i’ve already met you, but i also know, that i’m going to have to go through a lot of yucky situations to find you.  i’m going to try to not let these experiences make me rotten and cynical.  but if, when you meet me, i’m cynical, please be patient with me.  i know i’ll be awesome at being in love, but you might have to chip away a few layers to get me there.  i’m really sorry.  but remember diamonds come after thousands of years of heat and pressure.

yeah, i just compared myself to a diamond.

sorry. that was cheesy.
