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:

i recently read this quote from comedian Mindy Kaling, “I don’t want to hear about the endless struggles to keep sex exciting, or the work it takes to plan a date night. I want to hear that you guys watch every episode of The Bachelorette together in secret shame, or that one got the other hooked on Breaking Bad and if either watches it without the other, they’re dead meat. I want to see you guys high-five each other like teammates on a recreational softball team you both do for fun. I want to hear about it because I know it’s possible, and because I want it for myself.”

it made me think about how sometimes in relationships, we dwell on the bad things. you chomp your gum.  i zone out whenever you talk about sports, etc.  perhaps, instead of thinking of all these bad things, we focus on the good things: i gave excellent back rubs, and you make me see the type of person i want to be.

you in? you willing to focus on those positives with me?
