To the Man I See a Future With

To the Man I See a Future With

It's as vibrant as your soul.

I dreamt of you last night. In the solace of my unconscious mind, I allowed myself to envision a life with you. I was provided with my version of our future. It was just another day. We woke up. You took a shower, and I made breakfast. We ate, you grabbed your briefcase and then kissed me quickly as you left to go to work. The simplicity of the moment overwhelmed me. I woke up, head in the clouds, wondering if that’s what a typical morning with you would look like years from now.

Hours later, I still find myself lost in a daydream with you. Vividly, I see our routine and life unfold. As you cross my mind today, there are so many things I wish I could tell you. So, man I see a future with, here are a few pieces of information I would like to share with you.

Never stop pursuing your dreams. Your lofty aspirations and tenacious work ethic are incredibly attractive. Watching you achieve your goals, milestone by milestone, amazes me. Seeing these characteristics now, I know you will work twice as hard to provide for a family in the future.

I am here. No matter where life’s guiding hand takes us, know that I am always with you. If not physically, then mentally, I am cheering you on in all that you do. I am your biggest fan, and nothing will ever change that.

The love you bear for your family melts my heart. Hearing you speak of your siblings and what they mean to you puts into perspective how truly family oriented you are. Your kind heart and caring soul encompass everyone around you. That kind of love is contagious.

I believe in you. You are the most capable man I have ever met. A problem solver by nature, your mind will deliver you solutions to even the most complex problems. It is simply wondrous to observe you overcome any obstacle thrown your way.

I promise to never let you become complacent. As easy as it is to get caught in the cycle of monotony, I will challenge you to do more. Whether it’s taking on a new hobby or introducing a new Saturday morning tradition, you will never be bored.

I will be your best friend. After a long day, there will always be someone to listen to your triumphs or failures. Even on your darkest day, I will be there to shoulder some of the burden. Never again will you feel alone.

I will make time for you. In a world dictated by schedules, you will remain a priority. Time has the ability to warp us into creatures of habit. Home, eat, sleep and repeat is an easy routine to fall into. If we pursue a life together, I resolve to do as much as I can to meet you half-way.

I promise to let you lawyer me. This translates into copious amounts of wheeling and dealing with you. With all of your technical jargon, you will undoubtably get me to agree to something only to make it seem as if it were my idea in the first place. (Yes, you are that good).

I will respect you. This is important. I will respect your need for space. Your need for quiet, or stability. Whatever you require, I will try my hardest to provide for you.

Most of all, I want you to know that I can see it. I can see the adventurous, comfortable, and borderline chaotic life that may await us. It is as vibrant as your soul. Although neither one of us know with absolute certainty where life may lead us, I whole heartedly pray it's to one another.

To My Future Fiance, If You’re Proposing To Me For The Instagram Content, Have Fun Posting A Video Of Me Saying ‘No’

Whoever you are, take notes for future reference.


OK, OK, he can propose to me in public, but if it's a grand event that has nothing to do with my character, then 100% I'm saying, "No, try again."

I hope that one day someone special has my heart and wants to spend the rest of their life with me. But I want them to really know who I am. Inside and out and all around. I'm not a showy person, I'm not into social media, and I don't want a 20-carat ring. There's nothing wrong with any of those things, but it's never been for me. It's just not me.

I'm never going to do anything because someone else or the general society thinks or says I should do it. I like to defy society and do what's best for me. Even if I do something that is acceptable by society's standards, I'm not doing it for them, I'm doing it for me. I always say, "If someone wants to get to know me then they shouldn't judge what they see, read, or hear, they should just say, 'Hi,' and we can go from there." I don't post something for others to see, I post it for myself. Because it makes me feel good. Because I impulsively want to.

So, I want my fiancé's initial feeling of complete and absolute love to be blurted out to me ASAP. You don't have to keep your passions hidden while you plan a huge fiasco with balloons and confetti and "Will you marry me?" clouds in the sky. I don't need that for you to tell me you love me.

My dream proposal would be us cooking and taste tasting dinner, dancing, and singing to our favorite song when you just pause to look at me and ask, "You wanna get married?"

Of course, I'd question if you're being serious or not, but if we've already discussed the future and our hearts are in the right place, I'd melt in your arms.

You're not proposing to me to show off our love to your Facebook friends. You're proposing to me because you want nothing else but me. If you want to plan something special afterward, go ahead. Thoughtful surprises make me feel so special, but make sure that it's planned for me.

My long-distance boyfriend recently surprised me with a visit by calling my parents to figure out just how to leave me open-mouthed. I realized how much I appreciated the planning and arrangement. No one has ever done that for me before and I won't lie, I loved it. I wouldn't mind a fun proposal. I would be eternally grateful for the thought behind it, but I want the initial question to be intimate, personal, and tailored for me.

At the end of the day, sure, the proposal can be out and about in public, but I want the focus to be us. Not just me or you, but our relationship and our future. I don't care if other people don't think you love me enough because the proposal wasn't a showstopper. I know how you feel about me and that's all that matters.

16 Wedding Gifts Under $50 That'll Have Any Wedding Guest Say 'I Do'

Because being on a budget doesn't mean you have to arrive at a wedding empty-handed.


If you're on a budget but have a wedding to go to, it can be hard to find an affordable wedding gift you can buy for the bride and groom. You don't want to show up empty-handed, but you also don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a gift when there are plenty of other people attending who are better off affording certain items. (A good rule of thumb? Always try to "pay for your plate" — or the cost of what the bride and groom likely paid for you to be there.)

Most of the time, there are lots of things you can find on a registry under $50. Whether it be towels, a waffle maker or oven mitts, you can usually find SOMETHING in your price range. If not, this list is for you.

Brides-to-be: Here is a list of things to add to your wedding registry for your broke AF friends.
