To my future girlfriend (hopefully wife):
I’m [name removed for security & privacy reasons]. Nice to meet you. I’m excited that we’re on this journey together. I like kacchi biryani a lot, please tell me you love to eat. I can’t cook but we can go out for food. I like to create things, something related to DIY. I like taking photos, art and music. And l love to read, whatever it is, a poem, novel or non-fiction. And if you break my heart I would probably write a poem about it. (Though I hope you won’t.) I have no idea what I’m doing with my life but I do know that I put hundred percent into the things I love. And if I’m with you then I will probably really love you. If you ask what does love feel like, I try to explain but I’m not the best with words so maybe I will show you when time will come. People say, relationships are complicated but I think people are complicated. Something you learn about me is I’m loyal and faithful. But things aren’t always amazing though. I’m not perfect. I’m boring, stupid and introvert. I’m not very good at relationships and liking people in general. So I think you’re gonna be stuck with me for a while. What I’m trying to say is I am just a human and I know you are too. I struggle with depression that can be pretty bad for some days. I’m so distracted and sometimes I go so far for things and then suddenly I feel like stop. I have a bad habit, sometimes I cancel plans for no reason. But I promise I will do whatever it takes to keep you happy. I’m willing to go out of my comfort zone for you. I can’t promise you that I will bring you the world or moon but I promise I will listen to all of your stories even when I am busy or tired. I promise I will take you on so many little tours and so many little dates. Though now I’m just a third-year university-going student and basically unemployed. But it’s about the future, right! I wish we’re gonna go on so many adventures and visit so many countries, eating different types of food, watching movies, listening to songs. And most importantly I will give you the reason to stay alive. Because I struggle with that sometimes too. I promise to make the most of the time together whether that be a month, a year, a decade or maybe forever. I promise there’ll never be a dull moment. And I wear hijab. Please don’t tell me you hate it. And don’t tell me to change because this is the way I am. Now, just trust me when I say I love you. I will love you for exactly who you are.
See you soon…
