To My Boyfriend Who Said He Wouldn't Fall In Love

To My Boyfriend Who Said He Wouldn't Fall In Love

I'm so thankful that you did.


When I first met you I remember thinking to myself that you were the one for me. You always told me you would never date because it was too hard for you to have deep feelings for someone.

As time passed, you became the boyfriend that I have always wished for. I don't often thank you or act like I appreciate everything you do for me, but I'm more than thankful for you.

Thank you for always comforting me.

I cry, a lot. There has never been a time you have not been by my side when I felt like I failed a test, missed home too much, or just felt like crying because sometimes I'm a little too emotional.

You've always hugged me and comforted me to the best of your abilities. I don't think anything has comforted me more than you rubbing my back after a hard day.

Thank you for doing things for me even when you don't want to.

I know sometimes I ask you to do things, like go outside and grab my Uber Eats, and it annoys you. However, you still do it just in hopes to make me happy. Every day you continually do little things to make me happy and I don't always take in and appreciate them, but they mean the most to me.

Thank you for inviting me into your life.

It was hard for you to fully let me in, but you've done a more than amazing job at it. Having me over to meet your parents, opening up to me about your past, and many more things are the reasons that keep me growing closer and closer to you. I'm so thankful you were able to show me a part of you no one has seen.

Most of all, thank you for loving me.

You always said you couldn't have deep feelings for someone, but you somehow ended up having them for me. You've loved me in different aspects and have never given up even when things get rocky. You're one of my best friends, and I couldn't imagine it being any other way. So, thank you for loving me in a way no one else has.

I like you because, i love you despite, a letter to my future husband

I might not have met you yet, but I already know I love you.


Like other hopeless romantics, I have been continually disappointed with the Rom-Coms selection from Netflix. That was until I watched, Set It Up. The part of the movie that stuck with me the most was a scene at an engagement party. The bride-to-be gives a speech to her guest about a lesson her grandmother taught her. Long story short, she says to her fiance, I like you because, and I love you despite.


I noticed my mom and I were both teared up after listening. It made me think about how I want my marriage to be someday. Just days after watching this movie, I came across a letter I wrote to my future husband when I was 13 years old. I decided to take this concept from Set It Up and intertwine it with the letter I found from middle-school me.


Dear Future Husband,

I don't know you yet, but I know I love you like I've never loved anyone before. Sometimes I stay up at night and wonder how we'll meet, how our first date will go, and what color your hair will be. You'll have to be tall because this girl has legs meant for heels. I bet you love dogs and you buy me lots of ice cream. I wonder if you'll know my favorite. If you are here today as my future husband, chances are you know cookie dough is my favorite, and I'll bet you're a pretty fantastic human being.

You probably know I have a few faults...or many, many faults. Sometimes I get frustrated and it makes me cranky. I hate admitting I'm wrong and I laugh way too hard at jokes that aren't really that funny, sometimes at inappropriate times. You probably never know why I'm crying; I tend to cry for many different reasons. I talk really fast when I get excited, but sometimes I don't talk at all when I'm mad. I'm terrible at math, science isn't my thing either. I'm impossible to communicate with when I'm focused on a project, and I need complete silence when I write papers. Although it's important you know my faults, it's even more important that you've decided to love me regardless.

I don't know you yet, but I'm assuming you'll have some faults too.

I probably can't stand the way you say the word, "crayon" and you probably complain when I walk away instead of fixing a problem. I'm assuming sometimes you forget to tell me how good I'm looking on date nights, and you probably forget to close the door after you've opened it. Occasionally you forget to open the door for me and kiss me on the cheek-- something I hope you consider doing if you haven't already because my grandparents would expect nothing less. I bet you watch too many sports and sneeze way too loud. I guarantee I hate when you talk while yawning, and sometimes you cheat during card games. I bet you drive way too fast and don't stop at the stop sign for the entire 3-seconds. I'll bet you snore when you sleep and forget to put gas in the car.

But even with all these faults, there is a reason I like you.

I like the way you say my name each morning and follow up with a kiss on my forehead. The way you look in a suit and tie probably makes my knees week, and I bet you make me feel safe when I'm wrapped up in your arms. I like you because you hold my hand in public, but don't show too much affection because PDA is DISGUSTING. I like the way you connect with my brother and can hold a conversation on the back porch with my dad. If we are standing here together, you've probably stolen my mom's heart and I'll bet she can sense the love you have for me with every breath you take. I like that you understand we will be raising Australian Shepards together, cause what other dogs could we possibly have??

You probably honor every wish my grandma ever had for me and reflect the kind of love I see in my aunt Liz and uncle Duane's marriage. You might not like Obama as much as me, but you tolerate my presidential-crush. When you kiss me, I like how sparks fly, just like my grandma once described to me. I like the way you love me passionately and are the most unique individual I've ever met. I like that you go to ballets, even if you fall asleep, and I like how you dance with me in the kitchen. I like the goals you set for yourself and how considerate you are of those around you. I like that every problem we face, we face together, my hand holding onto yours. I like you because you chose to love me, even if I can be hard to love.


I know I will search high and low for you because the love we will have for one another is unlike any love I have ever know. I promise to love you for the things I like about you and to love you despite the faults you have. You are my prince charming, my soulmate, and my best friend. You're everything I've ever wished for.

I might not have met you yet, but I already know I love you.

I can't wait to meet you,

Your future wife,

Aneka Something
