A Love Letter to My Future Valentine

Dear Valentine, I haven't found you yet but I don't mind waiting. I know all great things take time and you'll be worth it.

A Love Letter to My Future Valentine

Dear Valentine,

I haven't found you yet but I don't mind waiting. I know all great things take time and you'll be worth it. I won't ask for a lot, hardly anything at all but your unconditional love. I hope our love is the kind that you don't have to think about. That you won't struggle to convince yourself to adore every part of who I am. I want it to come naturally like breathing or blinking; constantly present and attentively aware. I want to know all of you. I crave not only physical intimacy but mental as well, and I desire to understand who you are. A deeper connection with the part of you that you may not have shared yet; the real you. I want to memorize your soul which will never fade and wither through our old age. I want to give you my heart, in trust that it will be your most important possession and you will do anything and everything to protect it. In exchange for mine, I will seize your heart and refuse to let go. I'll keep you captive, a prisoner of my love.

I want to wake up in the morning by your side with a smile on my face because you're the first thing my eyes are blessed to see. I want to sit on a park bench drinking coffee and read you my favorite books. I want to stay up until 2 AM looking at the stars, hearing your secrets and introducing you to my recently discovered music. I want to look at you and feel the compulsive urge to smile, knowing whatever is going on around the globe is alright since I have you. I want inside jokes and nonverbal conversations. Our relationship will be an adventure in itself, but with you my beloved, I want to discover the world.

I have an overabundance of love to give you, and I'm anxious for our future. Never will you doubt my love, or question my affections for you. Although I can be unsure of a lot of things in life, I never want to be unsure of you. I vow to support you in your wildest dreams and to help you create even more earth-shattering ones in the future. I pledge to cherish and spoil you with unrelenting devoted passion. I promise to only produce good in your life and to be everything you need and more. I won't ask you to be perfect, but in my eyes, you will be. I vow to daily work on my personal growth for you, for me, for us; and I will encourage you to do so as well.

When the struggles come and trust me, Darling they will, I promise to help you carry the weight. To be the comfort you need when you are shattered. Your burdens are mine, and together we can tackle the world.

I suppose I lied when I said I wouldn't ask for a lot, because I need a lover, a dreamer, a hopeless romantic, an adventurer, a best friend, a fickle spirit and a compliant visionary. I need someone as crazy as me to laugh our way through the difficulties of life. I need someone to rival my electrifying spirit and balance everything I am not. But all these things will unconsciously be everything you are. Flawlessly designed for me, in the end, all I need is you.

Primarily, I want you to feel the same way too. For if not, I shall forever be my own valentine.

With all the love in my heart,

A patiently searching sentimentalist

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
