If you haven't met me yet, good. I'd like it to stay like that for a while, while I figure some things out. But if you have met me, there's some things I feel I need to clear before you get the wrong idea.

To my future husband, life partner, whatever...

If you haven't met me yet, good.

I'd like it to stay like that for a while, while I figure some things out. But if you have met me, there's some things I feel I need to clear before you get the wrong idea.

If you know me, you know I'm unapproachable. Believe it or not it's on purpose. So I assure you I'm not in a bad mood, I'm not trying to be rude, and I don't have a bad attitude.

I have walls, so I guess what I'm asking is for you to give me my accord, because I have bought too many times into dreams I couldn't afford.

I hope that you are secure enough to fill the gaps in my insecurities.

I hope that you are the type of man who when your friends ask you how your girl is doing you don't have to ask, "which one?

" I hope that we have a type of love where when people are asked what type of love they want they will always say this one.

I hope we have a love where you can be my opposite but at the same time my equal.

A love where we can be vulnerable, where even though you choose not to tell me about your transgressions you know that I forgive you, and I accept you, not as new,

but covered in the scars of everything you have been through because I know there is so much more that you can be, and I hope you can be just as forgiving when it comes to me.

A love where we don't have this incessant need to shout it from the rooftops to confirm how we feel, a love that is so low-key even I wonder if it's real.

I'm not saying I'm petty, but if you want to act funny, honey we can act hilarious. I'm not like other women you've met, I learned from the best.

I have dealt with men who were magicians who managed to pull disappearing acts from right before my eyes, so we can both play tricks.

I am the type of woman who can go to war with a man's ego armed with nothing more than blue ticks and I will win.

So I don't want to keep worrying about where my place is with you, if I'm third or fourth.

I want us to see the world beyond our insecurities and not have the only places we visit just being back and forth.

So before I sign off, some very important points to note: I hope you can cook.

You have to like Beyonce, I hope that you're patient, and I hope you understand that patience is not just the ability to wait, but the ability to keep calm while you wait.

So I'll need you to remember that especially when I can't decide what to wear or where I want to eat or how I want to wear my hair.

Love isn't always so demanding, sometimes it's just us, and sometimes we just have to vibe with it. So to my future husband, I don't want us to fall in love, I want us to try and rise in it.
