Perfect Flaws and All

Raw, Unfiltered Thoughts
Dear future husband

Dear future husband

I hope this letter finds you well. I don’t know you yet. I don’t know your name or where you are from. Maybe we’ve crossed paths. Maybe we haven’t. But I’m certain you are out there, somewhere. Do you wonder what our future will be like? No? Yes? Okay! I wanna tell you a few things about me.

To me love is not new; I have loved and lost. I have loved and trusted that I was loved too but what I believed to be love wasn’t all true.  I have also made a lot of mistakes. I’m not an easy person to love. I will not always say or do the right thing, but I hope you’ll be able to love me regardless. I’m not perfect and I’ll never be but becoming a better person is something I strive for.

Sometimes I wonder how life is treating you. What battles you’ve fought. Your failures, your fears, and your success. I hope you are living the life you always wanted.

I’ve been talking to God a lot lately about you and I pray that you allow God to shape you. I pray that you will let Him lead you. Above all, I need you to trust in God and to continue walking with Him.

Dear future husband,
I can’t wait to take evening walks with you, talk to you for hours, kiss you and fall asleep in your arms. I can’t wait to wake up next to you every morning, watch you as you sleep and kiss your neck gently so as not to wake you. I look forward to sharing inside jokes with you and being cuddled up on the couch on lazy weekends.

Dear future husband,
I’m curious about your life; what gives you joy.  What you are passionate about. What kind of books you like to read. I wonder how your kisses will taste. How you look like. I hope that you are goofy, reasonably social, and if you are anything like me, you love working out. I also hope that you are growing into the man that God wants you to be.

Dear future husband,
There is something I need to confess. I’m not ready to meet you, just yet. I’m still learning to better love God and also myself. The woman I am today is not ready to be the woman you’ll marry; God is still working on me. I want to be the best woman I can be. I want to be able to love you the way you deserve to be loved. I want to be your best friend, your confidant. I wanna have fun marrying you. I believe God is writing a beautiful story for us.

Dear future husband,
Things will certainly not be easy but I promise to be the one decision that you’ll never regret. I will challenge you. I will support you. I will grow with you. I want you to know that I choose you and if you are half as amazing as I think you’ll be, I don’t mind waiting for you. One day when the time is right, we’ll meet. Until then, I’m thinking of you and I’m praying for you.

With love,
Your future bride.

  1. This should be everyone’s letter to their future husband and it could also make for good vows. I almost cried.

  2. This piece reaffirms my belief in true love…the words are pure, beautiful,…am speechless and envious of him as well ?

    1. Thanks Keith. I encourage you to keep on believing! We all deserve to be with someone with whom we can build a beautiful life 🙂

  3. Hello future Bride,

    I love this letter, so touching. Maybe your future husband read it already 🤔and is waiting for you to be ready for him 🤔At some point reading this, I found myself thinking of my future husband too 🙆🏽‍♀️
    Great piece 👌🏽

    Yours truly,
    Future bridal team.

    1. Thanks dear. You are so kind. As cliché as this may sound, I’m sure when the time is right we’ll meet our future husbands 🙂
