Dear Future Partner


Hi! 

I’m Inah. It’s August 2, 2020. I’m 28, and I was just talking to my friends while thinking of you. Well, of course, I don’t know who you are yet, but I am very excited to meet you. I guess it would still take a while before we get to meet each other, but that’s one life event that I keep on looking forward to. One reason I keep moving forward.

I’ve been waiting for you for 28 years. I may have a few crushes and one failed relationship, but I know that the relationship with you is the only relationship I want to have. I don’t know why, but I’m confident that the wait will be worth it. It has always been, right? The waiting has made me a better person in many ways. I’m kinda glad you did not meet the earlier versions of me because, boy, I was toxic. Haha. I am still continuing to improve myself to be the best life partner you can have, and I know I’ll grow more with you. I look forward to that.

I don’t know what to say. I just hope that when we meet, we are both ready. I hope we are both full of stories to share with each other. We are both ready to support each other. We both have dreams, and we’ll push each other always to be our better versions.

I hope that I’ll be good enough for you and that you’ll accept me just as I am. I’m sorry because I might embarrass you most of the time. You see, I love making videos, and if you check my social profiles, you’ll notice that I post anything I want. I hope it’s okay with you and your family. Hahaha. Accept me as I am, okay? Because I’m sure I will accept you for who you are. No doubt!

I don’t really have a type. Well, maybe I have. But I’ll love you as you are. I’m sure of that. I don’t know how we’ll meet. Will it be a simple story? Will it be a crazy one? Will our first meeting be in slow-mo? I don’t know. But I know it’ll be memorable, and it’s gonna be a moment I will treasure my whole life.

You don’t need to provide for our future family on your own. Don’t be discouraged if you think you’re “not successful yet” because I am not there yet too. Remember that we’re in this together. We will both provide for our future family. We will share every expense and every house chore. I want you to allot money for your personal projects and trips too because I want the same for me.

I hope that when we encounter problems, we remember that it should be us versus the problem. When you get in a relationship with me, know that as a partner, I am your pair. It’s not you versus your problems. We will resolve everything together because I know we’re stronger together.

I hope you don’t expect me to be cheerful and perky all the time because I am one overthinker and emotional empath. I am not perfect, and I have my flaws too. I always say I hate clingy people, but I think I’ll be clingy with you. I’m not sure yet, but that’s a heads up. I hope it’s okay with you. I’ve waited for almost three decades, so let me hug you tight and kiss you whenever I want because you made me wait, okay?

I am excited to talk to you about life. I am eager to know your thoughts and understand the way you think. I am excited to learn from you, and I am excited for you to help me understand things I don’t know much about. I hope you’ll be patient because most of the time, I am not.

I look forward to spending nights with you, talking about every topic under the sun. I look forward to cooking for you, eating with you, and taking care of you and our future family.

You don’t have to rescue me all the time. I’m one strong woman. Those 28 years of waiting… They’ve made me strong in so many ways, and I’ll tell you every little experience because I love talking about myself. However, there’s one thing I’d like you to help me with. I hope you are not afraid of cockroaches because I am scared of them. We need someone in our family who can “kill” them. I don’t really like the thought of killing them, but we have no choice.

Know that, with me, you can cry and you can be tired. You don’t have to be strong all the time. We’re human, and I am one understanding woman. You’re lucky! Kidding. Oh yeah. I love to tell jokes most of the time, and sarcasm is my second language, but I’ll try to be better. At least, with you, I will.

Lastly, I’d like to thank you for choosing me and pursuing me. The 28 years of waiting made me feel insecure sometimes. Those years made me think that maybe I’m not worthy enough or that I am wrong for setting standards. But I always hold on to the thought that someone… you… are there preparing yourself to fight for me too.

This was a writing exercise, my friend and I did on August 2, 2020. I just want to put it here for my future partner to read. 😊
