Dear Future Partner,
There are probably 6 billion people in the world. 6 billion different people with different names, different faces and different perspectives. Some of them are happy, some are confused, some are hurting and some are indifferent. 6 billion people in this huge world with 7 different continents, quite a big number yet amazingly one of them is YOU.
Perhaps, I’ll meet you in a little coffee shop where I usually study out and burn candles for the next dreadful exams, perhaps I’ll meet you at your favorite bookstore, in my church where you are probably sitting at the back, or perhaps at my favorite restaurant or the usual stories in movies where we just bump into each other and capture each other’s thoughts and leave each other’s deep impression. I am just not sure where I will be meeting you but maybe, just maybe, you are just a quaint for all these years. Haha. You might be reading this right now. I just do not know but one thing’s for sure, God is full of surprises.
I may not know who you are yet- your name, your smile, albeit I’m pretty sure you have that lovely face. But it’s amazing to think that there’s someone out there for me that happens to do the things that I love/hate to do, slumbers a number of hours, eats my favorite dish, reads a good book, gets tired but perseveres, learns from past mistakes- More than that, I am just so thrilled to say that there will be a day that all the things we have been doing alone for quite some time will come to an end… and we’ll start doing things together this time. We’ll get awkward on our first date together, hang out with our friends together, watch movies together, buy concert tickets together and watch our favorite singers and bands, have deep conversation with about anything, go to church and worship God together, pray together, cry together, laugh together, dance and kid around whenever we want to, exchange each other’s iloveyous and iloveyouitmakesmecrazy. *kilig* hahaha. Yes, this feeling of warmth and sometimes chill, the feel of crazy butterflies in my stomach… I am more than excited to know that we will feel kilig all the days of our lives and until I’ll meet you at the altar and exchange not only our “I Love Yous” but our “I Dos.” I am just excited to have our own perfect ending.
Always know that I am earnestly and constantly praying for you. I am preserving my heart for you and how lovely it is to think that you would also wait and pray for me. Wait ‘til the right time comes. At this moment, let’s just make God our partner for life before and after we find each other. Let’s wait patiently, pray fervently and start preparing ourselves to be the “right one” for each other. Let us enjoy our season of singleness because when I’ll meet you for the first time and say our first “Hi” and “Hello”, it will then be a meaningful start of our amazing journey together and I’m sure you’re going to love it. You’ll be the happiest man on earth just like the happiest woman that I will be.
To my dearest future partner, there are 6 billion people out there who could have my heart right now but I choose to wait if waiting means having our happy ending together with you and my God above.
Your future partner,
