An Open Letter to My Future Boyfriend

By: Sohaila El Nahas

Dear Future Boyfriend,


I have experienced my share of immature first loves and the painful heartbreaks that follow. When I look back now, I feel that I have grown up. I know my priorities in life. I know myself and I am deeply, madly and passionately in love with myself.


At the moment, I don’t need a boyfriend. I don’t have time. I don’t want to flaunt among my friends because I already have an awesome life. But one day in my future, I will need someone. Someone who can complete and complement me. Someone who trusts me. Someone who understands me. Someone who is as strong as the wind to fight for me. Someone who is as soft as the breeze to calm me. Someone who is just there beside me, with unspoken words, with the unsaid promise to have the best talks in silence. Someone who shares my grievances. And maybe you’ll be the one who stays. Maybe this time I will put my all into it.


I want someone who can forgive me for every fight. Someone who needs me in his life. Someone who can make me run on that road which never ends, which is built out of trust and patience, which has only love and longing to be the best for the best. I want someone who is daring enough to steal the princess from her own self. Someone who looks beyond the figure and physical appearances and sees my true inner core. Someone who looks me in the eyes and connects with my soul. Someone who allows me to be stupid and childish. Someone to do ridiculous things with me without even questioning it. Someone who connects with my best guy friends and feels welcomed. Someone who strengthens me daily before I go to work. Someone who is my friend to support and understand me with my ways. Someone with whom I am free to be my own self.


I know if he exists, I will meet him at the perfect time and in the perfect way. And I will change into my true self through him and for him. I will be changed. But what I love most is the irony that he won’t care if I change or stay the same because he will love me no matter what. I am happy with my life and with each passing day, I am learning new ways to love myself. I am enjoying being single because it allows me to dream of you while pursuing my own dreams.


P.S: Please hurry up, I’m waiting already.
