Letter to My Next Boyfriend

Dear New Boyfriend,

Among all of the things, for which I am grateful to you, I’d first like to thank you for, consistently, placing the toilet seat back to its proper position; down. Thank you for turning off the light, as you leave a room and thank you for not leaving the cupboard, closet, refrigerator, sliding glass or front door open. These are just a few ways you show that you are not a child, but a man.

And when I say man, I mean to say one who understands the necessity of communication, respect, the rejection of name calling, and who listens to my words and opinions. Thank you for accepting and delivering these notions of nobility, with a backbone; no one likes someone who they can push around. In addition, thank you for understanding that I am a woman of strength, love, emotions and the need to shop.

Thank you for not ridiculing me, for the growing number of shoes I possess, as your appearance is just as important to you. I do thank you for bathing, brushing your teeth and working out, regularly, as well as coordinating your clothes and dressing in stylish attire. An outfit should complement an occasion or event.

I am grateful to you, for your ability to recognize that there is a time and place for shots, beers, loud music and laughter (your wit never ceases to amaze me). And I am, equally, grateful that you know when it is time to be responsible, work and sleep. Thank you allowing time for me to study and write, in peace.

As much as I do enjoy your company, thank you for understanding that I do need my solitude and/or time with my friends. When you are not near me, rest assured that I am, either, thinking of you or talking about you. And thank you for doing the same. This must be why we never question each other’s loyalty.

Thank you for being the first to change your status to “In a relationship”, and posting as many photos of us, as I have. The word “commitment”, surely, doesn’t frighten you.

And thank you for remembering my birthday, without Facebook’s help. It, also, does impress me that you are never late and you call when you say you are going to call. Calendars and clocks do not out smart you, for which I am grateful.

As for calendar dates, please do note that while I do believe Valentine’s Day is 100% a Hallmark holiday, I do expect any or all – a gift, flowers, dinner out or prepared for me. Thank you for this.

And thank you for the flowers, not because it’s a special occasion or an apology for something, but just because. It’s tokens of appreciation, like these, that I hold close to my heart.

You wonderful, respectful, thoughtful, clever man; I thank you.

Sincerely and with (dare I say?) love,

Julie
