Being The One.

In light of recent events in my life, I have decided to write to my future boyfriend/husband. Please DO NOT mistake this for one of those demanding, outrageous and nonsensical post/letters from those half witted, mentally unstable and unfathomably shallow girls like Njoki chege. 
This is to let you know the kind of person that I am now and where am at. Its up to you to figure out how and where you fit in.

Dear future Boyfriend/Husband,
My name is Wanjiru Kahugu. I am twenty something years old. I love to read. I love travelling as well. I’m a supporter of sports but I don’t actually play any game that includes board games too. I love movies! I really love movies. I love movies to the point I wanted to become a movie critic when I was younger. I love series as well. I have a very eclectic taste in music. I listen to almost everything.
I’m fascinated by nature and would love to go on safaris. But not the crazy type just a drive in a national park and watch animals drink from a water hole then go home. I’m not the camping in the woods sort of person. I don’t want to see wild animals up close and personal. I think they are quite spectacular from a safe distance too. I am terrified of hights but I appreciate views. I hate small creatures that move fast or jump like rats and frogs.
My ideal Sunday afternoon is reading a book outside and just chilling….maybe even watch the sunset in the evening, have good home cooked meal then watch a good movie.
I have a love hate relationship with cooking. I reject the idea that a woman’s place is in the kitchen, non the less, I am a good cook. When I’m in a cooking mood I do it well and whole heartedly. I even enjoy it. I bake too but only when I’m in the mood.
I am a very maternal person. I love to take care of the people around me and hence become protective of them but I know my place. I love my space. I don’t get a lot of me time because I’m quite busy but when I do, its strictly me time.

I am not the party type of person infact when I go out with friends I only dance when my song plays….I scarcely go out. I’m more of a stay at home, keep warm, read a book or watch a movie type of girl. The party life has never been my cup of tea. In fact I admire the energy the ‘go out every weekend’ type of girl has.
I love dogs…..I am definitely not a cat person.
Future boyfriend/husband, read keenly what I’m about to write next because its the most important part of this whole post/letter. I wear my heart on my sleeve, I love very easily but I get hurt as easily too. In fact I’m not done picking up the pieces of my shattered heart from the last guy who screwed me over…..it might take me a while to put all the pieces back together again so give me time.
I am a communicator, I like to talk about everything so I hope you are a communicator too. I feel its important for people to talk about what they want, expect and feel in order for them to be on the same page. When you start a relationship with different expectations of each other, it is bound to fail when the other person doesn’t meet your expectations of them.
I could go on and on about myself but that’s basically me. I am no longer going to focus on what and who you should be. I will continue to work on who I am so I can be a better girlfriend and a good wife to you some day. I’m working on being the one as opposed to looking for the one. I can’t wait to meet you…..or maybe I already have and I just don’t know it yet.
Which ever the case I hope you are also working on being a good boyfriend and husband to me one day.

All my love,
Your future girlfriend/wife,
Shiro.
