Author Note: I saw another version of this in 'Chicken Soup' and decided to do my own. So basically this is a letter to my true love, wherever he is. Well, here it goes.


Dear Boy,

I have no idea what you look like, and I highly doubt you're out there. But if you are, please find me. I've been searching for you for the longest time. So please, look for me. I'm starting to lose hope. My dear love, please find me. I know you will. I believe in you.

And if we ever do meet, please don't turn and run because I don't look like a Victoria Secret model. Please don't turn and leave because I'm nothing like you expected. Please stick by me. Give me a chance, because deep inside, I need you. However, if you do like how I look, I hope you don't base our relationship on that. Please don't love me just so you could get in my pants and add me to this list of one-night stands then leave me. I hope you don't do that. I'm already broken inside. And I hope that when we meet, you'll say, "I want you beacuse I love you." and not "I love you because I want you."

If you're not that type of guy, Thank God! All I hope for is that you'll love me for me. Simple as that. I don't want you to shower me in affection or smother me with gifts. You don't have to take me out to an expensive restaurant or be embarrassed if I have more money than you. You don't have to call me every hour on the hour or harass my phone with your text messages. And you don't have to worry about me cheating on you, because I'd never do that. Oh, and you don't have to treat me like a queen. Even if you didn't, I'd still love you. And remember: what's most important is that we're together.

But please take note that even though I don't show it, I love fairy tale romance. So don't laugh if I cry while watching Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. I just want you to hold me and remind me you're here. I hope you remember I love blue and despise pink. And also, that I hate sports, but I'd still go to your games to show my support. I won't expect you to, but it would be nice if you remembered my birthday. Or our anniversary if that's not pushing it.

It may be a big issue for others, but I wouldn't mind if you forgot my favorite things once in a while. But even with that, I want you to remember my favorite color is blue, not pink. I like emo gear, not frilly blouses. I love steak and don't believe in diets. I want you to remember that I mostly love rock and gothic, but I'm open to other types of music. I love ice cream. And I hope you don't mind, but I absolutely despise blouses. So please bear with me and my love for T-shirts and jeans. That's just how I am.

Oh, and you don't have to worry about the friend thing. I don't expect you to act all mushy and sensitive in front of your friends. I know most guys don't do that, so I don't expect you too. But if you're willing to hold my hand, I'd appreciate it. Again, I don't want you to gush about me like some obsessed stalker-freak, but some affection now and then in public would be nice.

If you ever want to break up, please don't use the "We can still be friends," line on me. Because I know that for a few days, I won't be able to face you. Even so, I really do want to be your friend. So please wait for me to adjust to the situation. Even though it won't seem like it, I still love you. I'll always love you, no matter what. It's just a different kind of love I guess.

So please, come find me Mr. True Love. I'm waiting for you. But please hurry. These shackles are tightening and my vision's blurring. Please Love, find me before the darkness does. I'm forever waiting. But I trust you with my heart, and I believe you'll find me. That's right, I believe in the whole 'love overcomes anything' phrase. Please Love, find me before the darkness. I've been alone for so long, I need you. Oh, and before I end this letter, I love you. I love you with all me heart. And with that, I bid you good bye love. Until the time we meet...

With All My Love,

Your Lady in Waiting
