Since today is Pepero Day (a.k.a. another couple day in Korea) let me come up with a mushy post. I got inspired by the article A Letter From The Love you Haven’t Met Yet and here’s my reply to the letter.
Dear Future Love of My Life:

I know you’re out there. Perhaps you’re just behind me while I get my caffeine fix or the person secretly laughing at my failed joke delivery to my friends. But I often wonder why we never had the chance to “really” meet.
While waiting for you, I went through some crazy experiences. I dated and fell in love—but not with you. I got hurt, cried till wee hours in the morning, and got addicted to Taylor Swift. Then again, looking back, it did help me learn and be a stronger and better individual. I realized my shortcomings and I was able to work on it. I got rid of the whole everything-is-Disney-perfect-once-you-fall-in-love as I realized that relationships are not always all musical with birds chirping with other forest animals helping you clean your cottage while you sing and twirl.
But at the same time, I am still not giving up on our fairy tale. I know it does not mean all happiness as that would be creepy for us to be just laughing, dancing and singing all the time. I also know that relationships entail hard work for it to stay strong and grow. But I’m sure it’ll be worth my time, especially if it’s with you for I am confident that this time around, I won’t be alone in making it work.

There are so many things I’d like us to do. Just thinking about our first this and that makes me smile like a fool. I can’t wait for us to go on adventures, may it be discovering new places, dishes, or activities. But the thing I am most excited about is for us to learn about each other. Our quirks, favorites… what makes us… us.
However, I understand that now is not yet the time. We are not ready to be together just yet as we are still working on our 2.0 versions. We may be preoccupied by our blooming careers or having a bit too much fun with our friends. Perhaps we still want to do a lot of things on our own.
But don’t worry, love. I’m just here and I’ll patiently wait for you.
Your Future Love Who Patiently Waits For You
