If you had asked me five years ago if I thought I’d ever get married, I would have said no! But that was before I met Brian. Now I’m singing a different tune: I am, without a doubt, going to marry Brian, as long as he doesn’t break up with me.
What can I say? When you know, you know.
It may sound crazy, but I think Brian is The One unless he decides he isn’t. I’ve dated plenty of guys before, and there was always something wrong. Kevin was a jerk to his parents. Sean was a jerk to me. And Charlie? Well, Charlie was a jerk to horses. Can you say “red flag”?! But Brian is different! He’s sweet and respectful, funny and successful, and he’s great in bed (teehee!). I look at him and I see my future—a future in which we’re married and happy, unless that isn’t the future Brian wants, in which case, my vision is wrong.
Finding your soulmate is a beautiful thing.
It’s an incredible feeling to wake up every morning, look at the man next to me, and think, “This is perfect.” I’ve never been surer of anything in my life. For once, I know where I stand! I stand at the altar! Next to Brian! That’s assuming he asks me to stand at the altar with him and doesn’t at some point decide that “our lives are going in different directions”! Excuse me while I swoon!
I take a lot of inspiration from my parents, who have been married for 30 years. Sometimes I mention this to Brian, just to watch his facial expressions. I’m totally in love with you and want that to be us, his eyes say. But minds can change and people can change, his eyebrows add. I’ve already started looking at dresses!
Here. Comes. The. Bride. Maybe. Eeee!
At the end of the day, I’m all in and feel certain that Brian and I are destined to be together. I want him to make me the luckiest girl in the world, and I’m kind of syre he will! Or, if he decides he can’t do this anymore and he’s not really over his ex, I know he’ll make someone else the luckiest girl in the world down the line. The point is it’s impossible to imagine my life without him, unless I try.
Get ready, world: I am going to marry the love of my life if he lets me!
