Dear girls, I don't care about your looks, don't care how messy your hair is, don't care if you have hairy legs, I sort of like romantic movies, I like seeing you wear baggy shirts and long pants all day long. I don't mind you being moody and sensitive. I just love the way you are. And you look perfect to me. Sincerely, Your dream guy :D hahaha if only..
Truth be told. My Grandma Mary wrote this advice to me on a postcard years ago after a bought of painful teenage heartbreak. I thought it seemed so pessimistic and sad at the time. Now, I see how freeing it is to let go of expectation. She was wise, indeed, my Gram.
