At 27 and still single, some would ask “why?”, as if I wanted to be alone. Nobody wants to be alone and neither I.
However, having our paths crossed at this very moment may not be a good idea as well. I was too broken not to want to get involved yet. Maybe, I am scared to risk all chances of finding someone, fall in love and become happy, but eventually lose it again.
I’m taking my time to heal the wounds that I had so if I finally meet you, I am a mess no more. I want to be whole again first and be a better version of who I was.
I want to learn how to love myself again so I could love you more. I want to learn how to stand on my own so you could also lean on me.
But, please note I want to see there at our crossroad in the future. I want to know you and unveil life with you. I wonder how we would be like when we get older, you bald and I wrinkled. I’m watching at our future.
I am thinking if we can have 2 kids or three, and every Sunday I will cook for our family day. Isn’t it exciting?
But Man, for now, take your time exploring and experimenting the things around you. Don’t worry, I am in no hurry.
Take your time hanging out with your boys, getting drunk and be careless and a mess. I have little tolerance for that. I hope, eventually, you will get tired doing that often.
Take your time meeting and dating countless girls, so if I have you then you will no longer look at someone else. I don’t think I can take any more of that.
Take your time growing and learning from experiences and failures because they will teach you lessons no one can ever teach you.
Take your time becoming a better man. Pursue your dreams and be successful. I wish I could be there now to see your trials and struggles and support and cheer you, but if we will only fight over and over again because of our unfinished immaturity, I’d rather wait to see you in the future when we are both ready.
I believe God is molding both of us to become no less than a person he wants us to be. Everything will happen in his perfect time and everything we went through and is going through will prepare us for our future.
So for now, to my future man, take your time for I am in no hurry too. I know you’re busy and I can wait.
However, see you in the future, when we’re both ready and whole.
