Letters to Luthien

Letters to My Future Bride

21 More Things About Me

1. I’m strongly oriented around family.

2. I need people more than I care to admit.

3. I love music. If I’d had the talent to be a concert pianist or singer/song writer, I just might have.

4. I feel like life’s already too short. If I could live a few centuries, I would keep going back to school for more careers, skills and knowledge, and exhaust this planet’s learning opportunities, languages, travel and experiences.

5. Most people tell me I am an amazing influence for good in their lives. I wonder when someone’s gonna do that for me. I seriously don’t run into someone like that often, who just positively energizes me and reminds me of what’s right.

6. I fit many notions about the male archetype…but I also defy a lot of them. For example, I’d like nothing better than to sit and talk with you about how you feel. And I don’t much care for sports.

7. I like to drive with the windows down.

8. I somehow manage to lead a very busy life, and I think I like it that way.

9. I’m competitive, but mostly against myself.

10. Ear worms of all kinds tend to stick in my head, from Katy Perry and Carly Rae Jepsen to Miley Cyrus, P!nk and Lady GaGa.

11. Self-deprecating humor is my natural compensating mechanism for arrogance.

12. I have a powerful and sensitive sex drive. Like, so sensitive that I actively avoid the lingerie sections of department stores. I wonder how satiable it will be once we’re married, and I hope you have an appetite to match.

13. I hate being scared. Not scared as in, will this storm get worse, but scared as in, someone popped a plastic bag in the store and jarred me. With my self-imposed mindset of preparedness, I get enough adrenaline wondering if I need to save a life or take one. My instincts and fight/flight response gear up and I don’t like that unless I need them.

14. I compartmentalize like a boss. I can be professionally invasive and hands-on with a woman’s vagina in the medical setting, yet object to the callous use of the word itself outside of the clinical setting.

15. I’m a little messy. My bed isn’t always made in the morning, and the bedroom isn’t always sparkling clean. But the important thing is, I’m not satisfied or content with a messy room or house, even if I have to let it stay that way while I work on the rest of life.

16. I’m nostalgic. You can expect me to remember important dates.

17. I read my own letters, quite often. They give me hope.

18. I have guns. What knight wouldn’t have weapons? You don’t mind, do you?

19. I pick at the hairs on my back all the time. They annoy me.

20. I like hats. Like, old-fashioned 1940’s fedoras. Don’t you?

21. I’ve been praying for you since I was 11. You knew that already, didn’t you? Well there you go. More than 15 years of prayer devoted just to your well-being and finding you.
