My boyfriend and I have been together for three years. It’s been a roller coaster of ups, downs, and everything in between. This last year, he left to go study abroad in England, at this awesome school for his master’s. If you ask him why he went, he’ll state that it is for our future, our family, that’s how great he is. I stayed behind and tried to figure out my own life. I have gone through a lot of phases, trying to figure out what I want to do next, and the only thing I am sure of, is him.
Our love is what people sing songs about, or at least, I think so. I look at him, and I just can’t wait to see him go grey, or get wrinkles, get older. I can’t wait to be there every step of the way. The great thing is, I know he feels the same.
So, you are thinking, okay, good for you, what are you saying? I want your help.
He comes back soon, and it’ll be around the time of his birthday. I bought us matching rings, silver bands with brass plates that have the longitude and latitude of Philadelphia, the place where we met. I want to ask him to marry me, formally, when he gets back. Sure, we might not be legally recognized by whatever law, but our love is greater than that, and the symbolism of wanting to grow old together through thick and thin, sickness and health, that is all there. He’s been abroad, and I’ve been here. I want him to know no matter where I am, I will love him.
It would be AWESOME if you all could help me. Send me postcards from various locations, simple pieces of blank paper, or artistic masterpieces saying simply, “Will you marry me?” I’d love to have a massive amount of letters and postcards from all over when he returns, just asking one simple phrase that will forever change our lives. This way, it seems that no matter where we are, (or you, the sender) the question is the same.
The pieces are all there, and I am asking for the kindness of strangers to help me fulfill this simple proposal plan. I want him to know how much I love him, and hope that this story can inspire you to help me carry it off.
Thanks for your time.
