The Girl He Wants To Marry

I’ve been meaning to blog over the weekend, but wow, I just had to take a break even for just a few days because a lot of things happened in a just a day. Let’s just say that rocks that have long been gathering moss were unturned and the information is overwhelming that I am left with no words.

But since I don’t want to spread bad vibes on this blog, let’s not talk about what I just found out. Instead, let me share a very nakakakilig thing I heard over the weekend. Gather around my chair, dear readers, and let me sprinkle you with happy dust! ūüėÄ

I always take it a joke every time¬†Arjay¬†tells me that he has known I’m The One ever since we started dating. First, how would you know that a person is The One if you’re just beginning to know her? And second, after all the heartbreaks he put me through (hehehe), how could I have been The One?! Syempre ang pangontra ni Arjay¬†dyan eh ako naman daw ang pinakasalan in the end.¬†Whatevs.

ANYWAY. His friends came over our house yesterday for a barbecue. I swear, I love hosting these small gatherings! It’s just so nice to be with good company over delicious food. ūüôā While the guys were having drinks and I was munching on the delicious grilled fish and ribs, Arjay’s closest friend started reminiscing¬†about the first time Arjay¬†introduced me to him.

I really cannot remember the first time we met, but he clearly remembers because he said it’s very memorable for him. He said they picked me up from Fitness First after my workout session then we had dinner together.¬†After I left, Arjay¬†told him that I’m the girl “to die for” daw, that I’m the one he’ll marry someday. As usual, I took it as a joke. To die for ba naman ang term eh! But this friend of his wasn’t joking. He said that of all of Arjay’s¬†girlfriends, I am the only one that Arjay¬†sounded so sure about. No games, ika nga.

His¬†friend even expressed that he is a huge fan of our love story that he will definitely share our story to his future wife, his children and his children’s children! LOL.¬†I was going to make a joke about it again, but I remembered that this close friend is not the only one who said the same thing.

When we were preparing for our Church wedding, our pastor’s wife told me that when Arjay¬†was courting me, he told her that I’m the girl he wants to marry. Then she handed me a letter that Arjay¬†wrote six years ago for the girl he will marry. She said he wrote that with me in mind.

Circa 2010 – Before I left the Philippines. A very memorable photo.

All these things made me feel guilty because I’ve always joked about him genuinely loving me. Come to think of it, I always think about the heartbreaking¬†things we went through¬†and not our happy memories together that obviously outweigh the sad moments.¬†It’s not like me to dwell on the negative so I really need to shrug all those nega vibes off my life. Besides life is too good to be miserable!

As for being the girl he wants to marry, it really is an honor to be labeled as such. We’ve been asked by so many people about how we found out that we wanted to be with each other for the rest of our lives. I asked him and he just said “because you are you.”

If you ask me how I knew I wanted to be with him, I’d say that it just felt right — even after all the hardships and heartbreaks. Everything just fell into place and before we knew it, we were already saying “I Do.” ūüôā
