Letters to my former single self part deux.

Linking up with Lisette  
again for part 2 of the "Letters to my former single self".

This weeks question is
"What did you think about dating and marriage the year before you met "the one?"

Dear Jessica,
The year prior to meeting "the one", you had an engagement ring on your finger and thought that you were with "the one". Secretly, deep down inside, you knew this just didn't feel quite right. Something was missing. It was platonic and you were only getting married because it was the next step.  
 So after making the biggest decision of your life ,and called off the wedding, you serial dated.
You really didn't think much about marriage. You knew that it would happen but you just weren't sure when. You weren't one of those crazy girls that pictured her self marrying every guy that she dated (no offense, if that's your thing, then that's your thing). You actually enjoyed dating, only because it allowed you to have fun and be carefree. It allowed you to make friendships but not get too close to someone to hurt them. 
After 5 years of having the same booty call, your senses finally came to. 
He.Was."The One."  
You should have known this considering shortly after you met him, you paid for a back groundcheck for $39.95 just to make sure he checked out (now that's my kind of cray cray). 

Current Day 
I love my husband. Yes, he drives me bananas sometimes, but that's what marriage is about. I'm so proud of him for serving our country. He's extremely handy to have around and deep down believes chivalry is not dead, as much as he tries to convince himself that it is. 
Link up with Lisette and join the fun! 


  1. I think that's awesome! Your FWB turned into your husband - love it!!

  2. crazy that you were engaged before, but looks like things turned out the best in the end!

  3. You paid for a background check! That's my kind of cray cray, too!

  4. I was one of those "do I see myself marrying this guy?" type. Haha. I'm so proud of this post! Your right brain did a good job! Love you for trying!

  5. Haha I love that you paid for a background check!

  6. I love everything about this, especially the background check. My step-dad worked for the government so I did this shit on the reg.

    loooooove it:)

  7. Chivalry's on the couch with a beer but will get the trash eventually. Fantastic. That's my house for sure!

  8. I am still dating and I am convinced, chivalry is dead.

    I am new blogger, you should stop by sometime!

  9. So glad you figured out that the first one wasn't actually the one.

    That is too funny about the background check!

  10. I'm so glad you figured out that the first guy wasn't The One. I was in a similar situation (not engaged, but seriously dating) a year before I was with The One. It's wonderful to know we didn't make a dumb mistake! Also, I LOVE that you had a background check done. :-)

  11. Lol this post made me giggle! too funny! I think the wait is always worth it!

  12. I had a "promise" ring on my finger the year before I met my husband too! I thought I knew what love was, but not yet I didn't. I love that pin. Too funny ;)


Thank you so much for taking your time to leave a sweet comment. They make my day :)
