I don’t know your name yet, but I hope we find each other soon.
I don’t want to spend another Christmas alone.
I know Christmas is a time for family, but the truth is that all the family and all the friends in all the world can’t stop me from feeling the loneliness I feel.
Some days it is slight; other days it is silent. Some days it is stupendously heavy. And the thing is, I have so much love to give. I believe I am a kind, compassionate and loyal person who would do pretty much anything for anyone. I don’t expect anything like that in return; I just wish someone loved me for me.
Whoever you are, please know that we would have the most wonderful Christmas together.
I would make both my bedroom and yours traditional Santa’s grottos, so wherever we were, we would always feel the magic of the season. (Mistletoe above the door is entirely your decision.) I would always have a playlist of old Christmas songs at the ready – you know; the ones that transport you to a fireplace like the image on an old postcard. Chocolate shaped like reindeers, elves, penguins and polar bears would be in abundance. We could spend Christmas Eve in bed watching all your favourite Christmas films. (Well, not all of them; we need to save some for Christmas Day!) What’s yours? My family love The Holiday and Love Actually. I like Jingle All the Way, all the Toy Stories, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Elf, of course. And Home Alone. Definitely Home Alone. I’ll try and hide my tears when Kevin hugs his Mum at the end.
What I’d like most of all is to snuggle up and kiss and say “I love you” to one another. I have so many kisses to give you.
I can promise you right now that from the moment I take your hand in mine on the walk to wherever we might be going, to the last smile you see on my face before we turn out the light, wrap up in one another and fall asleep; you will always know how much I love you.
I can’t wait to meet you.
