An open letter to my beautiful wife's many admirers
Hey, you don't have to tell me my wife's beautiful, I knew that from the moment that I first saw her.
I don't mean to brag, but my wife is beautiful. Now, I'm not saying that because she's my wife, but it's because she's actually gorgeous. I don't know what sort of sorcery happened and she managed to end up with an average-looking guy like me, but hey, I'm not complaining!
It made me anxious
Now, you might be wondering, "Hey, aren't you worried that some ruggedly handsome man will try and steal your wife?" As a matter of fact, when me and my wife first started dating way back when, she would get a lot of messages from guys who were trying to flirt with her.
At first, I was annoyed, and then frustrated that those guys completely disregarded the fact that we were dating. I was even worried that she might leave me for someone who was smarter, better looking, or richer than me.
There was even one time while we were out on a date, and some guy actually went up to talk to her and was trying to flirt. She did the right thing by telling the guy that she had a boyfriend, and thankfully, the guy backed off. Still, it made me anxious.
"I chose you because I want to be with you"
Eventually, I learned to live with guys hitting on my then girlfriend, now my wife. Back then I felt offended that they were trying to steal or take her from me, I even felt insecure since it felt like she was too good for me, and that I wasn't someone who was worthy of her love.
But then she told me something that made me feel like she really was the person who I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. She told me, "You don't have to be jealous of those guys. I don't want to be with them. I chose you because I want to be with you, and I love you."
And her words hit me like a slap in the face. I was so worried that she would leave me that I completely disregarded the fact that throughout the years that we've been together, she never once cheated on me nor did she even try to flirt with another guy. It was just all in my head.
These days, I don't really mind it if someone walks up to my wife and talks to her, cause I know that she chose to be with me, and I'm very happy that she never once thought of leaving me for someone better.
So go ahead, you can try to talk to my wife, flirt with her even, I'm sure you'll just end up frustrated when she tells you that she's already happily married!
