An open letter to my wife who thinks she's not sexy

You could wear baggy clothes and weigh whatever, but I'll still find you the sexiest woman alive. I hope you start seeing what I see, too.

My love,

When we were at the mall today, I could tell you were upset. I thought it was something I said or did, but noticing how your gaze would linger each time we’d pass a mirror, I knew why.

I understand your frustration when the dress you wanted didn’t look the way you wanted it to. I want you to know that you would look hot in any outfit; I’m not just saying this.

You could wear baggy clothes and weigh whatever, but I’ll still find you the sexiest woman alive. I hope you start seeing what I see, too.

How sexiness is portrayed in magazines and commercials isn’t exactly what I find sexy. I know I speak for many men when I say that a woman’s sexiness does not lie in the weight she loses or gains, or the skimpy outfits, it’s something she exudes–her essence, her vibrance, her wit, her unassuming charm. And babe, you have all that!

Your sexiness goes beyond a number on a scale. In fact, your sexiest attributes can’t be measured. Your confidence, strength, and humor are all so attractive. I love those little dimples on the apples of your cheeks; I love the way your hair smells after a quick jog. I love how your cheeks redden after one shot of tequila.

There is a spot on the side of your hip that I love tracing circles on. You know, the little space you call the ‘sleepy spot’? I like the way your neck glistens as you put your hair up on a hot day.

The way you laugh at my corny jokes and the way you bite your thumb when we watch a scary movie–all these things, though you don’t notice, make me want to kiss you. I want to spend my whole life kissing you and holding you. The most intimate moments, for me, are those we don’t even notice. The cuddling after our passionate love making is just as sexy as the act itself. I want you to know that you are sexiest when you don’t even realize it.

Truly, my darling, you are sexier now than you were on our wedding day. I’m not just saying this. I will keep reminding you and showing you how much I think you are sexy and beautiful in more ways than I could ever write about.
