Love Letters

Dear Kelly, I am writing to you publicly, to tell you how sorry I am for the recent loss of your boyfriend, Senzo Meyiwa, and the excessive attack you received via social media from people who disapproved of your role as a nyatsi (the other woman). You don’t deserve all those harsh words, my dear. You are very talented, lovely, beautiful and sometimes, God-loving young woman. I would also like to apologise for the way men have used you over the years. I know you desire to get married, but as it is, you are still single. The result of some men’s dishonestly in your relationship with them is evident in your status as a single mother of two lovely kids; one with a father in prison and the other with a late father. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. You don’t deserve all this from...

I'm bothered and a bit hurt seeing those posts that your other friends tagged you, because the photos and posts that I tagged you were nowhere to be found. It might be technical but why can't I see even just one. It also hurts to be "seenzoned" and "inboxzoned". Yes I know you are busy living your life, but we made a promise that however busy we are we wouldn't forget about communication. With those messages I sent you didn't even say hi, you just left it unopened. Yes, the thought of seeing you after a long time excites me, but when that time comes excitement was overpowered by awkwardness. It seem there's an invisible wall between us. Despite our differences I'm still hoping that we could patch things up and update the stuff that stand still... For now I'm not sure what...

Dear Future Husband, Well, if I marry you there is obviously something I saw in you but are you the way I will always imagine a guy? My perfect husband (so darling listen up XD) will have my sense of humor. He will also know when I'm being sarcastic and when I'm not. This guy will be dominate but not rudely. He'll know I'm shy and not very comfortable around people I'm not extremely close too (meaning he won't pressure me into meeting his colleagues at maybe a dinner party). He'll be a bit old fashioned by open and holding the door for me upon entry and exit. He'd always open the car door for me and close it after I get in. He's hold out my coat for me to put it on. But honey, I'd never take it for granted. To many people nowadays would but if I had that, I'd do my best to be that...

Dear Women: We hope this letter finds you held securely by the arms of true Love. Love is a beautiful thing. Yet, we hope you realize how difficult it was for the man in your life to fall in Love with you and quite possibly, how difficult it is for him to be in Love with you. Love is difficult for us men. Why? Well, to be honest, Love scares us. We confess it here and now, we men are afraid of Love. We are especially afraid that we will leap into the abyss of Love first but you will never join us. That we will fall blindly into Love and you will not be there to catch us, to guide us. Most importantly, we fear giving up control. We fear losing ourselves in an emotion we do not fully understand. An emotion that controls us rather than us controlling it. No man wants to feel like he is...

Hey, I was wondering when will we ever meet? I mean, its too early to ask for things like that bc im just 14. You know, maybe weve passed by each other once and we just havent had a connection that time. If one day our love story begins i would want to spend it with you every single part of it.

Dear Yvonne Craig, Yesterday morning I woke up to a very dank and dark day. The rain was pouring in and as I looked out the window I couldn’t muster up any motivation except to haul myself out to the living room and find something rather light and harmless to watch on the television. I was rather amused to find that one of your old films, “Ski Party”, was on television. Now I have to admit that I have a real soft spot for the sixties teen comedies of Frankie Avalon so “Ski Party” was just the remedy that the doctor ordered for a dreary morning. Now “Ski Party” is no “Battleship Potemkin”. Hell, it’s not even “Beach Blanket Bingo” for that matter, but for that hour and a half that I sat watching it I felt it was the best thing in the world. However,as I watched the cross-dressing antics...

I was scared to fall for you deeply. I was unsure whether things will last with the great "happy ever after." I guarded my feelings because I didn't want to get hurt. I've seen the worst heartbreak when my parents separated and it caused and pained me to be like this. To keep myself in the safe zone. To be afraid of being left alone by my loved one. To be the heartbreaker and not the broken hearted. And to be aware of the ugly possibility that you can be the happiest in the morning but as soon as the evening sets in, you'll see yourself turning out to be the saddest. That's why I always prepare myself for the worst, ranging from hideous nightmares from the past to anxieties of the future. Knowing that there is always a brighter side, I've learned to leave a small room for hope.. Hope...

Dear future husband, Hey. How are you? I just wanted to write to you to tell you that I am waiting for you. I’m waiting for you because I already love you. I’m waiting for you now and I will continue waiting for you until the day that God chooses to cross our paths. I know that life can be hard and you might be tempted to despair or settle for relationships or situations that will not bring you true happiness or joy. But through all of this I just want you to know that I am also praying for you. Even though we may not have met yet, you are not alone in this. I know how you feel. I know how easy it seems to just hook up with someone or use someone to fill in the loneliness that you feel in your heart. I know how tough it can be to say no to impurity. Just know that every time I...

Dear Soulmate, I don’t know who you are. I don’t know how you look like. I don’t even know where you are. Or do I already know you? Or am I still going to meet you? No, nothing I know about you. Yet I already miss you. I am longing for you. I do always think of you. I know that my heart beats for you. I know that we are meant for each other. Sometimes I am getting worried about you. How many heartaches have you been through? Or have u just broken your heart thinking you had finally found me? Have she left you with so much pain? Have she left you after giving all your love and care to her? Do you feel so betrayed, sad, frustrated and depressed? Do you feel like your life has lost its meaning? Do you feel like giving up? Do you feel so alone? how many days have u locked up yourself in...

I'm writing this letter to help shed some light on relationships and what is regular behaviour in them. I recently met up with several guy friends and we began discussing why one or two of them hadn't managed to find a girlfriend and it ended in my conclusion that they had unrealistic expectations of relationships and women. Just like many men will try to ignore the fact that women poop, so will they believe that there is this perfect woman out there who is everything that they're looking for and why should they settle for less? "But who is perfect?" I would tell them and "if you're not perfect is it fair to expect them to be?". We began to discuss the areas of relationships that they did and didn't like and I found they had quite clear misconceptions of what was good or bad. To...
