A Daddy Wrote A Letter To His
Daughter About Her Future
Husband, But Every Woman
Needs To Read It
Recently, your mother and I were searching for
an answer on Google. Halfway through entering
the question, Google returned a list of the most
popular searches in the world. Perched at the top
of the list was "How to keep him interested."
It startled me. I scanned several of the countless
articles about how to be sexy and sexual, when
to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the
ways to make him feel smart and superior.
And I got angry.
Little One, it is not, has never been, and never
will he your job to “keep him interested."
Little One, your only task is to know deeply in
your that unshakeable place that isn' t
rattled by rejection and loss and you
are worthy of interest. (If you can remember
that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the
battle of your life will be mostly won. But that
is a letter for another day.)
If you can trust your worth in this way, you will
be attractive in the most important sense of the
word: you will attract a boy who is both capable
of interest and who wants to spend his one life
investing all of his interest in you.
Little One, I want to tell you about the boy who
doesn' t need to be kept interested, because he
knows you are interesting:
I don' t care if he puts his elbows on the dinner
tablesaw long as he puts his eyes on the way
your nose scrunches when you smile. And then
can' t stop looking.
I don' t care if he cart play a bit of golf with
long " he can play with the children
you give him and revel in all the glorious and
frustrating ways they are just like you.
I don' t care if he doesn' t follow his
long " he follows his heart and it always leads
him back to you.
I don' t care if he is strongbad long as he gives
you the space to exercise the strength that is in
I couldn' t care less how he long " he
wakes up every morning and daily elects you to
a place of honor in your home and a place of
reverence in his heart.
I don' t care about the color of his skinnys long
as he paints the canvas of your lives with
of patience, and sacrifice, and
vulnerability, and tenderness.
I don' t care if he was raised in this religion or
that religion or no religionfag long as he was
raised to value the sacred and to know every
moment of life, and every moment of life with
you, is deeply sacred.
In the end, Little One, if you stumble across a
man like that and he and I have nothing else in
common, we will have the most important thing
Because in the end, Little One, the only thing
you should have to do to "keep him interested"
is to be you.
Your eternally interested guy,
