All About Jane

Letters to My Daughter: Letter 1 – All About Jane



Dear Daughter,

I hope this letter finds you well. It’s been a while since we last spoke, and for that, I’m sorry. I’m reaching out to you not only to share a piece of my world but also to weave tales that might otherwise go untold. If time permits and this website endures, I would be honored if you took a moment to read.

Let me take you on a journey inspired by the legendary TV show “How I Met Your Mother,” albeit with a twist. Names may change to safeguard privacy, but the essence of these stories remains unchanged. This one’s for you, my beautiful daughter, and for your mother, the love of my life.

Letter 1: All About Jane

As I reminisce about the romantic escapades of my parents, my father’s love life seems like a tangled web, while my mother’s affection was pure and steadfast. Let me introduce you to Jane.

Back in high school, I first crossed paths with Jane when I was a mere 12 years old, and she, a year older. Her beauty was unparalleled, her smile a beacon of light in a dreary world. Our first encounter was on the second floor of our school, amidst the pitter-patter of rain. Clad in a jacket, she captivated me with her radiance. Little did she know, I was smitten from that moment onward, envisioning a future with her.

It was my first brush with unrequited love, or what some may call puppy love. Unsure if she reciprocated my feelings, I embarked on a quest to impress her. Jane’s interests became mine; her love for Dragon Ball and admiration for the character Trunks led me down the path of anime obsession. I delved into the intricate plotlines, consumed by the desire to understand her passions.

Moreover, her musical talents enchanted me. A maestro on the piano and skilled with the recorder, she inspired me to hone my own skills. But perhaps what struck me the most was her proficiency with computers, a rarity in those days. Her mastery of technology fueled my own aspirations, shaping my academic pursuits.

Despite my heartfelt confessions, Jane remained elusive. Though your mother holds the key to my heart, Jane occupies a cherished corner, a reminder of youthful innocence and unfulfilled dreams.

So why this letter, you ask? It’s a gentle reminder that love, in all its forms, is a journey worth savoring. Embrace it, revel in it, for as your grandmother often said, everyone deserves happiness. Love deeply, live fully, and cherish those who reciprocate your affection.

Until next time,

Your adoring father
