This has got to be either the most romantic gesture I’ve ever seen from a man in love ... or the cheesiest.
Apparently, Jessa Duggar’s boyfriend Ben Seewald is showing men out there how modern courtship is done with his latest move. The only problem is that I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be impressed with it or cringe with embarrassment.
Jessa posted a photo of a handwritten letter Ben gave her along with a pearl bracelet she received as a gift. I mean, it’s all beautiful and everything, but the letter down to the handwriting and the paper it was written on looks like it was sent by an 11-year-old girl who is borderline obsessed with Justin Bieber and One Direction. He wrote:
These elegant pearls looked quite majestic when I picked them out. However, they were a bit lonely ... what good are such beautiful pearls if not to have the grace of being worn by one so elegant and majestic as yourself? These pearls were lonely ... just like I am when we’re apart; but not anymore. I love you my precious princess!
While the letter is quite romantic as is the gift, I don’t know what I would do with it if my husband gave me something similar. Who knows, maybe I’m jealous. But then again, I don't know any woman in my inner circle of friends who wouldn't give her man a questionable side-eye after getting a letter like this. I mean, the only thing that's missing is a few Lisa Frank stickers and highlighted hearts in pink.

Still, this just goes to show that Jessa and Ben are definitely serious about their relationship, despite how cheesy it might appear to some of us. Of course now everyone is going to be asking the big question: When are these two getting engaged already? Jessa’s sister Jill, who got married to Derick Dillard earlier this summer, is going to pop out 19 kids of her own before these two make it official. Hey Ben, how about a RING to match that bracelet? Just sayin'.
What do you think of Ben’s romantic letter and gift to Jessa?
