Letter(s) from Melissa Harrington to Steve (USA)

Letter 1


I am Florence single never married and no kids,I m 32 years of age and 5.6 tall and have a blond hair and brown eyes ,fair in color,I grew up here in Ghana in our family am the first child of my parent and have a younger brother too....My father was a businessman, and my mother sells food stuffs..

I went primarily to parochial (Catholic) schools in the elementary years; then to a very good college preparatory school (Valley-View School) in the high school years..

My parents both worked hard to give me a future here in Ghana, Accra, so they wanted something a little better for me. After high school l went on to University of Ghana,cape coast.

I just graduated from the university with a bachelors degree in Graphic design but at this moment the are not much job opportunities so i help my mom to sell fruits and vegetables at the market at the market.

I enjoy fine dining, concerts (mainly jazz), art galleries, sporting events (especially college football and basketball), and, unlike most men, shopping! l can certainly read a good novel or magazine..

I can only say that l have all of my teeth, they are pretty straight, and no man has ever run in the other direction after seeing me for the first time! :) LOL I seek an attractive man between 30 and 65 (although I can go a little younger or older), who is kind, giving, caring, and loving, just as l am.

Physical handsome is somewhat important, but the inner qualities are of utmost importance...There are many very handsome men in the world who are very selfish and self-centered, and the same can be said of many attractive women..

Once l am in a relationship and committed to it, l will try do almost anything for that person, even if it may mean risking my own life. .Many people often use the word love too loosely, without really understanding what it means to love someone unconditionally.....That is the only way that l know how to love.

Some people want to say they love an individual, then when a crisis or some sort of adversity arises, they flee, and are nowhere to be found...lf l decide that l love a man, then I'm going to be there for him, regardless of what happens.

I would like to have that same level of commitment from the man l eventually become involved. In the past, for whatever reason, it seems that primarily Caucasian, and some Hispanic men have been attracted to me.

As a result, l also began to develop this preference for them over African-American men, although l have dated some mixed race (black and white), man as well....again, the primary factors are the inner qualities, and the same level of commitment that l am willing to give.

There are no perfect human beings in this world, and we all have done things that we need to be forgiven for.... l will always be willing to forgive,forget, and proceed in a relationship with the love that l have for that person.

I don't hold grudges indefinitely or continue to bring up things from the past if we should have any kind of disagreement.....lf you have shown your love and respect for me 99% of the time in the relationship, l'm not going to let one or two things which may occur during the course of the relationship (which they ultimately do in all relationships) cause me to want to end the relationship altogether...

Part of loving someone is being able to accept a sincere apology, and to look at the totality of the relationship, not just one or two isolated incidents..

I do not look for perfection in a man because we are all human; and I would not expect a man to look for perfection in me...lt is always best to talk disagreements out calmly and rationally without either partner losing their temper.

When tempers are lost too many hurtful and damaging things are said.....l will also never take for granted or under-appreciate a man that l love, and l believe in showing my love and affection on a daily basis.....

At the same time l would look to be fully appreciated as well.
l know that everyone has good days and bad days, but when you come home to the one you love, you should relay those feelings to her, and she should always be willing to listen; but don't bring the aggravation of your day down on your mate by yelling or arguing.

she should also never do this to you, and as a woman I will never do this to any man that l love,I would like to know more about you and send me some pictures of you
