Letter(s) from Anna Shabunina to Dave (USA)

Letter 1

Hello,
How are you? I am sorry if I didn't respond to you at once but you see I have no computer at home and I have to go to the Internet cafe which is located not far from my home. I think that first of all I should say thank you that you responded back to me and I guess I need to explain to you at once that I live in Russia, in Totsk city. Totsk is a closed city and it is located in Orenburgskaya region.
It is a very nice and small city. I should say that I have never been to the USA but I think that USA is a good country with nice people and traditions. Actually in my profile it says that I am from the USA.
I hope you are not very sad about it. When I was putting my ad I guess I have done a few mistakes because this is my first experience in Internet datings. I want to be honest from the whole beginning and that is why I want you to know that I am from Russia.
I think I have to tell you more about me and my life here.
It is pretty cold here today, it is about 5 centigrades above zero and what about your place? Is it cold there?
I decided to put my profile on yahoo because I a very lonely here in Russia and I just couldn't find that specila man for me here.
I know that many Russian women also found their love somewhere in other coutries and in the USA so I am here now also trying to find my love. By the way one of my friend used to find her husband on yahoo personals also and now they live happily in Germany in a small city not far from Berlin .
And I also want to be happy with someone special for me, and who will love me. And age doesn't matter for me at all, the main thing is to be happy and find love. I told my friends that I am going to write you and they support me because we all wish each other only happiness.
I think you want to know about my family, well I have never seen my mother because she died borning me. I was brought up by my father who has gone this summer, he was a good Policeman and he was shot.
So I am alone now because I was the only child. As you see now nothing holds me now in this country anymore and I try to find my love.
You must be intersted in my likes and dislikes and etc. So here is some more information about me:
- I am a surgeon and I work in a city hospital ( I have a doctor diploma from the Medical Academy).
- I am a Christian
- I like white lilies
- My favourite color is blue
- My favourite music is classical
- I love pets and anymals
- I have no kids and I have never been married.
- I love cooking and my favourite food is Italian and Russian one. My best dish is lasagna.
- I have a driving license but I have no car
- I like to go to cinemas and theatres but I don't like disco because it is very noisy there and it is always overcrowded.
- I don't smoke and I drink socially ( for example a glass of red wine)
- I don't have tattoos or piercings exept for my ears.
- I don't like winters and it is very cold now in Russia.
I guess that is all for today and I hope you didn't get tired to read my email. Please write me more about yourself, your likes and dislikes...
Unfortunately I have to go home now since it is getting late here and I have a lot of work to do for today.
I very much hope that you will write me back today or tomorrow and I will try to reply to you at once...
Your friend from Russia,
Larisa

Hello my dear
How are you today?
I am very glad to see your email. And would like to see as many pictures of yours as possible, because its very interesting for me and I would like to get to know you better.
Your reply made my day. I am happy to read your emails. I see we have a lot of common and I like it very much. I think we are becoming more closer to each other. Ive chosen your profile because I like you very much, when I read your profile
I think you are very interesting person. And I have a feeling I was always looking for you.
Recently we celebrated Women's day in our country and I felt so sad because I had nobody to celebrate it with.
Anyway, I with my friends went to the cafe and had some fun. Everybody was kissing and hugging with their beloved.
All women got flowers...I hope that next time I will celebrate Women's day with my beloved who can be my one and forever.
Could it be you?
By the way I have something more to tell you about me. I didnt tell you that I like travelling. I have been in Moscow a few years ago with my friends.
Also I have been in St.Petersburg. It was wonderful to go sightseeing and very interesting. But unfortunatly I had no chance to visit any foreign country.
Some more information about me:
- I have blue eyes
- I am 5'6 height
- I am 55 kg weight ( unfortunately don't know how much it will be in your measurement system) - my sizes (93-63-92 )in cm.
I have already told you that I work as a surgeon in a city hospital.I do different operations. But I earn not much in our country. About $200 in your money per month. I do think it is a small salary but all doctors have low salary in Russia.
I was attending courses of English for two years already and I like this language, though I have never spoken in English with someone who is from English-speaking country.
Today is 13 digrees above zero( this is a teperature in Celcius), and tomorrow I am going to go outside with my friends for BBQ.
I t should be funny. By the way, do you like camp?
So strange, time flies so fast...I will be 36 years old soon.
My birthday is 13th of May.Can you belive it!!!.
But I should say that I don't want to spend it, because I always wanted to celebrate it with my life partner. That is my dream and I hope it will come true one day. You know, now I am very sad that you are so far away from me, cause we couldnt be together on my birthday .
I have one more dream, a dream to have a family, to take care about my housband. Its all I want in my life, i just want to be happy as a woman. And its doesnt matter in what kind of country my future husband is living.
I will be next to him, and I will find any job I can to help have a good style of life.
I guess that is enough for today and I would like to ask you a few questions:
- what are you going to do this weekend
- what did you do for fun
- what do you feel about such relationships as we can possibly have.
I will be waiting for your reply with great impatience.
I have to run for my work right now...
Goodbye for now
Yours,
Larisa
