Letter 2

Hello my new friend Robert,
My name is Anastasiya. I am very glad to get acquainted with you. And I hope we can become good friends. I am glad, that you have attached your photo with the letter. I like your photo! Thanks! I want to tell you more about myself. I live in Russia in city Inza! I work as accountant. I like sport. I like various kinds of sport: swimming, aerobics, cycling and dancing. Also I like traveling with friends around my country. I like cooking very much: soup, vegetable salads, and many other things. I like flowers. I think that they make our life beautiful everywhere: at home, in the streets, at work. As for me I think there is no woman who doesn't like flowers at all. I like roses, lilies, and tulips. When there is a vase of flowers in the living room or on the bed-table it means that you will be elated all the day, have a desire to do the best for everybody. I'm fond of dancing very much. I attended dancing classes. Most of all I like Latin-American dances, because they are so passionate, rhythmical and active. So I think that's all for now. Bye, from Anastasiya.

Letter 3

Hi Robert,
I was very pleased to receive your letter! You are interested in me)
And that is good news for me. I want to learn more about you. What would you like to know about me? Please, do not hesitate to ask me I will answer you with pleasure. I looked Brighton on the Internet. The good place to live there. A few words about myself: As you might already know I'm 28 years old girl from Russian small town called Inza. It is approximately 670 km from Moscow. I have never been married but feel ready to make the family with the good and honest person. I want to find the person who will love me and take care of me. I hope that our relations which are so fragile yet will grow day by day. Happiness in the Family is everything which is necessary for the lonely girl such as I am! This's all I need. I am already adult girl and I need my own family! I work as an accountant. I worked at many other places before my girlfriend has helped me with this one. It is very nice, I like it very much. Also I like cooking! I can make a big variety of dishes! My mother used to say that it's very important to cook tasty and delicious food to become a good wife. My favourite is the Russian cuisine! My mother says I do it very good, however I don't eat that much. What kind of food do you like? I like spicy foods. I experiment with others dishes. I think I know English well enough for us to understand each other. I studied English at school after at the University. The English language was my favourite lesson. Of course I don't speak English as good but I'm trying to improve it. Now I live with my mother. I was born when my mum was 30. My parents wanted children so much and they were waiting girl for so long so that when I was born they were so happy and tried to give me all their love and care. My father died natural death, when I was young but he is still in my heart and in my mind. Unfortunately I have neither sisters nor brothers. I feel lonely and it is so difficult to live without man's support without strong man's shoulder on which I would lean. Fortunately I have some good friends who always are with me and help me. I am very much interested in you and our relations. I send you pictures, it I and my partner of Latin-American dances. It only the partner for dance no more. Will you please send me your pictures! It's all for now, I'm going home. I shall wait for your answer. Your Anastasiya.

Letter 4

Hello my dear friend Robert!!!
I was happy to see your letter in my mailbox. I'm glad, that I interested you. I do not understand, why you have not told to me the truth about your age in the first letters. About your age. Yes I understand, that you are more senior, than I. But it not bother me. For me the main thing is soul and heart of the person. The main thing in the person, this kind heart, and a young soul. I think, that we shall be young in soul always. Age it only number. We should not base on age. We should follow the feelings. You agree with me? I did not send email to other people. I have sent email to you only. I have no computer of the house. I write to you from the Internet-cafe. I do not smoke. I did not smoke before. Robert, You would like to see my pictures in the childhood?! I send you my pictures when I was the little girl. In these pictures I and my mum. These pictures old, therefore they not so good. I hope, that you will like these pictures. Also in other picture it is my good girlfriend with red hair. Robert! I always wanted to know how people live in other countries. If you remember from my previous letter I live in Inza. I think you can find it on the map easily. You need to find Ulyanovsk. It is a big city not far from my town, so you can see my town. Inza is a very beautiful city with the population of 18670 people. My city stands on the great Russian river Volga. You might heard about this river. I live near quay. It takes me 20 minutes to get from my house to the riverside. There are many bars and restaurants along the riverside and in Summer many girls and boys spend evenings on the quay. The industry in Inza is very successful. Robert! I shall be glad, if you will tell about your city. I am interested very much! OK? I am like music. I am like all kinds of music. It depends on my mood. But I don't like hardrock and that kind of music. This all now! I should go! I will be glad to receive your letter. I hope you will write to me the truth in next letters. Anastasiya.

Letter 5

Hello my friend Richard!!! How are you?
I am glad to hear from you again. It is pleasant, that you are interested in me. Thanks, that you have written me. I think, that every new letter pulls us together more and more. I think, that you know much about me now. I cannot meet worthy the man which will love, appreciate and respect with me here. Therefore I have decided to search good for the man on the Internet. I was familiar with many young people, but I didn't like any of them. Now I know you and I think we can be very close friends. I hope, that I have made the right choice. I do not want to risk. I want to be happy and to love the persons who will make me happy. I write you with pure intentions. Do you think we can be happy together? Once I had long relations with one guy. We were dating for two years. I thought, that we would marry one day. But suddenly he became so cold with me, he began to treat me so bad, started to drink a lot and spend most of the time with his friends. He became rude with me. He spent time with other women. I was so upset and after that I disappointed in all Russian men. Since that passed one year already. Recently my girlfriend told me, that it is possible to get acquainted with the man through the Internet. I didn't believe in this but decided to try. And I have found you. I am very happy, that we write each other. It is very important for me. I want to be happy with the man and to spend with him the whole my life. I will try to make my man happy. But without his help and his love and understanding it would be impossible. I think I'm ready to try such a wonderful feeling as love again. I hope that you will understand my words. I want to know your opinion about all this. I want to learn more about you. About your soul and background. What is the most important for you: material or spiritual values? I would like to receive more of your pictures. My girlfriend with red hair did some pictures. I will wait for your answer with impatience.
Your friend Anastasiya!

Letter 6

Hello dear Richard,
I am very pleased, that you answered me. How are you? I am ok! Your age not bother me. Do not worry about a difference in the age of. OK? Yes I like animals. I not like rats and mice. Thank you for your interesting letter! Your letters always bring me a lot of pleasure and happiness. When I read your letter I feel, that you are the kind and good person, and you will never hurt me! My heart starts to beat more often, when I read your letter, and I think, that you are that person, whom I waited for so long. I am pleased, that we are so similar and it is wonderful to feel, that you are interested in me! I promise you, that I will be sincere in my letters!
Last night I talked to my mother about us. After my dad has died, she became closer to me and I decided to tell her, that I correspond with you. I said that you are not from Russia and she encouraged me. My mother was glad to hear, that I met a good person (that's what I told her about you, as you are really very nice) but warned to be careful because she remembers how I suffered with the previous boyfriend. But I ensured her, that you are not that kind of man, who will make me suffer. I told her how interesting and important you are for me and she gave me her blessing and said she would pray for us! She said, that if my dad were alive he would be happy for me.
Yesterday evening I had good time thinking with my mother, what to write you about me in this next letter. I hope, that it is pleasant for you! They say I have good character, and I'm not interested in married men because to destroy their family is very bad! I want to tell you, that if we shall be together one day, I will try to be a good wife for you and will never deceive you with another man! I think to betray the husband it is the biggest sin and I am not capable to do this as many other women! I want to be the best wife, I even read the book in which key rules of the good wife were written. My life target is not the money but the happiness in family. I don't want to say, that if everything is ok with us I will sit at home and keep the house, I would like to find the job, if you don't mind. As for my education I have good knowledge! I studied for the accountant approximately for 6 years and I'm good at it. I have good job, but salary is so small so I need to save money all the time (it is $ 210 per month). I don't have my own phone and computer so I write you from the Internet-cafe. I think it's even better that I do not have much money as they make people worse and do not make them happy! Of course I earn more than many people here but it is enough only for meal and some clothes. I think, that we should not speak about the incomes because it's not the main thing. Well, it's time to go to home and I can't afford my own phone and computer to write you from home and sometimes to call you, it is very expensive here. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
Your Anastasiya.

Letter 7

Hello my dear Richard,
It is so pleasant to come from work and find your letter in my mailbox. How you have spent time in weekend? I hope ok?! I have spent time in a garden. We with mum have a garden near to city. We have spent time there all weekend. A lot of work was in a garden. How there was your day? I am so tired, I had a long working day. I made the quarter balance from the beginning of year. Due to the new requirements in registrating official papers I had to rewrite many documents and to recount the figures. Now it's just the figures and tables in my head. More than that I had to finish this within one day because tomorrow there comes the tax commission. I wonder what for they issue constantly new and new policy? Why isn't it impossible to adhere for a long time to the old rules??? But unfortunately I can't do anything with this. I have to obey to this system. Only one thing makes me happy, that everything is ok with you. It is so pleasant to read your letters, when I reread them I come over all the troubles and difficulties so easy. It is very easy for me with you. I was born on May, 8. Richard! I can tell to you my last name. But I think, that else early to exchange last name. I have not found out you enough to write to you my last name. Richard! I think, that we should find out each other better, before I write you my last name. Ok? I hope you understand me! I am so tired now so I'd better go to home I will think of you and it will give me new energy to spend tomorrow's day and write you again!
Hugs and kisses, your Anastasiya.

Letter 8

Hello my dear Richard,
It is so pleasant to get your letter again! You filled up my life with a new feeling, which I forgot for quite a while. It is so wonderful! I would like to come more often to the Internet-cafe to get your letters, but the job takes a lot of time and energy. How there was your day? Fortunately I have performed my work well. The tax commission was happy with my work. Certainly not without mistakes. But as a whole all is ok. I work for the company the food goods. We have a some shops with products. Before I work as the seller of clothes, and the manager on sales.
Richard! Recently I have told my girlfriends about you. They were very surprised, that I have found the man of my life through the Internet. They heard, that lots of Russian women get acquainted through the Internet and come to live in the foreign country with the husband, and they wish us good luck! They wanted to know all the details concerning our correspondence but I said that it's very private and told them just a few general things about us (for them not to feel jealous that such a wonderful man correspond with me not with them)! All my girlfriends are married and their husbands are Russian. Unfortunately most of them are unhappy in family and there are many reasons for that and they even envy me that everything is ok with us! I am very pleased, that our relations do the right way! I would like to ask you about the happiest day in your life What was it like, what did you feel at that moment? I not wear glasses all time. I wear glasses only on work, or I read. I do not look many TV. I do it exclusively to look news. Now it's time to go home. I will think of you this evening. Take care.
Your Anastasiya. Bye!
I have made video. I hope, that you can see my video. Write to me, you liked my video?!

Letter 9

Hello my love Richard!
I am so happy! You're in my mind all the time since then we write to each other. I like to reread your letters, they cheer me up. I want to tell you, that my heart starts beating more often when I think of you!!! How are things with you? I hope everything is fine. I am glad, that you liked my video. It is video it is made by means of the digital camera. You can make video for me? I shall be glad to see you on video. Richard, For me it is not important where to live in the future. For me it is important to meet good the man to live in harmony and the consent with him. I am ready to live in any country if I shall meet the man which will love and respect with me. I shall love, appreciate, and to respect mine the man mutually. My girlfriend with red hair has the husband. But she is not absolutely happy unfortunately. The Internet-cafe it is closed on Sunday unfortunately. Also the Internet-cafe not always openly on Saturday. I go on gymnastics one or two times to a week. My happy day in a life, it you has answered my letter. I want to ask you send me some more of your pictures, I will look on them and feel as if you are here with me. I want so much to watch your smile, to feel your breath, to be in your arms. All I want is to love you and to be loved by you. My feelings to you are clean and virgin. Now everything around me is beautiful, kind, gentle and romantic!!! I want to have the family and loving husband to feel his care and support in difficult situation. I was very close to my dream in the past, but my trustfulness made me suffer. This is the main thing for me - to trust the person with whom I am. To trust each word, gesture, sigh or smile. In the world now there is so much meanness and deceit, that it is necessary to make sure that you trust people whom you call friends. I'm not saying about you, I know you not for so long but feel that you are honest with me and that makes me believe that I can love and be loved with you!!! My mother used to tell me that I should be opened to friends. She asked about us and I said that everything is ok. I told my mother a lot about you. She hopes, that I will be happy at last. Mother told me how she had met my dad. How they fell in love at first sight, were dating then and after all married. I am so upset that I don't have the phone to call you. I want so much to hear your voice and to look at your eyes, to hold your hands. I want to make you happy. Please, give me the chance to do it! Give me the chance to feel love again. I will wait for your letter.
Your Anastasiya!
ps. Here my photos, where I visit aerobics. I like aerobics. I hope
you find out me there?!

Letter 10

Hello my Richard!
I am happy to get your letter again. When I read it I understood, that you are very important to me, that you are the person who can understand me and support in difficult situation. Like any other woman I dream to have my own family, honest, loyal and reliable husband with whom we will take care of our pretty children in our wonderful house. I am happy, that I met you and written to you instead of somebody else! That day was the happiest in my life. I know that the main things between two people are trust and understanding any relations without it can not exist. Without trust and understanding we can not be that close to each other. I hope that we are in such close and sensual relations. It seems to me there was a spark between us since the beginning. Now I know I always dreamed about you. You are my fate I want to be with you, to embrace you, to see and love you only. I can't stop thinking of you. I wake up and fell asleep with the thoughts about you. Each letter from you makes my heart warmer. I dream of that day when I will see you personally, hear your magic voice and feel the warmth of your body. It is special footwear for aerobics. I do not know as to write it in English unfortunately. I have no driver's license. I have no the car. I not mind if you speak such things. Today is good weather it's warm and sunny outside. I like to walk in such perfect days or to leave the city for the picnic with friends. It is so wonderful. I think I'm probably too romantic but I like the nature very much. Yesterday I dreamed about us walking in the forest together, holding hands and picking up flowers. When I think of you, my darling, I become so happy and it is so pleasant and joyfully in my heart that I want to fly far away in the sky. Now I know that I can not live without you, without your words, without your embraces and kisses. You are the person whom I was looking for the whole my life and I don't want to lose you. You are my sense of life. I have nothing but you in this world. I will wait for your letter with impatience. A lot of kisses to my darling,
Your loving Anastasiya. Bye! bye!

Letter 11

Dear Richard!
How was your day? I hope all ok! My day was ok! I thought of you all the day long! I like to go to theatre or cinema. I like cinema about love. I like to look comedies in theatre. I like to go to museums. I like history. I visit theatre of times in a month and more often. It depends on my work. If I have time, I go to theatre. I did not hear about Saladin. What is it?
Darling I was thinking a lot about us and I am sure, if we decide to be together, I will never leave you till the end of my life. I wrote you about myself, about my interests and my situation. I am looking only for serious relationship, not for a short adventure. I'm not that kind of girl who wants to take advantage of men. If I was looking for a man just for one night I would find him here in Russia, it's not so difficult. But I'm looking for something different, something serious. I need the longterm relationship, very serious and fulfilled with deep feelings towards each other, satisfaction in every moment of being together, not only physically, but also spiritually. This is my desire about long lasting relations. I hope you want the same thing. I would be glad to have a man like you in my life. I am a woman for only one man and really reliable. I have never had short relations and I don't want it. I think great feelings to each other need time to grow. Be sure I will wait for it. Richard! I thought here, what if we with you shall speak by phone?! I think, that it would be good to speak by with you to phone. I have an idea. If you give me your phone number I will try to call you. OK? I will wait for your phone number so I can hear your voice. This is important for me. I understand we know each other not for a very a long time. We have written only a some letters to each other. But I hope you will not deny me and soon I will call you and hear your voice! Well... Your Anastasiya.

Letter 15

Hello John!

If you do not trust, do not write to me. OK? You write each time Robert or Richard. You deceive me?

Letter 17

Hello Richard!
Yes really letters are similar my. I do not understand as it could happen. I write to you my letters independently. I write to you the truth in letters. I understand now you will not trust me, as before. If I would be on your place, I could not trust you. How we shall continue? I do not know. It is very a pity, that all has gone not as it is necessary.
