Letter(s) from Margarita Kiselyova to Jacob (USA)

Letter 1

Hello there! How are you? I'm glad that I met you on a dating site and get your responce this evening! I deleted my profile, because i don't like dating sites:) or probably I do something wrong. And I should admit that I feel uncertainty :) But I nevertheless hope that your heart is open for new friends, and I know that right now I must write at least the most important things about myself. Well, You know, my name is Viktoriya. My height is 169cm (I think it is 5,7 feet). Did you think I am low? Or not))) My weight, if I'm not mistaken - 118 pounds. I'm 28. My birthday is October, 31 I was in relationship for 2 years. I have no kids and at present live alone by myself, that means no boyfriend, what is about you? Now I live in the Russian Federation. But I lived in the Usa Nevada the city of Reno for some time. I trained and worked in a dentist area. I am a dentist. If it is interesting to you, I shall speak more about it. I aware that Russia maybe too far away from you, but I think it will not be a barrier. And probably soon I shall travel again. Now I live in a little town in a central part of Russia, the city of Efremov, Tulsky region. mmm... yes I like to travel.I visited different countries. I shall speak about it later. I think it's great to have some friends who live in the other parts of the world. Do you agree with me? And I sincerely think that for friendship there are no borders or distances. But enough about it. I feel that I should finish my letter because I even don't know if you are still interested in a dialogue with me or not. I hope you do. But if you have no desire to talk to me anymore, please, at least, write me about it. I want to ask you some questions. :). Simply I would be glad to know Where you live? where do you work, and do you like your work? And, in general, what are your interests? It's a banal questions certainly :) but i would like to know more about you. And by the way, I will be glad to have more your pictures! Therefore do not hesitate :) I will write you the day after tomorrow if everything is alright! Hope to see your letter soon ! best regards! Viktoriya

Hi !!! It's me Viktoriya. The first thing, I want to do is to say "thank you" for your fast answer!!! :) It means that your heart is open for new friends:) I think it's Great, because friendship brightens people's life and refreshes souls, doesn't it? That is why I was so glad to see your letter. I am happy to have received the message from the dating site, with your email address from your profile, and have decided to write a letter to you, and I wasn't mistaken. Ok, Probably you have already noticed that I'm not able to keep my emotions inside. :) Of course I am talking about joy, about good mood, about all good and positive things that can be in my soul. I always try to share my joy with other people. I never try to show people that I am grieved or I have some problems. Therefore all people who I work with and communicate are sure that everything in my life is perfect, that I am a happy woman, that I have no disappointments. But unfortunately it is not always true, because when a person is lonely, nothing can cure sadness. And if you ever felt the same, of course you understand what I am speaking about. Well, I must tell that I try to write in English as good as possible (within my knowledge). I hope you understand all what I write:) I have been already studying English for more than 10 years, but I understand that my English is not quite correct. Therefore I apologize for my mistakes :). At school I wanted to be a traveler or singer and even finished a musical school. But I sing songs during my life just for myself and do it quite good :) and I play the guitar. do you play any musical instruments or sing? :) When I finished school I realized that I want to work in a medical field.
And after school I entered The Kazan State Medical University (the Dentist faculty). After 7 years of studying there I received an excellent diploma on "Dentist".An excellent diploma is called red in our country. The red diploma is the highest mark at graduating from the university in our country. I have been working as a dentist for 4 years, I like my job in spite of the fact I have to work a lot. Also I have interesting seminar trips to many places. I go there to get my work experience. Once I was offered a training course n Canada, and I agreed. It was a good chance for me to see the world. During the courses in Canada I studied English. Then I decided to work in English speaking countries. It's a good experience for me. Also it's very interesting. After finishing the training courses in Canada I was offered the job in the USA in Nevada. I accepted it with great pleasure. But half a year ago I returned to Russia. It was necessary to settle some questions. And Now I work in a local clinic in our town. Can you tell me how you chose your job? Well, what you are looking for in a woman ? Probably you have many female friends in the Internet. :) ..mmm.. What else to tell you about myself as I have little time.. By the way, I use the computer in the laboratory and work from Monday till Friday. But sometimes on Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, maybe I will be able to write letters at weekends, if you want :) This computer is located in the medical analyses room. Well, now this computer will be used for my dialogue with ! :) I think you understood, I'm still single and I have no children. I wanted as well to learn more about your family .I miss my parents too much... Now I have to go back to work and hope to see you soon. Have a nice day ! Best regards. Viktoriya. PS. I sent you more pictures. Hope you like it.

Letter 3

Hi from Russia again !Thank you for picture, you are handsome ! I Hope you were feeling good when you got this message from me. How are you doing today? I hope you're great. Today the weather is getting colder here in my country. But I like autumn. What about you ? Autumnis a very beautiful season here.The trees change their colours, everything is so bright and colourful I would like to know what month is the best there in your place? I would like to know more about your place. It's very interesting for me. I explained you the location of my town in previous letter. Here we have a park. There are a lot of trees all over the streets and it is very nice here especially in warm seasons of the year. We have a lot of forests around the town. There are a lot of rivers and lakes here in our region and sometimes my friends and I go for picnics or camping all over the region. Also you can find a cinema, libraries and monuments to famous writers here in the town. There is a little orthodox church. I want to let you know that I am an orthodox christian. My mom Was a christian and she baptised me too. I believe in God, and think that the main thing in religion is to live with faith in your soul and it is not necessary to go to church very often. Much more important thing is to believe sincerely deep inside your heart and soul. Do You agree with me? What about your Faith? Also about my family, it was always important for me. I think many people don't understand completely that family is a big treasure. Many people realise the value of a family only when loose it. I always loved my parents and now I miss them very much. My both parents passed away. Daddy died when I was a small child. He was killed in a military conflict. Mom died when I was 17 years old. After daddy's death she was always sick and spent a lot of time in hospitals. That was why I being a little girl was able to do everything by myself, I cooked meals, sewed clothes to help my brother. I had to study and work in the evening to support us. It was a hard time but it just made me stronger. And I hope I became the very person, lady that my parents wanted me to become. I think that those pleasures and griefs, successes and difficulties that were in my life made me who I am now. Now it seems to me that I was saying to my mom about my love too seldom, and now I so regret about it. forgive me that I write about it. It is my life and it is a part of me. Simply I want you to learn me more, because I as well would be glad to learn more about you. Yes I have a brother. My brother's name is Oleg. You can see him in the picture I am going to attach to this letter. He is a policeman. Oleg is 31 years old, he has been married for 5 years and he has a daughter - Yana, His wife is very nice, her name is Katya, we are very amicable, Also we have a grandmother, she is 83 years old, her name is Victoriya, She lives in the city, about 80 miles from us. I like to visit her somedays. in the future I hope that we'll exchange telephone numbers of each other. To hear a voice of each of us. But at first we should find out each other a little bit more. As I consider that telephone conversation will be more serious contact to the man. Therefore I should find out you better before giving you my telephone number. I hope that's not bad for you. Unfortunately I have some bad experience, but I do not want to speak about it. You should understand me. As it's just a question of some time. Ok? As for the question about the ability to use social nets for example facebook or Yahoo Messenger. Unfortunately it is impossible for me to use them because I do not have a computer at home and use one at work. And at work we are not allowed to use social nets for communication.I hope you understand me. Well, I should go home now. I promised to cook supper for my brother :) Potatoes, meat, vegetables... He wanna me to cook for him, he says Katya does not cook so tasty as I do :) When I asked him what he will do if I am far ? :) "I will die hungry" :)))))))) Oh my brother is allways hungry, he likes when I bake pies very much. He likes to visit me so much. I live not very far from them -about 2 districts away. I will wait for your next letter with impatience. Have a nice day ! Viktoriya.

Letter 4

Hello my dear friend ! Darling I am so sorry for not writing you so long. I understand what you were feeling... I am sorry... But I was sick. There were problems with my throat. At first there was just pain in my throat then I ran a high temperature. And then I could hardly realised the reality and my brother called the ambulance. They hospitalised me and it turned I had a very bad tonsillitis. There was nothing but to operate my tonsils. The situation was really serious... When I became contious I wanted to go to write you darling but doctors did not allow me to leave hospital. Now I am at home and have the opportunity to come to work to write you. You know all the time I was in hospital I did not even think about the operation I thought only about you and your horror of my disappearance. I know you worried much but I could not leave the hospital... I hope you understand me and forgive! I hope I can call you my friend I hope you are not against, and I will be glad to be your friend too. If not just tell me:) What's the weather like outside in your place? Today it is very fresh. At night it was rain outside, but in the morning it was clear. I like when the sky is clear, but rain's good as well. I like to watch rain drops falling down. I like to go to the street during the warm rain and walk and fell how the drops are titillating my nose. Do you like it? Ok, enough about it :) But all those words were true. :) I think there are many other things about me that I must tell you. In general,speaking about me. I have various interests. I like sports, especially bicycle, swimming! So it is important for me to keep fit. I like domestic plants very much. At home I grow plants and flowers. I have a lot of them. My friends is always joking about this. They say in the nearest future there won't be place for me in my apartment because my favourite plants are everywhere. It took me 3 hours to water them, I always speak to them, sing and smile and they grow better. Do you like flowers and plants? Do you have them at home? Of course I adore cooking like the most part of Russian women. But I don't do it very often only at weekends for my friends and my brother's family. I am interested in the process of cooking but don't like eating it myself though I cook pretty well.I like cooking for somebody!!!!!!!!! I would love to cook for you and watch you eating. Do you like cooking??????????? I absolutely love reading, I like to listen to music, play the piano. I like different books. When I read books I turn into the main character and live his life.Only when the book is read I come back to real life. Maybe it is so because of my imagination which works well. It is my first time I try to correspondence with man in Internet world. The thing is that I plan work abroad for six months or more and I would like to meet a nice man to be my guide or just be good friend to spend time with. I think that it is hard enough to live in foreign town without friends. I am from a small town here in Russia, I don't want to be alone over there without any relatives or friends! I want to see the real life over there and maybe you will be able to tell me more about your culture and life over there and give me some information in general! You know, life in Russia is rather difficult, especially in small towns. I don't want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here . There are no perspectives, it is hardly possible to explain but I want you to know my plans.I will be allowed to work abroad!
I’m a hardworking lady!(I will work as a dentist). I have an international certificate (diploma), and I want to work hard and change my life! You see that maybe I'm too naive but I still believe in miracles to come! I decided to find a friend and make his city to be my destination. I think it is great chance to change my life. I am full of plans and dreams! I had a boyfriend in Russia. But I got only roughness and disrespect. Before my traveling to the USA I gave up our relations because I could not stand it any longer. Well let me stop speaking about him now as he does not deserve to be spoken about!!!! Now I want to meet a man with a kind heart; a man who will respect a lady.I want my man to be reliable, polite. And I am afraid of man's roughness very much, I think that true force of a man is in his heart. A man should win love and tenderness of a woman by beauty of his heart, but not by force of a body. Not only a pen pal but my soulmate, able to share my life with. And all my dreams are about it:) Do you feel the same ? What do you think about this in whole? I am ready to continue to write letters to you forever and ever :) Now it is my favorite occupation, and it is difficult for me to stop, but I should start working... I will wait for your letter! Write to me soon! Viktoriya.
