Letter(s) from Galina Plyusnina to Michael (USA)

Letter 1

Hello,
Thank you so much for your reply. I was surprised and happy to hear back from you.
Sorry for the delay. I don’t often use this e-mail address.
Well, I do hope that you’ll forgive me and write me back very soon.
I would like to get to know you better. I am sure there is so much interesting we can find about each other.
I promised to send you my picture and so here I am attaching my picture.
I will tell you more about myself in my next letter.
I will be waiting impatiently for your reply.
Have a good day!
Take care.
Tatyana.

Letter 2

Hello!
This is me again.
As I promised I am going to tell you more about myself now.
My name is Tatyana.
I am 28 years old.
I have never been married and I have no children.
My height is 5.4(166cm) and my weigh is 110(51kg). You can have an impression about it from my picture.
I am a very affectionate person. I believe in a life full of physical, emotional and spiritual happiness. And I want to share such a life with a person who wants the same.
I love the outdoors, spending time at home with a beloved person.
I love nature, water, picnics.
But I don’t do this as often as I would like it to be as I don’t have the one who could share it with me.
I am honestly ready to open my heart to a person who could really appreciate this.
I work as a shop-assistant and do sell clothes for women (skirts, trousers, blouses ). I really like my job. It is great when you can help someone to look more beautiful and I like to be around people.
I live in Russia. The city is called Novosibirsk. If you look at the map, you will find it close to the center, in the beginning of Sibiria. but somewhere I am going to get a student visa and I am going to come to your country.
I thought a lot about it and had come to such decision.
I love Russia but I do really want to move to a more stable country. The life is very complicated here. I know it will not be easy in a foreign country. But I am sure I can do much more in your country. I am a hard-working person and I am not afraid of difficulties, so with the opportunities that your country gives I can do more than I do here.
I already have some experience living and working in a foreign country. Some years ago I worked in Australia and I should say I liked it very much. So I know what is waiting for me and I don’t want to waste time. And I decided to try and find a person I could rely on, the one who will be with me in joy and sorrows. We all work a lot now and it takes so much time that we miss the most important in this life – love relations and family.
Living in Australia I had relations with a man. But I had to go back to my country as my visa was over. He didn’t want to wait for me any longer. It was too difficult for him. It was a very hard period for me but I could handle it. And now I am ready to fall in love and to have new relations. I tried to have correspondence with foreigners. But as soon as they get to know I was from Russia they disappeared. They thought I was a scammer. I hope that you are not scared that I am from Russia.
I want you to understand, I am not a scammer. I don’t need money from you. I heard much about it and I really feel sorry for women who are true and want to find their happiness.
All this is so wrong as there are so many people who really want to find their second halves. And internet is a very good opportunity for this.
I hope that you like my pictures. I am not a model, of course.
I am just an average Russian girl who is truly seeking her love...
I hope that you are interested in me and I will hear back from you. And perhaps, in the future we will have an opportunity to meet. I go to the internet cafe 3 times a week. That is why I am going to write to you in a day.
Well, I hope that now you understand me better and I will be waiting impatiently for your reply.
Tatyana.

Letter 3

Hi.
I do not know the reason of you keeping silence. Perhaps, you just didn't get my letters. I have sent you some and wrote you more about myself.
I didn't write to you earlier as I didn't see your letter at my email address. If you do not remember me, I wrote you at the dating site. And I've got your reply at my e-mail. But I didn't see it earlier that's why I had a delay. Your letter was in the spam folder.
Perhaps, you are not interested in me. So, please, just write me if you are interested in me or not. And then I will not bother you any more.
Perhaps, you have someone already. Then just write me and I will not wait for you but look for another man.
Maybe you are scared that I am russian. But I don't think it is a problem. I have lived in another country (Australia) and worked there. That's why there will be no difficulties with our communication. I speak English fluently. And I am going to come and live in your country in a month. I am going to enter the University in your country to get another higher education. I could enter the one close to you so we could meet.
I am waiting for your reply. And I will understand everything even if you don't want to talk to me any more.
Tatyana.

Letter 4

Hello again Michael.
I am very glad to hear from you. Thank you for paying attention and for writing back. I am going to write to you 3 times a week so we could get to know each other better.
You can call me Kiska. My name is Tatyana, But all my friends call me Kiska. it is my nickname...
Thank you so much for sending me your picture.
I am 28 y.o.
But I don’t care of age difference. I think when two people really love each other they don’t think of the age..
I am going to tell you a little bit more about my lifestyle.
My apartment is rather small but very cozy. It is very expensive here to rent an apartment. So this is what I can afford to myself now – one room, no phone and a small kitchen.
I have a cell phone(+7-951-367-2093)but I don’t think I am able to call to other countries. Therefore write letters to me here.
But my friends say it is very comfortable. It is difficult to live alone and do all by myself. My parents live in another city. I moved from there when I was 17. And I don’t see them often. We are not in very good relations with them. But any time they need my help, I will come and do what I can for them.
Though I am 28 y.o. I am ready to settle down, to have family, to give all my time to my husband. I think that every person needs a place he could come and feel easy and comfortable.
This is what I am looking for and what I need. I don’t want to be lonely any more. I was disappointed several times. And I don’t trust men here any more. By the way, how it happened that you still haven’t found your second half? You are a very interesting person and a good man. And I am sure you break hearts.
You already know that I am trying to get a student visa to your country. And it could be a very good opportunity for us to meet if we like each other through letters and find that we match each other. The situation in our country is very uncomfortable now. With our Minister Medvedev we have no democracy. And our new president Putin same as Medvedev.
There are no good laws; we live like it was during the Soviet times. And I don’t like it at all. Other countries are developing fast. But we are still on the same level as it was many years ago. And consequences of an economic crisis have very painfully struck Russia. I liked living in Australia.
It is a big and well developed country with lots of opportunities for good life. I lived there for 1,2 years. But unfortunately, I had to go back because of my visa. I was there in 2002y.
And it was a very good time for me. I enjoyed it.
I worked as a nurse with children. And I liked the family I lived in very much. They are good people and they helped the first time a lot. My language skill was not good and they helped me to speak and understand it better. My living there helped to write and speak English fluently. So there will be no problems with our communication.
I told youalready in my previous letter that a man I had there just left me and I don’t want to anything to remind me about this again.
I am going to tell you about interests and hobbies in my next letter. I have to stop here as the time in the internet cafe is limited. I don’t have my personal computer at home as most people in Russia do.
Well, I will better stop here for now.
Tatyana.
P.S.
I will try to send you my pics with each letter.
I hope you don't mind?

Once again I added my first letter in bottom because I am not sure did you get it or not.

Well, I like cooking very much. This is one of the things that make me relax and forget about all the bad things that happen during the day. Salads, different soups, pasta, souses, cakes and pies– it is just a short list of what I cook. I like very much to try new things. It is always nice to go to a good restaurant or to a nice pizza place, cafe.

What’s favorite types movie do you like?
It is always so nice to rent some movie, to cook something tasty or something sweet, to invite someone of my friends and enjoy the time together. It is especially nice doing it in the cold winter evening with a warm blanket and a cup of hot tea or coffee.
I do not smoke, but sometimes I can drink a little wine (red) or beer.
I always try to find time to read something. The last book I’ve read was “Loneliness in the internet” by Vishnevskiy.
I liked it very much though it is sad but it shows the true life of people. I also like to read classical things by Tolstoy, Bernard Show, Dostoevskiy and others.
