don't forget to live....

Hello, my new friend Todd! I am very pleased, that you have answered my letter. First of all I want to apologize for my not fast reply. I have no computer in my house. Yes, it's really pity... I can't answer you in the same moment as you. Thank you that you have found time write me letter. I think you have many questions to me. I shall try describe myself. I do not know what tell you in the beginning... Well,
let's begin! I would like you call me Olga. I'm 27. My birthday - August,25 1978. My height - 5 foots 6 inches. My weight - 116 pounds.
As you see in my photo, I have brown eyes, and color of my hair - light brown. I have serious intentions, and I do not want to make a wrong choice... I tried write to you, and now I see, that you answered. We can start our corresponding, I think so... I want to be fair with you. Be fair with me too. I live in Russia, in city Nizhniy Novgorod. Did you heard about it? It is very ancient city. Nizhniy Novgorod is located in 600 kilometers from Moscow. Nizhniy Novgorod the big and wellknown city in Russia, it is located on the river Volga. I thought in beginning to write that I live in Russia. But..
you would not write me. Anybody would not decide write me. Therefore I have put random figures in zip code of USA. Forgive to me this small lie.Services of this acquaintances site very expensive. Don't you think so? I made payment using Western Union. I hope that it was not vain... We are two persons who want to meet someone ONLY for serious relations. I'm right? We can try to know better each other, but if you do not want, it is your choice... Little about me. I have higher education. I started my education in secondary school, in Nizhniy Novgorod. After I have finished it, I have entered Economic Faculty of Technical University. I have finished it 5 years ago. Now I work as a bookkeeper. I am engaged in financial affairs of our firm.

Letter 2

Hello Todd! I am very glad to receive the letter from you today. I am very glad that you still have desire write to me. It is very good that does not confuse you, that I live in Russia. Your country seems to me very interesting and completely another than ours. USA is on other half of our planet. I do not know a difference in time between us, but I precisely know that a difference in time with New York 8 hours.
Todd, as you already know I work as a bookkeeper in small firm. I am engaged in calculation of financial charges, expenses of this firm,
various debits, the credits. I am engaged in distribution of monetary stream of our firm. In general all accounts department.. I hope you understand about what I speak. We live far each other... It is a very big distance for both of us. But this distance only seems a big. It at all does not frighten me. It seems to me especially interesting. Don't you think so? I have read in newspaper (it was already probably for a long time ago) that in other advanced countries (Europe and Northern America) meets situation, that women are more thoughtless (not so serious) than men. Is it true? I very much would like to learn your opinion, also why do you search for the woman on the Internet? I am for the first time have acquaintance through the Internet. Now I wish tell you about me directly. I have never been married, and I want to marry. What I search in the man, most especial - friendship. I do not like to argue, altercate in a various occasion. I want meet somebody - who wants to have an entertainment, but understands, that life - is not always an entertainment. I need somebody who is fair, also care,
warm and sexual. Also I believe there requirement good appeal between these two people. I want to have friend which later (if everything will be correct) could be more than just a friend. The most important parts of relations - love, trust and communication. But, without trust others two thing does not matter. You cannot contact someone irrespective even you love him or her, but not trusting him or her.
The love is important, but you should trust blindly to other person,
really love them because you should know they real love you back. Of course you have a question, "Why Russian women search husbands in other countries”. Because of many reasons, I think, and first of all - economic level of Russia. Our country is not rich and it is very difficult to find good work. Russian men cannot earn enough money to hold their family. They very lazy. They start to drink alcohol and become angry. It enters into divorce. Of course there are a lot of good men. Yes Todd, it is true. But they are already married. If they receive many money, anyway they also start spending all for nothing to drink alcohol or other women. All of them like "Kasanova". In our country amount of women is more than men. So men try to low women,
though a woman is stronger physically and psychologically. She manages a household, brings up children and has a constant work in the same time. There is an opinion that Russian men in degradation now. I want to get married abroad as I’m concerned about my future. I want to have an ordinary, calm life, though I must leave my friends and change culture. It's very difficult. There are many men here which would like to be a part of my life, but a lot of them have been married before,
have kids and are bitter about marriage all together. Some of them have trouble opening up and showing there true feelings and there are the ones who lie, cheat and disrespect any man they get involved with.
These are only a few reasons why I am still single, I think it is better to be lonely than to be with someone and be miserable. So, my search for that perfect man continues. I had no time tell you, Todd,
about it in my this letter because I write letters to you on my work as I have no a personal computer. I have no children but I would like to have them. I think, that I would be good mother. I never saw my parents. My parents have left me in a orphanage. I have no relatives,
at least I did not know them. It is unpleasant for me to recollect my childhood. I grew in a orphanage, where lack of parent's warm... I know, how it is hard to not have relatives. So I am ready to give my future husband and children everything. They will not be lonely,
because I shall surround them with warm and love. Living in orphanage I've understood the real values of the life: do kindness to people and it will come back to you doubled. There are many problems in Russia.
People became evil and closed. That's why I decided to find a husband abroad Russia. If I'll have opportunity to leave from here for the best life, I'll do it... I will leave Russia. I shall not have a problems with it. Todd, I already have been in the USA! So I have told you about my dreams. May be they will not come true but these are my dreams. And what about your dreams? I like to visit cinema. Oh, I love it! I like to read books. I have many free time after my work,
therefore I have an opportunity to read. I love various love stories,
detectives and very, very much I love classical russian literature.
Also I love various music. I like different music, all depends on mood. When I'm sad I listen slow, sensual music. Jazz and blues. When I have good mood I listen modern music. I like pop, rock, dance.
American music very pleasant to me (Jennifer Lopez "Baby I love You" and Aerosmith "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing", and many others.), as well as Russian. Bi-2, Rondo are Russian rock-groups, but it is not all my favorite groups, it's a lot of, at once all of them will not remember. Jeniffer Lopez, Aerosmith, Moby and other American groups.
The American film in Russia has huge popularity. They, as believe, are the greatest. I love American films, and I love many American actors.
I frequently go hiking in a wood, I like camping, BBQ or I like to go by bicycle on summer. I have own bicycle. In Winter I go skiing and skating. All these distract me from everyday problems. So what do you do, when you have problems and when you are sad? My hobby if it is possible to tell so - English language. I have loved English for a long time when I studied at school. In Russia the program of training necessarily includes foreign language, as a rule - English, German or French. I entered in group of the English language and I am still happy that I've made it. I like very much your language. After school,
I continued studying English language in the institute. It is a very soft and easily-memorized language for me. Now I attend courses of the English language. I've been studing your language for 16 years. I want to learn this language perfectly. I know that now I admit mistakes,
but I hope you won't angry. I spent a lot time to write this letter. I wait your answer Todd. I have many ideas, but I do not want to rush this precious moment when two souls are looking towards each other across the continents for an everlasting friendship. Todd, I send you other my pictures.
Your friend Olga

Letter 3

Hi Todd! How are you today? I hope you were pleased to receive my letter because when I'm receiving your letter, I really was admire.
Many thanks to you. I have perfectly understood everything you wrote to me. As I already spoke you I know English rather well. Todd, as you already know, I have no computer in my house and for this reason I'm writing to you from my work. Therefore I'm sorry, if not so quickly answered your letter. I work from Monday till Friday and very much often on Saturday. My working day begins at 8:00 and last to 17:00.
Sometimes I'm working till 19.00. But it's not easy, because my boss doesn't let use the computer with private purposes. We do not have unlimited Internet access on a work. I use a computer secretly to write HI to you (when my boss - not in office). Internet is expensive in Russia. My monthly income - 8000 roubles, it about 280 American dollars. But this money suffices me and even is possible save my money. I can safely tell, that I adore travelling. I travelled in Russia, I saw Moscow, Samara, Saint-Petersburg, Sochi. But I have never been in Europe. Also I was in the USA!!! Yes Todd, I have been in USA not so long time ago. Nine months ago. I went there because of my work. About 2 years I worked in a Advertising Agency. 5 person from our firm have gone to the USA for training. We went in Advertising Education Institute "News and Media Relations", Dallas , Texas, USA.
You heard about company "Temerlin"? There we training. It was very interesting and cognitive for me. I have the certificate which allows me to work in the USA. I have gone there as financial director. Other my colleagues by other professions. Now I do not work in this firm any more. This firm has ceased to exist (broken up) about 5 months ago.
Now I am usual bookkeeper in small firm. But it is not difficult, I very much like my work. My new colleagues very good people. It is most important for me. We have very quickly found common interests. I have some friends. But now I have found you, Todd! I am very pleased, and I shall think about you. I tried to find love and happiness here, but I have felt lie. We have proverb in Russia: Bitter truth is better than sweet lie. I think, that you are fair man. Am I right? After all my histories you may think, that everything is bad, but it is not true. I have already told you, that my parents have left me in a orphanage.
But, my childhood was not so difficult. I'm so think. Only it was very lonely without parents. I had many friends. I had very interesting childhood. When I became more adult... then I had more difficulties.
Not only me. I think you understand, that it's hard for lonely kid in this severe world... But the most important never put your hands. It is necessary to go next level. I understood it for a long time. Don't you think so? It is true! Now I have a good life, I have friends. Good work. It is rather good here. I rent my apartment. I pay for it. I have no opportunity to buy it. It's very expensive for me here. I should work to have my own apartment 10 years! Todd, I make all independently: man's and female duties. I can hammer nails, carry heavy bags.... By the way I'm quite good plumber (sanitary technician). Life everything has learned me... I can hope only for myself. But sometimes I so want feel a strong shoulder near to me...
Yes, I want real man for creation family. Todd, I have the most serious intentions. Very hard to meet geantlemen... Unfortunately.
Therefore I am very glad that have met you. To me very pleasant our dialogue. For me not so important age distinction. Even if you would be 50 or 60 years old, it would not be important for me. These days I so strong wait for your letter. It helps me to distract from all. It as a sweet dream... It is other world for me. Forgive me, if my letter was sad, big and uninteresting to you. Just I wanted to tell you about my life. You should know about it. I promise you not write such letters anymore. And I... I very much would want to learn about your family. How many do you have relatives? Do you love them? How do you think, did they very much help you in your life? It is very, very interesting to me. If you do not want to speak about it... I shall understand... Now I should finish my letter. I wait with alarm your answer. Also I want ask you: had you ever friend from other country?
Is it important for you a nationality? Todd, what foodstuff do you like? I would like to discuss it with you tomorrow.
Yours friend Olga

Letter 4

Hi my most desired Todd. I am very glad to receive your letter again.
Thank you that you do not forget about me and always continue write me, even if I cannot answer you. Yesterday I had a lot of work,
therefore I could not write to you letter, but today I have made it. I am very glad that have met you! Your letters always radiate so much light in my dark sky. Thank you for your fine words. Today as well as always I have seen you in my dreams again!!! You were going to me but you will not kiss me, you only look and smile, you put your hand upon my face and look into my eyes. It is a loving feeling but yet you hold back, not knowing what to do. It is a wonderful feeling, one of contentment, one of security. I felt myself very strange, I wanted embrace you my arms, to gently kiss you and tell you everything will be ok, to feel our passion, to share all things in our beautiful in life. I would be your sweet heart and soul if you would wish to be in this way. Todd, you know, in the childhood I dreamed to find the Prince, with whom I can go on THE Edge OF THE EARTH. Only later, after many years I understood: in real life I cannot meet prince, only in dream... and in a fairy tales. There is NO ideal men. But very similar to an ideal match which is necessary for you, you can find. I can confidentially tell you, that you are - man of my dreams... I can not explain an origin of love. I can not explain why woman draws to the man. And I can not explain why man draws to the woman. It occurs at a subconscious level. Todd, I know that you feel something to me, and I feel that my heart is open for your. I need you very much. I do not present my life without your letters. I know that I want to give you all my tenderness, which for a long time I saved inside me. Nothing can be compared to this feeling of filling up somebody's life. The excitement, which tortures me while I'm waiting for your letters every day. The feeling, which fills every corner of my heart. Every step I make is safe, because I feel you around me. You are my dream, you are my angel, you are my soul, you are my life! I want to be your "Lady in red", about which sang Chris De Burgh. And I want you to know, that I have never felt like this before. You brighten my days and give me the strength to carry on, fighting every day for you. You have shown me deepest emotions and feelings I've kept inside of me for so long. I feel that our relations with you develop into something greater... It so excites my mood. I don't know what I shall do without your letters... I every day with impatience wait your letters. I always worry when I see your letter in inbox. These feelings are not similar on anything. I want to ask you Todd, what we shall do further... I think that we should undertake some steps... Because I cannot, I shall not sustain long dialogue through letters. Every day I understand that you borrow more, more and more places in my heart. I for a long time was alone. And our dialogue becomes bigger than simple dialogue. I am so glad that have met you! You seem to me man of my dream. And I very much want my dream came true... Todd, think about it. I shall wait for your letter... As well as always.

Day by day we close and closer to each other!!! We are going to meet our destiny. Todd today I went to agency and concluded the contract with agency of travel. It was very fast. Yesterday I very much worried and time seemed very long like eternity. But today it was very easy and pleasant. My agent told that process of reception of the visa and registration of round in the USA for me will be fast and painless (smile). I shall receive the visa in next week. He told me to come in agency day after tomorrow. Just in case. He should have communication with me because I have no phone. So it will be better for everyone. I have made a payment for registration of all papers and payment for consideration of the visa. About 100 dollars. Process began.... Day after tomorrow I should know the exact name of the airport where I should fly. My agent should order tickets to you in the USA. Therefore Todd I ask you to inform me the name of the nearest airport for you.
Write me it tomorrow. O.K.? I am so glad. I have magic mood!!! It is so fine... Mhh... Todd. I am so glad that you are ready to meet me. We shall spend at least 4 weeks together. I think that it is big term and it will be enough to learn each other very, very well. I'm sure that it will be unforgettable time for both of us. The idea about our meeting forces my heart to beat very strong and quick. It seems that it's ready to jump from my body. I am very grateful to destiny, that I have found you, my love! Each day brings to me huge pleasure when I see your letter! Todd, your letters mean for me something greater,
than just a letter! When I wake up in the morning I think about you,

Letter 6

Hi my lovely and gentle Todd. I am so glad to see again your letter today. Now it is very important to see your letters and read it. Now I need your support, especially now.... It is so important for me. Now I feel small uncertainty in that I do. I feel that this meeting, not just a meeting - it is very important step for both of us. Today I went to agency. Todd my agent informed me the name of the airport where I shall fly to you in the USA. Todd my agent also has chosen to me date of flight it will be . It is wonderful that soon we shall be together. He informed me the price of the ticket and payment of services of agency. It will cost for me approximately 1650 dollars.
Everything, all charges are included in this sum. It is the insurance,
the ticket up to Moscow, support up to the airport. Recently in our country was very big scandal because of several travel agencies which deceived tourists, they at all had no the license for work in tourist sphere. Therefore behind work of travel companies and agencies is conducted very steadfast supervision. Now they are obliged by law to care of clients, they must give a full spectrum of services for their clients. And because of it the prices raise. My agent explained everything to me. But all the same it was a little unexpected for me to hear it. But I didn't told anything to my agent of travel. I told that in 5-6 days I shall make a payment. I will be glad that process of cooperation with agency fruitful and successful. Agent told, that I SHOULD BUY TICKETS IN THEIR AGENCY. Now it is OBLIGATORY condition for all agencies in Russia!!! And Todd I cannot make payment completely independently. I did not speak you earlier how much money I have now.
I have only 400 dollars. But it will be insufficiently for payment.
You know that my salary very small. 280 dollars per month. I did not ask you for the help earlier. Because I did not know how much money this travel will precisely cost for me. Now I ask you for the help with payment of my contract. Yes, I agree, that it was not so fair. I did not speak you about money. Forgive me please. Todd I ask you for the help. I ask you to send me other money (1250 dollars) for payment of my contract. Todd I have very strong desire to meet you. I very much want you to see and be with you, even some days. But I know that I shall not want to leave you. I am just the woman which want to be happy and to make happy you!!! I want to be with you! I very much want that everything in our meeting and a our lifes was wonderful and very good. And your words make me more bravely, more safely. I feel your support and it is very pleasant. Thank you Todd that you such remarkable, very gentle and careful. I feel that I have made a correct choice. I'm thinking about you every time.
Yours gentle Olga
