Letter 1

Hi my dear stranger Justin!

I have more recently learned to work on the Internet and have casually gone on a site where has found your profile. I very modest girl, but I nevertheless have dared to write to you as I think that communication with the person from other country is very unusual! I never communicated with people from other countries and I simply dream to find in your person of the friend with whom it is simply interesting to communicate and share news! You the first to whom I write and I hope, that our correspondence will have the good beginning! Now I sit in Internet - cafe and I write to you this letter! I think, that time has come to get acquainted! My name is Olga. I from Russia, live in the city Jaransk. I'm 25 years old. My growth 175 Centimeters. My Birthday is March,8. Nationalities I am Russian. My religion: the Christian. On character I the sanguine person: very cheerful, kind, vigorous and in a measure modest. I easily find common language with strangers and simply I like to communicate on interesting themes! My job: the teacher of biology. I work at school and I'm teaching children of biology about plants and animals. I very much love animals. When I was a child, I studied at musical school during 4 years where I learned playing on a piano. I was the winner of many festivals and competitions on music. All spoke about me as about talented the pupil. But I am engaged in playing on a piano just a little now, but frequently I sing in karaoke and always I get the highest results! When I have free time i like walk in the parks which are a lot of in my town. I am absorbed in books as well. Pushkin, Esenin are the great poets deserving to be read by everyone. I take pleasure in reading poems about which I can tell a bit more. In my 16-17 I delighted visiting my granny and grandpa in the small city of Zelenograd in 50 km from Moscow in Russia. They reside in a small house but have a big orchard. This is an astonishing place like paradise especially it is beautiful in spring and summer when there flower apple-trees, cherry-trees and apricots. I rollick in waking up early in the morning and listening to birds singing and looking at trees aflower. It is a beautiful nature like nothing else on earth. It is gorgeous and marvelous in coloring. A trifle later our orchard treated us with fruits tasting deliciously. I still remember this flavor. Closing my eyes I see the picture of my orchard. My grandpa comes to my mind catching fish on the lake and we waited for him with impatience. Granny cooked a very tasteful fish soup. What is more? My granny had small goats. She milked them and gave me fresh milk. In evenings I with my friends, get together to read poems. Oh! I am just lost in warm memories of my childhood. I think one can write about them endlessly. It is much pleasant for me to correspond with you about my memories. All this takes me deeply. I enjoy swimming and from time to time I attend swimming-pool. I like going on foot. Active life is generally my cup of tea. I can write about it long and long. If you take some interest in this point of my life, I will talk to you about it in my next letters. I hope, that my letter was pleasant to you! I too wait from you for interesting letters! I hope, we shall soon make friendship and we become the best friends!

With hope your Olga

Letter 4

Hello my Dear Justin!

Today we have rainy weather. It always gives me a condition to think a little of my life. I still have no any partner for my life while all my girlfriends have already found husbands and live happily with them. Probably I simply missed my time because at that time when my girlfriends searched for acquaintances, I gave all my time to study and work. Just now I began to reflect on my future and that I should find my second half. I tried to search for the partner here, but I did not find anybody. My girlfriends are surprised, that I could not find anybody here:) I am probably too exacting, and I wait for prince on a white horse... Anyhow my relations were never for a long time. I was always irritated guys who care only of itself and about the work. It will be ideal for me if the guy would consider me as a queen! Then he would be my king and would receive all my attention, tenderness, caress and love to him! Probably I have some too overestimated ideals but if to understand, it is so natural, if the guy respects the girl. I do not know... Tell to me your ideas. What relations should be between the guy and the girl?
I was always met with men which is a little bit more senior than me. I believe, that the age should associate not with an old age, but with wisdom and experience.

I shall try to answer your questions:
*1.) How important is your family to you?
I have mum and the daddy, they I live together and are very happy. Mine the daddy works in a civil engineering firm, and mum the housewife. Earlier I lived with parents. But now I remove an apartment and I live independently. I have my own life and consequently to me to live separately from parents more conveniently. I very much frequently go on a visit to parents. We always have fine attitudes, parents very much love me and care of me. Here my aunt Rita lives in Estonia. She works in agency of travel, she very business and modern woman. My grandmother lives in Russia in city Zelenograd. My grandfather has died 5 years ago. I frequently go on a visit to the grandmother in Zelenograd. I have no any brothers and sisters. I one in family. My mum not against that I lived in other country. I discussed with her this theme. I spoke to my mum about you. I very much love my parents, the grandmother, the aunt. Will leave certainly them difficultly for me. But if I meet mine the man I with it I shall create my happy family. I think that my relatives will understand me as they wish me of good luck. Even if I shall leave from Estonia, I shall keep in contact with them and can be sometimes come to them on a visit.
*2.) And *3.) I have not understood questions.
*4.) How important is communication in a relationship to you? I would want someone who likes me for who I am not for what I may or may not have. Because material possessions can be here one day and gone the next. Someone who would never divorce me and I would never Divorce her. Someone who I would treat like a King and hopefully I would be his Queen.
someone Loyal, Honest and Truthful and I would expect all of that of myself in how I treated his as well.
Hopefully someone who does not Drink Alcohol or at least does not get Drunk as people do things they normally would not do when they are drunk.
Also hopefully someone who does not smoke.
*5.) Do you think you'll find a Knight on a white horse? I probably never shall find the knight, and which person I shall love also which me will like probably I search.
*6.) How well do you think our relationship is going so far, and why? Because you to me very much like also I to you probably too. I sometimes think, that we as 2 mirrors are very similar.

Well, I should go to my work now and consequently I finish this letter. I hope soon to speak with you again. You are in my mind.

Have a nice day!
Yours Olga.

Letter 5

Hello my Dear Justin!

I am very happy to have an opportunity of dialogue with you again! You really speak with me in your letters about many good themes and I feel myself as in a fairytail when I read it! I am very grateful to you for warm attitude to me and for pleasure of dialogue which you give me every day!
Always when I read your letters, I think you sitting near to me and speaking all these words:) Probably I have rich imagination! I can imagine all your gestures and all your emotions with which you state your ideas. It very much amuses me:)
I want to talk to you about my English. I studied it 6 years at school and then I studied it 2 years at university. But it was not my specialist subject, therefore I did not give due attention to this. Now when I try to recollect my English it is frequently necessary to take the dictionary and to check:)) I never dialogue with the person for which English language would be the native language, therefore I do not know as far as clearly I express. Tell me as far as you understand my words and as far as you would estimate my English?
Probably it can surprise you, that the girl having 2 native languages studies English:) it is valid, I speak on Estonian, on Russian and a little on English:) In that case here usually speak, that when the person incurs too much, he reminds the goose who is able to go, fly and float, but does not do anything well:))

Today I met with Anu and we spent some time. I told her, that I have got acquainted with very interesting person from other country and she spoke, that I probably a lunatic:) we laughed with her and she was very much pleased for me. She speaks you " Hello! ". It is very good when friends understand each other well. I and Anu are familiar since childhood and we understand each other very well. I very much trust her. Tell me about your friends? Probably such interesting person as you should have many interesting friends. I simply want, that you spoke them Hello! from me:)
Well, I shall finish this letter for today. Probably in the following letter I shall send you some pictures, therefore you should morally prepare:)) Write soon!

Yours Olga.

Hello dear Justin!!!

Pretty happy to get your answer. I'm fine. I'd like to tell you a bit of my first favorite hobby. I spoke you, that I am the biologist and I very much love the nature. I very much like to plant aquarian fishes also. My aquarium has a slanted glass in front that is very beautiful but at the same time arouses some difficulty to take care of it. Owing to the small width of the bottom you should work hard to create full landscape. The slanted wall had a beneficial influence on accumulating a big number of organic matters and starts being overgrown. I must brush up such an aquarium oftener. Any aquarium with decorative fish certainly forms its own world. It is so much pleasant to look at it behind the glass after coming back home. It is like a part of the ocean or sea right at home. We try to breed various and unusual fish in the aquarium. Actually these fishes are of piranha family. They are called metinnises. Our aquarium is regarded as a freshwater type because freshwater fish and plants are the simplest beings as for keeping. Besides, this fish spawns easily in artificial environment. Ordinary metinnis is a fish of silver paint with gray-blue tint in combination with small spots. Their fins are transparent. The origin they were spawned was the Amazon. This fish length does not exceed 15-20 cm. They eat plankts. Though it is not a cheap amusement our aquarium is the memory of our father. Since his childhood father adored toy fish and was able to romp with them for hours. This is not just a simple enthusiasm. This is our love hobby of my family. The aquarium holds 450 liters of water. I may admire our underwater world long. It relieves the stress after work and just eye appeal. I am proud of our hobby - our aquarium. Are you fond of watching submarine world? Always watching my aquarium I dream of scuba diving. I love films of Kusto. I am absorbed in them. Drop me a line about your hobby.
Due to mine hobby I have similar dream. It is dream once to plunge into waters of ocean with an aqualung and to observe wildlife! I think it it should be so fascinating. It will be probable interestingly both to the person knowing the nature, and the ordinary person who simply appreciates beauty. It is really beautiful!!! You thought sometime of it? I think it it would be very interesting to make such walk together once:))) I only flirt:)
Well, now I finish this letter. I hope soon to receive the letter back from you!
You are in my opinion...
Your Olga.

Hello my Justin!!!

I hope you do not become angry if I already speak you "my":) I think you my friend and is very glad, that we are familiar. I am really happy to meet such special person as you in so fragile place as the Internet. I hope that we feeling are more strong it.
I think myself the person which really knows that he wants from a life. I very persistent person and I try to squeeze out everything from my life, that is possible!:) I really know what relations I wait from the partner now. It should relations which be as much as possible approached to idyll. This such condition relations when it is necessary to hide or to trust each other. Probably it only dream and it is impossible, but it should be the purpose for relations. The formality of wedding only approaches relations to this. I think, that I would like to leave in marriage. What do you think of it? What should be relations between the man and the woman?

On it I finish this letter. I hope to speak with you soon!
Yours Olga.
