Letter 2

It's Svetlana. I am happy to receive your letter and to begin communication with you. I'll be glad if you send me your photo. How are you? I hope that you are ok! I feel well and i'm writing you with pleasure, i like to communicate with people. I think that you ask yourself why i decided to write you, may be because i'm disapointed by men here. I have heard about people who found their happiness far from the place where they live. I want to find a man for serious relations.
I want to create a good and strong family. That's why i decided to try, i don't know what it gives me in future. I have never been married and i don't have children. Frankly speaking i am novic at this kind of communication. I would like to tell you about myself. I was born 12 June 1981. I live in the city Pushkino, in Moscow region, not far from Moscow. My height is 178 cm, my weight is 55 kg. I am not sure how much it is in inches and pounds but i hope you'll understand me. I work as a nurse in the hospital. I like my work. I'm happy when people recover. I help them to recover, to feel better. Do you know how it's wonderful to understand that you help people? Sometimes when i have a bad humour, i come to work, help patients and humour becomes better. Now i want to tell about the place i live. I live alone in one-room flat not far from the center of the town. I don't know if you have heard about my town. As for me I like it very much, it's very nice but i'm sad that i have not met a good man here. I like to walk around the town in my free time or go to the cinema. Sometimes i walk in the parc or go to the cafe. I also like to read books, especially i like russian poetry. And i also read detective stories. Please tell me about your favourite sports. I go in for sports but unfortunately i don't have enough time for it. Usually i go in the swimming pool or play volleyball or tennis. Do you like picnics in open air? As for me i like it very much. I prefer active lifestyle. I am very gay and frank. I like just, kind and sencere people. Well, tell me more about yourself, i would like to learn more about the place you live. Please, tell me what you do for fun, what are your favourite entertainments.
Tell me everything about yourself. I want to know more about you because knowing each other better we can become closer to each other.
You may ask me everything you wish. I finish my letter here and will wait for your reply.

Your new friend Svetlana.

Letter 3

Thank you for your letter, i'm happy to receive it. How are you? I'm fine. Well, i would like to tell you about my job. I work in the hospital, in the therapeutic department. As i wrote you, i work as a nurse, i like to help people and it helps me to feel a bit independent. I can't say that my job gives me much money but it's enough for living. Living in Russia isn't good and it's difficult to do it there. I think that it's because of bad economics, in some parts of the country the level of life is high and in another parts it's very low.
I think you want to know from what place i am writing you. I do it from my work, it's very convenient for me, of course i have a coputer and modem at home but my computer is broken now and it will be repaired in 3 weeks. I know English rather well, i learnt it in the institute. I like languages and would like more of them. I will try to write my letters that you could understand me. As for me, i understand your letters very well. Well, i began to speak about the working day and i want you to tell me more about your working day, it will be wonderful to learn more about you. My working day is usual. I get up at 6.30, take a shower, then make breakfast and gather my things to go at work. I take a public transportation to get to my work. And i'm at work at about 7.30. Till 6 p.m i'm at work. After it i go home, have supper. In the evening i do some works about the house or visit my friends. You can see that i have an ordinary working day. What is the weather like in the place you live? As for the weather in our country it's very different. It can be very warm and cold. But i think you don't have so cold days as we have. It'll be interesting for me to know more about the place you live. If you are not against, i would like to tell you about men here. I don't know what happens with men here but i know exactly that they drink a lot and can't consider women in the right way. I don't have a boyfriend now. I had some relations with men but it wasn't long and serious. Then i had a man with whom i was six months. At the beginning he was offering me different gifts, i had everythig: flowers and chocolates every day. It seemed to me that i was the happiest woman in the world. But then when i learnt him better, i understood that he wasn't a man with whom i wanted to spend my life and to build a family. He deceived me, was unfaithful to me with my friend. It was 3 years ago and i don't want to remember it.
Excuse me but i don't want you to ask me about it. I write only you and hope that you too. We should be very sencere to each other if we want to have serious relations. Some time ago, my friend and i went to have a rest abroad. We traveled in Turkey. I liked this place, there i saw a new culture, another people and i was impressed by everything in this country. We were getting sun-tant, swimming in the sea, it was wonderful! What is your favourite film? I like "The city of angels" but my favourite film is "Brave Heart", i also like "Avatar". I like to go to the cinema. Do you like to go to the cinema? As for music, i can listen to classic and sometimes popular music or rock, i also like romantic music. And what's about you? Can you tell me about your favourite dish? As for me, i prefer pancakes. I like russian dishes, do you know some of them? I also like salads, ice-cream and pizza. I finish here. I hope to receive your letter soon and i'll answer you with pleasure.

Your Svetlana.

Letter 4

Hello, my dear .
How are you? I'm happy to have your new letter. Every day we begin to learn more about each other and it's interesting and wonderful for me, i like your e-mails. These days i'm bored a little bit, there are no joyful things around me and your e-mail is like the ray of the sun for me now. Your letters help me gradually to understand you as a person.
I want to tell you more about myself. I am a very impressionable person, i don't like when somebody cries at me, i can't stand it. When i am sad i try to be closer to my friends, by this way i raise my humour. I try to be aware of news that happens in the world. I don't like cloudy weather, i become sad and melancholy because of it. I prefer sunny days and the blue sky, grass and flowers. I adore to be in picturesque places, walk barefoot on grass. I like to swim on boat, swim and get brown. I also like to sit near the bonfire under the evening sky full of stars in the circle of my friends. Of course i prefer active lifestyle. I write only you and i hope you too. We should be extremely sincere to each other if we want to find serious relations. My town is not big. I like my town very much but i can't understand why i didn't manage to meet a man who could really love me and with whom i could spend my life. I am looking for a man for long relations but without success. In my country men can't understand women in different ways and it makes me sad that's why i am looking a person through the internet. I have heard about many happy people who found each other through the internet and i hope to become one of them. I think that letters will help us to learn more about each other and one day we can meet. I hope that we'll make our dreams real. I live alone but i think it's not good, every person must find his/her love. I am sure that we'll find it. I finish here and will wait for your letter. Please write me as you can. I will wait for your letter with impatience.

Sincerely yours,Svetlana.

Letter 5

Hello my dear .
Thank you very much for your letter, you can't imagine how i'm happy to have it. We communicate with you not so long but i feel that you are becoming closer to me. And I begin to wait for your letters. I want to communicate with you in any time and more often that's why i want to give you my telephone number +7925658932 that you can phone me and we can speak with each other and i could hear your voice. Do you like this idea? Now i'll wait for your call. I want our communication to be continued and i would like to know you as close as it's possible. I want to know everything about you. What do you like and dislike? I like people that can take care of me and help me in difficult situations. I like clever, kind and honest people. I value good relations and hate rude and angry persons. I like animals, especially cats and dogs. I do not like lie and when someone is lying.
I hate people who do bad to my family. I do not like when I am used in personal gain, I do not like when I'm forced to do what I do not like.
Well i should say that i like you because you are so kind and very attentive with me. Do you have a lot of friends that you can trust fully? I have a lot of acquaintances but few real friends. I can believe only them and tell about my secrets. I want to tell you about my family. I have never written you about my family because it's very painful for me. Before i lived in the town Grozniy, in Chechenskaya Republic. You have probably heard about this town, it's difficult to remember about that time but our relations should be sinere. I must tell you about it, although it's not easy for me.It was in 1997. My house was attacked by bandits and they killed my mom and dad when I was 16 years old. I really lost my parents early. Then there was the war. And gunmen killed civilians for the fact they helped Russian soldiers. They frightened people in such way. And they came to my house. After that I could not live there anymore. I think it was a miracle that I was able to hide and I was not killed. In our house there was a storeroom where I hid. Bandits killed my parents and went away. When I left my shelter I saw my parents. I was hysterical. When I was able to calm down, I went to my aunt in Pushkin, she died 3 years ago. My aunt had a heart attack, doctors were unable to help her and she died. I am so grateful that she helped me to get an education.
Otherwise, I could not pay for apartment and I would not have enough money to stay. And of course I'm grateful to my parents who helped me to come into this world. It's so awful that I have no brothers or sisters. It would be easier for me if I had brothers or sisters. And now I'm alone. I have no relatives. So i found myself in Pushkino. I am very glad that I met you. I've never met a man like you before. As i wrote you earlier men don't value women here, they are rude and they are not interested in real love. My last man offended me very much. He was unfaithful to me and asked me to take a credit wich he didn't want to pay. I hope that all my failures will finish and i'll find a good man with whom i'll have a real family. May be it's you, mear , i finish here and will wait for your reply.
Sincerely yours Svetlana.

Also at weekends i like to go for a walk in the parc. I like to do it very much. I also like to go to the cinema. But sometimes i stay at home in front of TV. What channels do you like to watch? I like to watch cognitive channels like "Discovery" or "Animal Planet". I like historical channels too. I would like to ask you about your character.
Tell me how your friends and relatives would characterize you. Only don't write yourself. I want your friends or relatives to answer it.
As for me my friends characterized me like this: kind, Soft (but not always), sometimes a little silly, but usually enough smart, loving, romantic, honest, and I expect it from others, open, dreamy, carful. I hope that you will love me like that. I hope we'll know each other better through each letter. I would liko to walk with you on the beach in future. I love the sun, water and sand. May be?
