Letter(s) from Anastasia Yelnikova to Gene (USA)

Letter 1

Hello Gene! How are you?!

Thank you for your letter and for your nice photos. Thank you for this chance to open my heart to you and to try to win yours! In my first letter I didn't know where to start. This time I want to tell you about everything. There are so many things and thoughts I want to share with you. I want to tell you about my life, my background, my hopes for the future of course. I want to stay totally open and sincere in order to show you how serious I am about our possible future.

You wrote me about your age. hm, I am looking for a serious and reliable man with strong and confident character. The man with whom I want to create my family. I think the boys in young age hasn't this quantities. I am right?

Ok. Here I am.I am 34 years old. As you know I'm Nastya. I've never been married, no children. I'm from village Kirovo Donetsk region. If you ask my friends to say one word about me, they will definitely describe me as a "sensitive" girl. I take everything to heart. My friends' joy and sorrow are always mine. I'm a very sympathetic person. I'm able to encourage people and I'm always inspired myself.
At the moment you are my inspiration, our newborn relations inspire me.

I came to Kirovo, when I was 17 immediately after graduation of the cooking school. I work as a cook in a small restaurant. As for my family, unfortunately my father died, when I was 16. My mother hasn't recovered yet after she lost her beloved husband. My father was a real provider for our family. He was a very gifted engineer. My father was the wise head in a small engineering company, where my mother worked as well. After my father died, the company broke down. My mother lost her job as well. So, I had to become grown-up very quickly, especially because I needed to take care of my younger sister. That's how I decided to become a cook. This profession was relatively fast to achieve and it has many stages. Firstly I worked as a waitress, then I peeled and cut vegetables. Then I helped cooks, and only then I was rewarded to become a cook myself.

As you can see, I'm not ugly. I can cook well, it is very good for family life. I'm sensitive and loving. Too good to be true, yeah? But I'm not perfect, I have weaknesses as everyone has. I like to sleep, I like to spend my free time on the beach, I like to do nothing sometimes. And I don't know English. It is a pity. I just don't want this to be an obstacle. I've found an Internet Cafe where I can use a computer. In their price list I found an additional service for translation. I decided why not. Why do I have to limit myself to communication with a Russian speaking man only? I pay for my letters to be translated for you and vice-versa.

For me to build successful and long-term relations means to build TRUST between a man and a woman. Trust in family life means no less than love. It is hard to believe that you can be happy with a person that you only like physically. We are miles away from each other.
There are millions of questions in our heads about each other. You definitely ask yourself "Is she honest with me?". I write this and ask myself "Is he sincere in what he writes me?". Our communication is the only one way how we can earn each other's trust.

I didn't try to write a long letter intentionally. I'm afraid you are feeling tired after reading everything I wanted to tell you. I just want you to know the person I am as well as I want to know what person you are. Communication will help us to build trust, to answer all questions we may have for each other.

If my life position correlates with yours, please write me back. I really like you. I want more, I want more between us.

Your sensitive girl, Nastya.

Letter 2

How are you, my dear Gene!

Gene, it was so great to get your new letter again. The more we communicate the more I'm falling in love with you. Our letters help me to get sure that we are two like-minded persons. Love and partnership in a marriage mean the same for us both. Yes? It is really good, I'm happy to realize that I have made the right choice with you. I only hope that you feel something similar to me. Please don't hide your feelings, always tell me what you feel when you read my letters and imagine us together in the future. I wrote you that I don't care at your age and it is ok for me.

I had bad experience too because all men here not serious to me and they want only money, sex and nude photos. I am serious and of course I don't like it at all.

As you know I live in village Kirovo in Donetsk region. Originally I'm from the Eastern part of Ukraine, my mother and my sister are still living there in a small town. My Mom is calling me every evening and we are very close to each other.

My feelings for you can't be compared with anything. You are definitely stealing my heart!! I hope you don't mind that I told my mother about us. This is the first time in my life, when I communicate with a man from another country. My Mom was very excited to get to know about you and how we started our communication. By the way, my Mom sends her best regards to you! She thanks you for your dedication to our correspondence. My mother thinks that it is a good idea for me to find a man from abroad.

As you know, my parents were living in complete understanding and unconditional love for each other. They had a very harmonious marriage. Me and my Mom think that there are no any men in present Ukraine, who could be compared with my father. He was a real hero and gentlemen. Such men don't exist in Ukrainian society anymore. It is a pity on the one hand, but it is our luck because this is the reason why I decided to look for a partner abroad. Do you understand what I am trying to say here?

Don't worry, my mother doesn't mind me to relocate to your country, if we succeed to build mutual understanding between us. I asked my Mom would she be happy if I go to another country? She say she would be happy if I am happy no matter where I live. It is good, I will always know that my personal happiness will make my mother happy as well.

Of course my mother worries how we will communicate in the future if I don't speak any foreign languages now. I tried to reassure my mother by telling her about my plan. I think that the best option for us is to let someone to continue translating our letters from my side. I'm planning to start learning English in the nearest future. I hope I will progress with my English quickly, but of course it will take time until I will be able to communicate with you without any help. If we are both patient, everything will be fine. Do you agree with me?

I have to go for now. I will be waiting for a new letter from you. We both, me and my Mom, send you our best wishes. I don't feel lonely anymore because there is a wonderful man in my life. You are this man.

Your Nastya with love..

Letter 3

Hi Gene!!! How are you today?

Thank you for your letter.I wrote you my name is Nastya.You've made my day with your letter. I am definitely hooked on your letters in the finest sense of the word. Before I met you, my daily routine didn't have anything special or interesting, it was so boring. You've brought so much joy to my life. Thank you. You come to accept goods things in your life for granted all too soon. I got used to receive your letters so fast. I can't imagine my life without you, without our communication anymore.

Sometimes I feel so scared about losing our connection. I know we both like each other, our mutual attraction becomes stronger with every letter we write each other. Am I right? You feel the same, right?

People always tell about love from the first sight. So what about love from the first letter? Does it exist? How do you think? Have you ever fallen in love from the first sight? Have you ever fallen in love from the first word or sentence or paragraph or letter? Is it true that it can happen even to a person who didn't believe in it before? I feel it has happen to me. I depend on you, on your letters. I used to like sweets very much. I couldn't live a day without a candy or something sweet. Now I don't care about sweets anymore. I need you, I want your letters only. I even don't remember have I eaten something sweet today or not. I just don't care about such senseless things anymore. You are my big candy and I want to eat you every day of my life.

I told you about my fear to lose you. I know what you write in your letters only because there is a person in Internet Cafe who translates your letters for me and then my letters for you. It isn't that cheap of course, but I know it works, we understand each other.

First I tried to translate my letter in Russian into English with the help of an electronic translator. I received an English version of my letter. Then I translated it back into Russian with the help of the same electronic translator. What would you think I received? I got two completely different Russian texts. And moreover, the last Russian version of my letter didn't have anything in common with my original letter. This experiment only proved me that electronic translators don't work in such cases as private correspondence.

I don't want to have any misunderstandings between us because of some electronic translators. It is rather expensive for me to pay for our letters to be translated. But I know it works, we understand each other. I don't want to take any risks with electronic translators.
Next week I will get my monthly pay. I hope it will be as usual. I will pay my bills and rent first, and luckily I will have left enough for our letters. Sorry for making you bored with all this stuff. It's just a part of our relations, I wanted to share it with you.

I hope you will have a nice day. You can share anything you want with me too. I'm here to listen to you, to be a partner you've never had. I will support and encourage you no matter what.

Be a good boy, you are always in my thoughts.

Your Nastya with love.

Hello my dear Gene! How is your day? And mood?

It is a real pleasure for me to receive your new letter. I am definitely into you! You have my full attention! I feel we have already established a deep connection between us. Thank you for being so dedicated to our communication.

I understand you it is very difficult to belive person who to find in Internet. I know many people use the Internet,need a friend or just to scam people,using other photos, models photos etc..then asking for money for passports,tickets and they are not even that person. But I don't want to waste my time I am looking for serious relationships.I think you understand me. I wrote you many times that your age is ok for me. How much you will ask it again???????????My name is Anastasiya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I am not clown to make you photo with newspaper!!!!!!!!!!!!! I send you the copy of my Ukrainian passport and you will see that I am real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Did I ask you any money?????????????? Whu do you think that I am bad??????????????

I've never felt anything like this before. You are always there for me no matter what. And I don't know what I would do without you...I'm thirsty about your letter, about your dreams and wishes... I want to be the lady, your lady, who can make your wishes and dreams come true...I want to gently touch your face, learning every contour, I want so much to be with you, I want to be in your hands and feel so happy as a beloved woman...

As you already know, I'm loving and even empathetic. My mother and my sister are two people whom I really love and care about at the moment.
I feel it is not enough for my heart. It needs more, my heart is full of unshared love. I need a man to love, to care of and to share my life with. I'm ready to dedicate myself to another human being.

Due to my work I meet different people from different places. I've come to the conclusion that Ukrainian men have no idea how to treat ladies, what women really deserve. There were so many cases when men-clients could hit me just because they didn't like the color of the plate for example. Luckily I'm not a waitress at the moment, I work at the kitchen. I don't deal with our clients directly. But I still remember all awful situations I had being a waitress. Also I see how our young waitresses still suffer from some rude Ukrainian clients. That's why I want a man from abroad. All foreign men who came to the cafe where I work were always real gentlemen.

I don't have any doubts that it was an absolutely right decision to start our communication, even in spite of I don't speak English myself and I pay for our letters to be translated. When I got the idea to find a man abroad I thought it would be better to learn English first and only then to find a man. I can imagine how many months or even years I could lose, I could lose you. We could never meet. It makes me feel creepy all over when I think we could take different roads. I'm happy I have you, I have a double goal. Firstly I want to build long-term relations with you, and of course I want to learn English to be able to communicate with you. I will try to continue to pay for our letters as long as I will be able and hopefully one day in the future I will be able to understand you myself.

Looking forward for your letter.

Kiss you.


Letter 5

Hi my candy-man Gene!

Thank you for constantly writing me. You always make me happy with your letters, with your attention. It is so important and pleasant for me when you display unceasing concern about my life in your letters.
You have already become an important and essential part of my life. No matter what I do I always think of you, I care of you, I wonder what you are doing at this very moment. Thank you for being with me, for having found me, for staying with me no matter what, for planning our future together.

In one of my previous letters I wrote you that I was waiting for my monthly pay to be able to pay for my rent, bills and our correspondence to be translated. Luckily I received it, unfortunately it wasn't as big as I hoped. I thought my monthly salary would be enough for everything I had planned. But unfortunately the prices in my country are not the same as before. As you heart now my country has a lot of problems with economy and now the cost on everything is more higher as before.Now the prices becomes more higher about 50 and my salary is enough only to buy some food for month to me. It is because the war in my country and I hope that when it will end the situation will be more better with economy here. But it will be very difficult to survive here with a is very hard to live here on such small amount of money and it is problem for all people here. If I don't pay my bills and my rent I will be homeless. If I don't pay for our correspondence to be translated I will lose our connection. I don't want to make this choice, it is just impossible to lose you. Excuse me for being so open with you in this letter. It is my problem and I'm really upset because of my working situation. It is just so unfair that our future depends on money problems. You are not only the man I have fallen in love with, you are also my close friend. That is why I have shared my thoughts with you. I will probably go for now. I hope you are doing better than me. I don't know how I will pay for our next letters to be translated, but I will come to Internet Cafe to check on your letters. Stay safe, know you are always in my heart.

Your loving Nastya

Letter 6

Hello, my dear Gene!!!

I thank you for your sympathy and understanding as for the present situation with my problem.In my area haven't any better job, sorry.You have a very good house!I had many troubles and problems in my life.
But the situation I'm facing at the moment is really difficult. I don't want to lose you,I don't want to be hungry I don't want to lose my room where I live. I want to save all this. I know it seems like a mess right now, but I hope that everything will settle down somehow.

I think the goggle translator isn't way out of this situation. The on-line translators can't good translate. They translate only words but they don't translate sense in my letter. I try but it is some wards without any sense. We don't understand each other. I don't understand what you mean in your letter and you don't understand me. I don't want any misunderstanding between us. I think it better to pay for our correspondence but we understand each other. What do you think?

I know that you appreciate what I have done for us, for our communication and for our future. I really need you in my life and I would do even more if it would be needed. I'm a strong person and I used to face difficulties. But at the same time I will accept your help if you decide to help me with something. The same way I will always try to help you if you need my help. I don't want to choose between our communication, my food and my home. Our correspondence is the priority number one for me. I think we both need to continue our communication because there are so many things that we need to discuss. Our future is in our hands. How will we agree about our meeting if we can't exchange letters anymore? Just think about us and what we could build together. Just think about what you could do for us to let us keep our correspondence. If there is something you could do to help us to continue our communication, I will not refuse your help. I just don't have another choice. It is just impossible for me to pay for our letters to be translated at the moment. It will not offend me if you propose me your help with this situation. I appreciate your understanding and how much you care of me and our future.

Always yours Nastya
