Letter(s) from Anna Sidorova to Rich (USA)

Letter 1

Hello my mystery!

With great interest and with the same timidity I am beginning this letter. It's my first experience when I am writing to somebody I know just a little about and can only imagine. Therefore I called you the "little mystery". But I hope that someday this mystery will turn to be reality. And in the meantime I have an opportunity to share with you my mystery. As you know, my name is Anna, I am 25 years old. I live in Odessa, Ukraine. I am not very tall, my height is 173 cm (5'7"), weight is 55 kg (125 lbs).

I like to believe I am intelligent, caring, affectionate, purposeful, honest, devoted, kind, tender, and romantic. I have never been married and have no children (though I really desire to have them with my right man). I wish to find a good man I will feel in complete safety with, I wish to start a family with him, and go along the life side by side with him. What I value in men is devotion, honesty, persistence, intelligence, charm of soul.

I enjoy outdoors, nature, reading, music, movies, pets. I like flowers, especially lilies of the valley, they are very tender and sweet. I like it when there are flowers at home. It really refreshes and cheers up.

Well, I will close for now, though there are many things I still wish to tell you, but I hope I am yet to have possibility to talk to you the next time. Take care dear Rich.

Sincerely,
Anna

Letter 2

Hello again dear Rich!

It was really great to hear from you again, thank you very much for your letter. I feel that you are an interesting person, with many views similar to mine. So I really have this desire to tell you more about myself.

First of all I have to tell you that my English is far from being fluent (I used to learn it but really have to refresh and improve my knowledge). In the meantime I use the service of translator in an agency, as well as e-mail sending service as I do not have my own computer.

I was born and grew up in a very friendly family, in the family where everything is built on understanding, trust, love. In such aura my parents have raised 2 children, me and my sister Natalia, who now works at the TV company. My mother Tatiyana, born in 1951, is an educator in the music school. I love my family very much, and I am thankful to them that they have cultivated this feeling in me.

Now I also aspire to creating my own family, in which consent and love will reign. In my life I want to meet a man I can rely on, together with whom I will feel myself in safety.

Now I live with my parents. Therefore I have a great deal of cares. And I always spend weekends in a different way. I do love to be closer to nature, far from a noisy city. In a summertime I enjoy the beach, and now, when the weather is colder, I like walking through the parks, along the boulevards. I meet with my female friends, we share our secrets, we go out, go to see movies. But sometimes I just feel like wrapping myself in a blanket and reading an interesting book.

I have diverse interests in literature. I like to read captivating love stories, also I like classical writers such as Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Lermontov. I love reading Ostrovsky's works. I enjoy listening to music, though I don't prefer any definite styles in it. Every style can be nice, it depends on mood.

I adore animals. At home (I mean at my parents') there is a cat. I took her when she was just a baby. She was like a down. She is growing and she appears to be very smart. I love her very much. I began to notice that when I am out for a long time, she misses me. Do you have a pet?

Actually dear Rich, I can tell a lot of things about everything I have in my life, but I am afraid that my letter will tire you (for it already looks long). Maybe I haven't told you about something you are interested to know, but I hope there will be opportunity to do it the next time.

And in the meantime I want to wish you a wonderful day and good spirits!

Sincerely,
Anna.

Letter 3

Hello dear Rich,

Thanks a lot for your letter, and I hope you feel better. And it was my pleasure to learn about you and your warmest thoughts about me, and you actually saw me in your dream! Wow! Did I captured your imagination? Funny, but I saw an interesting dream tonight as well, it was like I ended up in the castle with kind, but very reach woman and she was showing me ancient items, and I was surprised to how they lived then and for some time I felt that medieval atmosphere.

You asked me about the language. Unfortunately my English is very limited, especially for writing. In Odessa we speak Russian, but the national language is Ukrainian. And I agree with you, Russian consider as a very difficult language to learn.

Dear Rich I am going to tell you a little about myself and I hope it meets with your approval. First thing I do this with you in all honesty and sincerity.

I long for a happy family life based upon mutual love and mutual respect. I would like to find a soul mate to share my life with as fully as possible. I do believe that a man and a woman should share all things equally and treat each other this way too. I believe a man and a woman MUST also be best friends and be able to talk about any and all things, both bad and good.

I think that I have the makings of a decent, faithful, loving wife and a good and caring mother. I love children. I think my children would be very lucky, as they would have a very loving family environment and two loving and devoted parents.

Life is not always pleasant but I think it is far better to share life and all that it offers with a family that you love and respect.

I enjoy music, reading, swimming, aerobic and step aerobic. My favorite music is Rock'n'roll, Blues, and decent Pop. Music is the mirror to my soul. It helps me to relax. I have a very big library at home, about two thousands books (memoirs, history, classical literature, detective stories).

There are so many things I want to tell you, but I don't want you to get tired with the long letter. I would love to have a good idea of the person I talk to, so please write me about you in more details.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have concerning me. I'm looking forward to you reply dear Rich.

Sincerely,
Anna

Letter 4

Hello my dear Rich!

It was really pleasant for me to hear from you again, and same as you with great anticipation do I wait for the next letter. Though I still find it hard to believe that it is happening indeed, I mean that fact that we have met and are communicating at such a great distance, but the way you are expressing yourself shows me that you are close, and though I cannot really see your eyes, your body language, it seems to me that I am staring to feel you through your letter to me.

I am very thankful that you have appeared in my way of life, and I like to believe it is not a casual circumstance and we will meat and be together. I do believe that this year will bring happiness to me, because as I like to repeat everyone deserved happiness.

It was very interesting for me to read the part when you ask yourself to which community do you belong. And I have to say that we have much in common on that, since I do find pleasure from the art, and I do like to listen to music, and yes my favorite time is when I can lay on the sofa with book in my hands. I guess this comes from the times when I was a girl and could imagine all the action and descriptions mentioned in the book. I still remember when in 14 I was dreaming of the prince and how we will live in the castle. I have to say that lately I started to listen to some house (!) music, which usually you can hear at the disco. I like to stand in front of the mirror and dance. Maybe you could join me one day, who knows. I have to say that I like to read about other countries, but unfortunately its very expensive to travel and I cant afford it. :( So youre lucky on this regard.

Please, tell me howre you these days, how is work.

Well dear Rich, thats about what I wanted to tell you today dear. I am looking forward to hearing from you again. With all my heart I wish you a lucky day and good spirits.

With affection,
Anna

PS. Dear Rich I wanted to talk to you on an important, yet delicate subject. You know that I have to use the agency, and it costs me a pretty penny (considering my salary). Its very embarrassing for me to touch on this subject But if you really want to try to develop a serious relationship with me, and if it is possible for you, could you help me with the payment for our correspondence? I realize that its a bit surprising and it might sound queerly for you, but believe me this money would be not for me personally but for our communication to continue. Our communicating is very important to me and I like you very much, and I do hope its the beginning of something promising and wonderful.

Letter 5

Hello dear Rich,

I was looking forward to your reply and I was glad to receive your letter. I thank you for it. I liked it very much. I hope we shall always be sincere with each other, only if we are sincere, our correspondence may have a nice continuation, in your letter I found some special sincerity. Despite we live very far from each other - there is an ocean between us:-), but we seek simple human happiness, we don't want to be lonely, we want to find a person, who understands us, and it is very pleasant for me, it unites us. I have to say that from the time I met you I constantly think about coming to the agency and see if the letter from you waiting, so maybe that's why you have sent me two letters in a row! :)

I know that I'm half world apart from you. I don't care about the distance, maybe because I like to travel so much and see other parts of the world. Right now I hope we grow fonder of each other and wait patiently for the time when we see each other's eyes. Or maybe when we see each other you'll turn on your computer (bring it with you), and I'll run to the agency to write a letter? /smiling

I long to meet my soul-mate sooner or later, every and only to share my love and affection with, to be his faithful friend, reliable confident, passionate lover and help in everything. I'm a woman and I'm created for this to give myself away to someone very special.

Dear Rich, I wish to thank you for the willingness to help me with the payment for the correspondence, and please don't take me wrong I don't want that money for myself, but for the continuation of our communication. I do like you a lot, and maybe our Fate give us another chance. Ok. I'll ask Valentina Gordyna, a director of the agency to write you a letter, regarding their costs, and I'm sure she will do a better job, then myself.

I will close for now and will be looking forward to your next letter. Write me soon! And please take care yourself for me and I wish you to recover. If I was near you, I'll make you a cup of tea and cheer you up, so you laugh and smile, and this way drive away any illness. :)

With tenderness from
Anna.
