Letter(s) from Julia to Olav (Netherlands)

Letter 1

Hello!
I am writing to you, because you were recommended by my friend with whom we used to go to the same parties to meet foreign men. And now we share some information between ourselves, so she gave me your e-mail address. She might have written to you before or may be wanted to write to you, but never got around doing that. Anyhow, I would love to get to know you better, because I am very serious about finding the right person for long time relationship and possibly marriage, however there are a couple of small problems, that need to be addressed before we start our correspondence. First of all I am a big girl, about 6 feet tall and if having tall girl at your side doesn't intimidate you, we can try writing each other. And second of all, that I am going to need money to attend the internet cafe and stay in touch with you. I am going to be straight with you and say I do not want to get into doing something unless I am completely sure that it's going somewhere. I need to be sure of your intentions, well because I've been burnt before, starting long correspondence, that turned out to be waste time and money. And I simply can not afford to do that being between jobs. So if you send me at least $20, because there is no sense for me to make a trip to a bank for smaller amount of money we can start our correspondence. And by doing this you'll not only show the seriousness of your intentions, but also give me a chance to write to you. Sorry if I disappointed you, but that's reality of things and I want to be completely honest with you. You do not have to answer if you do not like me or what I have to offer.
Best wishes Julia
