Letter(s) from Natalia Kozhemyako to Alan (USA)

Letter 1

Hello, it is Natali:-) Young lonely Ukrainian woman. I like romantic moments with candlelight, tasty food. A beautifully set table, a glass of red wine, friendly and intimate talk. I think what is important for me is that everyday-life, nothing spectacular, going to bed together, waking up together, just to feel that you are loved and have someone to give your love to. If you feel as if to be interested in knowing me better, write me at ..... I will wait for your mail, maybe we could be more then pen pals.My e-mail krasa81 at list.ru.

Thank you so much for your letter, Alan, and for your interest in me. I was very pleased to get it and now I reply on it with great pleasure. Alan, I must admit that your message sounded so much intrigued to me:-) I couldn't stand but reply it:-) I am Natalya Kozhemyako, but my friends call me with my short name Natali. I live in Lugansk, Ukraine. I live with my parents in our own house, also I have a younger brother. His name is Aleksey, and he is 19. He graduated school this year and enters the University too. My family gives us an upper education and we are very united in our family relations.

I've had a wonderful childhood growing up in the country side, in the village of my granny, it means that I was very close to nature and grew to appreciate all living creatures on earth. My parents made sure that my brother and me had a happy home, my parents were very much in love with each other and stayed that way all their lives. It means that there was much love in our home, lots of laughter and love and care from both my mother and father, I guess my childhood was the way it should be for every child and I want you to know that I want the same for my future husband and the children.

I'm 25 years old (I hate the way it sounds in English - "years old" - I am young), I was born August, 26, 1981. I graduated Lugansk Eastern Ukrainian University three years ago, but I work not accordingly my profession. I work as a consultant in the car saloon. I help people to register credits on the car buying. Sometimes, I dream to have my own car too:-) I can drive it, but do not have licence, as I can't afford myself to buy a car nowadays. Unfortunately, I've never been married (or may be I should say I was lucky) and I don't have any children. My friends told me that I have a quiet, serious, modest character, but no one of them knows that sometimes I can be very playful. I am responsive, caring, and I consider myself as an optimist. I keep my home cozy and clean. In my free time I like to read novels, especially love stories with a beautiful passionate love and the happy end. I like cooking (even more then eating, I guess) and my mom is proud of me - she is saying I was born cook. I like to travel, to visit interesting places and take pictures of them. I love music, nature - mountains, sea, flowers. I dream about romantics walks and candles lighted dinners. I appreciate mutual understanding, honesty, kindness, a sense of humor. I don't smoke, drink or use drugs.

Well, I understand that such a short letter is not enough to describe me even a little so please don't be shy to ask me different questions - I will certainly answer you sincerely with great pleasure. To be completely honest this is not the first letter I write to a man .... but I am hoping that this is the last man that I have to write letters too...... if any of this sounds like what you are looking for I can't wait to here from you !!!

Write me back if you would like to know me better,
Natali.

Letter 3

Hello .

I waited for your answer impatiently. Then this miracle happened. It is so wonderful that you decided to answer my letter. I hoped that my thoughts would be close to you, because from our first letters I was interested with you. I feel something special to you. I think that we have something in common, we have at least one aim:-) And so I waited for your reply every minute. It is very important to me, you know. I know that one day come when I open my eyes and can say that I am the happiest woman in the world and I hope that the man who would be near can tell the same.

I want you to know more about me, I want to know more about you. I want investigate your body and soul... then as for to my story from the childhood, I had lived in little place near Lugansk. And then my family had to go to Lugansk, I was very glad because to live with father and mother where ever they want is a great joy for me. I love my mom most of all. She is a woman with strong heart. She loves me and she devoted all her life to me. I appreciate it and now I try to help her as more as possible. And what about your childhood? I know that every child has a dream in his childhood. It is very interesting for me. Did you have a dream in your childhood and what it was? Could you tell me? There's one thing I'd like to confess. I don't know foreign languages, that's why I use the firm which translate your letters and mine and gives me the opportunity to correspond with you. Hope you don't mind. I do my best to keep in touch with you.

You asked me why I am still single. Please, just do not think that something is wrong with me:-) I do not have any bad habits, and I am psychically normal woman. It is our men, who are guilty in it. The matter is that the biggest half of them are drunker and do not like having family. As almost all of them are unable to earn for living because they do not like working and are afraid of responsibility:-) And the other half, who seem to be normal are already married:-)

Do you like your work? Once I heard such thought that happiness is when you get up in the morning and go to your work with a great pleasure and in the evening you go home with the same feeling of pleasure. And I think that it is true. And what about you? I miss real relations, I miss love and I miss tender, care and I hope that you feel the same. I will wait for your next letter with thoughts that you are the right man in my life. You can be my Miracle! I miss your letters.

Your Natali.

Letter 4

Hello Alan

I was very very happy today to receive your message. Even though it was short, I realized that you are caring of me, because you would rather write me several lines then keep silent, even though being tired or unable to write right now:-) Thank you so much for your writing me in spite of so many barriers between us:-) Finally, aren't we smart enough to overcome them?! I have had many positive thoughts when I receive your letter! Thank you once again for writing me, I was pleased to hear from you! To find one's half across the great vastness of cyberspace may seem to be a difficult task. Knowing that there is one person who might live and breathe a vitality into the world of love and support is indeed reason enough to live. Loving, sharing - with all of the passion that is contained within the word love - and yes having the ability to remain individuals - that's the real meaning of love.

"Good morning!" With a simple word I reach my hand across many miles to you. I reach out hoping that somehow my words will be separated from the hundreds of responses that you must obviously receive from others. I am hoping that somehow I can write words that will reach your soul - recognizing that what I wish is a partner - a man that can be my friend, soulmate and lover. A man that will permit me to be the same to Him. I liked your letter as you seemed to begin with the same thoughts/words that I have in my mind too. I too wish to find true love and using the Internet is a bit helps. I want to create a serious relationship based on trust, honesty and respect.

My photo has showed you my looks - you can then judge for yourself, but I can share with you that I am kind, affectionate and truly a "good woman" but that is something that only you can decide in time. Although, I am successful and confident in my work I know that my life does not revolve around my job. After all, there are many jobs in this world - but only one man who can truly be my half. I love to laugh and I feel I have a sense of humor that simply does not quit. I also enjoy music... for music is within my soul. Virtually every other type of music I love! In fact, it truly makes the world wonderful. Although I feel comfortable in almost any situation, I believe that you will find that I am a cosmopolitan woman. I simply enjoy the vitality that comes from attending concerts, cinemas, visiting friends or simply enjoying watching good film at home. I will admit to you that over the years I have experienced much throughout my life - both happiness and sadness. Both have made me into the confident woman that I am today. But something is missing from my life. I look for a tender, passionate and caring man that TRULY wants to care for another... to give all that he is, every day and without exception. I am a woman that believes in giving and receiving - both love and affection. I believe in enjoying life - yes! - but I believe in being serious and centered upon the love and support to one's family! Let us laugh, smile and be happy WHILE we are stable, sincere and loving! Can we do both? I am closing here, wishing you a great day and many positive thoughts. Waiting for your next letter. Natali.
