I want to get acquainted with the foreigner as my friend has told to me about the girl who has managed to find the happiness. She has met the good person with the help of the Internet. Her friend, Gregory, has arrived from Canada. They are very happy together. This girl has found the person whom she always required. They trust and like each other!!! So the Internet has helped two hearts to be united together. But it is true!! Well, I have decided to try my success also, and I hope, that I shall not lose! I assume, what you want to know, why I cannot find the friend in my own city, in Russia? It - rather difficult question. But the answer is simple - I would like to see about me the person whom it will be valid to love me, to care of me, think highly, and respect me. Unfortunately, I never met such person in my city. The Russian men drink much and Russian men very rough do not respect the woman … and do not appreciate the women. Well, I assume, what you probably want to know something more about me? My name is - NADEZHDA, and surname PATRUSHEVA. I - from SAMARA (Russia). To me of 28 years. And how you completely call? I have no neither the husband, nor children. As to my education - I diplomaed the State university and got a trade of the commercial manager. I wanted to work for the big trading company where I had practice at studying at university. But there were no vacancies. At the same time since my early childhood I dreamed to begin the teacher at school. I love children very much, but, you know, that it is too difficult in Russia today to find a workplace!!! And if you are able to find a workplace at school, earnings extremely low. One of my girlfriends, Helena, is the school teacher so I know all about it well. I studied the English language. How you find my English language? - there any mistakes? As to me I assume, that my English language … it will be not bad. It is good, what you want to know about me? Whether can be about my free time? I strongly like to prepare!!! It to me well turns out. I love sports. I am engaged in gymnastics. Tell to me, please cookery what country, what you prefer? I hope, what you love Russian kitchen? And what - your favourite dishes?

Moscow - the expensive city, I am confident, that you already heard about it. As far my father he lives in Nizhnivartowsk, in Siberia. He is a teacher of the English language at school, and I shall tell it for him, I know the English language - he was my first teacher. He once even was in London with group of pupils, and I still remember color books for children with letters from ABC which he has bought for me in London!! Unfortunately my parents once have understood, that they do not like each other more and resolute to release each other. And we have left Nizhnivartowsk for SAMARA. That time I was the 9-years girl. About, I have completely overlooked to speak you that the girl who got acquainted with foreign, Gregory with the help of the Internet. You remember, what I have told to you about it in my previous letter? The matter is that one of my friends has told to me, that he has arrived to our city!! You can imagine it?!! As, appear, was Gregory, has already invited her to his place, and they married there. And now they have arrived to our city to visit her relatives. They are so happy together!! Now they plan to have children!! They speak, that they never thought, that they can find love and a happy life with the help of the Internet more in the foreign country - but the God knew, that they have been created for each other and have helped them to join their hearts! It - an amazing history, whether not so?! To tell the truth, I envy this girl so much … I for a long time to be happy also!

Greetings my dear Renato! I am happy that you have written to me the letter!! Your messages became the important part of me!!! I always wait your Electronic mail. From them I learn about you more and more. It is so important for us Renato, for our friendship!! And you as think? You know, I constantly think of this girl who has found her beloved husband with the help of the Internet. You remember, what I have told to you about it in my previous letters? I think, what success she!! She is so happy with Gregory!! He - very kind and sensitive the man. He is not similar to our Russian men. He does not drink and smokes in general. He is a good husband and always cares of her. Now they have new very much incorporated family. To tell the truth, I envy her with all my heart!! I want to meet the good person and to be happy also!! But since my last unsuccessful history of love I am afraid to trust in love. The matter is that my last love has ended with tragedy. Let me to share my drama of love with you. I think that we are close to each other enough. I can trust you? When I have left school, I have arrived to study in Zelenograg the State university which is located about Moscow. Zelenograg - remarkable historical city. There are many various sights. I really liked to live and study there. This city is known for the universities and my parents, and the grandmother did not want, that I was badly It has been formed. I well studied. I became the first student of year. Once I have met very beautiful boy. Him called was Dima. he was the friend of one of my girlfriends. We carried spent a lot of time together at university. I studied on the third rate, and he was the first student of year, it is more on we lived in one hostel. And once we have understood, that we have fallen in love with each other. So we met till now. We were young and full of feelings - we liked each other with passion and were going to marry. I carried spent each holiday in my house, in my native city SAMARA. Within these days we very much missed the friend the friend. So the whole year has left, and I did not dream at all of other destiny - I wanted to be only with this boy. I remember one day, we have left. The reason was simple a little, but any of us did not want to go on the compromise. And that day something awful happened in my life. Dima started to drink Vodka and then the beginnings of me to beat on the person. Certainly he has told, that it was the first and last time when and unfortunately I have made the big mistake and trusted him. I thought, that he loved me, but I completely overlook. Some time later certainly, all happened again and again and again and each time more severe. Also has passed 9 months as we have left him. I now do not regret about it. I now do not want Russian the man. They always rough and drink much. They cannot trust. And now I hope to find foreign the man to which it is possible to trust. So, that can, I add, I was sure, that I shall not be capable to love again, my life has stopped …, about now I I do not want to bring all this back part. I believe, that I meet the man which will help me to trust in love again. Thanks for your sympathy. Trust me, it is important for me. Unfortunately I should finish the letter. Today - very much borrowed day!! I yesterday have told mine mum and to the brother about you and our friendship. My mum was happy, that I have managed to find such good person as you!!! I transfer you greetings from them!! And desire you all the best!! It is a lot of kisses for you!!! Up to tomorrow, Nadezhda!!!

My sweet love
All I have
Are thoughts of you.

Visions of
Your smiling face.
Whispering through
the wind, I hear
Your sweet laughter
In my ear.
I take a breath
Of cool, fresh air
I could smell
You right there.
I opened my eyes
And tried to wake
Am I daydreaming?
I have to think.
So here we go
One more time
Thinking of my love
That's so divine.
So if sweet dreams
Is all I can do
Always these dreams
Will be of you.
Why do I have to love you?
Why do I have to care?
I can't help myself! I love you, it's true!
Why can't everything be great? It's just not fair!

You know, my life is not so interesting, from work - to the house, from a house to work, both again, and again, day after day … But now when you have appeared in my life, become an inseparable part of it. You remember, I have told to you once my sad history of love? So, after it I was afraid to fall in love. Besides I never met the person with whom I could fall in love. You know, I have told to you about the Russian men. Now I am not afraid. But now I have fallen in love with you when I have met you!!! Now I speak you with confidence, that I cannot be without you more!!! I was afraid to write to you these words about my feelings. Certainly I thought of your possible answer.

I want to tell to you, that I do not write any to another to the man except for you. I do not want another the man because I love you!!! But except for that I do not want, that other woman has stolen you from me. I speak it to you very seriously. It will be so pity to me if you have or write to other woman. If you deceive me in our relations better at once tell to me about it. I shall understand all and I shall cease to write to you. We should trust each other. Certainly, if the God listens to me, and we - together, I shall be compelled to leave my work, relatives, friends and the whole former life. Certainly, it is not so good, but my love to you is much more important for me than my work to trust me!! All my warm kisses, Warm embraces, Your lady and the beloved woman, Nadezhda
