Hello Gavin.
I am happy, that you have again answered me. I am glad, that again I write to you. It is very interesting to me to read your letters, they allow to learn you better.
I was never married and I do not have children. I very much want to create the family and children. I would like 2 children: the boy and the girl.
I shall try to tell a little about my character. I do not know as it to start, I think, that I very romantic person. I like to communicate with people, I like good humour. I very much appreciate such qualities in people, as fidelity and honesty. I believe in love, and I think it very valuable thing which needs to be protected. I very jealous person. I adore, when to me pay compliments and is ready to listen to them indefinitely. It is pleasant to me romantic relations between the man and the woman, but probably all women dream to get acquainted with the good person, to have with him beautiful romantic relations. But frequently such things come to an end very quickly. I have no intention to spend myself on such acquaintances. While I have not met in the life of such person to which I would decide to give myself and the life. But I would like to find such person. I think, that for the woman the main thing to have in a life not career or other success, and strong family and the favourite person beside what to care of him. I want to inform you a little about my life. I to rise morning in 7 o'clock in the morning, I prepare myself for a breakfast. In the mornings I eat a sandwich and I drink coffee. Then I go for work. I go by the bus. Sometimes it happens, that at a stop it is a lot of people, and I cannot get in the bus and to me to have to go on foot. Generally, I love walks, but I love slow walks when it is not necessary where to hurry up, pass on familiar streets, to go to girlfriends on a visit, to sit to have a drink tea, to talk. To me to like to be in a society of good friends. It is possible to solve any problems with them, to share pleasures. The day off at me Saturday and Sunday. In the day off I to like to read books, to go to walk on city, to visit a cinema. Besides in the days off I spend a lot of time on homeworks. I like to prepare for houses, to me to like to prepare tasty I peep. My favourite cuisine it certainly Russian and as it is pleasant to me Italian. In the afternoon in the days off, I am cleaned at home, I like, when the order of a house. I do not like when, things are scattered, the dust lays on shelfs, in a basket the dirty linen lays, you agree with me? Today at me the day off, but at us very bad weather - it is cold also a rain. Therefore today I shall be all the day long at home.
Natasha.

Hello Gavin.
Anything terrible that you badly know Russian. I can well talk in English, only I badly write on it. But now I take lessons of English. It badly that your wife was the alcoholic. At us in Russia the most part of men very much frequently drink vodka. And in villages drink alcohol almost everything, since early age. It because youth nothing to engage. Well that now at us in the country sports and youth quickly develops goes in sports section, instead of walks on streets with the bad companies.
You are right - war this most awful that the person did. I the daddy was lost on war in Afganistan. His name is Sergey. he was lost as the hero. His group has got in an ambush to gangsters. Began fight, was lost many soldier, including mine the daddy. he was still young, and I then was absolutely small and him I do not remember.
How has passed your day? At me all is fine! Yesterday at us the holiday - Day of national unity was. It is rather new holiday. This day in 1612 the national home guard led by merchant Minin and prince Pozharskim has banished the Polish interventionists from Moscow and has begun the end to so-called Vague time. Beautiful salute in the evening was. In the afternoon we with the girlfriend wanted to go fitness the center, but it has been closed. Therefore we have gone with her to walk on city. In streets was a lot of people, despite of cold weather. Today at us the first snow has dropped out. To me always to like when drops out first a snow as in the street to become it is fresh and there is no dirty more.
Under your letters I very well learn you. And I understand that you true the man, that for you as behind a stone wall. You the fine family man. And you very much like me.

Tolstoy, Pushkin, Lermontov. You read books of Russian writers?
We are far apart. But it does not prevent our dialogue. Though I already thought, that through the Internet it is not absolutely enough dialogue to understand each other more strongly. What do you think of it? I think, that sometime we with you shall meet. I to know you not for a long time, but I can tell, that you very fair and open and it very much to involve me and to allow to trust me, that I can love and be loved!
I had relations in the past. But they they were not long. At me was boyfriend. I have got acquainted with him at university. We began to be friends, then to meet. I was absolutely happy. We were together 1,5 years, but then he began to concern coldly to me. Later I have learned that he has other woman. I have thrown him. I any more do not want to be deceived. I want the true, fair person.

I am glad that our relations become stronger every day. I constantly think of you. I am tired from a life here without the person whom I can grow fond, and you - unique who warms me, and gives me force to live. You see, that we became much closer, than ever before.
Today since morning bad weather, blows strong, mood bad and only an idea that I shall see your letter, warms me this day. I want to tell a little to you about the childhood. Mother very much liked and brought up me rather strictly. And I am grateful to her for how they me has brought up. I had many friends, and we with them played in a court yard of our house. It were carefree years, we lived, and we did not have those problems which have appeared when I have grown. I was study to school on well and excellent. I always remember my first teacher. His name is Nina Nikolaevna. she has opened for us a door in knowledge and thanking her I can freely communicate with people. I am indefinitely grateful her for that feeling of human kindness, that she to all of us have imparted. After leaving school I have not lost touch with my schoolmates. We frequently meet, call up. Each first Saturday of February at us in Russia day of a meeting of graduates. We meet with schoolmates, we go in school and we congratulate our teachers.

Letter 6

Hi my dear.
I yesterday thought of our relations and concerning our feelings. I already have so become attached to you, that I miss every day your letters. I always, think of you. I can do nothing with myself. You probably will object me and will tell, that we are still poorly familiar. But it is not enough one letters completely to find out each other.
I have dream - to have a romantic supper at candles with the favourite person. I hope, that is fast my dream will be carried out, and you will take in it participation. I think, that we should meet, we should see each other, look in eyes because through the Internet emotions are lost and it is difficult to understand each other. I hope, that in the future it will take place. To me there is a strange feeling, I do not understand, why me pulls to you, in fact we are familiar not enough time. I ask the God that you have not rejected me.
You well play in a golf? I never played a golf, but I think, that it is fascinating game. Recover faster. You do not take care about itself. To play at temperature 39.8 degrees C! And if you had a sunstroke or you would overheat on the sun?
I wish you successful day!
Your Natasha.

I have informed him, that I correspond with you, and that you from Australia. The husband of mine has informed cousins, that he is ready to risk and transfer money for your account if you will be ready to list them to us. I very much hope for you.

Letter 12

Hello dear Gavin.
I all the same wish to meet you in Australia. That you have refused to help, is not the reason that I did not wish to see you. You are right, it would be possible to send easily money through Western Union. But there, where he now to be, there is no office western union. I understand your fears as you think, that this scams. But in it there is nothing illegal. I assure you. We will not have access to your account, I need to find out only where it will be possible to transfer money. The husband of my cousin wishes to only send to you of money for your account. You from it will lose nothing. The husband of mine cousin is very busy person, and at him is not enough free time to go to the nearest office the Western union. I hope, that you will agree to help us. You are the one our hope.
Natasha.
