Letter 2

Hello!!! It was very nice to receive a message from you!
It is my first time I try to correspondence with man in Internet world.
I do hope you will be enough patient to understand my writing.
I want you to know that I have only good intentions and I don`t have
Big secrets. The thing is that I will work abroad for three months or so and I would
Like to meet a nice man to be my guideor just be good friend to spend time with.I think that it is
Hard enough to live in foreign town without friends and also I have never been abroad. I am from so small
Town here in Rusian Federation,I am afraid to be lost.
I want to see real life and it is impossible to see without
Person who knows all sides of the life. It doesn`t matter what age is
He or what is his eyes color, I just want to know that he is kind and open-hearted inside.
I don't want to live in Rusian Federation because I have not any chances here,it
Is hardly possible to explain it by the first time but I want you to
Know my plans. In Ru ssia many young girls also want to start a new life abroad, so
Many of them used a special program "W ork and travel" for young people who wants to
Work abroad. I also decided to do so and to use it. This program just helps to
Register documents and gives suitable work in any state(town)of USA, Canada or Europa (or other big
Country) . I just need to choose.I already started to register
Documents and now I need to decide in which city I want to work.
I`m 26 years old and I`m not afraid of work (I shall work as the seller in shop or cafe of a fast food).
I think it is the right way for me, I am lost here, and I think that I look pretty enough
To find a better place. I never been abroad so I decided to find a friend abroad and make his
City to be my destination. I want to repeat the same way,it is my only chance to change my life.
I am full of plans and different dreams.
I have brown hair and green eyes. I think I look very good, but
First of all I want to be beautiful inside.
I do hope that you will be not disappointed to meet me in the real
Life if we will meet.
Well,I will close this letter and I do hope to get your reply.
I will leave my town in a few days or so (I can't tell you everything
Exactly right now) and I would like to
Be sure that I have a man who waits for me there. I will work all day
And I would like to find a man to spend all free time together to get to know each other better.
If you have any interest to meet me I will be more than happy to meet
You too. My be it sounds silly but I just don't want to be alone in the
Evenings,and I want to be sure in advance that somebody waits for me!
I think that my e-mail starts to be too long so I will tell you all
Details about me and my life that you would like to know in next e-mails if you will like my
Pictures and will want to meet me! I send my loved photos - I am in the central streets of my city!!
I hope you will like it )))

With best regards Marija! (this is my real name)

I'm responding from my private email address.

Appearance!! I hope so!

Write more things about myself and send more pics!

Letter 4

Stephen hello!
Thank's for your reply so much!!!
I like your photo!!!!! I find you very attractive!!!!!
I'm OK about your age! Have you heard a saying The older the violin the sweeter the music?!
I hope soon I will be able to come to your area and we will meet each other!
This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know More about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any Common interests. I'm 26 years old, not too young I Think? My birthday is 27 February. I'm 167 cm tall (5.9) and 58.5 kg weight.. I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I Don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body Is proportionate ))
I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times
A week and I go to the swimming pool twice a week.
I have no sister or brother. I live with the father and mother.
We all live in two-rooms flat.
As I wrote you I live in Russia. The name of my city is Kungur, it's near Perm city. Kungur is very small and Perm is a
Large city, the main city in our district.
I graduated from Perm Humanitarian University two years ago.
As I wrote you I`m a menager of the big shop, my city is small but we have a
Big shop here. Sometimes I attend courses in
Perm so I have several diplomas (look
Pic), but you know in Russia we don`t have good work opportunities. But this work help me to take
Care about myself. When I come to your city I think it won`t be a problem to find work on
My specialization (I shall work as the simple seller).
My father is 58 years old now, my mom is 46. You see my mom
Is much younger then my father and they are very happy together. My
Mother is a teacher of music in the school. I also could play a piano a
Little. I like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge. I like all kinds of music!
A little about my father: he is in a good shape because we usually make
Exercises together, he doesn`t work now, because he is retired already.
I love both my parents and I'm happy my parents will be not alone when
I leave them and will go to another country. Of course I will miss
Everybody but I want to have my own happiness!

Do you have an International Airport in your city? Please write me it's name an code.
Or write me the name of the nearest INTERNATIONAL Airport to you.

I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer.
If you want I can call you when I will be in Moscow, it would be nice
To talk to you. We don't have international calls here. I suppose in few
Days I will fly to Moscow and start my trip! Today I will tell my parents
About you, I'm sure they will be happy that someone is waiting for me over there!
There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep Emailing
Each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?
My address here is Russia, Kungur Gagarina street 26, flat 87, post code(zip) - 617472
So now you have a representation of who I am....
I just can tell you that I enjoy life and I try to live to the
Fullest, I like to try new things. I'm not that smart.. I was not that
Good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! I don't like to be
Smart! But I'm very tender, caring, artistic, faithful, decent person.
Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own
Minuses and pluses. I don't look any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be
Faithful to me and ready to create a happy family with me and I will
Do everything to make him happy. I'm looking for a soulmate!

OK... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind to

You and if I sent it to the right destination you should receive it by

Evening )))) I hope you will catch my kiss somehow )))



Letter 5

Hello again..I just want to add few things... I think last time I wrote you not all My thoughts... My mind is always in a mess when I write you because it's hard to write everything to somebody who is so far away. I don't Remember if I wrote last time I've never been married, don't have Kids but I love them and they love me! I And I want to tell you that I always wanted to find an older man.
Why? I have two answers..
Firstly, I think older men are much more serious and they can take
Care of me, they are more experienced in life and can teach me many
Things. Have you heard a saying "The older the violin, the sweeter the
Music"? I believe in it... I think I'm not that young already but I
Don't have much experience in life and I want to have someone who has
More experience in life then me.
Secondly... Maybe I'm not right about it... But I want to be honest
I've always had such worry... If I marry a man nearly my age...
And after some years I will become not that young and beautiful... I
Think it's more hard for a woman to be attractive then for a man...
And he will find a younger mistress and I will become very miserable.
I don't want my man to be unfaithful. I know I can be faithful to my
Man and I will never cheat on him.
But this is just my worries. This is not my goal. Please tell me if
You think you will love your woman at any age and not find a younger
One? Can you be faithful?
Also I want to tell you that I learned English in university, so I don`t
Use any translators, and I can speak English as good as I write on it.
I hope we will have no problems in communications. I feel that
You are very nice man I really want to meet you. If you will not like
Me or something else we can be just friends.
I hope I will get my work visa soon in Moscow and all documents and I
Come to you! I don't have any area limits with this visa so I can work
Where I want. I don`t know exact day of my arrival, but as soon as I will
Know I will write it to you.
You know, I'm just trying to be honest with you and write you all my thoughts on
Different issues. Please be always honest with me also....
I will write you later, I will look if I have more nice photos to sendyou.
Have a good day!

Do you like a photos?Do you love carrots? :-)


Letter 6

Stephen hello! It's good to write you again! I think I'm a lucky girl to meet such
Good man as you in Internet! I hope I will be lucky enough to meet you
In the real life!!! Yesterday I told my parents about you.
They said that now they don`tworry about me as before because now they know you are a kind man
And can help me if I will need your help. You can show me your city and
Tell me about the life over there! I think I didn't write you I like cooking.
I will cook Russian cuisine for you! Pelmeni, vareniki, blini, borsch, okroshka!
You will like it! Besides Russian cuisine I like Italian and Mexican. I love
Spaghetti and pizzza!!!!! Mmmmmmm ! I can't live without it! I like
Mexican food because it's very spicy, although I don't cook Mexican
Dishes too often. I've been told my cooking is very tasty!
I like to cook cakes. My favorite is cheese-cake with raspberry! You
Know... When I talk about food I'm getting hungry ))) I eat everything
And I'm not on any diets but usually I don't eat after 7 PM. This
Helps me not to be fat! I can cook many tasty things for you when we will meet! You know..
Almost all Russian men are like bears! They are so rude, they can't be nice
And polite, they don't want to have a family. I think you are not like them.
I like to go to the cinema! I really like to watch a good movie with
My friends. 50 percents of movies in our cinemas are Russian and about 50
American. Actually my favorite actor is Johnny Depp and I like all movies with
Him. I've watched Pirates of the Carribean (part 3 and 4) some time ago! I
Think the third part is not as good as the first part and now I want
To see "I am legend" with Will Smith. Have you
Seen it? Could you recommend me any American movie so I can watch it?
What is your favorite movie and actor? Soooooooooooooooo......... What else could I say?
I have a driver's licence but I don't have a car. My father has a
Russian car and he gives me his car sometimes.
I don`t like only cinema! I like theatre and opera too, I like ballet.
Unfortunately there is only one small theatre in my city and there is
Nothing interesting. If I want to go to ballet, for example, I should
Go to Perm, there sometimes can come famous Russian actors and
Dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive.
By, the way, one thing else about my trip. Agency will help me to rent a room
To stay near my future work. I will share this room with a few girls yet,
It is usual procedure and it helps to pay the rent (it will be cheaper).
And I have a question, is it normal if we will like each other may be it is
Possible to live together?of course if you or somebody doesn't mind.
As you know I will stay there for three months but If I will like there I will be
Able to prolong my trip. I think I will be able to improve my English and you can learn Russian
And I think it will help us to learn each other better,who knows.Do you have a big
Wide bed?(joke). And now I have some good news for you! After sending this email I will
Go home, take my packed bags and go to Perm! From there I will fly to Moscow! I`m
Really afraid to fly on a plane! I hope my plane will not fall down! I'm really afraid!
It is several hours from Perm to Moscow.
When I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. I
Hope today I will be able to write you. Please don't worry about me
If you don't hear from me today, that will mean I was not able to
Find a place to stay and I will write you tomorrow.
In Moscow I will spend a week or maybe even more, I should make all
Final arrangements with my documents and after it I will come to you!
I've never been to Moscow before and I'm so nervous now... I've never
Went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city!
I really want to talk to you by phone, but as I don`t have a mobile
Phone, I will find a public phone in Moscow with international calls.
You know... I had such great desire to start my trip already.. And now
I feel myself like a newborn kitten who has even didn't open it's
Eyes... I just want to hug my mommy and don't want to go anywhere...
But I know that's my dream to start a new life and I will try to turn
In to reality! Soon you will hear some news from me from

Love and kisses! hope I'm the one for you!
I send you photos (I think it is so beautiful))
