Letter(s) from Elena Bondarchuk to Steve (USA)

Letter 1

What a s u rprise!!! You can't imagine my joy. I have checked my mail and what did I see there - a letter from you. Thank you so much for your very nice message. I really enjoyed reading it.
I would like to continue our correspondence very much , of course, if you want the same.
Though I am a little old-fashioned and I think that a man should make the first step, but I really don't feel sorry that I did it and had written a letter to you.
Sometimes I come to the Internet cafe to check my mail or to find some necessary information.
And some of the windows were opened while I was checking the information and suddenly I saw your add. And somehow you have captured my attention.:-) I decided not to miss my chance though I was not sure it was right and that I had to make the first step. But I have no regrets now. I feel a little lost and confused writing all this as you don't know me at all and I don't know you too. But it is so pleasant to get a letter from you.
Well, I hope you are not yet tired from my talking...
Perhaps, you wonder if I write this letters myself.
I speak and write in English rather fluently. I have been studying in the University for 5 years.
At that period we had very difficult times in Ukraine, it was very hard to find any kind of work and there were no work places. So it was the way for me to earn some money. It was not easy for me, I was young and my language was not very good. Also I didn't have any language practice. But any way, it was a good life experience. I made some friends and after work we enjoyed our time. And we had much fun. Unfortunately we have lost our connection. But I still have very good and warm memories about that time.
I am afraid to make you bored with my talking. So I will better stop here.
Steve, just one question for you. Why are you looking for a woman the way like this? I think it is very good to have an Internet as it connects people from different parts of the planet and it is great!
If you don't like my question, you don't need to answer.
I will understand.
And now I want to wish you to have a very good day or night.
It depends on the time you will read this letter.

P.S. 3 times I have try to send you my first message and the letters come to me...
Hope you receive it

Letter 2

Hi, Steve

Sorry!!!!!! I could not answer you earlier.
I did not see your letter. It has been placed in spam folder.
I do not know why it happens.
Probably it is a mistake of a server.
I will disconnect spam filter. Also I hope my letter it will not be placed in yours spam the filter.
Check it more often.
I am glad that you have answered me. If I am still interesting to you, write to me.
Steve, am I right that this is you real first name? :-)))
I have taken it from your letter...
My name is Nataliya. I am 28 years old (still young but mature enough to know what I want in this life).
My height is 167 cms(it 5.5 foots), my weight is 56 kgs (123.5 lbs).
I am in a good shape. I am not skinny but look really nice.
I am not boasting, it is true.
I take good care of myself as I care of my appearance but I am not fanatic.
I have a higher education. I studied on the faculty of Russian and Ukranian language. So I am very good at Russian and Ukranian as you see I have also finished courses of a medical nurse and can make massage too. I should say I am rather good at it.
My family is not really big. I have a step father and stepbrother.
Unfortunately, I don't have really close relations with them.
Sometimes we gather for holidays but it happens very seldom.
I feel very sad saying this but my mother died from the cancer.
I loved her very much and I miss her badly.
I live alone. And I have to learn for my living. I could work as a teacher of Russian and Ukranian. But teachers get very small salaries in Ukraine. And I need to earn for my living myself.
That's why I have finished courses.
Now I work as a medical nurse in the private clinic.
And I also do massage, it is my extra work. Thus how I earn for my living. I am not complaining but it is really a hard work. I should always be kind and polite though with some people it seems to be impossible. I don't want to loose my job. So I try always to be patient even with rude people.
And what is more important, I get moral satisfaction helping people. It is my contribution into the world.
The city I live in is called Kiev.
This is the capital of the Ukraine.
We have many places of interests and lots of historical places. I enjoy walking there. Also we have some theatres and cinemas.
I want to have my own family very much. You know, family is like a castle. Nobody can't break it if you really love your family and fight for it. It is a place where you come with joy and happiness.
And you feel bad and sad your family will always pport you.
This is what I am looking for. I am looking for a person who would be with me in bad and in good times. It is so important to know that there is a person who need you and that you are not alone in this world any more. Do you agree?
Now you will have an idea of who I am.
Ok, I will stop here and tell you more in my next letters.
I will be waiting impatiently for your reply.
Enjoy your day!

P.S. Please, answer me asap that I knew that
I am interesting to you.

Letter 3

Hi darling Steve

Your letters make me feel so relaxed and rested. Not always, of course, sometimes I am so excited that everything falls down from my hands. It has happened right now. All my papers fell down on the floor and my pen too. And everyone who was in the Internet cafe looked at me with the surprise. But I wanted to laugh so much and couldn't put away the smile from my face. Now I realize how silly it looked from aside.
But I don't care, I am writing to the best man in the world.
You see, I write letters at home on the list of paper and then go to the internet and type them there.
Hope you will forgive me for sharing all the details of my life with you.
Well, we still don't each other very well but I already feel that we are getting closer to each other. .
Of course, I would like to visit you to understand if we could be a good match. And I think I will do it in the nearest future. Internet can't give you the whole idea of the person you are communicating with. I would like to come to your place for some days to understand this.
But first, we should write letters and understand each other better.
I have never been married and don't have kids.
I can't say that all men in Ukraine are bad. There are good and bad people in any nation.
But most of Ukranian men are very spoilit with women. And they don't care about our feelings. Sometimes they are very rude and the main problem here is that they drink too much alcohol. And I dream to find a caring, tender and understanding man.
And at this moment in my life I have to take care of myself alone.
Therefore I have paid the attention on Internet.
I will now continue telling you more about myself.
Perhaps, more about my interestsā€¦
Well, cooking is my hobby. Salads, different soups, pasta, souses, cakes and pies- it is just a short list of what I cook. I like very much to try new things. I also like very much going to the restaurants. Unfortunately, I can't often afford it to myself. I do it very seldom, usually it happens when some of my friends has her birthday party.
I like trying new cuisine and trying to guess what are the ingredients.
Steve, what's favorite dish? My is all national.
What is your favorite color? My is blue, black and white.
Watching movies is one of my adorable things to do, especially at the weekend. I have an old model of a video player. Though it is rather old but I still can watch movies on it. So at the weekend I rent some videos or ask my friends to give me some and enjoy it the whole day. Most of all I like to do it in a cold winter day. I stay in my bed with some food, hot tea and enjoy it. I like love stories very much, comedies and sometimes even horror movies.
But I get scared too fast and turn it off What's favorite movie? Any favorite actress and actor?
I like Tom Cruise very much and Angelina Jolie. I think she gorgeous.
I have never been outside the Ukraine. And what about you?
Steve, have you ever visit other countries?
Also I like studying languages. I try to improve my English but It is better when someone teachers you and correct you.
Sports is my other hobby. I do jogging, it helps me to be fit. And I also go to the swimming pool as I think it is a very good exercise.
I don't smoke and drink. But smokers does't bother me.
I am Ukrainian Christian Orthodox. I sometimes go to the church on Sunday.
What elseā€¦ I even don't know. I had so many thoughts in my head but they disappeared as soon as I thought of you personally.
I hope you are enjoying our correspondence as much as I do it and I hope to get your reply very soon.
Please, feel free to ask me any questions you have.

P.S. When is your birthday? My is 30 of May.
P.P.S. do you want see more pics? I can share it on my webpage

P.P.P.S. her is my last messages
