Letter(s) from Natalia to Grant (Canada)

Letter 1

Hello Matty,

It's Natalia from Ukraine. I know it's difficult to get to know a person through the Internet, especially when you hope he/she will become your husband/wife. But I'm not afraid of difficulties, besides the bar scene is not for me. I prefer to talk via letters, I hope you will write me and we will become friends or maybe more than friends...
Just know you can talj abotu everything with me, dreams, love, future, sex.
I wish you good day!
I'm here: ua_klubnichka@yahoo.ca
Natalia.

Letter 2

Hey, hello Matty!
Thanks for writing! I like your photos, so you were a professional dancer, reminds me "Dirty dancing"
Well, I guess it's time for me to tell something about my life, but I'm not sure what to say. I mean there is nothing I would like to hide, I just don't know where to begin.
So, I live in Lvov, it's one of the most beautiful cities of Ukraine.
It is in the Western part of the country. Here the majority of people speak Ukrainian, but I speak both Ukrainian and Russian.
I live alone in one room flat. It's not big, but for living alone is enough. By the way, I want to tell you from the very beginning that I don't like the common meaning about Ukrainian women looking for a foreigner. Many people think they are looking for a better life to live, for rich husband and glamour life. I think it's a prejudice.
I can't go bail for all the women, but I'm looking for a better life in another meaning of these words. I look for love, for every day happiness which is expressed in kisses, hugs, tender words. I think the Internet is a safe and interesting way of meeting people. I mean it's better than going from bar to bar.
Actually, I like going not to bars, but cafes, sometimes restaurants,
cinema, and it seems men here prefer bars.
But it seems I was going to talk about me. so, I'm the younger sister.
My older sister, Valya, lives in Kherson with her husband and my nephew. When my father passed away two years ago, my mother moved to Kherson to live with Valya and help her to raise Sasha, my nephew.
That's why I live alone now. I miss them, but I visit them every two month. Sasha is a wonderful boy. I adore him, though I like children at all, not only my little nephew. And you?
I work in Pension Fund, the state organization dealing with pension (money the state pays to retired people). I like my job, because it involves communication.
As to my education I have a diploma of sociologist.
I'm 29 years old, my birthday was on March,29th. I'm Aries.
Well, I told you about my family, my work. Now my free time. I like to watch TV, to read detective stories. I like to go for a picnic in spring and summer. My hobby is cooking. I'm not familiar with foreign cuisines, I just read magazines and if I see an interesting receipt, I try to cook that dish. Do you have a good appetite?
As to the qualities of man I'm looking for, I don't want to make any wishes, except the fact that he should be reliable and honest. Sure as any woman I would like to date a romantic man, because I adore everything special, romantic, little pleasant surprises. It's such a happiness to make somebodies life bright and full of love and love making, it's like to appear in the ocean of pleasure and happiness.
I just don't want to have my heart broken, so let's be serious to each other, OK?
If I sound like someone you would like to get to know better please write back to me. If you can, I would very much like to have your photos. I would like to meet you some day because I don't think we could ever truly get to know each other without meeting in person.
Perhaps we will find that we are soul mates.
If I missed something that you would like to know, ask me. I will be happy to receive your photos, a lot of your photos!
Have a nice day,
Natalia or just Natasha, as you like.

Letter 3

It's me again, Natasha. Matty, I like your photos. I think you're right we are in the same boat.
How was your day? Mine is busy as usual, but it's something I would complain now, because anyway I have no man, so I don't need to go home earlier to make preparations for his coming back. I mean dinner, bath with bubbles, and sure to put on some other clothes which would be bought only for his eyes.
I'm not glad I don't have to hurry up home.
Interesting, what you think about me. If I ask you, will you tell me the truth?
As for me I like you, I feel like I have known you for a long time. I doesn't mean you sound boring and there's nothing new about you. I mean I feel free to tell you everything I think.
Generally speaking, I am very open minded and willing to try new things.
It what keeps one young in mind and soul. Love is an experiment every day. Doing things that makes the one you are with happy is important.
Being affectionate, sexual, and sensual! A look, a touch, heat and passion, the feel, the taste of someone make it exciting. Open to adventure, trying new things, giving sense of freedom with the person in your life.
But to be truth full it has been a long time since I have truly connected with someone. I am very choosey of whom I spend time with. And to date I have put much into work, even though I meet many men have not made any connection. But I am looking for that special person that will send my heart reeling. I thought the date sight could help me, so I'm here. My English is very limited, especially writing so I had to turn to a translator, and now she translates your letters to me, and my letters to you. And I'm learning English from the very beginning. I used to learn it at the school, but we had a young teacher, she was just chatting with us.
What do you think about relocation?
I think that most likely I will have to relocate. It should be a decision taken not in hurry, and after personal meeting. Sure I will miss my country and my family, though I hope I will have chance to visit them.
And there's no doubt I would need the help of my future man, his protection, his care his love. I think it's natural.
I like to experience new things, as I have told, to learn new cultures, so I think it will be also a great fun to discover new country with a man who loves me and whom I love with all my heart. I can't just love, I love with all my heart.
It might be early to talk about strong feelings between us, but it can never be early to suggest and dream, right?
I send you modest friendly kiss!
Natasha.
