I'm looking forward to visiting your beautiful country and I would like to find a man over there who will be interested in meeting me!
I'm looking for a friend, lover or maybe even something serious...
I'm a free bird now, I don't have a boyfriend and I'm open to anything!!! Pls send me your photos and write me about yourself!!!!
I would like to have a serious relationship although I don't know if that's possible in internet so I'm looking just for a good man who can show me over there and....... we will see!!!!!!!! I hope you like my pics!
I`m 27 years old, I hope my age is ok for you?? My height is 5.6 May I hope that you will write me back? I hope so much!

Hello!!! This is me again! I decided to send you more info about me.
Sorry I don't have much time to write now, it's evening now and my sister is waiting for me. We will go home together.
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 or six months or so and I would like to meet a nice man to be my guide or 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 Russia, I am afraid to be lost.
I want to see the 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.
Last time many girls all over the world also want to start a new life abroad, so many of them used a special program 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 your area. I already started to register
documents and now I need to decide in which city I want to work.
I`m 27 years old and I`m not afraid of work (I will work as a dance teacher).
You know, I`m a professional dancer, I dance in group on festivals, wedding celebrations etc.
But when I will arrive (I will travel alone) I will work as a dance teacher (instructor), I have an international certificate.
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.
My hair is blonde and I have grey eyes. I think I'm somewhat pretty, 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 meet.
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 is waiting 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 then happy to meet you too.
Sorry I really have to go now. I will write more comments next time, my sister is waiting for me and I have to go! It's getting dark here....

Bye-bye!!!!

Elena

P.S. Forgot to say I'm sending two pics, one of them is my sister and me.

Hello Jim!!! This is me again! I was so happy when I saw your e-mail in my mail box.
Thank you very much for your photo! I think its very important to know how a person looks like with whom you are corresponding!
Now I know that you are interested in me and I hope we will be able to meet soon when I will come to your area.
I think I should write you more things about me, I hope it will be interesting for you to know me better!
As I wrote you I`m 27 years old, My birthday is May 28.
I'm 168 cm tall (5.6.) and 51 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, for truth its very easy for me, because I work as a dancer, so it helps me to keep feet!!! As for my family - I live with my mother and my brother. My mother is 46 years old, I love her very much, she works as a hairdresser in a beauty salon. I have a sister, her name is Olga, she is already married and she lives with her husband. I also have a younger brother, he is 13 years old, his name is Maksim. He is very clever and he want to be a naval officer like our father. My father was a great person, he was courageous and brave. He is an ideal man for me. My father died 3 years ago in auto crash... My mum cried for several months but now she is ok, she will never meet another man because my father was the only man in her life and now her aim in life is to grow up our brother.
It was my mother's idea to try to work to another country.
She loves me very much and she thinks that its impossible to earn good money in russia working as a dancer or dance instructor. She read many stories about girls who found their happiness abroad and now she wants me to do the same. As I wrote you I live in russia, the name of my city is Shatrovo it is situated in Tyumen District. It will be great if you also tell me some interesting facts about your city. I don`t remeber if I told you or not but I graduated from Tyumen University two years ago, Economy faculty but I don't work on my specialization because I can't find a good job here in economy sphere, my city is so small. I don`t use any translators and I can speak and write English well. I also have a certificate of aerobic's instructor.
I write my emails from Internet cafe, we have a computer but no Internet.
If you want I can call you when we get to know each other better it would be nice to talk to you. Today I'm going to tell my mother about you, I'm sure she will be happy I've met someone over there who can show me around!
I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?
It's a pity there is no messenger here, ICQ only, anyway I've never used it before...
My address here is Russia, Shatrovo, Repina street 30, flat 12.
So now you have a representation of who I am....
I just can tell you I enjoy life and I try to live to the fullest, I like to try new things. 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! Do you look for any special qualities?

bye!

Elena

Hello Jim! It's good to write you again! I like your photo very much and I can look at you without any stop!!!! 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 soon! Yesterday I told my mom about you. She said that now she doesn`t worry about me as before because now she knows you are a kind man and can help me if I need your help. You can show me your city and tell me more about the life over there! I think I didn't write you I like cooking. I can cook some Russian dishes 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 don't like 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 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) some time ago! I think the third part is not as good as the first part. Have you seen it? Could you recommend me any 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. Sometimes I go to the theatre but not often. There is only one small theatre in my city and there is nothing interesting. If I want to watch a good play I should go to the nearest big city, there sometimes can come some famous Russian actors and dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive. I want you to know small things about my life, because it will show you who I am. Ok, I think I will finish my e-mail for today, because I should go home to cook some food for my mom, sister and brother!
I`m sending one more pic...

Always yours,
Elena
