Letter(s) from Larisa to Tony (USA)

Letter 1

Hello Tony!!! It is Lara from Russia. Sorry that I have not answered your e-mail earlier. You know that I am new at Internet and I have just checked my e-mail. I was not able to do it earlier. I had some problems with it. I was really excited to get the reply from you. I was not sure that you will write me back. I am new in it and I do not know how everything works. But I am glad that you got my letter and answered it. I guess you have a lot of questions you want to ask me. First of all I think you want to know how I look like. I will try to put my photo with this letter so you will know how I look like. Hope you will get it. I can describe my profile so. I have blonde hairs and blue-gray eyes. I am 5'4" height and my weight is 120 pounds. I have never been married and I do not have kids. I was born on the 20th of December in 1976.I am 28 years old now but I will be 29 in December. I have lived in Russia for all my love and have never been in other countries. I live in rather small town called Salavat. It may be called village or countryside in your country. It is situated not very far from Ufa city. I do not know if you have ever heard about it. It is in the Ural part of Russia near the Ural Mountains. I like my small town because it is rather quiet and we have very wonderful, untouched with people progress, nature here. What do I do for a living? I work in the social center for children with limited opportunities: orphans, invalids, wheelchairs and other kids. It is like school where we teach children to adapt to life. During the free from my job time I have a lot of interests. I like sports, fitness, dancing very much and I try to be active in live. I like outdoor activities, camping, etc. When I do not have time for active spending time I like to read, watch the movie or just listening to music. I guess you want to know why I am looking for someone so far away. You know I had bad experience with my past relationship here. But in spite of this fact I still want to find the right man who will be my friend and my soul mate, who will love me and will share with me all happy and sad moments of the life. I am one-man woman and I will be able to give all my life, love and care to man whom I will love. So I decided to try Internet. Hope I will be able to find him one day. Maybe he is you. Everything can happen. Am I right? All right I think I should let you go for now. I understand that it is difficult to write everything about me in one letter. I hope we will be able to know more about each other in our next letters if you would like to continue our correspondence. I am sending you the photo with the letter as I wrote. So you can see how I look like. I am looking forward to hearing from you. By the way my first name is Larisa but my friends call me Lara.
You can call me Lara too. Your friend from Russia, Larisa.

Letter 2

Hello Tony!!! How are you? I am glad to hear from you. Thank you for the photo. I like it. I was excited to meet you and even it was just Internet. I do not know where our correspondence will go but I find it rather interesting. What about you? All right I want to introduce myself in more details and try to answer the questions you have. I will let you know more about my personal life and interest, ok. I have written that I try to be active in life. I do not smoke, do not drug and do not drink alcohol. I like outdoor activities. I like camping very much and I try to spend my free time with my friends on the nature. I also like sports. I was fond of ball and Latino dances when I was young. Now I am engaged in fitness. I try to go to sport hall as often as I can and try to be in good shape. I also like winter sports too. I like ice-skating or snow skiing during the winter. You know that we have a lot of snow here in winter. Sometimes during the evening I like to read a novel, to watch movie or just listening to music. Most of all I like classical music but I can listen to different music and it depends on my mood. As for movies I like comedies and romantic films. I think I am rather romantic person. I like romantic things like flowers, dinner with candles, and walk under the moon. I believe in destiny and in the love at first site. Maybe it is unusual, but it is me such as I am. As for my dislikes I guess I do not like common things as any person do not like. I do not like lie or dishonesty. I do not like to play with the feelings of other people and do not like when somebody plays with my feelings. I think I have similar goals in life as any single woman has. I want to find the right man who will fill my heart with love and with whom I will be able to make my own micro world and be happy until the end of time. I have written that I was hurt with my past relationships here. A couple of years ago I met one man here. He cared about me and told me that he loved me. He did all things that I failed in love with him. We were together for 1 year and I even had thoughts about marriage with him but then I have found out that he slept with other girl. It was like impact of the knife in my heart and I left him. I suffered very much from the pain that he maid me to feel. I thought that all men are rude and bad. But now I calm down and have forgotten about all these and decided to try to find the love again. I think you understand now why I am searching for someone in the Internet and why I do not look for someone here. All right it is enough about sad things. There are other things that are more interesting to write I think. I have written that I live in Russia in Salavat town and I have been living here for all my life. I have never traveled out of my country. I have never been to your country and I have never thought about it. But I think I will go anywhere just to be with the man whom I will love. I graduated the University 5 years ago and you know that I work in the social center for children. I have been working here for almost 5 years already. I like my job in spite of the fact that it is not paid very well. I love children and I want to help them in everything I can, especially if they need for help. What else I can write you about me? I am not good in describing myself I think. If you have questions you can always ask me, ok. What about you? How is your life there? I also would like to know more about you, your life, your likes and dislikes. You can always write me about it if you want. In the end I want to sorry for my mistakes in English. I hope you can understand everything I write. I studied English in the University and I can speak it but I do not have enough practice here. All right I will better go now. I want to sorry if you have to wait for my letter and that I am not able to answer your letters quickly. I am writing you from the Internet cafe in the town. I do not have computer and phone at home. In our small town civilization lags behind for several years I think. So I have to use services of Internet cafe and it takes some time to get to home from there. I do not have car and I have to take the bus to get home or go on foot. I will try to go to Internet cafe as often as I can. So I will be waiting for your letters with big impatience. Hope to hear from you soon. Your friend Larisa.

P.s. I am sending you the photo with this letter. It was taken on the rock near the lake not very far from my town. There is very beautiful nature here isn't it?

Letter 3

Hello my friend Tony!!! Thank you again for the lovely picture. How are you today? I hope everything is fine. As for me I am really glad that I have met you. I do not know you very well yet but you know that I find our correspondence very interesting. Sometimes I feel alone here and I am so happy that I have new friend whom I can share anything. I have one good friend here. We live together now. We rent the room together. Her name is Maria. I met her when I studied in the university. We became the best friends for each other. I think we are like sisters now. I think any person can have only few real friends. I have such friend and I know that I always can hope on her help and support. She helped me very much in my life. You know I have rather sad life story and I do not like to talk about it. I had some doubts if I should tell you about it but I do not want to have secrets from you. I am the only child in the family. I do not have brothers or sisters. One year ago I lost both my parents. They died in the accident or better to say were murdered. They were killed by car with the drunk driver. He is in jail now but it will not help my parents to come back. I was in depression for some time. I have not forgotten about it yet and I cry sometimes when I remember my parents. Sorry dear about sadness in my letter. I think I should stop talk about sad things. If I am writing something inconvenient for you, you should always tell me about it, ok. Maria helped me during that time and she is really become my sister. I have some friends from my work but we do not spend a lot of time together. They are not too close friends for me. I think it is because everyone has own life. But sometimes we gather together and go for picnics, cinema or just spend time together. What about you? Do you have a lot of friends there? What do you like to do? What is you favorite color? I want to know everything about you. But I do not want to be persuasive. I guess you can write everything you think I should know. As for me my favorite colors are white and green. I like flowers very much you know. My favorite flowers are lilies. May I ask you the question? Do you believe in God? I am Christian. I believe in God but I think that the main faith is in the heart and not just in going to the church. There are a lot of people who go to the church just for view or fashion. I am against such faith. You know what I am looking for in my life. I have written that I want to have the right man who will understand me in everything, who will love me and whom I will love. I want to have beloved man who will care about me, the man whom I will be able to give all my life and love, who will make me to feel the happiest woman on the planet. It is dream for now but I hope that it will come true one day. Maybe it is strange but I thought about you. You know that I am very interested in you and our correspondence. I do not know what exactly made me contact your ad. Perhaps it was some kind of intuition. I am really glad that I wrote you and I hope this intuition will not lie to me. Hope everything will be fine with it. I hope you are not bored with my letters. I think I should let you go now. I have written you a lot of information about me in my letters and I spend a lot of time writing them because I type very slowly. Hope my typing skills will be better in some time. Sorry I do not have the photo to send you with this letter. I do not have camera and I have to scan pictures here in the Internet cafe. I will try to send one with my next letter, ok. I stop for now and I am waiting impatiently for your reply. Sincere your Larisa.

Letter 4

Hello Tony!!! I am happy to hear from you. I have not thought that someday I will be so excited to read your words when I wrote you first time. I begin to think about you and I am wondering often how are you there and what you are doing now. You know I have rather usual life here. As any person I work most of the time. I work 5 or even 6 day per week and more than 8 hours per day from 8 am till 5 pm. My work takes a lot of energy and I also I try to go to fitness several times a week. It helps me to relax sometimes. Such are my regular days here. But now I usually run to the Internet cafe after my work and your letter like a new breathe in my usual life and I begin to miss your words when I am not able to read you letters. In general I am doing quite well today. Maria, my friend I wrote you about in my last letter, is fine too. But she warns me to be cautious with all these Internet stuff. I do not know why but she is very skeptical about Internet things. She told me that there are so many lies in the Internet and you cannot believe anybody. She says that you even can be twelve years old boy somewhere in Australia and I even will not know about it, or even worse that you can be sexual minded man who is just looking for cyber sex. I hope that you are serous about all this and you do not lie to me. I want to believe you and I believe you. I hope we will be able to change her mind, will we? Tony, I am really glad that we have met each other and I am not afraid of anything. Time will show to us everything we want to know I think. I want to hope that we will have a lot of nice moments in the future and I hope my hopes will not lie to me. Anyway only the God knows it. As for your questions I do not have close relatives here. I do not mind my boyfriend Asian. Sorry dear it is rather late here already and I need to go home. It takes some time to get home from the Internet cafe. You know that I do not have car and I use public transport for transportation but thoughts about you will help me to pass away the time. I will try to write you more next time, ok. By the way I am sending you the photo of Maria and me with this letter. It is taken in the cafe in our town. It is not Internet cafe. It is just cafe where you can eat or drink juice, tea or coffee. As always I will wait for your letters with very big impatience and will think about you. Your letters are becoming very important for me. I can't wait to hear from you again. Anyway, I am going to go for now. Hope things are going to be good for you and hope you will write soon. Yours, Larisa.
