Letter(s) from Diana Varenik to Gene (USA)

Letter 1

Hi to you Gene!

Pleased to talk to you, and would be interested to continue communication, to get to know each other better and find out, whether we have chemistry between each other.

I've heard about your country USA, but of course I would be interested to know more about the way you live, your culture and the way you live there. If you want, I'll tell you about Ukraine and the town I live. I can even send you a couple of photos. We have very beautiful church here. And what about you? What interesting places do you have in USA?

So, let's first of all get acquainted with each other closer. My name is Diana. This is my full, short, pet-name. Everybody call me like this, only some of my friends call me Boo, but this is a separate story :) I am not special, though my Mom says that I am :) I am not extraordinary or unusual. I am simply normal Ukrainian woman, but I have all the qualities to become good wife. Actually this is the reason why I applied to the Internet. I believe in love, believe in its existence. I believe that every person has his second half. I also have mine. I haven't met my man yet, but I will find him, not matter where he is, even if I need to cross the ocean and to go to another side of the Earth, I will do this and will find my love. I am serious and sincere, honest, and have only good intentions. I know that I am pretty woman and that mother-nature gave me good appearance. I care about my figure and that's why I attend a swimming pool. I believe that a person should be beautiful both, inside and out. But let's not talk about my appearance, but about my soul and heart. I will answer your question before you ask it: I am not a model, have never been and am not planning to become ever. I just have such face and such figure. I take care of myself, that's why I look like this.

I am 26. My birthday is on January, 14, 1983. I am Capricorn by the star sign, but I don't believe in horoscopes. I live in Izyum. It is small city in the Kharkov region. I have bachelors degree of Kharkov University, speciality art and design. Right now I work as a designer/decorator in a little advertising company in my city.
Here are two photos of me. I'll send you more. I told you some general things about me. if you want to know something particular, just ask. I'll respond certainly.
Write back.

Diana

Hello Gene!

Thank's for your letters and for your photo! You are very handsome man. I read your attachment in English. The Russian variant is absolutely useless because the translator you use doesn't work well. All these on-line translators work too bad, and it is impossible to understand the text after translation. It's because these translators don't include grammar in them and have very poor vocabulary.

Gene, I also would like to say that you probably read my letter not very attentively because I told you that I live not in Russia. Why did you decide that I was from Russia?

And the last thing I'd like to say here is that I don't know English, so probably it may be a problem for you. In your attachment you said that you were looking for a woman with the ability to speak English. If it makes you feel better, I am going to study the language in the future.

So, Gene, you should make your decision now. If you still are interested in talking to me,please, tell me about yourself.

Diana

Hello Gene!

Thank's for your mail, it's nice to heart from you again. How are you today? Hope you're well. Ok, Gene, let's forget about that misunderstanding. You see, for me it's not so principal that you are aware that Ukraine and Russia are different countries, but you need to know this.You see, Gene, I was talking to several people on the site who seemed to be normal. They said that they would come to my country and suggested to meet for a cup of coffee. I didn't mind, and said that alright. it's not hard for me to meet in my country for a tea of coffee. And then they said something like.... "Oh, Ok, let's meet in Moscow.." and then I realized that those people didn't even imagine that Moscow is the capital of ABSOLUTELY different country, and for me it is too hard to go there.You see, Gene, why I said you that I lived not in Russia. You should remember that I live in another country, and here everything is different: government, rules, etc... Ok, enough about this, let's talk about how you are today..

For me it's one more usual day. Actually all my days look like each other. Well, perhaps now absence of adventure is also not so bad. At least some stability :)
Right now stability is real luxury. This world crisis is the main topic of discussion in all the news. My friends discuss it even when gather for celebrating someone's birthday. Yeah, of course it stroke everybody, but we should have at least some positive thoughts. For instance, I think that everything will be alright. There's a good phrase: everything passes.., and this shall pass too...
It's life. It's hard because it can't be easy.

I prefer enjoying little things, like good sunny day, warm weather. For instance in the morning I woke up, opened the window.. and there's warm wind, and there is sun.. Good! And my mood rises! :) Soon water in the rivers will warm up, and it will be possible to go swimming and having barbecue on the bank of the river.
Isn't this a reason to cheer up at least a little bit? :)

I'm going to spend next weekend at my Granny's place. I have Granny, she lives in the village not far from my town. Almost all my childhood I spent there. I went there every holiday, sometimes on weekends to walk with my friends. My first love also lived in that village :=) I've got lots of memories connected with this village. Who knows, maybe some day I'll show it to you..? Maybe the road of life will turn to us like this.. We never know what's waiting for us tomorrow, but I like to dream. About good of course :) My Mom came from that village, by the way. I was born there. But then my mother met my father Victor. They married, Dad adopted me, and we all together moved to the bigger city. By the way, I still live with my parents.

What qualities do you expect to see in your woman?
What about your dreams from childhood? Which profession did you dream to have, and whether you achieved this?

Yes, Gene, you are right, I use translator for communication with you. It's the translator of the company where I use their services. But I want to say at once that I am planning to study English. As soon,as the situation with this economical crisis becomes better and easier, I will enroll myself into the classes. It's only temporary problem. So, don't worry, Gene.

So, it's about me a bit :) I'll be waiting for your mail.
Diana

Letter 4

And one more time hi Gene! :)

I like greeting you and it's a pleasure to get your mails. So, how are you today? As for me, I'm more or less alright. Today we're going to Granny, as she feels unwell and asked to help her.

Gene, I tried to read and understand the text you sent me through the electronic translator, but it was impossible... :-( The on-line translators are really bad. I tried many of them when only applied to the Internet. I thought it would help, but there was no any result because all of them work too bad. You know, I think that if everything was so easy, no one would study foreign languages at all :-)

How is the weather like there for you? Here it's pretty warm. A little bit windy, but alright. I'd gladly go somewhere for the barbecue. Very often I dream about spending time on the bank of the river together with my loving man. The only problem is that I don't have loving man :( But I am here, and I know that somewhere in the world there is my other half. And I'll find him, even if I have to climb the mountains or swim the ocean. For love I am ready to do anything. I'm so tired from being alone and I don't want this any more. I want to know that in the evening I will be not alone, I want to cook dinner for someone, I want to make the bed for someone, to make little presents, to walk in the park and enjoy the beauty of the nature, I want to spend weekends not alone. I miss this feeling of love a lot, but I am sure that I will find my second half, even if I have to cross half of the world on foot.

In the morning I went to the gym. Usually while training I think about something, maybe dream, sometimes make plans for the rest of the day or weekend. And today I had a picture in front of my eyes..: I saw my arm.., it was in someone's big masculine hand. Then I saw my back, and there was someone's big back near too. Then I saw that I was walking... and I was walking not alone, but with a man. I didn't see his face, only back. But I knew for sure that it was MY man, my loving man. I don't know what face he has. Maybe he has your face..?!

What are your plans for tonight? As I told you, I'm going to visit Granny, as she is not well. She lives in very nice and picturesque place. Who knows.., maybe some day I will show it to you and make personal excursion. It's life, and we never know what is waiting for us tomorrow :=) At least this is why we're both here - to find our second halves in spite of everything.

Take care. Be waiting for your mail. Diana
