Letter 1

Hello and nice to hear from you!!!
It is so amazing that I got your message!
I have not even expected that I will hear back from you.
I am new to this web dating and when I decided to try it I did not think that it works so well.
Anyway I am glad that it is and I hope to find out more about you and I guess you want the same.
As I wrote already I have never tried internet for meeting people before and I am confused a little now and do not know what to write.
So I want to apologize if anything will not be correct, ok.
So can you tell me what exactly you are looking for?
As for me I am looking for true love and I still believe in it in spite of the fact that I have not being happy in finding it yet.
My past relationship ended more than one year ago. I was hurt so much and have not met somebody since that time.
But now I decided to try and look for my second half one more time.
That is why I am here and looking forward what will happen from all these.
So are you still interested in me? I hope you are and looking the same.
I do not know what information you were able to see about me so let me introduce myself a little.
I am 26 years old single female, have never been married and do not have children.
My height is 168 cm and my weight is 55 kg. I have blonde and green eyes.
I am sending you the photo with this message so you were able to put the picture to the words.
I hope you will like it. By the way do you know that I live quite far from you and if exactly in Russia country.
Anyway I hope that the distance between us will not be a problem for you. Let me know, ok.
Moreover there are a lot of ways to overcome the distance these days.
What do you know about my country? Have you heard any things about it there.
I live in small town called Cheboksary.
It is very small town In the center of Russia and has population near 250 000 people.
It is very quiet and beautiful and situated in very wonderful land with very beautiful and untouched nature.
I am sure that you will like it if you were here.
We have a lot of possibilities for outdoor activities here and I like to be active and enjoy camping and other outdoor activities very much.
I do not drink and do not smoke. As for my job I work as a teacher in junior school and it also takes a lot of time.
All right I will better stop writing here.
I understand that it is difficult to write everything about myself in one letter but I hope that we will be able to continue our correspondence and know more about each other.
For now I will let you go and I am looking forward for your reply.

Letter 2

Hello Paul!!!
How are you there?
Hope everything is all right and you are doing fine as well.
I am glad to hear from you again and I hope to find out more about you with each letter, about your life there, about your usual days and what you like to do.
I think that your life there where are you different then the life here.
So I am always interested in hearing from you.
I also hope that our correspondence will be honest and sincere.
You know that I am open-hearted and honest person.
I do not like lie or dishonesty and I cannot take when somebody use me or play with my feelings.
You also can be sure that I will always be honest and sincere with you.
As you know I am a beginner in using this stuff and I am curious what will happen and what to wait from it.
I was never even able to imagine that I will write to someone from another country.
I wrote that my relationship ended more than a year ago and I have not dated anyone since then.
If you interested I can write you more about it.
I felt in love with my ex and I thought that I was happy with him.
Everything was fine in the beginning and I made plans for our future together.
But then I found out that he cheated on me with another women and it was even not one time.
It broke my heart so bad and I am still sad when I remember that time.
But life is going on and I want to believe in love again.
I am not young already and I want to settle down with the right person, to love and to be loved and to find the man who will be able to spend the rest of the life with me.
But being busy I do not have time for dates here and I am also afraid to be hurt again.
So I decided to try this and I hope this experience will be good for me.
I have never been out of my country and I also have never thought about movement from my country.
But who knows, everything can happen.
I think if I find the right man I will be able to go to him and be with him anywhere.
So what about your situation? Can you tell me about your life? But if you do not want I will understand.
You know that I live in small town or you can call it village that is very far from big cities like Moscow or other cities you have heard.
Progress here is stopped some time ago. Can you imagine that most of the people do not have computers or phones?
I am not an exception. Sure I even do not talk about mobile phones because some of the people even do not have television.
But there are couple of computers in our central Library and they allow people to use it.
They also installed pay Internet service and it allow me to write you.
I guess you even cannot put yourself in my place but we got used to our way of living.
I graduated college in Kazan town 5 year ago and since then have been working as teacher in school here in Cheboksary.
If you do not know I am the teacher of Russian language.
My job is not paid very well but I like it because I work with the children and I like children very much.
I also studied English in college but it was quite long time ago.
I will try to be better in it but I want to sorry for mistakes I can make in letters, ok.
My work takes a lot of time and I do not have a lot of free time but when I have it I try to find the opportunity and go on the nature.
I wrote that we have wonderful nature here with lots of woods, lakes and rivers and I like go camping or fishing or just picnic with my friends.
I also can say that I am into sport. I like skating, skiing, swimming, aerobics and I go to fitness hall two times a week to keep my shape toned.
When I do not have opportunity for active rest I can read some book, to watch movie or just listen to music.
I like easy listening music but I can listen to any. I am rather romantic person and I like to watch or read romantic stories and comedies.
You see that I wrote you a lot already. I do not want you to be tired after reading my letter so I think I will try to send you other photo with this letter and will be finishing it here.
If you have questions you can always ask me and I will answer them.
So I am letting you go and will wait for your next letter. I am waiting to hearing from you soon.
Your friend Marina.

Letter 3

Hello Paul and how are you?
As for me I am doing fine these days.
I find our writing each other very exciting and I am happy to have new friend like you.
I still do not know what will happen from our correspondence but we will continue knowing each other better and will see.
Am I right? So what else I have not written about myself?
I remember that I have not wrote you about my family yet.
I am the only child in the family and I do not have brothers or sisters.
I have mom and dad and they were very good parents for me and I love them very much.
But I have not being living with them for long time already because after graduating the college I had to go to work here where I am now and they stayed in
Kazan town.
But when I have free time I try to visit and spend some time with them and they also visit me here rather often so we try to see each other when we have opportunity.
But I am not alone here and I live together with my best friend who is like a sister for me.
Her name is Mariya and we rent the apartment together.
We met each other in college and come to this town together after graduating and since then were together all the time like sisters. She is also very close to my family because her parents are not alive and she does not have any family left and me and my family take her like our relative.
So it is breif story about my family. What about you? Tell me more about yourself?
Do you have friends and what you like to do together?
As for me I do not like to be alone and like to spend time with friends.
I wrote that I like different activities and I like to go camping with friends or just go to watch the movie.
But I cannot say that I have a lot of friends.
I think that any person can have only few real and close friends who will help you and support you in any situation.
Do you agree with me? What else you want to know about me? My favorite color is blue like sea or sky.
I also like cooking and I can say that it is my hobby.
What is yours? I guess you have already understood that I am rather romantic person and I like all romantic things music, flowers, kisses or just holding the hands.
I can say that I believe in God and I was raised as Christian.
I think that the main faith must be inside of the people in their hearts and minds and not just in attending the curch because there are a lot of people who do everything only for themself and make a lot of bad things and than just go to the church to pray for forgiveness of the sins.
I think it is not right and they should have faith all the time and not only when they are in the church.
What do you think about it? Do you have faith and what is it?
All right I asked you a lot of questions in this letter already and I think I should better stop here.
If you are not comfortable with some questions you can just skip it, ok.
I will let you go now and will wait for your next letter.
I also want to sorry for some delays in answering and writing letters.
You know that I have to go to the Library to read and to write letters and it takes some time but I will try to write you as often as possible.
Sincere, your friend Marina.

Letter 4

Hello my friend Paul!!!
I am happy to hear from you and I am really glad that I have met you.
My life here were so usual and empty before.
You know that my work takes most of the time and I work 6 days a week and not less than 8 hours each day.
And it was very hard for me to relax or have some rest but now everything has changed.
Your letters and you words full my life with a lot of new impressions and new energy so I do not feel lonely and tired and it is your desert.
Thoughts about you almost completely have occupied my mind and I always think about how and when I can go to the Library to write you and read your wonderful words.
A lot of questions are in my mind all the time.
How are you there and what are you doing at this moment?
These things are so unusual for me and I have never thought that our connection will go such way.
Anyway enough about me. Better let me know how are you?
I hope life treats you well there and everything is all right.
Me and Mariya are doing fine and she asked to say great hello to you.
Remeber I wrote you about her in my last letter.
She is my best friend and like sister for me and yesterday I told her about you and about our way of communicating.
I hope you are all right with it because I did not want to hide anything from her.
She was very surprised and curious but she told me to be a little cautious because she worries about me.
She just do not want my heart be broken again and I understand her.
I tried to calm her and told her that you are good person and do not have desire to hurt me.
I really hope so and we will be able to show her that I am right. Do you agree with me?
You also can be sure Paul that I will never do anything to hurt you because I am sicnere woman and as I wrote already I do not like lie and playing with feelings.
I am really happy that we were able to meet each other in spite of this great distance we have between us and I am curious to know more and more about you with every your letter and then time will show us what we will have.
Anyway only the God knows what the future holds for us but I think that everything should be all right.
I think I should finish the letter with these hopes and I will better go because it is rather late already.
Library is half an hour walk from my home and I want to get home till darkness.
Now I am leaving the Library but I can't wait to hear from you again and hope everything will be all right for you there.
Truly yours Marina.

Letter 5

Hello my dear Paul!!!
My dear you can give me telephone number?
Write please to me, your number is necessary.
Suddenly, to happen an unexpected situation, suddenly I cannot enter into library to write you the letter.
Then I can name you and place you in a course of events with which you did not excite for me.
I hope, what you understand me?
Still the code of your country and a city that I niaea to phone to you is necessary for me.
I wait for your telephone number.
How is everything going there? I hope fine.
Everything is well here and as always I am very excited to hear from you.
I cannot imagine my life here now without you and our letters to each other and I hope each of my letters put a smile on your face.
Do not you think that it is a little silly that we have not even met yet and I cannot stop thinking about you?
Thoughts about you are in my mind all the time and I wait for every your letter with so big impatience.
I miss you more and more with each passing moment and the only thing that helps me to ease it is hope and knowing that you feel the same. Do you?
I am just a little sad because you are so far away from me.
Do you think we will be able to meet some day? I hope that we will.
I have already written that before I met you I felt alone here and there was no man near me who was able to understand me.
But now I have the man who understands me more than anybody and this man is you.
Am I right, Paul? I am really happy that I have met you and that you have become the part of my life here and I want to thank you for being with me in spite of the fact that you are so far away from me.
I am also sad that I do not have my own computer with Internet and I cannot write you anytime I want.
You know that I have to use computer at the library to write you.
But I will always find the opportunity to let you know how is everything here and to write warm words to you, because I want it more than anything and because you are very important for me now.
You know that the only thing that has matter for me is that I can write you and read your words and I will do everything for it and will never leave you. It is a pity but I have to finish my letter here and go.
All right, I will close here and I truly hope that my letters bring smile to your face as it does to me when I hear from you. But most importantly, please think about me often because I feel your thoughts and just thoughts about you help me to make it through the day.
I miss you terribly and cannot wait to hear from you again.
Your Marina.
