Letter(s) from Sarah Raymond to E. P. (Canada)

Letter 1

Good morning! How are you this morning? Hope you you had a good night! I see you viewed my profile. Anyway, I like your profile and everything I read about you. I think we both have something in common so I would be very glad if we could continue from here and see where this takes us. I am very new to this stuff but want to believe something good would come out of it... I wish you could get back to me via my e-mail ID as sarahraymond/at/live/dot/com so that we could share our photos and learn more about each other... I would be looking forward to hearing from you


Letter 2


How are you today? Good I guess! Anyway, I'm doing fine here as well... Thank you for your response! It is refreshing as I've had a few contacts who were so coy and guarded, I just couldn't open up to them and I think by the time you finished reading this mail you should have known almost everything about me: my name is Sarah... I was born and grew up in Kenora Ontario, Canada. and have lived there most of my life. My dad is a Canadian. He relocated to the united states after he and my mom divorced. Is now late ... He died in a motor accident so I was told by my step mom... My mom is of mixed African who came to Ontario with her friend... She was just 17yrs then. She met my dad and fell in love with each other... I am ready for serious relationship but looking for a true love who could be the one of my heart... I love reading,listening to music. I like action comedy movies,love meeting people far or near, I love being with friends and going out for camping and most of all being close to the nature....

I think love is learning to trust someone else with your true inner feelings. Yes, they can do things that can cause immense pain, but real love is about trusting them not to believe that they can't . The whole experience, whether it's good or bad, is about learning more about yourself and what you are capable of handling lol ... I came to West Africa with my Mom since my dad Divorced her and since then I had been living here with her... Now, I want to come back home soon because nowhere like home...

This is why I have to look for a man that can make me happy and be there for me through thick and thin and that can help me find the treasure that I have lost and will see me through all my ups and downs. A man that is loving, caring, understanding, that will respect my opinion and most of all that plays the games of love with most great senses of humor, maturity and understanding. I am very outgoing, communicative, easy going, outspoken. I am also a very ROMANTIC type. Love to cuddle,hold hands while walking with her man. I am inspired by people and children; people that have a lot of passion and drive for what they do. I think life generally inspires me.

I find particularly everything intriguing and I study. I'm a very good student of life and nature. I observe a lot, Trying to find answers to people's action and reactions towards a particular doing, good or bad and so verily I don't listen to reasons I had leant this from my father.I'm trustworthy so far as people tell me maybe I'm just laid back lol...I also tend to have a good heart with so much love to give and to receive. I wish to come back home to settle down with a man of my heart that we could grow up in peace and happy family experience.

There are about 1 million people in the state I am living here now..I'm working in an orphanage program. Its about the little kids orphanage to give orphan and street kids a home...I am good at my job.The little kids orphanage is all about going around the streets pick some kids who are homeless that their parents have dumped them at the corner of the streets so I and my friend go out to pick them and give them shelter to create a safe, healthy and loving environment for them.

To give them a healthy diet and a good education... but to feed kids and also cloth them is not easy here in Lagos...even in other Africa countries and To release them back into the community as healthy and well adjusted adults... but as for me I want to lay a very good foundation down for them before I will be leaving back to Canada.

The children are at the center of everything we do. People help us everyday to improve their health, feeding, shelter and education by donating for them. I love kids a lot and it gives a lot of sorrow when I see them suffering. My philosophy is always that kids are the most important part of society because they are the future. Teachers and people who open their hearts up to children and show them that someone cares about them will not only improve their lives but it will ultimately improve their community.

Being around children is a key source where I find a lot of happiness and joy cos they are very wonderful creatures. I like children a lot they just bring so much joy in people and life, even just a smile on their faces makes all the hectics disappear. They have done nothing wrong to any body or the society. They should be taken care of and loved. I think this feelings nudged me to creating this program for the kids on street with immense support of the Church I attend here and since this has come to being people's response its being very encouraging and supportive...

Its pretty cool here in Lagos, Nigeria. But its a little bit sunny and I have no choice have to live here like that and I will be coming back to the country any time soon, just want to find someone nice before I come because I'm ready to commit myself to the right man not the wrong man and the one that would always make me happy not one that would like to take advantage of my situation.... Hmmm! I guess enough is being said about me... I have attached my photos with the mail for you to see. I would like to view yours as well... Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank You,

How are you today? Its good to hear from you and thanks for the brief info you gave me about yourself. I'm sorry I couldn't reply on time. I'm busy with one of the child who's very sick. I would like to see your pics. I think it will be nice to have a man to spend the rest of my life with so can I ask you this; how do u treat a woman?? Because I believe in one thing in life anything you are doing you must be honest, loyal so that you have your gold so can you tell me about your last relationship so how do you feel when you don't have any woman with you?? Do you think you can really have time for me when I come to you?? What I am seeking is a man as laid out in Proverbs 31. A man who is strong (but not overbearing), loyal, respectful, kind and sweet. That lives his life like what he is not a pretender.

A man that arouses my intellects as well as physical desires. Looking for that somebody that I can share my entire self with. Somebody that is not afraid to be loved as well as expresses love mentally, morally and physically... Well, I will like to tell you that I'm a sensitive woman and truthful... I don't play games and I hate those who play it ... Playing games with someone's soul is like an insidious disease that kills gradually... I am looking for a serious relationship with marriage being the ultimate goal! and I consider myself an easy-going person... I treat man with respect and I do love to take them out. I will like to let you know that age to me is just a number I don't really count that as a big deal what matters to me most is LOVE and being CARING...

All I base Upon is Love and Harmony because without peace,harmony and mutual understanding a relationship is bound to collapse. Another thing which is very important in every relationship is trust. I think Trust is one of the building blocks of lasting LOVE. Without Trust there could be no relationships. I am well brought up with many morale values and a lot of life experiences I'm not saying this to entice you rather to let you have better view the kind of lady I am but I don't think I'm going to have any problems with whoever I hooked up with...

Coming back to Canada is probably my main goal now but that won't happen until I find the right man for myself. Looking forward to hearing from you.

How are you today? Hope your doing great and had a wonderful weekend! Thank so you very much for taking your time to mail and for the pics. I must say you look good and healthy even with your age. Like, I have said before, age is just number to me. What one has inside is the must beautiful and cherishable for me. I really appreciate your concepts and I would like to continue this with you cos you sounded like a man I have been searching for and I don't think a lot still needs to be done but I tell you with time we both are going to be just good and perfect if your really the man you have illustrated in your mail. Also, I'm so sorry about your last relationship. I can see it hurt but you have you life to live and thank God for your life. When there;s life there's hope. I don't want you to keep blaming yourself b'cos women could be unreadable. they could be so unpredictable to the extent that you never know what they could do in the next one second. But, I must say out there are still some other good women which one could still fall back on. I am not saying I a perfect but to a greater extent I am different. Evan, the way you talk really made me know we are both for each other but I am scared cos I don't want to be hurt again. I have had an experience though I don't normally like to talk about it cos when I do it takes me back to the unpalatable scene. OK! let me tell you.

Though, I expect a question to come to your mind (Why is she Single) isn't it right. Is it because she lives away from home or what? Yes, if I had a serious relationship I wouldn't have left Canada and if I am still in Canada I would have gotten married by now but to me God has his own reasons for everything that happens to human beings... Before I left Canada with my mom I had a boyfriend but I broke up with him,I caught him on bed with my best friend,you know how hurt that is,it's SHOCKING,lol. I accused him and had some argument with him on the spot. He beat hell out of me after I had made him what he was. Later, they got married and lived on the same street with me. I couldn't stand. It was so hurting. It could make me commit suicide and murder b'cos I hate them passionately. followed mom down in here Lagos b'cos I do not want wish to smell their air when she got an appointment with SHELL Petroleum Company. so this led me to break up with him,was I right by that decision? And since, I try to protect myself against future emotional pain, but by so doing I realize that I end up hurting myself more. I may not get hurt the way I were trying to avoid, but someone will definitely end up getting hurt, and it's usually me. So this is why I have to be very careful and seek for a complete honest man,who will come home to me,love me,adore me,a strong man with a strong heart who will want our relationship to last forever,a compassionate man,one with good heart and knows how to handle matters,I want a lover not a fighter,lol I am committed to life to the fullest and in growing as a person. Having fun is very important to me and I am looking for someone whom I can share life's experiences with and grow together in faith and love. My ideal match is someone who has a zest for life. Someone who takes time to listen and enjoys you for who you are and tries not to make you something else but good for both. Someone who will love you in spite of your little idiosyncrasies and can have fun and at the same time he most be responsible and serious. Someone with whom I share a strong physical and emotional connection. In the long-term, I believe that is essential that we share similar values and that we have excellent communication with one another.

I have many things I like to do in my leisure time.... but mostly, I like it on the beach cos I like volleyball a lot and when I am on the beach I train with a team every week-end just to keep fit you know lol... My mom too used to be a good player as well. We played against one another when she was still fit. I like hockey too. I wish I could play it but love watching it a lot. I play and watch long tennis too but not too good at it and love it when watching Sharapova and Williams sisters... I like camping and I did a lot of it when I was still in the states cos my Dad provided me with all I wanted. There are many things you learn when you are camping like... meeting people form different cultures and background. I like reading too and cooking. Traveling and sight seeing. Listening to musics and raising family which is my main goal now. I am 28 years and some months and I don't think I have much time left for me to raise my own family... Well, don't know about you??

My stand on faith is... I don not believe in criticizing a particular religion. What I believe most is who good you prepare yourself spiritually and doing good to fellow human beings. I hate wrong doing towards humanity and I can never forget who does that. I think all religion seek one thing which is God and also preach one thing and that is to be good to yourself and to humanity. I would stop here and I would be looking forward to hearing from you soon till then take care of yourself...

Letter 7

Good morning Babe! How are you doing this morning? Hope you are fine and hoped you had a good sleep as well as a dream. Well, I know its mid-night over there as I am writing this but its 8:55am in the morning here in Lagos. Hope you had a wonderful day and looking forward to having a nice weekend! It always been my pleasure to read from you. I really enjoy reading your mail thanks a lot. I would like to continue this with you. You have qualities that I would treasure. Yes I would love to meet you in person. I want you to just name the time and the place oohing! distance well, that doesn't bother me I know very much that things are going to work out between two of us.

Another thing again is communication as you know is very important and key to any distance relationship as ours. First in getting to know each other another. This is very valuable and I quite appreciate what I have read so far about you and every day and night I digest this as in your mails. But the important part of communicating is being honest. I totally agree with you that there's nothing like being together and talking this face to face.

We can talk and talk and make ourselves look and sound good but unless we are completely honest with each other if not we will be disappointed when the time comes to finally meet each other in person. I have lived away for awhile and have traveled many places and therefore I feel I have learned to accept myself for whom I am. I always try to be a good person to myself and others.

I prefer people who are nice, kind, respectful and honest. People who view themselves better than others or think they are superior to others I do not like them. I want a man who respects himself. A man who takes care of himself mentally, spiritually and physically. A man who is willing to work hard towards our relationship. Someone who will contribute to improving and helping us grow together as a family. We must set as an example for our children in raising a family and he must be the man I will love forever. There is so much more I could tell you but I will end here. I only hope you can understand where I am coming from. I hope to hear from you soon. Take care

Always Yours,


Letter 8

Good morning!

How you doing? Good I guess! I have felt so wonderful today thinking about you. Reading your letters make me so happy to know that an amazing man who believes in true feelings like I do actually exists. your words touch me so deeply I feel as though I have possibly found my true love after all...

All I've read about you so far was so good and think your worth to get along with. I don't want to be hurt or played with anymore. I know a love that is shared between two people is the greatest gift imaginable and I dream of it. if you are so kind and giving as to share your feelings with me, I would share my whole feeling with you too and I feel by sharing all of our feelings with each other it would grow more beautiful with every passing moment to become a feeling that connects our hearts and souls together so deeply it will allow us to grow together and become a love that lives and breathes as one. I love the idea of marriage but I know it is much more than just two people living together.

I believe a marriage is the point in time at which our bare souls have grown so closely together and have created an unconditional love for one another so great that it joins us forever as one. that is what I believe a soul mate is and a soul mate is who I want to share my life with. if you share my thoughts and honestly believe in true love as I do I will promise to open my heart to you and all I ask in return is the same.

I love the feeling of touch holding the one you love and being held is a wonderful feeling, whether it's cuddling on the couch watching a movie together, running my fingers through your hair, massaging your neck or back or feet after a long day, writing invisible I love you's with my finger on the palm of you hand, a warm hug and a loving kiss can be appropriate anytime anywhere. I would love to hold your hand in mine and walk anywhere with you.

Those things don't embarrass me at all. I would feel so lucky to be holding your hand knowing you’re the one who truly cares for me. I also want you to know that I feel making love is only possible when two souls love each other so deeply and want to be as physically close as possible and it is the most intimate form of physical touch we can experience. I feel like I have never truly made love because I have never had someone who has truly loved me. I feel somehow connected you to even if its just within short period we've been talking and I know you feel the same. Well. Looking forward to hearing from you soon...

Always Yours,
