Letter 1

Hi! Thank's a lot for your answer!
I am from Russia. But its impossible to send any email on the site from "Russian" profile at all. Excuse me please for this misunderstanding. Telling from the beginning that profile wasn't mine, I know a woman who is on a dating site. It was a profile of that woman, but she let me find someone from the dating site from her profile.
I don't know how to use the site, I'm not sure what could I write for the first time, I'm sending my photos...
I have many photos, sorry I don't have any professional one, just usual photos. Let me know and I can send more pics!
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've never been abroad before and I would like to visit it so much! 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 live in Russia.In small town in deep of Ural.
May I hope that you will write me back? I hope so much!
Also I hope I'm your type of girl, I'm not sure you like Slavic appearance!!

OK, I will wait for your answer. When I hear back from you I will write more things about myself and send more pics!

Anastasiya (this is my real name)

Hello!!! This is me again! I decided to change my e-mail address. I don't know what is wrong with my old e-mail.
Maybe I did something incorrect. I don't know. I am not very skilled in computers. Right now I know how to use mail client and didn't work with other software for communication. Maybe sometime later I will learn about other type of programs for communication but not right now. I hope you can understand me. This is my new e-mail address: leschuk_na@yahoo.com Please write me to my new e-mail address. I hope everything will be ok this time.
I really hope for it. It is my first time I try to correspondence with man in internet world.
The thing is that I will work abroad for 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. I am from a small town here in Russia, I don't want to be alone over there without any relatives or friends!
I want to see the real life over there and maybe you will be able to tell me more about your culture and life over there and give me some information in general! You know, life in Russia is rather difficult,especially in small towns.
I don't want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here,it is hardly possible to explain but I want you to know my plans.I saw many stories in news on tv about girls who started a new life and decided to work abroad...
So I decided to do the same and to try to find my luck abroad. I started to register my documents about 2 months ago, so I will travel soon and I will be allowed to work!
You see 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 a hardworking lady! (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 can teach ball dances and sport dances.
I want to work hard and change my life! You see that maybe I'm too naive but I still believe in miracles to come!
I decided to find a friend and make his city to be my destination.
I think it is great chance to change my life. I am full of plans and dreams!
My hair is blonde and I have mixed color of eyes (it depends on lightening)...
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 when 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 I have a man who is waiting for me over there. I will work hard and I would like to find a man to spend my free time together to get to know each other better and have some fun together.
If you have any interest to meet me I will be more then happy to meet you too.
If you want I can call you when we get to know each other better it would be nice to talk to you.
Sorry I really have to go now. I will write more next time, my sister is waiting for me and I have to go!

Bye-bye!!! Anastasiya (for short you can call me Nastya)

Hello Steve!!! This is me again!
Thank you very much for your photo! I think its very important to know how a person looks like with whom you are corresponding!
I think I should write you more things about me, I hope it will be interesting for you to know me better!
My birthday is 21 of June 1982. I am Gemini. I'm 167 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 am a christian and on Sundays I go to Church. I've never been married, don't have kids but I love them and they love me! I don't smoke, drink occasionally. My favourite color is blue. As for my family - I live with my mother and my brother. My mother is 48 years old, her name is Valentina, I love her very much. I have a sister, her name is Zoya, she is already married and she lives with her husband. I also have a younger brother, his name is Maksim.
He is very clever and he wants 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 in auto crash 7 months ago... My mum cried 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. My mother 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 town is Asbest it is situated in Sverdlovskaya Obl. (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 Ekaterinburg 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 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, so we can talk only using e-mails... My address here is Russia, Asbest, Zalomova street 26, flat 29. 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!

Nastya

P.S. Forgot to say I'm sending a pic with my sister, my father and me (2 years ago).

Hello dear Steve! 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! Sometimes I like to listen to music.
I like almost all kind of Music and my favourite one is pop music and classical. 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? 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 and I should go home to cook some food for my mom and brother!

Nastya

PS I'm sending more pics this time! They were taken in Sochi one year ago. Hello Steve! I don't have enough time to write a long email I'm in a hurry....
Please write me the name of the closest Airport to you (possibly International) and it's code (if you know).
For example the closest Airport to me is Ekaterinburg and it's code is (SVX). I already started to pack my things and I want to start my trip so I will go to Moscow from Ekaterinburg. I have so many worries and I'm so afraid to start everything but if I don't start it now I will never do it!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will go to airlines office now and will buy a tickets to Moscow, its very expensive, but I have some savings so I have money to pay for plane ticket to moscow and to pay for renting room in moscow. As soon as I will arrive to Moscow, I will finish my documents to travel, as work permission, medical insurance etc. I`m waiting a confirmation of airport from you, so I will buy ticket to your airport. I know it won`t be cheap, but my mother will receive a salary for last 6 months (her work detained wages) and will send me money when I will find out the cost of tickets!I will know this info in Moscow. I asked my sister to take a naked photo of myself because I didn't have any naked photos and I thought I will need them and it was my choice. Also I didn't want all men to look at this pic.... and now I know you little more and I will cross my fingers I'm not wrong in doing this and I will make a show of trust and send you my naked pic to you hoping it will be for your eyes only and you will not show it to someone. I was not comfortable to pose for such pic and I tried to smile, I think the pic is nice. I don't want to chat about sex or something like that, I just wanted to show you how my body looks like... and that's all. Maybe I shouldn't do this but I will click "send" button and close my eyes! I hope you will be not mad on me because I sent this pic for you, I'm a good girl, really!!!!!!!!!! Please don't show my pic to anyone and please don't ask for any naked pics in different poses or something like that. I'm a good girl and I'm not info taking naked photos!
I really apologize if you think now I'm not a good girl... I hope you don't think so.
I'm impatiently waiting for your answer! AAAAAAAAAAAh!!!! I'm so ashamed to send this pic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
