Letter(s) from Anna Saulenko to Anders (Sweden)

Letter 1

Hello Anders!
My name is Tatyana. I badly understand the Swedish language. I know English language is better. This letter shows you, that I not live in the Sweden. It is a mistake. I live in Russia. I wrote, that I live in Russia, but it was said anyhow, that I'm from the Sweden, therefore not to be surprised. I live in Russia. The matter is that acquaintance on the Internet now is popular all over the world. I have noticed your profile. Anders, you live in the Sweden and this is a good place to live!
Sweden is the country of freedom. I've never been to the Sweden however, but I know about your country much. Each person has the right to a good life and you have enough freedom to have a worthy life. Everyone has equal opportunities. In the Sweden I think more opportunities for a good life. There where I now live is not the best place to live and create a family. But even in such country I can do a good living. I like to work, I have family values and I want to have the best life with a good man, the man who I shall love and who will love me as well. I think that women here are good enough to be the wife of the Swedishman.
I am the woman who appreciates love, fidelity, honesty. I am not spoiled by easy and carefree life.
I saw your profile on the Internet and you have drawn my attention. We can know each other better. I also want to draw your attention by my
letter and that's why today I won't write much to you. I only willl tell now, that I'm of 28 years. My height is 168 centimeters (5 ’ 6 "). My weight is 55 kg (123 pounds).
I hope, that you understand, that I want to create a family, I want to live in the Sweden and to have the best life. I achieved in life much, I have got used to go up to the end in achieving the purpose. I have verything in this life except for family and true love. I am searching for love now. I am not a poor woman. I belong to the middle class in Russia. I have a good work and I have enough money for living here.
I hope, you can see my pictures. With hope, Tatyana.

Letter 2

Anders, franckly speaking I knew that you will write me! I felt it! It really brings me pleasure, that I have received the answer for my letter!
I want to tell at once, that I also have written to two more other men. However they have not written back yet. Probably later they will write me. I hope, that you are not against I wrote not only to you. I can't speak about it. You wrote me first and that's why I will concern your letter especially closely!
My first letter to you was short. I do not know if I can write you much. I do not know what tell you. Our dialogue on mutual questions and answers will be probable. Besides I want you to tell me about your life!
Anders, I want to know if you understand my purposes of our acquaintance? I want to explain you the purposes of my acquaintance. I'm now 28 years it's a good age to create a family. I have not been married before. And I do not have children. I am searching for my soulmate. I want to marry
to an man from Sweden. I want to live in Sweden and I want to have a happy family. In the Sweden I can give more to my family and children. For this reason I want to live and work in the Sweden. Sweden is a beautiful country.
I want to believe that your purposes are the same and you also want to be married to a human being. I hope, that you also search for love and happiness. I shall hope, that both of us want to live a worthy life in love and happiness. It was about my purposes and I probably should speak now about me. I shall write only the truth about me.
I do not think, that there is any sense to tell a lie. Are you agree with me? Both of us search for love. I want, that my love was strong, pure, true and up to the end of my life!
The Internet featureless and I shall hope only for your honesty and I shall trust you. I in general have got used to trust people. I do not trust the Internet however, but I heard many happy histories about other people. Those people spoke, that they found each other in distance of several thousand miles and fell in love. Now they are happy and live together. My work allows me to use a computer and I found time to read about it.
I want to tell you so many things! Please excuse me if I won't be able to tell you much today. We will have still time to speak! Before us still it is a lot of time to learn each other! Today I had a lot of work. We will soon have meeting and I should prepare the report.
By the way! I told you nothing about my work. I work in a company "Permneftegazopererabotka". Our company is engaged in sale of gas to consumers. I work as the head of a department on sale of production. I am on this post for 1,5 years! My work gives me good money. I have worthy living. I work, I got tired at work. I receive fair money for the work.
I live in the city of Perm. My city is on distance of 1300 km to the east from Moscow. My city is located on the river Kama. The population Perm about one million people.
Today I want to send you picture. Later I will send you more pictures. I have also a computer at home and there are more pictures. My home computer is not connected to the Internet and that's why I can send you my pictures only from work. I will take measures to send you more of my pictures. OK? And I want to see your pictures also!
Well, I will wait for your next letter. You probably already have many questions for me? Write soon! Have a nice Day! Tatyana.

Letter 3

Hello Anders!
I was waiting for your letter! I very like your pictures and I thank you. Please continue to send your pictures! Today I woke up early. I usually wake up at 6:30. I opened a computer in the morning and worked a little. I prepared for a meeting with experts. I've already told you, that it is necessary for me to make the report. Yesterday I worked at home till 23:00!!!
How was your day? How is work?
You know, I received today the letter from another man. He is from city Sigtuna. His name Pete. However, I should tell, that he does not want to have serious relations. I have written to him and have told, that I in that case do not want to waste time. I have explained, that I search for serious relations.
I will not write him any more. I promise it to you. I want to ask you a question. What made you to write me? Interest? Curiosity?
I like to have an active way of life! Sometimes I should work not only in our city. I'm sometimes sent on business trip. I do not go on business trip often.
I went on business trip to Moscow sometimes and also I went to St. Petersburg.
I like to travel in summer. I travelled across Russia and also I was in Turkey. In the world there are many fine places. Here in Russia there are also many beautiful places!
Anders, I want to tell you about my life at the present. I think it's very important for us to know about each other as much as possible. I have a rather big family. I have two brothers: senior and younger.
My senior brother is already married. The name of my brother is Andrey. My second brother is younger than me and his name is Sasha. He studies at school. I live in a separate apartment. My brother also lives now with his family in a separate apartment. However, he lives in the city of Nizhni Novgorod.
We are lucky to meet only several times a year. He comes to us. My parents now live near me. They live together: daddy, mum, brother and grandmother.
My daddy's name is Nikolay, the name of my mum is Kristina. The name of my grandmother is Alina.
Daddy and mum now work. My daddy is an engineer. He works in a building company. My mum works at a hospital. She is a doctor. I often invite my parents to visit me and I visit my parents as well! My daddy and mum have been living together for 31 years!
Anders, are you from a big family? Tell me a little about your family! OK?
I've got to work much today. I should do a good work! It is very important! I will be waiting for your letter. I hope that this is a good letter for you.
Yours faithfully, Tatyana.

Letter 4

Hej Anders!
Thanks for the letter and pictures!! At you remarkable children. I am at work right now. I usually work till 18:00. I got up at 6.30 today. My day today began well enough. I as usually prepared breakfast. Yesterday evening I dealt with my clothes. I washed yesterday evening. I have a good washing machine. It is an automatic washing machine. It helps me much. Generally I like staying at home and doing housework! By the way I like to cook! I am a good cooker! I'm sure that you like Pizza! I like to eat at home and I do not like to go to the restaurants of fast food. I take care of my health. I try to eat only natural products. I don't drink alcohol much. I do not smoke also. A woman should possess natural beauty! I take care of my body. I go in for sports also. I do Fitnes! I go to the Fitnes-Club. I like to go to the pool also.
I shall try to search Karlstad on map. I want to tell you, that your life is very interesting for me. Please, tell me as much as possible. OK? We are all human beings and I understand you as a person but we are of different cultures and I probably do not know some things. I will be glad to hear from you about it! Your letters help me to represent your life better. Anders, I would like to ask you about your hobbies. What doyou especially like to do? Do you like to watch TV?
Do you like to go shopping? Do you play musical instruments? I know, that anyhow you should have a hobby! Do you like music? I like to listen to various types of music! It probably depends on my mood. I like classical music! I have many disks at home! Besides, I like to go to the cinema. When a new film is on my girlfriends and I buy tickets and we go to the cinema!
Theatre? I haven't been to the theatre for a long time and I think that it is a real art! I went to the theatre probably 2 years ago. Unfortunately in our every day life we have a lot of work and various deals. That's why it is not always possible possible to find enough time for entertainment. Do you agree with me? We are already adults and many other cares are peculiar for us.
I hope, that my letters are not boring for you and you are interested in what I write you. I only want to show you my life and to tell who I am. I can sometimes be very curious and that's why not be surprised! OK?
I think, that man should be an initiator. Usually men suggest a woman to meet , men invite to the restaurant, to the cinema. Men offer heart first. I am an independent woman. I want to feel like a woman. Some men do not appreciate the woman. Anders, you should treat me first of all as to a woman. Unfortunately we are now far from each other and we have no opportunity to meet. Though I would like to see you in person! Anyhow our acquaintance very unusual and is interesting for me! Franckly speaking here in Russia some men offer me their friendship. I am young and rather attractive. But I have already told you that I want serious relations and I want to create my family in the Sweden.
You attracts me very much and it is very interesting for me to speak with you! I will hope, that you also want to speak with me and it is interesting for you.
You are now my good friend! wow! I have the friend in another country! The Internet is a wonderful thing!
Please, only consider me seriously. OK? Probably you are the man of my dream? I will be always frank with you. I promise it to you.
Have nice week-end!! Tomorrow I probably shall go to my girlfriend Kseniya on a visit. We can we shall go to walk. I shall start to work on Tuesday. On Monday in Russia a holiday - on March, 8th Women's Day. I will be waiting for your letter!
Sincerely, Tatyana.

Letter 5

Hello Anders!
I want to tell to you that on Sunday I was at home much and in the evening I had walk in park with Kseniya. On Monday I did not work. I was at home and watched TV.
Today is a good day! Weather became better! I am an optimist in all and I try to find the best in every thing! How about you? Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Today I woke up rather early. It was necessary for me to repeat my report. Today at work I made reports for my boss. I also made the report and it was successful! I worked well of at home and therefore today I have success at work! My colleagues admire! My boss is also very pleased that he has good experts!
Did you think about me? I was thinking about you! It's true! I had a lot of work, but anyhow I thought of you! I knew, that you will write me and it was very interesting for me to receive your another letter. I would like to hope, that it is interesting for you as well to speak with me! It is a pity, that you do not live in my city. Otherwise I would invite you to the cinema!
Is it a good idea? But … … you are not in my city! Probably you want to visit Russia some day?
What do you think of it?
I yet do not know when I shall have holliday. What don't you like in a woman? What attracts you in a woman? What wife do you want in future? Should she be educated? Clever? Beautiful! Fair? Cheerful?
I think that between a man and a woman there should be understanding. Also there should be trust and physical inclination! A man and a woman should be best friends. Love begins with friendship. If friendship is strong and mutual love will also be pure and mutual! I do want to fall in love with a man! I want to be happy of this love! I want to give my smile to all people ! First of all to my lovely! Now I will distract and in 20 minutes I will continue again my letter.
So I am again at the computer. I should solve the problem with a delivery service. I bought a leather sofa for my house last week. They promised to deliver it to my house. I live on 4 floor. Our house in general has 6 floors. I can't lift this sofa myself and that's why the men will come to help to lift the sofa! I in general like to buy some things for my house! I like cosiness and cleanliness at home. Now there are a lot of services in thecity and it demands money.
Oh! I think I should send this letter now. I spent a lot of time!
Write me! I will be waiting for your letter and pictures. Thanks, Tatyana.

Letter 6

Good Day!
I am again glad to read your letter! I am grateful to you for good answers! How start turbine generator? I hope that good. Right now I am listening to a song. It is a Russian song ! It is the group "TATU". The song called “ do not trust, be not afraid, do not ask ”. It is a pity, that you do not understand Russian. It is an interesting song! It has a good sense! I have a similar voice and I like to sing this song! I sing this song at home. I have karaoke and I sing often! I think you should listen to their song "gomenasai" both it is in English and it is pleasant for me too! I think that you can find songs in the Internet and listen. I in general like music with some sense.
I think you have guessed also that I like you! I do not want to hide it from you and I think that it right to speak about what you feel! Really?
Anders, everything about you is very interesting for me. Please, write me as much as possible. Write me about your day, what did you do? I am very much interested in you. I often ask myself if we will meet some day? Would you like to meet me? I think, that I will be able to find enough money for our meeting. I probably would want to come to the Sweden and stay with you some time. Or probably you would like to come to Russia? Please, tell me more what do you think of our meeting? I travelled only to Turkey. I have never been to the Sweden and franckly speaking I am afraid to go to another country a little. The Sweden is far and I should be sure that I will be in safety and that you will take care of me.
It is very interesting for me to see how you live. I read your letters and I understand much about you and your life but anyhow I would like to meet you so that to know you better. I am an independent woman. I am capable to make a decision. And I should know if you would like to meet me seriously? I feel that you are a good man. You attracted my interest. I am purposeful woman and if both of us want to meet I willll think of it more seriously!
Well, I should go now. I will be thinking of you. I should go today to
a supermarket and buy products. Write me soon. Send pictures. Tatyana.

Letter 7

My Anders,
How are you? You have eliminated problems with turbine generator? I liked to see your pictures today. At you the remarkable daughter!
On Saturday I went to my parents’ place. I talked to my relatives about you. Now all my family knows about you. I told them about you. Mum asked how old you are and my daddy asked if you have children. I answered their questions and we spoke about you night. I told my family that you are a good person. After supper we spoke about you only with my mum. You are probably can guess, that there can be some secrets between mum and daughter and nobody can understand a daughter better than her own mother. Mum ,however, warned me that I shouln’t rush to begin any relations with you. And I understand it myself. I said that you are a kind and decent man. If we have relations with you I think it will be necessary for you to speak with my daddy! He is also a very good person. He takes care of our family very much. My brother also helps my parents sometimes. Everyone wish me only happiness. I told my mum, that I want to go to the Sweden and to see how you live. Mum asked if you invited me to the Sweden. I told, that you would be very glad, if we meet and spend some time together.
Dearest Anders, I also want you to come to me to Russia. I would like you to meet my family very much.
I should tell you that it will be probably expensive to visit the Sweden. Here in our city the average salary of the worker is 250-300 dollars a month. I get approximately 500-550 dollars a month and it is good money for our city. Anyhow, I think, that I will be able to come to the Sweden myself. Tell me if you want me to come to the Sweden first? I want to see how you live, your country. If everything is ok I will move to the Sweden and visit you first. Are you ready to meet me? We can know each other better. I will not trouble you much if I come? Where will I stay? Is it expensive to live in the Sweden? I mean foodstuffs and living in a hotel?
May be I can stay at your place? Write me about it. OK? I speak with you very seriuosly. You arose my interest and I want to meet you. We are already adult people. I have already worked enough and I think that I can afford this trip. If you want me to come to you then I will choose the most convenient time for me. I should solve questions at my work before. Besides I should get ready myself and prepare my family that I will be absent for some time. I also should find out more information about the trip.
I asked about a meeting of you in the last letters. I ask you all these questions once again. As I should be sure that that you want to meet. I was not in the Sweden before. Also it is serious step to meet you. I hope you understand me.
It seems to me that you are the man I have been looking for a long time. You are kind and gentle. You are a loyal and honest man. I am sure that you the man of your word and you can be a good partner for life for me. I think that everything will be ok with us.
I shall write to you if will be necessary contact with Nathalia.
Well, I am finishing my letter now. I will wait for your letter. Warm kisses, yours Tatyana.

Letter 8

Anders, I am glad that you want to meet me in person and that you invite me to the Sweden. I really want to see your country and your way of life. I should see it with my own eyes, and I think, that we will have happy time together. We are now very good friends and I should tell that our friendship can grow in love. You are really very important for me. In my life now there is a good friend and this is you. I am always honest with my friends and I never betray them. Besides, I do hope, that we will like each other! I really want that there will be love and warm feelings between us. I want that between us there will be also trust and understanding. I respect you very much, and I love you as a man! You are the type of a man which I would like for a husband. I think that the place you live is a very good place to live and to have a family.
Tell me please how you imagine your future? What do you want in future and whether you want me to be the part of your future? Would you like your future wife to with you up to the end of your life?
I want to marry only once and to be happy.
My Anders, I do want to meet you as soon as possible. I treat things with reality and I think, that is necessary to prepare for this well. As you understand, I should speak about it with my boss and with my parents as well. I think, that everything will be fine and then I should define time when I will be getting ready for our meeting. I have already been to Turkey before and I know that it is necessary to be ready well so that to travel to another country. I think that I am ready to meet you. I will start to prepare for this! OK? First of all I will speak with my boss and family and then I will go to the travel agency. I already know some rules for visiting, but I think, that they differ for trip to the Sweden. I will inform you later how will be things with all these preparations. OK? When precisely in the summer you would want that I have arrived to you? I understand that you also work but I think that if you cannot take a short vacation anyhow it will not prevent us. I can stay at your house while you are at work and then in the evening we can be alone and talk much!
I will not prevent you from work! On the contrary I want to inspire you. I would kiss you every day when you come home and I would embrace you! Would you kiss me? We also could go for a walk! I do not want you to spent much money on me. It’s difficult to earn money and that’s why we could simply stay at home and I would cook a supper for you! Also I can help you to do some housework and I can keep everything in order! I already dream of our meeting.
Well, than I will start to take some steps to our meeting. I will do all correctly so that we could meet sooner. OK? I should take all things myself.
I think, that our meeting is necessary for both of us!
I send my kisses to you! Also say Hello from Russia to your friends and family!
Write me soon! I will think of you and dream of our meeting. Only yours, Tatyana.

You know, I have already started to take some steps to our meeting. I decided, that first of all I will speak with my parents.
My mum understands me very well and consequently I told my mum that I want to travel to the Sweden to meet you. Mum listened to me very attentively and she asked about my plans. I have told mum, that for me it is necessary to create a family. I have also told that I want to be happy and she understood my desire to live in the Sweden. I have explained that there is a higher standard of living in the Sweden and I can have the best life there.
After some silence mum told that I am already an adult woman, and I have the right to build my life myself and to make a decision. I should build my happiness myself together with the person I love.
For my mum the most important thing is my happiness. Also mum asked never forget about our family. Mum told, that she loves me very much and she won’t be able to go through, if something bad happened to me.
I told, that I will do everything right. I, certainly, love my family very much, my mum, daddy, brother and I will never forget them. I told, that if I have an opportunity I always will come to visit them and always help them.
Anyhow, I at present in Russia and I reflect on all the things. I really want to build my life, and I am sure that I do right. Then we went to speak with the daddy.
My daddy as the engineer of construction always respects well planned actions. He respects accuracy and confidence and consequently he told me, that anyhow I should meet you in person in the Sweden and see your way of life, your house, your country. I really agree, that only after that I can draw some conclusions on a real life in the Sweden together with you. I should clear up my feelings. Both of us should understand all things between us. Right?
The daddy, certainly, worries about me very much. Anyhow, Sweden is far but I told, that you will take care of me. Anyhow, my parents have approved my choice and they have told, that will not be against my going to the Sweden for some time and visit you. I was very glad, because I wanted to hear these words from parents! I should have support of my parents.
They are already adult people and they have lived a long life, and they understand many things better than me. So, I got the approval of my parents! I even showed them your pictures! I printed them on the printer at work! Daddy will also invite you to Russia.
I promised, that when I will arrive in the Sweden I will contact my parents my parents and tell them the address of my location. Now I can go easy to the agency of travel and find out all details so that to go to the Sweden.
I shall plan to arrive to you in June. OK? I heard that official registration of papers for travel to the Western Europe occupies 2-3 months.
Tomorrow I plan to go to the agency of travel, and I will write you all details as soon as I find them out.
To me that is pleasantly that you wish to help me with a trip to you! I dream of you much! I want our feelings to develop and we have serious relations. Will you allow me to call you BELOVED ANDERS? I also would like you to call me BELOVED TATYANA!
