Letter(s) from Tatyana to Warren (Sweden)

Letter 1

Hello Warren right now I am even more than sure that first of all you looked at my photo and only then you opened my letter. It's understandable. Now you wonder what for I am writing to you. I am looking for a friend, for a good man. I have friends, hobby, good job and I am not just wasting my time. Warren, may be I am looking for you and you are the only one I need - who knows. You probably want to ask me why in the internet. So there are many reasons. Nowadays with all our daily living needs, wants and problems, with all the twists and turns, to speak figuratively, of today's world, we often forget about the meaning of our life. We think so much and so deep in our mind about the future that we completely forget about our present. As a result, we are not living in the future as well as in the present. We follow different stereotypes, which were laid down by several generations, which we have never chosen. Probably nobody can say for sure why it should be only this way and no other. I do not know yet if the internet is a good way to find the second half of my heart, but nothing will stop me to try. Why not? Every single moment we dream about happy future which must be full of joy and pleasures at sacrifice of our current time. Certainly, if someone says that nobody can force us to live like this, in any event he will be completely right. So what I am trying to say that our life is in our hands. It is my first letter and hope a lot that it wouldn't be the last one at the same time. Answer me, I'm not asking too much. Give me a chance to become to be a friend. Let it be… Do not sit and wait for a miracle, and keep in your mind that everything that happens to us, all is made for the best future. See you Warren. Sending you a big hello from Russia! Victoria

Letter 2

Hello Warren. You answered me and made my day! It's like a first conversation, our first dialog. In some ways it's much more easier to write - you must agree with it or what are you doing here :) here I can be myself. I do not have an internet at home. I and my mother are renting apartment so it is unreachable for us. But this world is growing up and even in our small town we have a couple of internet caf?. So do not be sad or mad on me if I am not writing to you immediately. I would like to know more about you and of course I will give you some information about myself. So my name is Victoria. In our country we used to have three names. First name-it's how everybody is calling me, then second name or surname - it's our family's name and a middle name - it's my fathers name. Nice to meet you Warren. I am 25 years old. I live in Ivanovo - very small town, but very nice and calm. It's hard to find it on the map of our huge Russia but if you would like to find me you'll have to go about one thousand kilometers on the north from Moscow. It's not really far according to the whole country ))). We live together with my mother. My father died when I was a very young girl so I don't really remember him. Mommy says that I am a good copy of him and even our characters are very much the same. I have other relatives but we are not so close to each other. Tell me more about your family and you life. Hope to hear from you soon. Take care, bye Warren! Victoria.
I have a pair of questions:
1) you were married before?
2) marriage How many lasted?
3) whether there are children at you?

Letter 3

Hello again, Warren. How are you today?
Thank you for your letter. You should know that your attention means a lot for me. Today I finished my work earlier than usually. Today in our country we have a holyday. It is a day of love, devotion and family. Especially at such moments I feel myself so lonely. My best friend Helen already has two kids and good husband and she is of my age! I love children but I'm not hurrying up. It's not a question of being afraid of any responsibility, I just don't feel myself strong enough for it and also I want my children to have a real father. I won't let myself repeat my own childhood. But enough about this. By the way I did not tell you yet about my job. I work as a waitress in the restaurant in the center of our town. Sometimes it's a very hard to keep working the whole day but I do love my job. I like the opportunity to communicate with people. They often come here to celebrate something and bring lots of positive emotions. At busy days we have to run back and forth with huge trails saying "Going out" or "coming in". In the evening when we clean the kitchen we often sing together. But sometimes I feel myself really tired from all of this. I have to smile when I am ready to cry, I have to be polite even if my guests are already drunk, I have to wear black and white uniform and always keep my hears done. I often dream to seat there as a guest and to be able to order everything from the menu. But I think it's just two different sides and it supposes to be everywhere. I didn't tell you that I finished university at the faculty of international relations. I also studied English and French. I tried to find something connecting with my profession but in our town they don't need such a specialist. I couldn't leave my mother and stayed here as a waitress. I build my destiny by myself and there is nothing wrong with it. Oh, Warren, I wrote you so much…now it's your term. Keep working. Wish you to have a good day and take care.
Victoria
