Letter 1

I am very happy that you became interested in me. I was not sure that you would right me.
Thanks that you found time for the reply. I think you have lots of questions for me and i will try to tell you everything about myself. And i hope you will do the same and tell me everything about yourself.
I don't know with what shall i start, but i hope you will understand me. My name is Ekaterina. I am 30. May be you will be expressed when you will learn that i don't live in your country.
I live in Russia! But i hope it doesnt scare you, because i am the same woman like all women in different countries all over the world.
I am a person with the same heart and soul. I was trying to put my profile from Russia, but i couldn't and made it from other country.
I was born in a very small city Pavlovo only with 100 000 people. I studied there in the middle school. After i finish the school i went to the medical colledge in Nizhni-Novgorod, because it was very hard to get education in my town.
I graduated from it only with excellent marks and continued to study at the Medical University.
And also during study I earned additionally in small firm.
Then i stayed to live in Nizhni-Novgorod. Now i work as a dentist in a small polyclinic for about 3 years.
Gene, I use computer at work because i don't have Internet at home. At work i can use it free.
That's why it's better for me to write from clinic.
But it doesn't depend on me, another person also must work at the computer.
I have good relationship with her but she let me to use the computer only when she is not busy with it.
Otherwise i can visit Internet-cafe and send you letters from there.
My new friend. please answer these questions:
1. Do you like your job?
2. Whats your favorit film?
3. What music do you like?
4. Have you ever had a foreign friend? I'm thankful for your answers.
You may not answer if you don't want. But in my next letter i will answer all your questions.
I will tell you what musik and films i prefer. I send you my picture.
Hope you will like it. Looking forward for your reply.
Your new friend Ekaterina!

I send you my photo, from my last job

Letter 2

Hello Gene! How is your day?
I hope you were really glad to get my e-mail, because i was very happy to get yours.
Thank you very much. Do you want to know how i write you e-mails? During the whole working day i write small parts when nobody works at the computer. I work at a children apartement.
If you want to know more about my job i will tell you. Just ask me.
O! I promise to tell you what music i prefer. Nowi have some free time and will tell you with pleasure about my interests.
I like different music. Everything depends on my mood.
I like classic: Dunaevski and Chajkovsky. I like also instrumental music.
It helps to relax and to have a rest, i like to thik while listening it. I also prefer to listen guitar, masterpieces of Djoh Satriani.
I like Pink Floid, they are wonderful.
It's a great band. I like Madonna, Robby Williams, George Michael and so on.
There are so many musicians in the USA! But i like russian pop-stars too: Filipp Kirkorov, Valeriya and music-bands: Chaif, Splin. But unfortunately you don't know them.
I prefer to watch movies too.
There are not so many good russian films, i like films of Tarkovsky, Konchalovsky, Michalkov- film directors.
My favorite movies are The Siberian barber and Tired with the sun.
Theese are the greatest masterpieces of russian cinematography. Amtrican filma are very popular in my country, i like them to and some americans stars also. Gladiator- courage man, Mel Gibson- goog actor.
My favorite films are The Sixth Sense, Rainman, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Gone with the wind, The Magnificent Seven, The Godfather, Groundhog Day and others.I like Bruce Willis, Al Pacino,Kevin Costner,Samuel L.Jackson, Djulia Roberts,Oii Hanks, DemiMoore, Kevin Spacey.

What can i add about me? Gene, I was married one good man, but we don't have children.
I met him when i worked as a dentist in other place. He was one of my patients.
When i married him i stopped working, because my husband wanted woman to take care of the house and he earned money himself.
I was 27 when married him. He worked at the oil-company and often had lots of business trips.
During one of them he had a car accident and died.
About 2 years i didn't want to see anybody near me but later i understood that i don't want to be alone and i need a man who will take care about me. But i don't want to remember it up any more.

I have some friends, but my best friend is Elena. We are friends since we were 17.
She is a real friend and we always help each other. She has a kind heart.
We are ready to give everything for our friendship. I am happy to have such friend because we can found the real friend very rare.
We became friends at colledge then we entered the same university.
I live alone in a flat, where i lived with my husband. There is living room, bathroom and dining room.
It's small but i feel comfortable here.
It's close to my work and it usually takes me only 20 minutes to reach the clinic.
Often when it's not late and the weather is ok i walked to my work. Sometimes i go by bus but i don't like it.
Buses are usually overfilled and it's not comfortable.

Can i ask you, Gene, some more questions? Do you have a big family?
Is the nationality of the person who plays a big role in your life important for you?
If you dont wish you can not answer. But nationality isn't important for me.
I don't pay attention to theeyes, colour of the skin. And it doesn't matter where the person was born. I want to find a man with a kind heart.
I like kindness and hate anger. The most important things for me are kindness and honesty.
Without theese feelings love and harmony can not exist. Anger destroyes love.
I am ready to give all my love to the man who will also adore me.
Iam sure that the main things in every relationship are to respect and understand each other. Othr things are not so important.Only kindness, honesty and respect.
I am happy to wright you and to get your answer. And now it makes me smile.

Looking forward for your promt reply. Sencirely yours Ekaterina!
thank you for you photo.

Letter 3

Good afternoon, Gene!

Today i had so much work that i was afraid that i couldn't read and answer your letter.
And i must add that it scared me. but no i found free time and i am very happy.
Thank's for your letter.
And now i want to tell something about me. I really like cooking.
I can do in very well because my mother tought me cooking when i was a little girl.
She told me that the lady, who is good at cooking has no disadvantages, because tasty food is the way to the man.
s heart. may be she was right. I like russian dishes, and my favorite is pancakes.
do you know what is it.
A pancake is a round thin bread and we can fill it with meat, jam or some other food.
And what do you prefer to eat Gene
I dont like to talk about my father, it hurts me, but i must do it. I have never seen him.
My mum told me that he left us when i was a child. That's why i don't remember him.
And i never asked my mum, because i am not interested in my dad anymore.
He did wrong when he left my mother and me. I have a question for you how many devorses are in your country
In Russia it happens very often.
A lot of man are not interested in family life.
After my dad left us. vy vother didnt marry anymore, that's why i dont have brothers or sisters.
I love children very much.
Children are our future, they make us happy.
If i have children, i will love them more than my life.
I don't know how many children i want to have, this desicionmust be accepted with the future father of my children.
My husband wanted 2 children but because of his business we didn't have them.

Dear Gene, I would like to talk to you by phone to hear your voice but unfortunately
At me have stolen my cell phone. Plese give me your full number with the country code and i'll call you as soon as i find the opportunity to do it.

it's a pity but i have to finish my letter here.
Looking forward for your reply, yours Ekaterina.

Letter 4

Hello my dear friend Gene! I hope you are not against that i call you so.
Thank you for your letter.
Everyday that ifeel thati want to get your letter more and more.
My mood rises up when i receive your mails.
And when i am in a good mood my little patients shout less:)
That's why healthe teeth of the children now depends on your letters :)

Gene, by the way, when i came to work today i was in a very bad mood, because my friend became ill and was taken to the hospital.
She cought a flue and her temperature is very hight- 39.
It's rather dangerous, but i hope that everything will be fine.

Unfortunately she has a birthday today, she is 29 and she has to bring this day at the hospital.
Itold with the doctor and i was let to spend evening with her.
In the evening i will bake a cake and buy some baloons and will go to visit her. I want her to be happy at her birtyday.
This is my best friend she works with me at the polyclinic.
I have only 2 friends-Elena and Veronika. Elena is in the hospital and Veronika flies to the North to visit her grandmother.
They are not married and we like to go for a walk all together.
Usually we walk at the park,but we also like to spend time at Elena's garden. Her grandmother left her an old wooden house.
Earlier Elena used to live at the common flat.
In such flats there are no private kitchen,bathroom and wc. All people who live there use them.
Elena was very happy to move into the house. We like to spend time at her garden. Potatos, tomatoses and cucumbers are grown there.

I am sorry, dear... but i must finish my letter here. I would like to wright you more, but i dont have time. I will say hello to Elena from you, ok?
I want to ask what makes you happy Gene? As for me my friends and now also your letters make me very happy!

With best wishes, sincerely yours Ekaterina.

Letter 5

Hello Gene! Today I started to write you the letter in the morning as soon as I have come for work.
I have written some offers and to me patients have come. I have just cured a teeth of the little boy.
That he was not afraid, I have asked his about his dreams.
He has answered that Dreams to become adults because adults do not have problems with a teeth. :-)
It was so amusing. I often recollect the childhood. I always dreamt To become adults as soon as possible.
As each child I believed, that adults in general do not have problems. I liked to dream in the childhood and I love we dream now.
Certainly, the world of dreams the illusory world, but we live actually, therefore to dream it is necessary very seldom :-)
It become always a pity that our dreams not a reality.
The person applies many efforts and aspires to that his the dream has come true, but not all in this life depends on us.
When the dream during long time does not come true, the dream stops to be that star, which was for you a beacon at ocean of a life which shined Your way.
But anyhow, I think, that it is impossible to live without dreams and hopes. When there is a dream, the life is filled with sense.
Dreams - those things which do us by people, it Distinguishes us from fauna.
Dreams bring a variety in a usual and grey life.
Dreams force to think, to analyze, come to conclusion. Belief and Hope - eternal companions of our life.
Gene, you agree with me? I am surprised, that I write you all it.
I never had the person with whom I could divide the thoughts. But now I have found you, and I am very glad.
Forgive to me for my frankness. If I have told something superfluous, forgive me please.

Tell, it is pleasant to you when your friends come to your house?
It is pleasant to me very much when my friends come to me.
I like to prepare and for this reason I treat with their various tasty dishes.
Elena too well prepares, and shi often helps me.
We often prepare Various dishes also it is treated each other.
I usually like the Russian dishes - pel'menis, soups, pancakes. But I also love kitchen of the near east.

Gene, I have told to you, that I have visited Elena in hospital.
I was there approximately two hours and Elena were very happy, that I have spent its birthday together with his.
I have brought Elene a chocolate pie, flowers and balloons.
Balloons were different colours, Elene it is pleasant, when many different colours.
Wash favourite colour - dark blue.
And what colour is pleasant to you? Elena and I spoke about you. I Has told, that you are very good person.
Elena asked to send you regards and has wished good luck In my relations with you.

I will look forward your letter. Ekaterin

Letter 6

Hello my lovely friend!
Today at us weather normal, in the street warmly.
But nevertheless I do not have mood, and all because of that you have not written me the letter, I wish to receive every day from you the letter.
You can understand me? You very strongly like me.
I not when did not think, that so is possible, through the Internet so sincerely to communicate.
Now I still wish to ask you why you to me do not write?
I to you not that bad have not made, and if have made, forgive me please.
If it is difficult to you to communicate with me tell to me, I will not write then to you any more.
I simply wish to know the truth.
You very strongly like me!
Your fine lady!

Letter 7

Greetings my friend, Gene!!!! I am very glad, that you have written. Big Thanks.
You have again lifted my mood and have placed a happy smile on My person, having written to me the letter.
By the way Gene, today I went for work from the absolute Confidence, that you will write to me today.
Earlier I always went with Thought, that you possibly nevertheless have not written, but today for the first time I went with thought, that your letter waits for me.
Elena too the doctor as I and we work in one polyclinic. She the assistant to the dentist. But Elena I assistant, she helps to other dentist.
Today I will go to his in hospital once again. I hope that soon Elena will be healthy, and we will be happy to meet in ours to polyclinic.

I like to prepare and I love cleanliness, but sometimes I would like to receive simple tenderness, love and attention.
I do not wish to offend all Men. Certainly in Russia there are good men, but it seems to me that them very little.
Men often say dirty words (not standard lexicon), when speak with girls and believe, that in it there is nothing badly.
My husband concerned good people, but now it did not become.
After death of my husband, approximately in a year I wished again to try to renew relations with the man.
I had a friend. Together we well spent time. He was kind. But he liked to drink.
When he got drunk, he became absolutely other person. He spoke with me with bad and dirty words.
Time has passed and his love to alcohol became a habit. He became other person - rough and malicious.
Sometimes He beat me because of various trifles which did not like it.
And next day he talked to me as though anything bad between us was not.
I have started to be afraid his and I have left from his.
After that I did not get acquainted with other men. Now I do not trust the Russian men.
I am afraid to give my love, but to receive instead roughness.
If you have disagreements from the lady, you can apply roughness?

But I do not wish to finish the letter a bad theme for conversation.
So, Gene I will tell to you about Elena. Soon she recovers. Elena Feels well and sends regards to you.
I hope, that will be fast she at home Also will start to work. I feel lonely without his.
While it is not present, it is nobody me will share the feelings. But I am glad that I can will share the feelings with you!

I will look forward to hearing from you!! With a kiss, yours Ekaterina.

Letter 8

Hello my friend!
I was so is glad to our acquaintance that we so well communicated.

And now when I have looked at mail and you have not written to me! To me so it became sick on a shower.
You at all do not represent as it? When to you your friend does not write!

Letter 9

My fine!
I grieve, without you to me it is very heavy, on a part melancholy night breaks off my heart and mixes with grief of the shades which laugh over me because I one should struggle with a loneliness gloom. You have ceased to write to me!
Tell to me in what the reason, tell to me, what happens with you?
I thought, what between us something was, what I though something like you?
Really I was not right? Answer me!
Such silence in heart and such pain in a shower, what even seems, as if the silence speaks with me, any more to whom to tell to me as my letters are fine.
Only the silence whispers to me as my tears of grief because they help to survive pains in my heart are fine.
I do not wish to suffer more, I suffered in the life, everything too much, that I ask from you, it to write me the letter and to explain, that happens.
Let you have ceased to feel to me, but I worry, that with you there could be something.
Write to me tell to me, that with you all is good.
I so strongly wish to plunge again into the world of your sweet words, that already I can not normally sleep from anxiety any more which lives now in my soul.
I wait for you back in the heart.
Your unfortunate lady.

Letter 11

Hello my distant but dear friend Gene.
Than'k you so much for your email, it was really long-expected. And i'am very happy to get it.
I'am full of emotions that idid't have before i found you.
My heart and my mind say me that i have to tell you about all my feelings now because it's a part of our relationship and i must share it with you.
I want to add that i've spent the whole day to wright it because i want to explain clear what i think.
I don't want to offend you but i was worried that you will understand me not wright. I 'am always speaking from my heart, but sometimes one should choose the words.
I feel devastated when i cant use the computer to read your letter. I feel wonderful only when i think about you.
I felt it only when my husband was alive. And now i have such feelings again.
I have never tried it up in my life (i mean to make friends with a foreighner).
I dont know if you have a desire to start making relationship with person from other country but i hope that you want it too.
I think that people in couple must be best friends, who trust each other and share with feelings.
I am trying to wright so that you'll understand me.

I trust in God and i think i must face difficulties before i will meet my beloved man with whom i will stay all my life, valuing, loving him and taking his love, which he could give me.
Hope that my words arenor boring for you, but it's more than words-theese are my thoughts and feelings and i'am sending them to you.
I'am anxious that you will find the same feelings in your heart and that you are ready to build relationship with me. I want to know you closer.
I also want you to share your dreams, hopes and feelings with me.
I really want us become closer than simple friends.
Please don't call me stupid because i think so.

Gene, when i talk or think about you it doesn't matter what the others think.
You are very handsome for me. I mean that you are not only an attractive person but i'am also talking about the beauty of your soul, but unfortunatelly one can meat this type of beautyvery rare.
Most men have handsome appearance and bad soul. It's very important for me.
Your words show your soul. I am sure you are really beautiful and i can't express all my feelings.
I feel that we are becoming closer and i am enjoying our friendship.
I'm trying to learn everything about you and i hope you also think that our relationship can be more than simple friendship.

Today i have good news. Elena was let go home. She visited me at work.
Soon she'll start working. I was happy to know i will see her more often.
I told her about mobile car, and she was upset because she couldn't help me.
But it was ok. Our car was broken when we were in the village but it will be repaired soon and we continue to help people.

Gene, looking forward for your letter, with tender Ekaterina.

Letter 12

Hello my Gene.
how are you?
Every your mood i'll try to make better today.
And today i did't go to work i "fly" there.
I came first to the office and i was very happy the whole day.
Everybody who asked me could hear the answer that i'am so happy because everything is wonderful.
I understood but i was afraid to believe it that i have a feeling for you that i never had.
I don't know what's going on with me. I want to understand my heart.
i want to feel your breath. One can call me strange but i fell in love with your soul and heart.
Other things are not important fot me. The material world is not important.
Only the world of calmness and love.

The sun is shining today. Sun brings joy. I'am happy that i have you Gene, and you have me.
tell me about your thoughts and dreams. I want to know everything about you.
Everything!!! But yesterday my boss tell me that i will have a vacation in two weeks.
But i didn't expect it. I didnt want to spend it at home alone. I 've been waiting it for one year and now i'am not happy.
I donn't want to spend the whole month without you.
All world became dark for me. And i told myself NO It's not for me!
Yesterday evening i thought about us and i couldn't fall asleep.
And i thought what can i do for our meeting. I decided to spend my vacation together with you.
This is the only my desire now.

Today i addressed to the travel agency. I asked how much it will cost me to make the visa.
They tod me it's about 130$ and they won't giveit back even if i don't get my visa.
People from the agency also told me that i have to go to Moscow and then to visit a lot of departments (state and medical) in my own city and in Moscow.
It will takes lot's of time weeks or months because lot's of people want to get the visa and i will have to wait.
And in case i wont get the visa- i will waste my money.
But it is a standart way of getting documents. And i told that i can't wait for so long.
They told me that there is another way to if i will take the full contract that includes extra payments for the cathegory of visa, work with counsel, help with the interview in the ambassy, interview with comission insuaranse and tickets.
According to the contract the agency will prepare all my documents and buy the tickets.
It costs 395$ and the summ of the ticket, but the agency dont have any problems with agency and gives me a garanty that i'll get the visa in short time.
It will take only one week and i told that this variant passed me.

I will be prepared for the interview in the ambassy. It will help me to get the visa.
The prise of the tickets i will learn later.
I don't have money for ticket's but my exhusband had some in the bank and i will take it from his account.
So, money won't be a problem for me:). I made an application for visa and i hope that you will be happy to meet me.
I really want to present you our meating thought i'am not sure that you want it.
Can you imagine that if everything is fine we'll be together in two weeks?
Is it a real present for you? Will you be happy to spend some days with me?
Of course i understand that we know each other not very well yet.
Many years i ask myself why everything depend on money? Money is not the most important thing.
The main thing is harmony between people when they understand each other.
I am anxious to meet you! I have some money and i'll pay for everything myself.
May be you didn't expect that i'll tell this. One can wait for eternity but we don't know what gonna happen tomorrow.
May be we won't have a chance to meet any more.
I opened you my heart and my soul and i am not ashaimed of me feelings.
Loneless made me strong. I found a feeling that i never had. I am happy.

After my husband died i spend a vacation with my mum in my city.
But now i can do it with you, Gene. I am happy. And i must take this chane.
I was never so confident but i am really sure. Hope that you wont call me insolent.
But i just want to spend some happy days with you.
I don't care about the future and i am not afraid of this.
We cannot talk about future without our meeting.
Hope you feel the same and you will calm me down. my heart.
Will you be happy to meet me? Really happy?

Hope my letter will make you happy With lot's of tender Ekaterina.
