Letter(s) from Valentina Sokolova to John (USA)

Letter 1

Hello John!!!
My name is Valentina. I am very excited that I have caught your attention on the web site. I am totally new to this kind of communication and I hope that my expectations will be proved to be correct!
I'll try to introduce myself briefly now and I hope you would be interested in the further exploration of each other.
So,I am 37 years old, divorced. No children. I live in Ukraine, Zaporozhiye. I lost any hope to renew my private life here and when I ran across web address in the women magazine, I decided to try my fortune through the Internet. I am looking for a man for whom family will be on the first place in his priority list and who knows that attention and care are vital for a woman. I am ready to become faithful friend, passionate lover and caring wife! As I have not become a mother myself (though I still hope that I will) I will be happy to become a good friend for the kids of my partner (if he has got any).
I am sending you my photos and I hope that you will be interested in getting known each other better. It will be a big pleasure for me to answer any questions of yours.
John, wish you a lovely day and hope to hear from you soon!

With the best regards,
Valentina

Letter 2

Hello my dear John!!!
I am very glad to get a response from you!
May be we are on the right way towards our dreams and hopes;)
So how are you doing today? I hope you stay in nice mood and high spirits!!!!
Thank you so much for your letter! I was very glad to get it from you!
It was very interesting for to me to know about you a little!
You are very interesting man and i would be very glad to know about you more and more with every letter!I think we have much in common and good chance to be together, don't you think?
Thank you so much for your wonderful photo, i like it very much!
You are very handsome man!I like you warm smile and magic eyes it is attract me like magnet!
Well in order to make a better picture of me, I will try to tell something about me, though I even don't know where to start:)
So, what do I do for fun...well, that depends on my mood, weather and lots of circumstances. I do like outdoors activities... starting from the sun bathing and finishing with snowball playing. During the whole year I attend the swimming pool as I am a real "gold fish";) I adore everything what is connected with water and swimming is my favorite sport...
though to be more detailed- this is the only sport I go in for:)
As for the rest kinds of sport- I am an active TV watcher :D
I must tell you that I am a normal woman and I do like to hang on the phone:)
I have got few girlfriends, which whom we can talk for hours gossiping about some nice trifles:)
Reading- that takes separate and very important place in my life. Also I can add, that I am easy -going person and can be busy with lots of things...
Just because I can't lie on the sofa still:)
John, What can I say about my character??? Normal character... with my own pluses and minuses.
I do like nice jokes, but from time to time I can poison my speech with sarcasm. But I am struggling with this my feature .
(Hm, I put myself a big plus now, cause I try to judge myself objectively and it turned out to be pretty hard..:) ) Values.
Family- that is the basis of everything!!!! My family broke when I was 13- dad started drinking- and he was the God for me and when he died when I was 25 and I decided that I won't repeat this kind of experience. I am fine when people drink occasionally but I fall into panic when I see that a man can't put himself into some kind of frames.
So at the present moment my family consist of a women army:) these are my sister Katerina my mom and my grand mom.
Background...I got Bachelor's Degree in Marketing and now I work as a Senior Sales Lady in the big clothes shop which is located in a big shopping center called Ukraine.
As I have already said I am serious in my intentions. I don't want to write for several years ...If we see that we match each other, I will take off the profile at once and we will plan a meeting.
Well, Probably you are already tired to read all this. Dear, Write me back if you are interested. I hope to hear from you soon. Have a good day
Valentina

Letter 3

Hello my dear John!!!

Thank you very very much for writing me back!! You seem to be a nice guy and I did really enjoy reading your letter.
I am really serious looking for a partner and I hope we are on the same track;)
After my unsuccessful marriage I was alone for a pretty long period of time and now I feel that I am totally ready to open my heart. I tried to find someone in Ukraine, but I understood that I am really tired of drinking problems and aggressiveness. As I have already written to you I ran across the web address in the magazine, I looked around and decided to try my fortune here! I do believe in love!
I am sure there are good guys who will take care of their woman and who will love her and who will value and see the care and attention he is given.
I know what I am talking about. I know the law... if you want to be given something - be ready to give first. I have much to give. What I am trying to tell you is that if you find me not the woman you are looking for, just tell me and we could stay friends. Don't waste either your time or mine.
All right, enough about lyrics:)
Thank you so much for you nice letter dear and for your warm words, i was co happy to get it from you!
I am waiting for your letter very much, with big impatience!
And when i saw you mail in my box, i was the happiest person in the world!
How was your day? I hope everything went smoothly and nothing upset you.
As for me, my day was a little bit tough as the new clothes arrived and I was busy like a bee accepting the boxes, putting all the labels, arranging everything on the shelves. I know this sounds funny, but I hate shops))))
Spending the most time at work in the shopping center I just dream about my sofa in front of the TV, but these are only dreams as I can't stay still even for a second:)
BY the way, John , what is your favorite way to spend free time?? How do you relax?
Well, I will close my letter for the moment, but I must tell you that I have already started waiting for your response!
Wish you a nice day and hope to hear from you very very soon! Sincerely yours, Valentina

Letter 4

Hello my dear John!!

So tell me how is that on that part of the earth??? How is the weather?? What are your plans for the coming week ends????
I want to tell you that you are free to ask me whatever appears in your head and I will answer you willingly:)))
I miss your pics so much and i would be very glad to get it from you as soon as possible!
Ok let's leave seriousness and talk about something easy:) I will start first:)
What kind of things do really bring you pleasure and excitement??
For example, I fall down into an excellent mood immediately if I see snow. You know, when you wake up in the morning, and look out of the window you see fresh snow covered everything around!!! The things look so virgin at the moment!!!! I do live in a country where we have real winters but despite this, I can't stop admiring such kind of scenery, like a child, during the whole my life:)
I do like watching care racing!
All those cars or motor -bikes, with wild pictures or tattoos if I can name them so... and I admire those people who are not afraid of the speed and who have got those unbelievable skills to be a master of the motor!
Good music is also vital for me when I lack energy or some emotions!
You can always hear music in my flat! I do like different styles...starting from Enigma and finishing with Prodigy:) Everything depends on my mood.
Usually, before I go to bed, I turn on either saxophone or some nature sounds...
You won't believe how it helps to kill stress of the day and to go into deep sleep:)
What about you? What brings smile to your face? what calms you down and vice versa fills you in with energy? How do you kill stress???
John , I do want to know everything about you... Please, you are welcome to write a novel about yourself:)))
And I will close by now and start counting hours will our next "meeting"!
Sending you a kiss, your Valentina

Letter 5

Hello my dear John!!!
How are you today??? I hope this letter will find you safe and sound!!! I am fine and I must tell you that you took my breath and totally intrigued me!
I feel myself like a school-girl:) Thank you very much for those emotions!!
I have not experienced anything like that for so long time!!!
What have you been doing during those days???
Thank you so much for your nice letter i was very glad to get it form you!
I miss your pics so much and I would be very glad to get it from you as soon as possible!
My day was a little bit stressful!! The shop where I work is pretty busy due to nice goods and liberal prices. That's why, it is very popular among people especially now, during the crisis.
And as you can guess, not all the customers are good.
Today there was very unpleasant incident. A lady was caught trying to steal a skirt. Thanks God she was caught but it was a long and very ugly procedure with calling to the police, arranging all the documents and so on. As I am a Senior in the shop - I am responsible for everything in this kind of situation.
So, the mood during the rest of the day was absolutely spoilt. But I must tell you, that all negative emotions flew away at the moment I saw your letter in my inbox!!!
Stress was dismissed by a broad smile and nice thoughts came into my head. You did really make me forget everything!
By the way, tell me something, what irritates you most of all?
What trifles or situations can shake your mood???
As for me, I am irritated by rude people, Mc.Donald's, when our local government turns off water or light in the apartments, and I hate to be late! I don't know what must happen to me and that will make me late to the appointment... and of course I don't like when people are late to the appointments with me! My girlfriends suffer regularly from my comments on them being late!:)
Well, John, I think I will close my letter for the moment.
Please, don't wait too much to write me back! You should know that I am really looking forward to your letter!!
Kisses, Valentina

P.S.: Honey, please don't forget to send me your pics:)

Letter 6

Greetings to you my dear John!
John, how have you been? It seems to me ages have passed since I got your last letter. I know I am impatient, but I can't throw you out of my head. Just thinking of you constantly. And I greedily wait for your response!!!
Tell me everything what is happening to you on that side of the world!!! The whole day today I wanted to ask you, do you watch news on TV??? I know , strange question, but it appeared in my head out of the blue. What concerns me, I avoid watching news.
I don't know how it is going in your country, but in Ukraine, they inform strictly about something bad!!! No positive news at all!
Especially the last few years!!! So after watching all the nightmares which take place around the world, I will sick and disappointed and start philosophical thoughts.. something like, why the world is so unfair?
Or why the God let wars, mass illnesses and so on.
Thank you so much for your wonderful letter, i like it very much and I am waiting for it all time with big impatience! You are wonderful and I like you more and more with every day!
Honey, i miss your pics so much, when you will send me it?
Tomorrow I have a meeting with my girl friends. We didn't have opportunity to get together for a long time. And finally everybody has got couple of free hours and a bunch of news to gossip about. I plan to tell them about you:)
I do really feel wings behind and I want to share my emotions with close to me people:) I am sure they will be happy for me:)and us:)
All right, darling, I will finish by now.
John, I kiss you tenderly and hope to hear from you as soon as possible.
Your Valentina

Letter 7

Hi my dear John, How are you doing today , my sweetheart??
What have you been busy today/ yesterday with???
I hope you were chased by nice and pleasant events only!!!
I have read your last letter with interest. I understand your feelings very much. It is really hard to find a person whom you can trust. . You know it always a lot of different people in every nation - bad people and good people. It is pity that you met bad Ukrainian girl. I will do my best to show you that there are a lot of really good people in my country.
Honey, i miss your pics so much and I would be very glad to get it from you in your next letter!
As for me, I am fine: smiling and sparkling and feeling like a feather:) I won't be shy and tell you that you are the reason of my sudden ability to fly:)
Yesterday, it was an absolutely divine evening. Meeting with my dear girls is always a pleasure. We have been knowing each other since school, so by today this period can be called "an AGE":))))
I don't have lots of friends, whom I can call true once, but those girls are like my sisters!!! So- cozy place, nice hot tea with honey-piece of cake (today I am executing myself for those calories:))) ) and lots of news to share. The most important thing from my side was our meeting in the web and that I am really excited and hopeful for possible future together!! I will definitely introduce you to my girls.
And I must tell you, I saw really happiness in their eyes for me as my heart had finally melted when I got involved with you:)
All right,John, enough of revelation:) I will be waiting for your answer with great impatience! Lots of kisses, Valentina

Letter 8

Hello my dear John,
It is so pity that you didn't write so many days, i missed you so much and I start to think that you forget about me or found another women!
How are you today, my sweetheart???
I hope you are fine and smiling at the very moment, as I do really hope that you are waiting for my letters with the same impatience as I look forward for yours;)
How was your day??? What are the news???
What are the plans for the coming week end???
John, I must confess that with each and every letter I become attached to you more and more !!!! I started dreaming about us and trying to imagine what our life together would be like!
And I have to tell you that my "pictures" come out very bright and pleasant:) Be honest to me, do you feel the same?? Are you dreaming about me?? I started this topic because, as I have already written you, I am really serious in my intentions to build a family and I am serious in the approach. I decided to start looking for the language courses, as if everything works out between us and we decide to meet and the meeting will be successful (at this point I am more than sure) I want to be ready to join you as soon as possible. My English is rather primitive at the moment and I am using the Interpreter services now, but I guess in the nearest future we'd plan meeting and developing our relationships.
And adjusting in the new environment will be easier and faster for me if I understand the language of the country and in general what is going on around. John, do you agree with me?
I plan to find some express courses, in order they could teach me spoken language.
And writing and reading will come later. John, what do you think? Does it make sense?
Well, today, is a pretty slow day. Nothing important is going on.
My granny comes to visit us tonight. She will stay for 2 days with us. She lives in a country side, but due to age it is pretty difficult for her to come more often and she loves her place and is always worried about her tomatoes in the yard or dog or something else:)
You know, how funny old people can be. But I must tell you, she is the best grand mom in the world:)
She is very very very kind and never pokes her nose into other's affairs and of course never try to teach how to live a life ( agree, that this is really unusual for old people)!
So we are going to have a family dinner tonight. Mom, my sister and granny. I do like such evening as they are always cozy and tasty:)
I will tell grandma about us, as she constantly worries about me being alone.
So today I am going to please my old lady with the good news:) I hope you are not against:)
All right, my darling, I will close by now and I send you million of kisses!!!
Faithfully yours, Valentina

P.S I miss you so much like crazy and I would be very glad to get the pics from you in your next letter!

Letter 9

Hello my beloved man John!
How have you been today??? I hope you are fine and feel safe and sound!!!
I must tell you that you are the first thing...sorry... the first thought I have in the morning is about you and you are the last picture I imagine before I fall asleep... I am just constantly thinking about you and you know what??
I do like this feeling.. I do like to have somebody I want to think about!
And the thought that "This Somebody" thinks about me too warms me from inside..
Actually I feel like I have some wings behind my back!!!:) WOW! What a terrific feeling..
I must add that during the day from time to time I catch myself on the fact that I am imagining different life situations with you taking active part there:)
I wonder how would it be to do food shopping with you?? Will, John, you stay next to me and say constantly: when are we going?? When are we finished ? let's go .. Or may be you will take an active part in choosing apples and herbs?? Or how would it be to spend a lazy Sunday with you??? Anyway, all those thoughts make me smiling and make my mood for the whole day!!!:)
Honey, thank you so much for your nice words, i like it so much, i was touched!
Honey, i am ready to make the new step in our future!I wish to have kids so much, i think it is the best gift which we can have in our life!I agree with you that two it will be very nice!!!!
Honey, i miss your pics so much and I would be very glad to get it from you as soon as possible!
It is a pity but my English is very low, but I wish to start to learn it as soon as possible, because I understand how it is important for us and our future, what do you think about it?
What is happening here.. nothing... the days look like all the same. Home-work-home...
But I am always in a hurry to check if I have got a letter for you and this brings me into a nice mood!!! I must say- you are wonderful!! And I am happy that I was in time to cross your road!:) I don't know, may be tomorrow I will go to movies... if someone from my girls would like... Today on my way home I am going to pop around my sister's place... Who knows, may be she has some gossips to talk about:) By the way she constantly asks about you and us;)))
All right darling, it starts getting dark outside. I will finish by now.
I kiss you tenderly, hug you warmly and whisper your slowly: I MISS YOU!!!
Yours and only yours Valentina

Letter 10

Hello my dear John!!!
I think of being with you all the time. I imagine going with walks with you and out to dinner. I also imagine you with me, wherever I go. I miss you! I know we could be happy every day, because I want to be with you. I want to do all the things you like to do.
I want to learn how to please you. It does not matter what we do, as long as we are together.
Sweetheart, how have you been these days??? I hope you are fine and stay in nice mood!! The weather is so unfair to us here... It looks like nature went kookoo...
I wanted to ask you, do you see dreams while sleeping???
I do! Almost each and every night... it is funny, but whenever I go asleep, I 'll definitely see something.. sometimes, really stupid things..
like chickens, or some people who passed away... sometimes the dreams are colored and nice- like cartoons! By the way , do you like cartoons??
Yes, I know we are grown ups, but I must confess that Tom and Jerry is my favorite:)
Thank you so much my dear for your warm letter i like it very much, i wish to have it it real life so much and I hope it is will come true very soon!And we will be the happiest in the world together!
I'd like to write a love story, the two main characters would be you and me but this story wouldn't be written only by one author, we would write it together. It would be the most beautiful love story ever and it would be ours.
If you're ready to take a pen and write this story with me, then write me back.
Yours forever, Valentina

Letter 11

John, sweetheart hello,
How are you doing today, beloved? I hope everything is going perfect and you stay in nice mood and high spirits. That is very good that you are thinking about me as I am thinking about you as well and I am more than sure that we have already met million of times in our thoughts, dreams and fantasies:) I think of you constantly, 24 hours per day.
When I open eyes in the morning, the first thing I say inside myself is : "Hi honey, how are you there without me? Wish you were here besides me in order I could give you a kiss":)) You know, each time I am thinking about you a smile appears on my face:) You make my days and I am very thankful for you for that:) But probably each fairy tale has its end and I guess that mine is over. I must teach myself to forget my sweet John as being disconnected right now is equal to death. The translator told me today that I have few paid letters left and afterwards I have to renew the payment for the translation services.
Honey, I am not able to pay any more by myself. I am sorry for that.
I hate to show people my weaknesses but here I have no way out.
I don't have funds to support our communication. I have paid for the language courses,counting on my coming salary, but we were announced today that we won't get anything in time as our f*** government didn't fill in the budget ... Looks like some stupid story for people, but what can I do?
Nothing! Now everybody has one nice answer: People, be patient. It is crisis now.
Please, don't leave me! could you help me to cover the translation expenses for the moment? Just for the time I get something paid at work...
of course, I can't keep you without your wish.
The only thing I can say for sure is that I love you... I was always open in my feelings and thoughts and now with this bloody situation everything ruined... everything. My hopes, my dreams... our hopes and our dreams... all this was built by us together! I know this f...
language difference is a problem and I knew that but I know what I am ready for. I know that I am ready to struggle for the happiness with my men and learning his language is the less what I can do. I know a lady who was leaving to Australia to get married knowing no one word in English. She had vocabulary and nothing else... and you know what? She is forgetting Russian by now! Neither she nor her husband were not afraid of this.
This is just a matter of time, practice and being in the native speaking surrounding. That's it. Being far away. Well, darling, I am not putting any limits on you... I am not asking you anything like stay at home and look at my picture only. Both of us are adults and I understand everything. Remember, I am not 5 years old. I just didn't want to discuss this with you. And I was not ever going to open this theme. I was just expecting for us to plan our meeting and seeing that we were given the chance from above to meet each other in such a Big World and... Oh my... I love you and I know that all the hardships can be overcome. One just have to start moving from the dead spot. Little steps make big way. And I was ready to do all this... leave everything if needed and just be with you. And before ending my letter, please answer my question, are many women in your country ready to do at least 1 inch of this way???? I am not sure in this:( Of course everything depends on you and I have nothing to do but to wait for your reply. Just remember, I was more than serious in everything we were talking about. I do love you.Many sweet kisses to you with love, forever your Valentina.

Letter 12

Hello my love John,
I am so much frustrated!!
I explained you the situation... I am in a deep shit an I don't know how not to loose you under this circumstances!!
John, please, help me to cover the translation expenses at least until I get the salary. I think this will be only this month!! I beg, you... give us the chance!!
John, lovely... don't leave me. I promise you will never regret about us together... .. I don't know what to write Of course this looks ridiculous and I will understand if you refuse from "us"... I just hope you will give "us" the chance I am so much confused that we had to face this problem I feel myself so ashamed!!
Bloody Ukraine!!! I am so desperate!!! I hate myself at the moment as I don't like to ask anybody anything. But I have no way out We have to stay in contact until we plan our meeting.
And my desire to be with you is higher than my dignity. John, could you help me to cover the translation expenses for this month?? In order we could plan you coming here! It is 90 USD for 20 letters (10 yours and 10 mine) or 220USD unlimited quantity of letters. Actually If I pay one by one letter it is 5 USD per letter. But if I take a package- there is a discount I beg your pardon for this so awful letter, but I am really in such despair I have just started being happy with our plans for Future, started flying because I have found you and we both fell in love with each other... And now everything ruined:( John, lovely, please, give us the chance)
Love you so much! I promise you will never regret about having met me
Yours only and only yours Valentina
