Letter(s) to Rodney (USA)

Letter 1

Hello!!!! Have a good day. I do hope you remember me because I wrote you recently and you replied to me.
I have met you on a dating site. I am sorry that I couldn't reply earlier.
You see I live in Russia and I was busy arranging all travel preparations . I was in Moscow to book my interiew for the trip to the USA, it took almost two weeks to travel to Moscow and back. You know that it is my first time I try correspondence with a man in a virtual space.
I am not a very good user of the Intenet and I do hope that I will be lucky to meet a good man.
I guess I need to explain why I do it.The thing is that I will work abroad for three months or so and I would like to meet a nice man to be my guide or just to be a good friend to spend time with while I am there. I suppose it is hard enough to live in some foreign town without friends and besides I have never been abroad. You know I've been liviving in a small town here in Russia all my life and I am just afraid to be lost.
Besides I would like to see a real life (not some TV shows) and it is impossible to see a real life without a person who knows all sides of the life. And you should also know that I don't want to live in Russia because I don't have any chances here, it is hardly possible to explain in a few words but I want you to know all my plans. While being in the USA I will be working in any shop or be babysitter in some family. I will know the details later. Besides I love English language and being in the English speaking country, it will give me a chance to improve my English.
The agency helps me to get the visa, work permission and all travel documents and they will help me to get a job. It is their business and I will pay for their service. One of my friend worked in USA for three months last year,and she was so pleased and she is going to repeat this trip again.
She has met right man in Chicago and they are good friends now and he is going to marry her if everything is all right between them.
I am coming to the USA or Canada due to the special programm for young people who want to work
abroad and I think it is the right way for me. I am lost here, and hopefully I will be able to change my life.
I am full of plans and different dreams. You should know that I have dark brown hair and brown eyes. I am sure that you will be not disappoined to meet me in the real life if we meet. At least I hope so.
Well,I am finishing this letter and I do hope to get your reply pretty soon.
Maybe after reading my letter you will find me a little crazy but I am not sure I know the right way to meet a good man without real meeting and you know it is my first try through the Internet.
I will leave my town in a few days or so to fly to Moscow again to complete all the things. It is said at the agency which arranges the trip for me that I will work all day and I think we might share evenings together to get to know each other better. If you have any interest to meet me
I will be more than happy!!!

I just don't want to be alone in the evenings, and I would like to be sure in advance that somebody waits for me! It is just a woman wish!
I will tell you all the details about me and my life. If you're also single, you may be with me for a few months or so .... Who knows???!

With best regards from Russia

Irina ( this my name )

PS I have attached photos of me so that you could have a better idea about me.

Letter 2

Hello Rodney!!! Thank you for your reply. I was very glad to see your reply in my inbox mail.
That would be right if I tell you more about me and my life because we have a chance to meet in real life and thus we need to get to know each other better and you please also tell me more about yourself, ok?

I am just a simple and ordinary girl with my own interests, hobbies and tastes.
I guess I will start from telling you about things which also want to know from you, so you'll see my questions.
As you know my name is Irina and my last name is Panteleeva.
I am 26 years old and on 5 March I will be 27. I am about 168 cm tall and my weight is about 53kg.

My body sizes are 96-62-91cm. I have brown hair brown eyes (sometimes my eyes are dark green)
which you can see from my photos. I also attached a photo of me and my niece.

I know that many women abroad have possibility to improve their bodies and faces and they look so beautiful. Unfortunately it is impossible here in Russia because even though we live in Russia, this country is still far from civilization.
But I still think that natural beauty is far better.


I live with my aunt, uncle and niece because I don't have parents ( they died long ago in a bus crush).
Unfortunately we live in a two-room small appartment and it is not very comfortable and not convenient. Honestly there is nothing good in the fact that I was born and live in a small town of Russia.
There is no chance for a good living and it is very hard to fnd a job here.
All young people leave towns and go to big cities searching for work but unfortunately there is also no luck for them in big cities since nobody is waiting for them there.
Living in Russia is living "all by myself". It is a good but cruel school of life.

I don't smoke and drink socially, my preference in alcohol is red wine, but only a glass or maybe two. I tried to smoke when I was younger. Silly me! But I think almost everybody try to smoke when you are a 13 years old, right?
I try to take care of my body and face as much as it is possible. I wasn't born yesterday and
I know that almost all "men love women by their eyes", I mean this or that way woman's
appearence is very important for a man.

Speaking about my trip. I will come to your country this month but I don't know when exactly,
I know that I will have all documents to travel soon and I will travel to Moscow later this week
again to complete all travel preparations.
I will get a visa and buy a ticket and then fly to your country. I even don't know where exactly
I am flying because I haven't decided yet. I can choose almost any city to stay that is why I need to know the name of the nearest international airport to you.
I just want to have somebody waiting for me at the airport and not to be alone there.
I will fly to your airport right from Moscow and I hope you will want to meet me at the airport and be my guide and besides it would be great to meet with you face to face and spend some time together.
I know that it is not an easy thing as it might seem but there is nothing impossible, right?

I will be more then glad to know that you understand me and my thoughts and you are with me in this question, but if not, then please tell me that you're not interested in me and don't want to meet me, ok?

I think I shoud close this letter. It is not good that I don't have a computer at home and have to send my letters to you from the Internet cafe which is far from my home.
I wish I could talk to you on the phone, but unfortunately we don't have possibility for international calls ( I can't call you and you can't call me because we have here four-digital phone numbers).
It is possible to make international phone calls only from big cities.

Ok, that is enough for today. If I didn't tell you something which is important for you or maybe missed something, don't be angry. Just ask me and I will answer for sure.

I think I will be here in the Internet cafe tomorrow or the day after tomorrow because I have a lot of preparations before going to Moscow. I hope when I come here, I will see one more letter from you.
Please write me and don't forget me!!!

Irina Panteleeva

my home address:
Russia
Kemerovskaya Region,
Branchatskiy village,
Lenina str. 55

PS Please send me as many photos of you as possible so that I will know you at the airport.
And one more thing. I have a very important question for you
- do you like string drinks?
- if so how many and how often?
