Thank you so much for your reply. I was surprised and happy to hear back from you.

Letter 2

Hello!
This is me again.
This is my main email, write here.
As I promised I am going to tell you more about myself now.
My name is Mariya.
I am 28 years old.
I have never been married and I have no children.
My height is 5.4(166cm) and my weigh is 110(51kg). You can have an impression about it from my picture.
I am a very affectionate person. I believe in a life full of physical, emotional and spiritual happiness. And I want to share such a life with a person who wants the same.
I love the outdoors, spending time at home with a beloved person.
I love nature, water, picnics.
But I don’t do this as often as I would like it to be as I don’t have the one who could share it with me.
I am honestly ready to open my heart to a person who could really appreciate this.
I work as a shop-assistant and do sell clothes for women (skirts, trousers, blouses ). I really like my job. It is great when you can help someone to look more beautiful and I like to be around people.
I live in Russia. The city is called Tomsk. If you look at the map, you will find it close to the center, in the beginning of Sibiria. but somewhere I am going to get a student visa and I am going to come to your country.
I thought a lot about it and had come to such decision.
I love Russia but I do really want to move to a more stable country. The life is very complicated here. I know it will not be easy in a foreign country. But I am sure I can do much more in your country. I am a hard-working person and I am not afraid of difficulties, so with the opportunities that your country gives I can do more than I do here.
I already have some experience living and working in a foreign country. Some years ago I worked in Australia and I should say I liked it very much. So I know what is waiting for me and I don’t want to waste time. And I decided to try and find a person I could rely on, the one who will be with me in joy and sorrows. We all work a lot now and it takes so much time that we miss the most important in this life – love relations and family.
Living in Australia I had relations with a man. But I had to go back to my country as my visa was over. He didn’t want to wait for me any longer. It was too difficult for him. It was a very hard period for me but I could handle it. And now I am ready to fall in love and to have new relations. I tried to have correspondence with foreigners. But as soon as they get to know I was from Russia they disappeared. They thought I was a scammer. I hope that you are not scared that I am from Russia.
I want you to understand, I am not a scammer. I don’t need money from you. I heard much about it and I really feel sorry for women who are true and want to find their happiness.
All this is so wrong as there are so many people who really want to find their second halves. And internet is a very good opportunity for this.
I hope that you like my pictures. I am not a model, of course.
I am just an average Russian girl who is truly seeking her love...
I hope that you are interested in me and I will hear back from you. And perhaps, in the future we will have an opportunity to meet. I go to the internet cafe 3 times a week. That is why I am going to write to you in a day.
Well, I hope that now you understand me better and I will be waiting impatiently for your reply.
Mariya.

Letter 3

Hello again Keith.
I am very glad to hear from you. Thank you for paying attention and for writing back. I am going to write to you 3 times a week so we could get to know each other better.
You can call me Mila. My name is Mariya,
But all my friends call me Mila. it is my nickname...
I am going to tell you a little bit more about my lifestyle.
My apartment is rather small but very cozy. It is very expensive here to rent an apartment. So this is what I can afford to myself now – one room, no phone and a small kitchen.
I have a cell phone(+7-952-153-9051)but I don’t think I am able to call to other countries. Therefore write letters to me here.
But my friends say it is very comfortable. It is difficult to live alone and do all by myself. My parents live in another city. I moved from there when I was 17. And I don’t see them often. We are not in very good relations with them. But any time they need my help, I will come and do what I can for them.
Though I am 28 y.o. I am ready to settle down, to have family, to give all my time to my husband. I think that every person needs a place he could come and feel easy and comfortable.
This is what I am looking for and what I need. I don’t want to be lonely any more. I was disappointed several times. And I don’t trust men here any more. By the way, how it happened that you still haven’t found your second half? You are a very interesting person and a good man. And I am sure you break hearts.
You already know that I am trying to get a student visa to your country. And it could be a very good opportunity for us to meet if we like each other through letters and find that we match each other. The situation in our country is very uncomfortable now. With our Minister Putin we have no democracy. And our new president Medvedev same as Putin.
There are no good laws; we live like it was during the Soviet times. And I don’t like it at all. Other countries are developing fast. But we are still on the same level as it was many years ago. And consequences of an economic crisis have very painfully struck Russia. I liked living in Australia.
It is a big and well developed country with lots of opportunities for good life. I lived there for 1,2 years. But unfortunately, I had to go back because of my visa. I was there in 2000y.
And it was a very good time for me. I enjoyed it.
I worked as a nurse with children. And I liked the family I lived in very much. They are good people and they helped the first time a lot. My language skill was not good and they helped me to speak and understand it better. My living there helped to write and speak English fluently. So there will be no problems with our communication.
I told youalready in my previous letter that a man I had there just left me and I don’t want to anything to remind me about this again.
I am going to tell you about interests and hobbies in my next letter. I have to stop here as the time in the internet cafe is limited. I don’t have my personal computer at home as most people in Russia do.
Well, I will better stop here for now.
Mariya.
P.S.
I will try to send you my pics with each letter.
I hope you don't mind?

Once again I added my first letter in bottom because I am not sure did you get it or not.

Hello again Keith.

Letter 5

Hi Keith,
such a pity there is no message from you.
You have received my last letter?
In this letter, I wrote more about me to you and said that my nick name is Mila.
May be my letter has got in yours spam folder? Look there!
I only want to tell you that I think of you and wait for your reply. Please, write me as soon as possible.
I am waiting for your reply impatiently.
I understand that it's difficult to believe woman via internet.
Therefore I want to prove I am real. I made a pic for you yesterday. This is a pic of me with Tomsk's newspaper.
There is a date. That will prove to you I am real...
I have some time and I decided to tell you more about myself.
I really like you and I would like to know you well. And I want you to understand me better too, to know how I live, what I do in my spare time.
Well, I like cooking very much. This is one of the things that make me relax and forget about all the bad things that happen during the day. Salads, different soups, pasta, souses, cakes and pies– it is just a short list of what I cook. I like very much to try new things. It is always nice to go to a good restaurant or to a nice pizza place, cafe.
I do it seldom, usually it happens when we celebrate someone’s birthday.
I like trying new cuisine and trying to guess what are the ingredients.
What’s favorite dish?
I like bowling and billiard. do you like bowling? or billiard?
What’s is your favorite colour? Mine is red and black.
I have no pets. I like animals a lot. Also I like watching programmes on TV about animals. I do love cats and dogs and horse.
Watching movies is one of my adorable things to do, especially at the weekend. I like comedies and melodramas.
What’s favorite types movie do you like?
It is always so nice to rent some movie, to cook something tasty or something sweet, to invite someone of my friends and enjoy the time together. It is especially nice doing it in the cold winter evening with a warm blanket and a cup of hot tea or coffee.
I do not smoke, but sometimes I can drink a little wine (red) or beer.
I always try to find time to read something. The last book I’ve read was “Loneliness in the internet” by Vishnevskiy.
I liked it very much though it is sad but it shows the true life of people. I also like to read classical things by Tolstoy, Bernard Show, Dostoevskiy and others.
I regularly go into aerobics. And I also I go twice a week to the swimming-pool. It helps me to stay in a good shape and to be healthy.
I try to lead a healthy life style, don’t have any bad habbits.
Music helps me to be a in good spirit. I like ballads very much though sometimes I can listen to a fast music. I like Lara Fabian very much and Darren Hayes.
I like to have long walks in parks.
I like to drive on a bicycle.
I have no it, but often take for rent bicycle.
What about you? What are your prefers? Tell me, please, more about you and your interests.
I have important question for you. Do you know any colleges and universities close to your place? I could check them in advance and enter then when I go to your country.
I would like studies near to you and meet you often.

I like both trades. But I can choose and any other branch of formation.
Well, I have to close here. But will be waiting very much for your reply.
Mariya.

Letter 6

Hi Keith!
There is no reply from you and I wonder what happened. I hope everything is fine with you.
Did you forget about me? If you decided to stop correspondence with me?, please, let me know. It is better to hear the truth.
Please, write me as soon as possible. I worry about you and I wonder what could happen to you.
I just hope you are not going to give up on me.
Please, remember there is someone thinking of you a lot.
And I would like to be your friend or girlfriend.
Hope to hear back from you very soon.
Mariya.

Letter 7

Please, answer me one question, are you going to continue correspondence with me? If yes, then please, answer my previous letters, if not, then write me not to wait for you.
I am just getting tired to wait for your reply.
Mariya.

Letter 8

I think of you. I look forward to hearing to mine last 2 letters.
Mariya

Letter 9

Hello Keith,
I am glad, to receive your answer.
Unfortunately, I can’t talk to you on-line, as I write letters to you from the internet cafe and the time is limited there.
I wish I could chat with you but right now it is just impossible as I don’t have a personal PC.
But I shall continue to send you email letters and pics.
I am going to send you my address here. As I already told you I rent my apartment and I don’t have a phone there. But here is my address, in case you decide to send me a card or a hand-written letter: -

to Mariya,
apt.-16, per. Russkiy street 4,
Tomsk, 634026, Russia

Yes, I am going to come to your country. Somewhere in a month. I am going to enter the University or college. I am doing all the paperwork for this now. That's why I asked you about the colleges or Universities close to your place. So I could study and meet with you there.
I shall live in campus.
Do you want it? You want that I lived near to you in your district?
Do not forget to send me your photos.
As soon as I finish this letter I will go and have a short walk.
You know walking is one of the things I adore. It is so nice to have a long walk and then find some small cafe and get a cup of coffee there. I don’t have a car and I don’t really want to have it right now. And it is too expensive for me. I have no money to buy a car. I have never tried to drive a car and I have no license.
Walking is much more pleasant. Unfortunately, most of the times I have to walk alone. All my friends are married and they try to spend more time with their families. I also like to go to the movie a lot. But do it rather seldom. Usually I go there with my friends, but they don’t do this often. They try to spend more time with their husbands and children. As I don’t have children and a husband, I try not to bother them often. Sometimes I feel rather lonely but I try not to think of this often.
Any way, my city is too beautiful not to walk. My city is very beautiful. There are so many places of culture there, lots of monuments. It is very green. It is especially beautiful in spring and in summer time when everything is awaken after the winter.
There are also many parks and we have one boulevard with fountains.
And it is gorgeous.
Also we have some really beautiful churches. I am Christian but I am not really religious. I have my own faith inside.
And I go to the church but do it seldom. I am not fanatic about this.
I like nature very much and it is always a please to go somewhere to the country-side and to spend a day there. I like picnics, camping a lot. It is great to spend a day on the fresh air, especially when you are with friends or family. I try to enjoy it every time we do it but sometimes I feel very sad as I miss not having my second half near.
Well, I am not going to be sad, as I am sure everything will be fine. Please, tell me about your city? What is it?
What’s interesting there?
Mariya.

Letter 10

Dear Keith!
Such a pity there is no reply from you. I was waiting so much for your letter. Hope that you’ve got my previous e-mail where I sent you my mail address.
Did you like my funny pic? I hope you was not mad by this pic?
It was made on racing car show. I was there with my friend Vika.
She is close friend. She makes all my pics.
She likes to photographe me. It's her hobby. I like to pose her.
I already spoke you - I shall arrive to you in a month.
I still choose college in which I shall go to study.
I shall inform you the name when I shall know.
I shall know all the information in a week.
I am going from the post office. I decided to send my parents a letter. As I already told you I am not really in good relations with them. But any way, they are my parents and I love them.
I also have a brother and he is younger than me and they give him all the love they have. They always loved him more than me and didn’t pay much attention to me. My mum wanted to have a son very much and she couldn’t get pregnant for a long time and she was very happy when she got to know she was going to have a son. Of course, it hurts to know that they love him a lot and are not very interested in my life. But if they are happy, I am glad for them.
When I have returned from Australia, I entered the Pedagogical Institute and studied for an educator. I worked as an educator in the kindergarten as soon as I finished it. Though I like children a lot, the salary was too small to continue working there. You know it is rather difficult to live alone when you don’t have any help from anyone. That’s why I decided to try and find another job.
I had relations with men in my life. But I can’t depend on a man.
When I love I give all of myself to this person.
Unfortunately, men can’t always appreciate this. I like sex but I think that when you are in relations with someone you should be faithful and do not betray the one who lives with you.
Unfortunately, men here want to have everything, a faithful wife and another woman as a lover. I am a very devoted and faithful person and this I can’t accept. Hope you understand me.
Sex is very good but I accept it only with the person that I love. I am not a virgin but at the same time I am not a slut.
My last relations were 2 years ago. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out as he was too busy spending good time with his friends all the time and he almost paid no attention to me. I was just like a beautiful thing for him and nothing more. Since that time I had no relations with other men.
Well, it is not really comfortable to talk about sex right now.
You know that I write from the internet cafe and there are lots of people around me. And also I don’t know you too good yet to discuss this topic.
I have to go now. People are coming and coming to the internet cafe and you know my time is limited (15min). Internet cafe is a place where everyone can come and use a computer there. We have to pay for such a service. It is not a library where you can use computers free of charge. When I lived in Australia I often went to the library and could use computer there as long as I needed. But here the time is limited as there are too many people who need to use them. Please, tell me about your family.
What relations do you have with them?
Enjoy you day!!!
All the best to you.
Mariya.
P.S. I asked you in my previous letter to send me your address.
I want to send you a card and my picture. Or perhaps, I will send you a hand written letter.
