Hi Gary!

Letter 2

Hi Gary!!!
I,m really glad to receive your message. How are you?
I saw your picture in a profile. But I want to have your picture on a computer to have an opportunity to see it every day.
You have asked to me some questions and I shall answer on these. > As a baby physician what exactly can you do as far as healing an > llness in a child?
I am a baby physician and I can cure the child, I work in hospital.
>can you speak English well and is it possible to call you sometime?
I study your language during 18 years. Of course I speak English.
Unfortunately I have no phone. Please, not be surprising. In Russia many people have no phone. To get a phone it is necessary to write the statement, to pay the big sum and after to wait for a long time queue. Many people wait during several years. But I can try to call you from the international item of communication. Can you give me your phone number? If I can call you I will inform to you. I with very big pleasure will call you.
>If you met the right man would you consider moving to the United States?
For me it is not important where to live, Russia, America or other country. It is not the main thing. The main thing is that there was a love. The main thing is to be together with the beloved.
>Have you ever been in love and if so what ended your happiness?
I have been in love. The longest my relations I had with the guy I have told you about. We were not in a marriage but we were together a long time. Therefore, all what it is connected to my last relationship is connected to this guy. I really had strong feelings, but I think you remember how he "loved" me. I will be glad if you also will tell to me about you.
I want to tell you something about my interests. My favorite color is white the symbol of the cleanest. I like to rest on the nature. Also I like pets. You know I have got a cat it,s name Barsik. When I come home after work I sit and take my cat on the knees and hear nice music. What kind of music do you prefer? I like to listen classic music, soul, pop. But the choice of the music depend on the mood. In the summer evenings I with my friends go to walk. I like to spend the time in the kitchen too, where I do experiments with new dishes. I like to cook most of all. Have you ever eat russian borsh, pelmeni, pancakes with honey? In the last letter I'm not write about my family and I want to make it now. I was born and in Salagaevo live there now. I don,t remember the Father because he didn,t live with us. I was brought up by mum since the childhood. She was very good woman and we lived with her very well. She was for me my best friend and the most close person on the Earth. Unfortunately now she isn,t with me. She has for a long time a cancer of a stomach and in 2001 she has died. I was 25 years, but I felt like the unprotected child whom has remained alone. I,m long time grieved for her death and couldn,t believe in it. I am grateful to mum for happiness. Now I live one in the house. It is the small house but very cozy. After death of my mum I feel very alone. I have no brothers or sisters. Now my family are my friends. I have many familiars but only two main friens. There are Lena and Anna. We are friends since the childhood. Friends of the childhood the most reliable and I can always address to them for the help and support in a difficult situation. Unfortunately Lena live in city. But we write each other letters. Anna lives near to my house and we meet with her every day. Her care and support for me is very important now. I think that the friendship is important and necessary for each person. Do you think so? Can you tell me more about yourself and people near you? You can ask me about everything. You seem to be an intelligent and interesting person from your letter. So please tell me more about yourself, your likes and dislikes, interests, expectations, desires. I'd like to know more about you I hope you be interested in me, my life and my hobbies. I shall try to tell you all in the following letters. I shall answer your questions with pleasure. With the best regards.

Gary! I start to worry! Why you do not write me?
Please write 2 words that you ok and I will cease to worry. Did you receive my letters? I have written to you that I want to see you. You do not want? Or you have no time to write? If you do not want to meet me please write. The word of honor, I have thought that you want to meet me. I was mistaken? Forgive me if you simply have no time to write to me. But I really worry. Yesterday I could send my letter only from the fourth attempt. Maybe a reason in it? Maybe any malfunctions on our Internet? I understand in it a little. Forgive if I rambling on. I will wait your letter.
