Letter 1

Hi! How are you?!

Thank you for your letter. Thank you for this chance to open my heart to you and to try to win yours! There are so many things and thoughts I want to share with you. I want to tell you about my life, my background, my hopes for the future of course. I want to stay totally open and sincere in order to show you how serious I am about our possible future.

Ok. Here I am. As you know I'm Nataliya or Natasha. These are the same names. I've never been married, no children. I'm from Aleksandrovsk.
It is a small town in Lugansk region, Ukraine.

If you ask my friends to say one word about me, they will definitely describe me as a "sensitive" girl. I take everything to heart. My friends' joy and sorrow are always mine. I'm a very sympathetic person. I'm able to encourage people and I'm always inspired myself.
At the moment you are my inspiration, our newborn relations inspire me.

I came to Aleksandrovsk, when I was 17 immediately after graduation of the cooking school. I work as a cook in a small restaurant. As for my family, unfortunately my father died, when I was 16. My mother hasn't recovered yet after she lost her beloved husband. My father was a real provider for our family. He was a very gifted engineer. My father was the wise head in a small engineering company, where my mother worked as well. After my father died, the company broke down. My mother lost her job as well. So, I had to become grown-up very quickly, especially because I needed to take care of my younger brother. That's how I decided to become a cook. This profession was relatively fast to achieve and it has many stages. Firstly I worked as a waitress, then I peeled and cut vegetables. Then I helped cooks, and only then I was rewarded to become a cook myself.

As you can see, I'm not ugly. I can cook well, it is very good for family life. I'm sensitive and loving. Too good to be true, yeah? But I'm not perfect, I have weaknesses as everyone has. I like to sleep, I like to do nothing sometimes. And I don't know English. It is a pity.
I just don't want this to be an obstacle. I've found an Internet Cafe where I can use a computer. In their price list I found an additional service for translation. I decided why not. Why do I have to limit myself to communication with a Russian speaking man only? I pay for my letters to be translated for you and vice-versa.

For me to build successful and long-term relations means to build TRUST between a man and a woman. Trust in family life means no less than love. It is hard to believe that you can be happy with a person that you only like physically. We are miles away from each other.
There are millions of questions in our heads about each other. You definitely ask yourself "Is she honest with me?". I write this and ask myself "Is he sincere in what he writes me?". Our communication is the only one way how we can earn each other's trust.

I didn't try to write a long letter intentionally. I'm afraid you are feeling tired after reading everything I wanted to tell you. I just want you to know the person I am as well as I want to know what person you are. Communication will help us to build trust, to answer all questions we may have for each other.

If my life position correlates with yours, please write me back. I really like you. I want more, I want more between us.

Your sensitive girl, Nataliya.
