Letter(s) to Tom (USA)

Letter 1

Hi Tom!

Thank you for your letter. I becoming attached to your letters and I like it very much. Can you write me more about your work? What is most intresting in it? How do you spend your free time? I was born at Staroutinsk town. My mother was born there and lived there for all her life. My father took me out there for not having trouble thoughts about my mother. I like my town Staroutinsk very much. I have no brothers and sisters. I have only a cousin she lives in Moscow now. Her name is Nadia.

Now I am working as seller - adviser at biggest company at our city. This is firm that sells furniture. My duties are to show furniture to clients, to tell them all about it, to take orders. I cant say that I like my work very much, but my heads very proud for me, they always say that I am best. They are very good and strong people and I like them a lot. My work is not very far from me, and I always go there by myself. And how long from your home your work is situated?

And some words about my town. My town is not very big. We have no big houses there and the largest house 9-floor building. But our town is enough green and nice. Its situated near the Chusovaya river so we have lots of fishmen. It is not very noisy town. We like our town very much.

So, I would like to tell you about how I get idea to start to write you. The reason is I met one of my old girlfriends, which was my classmate. We spoke a lot and she was very happy and told me her story. One day she with our girlfriends comes to Internet club just for kidding. They did not know lots about Internet. They asked a manager of Internet club what they could do their interesting. He shows them one of Internet dating cites. My girlfriend (Galina) wrote only one not serious letter to a man from United States, Illinois. She did not wait something seriouse. Then she began to go every day and write him. She did not let her girlfriend to come with she. And after one month of communicating she told them that she will go to USA soon and that she love that man. She went to USA for one month and when she returned she were happiest woman of the world. I did not see her such happy before! I was really shocked. It looked like a fairy tale. I was speaking a lots with her and I was so surprised to knew that would like to marry and to come to USA for all her life. I asked her why she did not choose Russian man. She said that American men are better then Russian and that does not drink a lots. They more polite, culture, and kind. They more oriented to a family then Russian. She said, that she had no any problems with living there and she will not share her Stephan with someone else. He is 49 years old, and Galina is very happy with him. She is 35. She says that difference in ages is not just a little problem. She has advised me to choose only American man. I thought more then one year and only now I know, that I am ready to fallow her advise. I am so sad now that I have no her e-mail and her address; I have so much questions to her! Unfortunately, I have never been outside Russia, but I hope someday. And I dont know a lots about a trips though a countries. But I so happy that I meet you and I hope to know more about you. My time is over now and I have to go now.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Natalia

My dear Tom!

Today I just can't wait to read your mail! Its seems it become mean for me more and more! So, how are you today? I am really surprised how Internet helps us to get close! Now I so thanks to my girlfrind and I am so sad that I did not know you early! I become so attached to your letters!

Today I did not work. That's why my aunt and I make general cleaning of house. We do it every three-month and it takes whole day. I like to make cleaning with aunt. She is very hardworking woman and to clean house with her is very chearful. We always like to be in company of each other. We spoke a lot and I told her about our relations. I said her that I did not believe it early and I am so happy to see that it works now! She was very surprised and wishes us luck and she hopes that our relations will grow up in future in more seriouse. Also we do small cleaning every week by Saturdays. Today we wash windows, walls, floors, and cleaned carpets. It was really easy for me to do it thinking about you. Today we decided to change a carpet in a bedroom, so we needed to change pinth. When we broke old, we finded od wooden board. The house of my aunt is very old, so there are a lot of such boards. Under this board I founded old coin. I was really curiouse what does it mean and my aunt advise me to go to specialist. He told me that its very valueable coin which is dated 1704, its 1 ruble. I was really happy to know it. It has great quality. He told me that it may costs from 400 till 700 dollars USA. And they said that it can cost more at some other countries. I decided to save it for future. I hope that sometime this coin will help me.

My dear Tom, its a little confuse me, but I would like to share my dream with you. Today night I saw that we sat together at a coast of a big lake. I have not seen this lake early, but it was so beautiful and quiet, and barrels an easy warm breeze. We looked at night sky and we see nice moon and a lots of stars which was reflected in a mirrow of water. It was so good and I feeled your strong arms on my shoulders. We spoke about us and about our feelings to each other. I imagined that we had to tell each other something important, that will change all our future. But at this moment I waked up but I had impression from this dream for a long time. It was so real, that when I understood that it's only a dream, I was very sad. I have never feeled such feelings. And I believe that someday this dream become true!

My dear Tom, I often think about you and about our relations. It seems to me that every day we become closer. We know more about each other and I like all that you wrote me. So, I will go home now to think about this all. I hope I did not confused you with my dream. What do you think about this all?

Hug you, my dear Tom

My sweetheart Tom,

Today after work I met my cousin. She lives in Moscow now so I was really surprised to meet her. She come here to meet her parents, my aunt. She graduated from Institute of foreighn relations. She works like translator now and she just returned from New York. We spoke a lots and she told me how is she living and what news. She told that New York is very nice city and it's very big. I was a little afraid to tell her about you but when I told her she said that I did all correct. She told that we have not lost a chance and we have to continue communications make it more closer! She told that it's not often people at another part of the world finding someone that can makes feelings and if it exists they have to keep care about it. She said, that important things are understanding and respecting. I agreed with her and I think that we have it with you! I think we have to do anything for us, I feel our feelings are very important for our future, we have to use this chance that given for us and not lose our happyness. I am afraid to lose anything we have now, because letters is good and it give us for understanding each other but it does not compare with personal meeting. I believe that we are born for each other and we can pass a life together. I think, that one meeting in person is better than one million letters. Do you agree with me? What are your ideas? I think, the most important thing for us is not to lose our chance that is given for us. My dear, how much friends do you have? Did you tell them about me? What do they tell about our meeting about you? I have a lot of thought about it. I need your ideas.

Love you, Natalia

My dear love Tom!

It was so pleasant for me to get your letters! With every your letter I feel that we bacoming more closer and closer! Every time, when I reading your letter, my mood become well and my heart is knocking so strong! I miss you very much and all my thoughts last time only about you! When I coming to Internet club and saw a letter from you, I pleasing as a small girl. You are the unique man that can understand me now and can support me in difficult situation! I am sure in you and I can trust you in any case. I think a lot about you and about us and I understood that I dreaming about making a family with you to have a honest, loving, reliable husband like you, who will be sure in hisself and in myself. I dreming about that time when I will be helping you in all about house, to work and rest together, laughing and solve common problems, because your problems will be my problems and on the contrary. I think, it has to be so if people love each other. I thought a lot about this all and what we have to do now. I think, that we have to meet in person and I am ready to arrive to you for us. How do you think about it? I dont see more best way to know each other, I think, we cant get such result just communicating through letters. But I am very serious about you, and about our meeting. We did a big step for making serious and longterm relations. I think we dont have to stop here, we have to make next serious step, the meeting which will let us to know each other better and it let us to continue our relations.

I talked to cousin what do I need to come to you, is it real or not. She know about it because she visiting sometimes another countries. She sayd that I need visa and air ticket only. She sayd that it’s not a big problem to make a visa for one or two month. She advised me to go EVA (Ekaterinburg Visa Agency) and to ask there about it. So I will ask my chief to go home early tomorrow and I will go to Ekaterinburg to the EVA to ask more about it.

My sweetheart, how do you think, if I will come to you, where is the best place for my living? At your home or at a hotel? I would like to stay at your home, if its not a problem and if you want it. I hope my wish to come to you to meet in person is not confuse you. Please tell me the true.

My dear Tom! I do not have a big salary but it’s not bad for Russia. I saved some money for any case, but I was not sure for what. I think, that this case is come. I dont sure if this help us for visa and ticket both, I dont know how much does it all cost, but I hope it will help us. Also I would like to go to cash departments of airport to know how much tickets cost. My dear Tom, I need some information for this. Please write me closest airport to you and what date is better for my visit? My love, what do you think about duration of a trip? Please write me you opinion about this all. I shall be waiting it with impatience.

Letter 9

My dear love Tom!

I am so happy to get your letter and I am so happy that we becoming closer to each other. All night I thinking about you and about us, I turned on few times the light to read and reread your letters. Its very great that people can meet each other throught Internet and write letters to each other just every day which can let them know more about each other, to make fellings and empathies. I am so gald to meet you in my life and I am planning to meet you in person. I am very serious in my choice. I dont think that longterm correspondence will help us as much as personal meeting. I dont like to speak about financial, it does not good in Russia, I dont brought up such, and my parents teach me to consult with it only by myself, and if I ask someone about something, it mean that I thought a lot about wheather to do it or not. So I thought a lot about is this good or not to ask you about help, but I hope for your understanding because I do it only for both of us and for our happyness. My dear, during the time of our communicating, I understood that we have feeling to each other that I can call LOVE. Such feelings between people become not only from nothing and from lots of thought, analyses of relations, understanding and mutual help. With every day I am becoming surer in my choise and in you. And I sure those if I do some mistake you will understand me and forgive me and I can say it about myself too. Looking for our relations I understood that only destiny of my heart is to meet you in person. And I believe in mutual feelings. I was at cash of airport department today asking about cost of the tickets. I dont think that tickets can cost so much! I dont sure in choice of date, but I asked about cheapest tickets that exists. Its costs about 980 US dollars. So, here is information about ticket:

Moscow, Russian Federation (MOW) to Portland, OR (PDX) Departing Sun, May 8
Aeroflot
Flight 247 8:45pm
Moscow, Russian Federation (SVO) 5:37pm - Mon, May 9
Next day arrival
Portland, OR (PDX) 31hrs 52min - 2 Stops

Unfortunately for that moment its really big money for me. As you know, I saved up some money, its about 50 dollars for the ticket and all money for the visa. So I need about 930 dollars more. Its really hard for me to find now such money bymyself, it will take about half of year more. Will you help me with it? What do you think about a date of our meeting? Which is the best? The easiest for me is to take vacation in next month. Please write me your opinion. I dont know a lots about how to send money but I will ask it from my cousin, she sent money few times for my aunt from another countries. I am waiting your responce with impatience and I hope for soon meeting. I am sure that meeting in person will be better then thouthands of letters. But it big money and if you cannot help that I can understand you . It my mistacke. Everything is Allright. Yours, Natalia

Letter 11

Unfortunately I have no opportunity to so much because I have contract with the chief at work by which I can discharge from my work only next month, and following time when I can will leave from work in the next year, it kills me because I do not have money to trip and it means that we shall not meet , and I very much want it and I think that you are my destiny and I do not want you to lose, it will break my heart, to me is very hard without you and to think of that I shall lose you. I talked to the father and asked money to trip, he has told that he will have money only after sale of a house and he will give all to us if we shall meet and we shall decide to get married, he sells the house to the director for 36.000 dollars, but registration will occupy about 7 months and he cannot give us money of this term. He very much experiences for us and he was very much upset that we probably shall not meet. I tried to borrow money from all girlfriends, but thats so much money for them, and they cant give it to me. I do not know what I have to do, I cannot live without you and I dream to create with you family. Our meeting dreamed me every night and when I wake up that I crying because it was only dream. Please tell that I should make what to see you I am ready on all for the sake of us and our future. I shall try to call you during 3 days, but inform me the phone number and specify time in which I can find you in house. I ask you to do the most for our meeting and for us. With love Natalia

Letter 12

My love Tom I is very glad to see your mail today. I am very glad that you can to receive the ticket for me. But I was today in visa agency. And the agent of travel has offered me two variants of reception of the ticket and registration of the visa. 1) If you buy the ticket to me on the or for my name. This ticket and still a heap of documents it will be necessary to send that before the beginning of registration of the visa to Moscow and through the American embassy the decision on my visiting to you will be born. This process will be very long and will occupy many months. And me will constantly cause to Moscow. That absolutely me does not please. 2) The visa agency buys the ticket addressed to agency. They already have some duties before the American embassy. They work with them very much for a long time. As the ticket is made out on the legal person that process of registration of the visa will be reduced about two - three weeks. And many documents will be made out by visa agency. That also reduces time of preparation of the visa. But in this case I should buy the ticket itself together with the agent of travel. I understand that it is a question of trust but for me the second variant would be the best. But we should solve this question together. I shall look forward to hearing from you. With love Natalia

Letter 13

My dear Tom!
I am very glad to receive the letter from you. It is always very pleasant for me to read your letters because in it our ideas are incorporated and it unites us, our souls and our hearts! We find out about each other with every letter more and more though we do not see each other, but through our letters we feel each other and we represent such what is. But the most important that in our dialogue would not be a deceit and believe me I never deceived you and I can not make it because I believe in kindness, in honesty of people and in love, I understand that all this sounds is banal, but believe me it really so. Certainly I could mistaken somewhere and if so please forgive me. You became very close to me and important, I have grown fond of you and that that now I should you tell breaks my heart, but I should tell it while our correspondence has not gone too far, I spoke you that did not search for long correspondence and have got acquainted with the Internet the first time therefore all my mistakes only from for not skills to use the Internet. I have seen yours profile at dating site and you have sunk down in my heart. I want to get acquainted with you and find out you better in hope for serious relations and for personal meeting. You have responded on my offer and we have started to find out each other better. In consequence of our correspondence I have understood that I love you and I hope you too. I thought of our relations much and have come to a conclusion that we should meet and I want to be only with you. Nobody is necessary for me except for you and I love only you. These words proceed from my heart. I think that we should make all for our meeting or cease to communicate, because to communicate with you and to not see you kills me. I cannot without you and if we cannot unit our hearts it is better to stop our relations. Understand me correctly I want happiness for us and I do not want to hurt you and me. Problem is, that I can leave from work only at the next month of this year it is written in my contract with work. The following opportunity will leave from work at me only a year later and I cannot wait so much. For this time there can be much with you and with me and such long separation will not do good for our relations. We can meet only this time because other opportunity will not be. I do not know what to do, I shall try to borrow money at familiar and friends for purchase of the ticket but if I shall not find money or chance to get to you this month, it means that we shall not meet a year more. This idea kills me. Probably I shall write less often to you, but it from for that at me is a lot of work and I want to earn some money for trip to you. Please tell me what I have to do to not lose each other, and I do everything. I wait for your answer with impatience. Yours, Natalia

Letter 14

I am very much upset also to me it would be desirable to cry.
I want to arrive to you but my salary 80 $ to a month. Really you do not understand that this money suffices only on a meal. On the ticket to you if I absolutely shall eat nothing I should save the whole year. Really you in general anything cannot be got. Certainly it is difficult for you to understand it at you all is and that any girl from Russia tries to find the happiness to you too difficultly to understand.
That all your words about love mean if you can make nothing that I was with you. All of you have shifted on my shoulders and have thought somehow itself will arrive. Somehow will fail? I have already borrowed money from girlfriends to pay for internet club.
Even to correspond with you to me dearly. I do not know what to do to me it would be desirable to cry.
Natalia

Letter 15

I did not search for long correspondence. I have only two months to meet you. Under the labour contract I have only these two months or I should work as early as one year. I do not know, that will take place for this time in my country. If we can meet, only these two months. Natalia

Letter 16

You have decided to forget about me or have found somebody else? I am very much upset. Natalia

Letter 17

Listen my dear Tom.
I am already tired from your mistrust to me. I do not know who to you that have told but it at all is not pleasant to me. If you want that we have largly quarrelled that if you still will send me a pair of such letters as now that we shall quarrel. I am very much upset. Natalia

Letter 18

My dear forgive me that did not write to you.
But something happened with a post server and I cannot already receive your letters two days. Please write to me on the new address natikulik@poschta.ru I wait for your answer. Natalia

Letter 19

My love Tom.
I love you I was today in visa agency and they have told that should buy the ticket this week. Whether I am a little upset and should know you can help me this week. Natalia

Letter 20

Hello my darling Tom!
Sorry for so short letter, but I had to go work now. I have come running in the Internet club to write some lines for you. I have some news for you. Today I had conversation with my boss. I spoke him two weeks ago, that I want to receive holiday soon. Today he has told to me, that if I want to receive holiday I should take it during 7 days. Otherwise I cannot receive holiday during one year. It was so unexpectedly for me. It means, that I should begin reception of the visa immediately. What I shall do? I had to have a ticket for to begin reception of the visa. I wait letter from you very much! Your Natalia

Letter 21

My love Tom.
When you have told that you will help with the ticket to me I without her all savings. My cousine has given me its savings and I have issued the medical insurance. And now I wait from you for the help with the ticket. And you to me write any excuses. You understand if I shall not buy the ticket this week that the visa to be delayed and I cannot arrive to you and I shall lose the visa and the insurance. I very much worry because of it and you continue to speak me about your problems. Why you earlier to me have not told I then would not make out the visa. I already spoke you that I do not play in games and your money are not necessary for me but I cannot arrive to you without your help. Whether so to you I shall decide with you. I wait for your answer. I love children very much. My dream to have two children: boy and girl Natalia
