Letter 1

Hello, my dear Reiner!

I am so happy to hear from you. Your letter made me feel so warm inside. Thank you very much for your photo, I like it very much. You know I realize that there is an emptiness my life. I find myself asking what is the purpose of my life? I have come to realize that I will never be completely happy nor will my life have meaning until I find that special man who will love me totally and completely. I do long for the warmth and love of someone unique and special in my life. I just hope that you can become this one for me.

I want for us to build a wonderful relationship. What do you think are the most important things which form a long lasting relationship.
I think there are four of them.
(1) Physical attraction between the persons.
(2) Compatibility of characters.
This does not mean that both parties have to agree or have the same opinion on everything. To the contrary, a bit of difference of opinion is healthy, it leads to the third point, discussion and communication. But in the long run there has to be some similarity in character, likes/dislikes, outlook on life, lifestyle etc. You cannot live your life with a person you disagree with in everything.
(3) Discussion and Communication.
What I mean by discussion and communication is that both persons talk with each other, about any subject. It can be something trivial like what to cook tonight, or something more important, like when to have kids. In our case we should talk to each other about everything and anything. No subject should be left out. We have to be open and honest one to the other.
(4) Passion.
In my opinion it means that you must feel a fire in your whole body for that person. You must feel it in your heart.
I would be interesting for me to know your opinion about this subject.

My dear, I feel very awkward to tell you that I need your help for us to continue our communication. Unfortunately I don't know English and I use the translation and Internet service at the agency. I asked my parents to help me to pay for it but they are not able to do it at the moment because my father lost the job and my mother supports all the family. I work after my classes at the University but these money are not enough for living. I would really appreciate if you could help me in it. I think that we have the majority of things that build a good relationship. And we have a good potential for it to grow. It would be wonderful if we could continue get to know each other.

I'll be waiting for your letter impatiently.
With love
Your Julia
