Letter(s) to Rob (UK)

Letter 1

Hi Rob!!!
I was happy to get a reply from you. I am very glad I was able to catch your attention. Sorry I did not write earlier, but I could not, because was on a visit at the grandmother. It is far from city in village where there was no place to write to you.
I think you are a very interesting man and we should get to know each other better! I should start from telling you more about myself. Ok? I am 29 y.o. My name is Ekaterina(But you can name me Katya so my friends name me and so it will be easier for you). I have never been married and have no children. I don't drink and smoke. I live in Russia, in the city of Magnitogorsk. There are many interesting places, where you can spend a good time. Also my city is very green, there are many trees here and in winter it is covered with the snow.
Describing myself, I can say that I am slim. My weigh is 58 kg. My height is 170 centimeters. I think you will have a better idea of me looking at my picture I am attaching to this letter. I work as a waitress in the local restaurant. That is not my main profession. But I have to work there as I am not able to find anything better. Don't think that I am complaining. I will better tell you about my parents. My father died already and I live only with my mother. She is on pension now and doesn't work anywhere.
I have some questions. I would like to know where do you live? Where do you work? / I don't have my own phone and computer at home and I am writing you from the Internet Centre. That is why sometimes there could be delays with my letters. I will try to write you in a day. We should try to get to know each other better. Hope you will understand me.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Letter 2

Hi, dear Rob!!!
I am very happy you wrote me.
It was very interesting to read your letter. You are the first foreign man I communicate with!!! I think it is very interesting to have new experiences in the life!!! don't you think so?
You know I have suddenly found you. I came to the Internet Centre to find some information for me. And suddenly I have found your profile I even can't remember where it was. But I decided to write you immediately. There are not so many good men in Russia. And I think you differ from them. Russian men don't appreciate Russian women. Russian men are very rude and drink much vodka. They don't care about women. And I dream to find a caring man. I would give such a man all my love and care!!! Who knows, may be you will be that man?! I hope you are not scared with these words? That is just a dream. / I will tell you some more information about me. Though I work as a waitress, I have higher education and my profession is an accountant. I studied in the University for 5 years and that is why I speak English rather well.
It is very hard to find work on this speciality so I have to work in the restaurant. That is a very good place where you can meet many interesting people. But that is a very hard work as I have to work till late. I get very tired. But this allows me to be more independent and to earn for my living. I have to do it as I have nobody to rely on.
Can you write me why you are alone, if it is not difficult for you. Have a good day!
PS. I shall try to send you with each letter one my photo. But it will turn out not always because I do it through the scanner, and it frequently does not work in Internet cafe. Ekaterina.

Letter 3

Hi, dear Rob!!!
I was so happy coming to the Internet Cafe and there was a letter from you. Perhaps, you ask yourself what is Internet Cafe?! That is an interesting place where average people who don't have personal computers come and can use computers paying some money. I like to read detective stories. There are some really good ones of the modern Russian authors. I think that is the decision of both partners. I and my future husband will decide it together. And if he will not want children then they will not be!!!! And now let's learn about each other more if I all interest you?!?!?!?!?!
I don't drink and smoke.
I prefer Sexy underwear.
I prefer Gold jewellery. But I almost have no it.
I have never been married and have no children. I had a boy-friend but he left me. That's a long and sad story and I will tell you it in another letter. I don't have a boy-friend. I was very disappointed in the past but it is another story. I like to be active. To do different kinds of aerobics and also jogging in the mornings. But I don't like to watch sports on TV. Dear, I would like to know what you like and don't like in people? What features of the character do you like and dislike? I hate people being rude, I hate lies and dishonesty. I can say that I am an honest, faithful and open person. I like kind and fair people! And I value faithfulness!!! What do you think about treason? I think this is treachery. I like animals very much ( though I don't have any pets now ). I adore dogs as they are very faithful!!! Should I tell you more about my city? That is a very good place with many interesting architecture. There are also many parks where I like to walk. I like nature and trees very much. Also I like to walk on the bank of the river late in the evening. That is so romantic when there is a moon on the sky and stars are shining... What do you think about this? Are you a romantic person? Could you tell me about your friends?
As for me, I am very picky in this. And though I have many acquaintances, I have only some true friends. I told them about you and they are very glad for us. They see changes in me . It happened after meeting with you. You gave me real life!!! Before I was so disappointed in men and thought I would never meet my love. But now I have you and I am so happy about this. You are so kind and intelligent. And I like you very much. Here I will close for now.
P.S. You know I would like to send you a hand written letter, some pictures and maybe some surprises. Could you write me your address, please. Here is mine if you would like to do the same: Ekaterina Kokovihina. 8, 13 Botkin street Magnitogorsk, Chelyabinsk area, 455020, Russia. Russian mail is not so reliable, therefore do not send anything dearly. Ekaterina.

Letter 4

Hi, my dear Rob!!!
I feel great as there is a letter from you.
Sorry, but I am in a low spirit today.
People in trolleys were so rude. Life in Russia is not so easy as many people in the world think. Life here is very cruel though I got used to it. But sometimes I feel so vulnerable and miserable here. I need a strong support and understanding. That is the reason I decided to have correspondence with the man from another country... You know, I am so happy I was able to find you among the millions in this world... I shall do for you mine picture in the Red Dress!! I love tattooes. My birthday on April, 2.
Thanks for very good 2 photos!!!
I liked your imaginations. I would like, that it was carried out!!! I am tired to work for 8-10 hours in a day and to be patient with my boss, and of the rude words of drunk clients... I get $73 dollars a month ( if to convert roubles in dollars ). That is why I am not able to get my personal computer and to write you letters more often. Sorry, dear, I am complaining.
Tell me about your country, please. It will uplift my spirits. I could not send you today a photo because the scanner in Internet cafe did not work. Till soon.

Letter 5

My dear Rob!!!
I want to say sorry for my last letter.
I hope you are not offended with me... I will not complain any more, life is a wonderful thing, indeed.
How are you today? Hope everything is fine with you. As for me, I feel good just a little bit sad that you are not with me.
You know, I got used to your letters so much, they are a part of me. I like you very much but I don't want to be betrayed again. I was in love with one person. It was a light and clan feeling... But he cheated and went to another woman. I was hurt but I was able to overcome this and for long time I have been alone. I was just afraid to have any relations again. Men in Russia drink much, smoke and get drugs.
I know you are not such a kind, I believe and trust you. You are my treasure!!!
Trolleys it trolley buses. Could you trust me, as we communicate only through the Internet? You have never met me in the real life! We have been corresponding for long time already and know much about each other as far as we can get from the letters.
You are a wonderful person and the best what I have in my life. I think about us all the time, about our meeting ( and I should say this excites me so much!!!) In my fantasies we are together, one whole! And I am waiting so much for the moment when these dreams come true! I would like to ask you a very serious question. Could I? What are you intentions about me? Would you like to meet with me?
Would you like me to come and visit you as a guest so we could get to know each other better? It could be some days, 10 or 15. I can receive now without problems the visa and is quiet arrive to you to stay for a while with you!?!?!?!? Then there can not be such opportunity because to receive the visa in your country very difficultly. So now the decision for you. WHETHER YOU SHOULD SOLVE YOU WANT our FIRST MEETING WHETHER OR NOT?!?!!!!!??!!! Perhaps, you think that is too early but life gives us such a wonderful chance to be happy and we should try not to miss it. LIFE is TOO SHORT. And consequently it is necessary to be more resolute in life...
Bye for now.

Letter 6

Hi, my dear Rob!!!
I understand that perhaps I was too open with you in my last letter.
And I understand that it may seem to be impossible...
But we should try it any way, I think. I little know some girls who had this process already and now they live a happy life with their foreign husbands. They have found their happiness and we should do our best if we want to be together.
I come to you any time and can stay there for 2 or 3 weeks ( or for the rest of my life, If you will want it!!!
If is not present, I shall go back!!!!)...
Of course, it depends on your ability also. So we should decide it together. What do you think about it.
I went to the tourist agency. They told me how to pay for visa. These are 192 dollars. It will be cost of all documents, it is the passport the visa, the medical information. I will need your help, dear. Hope you are able to do this for us?! They told me the best way to send money is Western Union. I went to the office of Western Union and they gave me the following information: To send money: Money amount should be send in words or figures. You should write the full name of receiver and receiver's full address. It is necessary for you from me. It is my address: Ekaterina Kokovihina. 8, 13 Botkin street Magnitogorsk, Chelyabinsk area, 455020, Russia. Also the full name of the sender and full address ( I will need it ). It is also necessary to know MTCN ( Money Transfer Control Number ), it consists from 10 digits and Expected amount. As you can send money through a site westernunion.com, but it will be necessary for this purpose your credit card. If it at you is. Dear, I hope we will manage with this. I want to be with you so much. Let's do all the best for our dream to come true. I will do everything from my side, I promise. Ekaterina.

Letter 7

Hi!!! One clever person said once :" The first half of life consists of the capacity to enjoy it without the chance, the last half consists of the chance without capacity." So we should you use every chance of our life to be happy. Being a woman I can't be happy without love, a beloved person near me I could hug and tell him that everything is fine as we are together. May be I am just incorrigible romantic but I think that every person has a right to experience what is LOVE. I dream about a strong family, our cosy "castle" where we can feel safe always, about our children having our features, to hear them laughing and to be proud that we are able to have our world full of happiness and to know that nobody will never destroy our small "castle".
Ok, enough with romance and philosophy. I will tell you now some facts about me to have an idea of the person I am. I work so I don't have much free time. But in any way, I try to have a full and complete life. I spend much time reading ( everything from classical books to woman's magazines ), music ( I get up and go to bed with music , it usually depends on my spirits), meeting friends ( though I am rather picky in this question, I have some true friends and love them very much ), etc. I can continue list of interests but if I do it I will have to publish it as book.
My character...I will better write what my friends say about me:" she is smart and serious but can act like a little girl sometimes, being funny and crazy. Can't stay one one place for long looking for new adventures. Responsible and hardworking being so lazy sometimes that even stays hungry the whole day. Tender and caring at the same time being very independent, loving and passionate but so hot-tempered sometimes that you can even see sparkles around her. She avoids conflicts and just a very soft woman..." You see I am not ideal but not a bad person really. And always try to be in a good shape. I care about my appearance and inside world as I don't want to be fat and grumpy. I am not a witch but just a very pretty and nice girl.
Ok, enough boasting.
This is my addr
I am looking forward to your reply.
Have a good day!!!!!
P.S. If you will answer me, I promise to send you the photo!!!
