Letter(s) to Doug (USA)

Letter 1

Hello!!!! Have a good day.I do hope you remember me because I wrote you recently and you replied to me.I am sorry that I couldn't reply earlier.There was not much in my profile because I didn't know what should I write there, I've never posted my profile before and I was not sure how it works.
I'm in Russia now, but soon I will leave Russia to make my trip so you can forget about our distance. I've never been abroad, only in the South of Russia, the Black Sea, Sochi. I like warm climate )) I think my level of English is quite good, but although it's very simple. I can't read philosophy books in English or business books))) Anyway I want to improve my English while staying over there. I write and speak English by myself. My spoken English is good too. We have Discovery channel here in English (my friend has cable TV, so I come to watch it!). I like this channel so much! Very interesting! I'm sending two pics, I hope you will like them. I will send more next time.
I was in Moscow to book my interiew for the trip to the USA,it took almost two weeks to travel to Moscow and back. You know that it is my first time I try correspondence with a man in a virtual space.
I am not a very good user of the Intenet and I do hope that I will be lucky to meet a good man.
I guess I need to explain why I do it.The thing is that I will work abroad for three months or so and I would like to meet a nice man to be my guide or just to be a good friend to spend time with while I am there. I suppose it is hard enough to live in some foreign town without friends and besides I have never been abroad. You know I've been liviving in a small town here in Russia all my life and I am just afraid to be lost. Besides I would like to see a real life (not some TV shows) and it is impossible to see a real life without a person who knows all sides of the life. And you should also know that I don't want to live in Russia because I don't have any chances here, it is hardly possible to explain in a few words but I want you to know all my plans. I can do some simple job as a waitress, or to work in some shop. And later when I improve my English I want to find a better job!
The agency helps me to get the visa, work permission and all travel documents and they will help me to get a job. One of my friend worked in USA for three months last year,and she was so pleased and she is going to repeat this trip again. I am coming to the USA due to the special programm for young people who want to work abroad and I think it is the right way for me.
I am lost here, and hopefully I will be able to change my life. I am full of plans and different dreams. I am sure that you will be not disappoined to meet me in the real life if we meet. At least I hope so.
I don't have a special plan or something like that for a new relationship, I'm open to everything! I don't want to be an abuse for you, if you will not want me as your woman, we can be just friends!
But I hope you like me and my photos! I had a boyfriend, but it was nothing serious and we broke up one year ago because he moved to Vladivostok.
OK, I will finish this email... I don't know what else I could write you in my first email. Please answer me even if you don't like me, because you are the only man I am responding to. If you don't like me I will continue my search. I hope so much to receive your answer!!!
I hope we can have a nice communication by emails so I will know somebody is waiting for me over there! Not so long time to wait for me, really? I hope you are my soulmate and we match each other! Tell me about yourself and the place where you live! And send me photos!
Please write me back here, I write you from my private email address now.
Maybe after reading my letter you will find me a little crazy but I am not sure I know the right way to meet a good man without real meeting and you know it is my first try though the Internet. I will leave my town in a few days or so to fly to Moscow again to complete all the things. It is said at the agency that I will work all day and I think we might share evenings together to get to know each other better. If you have any interest to meet me I will be more than happy!!!
With best regards from Russia
Ludmila ( this my name )

Letter 2

Hello Doug, thank's for your reply so much!!!
And also Im very glad to see your photo, its very good and nice, i like it very much.
I hope soon I will be able to come to your area by my birthday and we will meet each other! I'm not sure why I picked you but I feel something special about you!
This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any common interests.
As you know my name is Ludmila and my last name is Oshurkova. So you already know my full name. I'm 29 years old, not that young I think? My birthday is March 14. I'm 167 cm tall (5.5.) and 51 kg weight (about 120 pounds, I'm not sure how much it is in pound but I'm not fat!). I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times a week and two times a week I go to the swimming pool.
I have an older sister, you can see her with me on photos. She is 32 years old now.
She recently divorced and she had 4 years old daughter. Her husband cheated on her.
We live with our parents in 3 room apartment. The name of my city is Baikalsk, it's near Irkutsk city. Baikalsk is quite small city and Irkutsk is a large city, the main city in our district.
Have you ever heard about the lake Baykal? It's near Irkutsk! It's the deepest and cleanest lake in the whole world. It's very beautiful!
I graduated from Irkutsk Humanitarian University two years ago, contemporary dance faculty. Yes we have such faculty in Humanitarian University! So I'm a professional dancer. I don't want to have a dancer's career because I will have not much time for my private life and for relationship with a man. I work as a dance teacher, I teach children from 12 to 17 years how to dance! Also I have a certificate of fitness instructor, this is my another hobby. So it would be perfect if later I will find a work as instructor or teacher of dances!!! I think it's a very good job for a woman, I'm always in a good shape and I keep myself not that busy! Do you know how to dance? If not I can teach you! I can dance many different styles.
When I come to your city I will work as a waitress in a restaurant. I would like to work as a dance teacher but I think you understand it's not possible to arrange such work by Internet because they want to see how well I dance. Anyway I will try to find such work when I come over there. Or maybe not a dancer but aerobics instructor, I think it's also very good job. I'm sending few photos for you today! I hope you are not tired to look at my photos?
First two pics were taken in Sochi (the Black Sea) last summer. The next two pics were taken during New Year's holidays while we were shopping for presents with my sister. In winter I like skiing, although we have cold winters... our summers are warm usually.
Mom is much younger then my father and they are very happy together. My mother is a teacher of music in the school. I can play piano also, she teached me how to play piano. I finished music school and I still play piano about once a week. My father is retired engineer.
I like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge. I like music at all! I want to try how to ride a motorcycle someday! I've never tried it!I do not know where exactly I fly because I have not decided yet. Do you have an International Airport in your city? Please write me it's name an code. Or write me the name of the nearest Airport to you. I just wish to have somebody expecting me at the airport and I do not wish to be alone there. I shall fly to the USA directly from Moscow and I hope you will want to meet me at the airport and to be my guide and it would be great to meet you face to face and to spend some time together.I know that it is not an easy thing as it might seem, but there is nothing impossible,right?
I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer. If you want I can call you when I'm in Moscow, it would be nice to talk to you. I will be really happy to call you from Moscow. Now I'm not at home often and of you call me my father will pick up the phone and he can't speak any English and he will be shocked to hear the English speech.
I still didn't tell him about you but I'm going to tell him this week, I will write you about his thoughts on this topic! I suppose in few days I will leave for Moscow and start my trip! There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?
My address here is Russia, Baikalsk, Pushkina 12 street, flat 4. So now you have a representation of who I am....
I just can tell you that I enjoy life and I try to live to the fullest, I like to try new things. I'm not that smart.. I was not that good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! But I'm very tender, caring, artistic, faithful, decent person. Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own minuses and pluses. I don't look any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be faithful to me and ready to create a happy family with me and I will do everything to make him happy. I'm looking for a soulmate!
OK... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind to you and if I sent it to the right destination you should receive it by evening )))) I hope you will catch my kiss somehow )))
Ludmila Oshurkova

Letter 3

just want to add few things... I think last time I wrote you not all my thoughts...
My mind is always in a mess when I write you because it's hard to write everything to somebody who is so far away. I don't remember if I wrote last time I've never been married, don't have kids but I love them and they love me!
I wrote you I teach children how to dance and I know how to understand their wishes and worries.
I don't smoke, drink occasionally. And I want to tell you that I always wanted to find an older man.
Why? I have two answers..
Firstly, I think older men are much more serious and they can take care of me, they are more experienced in life and can teach me many things.
'The older the violin, the sweeter the music' I believe in it...

I think I'm not that young already but I don't have much experience in life and I want to have someone who has more experience in life then me. Secondly... maybe I'm not right about it... but I want to be honest I've always had such worry... if I marry a man nearly my age... and after some years I will become not that young and beautiful... I think it's more hard for a woman to be attractive then for a man... and he will find a younger mistress and I will become very miserable. I don't want my man to be unfaithful. I know I can be faithful to my man and I will never cheat on him. But this is just my worries. This is not my goal. Please tell me if you think you will love your woman at any age and not find a younger one? Can you be faithful?
I think it's better to forget about one's age, age is just a number. And sorry my profile was not accurate. Honestly I thought it will be just like a joke to post my profile, I just wanted to try if my English is well enough to talk to someone from another country and I wanted to know if I can communicate with foreign people.
But now it's not just I want to try my skills...
I became attracted to you and I really want to meet you.
If you will not like me or something else we can be just friends.
I hope I will get my work visa soon in Moscow and all documents and come to you! I don't have any area limits with this visa so I can work where I want. And one more thing..
i'm sending few pics...hope you like them...
I'm just trying to be honest with you and write you all my thoughts on different issues.
Please be always honest with me also....
I will write you later, I will look if I have more nice photos to send you.
Have a good day!
