Hello, my dear friend Mats!
Thank you for your interest to me.

Please,let me introduce myself:
My name is Ira
I'm 28 years old. I live in a small city Anthracite, it's situated in the Eastern part of Ukraine.
It's difficult to describe my own character. People, closed to me consider me reliable, loyal,trustworthy, honest, optimistic, tender,caring, sensual, affectionate and adventurous person. I am also and open-minded person,very romantic and have a good sense of humor.
I love children very much. Since school I studied English and now I learned it at the University. Also I work as a shop assistant in the cosmetic shop.
I regularly attend sport center as I think a girl should always keep fit.
If to speak about my hobbies, I have variety of them and most of them are similar to other people, what can I add, dancing, history of human civilization, just life in all its magnificence. I like active life.
I like to hear songs with guitar and to sit near opened fire. I like to walk, sea, fresh wind, and sun of course.
I like cooking,I collect different recipes and I like to try to cook something new.
I enjoy Russian,French, Italian and Japanese cuisine. I also enjoy social gathering or a quit evening at home,reading an interesting book.
I'm looking for serious relation.
I know nobody is perfect in the world. So, I'm looking for a serious, well-educated, honest, sociable, sincere, kind and a little romantic man.
It don't mean for me nation or age. It is more important to have strong feelings:
love, mutual understanding and trust.
I think that every person should use every chance to find his or her happiness.
I have already lost hope to find my soul mate and I have decided to try to make it with the help of the Internet. Life is too short to use it only for thinking and dreaming.
I intend to meet serious man for relation. Do you agree with me?
In relation with man, first of all, I appreciate love, loyalty, reliability, support and understanding to each other.
The main thing for me in my life is to create a strong, healthy family based on harmonious, warm and sincere relations.
I see an ideal future for me in devoting myself to the family.
I'm really very interested in you and I'm waiting impatiently for your letter
