Letter 1

Hi! I'm so happy to receive your reply! It was good to meet you on dating site! You made my day! Why I chose you? I found you at the site by chance. Telling from the beginning of the story I know a woman who is on a dating site. That profile wasn't mine, it was a profile of that woman, but she let me find someone from the dating site from her profile. I don't know how to use the site, so I found you by chance and wrote you. I didn't know what will happen, I didn't know if you write me or not. But I am glad that we met each other. I've never tried to find someone in Internet but soon I will come to your country to work there, so I will have a work visa and a permission to work. My friend worked in Australia somewhere near Sydney two years ago. She worked in amusement park from 11 am till 6 pm and from 7 pm till 3 am she worked in a bar. Of course she was always tired but she made very good money! I think I can do it too! Now she is in Europe, working for 3 months. She wrote me she liked to work in Australia better! I want to find a man who can tell me about the life over there and maybe of course something more then just a friend!!! I don't have a boyfriend so I'm open and ready for new adventures!!! 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 (where will be Olympic Games). I like warm climate )) According to my visa I can work in your country for 3 months, I can prolong it to 6 months if I want. I think my level of English is not so bad, but still it is 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. 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 live in small town here in Russia, and I decided to find someone by Internet not to be alone when I make my trip. The life is different in every country and I think it's hard to live there when you don't know anybody. 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! I will start my trip from Moscow, I will go there to pass English tests and have an interview. I think everything will be OK! Working program helps me to get the visa, permission for work and all travel documents and they will help me to get job. It's a special program for young people who is not lazy and make some money. Also they can settle me with another girls from Russia and Brazil who came to work there too, it's very cheap. Here I can earn only about 100-150$ a month to work from mornig till late evening (my city is really small). I think I can change my life and see many wonderful things and just different life. I am full of plans and different dreams. I am sure you will be not disappointed to meet me in real life!!! 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 don't want me as your woman, we can be just friends! But I hope you'll 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 Ekaterinburg. OK, I will finish this email... I don't know what else I could write you in my first email. Please reply to 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 can match each other! Tell me about yourself and the place where you live! And send me photos! Sorry for being too talkative!!! Please write me back here, I write you from my private email address now.


Letter 2

Hello Mick!!! Thanks for your reply so much!!!
I hope soon I will be able to come to your area by my birthday and we will meet each other! This time I will write you more about myself.
I've never been married, don't have kids but I love them and they love me!
I don't smoke, drink occasionally. And I want to tell you that I always wanted to find an older man. 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. I think you should know more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any common interests. I'm 28 years old, not that young I suppose? My birthday is on 13 of March. I'm 166 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 which you can see from my photos!). 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 a 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 Aromashevo, it's near Tyumen city. Aromashevo is quite small city unlike Tyumen which is a large city, the main city in our district. I graduated from Tyumen Humanitarian University few years ago, the 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 can find a work as a fitness 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 the level of my dancing. Anyway I will try to find this kind of work when I come over there. Or maybe not a dancer but aerobic( fitness) 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?
I'm sending few pics of my city from different seasons so you can see where I live. You can see pics of the building where I live, the building where I work.
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 tought me to play piano. I finished music school and I still play piano about once a week. My father is retired engineer. I cannot say I enjoy one particular type of music. It might sound strange for you but I can listen to almost everything. The list is endless actually. But anyway, there are a couple of things I have always enjoyed to listen to. They are Enigma and Deep Forest. I adore their music. It is so sensual and helps relax a lot. I also like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge.
I want to try how to ride a motorcycle someday! I've never tried it!
By the way, do you have an International Airport in your city?
Please write me the name and the code of it.
Or write me the name of the nearest airport to you.
I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer.
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, Aromashevo, Lenina 21 street, flat 14.
So now you know 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 for 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 )))


Letter 3

Hello Mick,
I am glad to get a reply from you and I think I am a lucky one because I met such a wonderful man like you in the Internet! And I also hope I will be lucky to meet you in real life soon!!!!!! You know yesterday I told my parents about you. Now I guess they don't worry about my trip so much, at least I hope so. I was tyring to calm them down because I don't want them to be nervous about me and though I am almost 29 years old, I am still a little girl for my parents and I will always be. Now they know that you are a kind man and help me if I need your help. You can show me your city and surroundings and tell me about the culture of your country and about the life over there.

I don't remember if I told you that I love cooking. I will cook some tasty Russian food for you and you'll tell me what you think. Most famous food in Russia are Pelmeni, vareniki, blini, borsch, okroshka! I bet you will like it!!! I also like Italian and sea food. I love lasagna and pizza!!!!!!! Yummy! I am the best in cooking lasagna, this is what my friends and family say. I also love Mexican food because it is spicy, though I don't cook Mexican food too often. I like cooking cakes and try something new! My favourite is cheese cake with raspberry!!! Hm, you know when I talk about food I am getting hungry:). I eat everything and I am not on any kind of diets, I just don't eat after 7pm. It also helps me to be in a good shape. I can cook many tasty things for you when we meet! Ok, enough about food! You know ...almost all Russian men are like bears, they are very rude and dishonest. They can't be nice and polite. They can't be jentlemen! They don't want to work and they don't want to have families since it is a big responsibility to have a family. Judging by your letters you are absolutely not like them and I happy to know that!!! I like to go to the cinema! I really like to watch a good movie with my friends. 50 of movies in our cinemas are Russian and about 50 American. Yesterday I was watching "Pirates of Carribean" (part 3) I really like such kind of movies!!! If you didn't see this movie yet, I would advice you to watch it!!! Could you recommend me any American movie so I can watch it? What is your favorite movie and actor? Some time age I watched 'Perfume' (by a novel of Patrick Zuskind). I've read this novel and I like it so much! Breathtaking! Anyway I think the book is better then the movie. Soooooooooooooooo......... what else could I say? I have a driver's licence but I don't have a car. My father has a Russian car and he gives me his car sometimes. I like not only the cinema! I like theatre and opera too, I like ballet. Unfortunately there is only one small theatre in my city and there is nothing interesting. If I want to go to ballet, for example, I should go to Tyumen, there sometimes can come famous Russian actors and dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive. And now I have some good news for you! After sending this email I will go home, take my bags and go to Tyumen! From there I will fly to Moscow! I was on a plane only two times in my life and I'm afraid to fly! I hope my plane will not fall down! I'm really afraid! So it is several hours from Tyumen to Moscow and I will come to Moscow late night. I don't think I will live in hotel there, it's very expensive. You know, due to statistics Moscow is the second most expensive city in the world after Tokyo. I will rent a room in apartment, it will be cheaper then renting a room in a hotel. Of course it will be very modest but it's OK for me! When I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. I will write you as soon as I can!!! In Moscow I will spend a week or maybe even more, I should make all final arrangements with my documents and after that I will come to you! I've never been to Moscow before and I'm so nervous now... I've never went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city! You know... I had such great desire to start my trip already.. and now I feel myself like a newborn kitten who has even didn't open his eyes... I just want to hug my mommy and don't want to go anywhere... but I know that's my dream to start a new life and I will try to turn in to reality! Soon you will hear some news from me from Moscow!!!!!!!!

Many kisses to you!
I hope I'm the one for you!

From nervous and excited Tatiana

Letter 4

Well, hello my dear Mick!!!
I'm so excited to write you again!!!!!!!!!! I'm in Moscow! You can't imagine how happy I am that I already started my trip to you! I still cannot believe I've done it! WOW! As I wrote you I was scared to fly on the plane but everything was OK and I'm still alive )))) Moscow is really a big city! I've been told the population of Moscow is about 10 million of people! From the Airport I went by bus... it was so long way... about 1 hour and 30 minutes. I've seen so many nice places in Moscow while going by bus! When I got off the plane in the Moscow Airport policeman asked me about passport and he looked at me like I am an enemy ))) I think all people here (and everywhere) are a little crazy because of terrorism. Everything here is very expensive, not like in my city... and everywhere are big crowds of people! Everywhere is so many people! I'm still uncomfortable about it but I feel soon it will be OK. I've been to few shops here today and I see goods are much more expensive here then in my native city. I found a place to stay, I rent a room from an old woman. She is about 70 years old. She said her husband died 2 years ago and she has two grown up children but they are already married and don't come to visit her very often so she is alone and she has not much money so she give in rent rooms in her apartment. She is very nice woman )) She said I have to be very careful. You know... she said many girls from small cities come to big cities... or even abroad... they are looking for a better future and fortune but because they are from small cities they didn't imagine their way to find the happiness can be not as easy as they thought... and some of them can end up as prostitutes or something like that. She said I should be careful when I meet you!! But I don't worry about you! I feel with all my heart you are really nice man! And I think I'm enough educated not to end up as a prostitute and I will find my happiness! Sorry I wrote you about my worries.. I have nobody to write about it. My parents and my sister are worried enough about me and I don't want to make them worry more. I think that's really good I've met you! I can write you about everything. I miss my parents... but I'm getting better with every hour )) Now I'm very hungry and I will go and eat something. Please confirm the name of airport and be sure you wrote it correctly. Please confirm me your full name. Please don't be mad! I just want to be sure I have your contacts! This way I will feel more confident. I am afraid to make any mistake... I hope everything will be fine. My last name is Owsyannikova. So you already know my full name. I've been told I may have all further information about my trip tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. As soon as I learn it I will write you an email!!! I don't have enough time now to write more things.

With great excitement and many kisses from Moscow,

Your Tatiana Owsyannikova

I passed all tests and everything and all papers are ready. I will pass my final interview at the embassy this week and they will put all stamps in my documents and I will come to see you! I can't say I'm too much nervous. I know you are waiting for me and I hope you will tell me everything about your country and show me some nice places over there. I will travel eco class, I hope my flight will be OK. I will be able to stay over there during three months and then I can prolong my visa or change my status. I will have a work visa and I hope everything will works out! I want to meet you and talk to you and get to know you better. I feel we will like each other, at least I hope so. If you decide you know me not well enough and want to be only friends with me I shall rent a room. But I hope you will like me!!!!!!!!!! I have a good feeling about it! As I wrote you I will come later this week and I will stay here for several days. So now I have to make final arrangements with my documents. I told you I passed all tests, I have all documents I need to get a job and everything. Please try to help me to finish my arrangements. And I need to pay for this flight. People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally, so I need to buy roundtrip tickets (with returning date). I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that I can't use because it is their businees to arrange all travel details and they have some extra money from all the things, you see it is just business.I think that you will be able to help me because I don't know anybody here and only you are my hope now, I think everything in your hands and I believe that you will not leave me here alone.please borrow some money. I am sure I will be able to return all your money back after a few weeks, I will get salary and I will collect the sum I own from you. To be fair I am not sure I know what to say because I hate to ask but now I have no different way, you see. Please help me it is only money and much more important if we will meet in person I will do my best, you won`t be disappoined. I see that it sounds a little crazy but I can't believe that in the worst case I have to return home,they all will laugh at me.I think it rests with you to decide and I feel that you will help me because you are kind. I have about 400 US dollars yet and I think I need about 900 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight! (I had 1200 dollars, but flight from Tyumen, opening visa, medical insurance and all travel needs costed about 800 dollars). For truth I didn`t expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now I see that its a very strict rule.

Please send it today by Western Union or Money Gram I will write you details:
