Letter 1

Hello Fred!

We had a talk at plentyoffish.

I am very glad that you have chosen me among many other beautiful ladies. I think it certainly is an unusual acquaintance at least for me as it is taking place via world wide web. But who knows may be there is a chance for us here? May be it'll turn out something more special than acquaintance in the street, in the park or at the party? Don't you think it is sometimes possible to say more in the letter than when meeting in person looking into each other's eyes? And after we got to know each other better we will have decided to meet in real life actually. I wish you could look at my face at the moment, you would see a slight smile on it, my heart prompts me that you are trustworthy person so I don't want this smile ever to disappear. I have a sensation that I have known you for quite a period of time as if we met before. But at any case I feel like getting to know you more now. Fred, I'd like to know about your hobbies, your dreams, your favorite color? the way you usually spend your day? your favorite dish for breakfast:)? I'll appreciate if you tell me about your family, your friends and relations. So now I'd like to write you about myself. My name is Vera. But my friends and my family often call me Veronica I'm 24, my birthday is on January 20 I will turn 25. I was born in the east of Ukraine in the town of Lugansk. I live together with my mother who's name is Irina, she is 45 and she works as a primary school teacher. I also have a bother Anton, he is now a pupil of 2nd year. He is 8 years old. Mother was up-bringing us all alone. My dad left us when Anton was born. Now I am in the 5th grade of the Medical university, I am going to be a doctor, therapeutist. My dream was always to help people in need to do something good in my life. So I think it was probably the reason I selected to specialize in medical field. My family isn't very large but we get along nicely and have some relatives everywhere in CIS. We have a family tradition to have a family re-union each year at our granny's place. She lives in a rural area in Lugansk region. We gather there and go to the picnic in the woods. This is so great when one happy family gets together. I am a bit envious to my granny as she was born at times when people were ruled by true love and sincere feelings. She managed to grow up such wonderful children. It's so different now. Most of men in Ukraine and Russian exchanged their social roles, and it happens so that women work hard and men just sit at home with nothing to do. So I guess it was the reason that made me apply to the Internet hoping to meet my soul mate which was waiting for me, a stranger from far away land. Tell me Fred if you could be that stranger for your Veronica? I really hope that you write me back, Sincerely, Vera

Hello my dear Fred,
Honestly speaking I could hardly wait for this moment. I was anguished with the question if you would write me? if you would still interested in me? Because when you look at the photo it is not possible to know everything about the person. But now I feel much at ease and can confidently continue our acquaintance. Do you want me to?
It's a beautiful morning today and this is one more reason we will have work out nicely:) And this I hope in its turn will lead us to our further meeting.
And who knows but maybe someone will write a book or compose a legend of our life: Because all happens for a reason and your Veronica is looking for her lost stranger soul-mate.
By the way my family says you their regards. To tell you the truth they also want to know more about you.
Do you mind? I have created a little piece of paradise at home. By the way my piece of paradise includes my cute and naughty parrot Kesha (sometimes I want to pluck him) : and beautiful fish-tank with numerous nice and colorful fishes. It is so relaxing to watch them after a hard day. I like to sit by the fish-tank watching them at least 10 minutes after I come home. And I am very fond of my flowers. But to tell you the truth I prefer buying them for my loving mother. As for cats and dogs I do not have them as I think that they need much space and it is a tournament for them to live in a small flat. What do you think, Fred? Do you have any pets and hobbies? If so, I will be glad to hear of them. One of my hobbies is jogging in the morning.
I want to keep fit and stay in shape. After that I take shower. While my family is waking up, I am beginning to cook light breakfast. Tell me what do you like for breakfast? Please, tell me more about your life and your interests, I am eager to know more about you. And I am curious to hear from you what does Love mean to you?
And are you ready for serious relationship?
Good-bye for now, my dear Fred, if you have any questions you would like to know about me, I will be glad to answer them. Waiting for your sincere reply, Sincerely, Vera

Hello my dear Fred!

Thank you so much for the photo with your daughter! It was so pleasant to get it! I was at home for the weekend. We celebrated the 8th of March, International All Women's Day. How are you doing? First of all I want to send you regards from my family. But it is my friends who are most curious about our acquaintance. They ask me more questions than I ask you. I want to know all about you and I want our communication with each new letter from you gradually evolve into something more. I know you for just a short time but I have feeling that I've known you for a long time and feel very comfortable with you. May be you pulled some string in my heart and I reacted in this way?:) You know, Fred, some of my female friends have fun all nights long some lead irregular way of life, they can kiss one man in the afternoon and date another one in the evening. I can't actually understand them. Because as for me there's nothing better than hugs and kiss of a beloved person not someone irrelevant to you. I don't judge them after all every one builds his or her life in own way. Tell me what you think about it? Do you approve of it? Do you think it is a proper way of behavior for future mother and wife, Fred? But I rather think if you and me, I do belive that if a person wishes truly something he or she will strive and achieve it. I do hope something works out with us. Fred, I don't know if I like travelling, I have never been abroad before! Sincerely, Your Vera

Letter 4

Hello my dear Fred!
Thanks for 2 photos! I am surprised that you have been to Lugansk! I have a very good news to share with you today. I was told that they would direct me to work in the regional hospital of our city after I get my diploma.
You can't imagine darling how happy I am with the news. This means the white stripe to start in my life.
I got the internship direction to the most prestigious hospital in town.
I got acquainted with you and I hope you are the man I've been looking for. Honey how would you react if I arranged a small party for us and introduce
you to my family and friends?
At the beginning of our communication I was rather anxious if you were interested in me and if you wanted to continue writing to me. And now I got used and got closer to you and I can hardly imagine my life was so boring and colorless without knowing you.
I now have a closer person that I can share my thoughts and feelings with and ask for a piece of advice at times. My mother often ask me about you and I always tell that you are my best friend I hope you will become more than just good friend to me. You know there are such things I would like tell you. I had a dream this night as if I was in the beach and making a sandcastle, and a guy approaches me smiling broadly and talks to me but I can not make out his words as it is some strange language to me, but I can see now that this is how I always imagined you Fred and I recognize your smile.
You take me in your arms and being me to the water and we start splashing and enjoying each other’s company.
Tell me how do you picture our first meeting? Do you have fantasies? Have you already told anyone that you were corresponding with me? Its seems to me that you've stolen my heart, what am I to do? My dear I am sorry for not telling you this but I must confess that I attended the Internet cafe to write to you and paid for translation of our correspondence and sending you letters. The thing is that I was interested in knowing you and tried to take these expenses myself and hoped that it would work out somehow. But now I just don't know what to do, Fred, I am anguishing because they charge me too much money for writing to you and I am afraid it will be impossible for me to go on writing you. I don't know if my feelings are worth something to you but your feelings to me worth very much to me, and I am really concerned of it. I do hope there is a way out because I wouldn't like to break with up with you.
I have to pay 4,59 dollars for complex processing of each letter as they call it, this includes translation and typing, plus scanning and taking my pictures,
placing my ad on the web and typing, Internet access fees are also included.
There is an option to pay 99 dollars for unlimited correspondence services and be able to write to each other as many letters as we want. Please dear think about it and if you give us a chance I am sure that we will gain more than loose from our relations.
I'll be glad if you come to Lugansk to meet me! I love life and now I am in excitement to hear from you more. With tenderness, Yours Vera

Letter 5

Hello my darling Fred!

I confess that I have thought a lot of how to continue our correspondence as all my scholarship of $15 will last only to pay for my 3 letters to you. I don't think that writing via regular mail is a better way out because it doesn't make sense to wait for two or three weeks before the letter arrives to you and than wait for another two weeks before your reply will reach me. I do not need a pen pal I need live communication I want to meet you in real life, Fred. I want this meeting to be a turning point for us, to make us closer. But we can realize it only step by step getting to know each other and making plans together. I hope that our letters will be the bridge for our communication. I don't want to play with you, I want to have my female happiness and want to be what I am. I want not only dream of passionate kisses and tender strokes of my beloved but sense them and realize my tenderness and love. I know it must be hard for you to make out in your feelings and made up your mind as we don't know each other very well and haven't even met in person. That's why I don't want to hasten you Fred or have any pressure on you to do something you are not ready for. But if you finally decide to give us a chance here is my home address:

Petrova Vera,
geroev Brestskoy kreposti street, 18/12
Lugansk, 91000
Ukraine,

If you want to continue our relations you could make Western Union transfer to my name so as I could pay for unlimited correspondence with you. In this way we will realize our dreams and make our meeting much closer, Fred. With tender kiss and hope, Your Vera
