Letter 1

Hi, my dear Jan, Nice to meet you here and I am very glad that you wrote me and really interesting in me. It is rarely you can meet such nice and interesting person and I hope that we could try to do all our best to know more about each other. I am not here for playing games and first of all I wish to tell you that I don't use any agencies and I know English quite good. I was studding it a lot at school, then in the University and also I was visiting English courses during two years. My full name is Ekaterina, but my family and close friends call me Katya or Kate. I am 28 years old and I was born on the 22nd of April in 1980 in Novomoskovsk town that is in Dnepropetrovsk region here in Ukraine. I have a high education and I am working right now as fitness trainer in sport club in my town. This is quite hard work, but I like it as it is my hobby too. I decided to be a sportsman because of my father who is also a sportsman too and he is a swimmer, but right now he is not working any more in sport because of his health. My mom is a teacher of Literature at school and she is still working. I have my younger sister, who is 25 years old and she is already married and has a wonderful son. She is living with her husband on the West of Ukraine and we see each other quite rarely. I have never been married and I don't have children. I am family oriented person and I was raised in a nice and educated family full of love and care. My parents are a good example of real love. They are together during 30 years and they still love each other. Looking at them I wish to have such family too. I was in relations before and as every one I also have my past that I wish to forget as a nightmare. I tried to begin a new life here but without any results. Some days ago, I found out that one of my friend is going married with a person from USA who she met in Internet and this was the push for me to try my luck here. I think that you have the same reason why you are here also. My dear, I think that from the very beginning we need to be first of all honest to each other and always tell the truth even if it is hurt. But I any way, I think that this is the main in relations to be honest and open to each other and to trust. Yes, I know that it will be difficult to trust a person who you have never seen in real life, but we need to try. I wish to know you, your life, your past, your plans for the future, what you like and dislike. Everything you wish to tell me I will be very glad to read. Please, tell me the story of your life in your next letter. I will be waiting for your reply. Kisses, Kate.
