Letter(s) to Bob (USA)

Letter 1

Hello Bob,

My name is Valentina. I'm a lonely young woman, and I dream to find my twin soul, a man with whom we would fall in love and create a family. I'm searching for a man, who would be my kindred spirit, honest, kind hearted, with family values, who also feels lack of love and warmth in his life. I am here with only serious intentions, and I ask you to answer me only if you are also serious and don't play games.

A little about me: I live in Ukraine, in Alushta city. I have never been married, have no children. I want very much to create a family, have a good caring and affectionate husband whom I could give all my love and warmth that I have in my heart. I hope, we will keep talking and knowing each other better by the letters. You are welcome to write me here valyavalysha@mail.ru



Letter 2

Hello dear Bob!

Thank you for your interest and your letter. I'm very happy to get acquainted with you. I would like to know everything about you, about your country, about your profession, about your hobbies, interests.

Let's make acquaintance. My name is Valentina. It is my full name, but friends call me Valya. I'm 27 years old. I'm 169 cm in height and 50 kg in weight. I have deep grey eyes and long fair hair. I was born in Ukraine, in the maritime town Alushta and I'm living here for present time. It is a resort town on the seaside of the Black sea and we have a picturesque nature. I like nature very much. Sometimes I go for a walk to the seaside, which is situated not far from my house and see how the sun sits down. I'm a very good swimmer, and in summer I adore to spend time at the seaside, to tan, swim, play volleyball with my friends. So, you can see that swimming is my most favorite hobby. Also I like to play bowling very much. I like to listen to music. I like listening to different kinds of music such as R&B, pop, rock. It depends on my mood. And what about you, what kind of music do you prefer? My favorite singers are Enrique Iglesias, Ferge, Melene Farmer, Kristina Aguilera, and many Russian and Ukrainian singers. I work as a consultant at a department store. I cell female clothes. My family is small. I live with my mother, but I have many relatives. I'm fond of reading very much. I like to read psychological books, detective stories, love stories. When I have free time I like meet with my friends and spend time with them. In summer we go to the seaside, in winter we go to the skating rink, to the theater, movie, visit cafes, or gather together at someone’s home.

I don't look for a perfect man, I look for a man, who would be the best friend for me, my lover and a good father for our future children. I'm a woman, who wants to build a happy strong family. The man of my dreams is easy – going, honest, faithful, caring, affectionate, romantic, sensual and passionate. I want to marry once and till the end of my days, to have a good happy family. I'm not searching for the rich or very handsome man, what I really value in a man are his inner qualities, moral values, kind and generous heart. I can fall in love with a man, with whom I would feel like under the stone wall, with whom it would always be easy and comfortable, even despite his age, skin color, and religion.

Every week I go to the gym with my friends and after it I like to swim in a swimming pool. I think that sports help me to be in good shape and to rise my mood. And what about you? Do you like sports? What kind of it do you prefer? I am so curious. And I want to know everything about you! Tell me about your city and about lifestyle in it. Why are you looking for your soul mate through the Internet? I am a lonely young lady, and I don’t play games. I have a big genuine desire to meet my man through the Internet. I want to walk under the moon light with the openhearted, respectful, kind, romantic person, who will become my husband. Hand in hand, eyes to eyes, tender whisper... We could look at the deep-red sunset and meet sunrise together. I want to share this wonderful feeling 'love' with my beloved person. Please, tell me about your dreams, your wishes. Maybe we are the halves of one whole?

So if you have some questions for me, I would answer them with pleasure. I think that we will find much in common. Please send me some of your photos I would like to see your nice smile. If you are interested in me, please write me about your life, what are you doing in your free time? What kind of movies do you like to watch? What music do you like I hope to see your letter soon, I will be waiting.

Sincerely yours,

Letter 3

Hello dear Bob,

I’m glad you wrote back! Thanks for telling me more about yourself, I appreciate very much that you shared so much things about you with me. I want to say that you are very interesting and nice man, and I hope very much that we will find in each other our soul mates and hopefully will become a nice and happy couple. To tell you the truth a warm feeling is growing in my heart, and I like it very much. I would like to share with you some information about my life.
I asked you to send me your pictures in my previous letter. I am still waiting for them.

Don't worry about the age difference. It is not a problem for me, because for me inner qualities and character of a man is important, not the outer beauty. I think the age - difference can not be an obstacle for people who have sincere feelings to each other and who are destined to be together.
What do you mean causal photos? All my photos are from my life. And why don't you send me yours?

I was born on the 3 of May in 1981. I'm a Taurus by zodiac sign. So I'm a calm, persistent person. I was brought up by my mother Vera. She educated me to be a good housewife, to keep house clean, to cook well, to be a real woman in everything. So, cooking is my another hobby. I can cook lots of delicious dishes and bake cakes. Especially I'm the best in Ukrainian dishes. I like sweets very much. I like chocolate, fruits, cakes, and my favorite dish is ice-cream.

I am easy – going, have a good temper, and I’m almost always in a good mood, I smile often, and I’m optimistic by nature. I think, that life is so as we see it, that’s why I try to see everything in bright colors, never give up and trust people. Also I always try to be myself, and never pretend someone else or put false faces. I’m romantic, and I like to dream very much. Sometimes I imagine how me and my beloved man are sitting together holding our hands on the beach near the sea and kissing. Or maybe how he embraces me with his strong and tender arms. I had no father, sometimes I feel so lonely without a strong man by my side. I want to have serious relations, true love with the man who has sincere feelings for me. Ukrainian men are great egoists and they treat women like housewives, but not like a lady. Sometimes, it seems that they are interested only in football, beer and they have no any family values and can't be faithful to their women. That’s why I think, that abroad I'll be able to find a good couple for myself, a man, who knows how to be a man, who has family values, who needs a good loving, faithful and caring wife.

I'm ready to open my heart to you, because I think you are a very gentle person, who will not offend me. The only problem is that my native language is Ukrainian and my knowledge of English is very poor at the moment to correspond with you personally. It is only a school level. It is better to say I don't know it at all. So, I use the help of a translator to write my letters to you and read yours, but I hope, that the fact that I do not speak English will not stop your desire to communicate with me. I know that learning English is very important, not only for me, but also for us, for our future relations, and I will learn it. I hope very much that we will have a chance to meet with you in person in near future. I think, that meeting in person will help us to learn each other better and understand if we match each other as a couple, if we want to continue our relations. I need you in my real life, but not just correspond with you by letters. Letters will help us to learn each other better, and I hope very much that we will have a chance to meet in person.

Also I want to tell you that I'm ready to move abroad, and create a family there, with a man, with whom we would fall in love. I'm not afraid to leave my motherland, I think, that it’s no matter in which country you live, the main is to be happy, to have a family, to know that you are not alone in this world, that you have your beloved man next to you. I'm very adaptable person, and I can easily find a common language with others, that’s why I'm ready to start a new stage in my life in a foreign country.

As you know from my previous letter, I live with my mother. My father left us when I was 5, I barely remember him. He left my mother, because he found another woman, and I know that now he lives somewhere in Russia, and has a family there. Unfortunately, he is not interested in my life, and does not want to communicate with me, thought I made lots of attempts to find him. My mother still loves him, and doesn’t want to marry once again, though I want very much that she find her happiness too. I have other relatives, except my mother I have grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. I would like to know more about your family.

I have a lot of questions to you, what is your favorite dish? What is your favorite place to rest? What do you appreciate in woman? I have a lot of things to tell you. I would like to share my dreams with you but I don't know if you are really interested in it.

Waiting for your reply.
