Hello, my new friend! I am very pleased, that you have answered my letter. First of all I want to apologize for my not fast reply. I have no computer in my house. Yes, it's really pity...

Letter 2

Hello Gene! I am very glad to receive the letter from you today. I am very glad that you still have desire write to me. It is very good that does not confuse you, that I live in Russia. Your country seems to me very interesting and completely another than ours. Your country to be far from my city. Thanks for your wonderful photo.

Gene, as you already know I work as the bookkeeper in small firm. I am engaged in calculation of financial charges, expenses of this firm, various debits, the credits. I am engaged in distribution of monetary stream of our firm. In general all accounts department.. I hope you understand about what I speak.

We live far each other... It is a very big distance for both of us. But this distance only seems a big. It at all does not frighten me. It seems to me especially interesting. Don't you think so? I have read in newspaper (it was already probably for a long time ago) that in other advanced countries (Europe and Northern America) meets situation, that women are more thoughtless (not so serious) than men. Is it true? I very much would like to learn your opinion, also why do you search for the woman on the Internet? I am for the first time have acquaintance through the Internet. Now I wish tell you about me directly. I have never been married, and I want to marry. What I search in the man, most especial - friendship. I do not like to argue, altercate in a various occasion. I want meet somebody - who wants to have an entertainment, but understands, that life - is not always an entertainment. I need somebody who is fair, also care, warm and sexual. Also I believe there requirement good appeal between these two people. I want to have friend which later (if everything will be correct) could be more than just a friend. The most important parts of relations - love, trust and communication. But, without trust others two thing does not matter. You cannot contact someone irrespective even you love him or her, but not trusting him or her. The love is important, but you should trust blindly to other person, really love them because you should know they real love you back. Of course you have a question, "Why Russian women search husbands in other countries”. Because of many reasons, I think, and first of all - economic level of Russia. Our country is not rich and it is very difficult to find good work. Russian men cannot earn enough money to hold their family. They very lazy. They start to drink alcohol and become angry. It enters into divorce. Of course there are a lot of good men. Yes Gene, it is true. But they are already married. If they receive many money, anyway they also start spending all for nothing to drink alcohol or other women. All of them like "Kasanova". In our country amount of women is more than men. So men try to low women, though a woman is stronger physically and psychologically. She manages a household, brings up children and has a constant work in the same time. There is an opinion that Russian men in degradation now. I want to get married abroad as I’m concerned about my future. I want to have an ordinary, calm life, though I must leave my friends and change culture. It's very difficult. There are many men here which would like to be a part of my life, but a lot of them have been married before, have kids and are bitter about marriage all together. Some of them have trouble opening up and showing there true feelings and there are the ones who lie, cheat and disrespect any man they get involved with. These are only a few reasons why I am still single, I think it is better to be lonely than to be with someone and be miserable. So, my search for that perfect man continues. I had no time tell you, Gene, about it in my this letter because I write letters to you on my work as I have no a personal computer. I have no children but I would like to have them. I think, that I would be good mother. I never saw my parents. My parents have left me in a orphanage. I have no relatives, at least I did not know them. It is unpleasant for me to recollect my childhood. I grew in a orphanage, where lack of parent's warm... I know, how it is hard to not have relatives. So I am ready to give my future husband and children everything. They will not be lonely, because I shall surround them with warm and love. Living in orphanage I've understood the real values of the life: do kindness to people and it will come back to you doubled. There are many problems in Russia. People became evil and closed. That's why I decided to find a husband abroad Russia. If I'll have opportunity to leave from here for the best life, I'll do it... I will leave Russia. I shall not have a problems with it. Gene, I already have been in the Europe! So I have told you about my dreams. May be they will not come true but these are my dreams. And what about your dreams? I like to visit cinema. Oh, I love it! I like to read books. I have many free time after my work, therefore I have an opportunity to read. I love various love stories, detectives and very, very much I love classical russian literature. Also I love various music. I like different music, all depends on mood. When I'm sad I listen slow, sensual music. Jazz and blues. When I have good mood I listen modern music. I like pop, rock, dance. American music very pleasant to me (Jennifer Lopez "Baby I love You" and Aerosmith "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing", and many others.), as well as Russian. Bi-2, Rondo are Russian rock-groups, but it is not all my favorite groups, it's a lot of, at once all of them will not remember. Jeniffer Lopez, Aerosmith, Moby and other American groups. The American and European film in Russia has huge popularity. They, as believe, are the greatest. I love American films, and I love many American actors. I frequently go hiking in a wood, I like camping, BBQ or I like to go by bicycle on summer. I have own bicycle. In Winter I go skiing and skating. All these distract me from everyday problems. So what do you do, when you have problems and when you are sad? My hobby if it is possible to tell so - English language. I have loved English for a long time when I studied at school. In Russia the program of training necessarily includes foreign language, as a rule - English, German or French. I entered in group of the English language and I am still happy that I've made it. I like very much it language. After school, I continued studying English language in the institute. It is a very soft and easily-memorized language for me. Now I attend courses of the English language. I've been studing it for 16 years. I want to learn this language perfectly. I know that now I admit mistakes, but I hope you won't angry. I spent a lot time to write this letter. I wait your answer Gene. I have many ideas, but I do not want to rush this precious moment when two souls are looking towards each other across the continents for an everlasting friendship.
Your friend Ekaterina.

Letter 3

Hi Gene! How are you today? I hope you were pleased to receive my letter because when I'm receiving your letter, I really was admire. Many thanks to you. I have perfectly understood everything you wrote to me. As I already spoke you I know English rather well.

Gene, as you already know, I have no computer in my house and for this reason I'm writing to you from my work. Therefore I'm sorry, if not so quickly answered your letter.

I work from Monday till Friday and very much often on weekend. My working day begins at 8:00 and last to 17:00. Sometimes I'm working till 19.00.

But it's not easy, because my boss doesn't let use the computer with private purposes. We do not have unlimited Internet access on a work. I use a computer secretly to write HI to you (when my boss - not in office). Internet is expensive in Russia. My monthly income - 8000 roubles, it about 230 Euro. But this money suffices me and even is possible save my money. I can safely tell, that I adore travelling. I travelled in Russia, I saw Moscow, Samara, Saint-Petersburg, Sochi. Also I was in the Europe!!! Yes Gene, I have been in Europe not so long time ago.

Nine months ago. I went there because of my work. About 2 years I worked in a Advertising Agency. 5 person from our firm have gone to the USA for training. We went in Advertising Education Institute "News and Media Relations", Berlin - Germany, Paris - France and Stockholm - Sweden.
You heard about company "Temerlin"? There we training.
It was veryinteresting and cognitive for me.
I have the certificate which allows me to work in the Europe.

I have gone there as financial director.

Other my colleagues by other professions. Now I do not work in this firm any more. This firm has ceased to exist about 5 months ago.

Now I am usual bookkeeper in small firm.

But it is not difficult, I very much like my work. My new colleagues very good people. It is most important for me. We have very quickly found common interests. I have some friends. But now I have found you, Gene! I am very pleased, and I shall think about you. I tried to find love and happiness here, but I have felt lie. We have proverb in Russia: Bitter truth is better than sweet lie. I think, that you are fair man. Am I right? After all my histories you may think, that everything is bad, but it is not true. I have already told you, that my parents have left me in a orphanage. But, my childhood was not so difficult. I'm so think. Only it was very lonely without parents. I had many friends. I had very interesting childhood. When I became more adult... then I had more difficulties. Not only me. I think you understand, that it's hard for lonely kid in this severe world... But the most important never put your hands. It is necessary to go next level. I understood it for a long time. Don't you think so? It is true! Now I have a good life, I have friends. Good work. It is rather good here. I rent my apartment. I pay for it. I have no opportunity to buy it. It's very expensive for me here. I should work to have my own apartment 10 years! Gene, I make all independently: man's and female duties. I can hammer nails, carry heavy bags.... By the way I'm quite good plumber (sanitary technician). Life everything has learned me... I can hope only for myself. But sometimes I so want feel a strong shoulder near to me... Yes, I want real man for creation family. Gene, I have the most serious intentions. Very hard to meet geantlemen... Unfortunately. Therefore I am very glad that have met you. To me very pleasant our dialogue. For me not so important age distinction. it would not be important for me. These days I so strong wait for your letter. It helps me to distract from all. It as a sweet dream... It is other world for me. Forgive me, if my letter was sad, big and uninteresting to you. Just I wanted to tell you about my life. You should know about it. I promise you not write such letters anymore. Now I should finish my letter. I wait with alarm your answer. Also I want ask you: had you ever friend from other country? Is it important for you a nationality? Gene, what foodstuff do you like? I would like to discuss it with you tomorrow.

Yours friend Ekaterina.

Letter 4

Hi my most dear friend Gene. I very pleased to see your letter, and I think you'll pleased to see mine also. I'm always very glad receive your letters. I very much liked your country. It was very interesting and useful trip. I will remember Europe for ever. I hope sometime again to go there. We have studied much all useful, our dialogue was very easy, people were very polite with us. It is very pleasant.

Today I would like to talk with you about meal. I very much like preparing.

If I don't work as a bookkeeper, probably I'll be cook (smi-ile!).

Cooking is basis of health, cherishing life of family. I know many recipes of dishes. I love tasty and healthy foodstuffs. Yes, meal should be useful for health, it is most important. Gene, I very much love potato and various, diversified dishes from this vegetable. When I come home, at first I go on kitchen and I start preparing for myself something tasty. Mhh... I very much love those moments when my friends come to me. Always I trying to prepare for them any various fishes delicacy, a different kind of meat. I always try my friends estimated my abilities in cooking, and almost always it happen. Also I very much like to bake pies. Gene, do you know what is it "russian pies"? It is a stuffing grocery, wrapped up in a dough, and baked in an oven. The most important not use a microwave. Otherwise taste becomes absolutely another, besides it is badly baked thoroughly. If everything make correctly it is divine taste!!! You should eat this thing sometime... All my friends for a long time have estimated it. I began to prepare when I was 9 years, in a orphanage. I helped our cooks on kitchen. They have learned me almost for everything, that they knew. I am very grateful to them for it. But no one can estimate it, except for my friends. I very much love my friends. Now YOU in my life... You my friend too. Can I so think? I very much would want think you my FRIEND. I really want to know you, to speak with you, to take your hand and see your eyes. Probably it is very sincere now, but it is true, and I do not want to hide it. I always speak true and I do not like, when people - lie. I hate it. I very much like to dream. I am a dreamer.... I do not know good it is or bad. Since the childhood I dreamed. My teacher somehow told to us: "You must forget about your dreams!" She has told, that dreams do not bring happiness. She has told, that dreams bring only a pain and disappointment. May be she was right. Actually dreams come true not always. It happens, you have to do everything, all forces and all your aspiration to reach this purpose. But frequently it is not enough. Not everything in this life depends on us. Destiny! Her strong and invisible hands easily rearrange lives and hearts people. And then dream stops to be a desirable star, when it is failed during long time. But anyhow, I think, that impossible live, without dream and hope. When you have dream, our lifes is filled with sense. Dreaming, life becomes more interesting and more various. You start to think, analyze, choose and make decision. And each small victory, each defeated obstacle on your way to dream, each following step to your dream brings great pleasure. Your heart is filled with belief and hope. And you are inspired with thing, which waits for you in the end. You remember pleasure of victories and the defeated purposes better than a pain of losses and disappointments. For this reason I like to dream, though my dreams comes true not so often as I want. I am surprised, that I write to you all this. Gene, I never had the person with whom I could share my ideas. But now I have found you, and I am very pleased. I don't judge people whence they - or what color of skin they are. Sometime I would like to leave Russia. But only, I do not know when? Nobody waits for me there. Gene, your letters is the only thing now for me, outside of Russia. Your letters - a part of my life now. I very much would want so think. And I estimate it very much. You became very important for me. And to be frank, I am afraid to lose you. Forgive me for my frankness. If I offended you anyhow, or caused inconveniences, forgive me please. Do not stop write me. Write me every day, even if I cannot answer you every day. I shall answer you anyway. Gene, your letters give me forces, and my day is filled with pleasure. I hope, that you have not become angry. I shall wait for your letter with impatience. And now I want to ask you some questions: do you love people and what do you think about children living in a orphanage? Gene, I heard, that in the Europe, women don't like to prepare for tasty and healthy food and make homeworks, is it valid so? Do you belive in love? Love at first sight? I'm waiting for your letter.

Yours Ekaterina...

Letter 5

Hi my dear friend Gene. I waited this minute to answer you with impatience. I am very glad my letter was pleasant to you. Thanks for your wonderful photo.

I belive in love at first sight. But it's not a love as everyone think. It is such strange feeling... You feel that this person is pleasant to you also you want to communicate with him or her. Just you only think that it's love. Happens more often, that you or this person will be disappointed...

Gene, today I was late for work. My alarm clock has broken. But my boss did not saw my delay. Till this time he has not come. I always rise early in the morning. The rhythm of my life in which I live, forces me to be the morning person. My alarm clock does not ask me what is my nature. I always rise early, and I go to bed not so late.

Your letters become so close to my heart, and I am pleased to see them like a child. You write very pleasant letters. Your words are so pleasant, I feel myself...in heavens. Please, write me every day, even two words, I must know with you everything - is good. I shall be sure for you and I shall not worry. Your first e-mail was small light of sun when I have opened door on the other hand was the whole new world, which I never saw earlier. Beautiful, absolutely another and full of surprises. These relations, which we have begun through e-mail - begining new long friendship which could develop something more?

As you already know Gene, I was not for a long time in Europe. Term of my visa has not ended. Term of my visa 2 years, it is tourist visa. All my charges on trip were paid by firm in which I worked. I could not pay it independently. But it is firm does not exist any more. And I do not go any more in the Europe. Gene, my visa lays on a shelf...
But I hope visit again.

I very much liked Europe. It is absolute other countrys, not similar as ours. I very much would want to begin a life in Europe. Sometime.... Love is such intoxicating narcotic, which makes do mad, but sometimes funny actions. Only person in love can fill the whole bath with champaign, only person in love can give one million scarlet roses or stand whole night under balcony of the loved woman singing serenades. Today I spoke with my boss, I have asked him to use the Internet at least 25-30 minutes in day. He promised to think about it. I cant let him deprive me my private life how much it cost me. I have the most dear person, you Gene, I have understood it clearly yesterday when I went in park and thought about you. I have closed my eyes and thought about you. A wind was blowing, it scutched my hairs and enveloped my body by its chilly freshness. I don't know why, but I thought that you changed in wind, and you tenderly touched my hairs with you invisible hands. It seemed to me that I am situated somewhere near you. And my heart began beating as never before. I was so pleasant and I was ready to yell from happiness. People who were passing near me, probably thought, I am a strange lady, they saw me sitting on the bench with closed eye and smiling. But I didn't think about their opinion. I went and thought about you. It so, so heated my mood. I like to go along the street and breath fresh air, especially when the weather is warm. Actually I do not want to go home. It is very boringly and alone at home. Gene, sometimes I do not mention it, but sometimes when I come home with good mood, I very much want to speak, to share ideas with anyone, to have an entertainment. But my apartment is empty, and I should be in full loneliness. And my good mood disappears. I simply sit in an armchair and I look at a window or I prepare for a meal, may be somebody will come to me? But I nave to eat all independently. And when the silence deafen me when I hear as my blood flows in my veins, I hear movement of my eyelashes, at that moment becomes unbearably and my heart compresses. I don't know how to struggle with it. I can listen to music or read a book. But in some moment I understand that I just deceive myself. In fact I want a beloved person to be near me, with whom I could spend evenings, to meet morning, to speak about yesterday and to dream about tomorrow day. I want to walk and to feel a strong man arm holds me. I don't want to cook meals only for myself. I want somebody to appreciate it. But Gene, enough about it. I should perform my work. I having not enough time. I shall wait for your letter tomorrow. I shall wait your pleasant words.

Yours faithfully Ekaterina.

Letter 6

Hi, again Gene. I'm glad to see your letter today. I dreamed during my childhood, and I'm dreaming now. Of course, world of dreams - illusory world. But it is only thing I can do. I thought that you live in Europe. Forgive my error.

Now Gene, you know that I have the visa and at any moment I can arrive in your country. But it's only an opportunity. We still a little know about each other. Make a travel will not be a problem for me. Two reasons will not allow me to arrive to you right now. The first reason - I know about you not so much, and you too know about me a little. We are know each other only some days. But probably, these days the best time in my daily and not so interesting life. You became very much and very important close to me! I began understand it now when I'm waiting for your letters with impatience. Gene, I very much worry when I'm reading your letters... My heart is beaten so quick! We should be sure in our desires. We should be completely ready to our meeting. It is very serious step, I think you agree with me? We should be sure in each other... Trust - the most important thing in relations! Second reason of impossibility make our meeting in reality - money. I have no money for purchase of tickets now. Even now I do not plan a meeting, especially earlier I did not think about it. Therefore I did not start save money for trip. I do not know what will be "TOMORROW", we'll see... We live in a real life, therefore we cannot plunge into the world of dreams and imaginations long time. When a dream becomes obsession, it can bring only pain and disappointment. Practically dreams do not always realize. It happens that you use all power, all aspiration to make the dream come true. But as much you try, not all in this life depend on us. When the dream for a long time does not come true, as though you did not try, dream ceases to be that star, which will be for you lighthouse in ocean of the life, which will illuminate your way. But anyway Gene, I think that it is impossible to live without dreames and hopes. When there is a dream, the life is filled with sense. he dreams are those things that do us people that distinguishes us from the whole rest alive world. The dreams contribute variety in ordinary and grey life. The dreams force to think, analyse, choose and come to a conclusion. The Faith and Hope - an eternal satellites of our lifes. And regardless of what waits you at the end, joy of the victories and subordinated tops we remember better, than disappointment and pain of the defeats. You agree with me?I am surprised that I write you all this. I have never had a person, with whom I could share my thoughts. But now I have found you, Gene, and I am very glad. Forgive me for my frankness. If I said something superfluous forgive me please. Gene, do you like when your friends come to your home? And are you the quick-tempered person? I have a very warm feeling inside from all the things you have said about, how you feel when you think about me? My day brightens tremendously whenever I see an e-mail from you. I will wait for your letter with impatience.

Ekaterina, waiting for you...

Letter 7

Hello my dear Gene! I am very glad to receive your letter today. It was so pleasant to see yours letter in inbox. Thank you Gene that you do not forget about me and write me constantly. It's so very pleasant.
Thanks for your wonderful photo.

Thank you Gene that you are very attentive to me and also attentively read my letters. Thank you Gene for your attention. The attention and care - is very much high qualities. In our fast life we have no time for all this. But reading your letters, I see that you are not such as all others men... Your letters are filled with good feelings. I read it and I feel myself absolutely in another way. I do not know how explain it to you... I always wait your letters with impatience. It always brings to me so much delightful feelings. I am very glad that have met you Gene. Warm and tenderness - only thing I need. It is a problem of Russian men. Russian women makes everything for the man, for family. But she does not receive anything from him. Yes, the majority of women devoted to loved favourite man, I am sure, European women same. Only need to woman - some sensitive words and touch of his hands, and... understanding. This thing does not suffice in our life. Gene, really it is so difficult? I think, that not so difficult present your lady romantic evening and a supper with candles, but in Russia, as a rule, woman gives such gift, not the man... When woman carries heavy bags in the street, any man will not help her, he only will reject his sight and will go further. Why he should help woman? For this reason Russian woman never feels yourself HAPPY LADY in her heart. I don't think I am a beautiful lady, Russian men usually see in women sexual object. They believe, that the woman only should work, prepare and entertain the man when he wants it. Offend the woman - a usual thing for Russian men. Very much frequently meets, that the man beats his wife in house. Any respect, only in dream... Again dreams... Gene as you know, I like to prepare, but sometimes I would like to receive simple tenderness, love and attention. I do not want to offend all men, there are good men, but not enough. Very difficultly quickly determine, see a internal world of the man. Men very difficult essences. They try to hide their qualities. It is necessary to spend a lot of time... and then becomes known that this person not worthy your attention. I had relations with men of course. In my life were men. They were lovely, cheerful. When I started speak about serious intentions... They gradually leave my life. But only with one person I wanted to create family... This man deceived me. He slept with other women, even when he has suggested me to be his wife. I have found out about it later. It was seemed that he is very serious in his intentions... When he told me, that he could not constantly be with one woman. I could not suffer it anymore. My soul was wounded very much and broken. Since this moment I'm very seriously concern to relations with men. Majority of men which I met, still boys in their soul even in 35 years... I do not want to suffer all my life because of them! Gene I hope you understand everything I told you. Because I do not want any more come back to this theme... Now I would like to tell you about our beautiful city.

As you already know I live in Kazan. It is located on river Volga, it is the biggest river in Europe. Our city very ancient, it has been based in 1221 year! Our city has Kreml. It is the big stone wall which was constructed around of old city. This construction has been constructed for defense, for protection against enemies. It is very beautiful construction. But in other part of our city absolutely other, is located new city. It is very modern, expensive city. In our city about 1,350,000 thousand inhabitants. I think you understand it is the big city.

The big city has the big movement, a fast rhythm of a life, a garland of fires, easy show-windows, high buildings, fountains, cinemas, parks, theatres and temptations. It is wonderful, of course I love it. But we have so good places a zone of rest, a beach, parks. They are very beautiful. If was not any criminal, this place could be as paradise. But alas, criminal in the big cities, and in small - the worse part of our life. Unfortunately the criminal in Russia is located in very high level. But I do not want to tell you about these sad things. I should finish my letter. I want to ask you Gene, what makes you happy? What was the best gift which you received from the woman? I am timid, but I have kissed you hotly.

With the best regard, sincerely yours Ekaterina.

Letter 8

Hi dear friend Gene. Many thanks for your letter. It was the long-awaited letter. I am really madly glad to receive your letter. I am really glad that I have found you. I should tell you I have ocean of emotions and sensations which I had no in my heart before. And on this, my reason and my heart say me that I should answer by sincerity your constant sincerity. My heart and my reason says me that I should tell you what I feel now because it is a part of our friendship and I should share it with you.

I should tell you that it was required a lot of time to write and think over this letter, because I wanted to say just the right things to you. I didn't want to offend or upset you in anyway, and it's really bothered me that saying something wrong may do that. I normally speak directly from my heart, and I am right now, but sometimes, words must be carefully chosen. Gene, I feel somewhat lost when I have no opportunity to use a computer to read your letter. In my soul, I feel contentment and joy when I think about you. I have never done this in my life (tried to initiate a relationship halfway across the world), and I might have much to learn about how to proceed, but I am more than willing to learn whatever it takes to succeed if that is your desire as well. I also believe that couples should be the best friends possible, which trust and share with each other everything that they feel. Gene, I do not know if my word and thoughts make sense to you, and I try very hard to put them in typed words that you will feel and understand. I believe in God, and I believe that I have been put through trials to prepare me for meeting a man with whom I will spend the rest of my life loving, to better appreciate him, respect him and cherish the love, that he would give; only asking that I return the same. I hope that my words and letters are not boring to you, but they are much more than mere words, they are my thoughts and feelings, and I send them out to you. I very much desire that you find it in your heart and are comfortable with sharing your personal feelings with me, I wish to know you on a more intimate level, I would like you to share your dreams, your hopes, your feelings of the heart with me, I truly wish to connect with you on a level that goes way beyond mere friendship. Please do not think me foolish for thinking these things, I believe that in order for anything to succeed, you have to be honest, and that is what I am doing with you. Could you close your eyes for just a minute, and think and dream of what a life we could share, what it would be like, the fun of learning each other. Gene, I really believe that dreams do come true for people which dare to believe in dreams, because if they believe in them hard enough, dreams could become in reality. I guess that you are shocked that I feel this way, but here, where I was raised, the gift of true love from a man is something that is more similar to a Mirage or self-deception, rather than mutual feeling which two enamored people can give each other. I hope that I am not rambling on with my words. I have so much that I wish to share with you, and each time I write to you, I feel there is never enough time to say everything that I want to say, and I always feel that I have forgotten something important that I wanted to share with you. Gene, when I speak of you and I think of you, it does not matter for me what anyone else thinks. I want to tell that you are very beautiful for me. I mean, I find that you are not only attractive as a man, I also speak of the beauty that is within you, beauty of your internal world, and alas, this particular type of beauty is very special and rare. Most men have only appearances, but not have beauty inside, and this is where true beauty is. This, is that for me is the most important and significant in all limits of my character, my soul and my consciousness. Your words spoken to me with so much kindness and care, they express the beauty within you. I think that you are truly handsome, the essence of what beauty should be, and there is nothing that anyone could say to me that would compel to change my mind even a little bit. I want to reduce essence of all my letter only to one thought. I do not know if I could clearly explain all my thoughts and feelings, which overflow me now, or not. I want to tell that I feel, we become very good friends and I really enjoy our friendship. I aspire to learn you more and I dare to hope that you suppose a thought that our relations can develop more than it enough for simple friendship. It is that way which I feel. As always I hope that my letter finds you in good health and spirits, and I hope that every yours wish you have comes true one day. Gene I will look forward to your reply as always with anticipation and impatience....

With tenderness Ekaterina.

Letter 9

Hello my dear Gene. Thank you for your warm letter. My heart calms, when I receive your letter. I cannot tell you what I'm feeling in that moment. And every day I hope you feel the same as me. I always dreamed find somebody who would really special for me, who will come into my life! The one, who would understand me, encourages my efforts and shares my dreams. As a little girl I dreamed about man which will make me smile and laughter. Whom I could trust, who will never injure me.
Thanks for your wonderful photo.

Gene, today I want describe to you my usual daily day, since morning and till night. At 6:00 roars my alarm clock. I'm not so love my alarm clock. Because it so loudly roars, every time my head began break up from this noise. It was earlier... But in last days I wake up quickly because today I'll see your lovely letter. And because I saw you in dream. At 6:05 I'm going in bath, and I THINK ABOUT YOU! I wash and I clean a teeth. At 6:15 I make a small and not so long exercize and during it I THINK OF YOU! At 6:30 I prepare for a breakfast, as a rule strong tea or coffee and I warm up a meal, which I have prepared yesterday, if I haven't it I make a sandwich. I drink tea, I watch TV and I THINK ABOUT YOU! At 7:15 I leave my apartment and I go to my work. Usually, if weather good, I'm walking small distance, and I THINK ABOUT YOU! I like morning walk. I live very far from my work, anyway then I go by bus. I arrive to work vigorous and cheerful. At 7:55 I go to my cabinet. As rule there already wait for me my colleagues (all of them my friends). If I have opportunity, I check my mail. If there is no your message, I receive it later. And when Gene I see your letter it always, always brings to me so many positive emotions. It makes all my day CELEBRATING HOLLYDAY. It is the most long-awaited moment of my day. At 8:00 I began work, and I THINK ABOUT YOU! I think what I will write you today. I work and I think up my answer. Because I have no opportunity at once write to you. I should work. Sometimes I have a lot of work and I cannot write letter quickly. My letter for you should be written with my soul, wellwritten. Therefore it borrows a lot of time. At 12:00 a lunch break and we going in cafe in building near ours. Usually after dinner I write to you if I didn't do it earlier. Ohh... How strong I worry during this moment spelling letter for you... My heart beat more stronger and faster. This such strange sensation... At 13:00 I go again engage in working affairs, and I CONSTANTLY THINK ABOUT YOU! At 15:30, I with my colleagues make a small break, we drink tea, probably everybody make it. And I again THINK ABOUT YOU! At 17:00 I go home. Sometimes it happens later, about 19.00. We with my colleagues leave a building and we go on a busstop. I sit in the bus with ideas ABOUT YOU. I think what you do now... May be you have written to me new letter. Gene, I think about it even after sending you my new letter. But I do not hurry to check it. Because tomorrow I shall check again it and I shall wait it with the big impatience. After I leave bus and I'm going slowly. I feel myself very well because I THINK ABOUT YOU! I come into apartment... There nobody... Nobody waits for me there... Sometimes I feel very sadly. I change clothes, I take a shower, and I imagine that YOU WITH ME! (Smile) After that I have a little rest. Then I make a supper, alone, but I smile, because I imagine, that YOU SIT OPPOSITE TO ME! Sometimes come to me my friends, (but it happens not so often). Then I prepare for something especial for them. I THINK ABOUT YOU! Sometimes I go for walk. If no, I listen to music, I read book, I watch TV, I make various homework, and I THINK ABOUT YOU! (of course not all simultaneously). (Smile) At 22:00 I go to bed. During this moment I THINK ONLY ABOUT YOU! And during this moment very much frequently I cry... Because you are not with me... But tomorrow I shall receive your new letter. And I easily fall asleep, may be in dream I'll see you. Well, my most dear Gene, I should go now to work. Only let me send you a kiss from Russian woman who thinking about you very often being far from you.. .. I kiss you Gene, and I with impatience wait for your answer.

Ekaterina waits for you.

Letter 10

Hi my most desired Gene. I am very glad to receive your letter again.
Thank you that you do not forget about me and always continue write me, even if I cannot answer you. I often spend a free time one. Thanks for your wonderful photo.

I am very glad that have met you! Your letters always radiate so much light in my dark sky. Thank you for your fine words. Today as well as always I have seen you in my dreams again!!! You were going to me but you will not kiss me, you only look and smile, you put your hand upon my face and look into my eyes. It is a loving feeling but yet you hold back, not knowing what to do. It is a wonderful feeling, one of contentment, one of security. I felt myself very strange, I wanted embrace you my arms, to gently kiss you and tell you everything will be ok, to feel our passion, to share all things in our beautiful in life. I would be your sweet heart and soul if you would wish to be in this way. Gene, you know, in the childhood I dreamed to find the Prince, with whom I can go on THE Edge OF THE EARTH. Only later, after many years I understood: in real life I cannot meet prince, only in dream... and in a fairy tales. There is NO ideal men. But very similar to an ideal match which is necessary for you, you can find. I can confidentially tell you, that you are - man of my dreams... I can not explain an origin of love. I can not explain why woman draws to the man. And I can not explain why man draws to the woman. It occurs at a subconscious level. Gene, I know that you feel something to me, and I feel that my heart is open for your. I need you very much. I do not present my life without your letters. I know that I want to give you all my tenderness, which for a long time I saved inside me. Nothing can be compared to this feeling of filling up somebody's life. The excitement, which tortures me while I'm waiting for your letters every day. The feeling, which fills every corner of my heart. Every step I make is safe, because I feel you around me. You are my dream, you are my angel, you are my soul, you are my life! I want to be your "Lady in red", about which sang Chris De Burgh. And I want you to know, that I have never felt like this before. You brighten my days and give me the strength to carry on, fighting every day for you. You have shown me deepest emotions and feelings I've kept inside of me for so long. I feel that our relations with you develop into something greater... It so excites my mood. I don't know what I shall do without your letters... I every day with impatience wait your letters. I always worry when I see your letter in inbox. These feelings are not similar on anything.

I want to ask you Gene, what we shall do further... I think that we should undertake some steps... Because I cannot, I shall not sustain long dialogue through letters.

Every day I understand that you borrow more, more and more places in my heart. I for a long time was alone. And our dialogue becomes bigger than simple dialogue. I am so glad that have met you! You seem to me man of my dream. And I very much want my dream came true... Gene, think about it. I shall wait for your letter... As well as always.

Ekaterina dreaming about you...

Letter 11

Hi man of my dream... Gene I am so glad to receive your letter. Your letters always make me... It makes me the happiest woman on this planet!!! I have strong desire to shout, I want to shout and all people heard me. I want everyone knew that I have you Gene. You are my prince!!! You the man of my dream!!! We have found each other... I am ready to tell you about everything concealed in my soul... I don't want to have secrets from you... I want you did read every pages of my book... I want to write together with you our common book... I hope very much, you too want write with me this book... You and I! Like "Scorpions" song... Our book will be the most unusual and interesting, I'm sure in it! This idea make me crazy... I never thought earlier, that I can tell such frank words to somebody... May be someone will think that the letter can endure everything you like... But only not I!!! I do not want to hide from you anything......... It is very important for me, very important! You should know that in depth of my soul is hidden the woman who wants to be happy, which aspires to be happy. I want you here with me, I very much want you will be the happiest man. We deserve happiness! Don't you think so? I want to go with you, keeping for a hands. I want everyone envied us... In fact we have found each other! Last nights I very badly sleep... I have received a sleeplessness because all nights long I think only about you. My ideas with you...

And it makes me sad.... Because you there... You are far in Europe. I'm here in Russia! We are divided with huge distance. Thousand miles... I am glad and it is very sadly for me in the same time. I have so much different ideas in my head... Why I do not live in your country??? Gene, why you do not live in Russia... Why we are divided with this huge space... It makes me from mad...................... Only I'm grateful to that person who invented a computer and the Internet... It helped me to become the happiest woman. In spite of anything I am happy, because I have you. You became sense of my life. You as a beacon which shines and direct me through a fog and darkness of my lost life... Yes! It is true! Probably you are very confused and embarrassed now... Probably my words are very unexpected for you... How I want to see you now. Right now, during this moment!!! Through the letter it is very easy to tell these words.. .. I could not tell you these words if you will be here right now. I do not know... Now I'm not self-assured... I am sure in my feelings, but it seems to me that you will not want to talk to me anymore... May be I was vain so think... But I want that you knew about my feelings. I don't want something was inexpressible between us. I very much hope to receive your letter tomorrow... I very much hope for your understanding. Just Gene, the happiness is such strange thing... It is necessary to struggle, struggle with itself and with other world to be happy. Let each drop of a rain and a snowflake of a snowfall will be my kiss on your cheeks... Let beams of the sun will be heat of my gentle embraces...

Ekaterina dreaming about you...

Letter 12

Hi my heart and my soul Gene! I have dear friend - Gene, and I always think about him, I want to know all about him. Absolutly everything! (Smile). I'm so glad to receive your letter today. I very much hoped that you will understand me and will write letter for the woman which thinks and dreams about you. Tell me about your ideas and dreams. And now I shall make it. Forgive, but I do not understand your claims. I answered all your questions. If I that have passed that, you can ask me again. I with pleasure will answer...

I have news, may be it will be bad or good to you. I do not know... Yesterday in our firm came people from housing committee (State Supervision of the Available housing). They made extraordinary check of our building. They gave to us very bad results. Today my boss told me I shall have 3 months of a vacation. Because our building is in an extreme condition. A building where located our firm, will be closed on repair. Approximately in 1 week, and I shall have a vacation, but I was not pleased. I cannot refuse this vacation. In a building of our firm will be made major overhaul. Repair will last 3 months. I have begun to cry, because it means that I can't write to you, I can't use a computer. Gene, I was so frightened that I can lose you. I imagined that I should spend this vacation in my apartment, between four walls. I should sit in loneliness and think of you. I should aimlessly wander on streets and fall asleep with tears on eyes every night. I have been waiting for my vacation in the next summer and I receive it NOW, but they don't bring pleasure to me. Because in the next summer, I cannot receive my vacation. I imagined that I should spend some months without you and awful emptiness had appeared in my heart. All world around became uninteresting for me and I told myself: "NO! It is not for me!" Last night I thought of us. About you and me. Gene, I couldn't fall asleep again. I had been crying for a long time because of despair. My thoughts were mixed, like inking waves during a storm, and I, like a small ship was sank in the sea of despair. With the rising of sun I calmed and hold on myself. And I have put a hard aim, the aim of all my life - to be with a man who loves me and I love him by all my heart. I thought what I can see you. I decided to spend this vacation with you. I thought that I can meet you. Just meet. That's all what I want now. I have passport and I have Shengen visa. Of course our relations still very short. But our correspondence became very important for me. I hope for you too... I thought that we should continue our dialogue, but this situation makes impossible to continue it further. I should stop to write you in a week... It is so sad.. I do not want it happened. Besides Gene through letters is impossible to learn completely each other. Letters will not give the full description of the person. I hope you understand about what I told you. But I already could understand and feel you, you seem to me very good, lovely, serious and the most important reliable man. I am so glad that have met you!!! I very much would not want lose you, Gene. Your letters became the important element of my daily life. I do not want very much live without you. I ask you to think about it. I shall be very glad and happy if we can meet.

Since I started talking to you, I just can't stop thinking of you Gene.


Your Ekaterina.

Letter 13

Hello my lovely, most desired and gentle Gene . Thanks for your wonderful photo. I am very glad to receive your letter. All night long I thought of you my dear Gene . I very badly slept because of different ideas in my head. I thought What reaction you will have after my last letter... But today I am glad find out that you understand my problem concerning work. It is a pity to me that it happened... Very sadly that our correspondence soon will end... But simultaneously with it destiny gives us a new push in our relations. Now we have two variants. I think you understand it. Gene we should make a choice: meeting or to interrupt our correspondence for long time. I do not know that I shall do if I shall receive not your letters every day... Therefore I think that we should make a choice for benefit of a meeting.

You know my situation concerning money. I have very a few cash. About 75 Euro. But I shall have additional money (severance pay, money for holiday), about 200 Euro. I think ,Gene , you understand that it not is enough for purchase of tickets. I know precisely that I should buy the ticket to you in the USA and back. Date of return flight has no value because I can transfer it for any other time. I should convince workers of the airport that I have an opportunity to return back to Russia. The international airport is in Moscow. It is not so far from me, about 500 kilometers I can reach there by bus. I want to meet you, but it will be impossible without your help. It is sad truth... But if I shall arrive to you, I think I can be employed and shall return to you all money. I would not want to miss our chance to be together.

We should define when we can meet. I think the best variant for us would be a soon meeting, in 8-10 days after I'll receive holiday. I have only 6-7 days up to the end of it. Then I cannot write to you. You know that I write you from my work. Gene I am always so glad to receive your magic letters every day. It always gives me million positive emotions. People meet once. They get acquainted. They begin to meet. Some force of them draws. They want to be together to learn each other better to like each other. Some people when learned other person, they have enough of it, and anything does not occur any more... "The Book became read"... "Book" put on a shelf in a case. Either for him or her it is necessary other "book"... Some people all life loving, they reading this "book" all theirs life. Other people when will read this "book", do not put it on a shelf in a case, and they writes itself continuation of this book. Each person is the writer of his or her life if he or she wants... I am "writer". I hope you too... Let's write our book together. I do not present my life without you. You became for me the only man. I very much would want to meet you and to continue our life TOGETHER! I hope my words do not shock you... Gene we are familiar not so for a long time, but you already in my heart... And I do not want you left from there. I so want to see you every day, to feel you, to speak with you, to breathe aroma of your body, to feel heat of your strong hands... I so wish to kiss you... I think you too have same desires. Gene , I'm not little girl anymore, and I want to be near me strong, loving, kind man... And which would wish me as the woman. I do not want to be alone anymore, I want to be happy... Gene , I want to make you happiest man in the world! I think it is possible! And lawful... (Smile). I definitely want to be with you! I ask you to think about it. I shall wait for your letter with impatience. Thousand the most gentle and passionate kisses.

Yours loving Ekaterina.

Letter 15

Hi my lovely and the best in the world man, my dear Gene. Thank you for your tender and very kind letter. I feel it's filled with kindness and caress. I am so glad that you wish to meet me. I feel this meeting will turn my life absolutly another side. Not only my... I think you too will feel yourself like in another way.

Gene, I still cannot believe that you have appeared in my life... I am very, very grateful to destiny that she has presented you to me!!! You much mean for me. I am glad that soon we shall be together!!!

Remained very few time. 3 days. After that nobody will prevent our meeting. Moscow... Plane... And you will meet me! Every day, every minute Gene, I think about it. I think about us. It gives me so many positive emotions. Our correspondence has brought new sense in my usual and simple life.

Today I went to travel agency. I have found out about cost of the ticket to fly to you. Now I know that is necessary me to pay 820 euro.
This cost includes ticket in the America and back (this obligatory condition), insurance, road up to Moscow by bus, a meal in road to Moscow. As you already know I have 75 euro and in 2 days I shall have additional 120 euro. In a result, I don't have enough 625 euro.

Also Gene, today I went to some banks in our city. There I have found out that the fastest and (the most important) reliable way to transfer money is use Western Union or Money Gram. In America almost in each city banks where is working Western Union or Money Gram, this thing told me bank's workers. therefore transfer of money not difficultly in our city also many banks where the Western Union is located. Therefore to transfer this money will not be difficult. For money transfer it is necessary to know my name and my address, it costs not so much. Therefore Gene I ask you in the nearest 3 days, while I have an opportunity, to send me this money, 625 euro. I hope that in your city there is a Western Union and it will be simple for you.

Letter 17

Lovely, I read your letter and my tears drip on the cold keyboard of the computer, I do not know what to answer to you. I am very much upset, such change of our dialogue, but I did not think, what is it will touch me. I so was pleased last days, that all goes well and we be speed we can together and now I really do not know that to me to make, my girlfriend has prepared to you gifts and I have bought that for you, but I am afraid that all my dreams of speed meeting now have failed in to be gone, tomorrow I should pay the second payment in agency and what I there shall say?

Hi my love, hi
You have not learned, and it's I
Your love has come to you
Searching so there are a lot of years, you one
And I here, I shall not leave
And you sit down
I should much tell, to you about that as I love
Though what for I do not want, to prove to you love
You see you see
Though it is necessary look, eyes close and in this complete darkness
By hand me mention
You hear this knock
It is hearts are knocked on paradise
And a door you do not close
And better it is wider than them open
Lovely excuse, but I can not continue, because my eyes are completely filled with tears, lovely I am afraid of tomorrow's day, I shall lose all my money and there will be a complete fool before agency, I do not know as I shall go through tomorrow's day and whether I can go through it, I shall wait your letter tomorrow, before that how to go in agency.
Thousand kisses.

Yours Ekaterina.

Letter 18

Hi Gene. I feel badly. Your letters bring to me frustration. I do not like to swear and I am sorry about you if has not justified your hopes. I do not try to operate you, but also I will not allow to operate me! Serious relations are feelings and a duty of both people!!! You should know it. And sometimes to concede to the favourite person, to search for compromises. I do not try to operate you, I only explain my situation and I offer you some decisions. I wish to consult on you and to know your opinion. And to make of the decision only in common. As to some errors in my letters, you should understand, that English language I native, and sometimes there are difficulties with transfer. I apologised.... I have addressed in travel agency what to do documents for travel to the USA. And they are valid. All my documents are ready and are in transport agency. I wish to arrive to you and to be with you, but now there are some difficulties!!! I have concluded the contract with travel agency, for this purpose what to do travel documents, and plane tickets. Now I cannot refuse treaty provisions. If I break off the contract, I should pay to agency monetary indemnification. I would be very happy to meet you in the person, and for me it is not important, in what way you will receive tickets the plane for me. I understand that all responsibility for my actions lays only on me.... I wait your answer, and your opinion.

Always yours and only yours Ekaterina.

Letter 19

Hi Gene. I cannot understand.... You wish to book tickets of the plane for me, but cannot help me with payment of tickets with travel agency... There is more simple way. Why you cannot help me with payment of tickets with travel agency!? If I do not solve a problem in travel agency, I cannot leave the country. All my documents are in travel agency.

Only reflexions.

Letter 20

It is your choice. I do not speak all time about money, I only wish to solve a problem. ok. I wish you the best choice. Good-bye
