Letter 1

Hello, my Friend !!!

I am so happy that you have shown your interest to me and have decided to get acquainted with me!!! I also have a very strong desire to get to know you better and I believe that our acquaintance will lead to very strong relationship and hopefully to creating a family. Well, we'll see. And now let me tell you something about myself.

My name is Helena.... Helena Beautiful.... Like in a fairy-tale which my mother used to read to me when I was a litlle girl. At that time I thought that I was a princess, but, frankly speaking, I am still thinking like that and I know for sure that somewhere in this big world my prince is waiting for me and someday soon I will meet him..
Or maybe I have already met him.... and maybe I am writing a letter to him now :-))). Ok, time will tell, and meanwhile I will continue telling you about myself. My name is Helena, but all my friends and my mother call me just Lena, so you can call me like this as well. I was born on a cold winter day, when it was snowing, namely, on the 11th of December 1981, so, I am 28 years old now. I live in a beautiful country called Ukraine. And what about you?

My dear , I must admit that I love my life, and I am happy. And I feel even happier when everybody around me is happy as well. But to feel completely happy I need my second half.

I love animals very much, that is why I work at a veterinary clinic, and my work really gives a great pleasure. I hope that your work gives a pleasure to you as well, doesn't it? By the way, where do you work?

What else can I tell you about myself? Well, I even don’t know, so you can just ask me and I will answer your questions with a great pleasure. So, I will finish my letter to you now.... and I will waiting impatiently for your answer.

I am wishing you a wonderful day and hope to hear from you soon.

Yours cordially,

Hello my dear!!!!

It was really nice to get the letter from you!!! Thanks for writing...
I was right, you are really a very interesting and special person. I was reading your letter with a great pleasure:) And I hope that you will read my letter with a great pleasure as well :-)))

Can I ask you to tell me about your family? It is really interesting to know about people who made such a present to this Earth as you :) As for my family, I have mother, she lives in the country. Her name is Lubov’. It can be translated in English as “love”. I think that you will agree with me, that it is a wonderful name. She is a very nice person. She always tries to help me and my sister Yana with anything she can… Sometimes it is just a good word, and sometimes it is a really useful advice. I love her with all my soul.

As for my father, I don’t know where he is now… They divorced when I was about 3 years old, and my sister was 6. He left the family because he found some other woman, so he left the city with her forever. Yes, I was a little girl, but I remember that time very well. It was terrible. I can only imagine how painful it was for my mother, when me and my sister asked why father left.

If two people love each other, if they have mutual understanding, they are like the one, and sometimes there are not any words needed to be spoken... Two parts of one soul will understand each other without any word... I dream about good and strong family with such mutual understanding... I didn't see such relationship when I was a young girl, so I will do everything to have a really strong family.

I hope that the man who will become my love and my life, will love me, and will never hurt me. As for me, I will do anything, to be a good and loving wife...

I know that you have only one question in your mind right now: why I decided to look for a man abroad, not in Ukraine… It is really easy to answer. I look at men in my country, and I find that they are like my father. They don’t have any family values… All of them are interested in having fun, drinking alcohol and hanging out with friends. I don’t want my man to be like that. And what about you? Tell me what is the most important thing for you in the family? What you are looking for?

Well, I think it is enough for now…

Hope to hear from you soon…

Hello my honey!!

How are you? What's new and wonderful in your life? I hope my presence in your life makes you a little happier:) Because your presence in my life makes me...not only happy...but you have changed my life completely !!! I get up in the morning ...and smile. I have my breakfast...and smile. I'm going for a work ....and I am smiling to all the people sitting in the bus...and they're smiling to me as

So you make me happy - and I want to share my wonderful mood with
everybody:) And you know, I became a chatterer:) talking about you all the day long. Maybe my friends and co-workers are already tired of me :-((((.

By the way, speaking about my work... For me it was really hard day at work today. A lot of different villages are situated close to our town, so, sometimes we need to go there. As I am veterinary helper, I have to go there as well. So, it was raining and a lot of farm animals got some disease. Actually, I don’t know what that was, but we had to go in 7 villages in two hours!!! It was really hard… I hope that when I will come to work tomorrow, everything will be OK, and owners will tell that theirs cows and goats are feeling better. Well, tomorrow we will see if I am right... And what about you? How was your day? What were you doing? And what was the weather there in your country?

I wonder if it is too different from the weather we have. I have never been abroad, so I even can’t imagine how the world looks like, if it is the same like in my country, or may be it is quite different… Of course, I have seen a lot of pictures, TV-programs, and so on… But to see the picture, and to live, to feel it in real life, it is quite different things...

Well, honey, it is time for me to stop here.
I hope to hear from you soon.

Your Helena.

Letter 4

Hi, my dear!

Thanks for writing! I'm so happy that you wrote to me!!! I haven't known before that the letter from the other side of our planet will bring so much joy and happiness to my heart!!!

How are you there? What new has happened in your life since we spoke for the last time? What were you doing yesterday in the evening???
Were you thinking about me? Were you watching TV or were you reading a book?

Honey, I must confess to you that I don't like watching TV. Maybe this is so because my Mom always says that books make our brains work))) Maybe because when I am reading, I am living the other life, different from mine. I like different authors, but Bulgakov and Murakami are my favorite ones. I think, you know them both. Bulgakov's "Master and Margarita" is well-known throughout the world. That is the most enchanting book for me. I read it many times, and every time i find smth new for me in it. The understanding of this book depends of your own life experience. Murakami is a famous Japanese writer. His books are about the life of modern people in big cities. About their loneliness, about what makes them happy and unhappy. The most famous Murakami's book is "Hunting for the Sheep" , but I like "My beloved Satellite" most. It is difficult to translate the name of this book 'cause in Russian the name is ''my beloved Sputnic'' and the word "sputnic" has 2 meanings - "satellite" and "partner in life''. Double
meaning)))) And what about you? Do you like more- to watch TV or to read books? What are your favourite films and books? And do you like going to the museums and theatres? I do like a lot!!!

By the way, I forgot to tell you in my last letter that I need to go to the Internet cafe to get to the Internet and to my mail box. That’s why I can’t get the letters several times a day. Usually I come here once a day. As for the English, I have studied it in school, and I was sure that my knowledge will be enough to understand English speaking person. But now I see that I need some help. I hope that it is not for a long time, as we will talk, and I will know English better. And as you can guess, my school was some time ago, may be I just need time to remember. Anyway, it is good that here are people who can help me with English now.

You know, when I am reading your letter, it is like I am listening to you, and I even hear your beautiful voice. I write to you, and talk to you. I even want to whisper something special to your ear. I feel that I miss you.

I have so much love inside of me, and I really want to share it with someone special. It is so hard to be alone, and not to have a person to share the life with. So, I was looking for you, and I was lucky to find you:)

I will be waiting for your answer with great impatience…
