Letter 1

Hello!
This is me again. (CONNECTINGSINGLES)
This is my main email, write here.
As I promised I am going to tell you more about myself now.
My name is Valentina.
I am 28 years old.
I have never been married and I have no children.
My height is 5.4(166cm) and my weigh is 110(51kg). You can have an impression about it from my picture.
Many people says that I am looks like Angelina Jolie.
My friends says the same. I have already heard this from many people. But you must understand I am another woman.
And I am woman with own soul character and we looks like the same on pics only.
I am a very affectionate person. I believe in a life full of physical, emotional and spiritual happiness. And I want to share such a life with a person who wants the same.
I love the outdoors, spending time at home with a beloved person.
I love nature, water, picnics.
But I don’t do this as often as I would like it to be as I don’t have the one who could share it with me.
I am honestly ready to open my heart to a person who could really appreciate this.
I work as a shop-assistant and do sell clothes for women (skirts, trousers, blouses ). I really like my job. It is great when you can help someone to look more beautiful and I like to be around people.
I live in Russia. The city is called Tomsk. If you look at the map, you will find it close to the center, in the beginning of Sibiria. but somewhere I am going to get a student visa and I am going to come to your country.
I thought a lot about it and had come to such decision.
I love Russia but I do really want to move to a more stable country. The life is very complicated here. I know it will not be easy in a foreign country. But I am sure I can do much more in your country. I am a hard-working person and I am not afraid of difficulties, so with the opportunities that your country gives I can do more than I do here.
I already have some experience living and working in a foreign country. Some years ago I worked in Australia and I should say I liked it very much. So I know what is waiting for me and I don’t want to waste time. And I decided to try and find a person I could rely on, the one who will be with me in joy and sorrows. We all work a lot now and it takes so much time that we miss the most important in this life – love relations and family.
Living in Australia I had relations with a man. But I had to go back to my country as my visa was over. He didn’t want to wait for me any longer. It was too difficult for him. It was a very hard period for me but I could handle it. And now I am ready to fall in love and to have new relations. I tried to have correspondence with foreigners. But as soon as they get to know I was from Russia they disappeared. They thought I was a scammer. I hope that you are not scared that I am from Russia.
I want you to understand, I am not a scammer. I don’t need money from you. I heard much about it and I really feel sorry for women who are true and want to find their happiness.
All this is so wrong as there are so many people who really want to find their second halves. And internet is a very good opportunity for this.
I hope that you like my pictures. I am not a model, of course.
I am just an average Russian girl who is truly seeking her love...
I hope that you are interested in me and I will hear back from you. And perhaps, in the future we will have an opportunity to meet. I go to the internet cafe 3 times a week. That is why I am going to write to you in a day.
Well, I hope that now you understand mebetter and I will be waiting impatiently for your reply.
Valentina.

Letter 2

Hi Cory,
such a pity there is no message from you.
You have received my last letter?
In this letter, I wrote more about me to you and said that my nick name is Gulya.
May be my letter has got in yours spam folder? Look there!
I only want to tell you that I think of you and wait for your reply. Please, write me as soon as possible.
I am waiting for your reply impatiently.
I understand that it's difficult to believe woman via internet.
Therefore I want to prove I am real. I made a pic for you yesterday. This is a pic of me with Tomsk's newspaper.
There is a date. That will prove to you I am real...
I have some time and I decided to tell you more about myself.
I really like you and I would like to know you well. And I want you to understand me better too, to know how I live, what I do in my spare time.
Well, I like cooking very much. This is one of the things that make me relax and forget about all the bad things that happen during the day. Salads, different soups, pasta, souses, cakes and pies– it is just a short list of what I cook. I like very much to try new things. It is always nice to go to a good restaurant or to a nice pizza place, cafe.
I do it seldom, usually it happens when we celebrate someone’s birthday.
I like trying new cuisine and trying to guess what are the ingredients.
What’s favorite dish?
I like bowling and billiard. do you like bowling? or billiard?
What’s is your favorite colour? Mine is red and black.
I have no pets. I like animals a lot. Also I like watching programmes on TV about animals. I do love cats and dogs and horse.
Watching movies is one of my adorable things to do, especially at the weekend. I like comedies and melodramas.
What’s favorite types movie do you like?
It is always so nice to rent some movie, to cook something tasty or something sweet, to invite someone of my friends and enjoy the time together. It is especially nice doing it in the cold winter evening with a warm blanket and a cup of hot tea or coffee.
I do not smoke, but sometimes I can drink a little wine (red) or beer.
I always try to find time to read something. The last book I’ve read was “Loneliness in the internet” by Vishnevskiy.
I liked it very much though it is sad but it shows the true life of people. I also like to read classical things by Tolstoy, Bernard Show, Dostoevskiy and others.
I regularly go into aerobics. And I also I go twice a week to the swimming-pool. It helps me to stay in a good shape and to be healthy.
I try to lead a healthy life style, don’t have any bad habbits.
Music helps me to be a in good spirit. I like ballads very much though sometimes I can listen to a fast music. I like Lara Fabian very much and Darren Hayes.
I like to have long walks in parks.
I like to drive on a bicycle.
I have no it, but often take for rent bicycle.
What about you? What are your prefers? Tell me, please, more about you and your interests.
I have important question for you. Do you know any colleges and universities close to your place? I could check them in advance and enter then when I go to your country.
I would like studies near to you and meet you often.
I wish to arrive to your country. I wish to receive the visa next month.
I have already started to collect documents necessary for a trip.
I wish to study and live near with you, that we could meet.
I wish to study as the medical worker or the bookkeeper.
I like both trades. But I can choose and any other branch of formation.
Well, I have to close here. But will be waiting very much for your reply.
Valentina.

Letter 3

Hello Cory,
I am glad, to receive your answer.
Unfortunately, I can’t talk to you on-line, as I write letters to you from the internet cafe and the time is limited there.
I wish I could chat with you but right now it is just impossible as I don’t have a personal PC.
But I shall continue to send you email letters and pics.
I am going to send you my address here. As I already told you I rent my apartment and I don’t have a phone there. But here is my address, in case you decide to send me a card or a hand-written letter: -

to Valentina,
apt.-7, Torgovaya street 15,
Tomsk, 634063, Russia

Yes, I am going to come to your country. Somewhere in a month. I am going to enter the University or college. I am doing all the paperwork for this now. That's why I asked you about the colleges or Universities close to your place. So I could study and meet with you there.
I shall live in campus.
Do you want it? You want that I lived near to you in your district?
Do not forget to send me your photos.
As soon as I finish this letter I will go and have a short walk.
You know walking is one of the things I adore. It is so nice to have a long walk and then find some small cafe and get a cup of coffee there. I don’t have a car and I don’t really want to have it right now. And it is too expensive for me. I have no money to buy a car. I have never tried to drive a car and I have no license.
Walking is much more pleasant. Unfortunately, most of the times I have to walk alone. All my friends are married and they try to spend more time with their families. I also like to go to the movie a lot. But do it rather seldom. Usually I go there with my friends, but they don’t do this often. They try to spend more time with their husbands and children. As I don’t have children and a husband, I try not to bother them often. Sometimes I feel rather lonely but I try not to think of this often.
Any way, my city is too beautiful not to walk. My city is very beautiful. There are so many places of culture there, lots of monuments. It is very green. It is especially beautiful in spring and in summer time when everything is awaken after the winter.
There are also many parks and we have one boulevard with fountains.
And it is gorgeous.
Also we have some really beautiful churches. I am Christian but I am not really religious. I have my own faith inside.
And I go to the church but do it seldom. I am not fanatic about this.
I like nature very much and it is always a please to go somewhere to the country-side and to spend a day there. I like picnics, camping a lot. It is great to spend a day on the fresh air, especially when you are with friends or family. I try to enjoy it every time we do it but sometimes I feel very sad as I miss not having my second half near.
Well, I am not going to be sad, as I am sure everything will be fine. Please, tell me about your city? What is it?
What’s interesting there?
Valentina.

Letter 4

Hello Cory,
pity... is no letter from you today...
I am so glad I have you in my life and I have an opportunity to come to the Internet cafe and talk to you.
Only such a pity there is no letter from you.
I am not really in a good spirit today.
I had a very bad conflict at work. Some people here in Russia think that if they have lots of money they can do and say everything they want. I had a conflict with one very rich woman at work. She didn’t like the quality of the clothes. And was so rude with me. But I am just a shop-assistant. I am not the owner and I just sell things.
Sometimes I feel that I am very tired from my life in Russia.
I have nothing. I rent a very small apartment and can’t afford anything better. I get a very small salary and prices increase here every year. But salaries are still the same. I was shocked when I get to the store to buy some food yesterday. They increased prices again for milk products. Milk costs about one US dollar which is too much. For-example, my salary is 120 US dollars a month. And a half of it I pay for the apartment.
And what is left I spend for food.
Therefore I wish to leave to live in other country.
Therefore I save money for a trip.
I am just tired from a hard life here. And I want to move to a foreign country. I want to get another education, to find a good job there. That is why I am trying to get a student visa.
I shall study and work. I shall work to pay training and my life there.
I haven't decided yet what University I am going to come to.
I am still searching information. I would like it to be close to you. I am doing the paperwork now. And as they told me my visa would be ready in a month. But I don't know the exact dates. It is just the way things are done here. As soon as I know everything, I will let you know.
I want to have a more stable life for me and my future family.
And what is more important I want have a strong man near me and to have a comfortable life for us. So I am trying to save money any way I can for my trip and studies.
Please, forgive me for writing this to you. But I need to talk to you. It is sometimes so hard to be just by myself. And sometimes I need a strong shoulder and a friend to cry and to get an advice.
I know that you are a very understanding person. So, please, try to understand me. You are my friend and I trust you.
Now I shall go to a bathroom. I like to lay in bathing with foam.
It would be great to take a bath together. It is very relaxing. And I think it is rather romantic.
You want it with me?
PLease,let me know what you think of this.
Write me your thoughts and your dreams.
Write a replay to me. Your letter will make me glad.
I will wait with hope.
Valentina.

Letter 5

Hi dear Cory,
In the first lines of this message I want to apologise for complaining in my previous letter.
I don’t really want to complain and I don’t want to talk about money any more. This was the first and the last time I did it.
I was just in a very bad spiring while writing my last letter to you.
Sometimes we have bad periods in life and we need a strong shoulder of a friend. I hope that you let me think you are my friend. And I trust you that is why I decided to share my thoughts with you.
If you ever need to talk and if you ever need a friend, you can always talk to me...
I have been thinking a lot about our meeting and I want to meet with you a lot.
I am doing all the paperwork now to get a student visa. And I do hope to get it. So if I get it I will be in your country.
and I think it is really a very good opportunity for us to meet.
Please, tell me do you really want to see me? Do you want me to visit you? Do you think that we could like each other and be together in the future? Please, be honest with me and tell me the truth.
I know that you are being tired with this question. But you should understand my concerns. This is a very major decision to move to the other country.
Perhaps, you wonder why I have such a big desire to move from here. The reason is very simple. I have nobody and nothing to stay here. I will miss my friends, but they already have their families and they live with their own lives. I have parents but you know we are not in good relations with them. And I think they will not miss me.
I have no good job, have no stability. I have no family. It is very hard to live in Russia and I don’t think it will ever be better. And I am really tired from this life. That’s why I have such a strong desire to get a student visa, to come there, to get a new education, to settle down and already to have a family.
I hope that you understand me and that you support me in my decision.
Please, don’t be offended if I don’t always answer your questions.
I do it because my time in the internet cafe is limited. I don’t always answer your questions because I am in a rush when I answer your letters. I come here 3 times a week and have only 15 minutes to write to you.
I wait your answer on my questions...
Valentina.

Letter 6

Dear Cory,
Why you have not answered?
I do not know what to say.
I am shamed and offended. You are so cruel to me.
You were just the only hope for me. I trusted you and believed in you.
Ok, one more time I understand now that I could rely only on myself always.
So don’t worry. I will find money somewhere any way.
I will come to your country by all means. I have decided it already and I am not going to give up.
Whether I do not know I can find money. But I shall try.
Of course, it is very unpleasant to see that you do not trust me.
But...
I can understand you. You have never seen me in real life.
And of course, it is very hard to believe the person you have never met in real life.
But any way, it was very offensive to hear that from you.
But sometimes it is necessary to trust people!
Well, life is going on and now I have to manage something not to miss the chance to get to your country.
I want you to know that I still like you very much. And I would like to continue our relations. I will not ask you for anything any more.
If you still want to continue our correspondence and meet me one day, let me know, please.
I am waiting for your reply.
Valentina.

Letter 7

Hi Cory!
I want to start that I got used a lot to you during our correspondence. I want to meet you very much. I asked you for help but you didn't believe me and refused me. It is so offensive. But I understand that it is very difficult to tust the person you have never seen. I just want to tell you that sometimes it is necessary to trust people. There are many honest people in the world. And it was very offensive when you refused to help me. But I have good news now. I have found money for my trip. I am going to come approximately in 1 or 2 weeks. I have sold my fur coat. I have already paid for visa and now all I need is to wait when I get it. I have money for the ticket. They promised me it would be in approximately in 2 or 3 weeks. I do not know exact dates but I will let you know as soon as I know.
I will get visa for 3 months. And during this time I should enter any university in your country. I will choose the one that is close to you. Are you happy to hear this? We will be able to meet but not only communicate through the letters.
Perhaps, our relations will grow into more close.
Please, write me your thoughts. I want to know that you still want me to come to your place.
I will be waiting for your reply.
Valentina.

Letter 9

Hi dear Cory!!!
I have paid for visa. It is going to be ready approximately in 1 or 2 weeks. Yes, I have money for the ticket. I shall not your financial help to get to your country. I don't have an exact information now. I only know that I am going to have a visa approximately in 1 or 2 weeks. I will let you know all the details about my coming in approximately in 1 or 2 weeks.
Are yo happy to hear that? Would you like that to happen?
I’ve got up today with the thoughts about you and it is such a happiness to know that I have a close person in my life and I hope you feel the same about me.
Tomorrow my friend is going to celebrate her birthday (Vika).
I don’t know yet where we will go.
Perhaps, to some cafe. She is going to invite all her friends and relatives. So the celebration is going to be rather big.
My friends are really very good people. Perhaps, their life is not really good and comfortable as you know the situation in Russia, I already told you about this several times. Salaries are too small here. And many people have to save every rouble to buy a washing machine or a fridge. And my friends too have such difficulties.
But I am proud of them. They overcome all the difficulties together and they still love each other.
This is what I want to. I want to be together in joy and sorrows, to love each other even if the life is not really comfortable, help each other, understand each other.
I think that every person needs such a place where he feels comfortable and safe. Especially, it is important for a woman.
We now have to be strong. But I want to feel myself a little girl with the strong man near. I want to be weak sometimes and let someone take care of me.
Enjoy your day and think of me.
Valentina.

Letter 10

Hello my dear one Cory!!!
I had a bad day yesterday. I went to a book store.
I went there bought the book. It is a love story.
And every time I read it, I think of us.
We had the big rain outside today and it took me about two hours to get back home.
I decided not to use the public transport and just walked back home.
I still feel a little sad and lonely. And I wish you to be here right now. You would share wine with me and we would talk till morning… There is so much I want to tell you always and every day I start writing I lose all my thoughts. As my only thought is always about you.
You are such a dear and close person to me. And I feel a little sad as you are far from me. But soon, very soon, everything will be over at last and I will see you.
It is worse to wait and I am patient enough as I know the miracle is waiting for me – meeting with you.
Perhaps this letter is a little bit sad. But I just wanted to talk to you and to share my thoughts with you. Forgive me for being sad with you.
Valentina.

Letter 11

My dear Cory!
How are you, my sweetheart?
I am OK, just a little bit tired. I am already in Moscow and the city is so noisy. I don’t really feel comfortable here.
But well, I came here on purpose. So it is Ok.
I have very good news for you. I’ve got my visa at last.
So this is done now. I have my passport for going abroad with the visa inside.
The only thing left is a ticket. I already know the airport I should go to. And I even went to the cash department of the airport to check about the ticket. They offered me the ticket on September, 5th.
Mos?ow (svo) – ........
And the price is rather reasonable. It will cost $976.
Unfortunately, there is a problem. I have only $600 and I still need $376. I really don’t know what to do. I have to pay for it soon not to be sold to someone else. So I have to ask you if you can help me with this. Will you be able to send me $376?
I told you that I sold my fur coat to pay for visa and ticket.
But the money was not enough. I sold my fur tree for $900.
I have spent $240 for all the papers with the visa. And $60 I spent for my trip to Moscow. That is why I ask you to help me and send me $376.
As soon as I buy the ticket I will immediately leave for you.
And in some days I will be in your arms already. Think on this.
Dear, I really have no one to rely on and I have only you who could help me in this situation. You know I will give you the money back as soon as I will be able to work in your country.
So this is no going to be a problem. I will give it back to you by all means. This is the only thing left now before we could be together.
I really hope that you will help me and we will be together at last. I am sure you want it the same way I do.
So, please, write me your thoughts on this and when you will be able to send the money. I can’t stay here for long in Moscow and also the ticket could be sold to another person if I don’t pay for it shortly.
You can send money to my name (Valentina Ivanyuk) by any office Western Union or MoneyGram and I will get it without any problems in Moscow.
My sweetheart, I need you and I hope you too need me.
I love you very much.
And I miss you badly.
Valentina.

Letter 12

My dear Cory!!!
Why you have not answered?
Yes, I understand that asked you for help though told you that had all the money for the trip. But please, understand my problem.
I have has sold a fur coat. But this money is not enough for the ticket. I don’t know where to take the money. I hope only for you.
Nobody can help me here. I don’t know anybody here in Moscow.
I didn’t know I had to buy a two way ticket. $976 is a cost for the ticket there and the return ticket. Your government asks to have a return ticket for the case my visa is inspired or I am not able to enter the University. They do it because they are afraid of the immigrants. When I checked the cost of the ticket they told me the cost only of the one ticket. Do you understand now why I don’t have enough money for the ticket?
I am still in Moscow. And I have spent lots of money already to stay here. Everything is very expensive here and my money is limited. Please, understand my worries and help me.
I have already paid part of the money for ticket not to be sold to another person. I have left 300 dollars that is why I ask you to send me money. I ask you to send me only $376. 976 dollars is a very reasonable price. And if I don’t pay the whole sum of the money for the ticket then I will loose all the money that I paid for my ticket to be reserved.
The other problem is that my visa is given to me only for 2 months except of 3 months. I don’t know why they did it. But that was the decision of your Embassy. And they even didn’t explain me the reason. And I can’t wait. That is why I should come as soon as possible and enter the University. If I have my visa for longer time then I could stay here for more time and try to save money.
But I have no time.
I ask you to help me but don’t ask you for a present! I will come, enter the University and give you the money back. I will work and will be able to give you it back. I don’t want you to think that I want to use you just to move to your country.
I hope that you will understand me and will send me the money.
There is only thing left before we meet. There is only little step left. So please, think and send me the money. It is only 376 dollars. I don’t think it is much for the opportunity to be happy.
I think we will be able to be happy with you. But you should do this so we could meet with you. ..
I have sent you a list of paper with my your and my names.
But why don’t you want to believe me? I have sent you also the copy of my passport. Why don’t you still believe me?
I am going to try and prove again that I am real.
I am going to attach you the copy of my visa. And I want you to understand that I have only serious intentions and I am really going to come to you. I don’t play any games. I am going to get your money in Moscow with my passport ( I have sent it already in my previous letters ) and with my visaIf I am not real I would not be able to get the money!
And I really want to come to you.
Please, believe me and send me the money. .
I tried to prove you that I am real several times already.
I just wanted to let you know that you are a very close person to me.
You know I often think of us and think how it is to be close, hold your hand, kiss your face… Sometimes I miss you so much that even feel a body ache. But hope that very soon the waiting will be over and I will be with you at last.
In the evenings I sit down and try to imagine our life. There are so many things that I want to do together. I want to take care of you and to have a true family.
It is such a happiness to love and to be loved. And you can’t imagine how happy I am to know that you love me and I love you.
When I feel sad, I immediately think of how great it will be to spend time with you. To go shopping together and then to cook in the evening, to watch movies, to go dancing together, to read together, to go out all together.
Please, write me your thoughts on this, how you imagine us together.
Take care.
I need you and I truly hope that you feel the same.
I made a copy of visa by scanner.
But I can't send my pictures now as I am in Moscow now.
I have no here a camera.
I don't think it is a problem as soon I will come to you and you will be able to see me in real life but not at the pictures.
Valentina.
