How are you? It is me again. I am glad to have the letter from you.
If you have written to me I understand, that my photo was pleasant to you. It so?
I hope you are not bored with me. As for me I find our correspondence rather interesting.
I think you want to know more about me so I will go on describing myself.
You know I live in Russia in the town Penza. I have been living in Russia for all my life and have never been in other countries.
The town where I live is rather small but it is very beautiful.
We have very wonderful nature here. There are a lot of beautiful lakes and rivers here.
Here there passes the main river of our city, its name same as well as the name of city, that is Penza.
I studied and graduated the university with the diploma of social worker.
Now I work in this city in the boarding school for orphans and bring up children of orphans.
I have written about it. This job is not paid very well but I do not care.
I like my job because I love children very much. I want to give everything for their future happiness.
But it is enough about my job. I have a cat. I will write you more about my interests.
I am rather active person and I like outdoor activities.
I like camping very much and I try to spend my free time with my friends on the nature. I also like sports.
I like sports too, especially sport games. During the wintertime I like skiing and skating.
We have a lot of snow here and I can ski very often.
If I do not have opportunity for active spending time I like to read literature. I like listening to music very much.
Most of all I like slow compositions and ballads. They help me to relax. But I can listen to different music.
Sometimes I just like to listen silence. As for my dislikes I even do not know what they are.
I do no like lie and dishonesty. I do not like to play with the feelings of other people and do not like when somebody plays with my feelings.
I have written that I am romantic person. I believe in destiny and in the love at first site.
Maybe it is unusual, but it is me, such as I am. I suppose you can ask why I am searching for someone in the Internet. v I exactly do not know why. My past relationships were not good. I met one man here. He was very nice and kind.
I failed in love with him. Everything was good but then he became to drink a lot and I was on the second place for him.
I suffered some time from his attitude but one day he hit me and I was not able to stay with him more. So I left him.
He make me feel pain and I was in depression for some time but now I am beginning my new life and I have decided to try to find the right person who will be able to love me and care about me in the global net.
I do not know if I will be able to do it. Only time can show it.
Maybe it is a little strange that I write you such things and do not know you rather well yet.
But I want to be honest and open with you. Hope you will appreciate it and will be honest with me too.
So you know some more about my life and me. I do not know what exactly you think about me, but you always can tell me about it.
I also would like to know more about you, your life, your likes and dislikes.
You can always write me about it if you want. All right I need to go now.
I am writing you from the Internet cafe.
I do not have computer with phone at home because I do not have opportunity for it.
It is not very far from the place where I work. But it takes some time to get home from here.
I have to take the bus to get home. I do not have car, you know.
I will go now, ok. I will think about you and I will be waiting for your letters with big impatience.
Sincerely your Ekaterina.

Letter 4

Hello my dear Michael!!!
At last I get to the Internet cafe and can write you. How are you these days?
Hope everything is fine. As for me I am rather good. It is really excited that I met you.
I do not know you very well but I really find our connection very interesting and delightful.
I do not know what exactly made me contact your ad. Perhaps it was some kind of intuition.
I am really glad that I wrote you and I hope this intuition will not lie to me.
I think you want to know more things about my life here. You know that I have been living here for all my life.
I spend all my childhood in Penza city. I do not like to remember that time.
I explain you why. I am the orphan and I do not have family. I even do not know my mother and father.
I was brought up in the boarding school for children orphans. You know that it is not happy to live without parents.
I wanted to find my parents when I brought up but then I forgot about this idea.
That's why I decided to work in the boarding school and give all my love and care to children who do not have love from parents.
Now I live with two my girlfriends. We rent the room together. Their names are Tatyana and Nadezhda.
We know each other from the childhood. We were together in the boarding school and they like my sisters now.
They work on the textile plant. We spend a lot of time together.
I think any person can have only few real friends.
I have such friends and I know that I always can hope on their help and support.
I also have some friends from my work but we do not spend a lot of time together.
I think it is because everybody has her or his own life. But sometimes we gather together and go for picnics or cinema. Most of all I like to watch comedies and romantic films.
What else I can tell you about me?
I believe in God. I am Christian but I think that the main faith is in the heart and not just in going to the church.
There are a lot of people who go to the church just for view or fashion.
I am against such faith. You know that I like romantic things. I like flowers.
I like all flowers but most of all I like roses. It is the flowers of love. My favorite color is blue.
I had one dream in childhood. I wanted to sea Blue Ocean. I have never seen ocean.
Hope I will be able to see it one day. Now I have more serious dreams.
You know that I want to have my own family, my own micro world.
I live with my girlfriends now but I want to have close person who will understand me in everything.
I want to share all moments of the life with him. I want to have beloved man who will love me and will care about me.
I dream about having a family and to have close friends, to gather together and to spend vacations, to have picnics, to go out together.
It is dreams again. I hope that they will come true one day. I think I should let you go now.
I have written you a lot of information about me in my letters.
I spend a lot of time writing letters because I type very slowly. Hope my typing skills will be better in some time.
If you want to know anything you can always ask me about it, ok.
Maybe it is strange but I thought about you. You know that I am very interested in you and our connection.
Hope everything will be fine with it.
Well, I need to close here.
I need to go but I will think about you. I already think about you a lot.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Your friend Ekaterina.
Letter 5

Hello dearest Michael!!!
I am very happy to read your words. You know that I wait for your letters with so big impatience.
My life here is so usual. I wake up and go to work.
I like my work and children are the only good I have here and I give them all my energy.
I work since 8:00 till 17:00 five days per week but sometimes I work more hours.
Then I go to sport hall to work out and home and just have a rest till next morning.
And so is every day. Only on weekends I have some free time to relax.
Sometimes I feel that I am alone and I want to have real close for me person.
I do not know what I would do without Tatyana and Nadezhda. It is my girlfriends I have written you about them.
Also my cat helps me to forget about loneliness. I do not remember if I wrote to you that we have a cat.
Her name is Murka. She is very kind and clever. But now I have met you and you like a new breathe in my life.
I begin to miss you when I cannot read you letters.
I usually go to the cafe during my lunch break or after work By the way I have told my girlfriends about our correspondence.
They are a little skeptical about all of this.
They told me that there are so many lies in the Internet and you cannot believe anybody but I hope we will change their mind, will we? Oh, I have remembered that I need to cook supper. My girlfriends will come home rather late today and I need to feed them.
I do not remember if I have written to you that I like cooking.
My friends like my cooking. I like to cook something delicious and then invite my friends to taste.
I think you would like my cooking too. Maybe you will be able to taste it one day.
Everything can happen in this world. Am I right? I am really glad that we have met each other.
And I am not afraid of anything. Time will show to us everything we want to know I think. Am I right?
I have the feelings that we will have a lot of wonderful moments in the future.
Sorry dear, I need to go now. I need to get to home as quickly as possible to cook the supper.
I will try to write you more next time, ok.
As always I will wait for your letters with very big impatience and will think about you.
Your letters are becoming very important for me. Have a good day.
Your friend Ekaterina.
Letter 6

Hello my dear Michael!!!
I begin to think about you almost all the time and every time I go to the Internet cafe is like a date with you.
You know that you have become important part of my life and I wait for every moment when I can write to you.
Everything is rather good here. My girlfriends ask to say great hello to you.
As for me I am a little tired on my work today. One boy in my group caught cold and had high temperature.
I went to the medicine cabinet for the drugs from flu but there were nothing.
It is like a rule in our country when government does not give enough money for the social sphere, health and medicine of its organizations.
I had to go to drugstore to buy some medicine for his recovering.
The medicine is very expensive here but I do not care and I bought all medicine he needs for the recovering.
I do not have good feelings and thoughts about my country in such moments.
Food, medicine, everything costs rather expensive but sometimes people do not get their salaries for several months and government do not pay attention on it.
I hope you will not think that I am complaining to you. I just want to share with you everything.
After all this day I was so tired. You know that I give to work all my energy and it takes a lot of time.
But I want to do it and I like my job you know.
But I am better now because I can talk to you and share with you with the part of me. I would like you to be near me so you would be able to help me to relax much more.
But it is just a dream. But perhaps it will be happened one day. But it is enough about me. How are you?
Do you have anything interesting to write? You can always write me anything you want.
You know that I want to know everything about you.
But I am sure that you will write me anything you think I should know.
Michael, I am really happy that I met you. I have only warm thoughts about you.
I hope you do not mind me thinking about you.
I want to thank the God that he gave me the opportunity to find you in this big world.
I hope the God will help us on our way. I need to close here and go home.
I will miss you and will wait for your wonderful words. You know that you mean a lot to me.
Take care dear Michael!
Remember I think about you.
Yours Ekaterina.
Letter 7

Hello my dearest Michael
Thank you for your letter! I am very glad to have it!
How are you? I hope you are fine. I am OK.
You know, I am glad that we correspond. I think we should know each other better.
And I am glad to call you my friend if you don't mind. Tell me more about yourself.
I want to know everything about you. What you dislike to do?
What you like in woman? What you dislike in her?
I want to find a man, who will be honour with me, who will not make me a bad and a sick, who will be valid to respect and to love me, who will answer me by mutual feelings, and who is not going to use me, or even to try to use.
I shall not forgive it. I'm very brave, both resolute. And sometimes womans are much more dangerous then men.
But I think that you are not such man, also that us was reduced by good circumstances :)
I'm right? But if I will find a man, who will be my second half in my life, I will make all that he can to become happy, I will give him all that mans need from woman, we will creat a strong family!
I will the best friend for him, and I will help to do all that he will need to do.
Mens and womans are not simple people who loves each others, they are partners, and best friends in life.
If I will find a man who will live even in the cold North, I will live with him there, even if he will very poor.
I'm looking for a man, who can to see a second-half in me, who will be sure that I'm his woman, who will be sure, that we can to become happy..
What is important for you in your love? What is important for your in your life?
As for me I don't like to idle. If somebody is working, is doing something, I can't just sit and look at him, I am sure to help him if I am not busy of course.
I don't like to cheat and to be cheated.
I think that every lie is sure to come to light. I don't like even white lie. I think that it should be no lie in my life. I can't live with it.
I think lie makes us be nervous and it prevents a happy life.
In a man I like such qualities as smartness, honesty, kindness, sense of humor and respect to a woman.
I dislike to be cheated and I have already told you that.
The most important thing for me is to love and to be loved. When I am in love, I feel the happiest person in the world.
I know English and I can speak English.
You seem to have serious intentions in searching for your love! Yes, you seem to be a serious man.
You know, appearance doesn't matter much for me.
Even if you were ****, but you are not!, if you had a kind heart, I think I could fall in love with you.
You know,I think that there are not many really kind person unfortunately.
As I am looking for my life partner I am interested in his soul first of all, I am interested in inner beauty as I think that only inner beauty is eternal.
I need a kind man with strong desire to create a family. So, what have you done these days?
I was at the cinema yesterday. I watched the film "The One". A nice film, I liked it.
Actually I like to watch comedies, romantic comedies, historical filmswith elements of love.
You know, , my favorite film is "The Lord of rings".
A very like movie and with love, just the same that I like.
My favorite actors are B.Willis, J.Roberts, D.Pevtsova.
What is the weather like in your country? What weather you like? Do you like rain?
What you do when it is raining? As for me I am sitting at home reading or listen to music or just watching at the windows.
You know I like rain in summer. It makes the nature more lovely and colorful.
Now I am finishing my letter and waiting for your .
Take care of you Ekaterina
Letter 8

Hello my dear Michael
I have received your letter, and it delivers me a lot of pleasure.
When I have got your letter I think that we have a lot of common. I take serious our relation.
And just for you to be sure, I have a firm conviction that the most important thing between the man and woman is their complete trust. I hate when the people deceive each other.
You know, I am the person who is able to make a compromise decision in critical situation.
You probably think, that I am the most serious person, but it is not so, I do not want to be mistaken in a search of the future husband and man of sympathy. At this moment my feelings to YOU are more than friendly.
Reading your letter I begin to understand that you are the man of honour.
The words you wrote make warm my soul and heart. So it is wonderful that there is in this world a man whom I am not indifferent.
It is very pleasant to me to understand that we have mutual understanding so you can see that it is one of the most important thing in our relation.
If we want to create strong union, we should entrust and understand each other in everything, I feel perfect, concerning myself it can not worry with me, in the order.
Well I do not speak about problems, which raise on our way.
Write to me, as it is possible more frequently, I love to read your letters, they establish in me all pleasures in life.
It makes me to believe that in me somewhere far there loves, the man, mood at once lifts. It would be desirable for me to live and to believe that we can be able to meet.
I will wait for your answer today or tomorrow. I want to send you the kiss from the very deep from my heart.
You are in my heart each minute. There is such feeling in me that I have received of the large energy within all day.
You can write about everything, about work, for example.
I would like to know concerning you everything, that in you the majority of a favorite dish, than you loves to be engaged in free from work time.
Perfect I want to inform, that I have chosen in you soul superior others in love in, in mercy, in powerful desire to love and to bring happiness.
And please be honour with me. You can see, that the deceit breaks many families.
Today I will visit the church, and will ask God about us.
Be healthy and in the good arrangement of spirit, and just for you to know that you are always in my heart.
Are fidelity and tenderness necessary for you? I have chosen destiny and fidelity as the closest things to my character.
Let's convince about it. Unsuccessfully speak, that the love is blind.
It doesn't matter for true love how much lacks the other person has If you are sure that you find the right person who was made special for you.
I imagine us sitting together in evening in a room.
We discuss the things which we love; we can talk about the people things kind day.
Kisses and huges.
I am waiting for your reply
Sincerely your Ekaterina
Letter 9

My darling Michael!!!
You know that I miss you always when I cannot read your letters.
My life was so usual before. You know I looked for the one man who would make me feel happy every second of my life.
Now I have found such man. Now I have very close person who always can understand me and make me feel happy.
He is you. I even do not know what I will do without you.
I watched one film yesterday. I do not know exactly how it is called in English.
Perhaps "Sleepless in Seattle". It is about one man who said the story about his life on the radio.
One woman had heard this story and she is failed in love with this man even she did not see him and did not know him well.
She went to meet him and when she met him she understood that he was the one whom she looked for.
I believe that you my second half and the destiny has helped us to meet.
I think it is our chance to be happy until the end of times and we cannot miss it.
I understand that we do not know each other for a long time and we have not met yet, but I have the feeling that I know you all my life and I have already written about it.
I think you have this feeling too. I know what I feel inside and what my heart tells me.
You know that it is the first time when I met somebody through the Internet.
I would never believe that I can have such feelings to the man I have never met in the real life.
But now I know that everything can happen. I have experienced it. I met you and everything changed in my life.
I am happy now and I do not need anything else. You are the closest person for me now.
I trust you dear and I know that you will never make me feel pain.
I know that you trust me. I did not give you any reasons for not trusting me.
I hope you will always trust me and care about me. I have only serious intentions about you.
Just write me that you trust me and that you do not think that I am weird.
You know that I am very sensitive and sensual person. You mean everything to me now. You are my life now.
I think that you even can feel it on such big distance from me. I cannot imagine my life without you.
I know that my life will be empty without you and I do not want to lose you.
Please be sincere with me and write that you trust me and that you will never hurt me.
I will let you go now but I will wait for your letters. I will think about you and you will feel my thoughts.
You are in my heart.
Forever your Ekaterina
Letter 10

Hello my love Michael!!!
I live in the fog now. I love you most of all in this world and I am very happy that I can love again.
I am crazy about you and I know that you are too. I miss you and it is very difficult for me to be apart from you.
The idea that you are there and I am here makes me feel pain.
You are my life now and you know it. I want to look into your deep eyes full of emotions, to touch you, to kiss you.
I know that everything will work for us and we will be happy together. I often imagine our wonderful life together.
I can feel you even on such big distance we have between each other. But I want to delete this distance.
I want to be with you so much and I thought about the ways for us to be together.
I wanted to do something for us and our happiness and I went to the Consulate as I wrote to check what I need to come to you.
I had talk with the people there and I have known that I need to do some paperwork and get visa to come to you.
The visa I can get in easiest way is a tourist visa. I was told that I will be able to get it without any problems.
It will take some time and I need to pick up many documents from my side. But I will do everything what depends on me.
But I have one problem which upsets me very much.
It is not convenient for me to ask you for help but I will not be able to do it without your help.
You know, I need to pay for getting visa and doing all paperwork I need to come to you.
And you know that my salary is too small for it.
I have the great desire to come to you, to see you at last, but I will not be able to do it without your help.
I do not want to complain but I do not want to lose you. I love you very much and I will not be able to go through it if I lose you.
I do not know whom I can ask for help except you. You know that I am always honest and sincere with you.
I hope that you will understand me and will help me to do this step.
When I was in the Consulate I gave them some documents and they made a file for me.
Now I need to pay them and they will begin my visa process. They gave me quotations for paperwork I need to do.
So it will be 100$US for the visa and 30 $ for registration.
I also need to pay 120 $ for foreign passport, 75 $ for medical exam and 75 for interview and for some other expenses I can have.
In general I will need about 400$US to cover all expenses.
You know that I do not have such money and I can hope only on your help.
Also I have known that there is Western Union office in our city and you can send the money using this bank system to my name.
I was told that it is the quickest and safest way of sending money.
My full name is EKATERINA VOLKOVA.
You also need to know address and name bank near to which I live.
This address: Russian Federation, postal cod 440600, City Penza, Vneshtorgbank, Moskowskaya street, house 9.
After you send the money you will need to send me your full name, exact home address, amount of money and Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN).
I was told about it in the bank. I will not be able to get the money without it.
Honey, I will need to pay them during the week, so, please, try to send it as soon as possible.
I really hope that you will understand my situation.
I want to see you very much but I will not be able to do it without your help just because I don't have such money.
I will understand if you do not want to help me but it will make me feel terrible pain that I will not be able to be with you.
Sorry, dear, if it upsets you. I just think that we need to trust each other, to be honest and to share everything.
I hope you are agree with me. I imagine that we can meet soon and I have tears of happiness on my eyes.
I do not want that there were problems which can prevent us.
But I can hope only on your help, dear. It will be the happiest moment of my life when I meet you, hold you.
I love you so much. You are the best what I have in my life. I want to be with you more than anything.
I miss you, dear and wait for your reply with big impatience.
Your Ekaterina.
Letter 11

Hi my dear Michael
I am very glad to receive your letter.
I so strongly waited for it, and now I read your letter, and on my person a smile.
Yes I understand you that about which money I ask it complete your salary.
But I think, that it is not necessary to send all sum at once, I think that it will be better for you if you will send money by some sums.
Concerning that as I can arrive in you, I think that will be faster if I shall fly by the plane.
Why you speak, that the sum of flight makes 3000 $ it there should be cheaper.
For this purpose that I could learn the sum of trip I should to know the nearest airport to you.
After I shall learn about it I can inform it.
Yesterday I already began to collect some documents for my visa, and it occurs very successfully.
I think, that it will be better, if I have given back at once documents for registration, for now there will pass registration we with you we can to save of money and to pay it. You agree with me??
But you asked me concerning the steam-ship, yes I think that it too probably.
But unfortunately it will occupy a lot of time, and some more lot of the spent money.
I think that it will be better, if I shall fly to you by the plane.
mire kisses Ekaterina
