Letter 1

Hello Jay.

I hope you remember you answered my email. I am sorry I did not write back soon. I just was out of town having official journey for training and thought much about my reply. I heard there are many bad people all over the internet who wants to use someone or just looking for a whore. I am not that type of girls who makes naked or sexy pictures. I am serious and I really have not any time for games etc. I am not interested if you are married also or just looking for sex.

My real name is Svetlana but friends call me Sveta often. I am 31, single, never married, no any kids, living is small Russian town called Mikun.
I have not any boyfriend cause I will leave Russia and there is no any sense to start any relationship.
My height is 5'7" (170 cm) weight is about 138.9 lbs (63 kg). I have grey-blue eyes and blonde colored hair. I don't smoke and drink red wine or champagne for a holiday occasionally. I keep active life, like sport and outdoors. I have some hobbies such as reading and listening to music. I like cookery also. I love animals.
I am calm and loyal, enough emotional and sensible. I am a Christian but not a fanatic believer. I attend church seldom. I want to meet good man with kind soul and great sense of humor. I am family oriented and my goal is to make family happy. I need support and understanding in my life. Decent, honest and caring are the things I am looking for. I am ready to become the fond and tender wife good friend and partner.
I am serious about my intentions but I'm looking for real friendship first because I am going to work abroad.
I don't know anyone there and I hope we could be friends. I hate any type of lies.

I was planning to move to the states but politic relations between Russia and United States are not so good at the moment. I am going to visit Canada in March. I paid agency in my town for searching someone through internet and thank you for your reply. I am not talking with someone else. I am hardworking well educated medic and I have not much time for typing emails. There was several replies from Africa and India and from you.
I will have a flight to Toronto airport. I will stay there several days for choosing the places for my living. Anyway I will need to go in many places and cities for having medical practice that's why it will be great to have a true friend who live there long time ago and know much about the country. Is that you Jay?
I am going to live and work about a year then I hope I could stay forever if I will have a desire of course.

I hope you understand my English. I use dictionary for writing and still have not any talking practice. Nobody speaks English here. I guess you are not a robot or computer program so please tell me more about yourself and answer all my questions please. Do you know any Russian people or are you ever talked with Russian woman or man? What do you think? Just curious. What are you doing every day? Job? Occasions?
Again sorry for delay but your reply was in my spam folder so please add me in your white list I will do the same.
Please send me your current recent pictures and again tell me your exact location and exact age. I need to be sure we are on a right way. I really don't want to waste time and I am not sure I will write back if you will not answer my questions including your real pictures.

Svetlana.

Hi Jay, I am very glad you responded but I want you to know that's all have not any sense without my coming because I am not interested in pen pal and I don't think you could come to me for a visit.

I am sending you my recent picture taken at the beginning of new year. Hope you like it.

I am surprised you wrote. I thought you didn't. I am a novice at online communication, just opened up the possibility for myself, and I don't know how to behave properly. Well, I think I'll try to be myself just as I do in usual life. I am sure it's not so important if people have age difference for friendship or more but truly I like older friends more than younger. They just know much more. I hope you understand I will arrive in March but maybe in the beginning of April and I will visit many cities because of job hoping we could meet. You know I am not rich and I am not much interested in career I just need to work and do all for better life which is better abroad. Life is really not easy. I hope you understand where I am living, it's just a small town with cold weather. I am going to do all the paperwork after a week or two.
I am dermatologist and beauticians and I need working practice abroad so I guess it will be great. Are you really want to meet me??

I try to keep healthy life and stay very active. I do workout in the gym three times a week go jogging and bicycling when it's sunny and warm, I like to dance. I like being outdoors and do everything if there is a good company. I am an optimist and I seek good things in every event in my life.
The life is short why spend it on drama.
If you asked my friends about me they would tell you I am very laid-back person. I am easygoing and respectful. I treat people like I'd like to be treated. I love children and animals. I find them all very sincere and funny.

I guess you'd like to know what I am looking for. Well I am looking for simple things. I want to meet a right man. A strong man who is though capable to be careful, tender and loving. I need a partner to be equal. I desire to create a healthy and happy family live in harmony and love each other for all life. I want a soul mate to fulfill and complete one another. I am not a desperate love seeker however who is ready just to fall in love. I am going to build good friendship first. I want to get to know each other and then develop the relationship in something more serious and intimate.

Tell me something more about you. What do you want? What do you expect from woman? I hope I didn't scare you away with my thoughts?
Tell me what do you think about my email at all? I am afraid it looks a bit old-fashioned and lengthy but I want to know much about you Jay because I am really interested to know you in real after my coming. So please tell me more.

Letter 5

Hello Jay. How was your day? I am sorry I was busy often but it seems I could have more free time soon cause I am starting to finish my job and preparing for my trip. I don't know the exact date but I hope I will leave my country at the end of March.

I'm in good spirit and I guess you want to know more about me. I am from small town Mikun. I am not sure could you find it at the map cause it's located in military unit area but you can try to find it. I'm dermatologist and I like my job. I'm working many years here in small clinic but I decided to move. I've read much about life abroad. I've found the job agency last summer and asked for job. I have been waiting for authorities authorization for leaving Russia. The agency found the job proposal and I've agreed. The job's place could be in any place and I will live there also because the employers afford the apartment for a living for foreign personnel. I could choose the town from town's list for my living. During the next weeks I will be informed about details of my future job but now I know I will work as medic and arrive first for visiting agency representation.
I will get papers for my employer and will arrive to the place where I will live and work at least for one year.
I guess I could choose a location for living and working but I will visit many places before for having practice.
Maybe it will be close to you and we could meet several times. That would be great!

I could not be a medical doctor first time because I haven't practice but employers need in consultants from Russia like me for international working. I never was abroad before but I am sure your country is great and I am happy I could have a place for living there. I don't know who will be my employer and where exactly I will work because I could choose it after my practice. Anyway I could visit some places before I start to work and maybe I could visit you if we decide to meet. What do you think? It will be great to talk by phone soon but let's learn more about each other by email first, okay? I hope you are for real and my phone number is 987-7O4-35O1.
We have a military area here and it could be a problem to call overseas because of politics. Please try to call me I will be happy to hear your voice.

I am not so good in computers and I am not use messengers and social sites I just haven't time for it. It's not important for me if you write other women or still keep writing it's your choice but I talk only with you because I haven't much time to talk with other people. I am really not a good in typing. I will answer all of your questions gradually it's not really possible telling all the things in one email. I am not type of women who trying to prove things to other people. I am telling the truth about any things and I like when people are the same. I want you to know I haven't any secret plans for marriage abroad because I could get even a citizenship after a time of good working but I am still in search of my soul mate. I use the job's computer. I could access internet only few times in a day. I could use it because I work here. There is no possibility to use webcam or messenger on my workplace but you can see me on the site mikunclinic.ru

I want you to know I have not any boyfriend now cause I am going to relocate and I am interested to know more about you Jay! I like to watch movies, to listen to music, to read, to meet friends, to cook, to sport and many other things when I have free time. I like many kinds of music also. There are so many music in the world.
Jay, please tell me what do you want? Would you like to meet me after learning more about each other?
If you are not for real and looking for pen pal or fun please don't waste your time. I hope I will get many emails from you because I want to know more and your life there. I hope you understand and I hope we could develop our knowledge about each other. Please specify exact name of your town including postal code and I will try to find out maybe I could visit you when I will have a practice! I will ask agency about potential employers in your area and I hope I could come for a visit in your town!

By the way, I have a good friend here in Russia! She takes many of my pictures and her name is Olga.
I'm attached picture of me and Olga for you. Appositely, How do you like it? Do you have more pictures?
I will wait for your email and hope I'll get it soon.
Svetlana.

Letter 6

Dear Jay,
First, I want you to know that I have the internet access at my work only. Please, don't get upset if I can't reply your email right away.
Sometimes I just haven't got enough time to compose a full email and I don't like to write back with a single line.
I am really glad to receive your emails. I have never been in correspondence with a man from another country and I actually fall into a stupor when I think where I should start my email. So I made up my mind to think about you as you were a person or a friend I just haven't been seeing for a long time. I think this way our talking would be more relaxed and pleasant.
Jay, you may ask me anything you would like to know. I am willing to talk on any reasonable topic. This will help us to get to know better about each other. Tell me about your family, your friends, work and your routine life. I would like every our email contains as much details as possible. So when we meet each other we will feel like old friends.

I will come after several weeks. Currently, my paperwork is almost done. As soon as it's issued I will take my baggage and get on a plane.
I will let you know when I have a certain date in my schedule. I feel so free and I am ready to make a new life in a new place for myself.
Perhaps I shouldn't touch the question but last three years were very tough for me. I don't remember have I told you that my dad past away and I lost a loved one an year earlier.
I was going to marry that guy. He was handsome kind and careful. I had close relationships before him but they had never went so far.
You know I studied at the University, then built the career, worked hard and it seemed to me that I had the whole life before me.
I thought I had plenty of time for my personal life and put the relationships aside until I met him.
I understood that everything I have done before became meaningless because I had no real love in my life. I fell in love seriously, madly.
I flew to my work and waited when it's done to see him again. We began to date and then he asked me to move to his home and live together.
I accepted his proposal and never regretted. It's really the best time in my life.

You know my father had been the most important man in my life before I met the guy. I could rely upon my father in anything at anytime.
He never accuse me, whatever I did. He tried to understand and help me. That guy was the same. Two year after our first encounter I lost that man. He was killed in the accident. I was completely devastated. I felt as though someone took my soul out of the body. Then my dad died and the life just stopped. I lost two the most important men in my life one by one. I have no any sibling. The only relative I have now is my mother. I remember us sitting home for hours, wordless, looking at the pictures of our men with tears in the eyes. I just went to my work, eat and sleep. My best friend Olga had to make great efforts to reanimate me. She came to my home, put clothes on me and dragged me out of the house. We went for a walk, go to the cinema, yoga class, played to her daughter.

One day miracle happened. Something just ticked inside me and I became aware of the fact I am alive and I must continue and complete my life.
Now I am fully recovered and I feel grateful to heavens I had these men in my life. I understand it was a trial for me and I should open my heart to the world and people around me in another, new, giving aspect of me. I have changed a lot, for the better, I think. I started to read the new-age and self-development literature, got interested in the eastern philosophy and psychology. I returned to the study of English.
I decide to move from there. It was my dream for a long time. And now this idea just filled me up. I found the way to move. I always admired this dream and I am resolved on realizing it in my life. I made a decision to move to the most flourishing country make a career and create a nice family there. I hope one day I will meet a man again, who gives me a new impulse, lust for life and longing for becoming better every day I am with him.
Do you think I've already met him? :-) I want neither to be a burden to my man nor use him for my goal achievement. I am immigrating as a professional, a specialist. I've saved money to come there on my own. I've found an employment agency that is helping me to move.

First I have to go to Toronto to attend their office and get the documents for my employment. I'll choose a certain job and sign a contract there.
After that I will visit some places for practice and then I will begin my work. I don't know the exact place yet because they said there are a few vacancies for me. Another good news is that my employer will give me an apartment at first. I think this is very good help to start off in a new place.
What do you think?

Well, this is my story. Hope it's not too frank or sad. I just wanted to show you my motives and intentions. Now your turn.
Tell me about your goals and dreams.
Svetlana.

p.s. I am sending you another pictures of me and my best friend Olga. I think it is a good idea
emailing pictures and making a short descriptions where and at what circumstances they were taken.

Letter 7

I just find out the country code of Russia is +7, so you need to dial country code then my cell number 9877O435O1. By the way you can find me on site of my job as I told you. It is mikunclinic.ru/spetsialisty/
Jay, how are you? Do you know tomorrow is big holiday of all the women in Russia called international women's day? I will have more free time after this holiday because I finished my work and starting to do all the paperwork for leaving my country.
That's great and I feel good having high spirit! Spring is everywhere and I hope you will have a good mood also! I am sending another my picture taken during my work.
The quality is not so good because it's cell taken picture. Hope you like it?
Thinking of you, Svetlana.

Letter 8

Today is holiday but I have a few minutes for sending email. I am sending my other picture for you Jay, do you like it? What do you think about me?
Until next time, Svetlana.

Letter 9

Hi Jay,
I am really glad to receive your emails and send my reply. Thank you, it's very refreshing! I wish I could write to you often but my boss loaded me with extra work besides my usual duties. She wants me to revise and complete all the paper work we've been having in last three years. I think she is kind of jealous of my leaving abroad. I don't blame her I just want to have more time on the computer to be able to contact you. I did not get your call and I guess something is not working in international calling.
Jay, how are you these days? Sometimes I may get carried away by my thoughts. Well, I better tell you about myself a little.
Although I am a sociable and open person, I don't have many close friends. I am talking about whom I can go to any time day or night and speak to any subject. I have a few friends I have known for years. Almost all of them are married and have children.
With the increase of years I look at my friends and notice that they tend to stop getting interested in new things and do what they are used to be doing. I thought to myself “I have to do something about that” and so I decided to became an instigator of doing new things. I got that idea from a series of novels about a fictional character, a detective. He tried and acquired a new skill every year of his life and mastered them so by the age of 50 he'd become very multifaceted professional, though his personal life was not so successful. I know it is just a fiction and in real life nobody has that much time. I think this may be a good idea we can aim for.
I am sure that man must live for some reason, idea or goal. It doesn't matter what the certain thing would be, because there are no more or less important things. As for me the ideal I would like to realize is creating a perfectly balanced and harmonious life.
I haven't found the whole picture of my perfect life yet. It will be changing with the lapse of time for sure, but the main parts of it are my family, career, health, relationships, social activities, helping others, continuous development and inner growth of myself.
I would also like to find a partner (my lover and friend) who shares my ideals and wants to introduce his own thoughts.
Jay, I am very cheerful! I love to laugh and have fun, I love to tell and make jokes. I am not sarcastic, rather kind and friendly.
I like big parties. From time to time my friends and I go to a night club to dance and sing karaoke. But the real feast for me is more relaxed atmosphere somewhere outdoors. I like fishing, camping and picnics. My favorite thing is to hang out on the beach with friends where folks take their children, loads of stuff and drinks and swim and play all day long. I like to be close to the water.
My father often took me fishing when I was younger. I remember we got up early with the sun rising, took a boat and sat together for hours, enjoying the landscape and slow talking.
I am a visual person. I like beautiful things and prefer simple and natural forms and colors. I think of myself as kind of an artistic type; perhaps I could become a designer. I like to make things with my hands. I can decorate a home and make it comfortable, I can sew and make any item of clothes or curtains. I am a homemaker. Currently I am trying to master mehndi, it's temporary henna tattoos.
Another hobby of mine is gardening. My mother has a small garden and I like to help her grow vegetables and flowers in it.
There is something miraculous in caring for plants and bringing in the harvest. I love animals. There is a farm not far from my home and I like to feed and ride horses there.
I have a passion for cinema and reading. I like to go to the movies, especially 3D, because there you can be plunged in the scene entirely.
I prefer to watch movies with a sense, some philosophy, movies about feelings and ideas. My favorite films that come to my mind now are Avatar, Meet Joe Black, Yes Man, The Blind Side, Harry Potter, The Great Gatsby, The Martian. The latest good movie I have watched was The Revenant.
Did you watch them? I also have a dream, I want to have a home theater system with a big screen TV. That's great to invite a couple of friends and spend evening watching a real good movie together. Do you agree? As for reading, now I am reading Harry Potter books in English.
These are my first books in English and I know they are for children but I like the movies and decided to begin with simple things.
What about you? What books and authors do you like? What would you recommend to read?
I think a person must try as many things in his life as possible. Tell me about your passions and hobbies. I am open to new things and I would like to try everything. I just need a partner to do it with. We are always short of time, money or energy to do something new.
I know a small trick though. You can make a plan to do one (or two) new things every year and if you can keep to it you will get a lot of new experiences and emotions eventually.
By the way, you must know that I have told to my friends about you. They were rather surprised about it. They surely knew I could dare to meet a guy online, after making my decision to move but no one expected me to do it just before my departure.
Yesterday we had dinner together at my friend's home and they've been warning and frightening me with all these TV shows and movies about creeps and serial murderers that catch girls over the internet and kill or make them sexual slaves.
I know they just want me to be safe so I told them that you are good guy and you will be able to take care of me if needed.
Jay, I've just read my email again and I don't know what I wanted to write you at first. I wrote a really long email.
I have written most of it at home on paper and just typed and added a few thoughts here at work. Although I used to keep a diary and I have some experience in exact wording, to express my thoughts is still a difficult task for me. Now I am not sure that everything I've written above would be interesting to you. So don't be hesitant to criticize and tell me everything you think about it.
I suppose we must go beyond the bounds of our comfort zone from time to time to make ourselves better. Do you agree?
That's enough for now. I am waiting for a long email from you.
Yours, Svetlana.

Letter 10

Jay, two pictures for you. I am sorry about quality it's cell pictures also but I like them.
One is from my work inside of hospital car and second is fall of 2016. I hope you like it.
How is your day and what you will do this weekend? I am going to meet my friend Olga tomorrow.
I will write more later, thinking of you, Svetlana.

Letter 11

Hello Jay,
Yesterday I met my best friend Olga, we talked much and she says hi to you! I am sorry I could write you yesterday and sorry if I didn't answer to some your questions right away. Say the truth I thought I have said most of things you asked about. However I will try to write again about that and I hope you will answer my questions too. How is your weekend going? We have a zero weather temperature here and spring is coming! I did not get a call or message from you but I tried to find out about that I guess I can't use my cell for abroad. Did you see my picture on job site?
Jay, it's thrilling to know I have a friend I've never seen but I am about to meet him soon. We exchange our thoughts and ideas and it seems to me as if we've known each other for a long time. I can feel and clearly understand everything you tell me. You know I am both excited and nervous thinking about our first meeting. I long for it and try to imagine how it will actually come. Can you see it? I think I will be a little shy at first as I always am but I will feel at home fast.

Tell me a little about your personality. What do you appreciate in people and what you can't stand for? As I told you before I am calm and do not easily get angry. I try to think before acting though I don't quite succeed sometimes and I can do something thoughtlessly and spontaneously.
Usually if I decided to do something I attempt to complete it. I don't regret an incident that can't be repaired. I take it as a lesson to learn from it and avoid the same mistake in the future. I am trying to have no expectations and demands of anybody. I think I must better work on my personal discipline, make the example for others and be honest to myself first. The most of all I value integrity and consistency in people. I always try to keep my word and arouse the same qualities in others.

I easily forgive and give the second chance if a person regrets and asks for it because I believe everyone is worth it. I can't bear with betrayal and pretence, cruelty and violence. Despite I can understand the reasons of his action, because I know that aggression is the sign of inner pain and weakness, I won't stay beside him. I believe everyone makes his or her choice in what reality he or she wants to live and everyone is capable to change his or her own life. You know those tragical events in my life made me to rethink my ideals and change my attitude to many things.
That time I happen to come across the book ‘The Power of Now’ by Eckhart Tolle. The book became one of the things that helped me to overcome the pain and return to life. I still have and reread it from time to time. Did you hear about the book?

In my usual time I like to have daily routine. I get up at the same time every morning, even if it's a weekend and I don't have to go anywhere.
I read that everything in the Universe has it's cyclicity, for example seasons or day-night cycling. Our body has its' physiological cycling as well.
We feel good if we keep it. I like to make lists and schedules and strike out an item when it's done. I work long hours, from early morning to late night.
I do my job and some administrative duties. Usually I work every second day three or four days a week but last weeks I have to go there more often because of my extra work. On the other hand I can email you more often now. I always seek a positive aspect of the situation.

Jay, I am so glad that I can easily talk to you about all these things that concern me. Sometimes I feel slight fear of the unknown I'll meet.
Whether I will be able to arrange everything and settle down and start it without problem and difficulties. I am glad there will be a man I can count on.
I think it's obvious to you now that I have some plans for you and not only being a friend. I really count on something more. I understand I can't fall in love through email correspondence but for now I like everything I have read about you and I suppose we have very good chance to begin more intimate relationship when I come.

I am sending another picture from my work and I hope you like it? I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Thinking of you, Svetlana.

Letter 12

I found my picture from last year when I was riding bicycle in my town. I hope you like it too. I want you to know Jay tomorrow I will have information about my coming. I am sorry I can't write a long letter today and yesterday I could not enter internet but I am thinking of you every day. How is your day Jay? Let me know what do you think about our meeting after my coming?
Do you really want it? That's will be soon!!!

Letter 13

Dear Jay,
It became my favorite time of the day when I can sit here at the computer. Once again I want to apologize if I delay my reply. Lately I was passing some medical tests and it took almost all my free time. To be honest I hate to go to doctors appointments and be in the clinic as a patient.
I've got good news for you regarding my travel. First, I have completed all the medical issues and they concluded that I am totally healthy.
I am aware of my physical state without their tests but you know your government needs some paper to let me in.
You must have known how much paperwork is involved in the immigration process. All papers and copies must be properly translated and certified.
I am happy they are finally done. The second news is about my visa. It will be ready in a week. I've tried to find out a precise date of my flight in the agency but nobody seems too bothered with it. They said there are a few reserved flights and it depends on how soon my visa is issued.
For now let's continue the process of getting to know each other over the email. I will try to do it more often from now. I have a number of main office of employment agency. It is +13477057801. I have also a personal code for checking my coming date. It's 0585. I tried to call several times but it seems my cell still not working for calling abroad. Jay, if you have a chance please try to dial this number and let me know what they say about my coming okay? I hope it will be not hard for you.

Do you have anything new happening? How are you? I want to tell you about an amusing incident. Yesterday I visited Olga again.
She is a single parent of Sasha, her daughter, who is very nice and turns five next week. The three of us went for a walk, in the park, to breath the fresh air and work up an appetite before the dinner. On our way back we walked by an old, deserted house when Sasha heard some squealing. Upon entering the house we found three small kittens, a month old at most. The kittens were shivering for fear and possibly starvation.
We were stroking the kittens to comfort and warm them when a red and white cat appeared. It was very alarmed and started hissing at us, to protect its young. After finding out the cat was male we were amused at his protective instincts. Impossible to tell whether he was the bio-father or not but it was incredible to see him take care of the kittens after their mother died. I had never seen a male cat do that and found it touching if odd.
After talking, we took the kitten home to save their lives as they were very weak and hungry. They would have definitely died of starvation.
Sasha was happy to help as it has always been her dream to have her own kitty and now she gets to care for three at once.
She was delighted to care for the kittens all evening long. Despite being a little girl she is good with animals and wants to become a vet, so she can treat animals, when she grows up. Olga let her keep one kitty for herself and care for the other two until finding them new homes.
Sasha said it was the best birthday present ever.
Then we had a dinner together after that we sat and drank hot tea with home-made pie. It was very warm and sweet dinner.
I so much love such pleasant family evenings. I have known Sasha from her birth and I was the one who helped Olga to take care of her baby.
I got so attached to Sasha that I call her my daughter. I looked at Sasha patting the kittens with happy smile on her face and my heart filled with joy.
Children really know how to live in the current moment and enjoy life and every small thing. We, adults, must learn from them how to do it.
Then I told Sasha that I am going to move to another country and miss her very much. She asked if she could come and visit me there.
She said she would like to see my boyfriend. I guess Olga told her about you and me. Sasha said she loves Disney animations and she'd like to go to a Disney amusement part with Olga, me and you. What do you think about it? I think we could take a small vacation, go around and see interesting places and the sights all together, couldn't we?

Jay, I've just caught myself at the thought that I make plans for the future as if we are together already. I actually have very strong feeling towards you. I am afraid I can't explain it because it's very mixed and hardly perceptible. It's like we are somehow connected and I have known you for a long, very long time, maybe for several lives. It's very warm and pleasant sense. I believe a soul is immortal and it meets the same harmonious souls in every life. When we meet such a person we can feel at ease and relaxed just after a while. I hope it doesn't sound too esoteric to you.
I am not going to scare you off with my thoughts? I will wait your email and I hope you could help me dialing the number I gave. I am sending the picture of me and my mother's cat called Vasya. Hope you like it. Svetlana.

Hello my dear Jay!
How are you doing? I hope everything is fine with you. I am so excited today! I could hardly wait for a moment when I am here to email to you.
Do you know how much our relationship's changed my life. I find out myself thinking about you, our meeting and new life constantly. I daydream that I have already leaving Russia in my mind and then I get a little surprised to realize that I am still here.
Jay, I've been thinking about us a lot of time and I've discovered the cause. I perceive us as we're a couple already.
Yesterday evening I watched a movie on TV but I don't know how it's called because I watched not from the beginning. I must say it impressed me very much. It reminded me of us, our situation, our relationship. What is the relationship actually? It's not a physical substance.
Whether a person can have feelings towards someone who has no body? From that picture I see that he can. Indeed, the essence is to have the person who lives with us in our mind and heart, feel happy and sad together, read each other's mind. It must be felt if he is always with you or inside you. I think this is the true relationship instead of a physical proximity of two bodies.
Jay, do you believe that we are congruous to each other? I really think we are. I consider you to be a good man and I would like to meet you and develop our relationship into something more deep and intimate. I have already told you that I don't need much to be happy.
I seek simple things to complete my life. I don't know if you have any idea about Russian women. Of course, you know they are beautiful and they take good care of themselves and their family. In my opinion, their number one quality is their entire loyalty to husbands.
I know not all women are the same but it's a national character. So I have already found a good job and now I want to have a man, I could respect and love for the rest of my life. I know my words may sound too straightforward. Please, don't be awkward with it I am just trying to be totally frank with you and show my true wishes and intentions.
Well there is an update about my travel I want to share with you. Today I've got my papers from my agent because I visited Moscow last Monday.
I had an interview and now my papers are done. I visited the agency office and received all travel and employment documents there. I will get a plane ticket and let you know the precise time and date of my arrival then. By the way my visa will be good for year first but my agent told me I can easily prolong it if I have a job or get married. After I spend some years living there I can become an citizen, that's my permanent purpose.
Jay, I've learned that I would be doing about 70 thousands a year. Wow! This is a crazy vast sum of money for me. Moreover, I will receive 5000 as an advance to get settled in the new place. I think I can start my life off smoothly with this money. What do you think?
I feel so happy to be a member of this program. Didn't I tell you that I paid only 1500 for my participation? I have a contract with Moscow employment agency and they are doing all papers for me. All traveling expenses are paid by my employer. They are concerned to get the best specialist from other countries for less money. I am lucky I passed their tests and they took me into the program. Jay I am sorry for chaotic email but I have great news. I've received my document.! Although I was really nervous about visiting the embassy everything went off well.
The next step is to take my luggage and get on a plane. I am longing for it! By the way I made a digital copy of my passport for the agency and I've decide to send you pictures as well. This is my first international ID! Thank you for all you telling me and doing for me Jay!
I've got information from my agent that I need to arrive on 22th of March and that's so soon.. Sorry, I can't write much now. I have to visit the agency and booking the flight ticket. They will give me my travel papers and the information about my flight. Tomorrow I will write you again telling you everything in details. Kiss you, Svetlana.

Letter 15

My dear Jay, I did not know how to begin my email and how I can tell you such a things. I see I must do it because I can't hide it from you nor keep silence any longer. I did not want to spoil your weekend but mine is already spoiled yesterday. I appreciate our relationship highly and I am afraid it may be affected. Also I don't want you to be insulted in the least degree so, please, accept my excuses if I do. Well, the matter is that I received unexpected and very unpleasant news from my agency. You know that I am rather an independent person and I don't like to ask others for any help. This time I can't handle the situation myself and I am going to ask you a favor. I need your assistance to complete my travel. Now I will give you all the details so you could get deep understanding before making any decision. As you know when I'd gotten my visa I went to the agency to take my papers and ticket.
There I learned they would had a problem with the exchange program. They were about to suspend it because they hadn't received any payment from your country to cover expenses and send employees there. I demanded an explanation for the whole process. The fact is that when an employer anticipate in the program he pays all expenses and insure every worker coming abroad. In case a worker doesn't come an employer receives reimbursement. However underwriters have stopped insuring specialists coming. They don't want to take risk in the international confrontation conditions. Nor employers want to risk their money paying expenses without any guarantee of a worker arrival. The director of the agency was truly sorry for me and other participants. He said it's not fair when usual people suffer from politicos games. They had faced such difficulties for the first time. The previous group went in January just fine.
They had been expecting the funds came and continued the paperwork as usual. They learnt a few days before my visit that all payments had been suspended. He said the agency would not maintain the program any longer however current participants still can make it. The participants have to pay all the expense by themselves. In that case, the agency gives them all the documentation and airplane tickets, all the conditions on the arrival remain valid. I mean the possibility to choose a job, housing and receiving an advance from an employer. The flight is scheduled on March 22 and money must be paid until the date. Then I asked him how much I must pay. He said the whole amount that includes the fee for the paperwork, airfare and hotel reservation is 5700. Some participants have already paid their service and I thought to myself that I could do it as well. So I told him I am in and paid 2000 right away to keep a seat for me.
The director said that was wise decision because when I come I will receive the advance and good job. It gives me an opportunity to begin new life and restore my financial situation in short time.
Jay, I think you understand that I haven't expected such a turn for the worse. I paid to the agency all the money saved up for my move. I also spent a lot of money for the documents legalization and participation in the program.
Now after making this payment I've become almost penniless. The only thought keeps my spirit up is that everything will be all right when I come. So I talked to all my friends and acquaintances. I told them about my situation and asked them to loan some money to me. My request helped me to see the real essence of some of my friends. I know that true friend is being known in grief not happiness. Some of them was sincerely sympathetic with me when others just masked their gloat with forced smiles and excuses. Well, it is not the matter, I was just feeling so rotten asking them for help. My friend Olga gave me around five hundreds, she's been saving money for a new furniture. She said that my success is more important to her than a new sofa in her apartment. A couple of friends also helped me to get another 900. Then my mom gave me her savings, another thousand. I am very grateful to them all. With their help I could collect 2400. I have tried all resources to gather the rest of the money but I had no success. Now I want to ask a favor of you. I am short of 1300.
Could you, please, lend that money to me? I need it to complete my travel. I will repay it to you as soon as I come there and get my advance. I give you my word. I am so very sorry for making this request. I don't know how to ask for help.
I would never ask you if I had more time or other resource to do it myself. I've been in deep thought, I've been hesitant whether I should ask you. Then I came to conclusion that I have two ways only: abandon my plans or do everything depending on me, just to gain my end. I thought to my self – I have one more friend I can ask for help. I want to be honest with him, I have a problem I can't solve yourself. Let him know all the circumstances and if he has good and true intentions and means he would help me to come there. Another reason I've decided to ask you for assistance was my thought – if I was you and I learnt you need my help, I would do everything to help you come to me and begin new life.
Moreover I would got disappointed if you didn't ask me for help and gave up your plans. Well, here I am. I don't know whether it was good idea to tell you all the things. I know that you may think many different things about me now. I want to say you something before I close my email. I am real mature woman and I need an equal. I know that a relationship is responsibility. I am ready to accept the responsibility for our common future and happiness. I am ready to work hard for everything we want to have, no matter there is a physical or spiritual thing. From what I've learnt about you I feel that you are the man I would like to spend the rest of my life with. I understand that my request may affect our relationship but I do this in hope we are enough mature to talk frankly. I believe it's right way although it is hard. Jay, please, think well about my request. I am very serious about us, I am open and frank to you. I feel that we are very right for each other and I want us to meet and prove it in reality. We must use this chance to change our life for the better. We are worthy of having happiness. I need your faith and your help to do the last step. Please, give me good news, tell me you try to help.
But please give the true exact answer. I really never wanted to be a beggar. With all my love, your woman, Svetlana.

Letter 16

Hello my dear Jay.
It was very hard time for me because of my request. I did not receive your response and I was very nervous.
Your answer is very important for me that's why I was waiting for this day during all night cause I couldn't sleep. I have many thoughts about my situation and about my question to you.
I haven't much time for agency payment. Of course I never supposed about these circumstances. Jay, I'm trying not to lose the hope. You know, Olga promised me to visit me today. She wants to know what's going on.
I don't want to tell her all the things I have in my head. I will try to be relaxed. I want to tell her about you. She need to know that you think about me and trying to help me because I'm sure it's the truth. I will tell her you are not the person who run away from friends and their troubles cause I guess you are careful and valuing not only own life. I'm sure you are not person who overly preoccupied with himself and needs. I don't know what to say now.
I will wait for your letter with hope.. The uneasiness tear is in my heart but I was trying to be sincere.
Thinking of you, Svetlana.
