Letter 3
My name is Olena again :--))) I hope you remember me as I've sent you a letter not long ago. Now I am sending you my e-mail where you can write me. I am sure you've got a lot of questions to me and you want to know more about myself. I am going to tell you about myself. I'm pleased to get acquainted with you. I am 28 years old and I am a single girl without husband and children. How do I look like? You can see my photo at the attached file; I am 5.5(170cm) height and 110(51kg) weight. What kind of woman am I? I am a tender and sensitive girl who believes in love and wants to meet a man of my life. I want to find a serious man who wants serious relations too. It is very important for me to know what a person has inside of him in his heart, appearance is not important for me at all. I want to meet a kind and honest man. I want to be loved and to fall in love with a man, whom I can take care about, spend time together talking, walking or doing nothing.I live in Kiev; it is the capital of Ukraine. Do you know this country? I have a very nice work; I work in a beautiful shop of women clothes as an assistant. Everything is okay in my life except the country of living. I don't like Ukraine at all. I don't feel stability here and I want to life abroad. I am sure that I can find a good job abroad and earn enough money for living as I can do everything and I like to work. Life in my country is very difficult and life abroad is different. I know that I'll be more protected if I live in any foreign country. Every person needs support and I want to have a person whom I can rely on. My heart wound is already healed and I am ready for new relations with my one and only man. I really want to meet a serious man whom I can give all my feelings and emotions. I am a common woman with normal wishes and I want to have a full life. I am very honest to you and I hope you'll answer me soon and you understand me right! I am sorry but now I have to go as I am writing you from internet cafe. But sometimes I can use my boss computer. Hope I will not lost a job because we are not allowed to use internet or games and etc. at work. Hope you understand me... Hope I'll find your letter next time at my e-mail!!!
Letter 4

Hi! When I looked though my e-mail today I didn't find your letter there for pity. I have been waiting for your answer! Maybe you don't like my appearance and have decided not to answer? Why haven't you reply to me?I want to find a nice friend and we could be good friends. Send me an answer please!
p.s. if you check your spam-folder you could find there more letters from me I think.
Letter 5
Hi! I was very glad to get an answer from you! You know my close friends call me not by my name, they usually call me “KVITKA” in Ukrainian. Only very close friends can call me “Kvitka”. I'll be happy if you call me “Kvitka” too. This name is translated “flower” into English. I want to describe you my life in Ukraine. I am living in a small rented apartment. I live alone and I don't need a big flat. Moreover the rent payment in our country is very high. But I like my apartment, it is very nice and cozy, everything is very comfortable here for pleasant life. If I want to talk to my friends I use cell phone as there is no phone in apartment. Unfortunately international calls are restricted at my cell phone. My self-depended life started very early when I was 19. That time I made a decision to start a life without parents in a new big city and left there. From that time I've seen my parents not very often as we all live in different countries. I am grown-up person now. I am 28 and I am ready for a new stage in my life. I want to have my own family, my beloved husband and have a normal life as many people do. I don't like men in Ukraine I am disappointed with them.I like you. Maybe you'll tell me more about yourself. I am interested to know more about your real life. Do you have a wife? Or had before? Have you ever loved any woman? You know that first of all I am going to visit your country as a tourist and that will be great for us to meet and see one another and to get acquainted closer. I don't want to live in Ukraine; this country has too many disadvantages for me to stay here any longer. Life here is terrible. Once I worked as a nurse in a family with small children. The family was very kind and pleasant. My employer, the family helped me a lot with my speaking languages and now I can communicate without problems thanks to them. My native language is Ukraine. OH! I am going to tell you about my hobbies but in the next letter. I am writing from internet-cafe and my time is over now, I have to go.Waiting for you reply!
Best regards!
P.S. I'll write in a day and you can see my photo attached. Please tell me more about yourself.
Letter 6
have a good weekend! any special plans?
Letter 7
Hello! It is very pleasant to get your letter and to find out you more and more.
Of course I shall tell you about myself in every letter. I told you in my last letter that I'd tell you about my hobbies. I have some hobbies. My favourite one is cooking. As I started my self-depended life very early I had no choice and I had to study cooking. I liked doing it from the very beginning. I like the process of cooking. During preparing a dish I am supposing what taste it will have at the end. I can cook everything. I try to cook different dished from every cuisine of the world. I can cook first and main dishes, meat and fish, vegetables and sweets, I like trying to cook something new. When I have a chance to visit a restaurant I always order a new dish which I've never tried before. I am guessing what is inside of dish to retry cooking it at home. Unfortunately I have no financial possibility to eat at restaurants and it happens not very often, only when my friends invite me. My other hobbies are bowling and billiard.My favourite colours are black and red. I also like to watch movies on TV or in cinema halls. I like different genre: comedies or melodramas and others. Now it is your turn to share your hobbies with me))) Please tell me your favourite dishes and games, and everything about you. Do you like watch movies on TV? Do you watch TV at home at your days-off? On my days-off I try to watch my favourite program Animal Planet. Have your seen this program? Do you have animals at home? From time to time we meet with friends at home to watch any new film together in a good and funny company especially in winter when the weather is bad outside.I don't have bad habits, I don't smoke. I can drink a glass of wine or a bottle of beer very seldom on holidays. By the way I forget to tell about my other hobbies. It is reading and sports. The last book I read was “Loneliness in the internet” written by Vishnevskiy. Concerning sports: I go to the swimming-pool and fitness club. And when the weather is good outside I try to rent a bicycle and ride it outside. When I am doing my hobbies music is always surrounds me. I prefer listen Adele or Enrique Iglesias, ACDC, Metallica while I am cooking or riding a bike. But of course my choice of music depends on my mood)). What do you like to do most of all? What kind of music do you like? I decided to start preparing for travel to your country. gather the entire documents for visa and I hope than in a month I'll get the visa. For pity I have to go now. I hope to get an answer from you next time when I come to check my e-mail.
Letter 8
did you get my letters? sorry once again - how old are you? and where are you from?
I will tell you about myself later.
p.s. do you like my pics?
Letter 9
Here is my new photo for you attached, as I've promised before. You'll get my new photo in every letter. My stepsister Olga is a photographer; she makes the best photos of me I've ever seen.I am doing all the documents to get visa to your country as far as possible and to have a tour to you. After all I need for about a month to finish everything and get visa in my passport and I can fly to you. I'll tell you about my parents and family. My parents divorced long time ago. My mother and father have their own lives in different countries of the world. My parents don't live in Kiev anymore. My mother was already married twice after she divorced with my father. I have a lot of stepsisters and stepbrothers who live in Ukraine and Russia. We have very friendly relations and love one another. My mother's last husband is a Russian by his nationality. We have very good relations with every member of our big family. We send letters to each other from time to time. I go to internet cafe to write e-mails to my parents, stepsisters and stepbrother. But mostly I try to write them from the laptop of my boss at work when she is absent. I am a teacher by my education I started to work with children in kindergarten.I liked my work but unfortunately I had to leave it. Salaries for teachers are so small that it is not enough for normal living. I have noone here who helps me and I have to take care of myself alone, as my parents don't live near to me and seldom help me with money. Even when I meet with a man I prefer to be independent. I am interested in a man but not in his money. It is very important for me to have mutual feelings in relations. I am very devoted to my man and when I have relation with a man try to do everything that he feels comfortable and satisfied close to me. Not every man can appreciate this.I am not that kind of women who can have sex for one night. I need to know a man close, to have feeling and to understand his character. I met a man before who could easily have 2 women at the same time: a wife and a lover. It is not my case of course.I can be only with one beloved man and I can't separate myself between two. My rule is only one beloved man in my life!I had relations with a man two years ago.The relations finished as I understood that a man preferred to spend time with his friends but not with me. He took me to the parties to show what a beautiful doll he had. It was very unpleasant feeling to me and I had to stop our relations.Let's stop talking about sex too, because I am not ready yet to discuss such an intimate topic right now. I hope you understand me correct. Moreover there are my colleagues around me. I don't want that someone read my e-mail to you by chance.I am sorry but I have to go now. My time limit is only 15 minutes today (I use boss laptop). Do you know how internet cafe works? It is a kind of premises where there are a lot of PCs. People can come here and use PC for payment. Dear, I want to know more about you! Could you tell me about your family? Maybe your parents and relations with them? Waiting for your reply soon!
P.S. Please, find attached my photo and please send me your post address to get a post-card from me there.
Letter 10
How are you?
It is magnificent that we've met one another in such a big world with the help of internet.I am not in a good mood today as I don't have good news to tell. I've got some problems at my work. The client (woman) came to our shop to buy clothes, but she was so rude! She talked to me very haughty. I am a common shop-assistant and not the owner of the shop. I really tried to help her to choose good clothes. But she didn't like anything. It is really terrible but people in my country are sure if they have money they are allowed everything. This is one of the reasons I want to leave Ukraine. This country can't give me anything and normal, stable life too. I can't earn enough money for living, renting good apartment or have many other important things. Prices in shops are high even for the most necessary products. My salary is only 300 USD, half of it I spend for renting apartment. The rest 150 USD is for living. How can I live if milk costs 2 USD??? We have very hard lives here. We have war at the east of our country and nobody understands when it comes to the end. People have become aggressive, many companies have to stop their activity because of the situation on the East… it is terrible! Sometimes my parents send me money but it is not enough. They work hard but they don't earn much too and it is not easy for them.I want to leave Ukraine and to start my life in normal developed country. I am saving money to my trip for a long period already and I'll make my dream come true.Soon I'll get visa and I can come to your country to meet you and to get acquainted with you. I am going to work for sure as I have to earn for leaving and provide myself with everything. We need time to become closer. I hope in a month I'll have visa and we'll meet. When I come to your country I am going to live in the hotel which is situated close to your place of living. It'll be comfortable for you and we'll be able to meet any time we want. I have common wished as many people do. I desire about stable life in normal country, I want family and beloved husband. I am so tired to live alone without family and support.I am saving money for my future stable life. I hope you understand me right that I've written to you. I want to share with you my life. And maybe to hear some words of support from you.Now l'll go home to have bath and to relax. Do you think that if a woman and a man take bath together it is romantic? What do you think about taking bath with me? Any dreams about it?Have a nice day, dear!
Letter 11
You understand that it is very lonely here without you…Especially it is very sad when I don't receive any letter from you…You letters are so kind and sensible that I begin to feel affection in my body when I read them…I want to be close to you and your letters are a kind of your part.If I receive your answer soon my life will go on brighter and happier. We have to talk about some important things and I need your help here. Hope to get your answer soon. I miss you, my dear!
Letter 12
Hi! Finally I know the entire information about getting visa. I'll do everything for having it. I am so happy that soon we'll be together and I can see you and touch you in reality. I can't stop waiting for this moment. Please, don't laugh at me and at my strong desire to see you.I'll gather all the documents and bring everything personally to the Embassy. At the Embassy I have to show documents and to pay for visa. I don't know what to do with this and hope you'd help me with it. I've told you that I've been saving money for the trip to you. But unfortunately my sum of money is not enough for paying and I don't know where I can get it right now. I don't want to wait for our meeting any more. I was sure that I should pay for visa at the end of procedure and hope to save money to that moment. Maybe you could help me with my problem? I'll prepare next documents:
- Travel passport;
- Police report;
- Medical certificate,
- Documents from the bank and from my work and others
All the documents in the list will cost 500 USD. I'll get everything on hand and the visa in my passport. I know that it is very big sum of money. Money which I saved before, I spent for making foreign passport. The rest of my saved money is not enough. If I stop the procedure of getting visa now, I would have problems with getting visa later. They say me this at the Embassy. You see the copy of my passport at your e-mail and you know that I am a real woman from Ukraine. You can trust me because you know me enough and I never lie to you. I have only 10 days to pay for visa. As soon as I pay for it I'll get it and have the possibility to fly to you country. My visa lasts 3 months. And I'm going to find a job during this period and earn for myself.I want to be independent. I want to assure you that after I get a job at your country I'll give back this money. When I get the job I will prolong my visa for unlimited period and we have a lot of time for meeting and having fun together. I am asking you to borrow me 500 USD; certainly I'll give you back my debt. I know several ways of sending money to other country. My mother, father and stepsisters sometimes send me money with such systems. They are very convenient and popular in my country. For example: Western Union or Money Gram. They are the quickest way of sending money. Will it be convenient for you to use any system for sending money? You need my address and full name.
Olena Babenko
Name of the street - Simirenko 2/19

City - Kiev,
Region (state) - Kiev,
Zip code - 03134
Country - Ukraine
You can find the detailed information in the following sites:
You can find all the information about offices on site or send money direct from the site. I really need your help and hope for your understanding. I don't want to put off getting my visa or have any risk in the future. Could you send me 500 USD as a loan? Please, give me your answer about your decision.
Here is more additional important information for you: They will ask for the purpose and destination of a transfer you are sending. If you want to send money without a delay of transfer procedure you should say that the money is for your relative. I had a negative experience when I received money from my mother and father. When I tried to get money from the bank they just blocked it until I told that stupid clerk that the money was from my parents. I've tried to borrow money for several times but no one believes that I'll ever give it back. Just imagine yourself on the place of any person I've asked! I'm going to leave abroad and it is possible that I'll never come back. My parents and relatives are poor like me and their average salary is about 300$ (like mine). Banks have refused me to give a loan at the same reason as I'm going to leave the country and will never return the money.It is a vicious circle for me and I am asking you to understand me right! I need your help very much. Give me your answer as soon as possible! Have a nice day!

Letter 14
Hello darling! I clearly understand you. You are right! But I am asking for your understanding too. I am afraid that if I do not pay in 10 days and do not settle for visa I'll have problems with visa in the future. Unfortunately there are very many people who want to leave Ukraine and the rules at Embassy are very strict and must be executed. People who work at the Embassy are very strict and they will speak with you on condition that you have all the documents and payment for visa. I should try hard to get the visa. It is the best opportunity for me to get visa without problems now and I don't want to lose it. The only problem that I have is money.It is not comfortable for me to ask you for money and I am really shamed but I have no choice. I beg for your understanding of my problem and for your help. Dear, I need you and I want to meet you very much! You are a very kind man and i hope that you can find the way to help me! I hope that you want to meet me too. I'll accept any of your decision of course…. With love and best regards!

We will be able to spend together the whole three months! It's wonderful! We will be able to have great time together, discuss everything and get to know one another. I want to be with you and I hope you'll like time which we spend together. Maybe you'll ask to stay with you more time.You've become very close to me. I like you very much!
