Hi my new best friend Jack!!! I thanks you for various pictures. I like your pictures. How are you? How is your job? I hope everything is alright. I can confidently say you are my best friend. I feel our friendship is continuing. I see you want to communicate with me. I also want to communicate with you. I have many friends here. My attitude towards them is good and to you good too. I like you. I would say that there is some extraterrestrial force between us. And it attracts us. Don’t you think so? I want to correspond with you. I want to write to you every minute. But it is impossible. You and I are busy people. I have only a couple of minutes to write you a letter. Jack you may think that a young and beautiful lady and still not married?!
Young and beautiful) not shy)... But I think this is true). And I hope you also agree with my words?) Jack. I have not met my ideal man but I am sure it will happen soon. I feel it. I had relationships earlier.
But that was not love. I can’t have relationship with a man without being loved. That is not right. Do you agree? That is the reason I am alone now. That is the reason I am looking for the real love Jack.
Please tell me about your past relationships with women. I want to know what kind of person you are. Do you understand Jack? I will wait for your reply. I am sure you will write soon. I am waiting impatiently for your letter and will surely reply!

Letter 2

Hello Jack! I am very glad to get your letter. You are interested in me)… And that is good news for me. I was afraid to see negative reaction from your side. I have never had friends via internet before.
And that scared me. But you are a good man. I see that in your letter.
That means you have found something in me, and maybe want to know each other better. I am glad, that you have attached your photo with the letter. I like your photo! Thanks! Your age does not bother me. As for me so it's just digits. For me the main soul and heart of man. If a man is young in heart and soul, then age does not matter. I like older men. Older men are more mature and clever. I hope you are not worried about our age difference? I wrote about my life on the whole in my first letter. You already know I live in Agrafenovka!. It is a usual small village in Ukraine. But I love it so much. I love to have a walk on its. You know I like to walk, together with my friends or alone.
When I am outside alone I dream. Dream about future life. Where everything is good, I have a good job that brings pleasure and good income. I dream, that I will meet my love. No doubt I had close relationships. But they ended with nothing behind. Many Ukrainian men are rude and I always wanted to be loved, to feel warmth. I think everything will be alright. And what do you dream about? Do you like just to sit and dream? I like to see new films in the cinema, I also like to read. And what about you? Please tell me what films and books do you like? I am really interested in it. What do you in your spare time. Maybe I ask too many questions. But knowing more about you is interesting for me. By the way, about my village. I think you can find it on the map easily. You need to find Kiev. My village is located 453 kilometers (281 miles) to the regional center Kiev. And again shortly about myself. My favourite sports is swimming. I am good at swimming.
From time to time I go to the swimming pool. My favourite colors are pink and blue. My favourite flower is a tulip. In my first letter I wrote about the opportunity to visit your country. Yes, that is true.
I work as the nurse. I am a young nurse, and I am a successful girl)… That is not shy but anyway. I studied in the university in Kiev to get this specialty. I studied English language at university. My English proficiency is quite good. And I can easily learn another foreign language. I don’t doubt at it. I like my job. Earlier everything was alright and the salary was worthy. But now everything changed. Maybe the economic crisis caused this. Ukraine was deeply influenced by it and also my job too. But I am an optimist, and I believe in bright future. And recently they have offered me a new job in your country.
That is very prospective and a good salary. I have thought about it much. Firstly I was afraid to go to another country alone and I denied that offer. But later I made my mind to begin a new life and I agreed with that offer. Now I am waiting for arranging on all the aspects with my job. But I don’t know when exactly. Soon I will be able to go to your country and to work in hospital. I will help people in your country. I really want to find worthy job that will bring pleasure and good income. But please let’s not speak about money. I believe in bright future and every man should build his own future. Do you agree with me? What do you think about it? I want to know your opinion. I think you have understood the reason of my letter. I want to get acquainted with you. I will come to your country and will not be alone. I will know you. And maybe we will have a future where we are together. Are you against it? OK. I will end my letter for today. It is also as big as the previous. But I want to tell you so much. I hope you understand this. And I hope you will patient enough to read this big letter from an unknown girl from Ukraine. I send you a photo where I am a little girl. and photos from aerobics. I hope you like my photos. I am waiting for your letter Irina

Letter 3

Hello my new friend Jack! Thanks, that you have answered on my letter. My name is Irina. I am very glad to get acquainted with you. And I hope we can become good friends.
I'm not very good at using internet but anyway I decided it is a good way to get new friends. That is why I want to explain the reason why I am here right now. It is possible, I will visit your country soon, and I have made a decision to get acquainted with someone from your country. And at this point I am writing to you. I have never been abroad and I don't have friends outside Ukraine. I really want to know more about you. Could you tell me about you, about your lifestyle in the next letter, please. I hope it is not difficult for you. I will also write about myself. It is interesting to find out about your family, maybe about your job, friends and hobby.
Ok, I'm 28 years old. And I am sure it is a good age for a lady.
Because I am still young but nevertheless have got a good life experience. I'm 168 sm tall, and my weight 53 kg. You know I am fit, because I like sports. One of the most important things is to look after myself. In a sound mind, a sound body. I am sending my photos so you can see me. You know, I am not very photogenic. The photos are usually not very beautiful. But they are important for correspondence so one can see another. I hope you will like me. By the way, I am looking forward to see your photos in the next letter. It is very interesting for me to see a person you writing to. So I want to ask you a few questions so we will know each other better. What about sport? Alcohol? Smoking? Please tell me about your habits. As for me I am an only child in the family and I don't have my own kids but I have a dream. I have a dream to build my own family and have wonderful children. My father died, when I was a child. I really miss him. My mother has been growing me since I was 2 years old and she taught me alone. My mother works in hospital. She has got a good job. She has been working in a hospital for a long time and she knows a lot of people. She is respected in our city. I have got a few best girl friends. I spend much of my spare time with them. They say, I have a good sense of humor. I like to laugh at a good joke. I am a cheerful person so my friends do. I live in Ukraine. It is a small Agrafenovka village. It is situated 453 km far from Kiev. I think this information will help you to know me better. I am looking forward to know about you, you job, your city. I don't have bad habits, I don't smoke. I am sure it is important for a lady not have bad habits. When gathering together with friends I can drink a glass of wine but not more. I am really keen on cooking. I usually cook fish soup, borsch, salads. You can write about your favourite dish, or maybe your cooking experience. I personally like flowers. They really make our life more beautiful-at home, outside, at work. Oh yes I have forgotten to tell you about my job. I have decided to go on a way of my mum. I have decided to become the nurse and to help people. I work as the nurse in one of our hospitals. I perform different work in hospital. I help the head doctor. I do injections, take blood for analysis etc. I help people. I think, that is enough about me. I has written a really big letter. I hope you are not tired of my little letter. So what do you do? Where do you work? Please tell me about your interests. I am really looking forward to your reply. I hope my letter will not be lost with no attention. I will read your letter with pleasure and will surely reply,

How would you like to send money here? through the Bank? but I do not have a personal bank account.

Letter 8

Hello my dear Jack! The day started very well. I was in good mood but after some hours it got worse. I will tell why. Now I am in the airport. I have made booking my air ticket for March, 1. Later I shall write to you details of my flight. All was good. I have left from the airport with good mood. After I have gone on customs for the control of documents and for interview. They told me how to behave in your country. I have told him, that I am going to work in your country, and I have the friend there (it about you). He will help me with all. They have told, that it is very good. They have checked documents. With my documents all is ok. After, they asked to show them cash that's 1500 dollars. I have asked them why?! They have told such laws. Anyone person who leaves Ukraine should carry cash with himself. Thus a person proves his solvency abroad within month. I should guarantee him my solvency in your country. I did not know about these laws. I was upset. I have extra money 800 dollars. This money, I got from Ministry of Health. And I need else in 700 dollars to show them. I have contacted Ministry of Health. Directly with my head physician. I have explained a situation. But they cannot help me with money more unfortunately. Because they helped me so much with my trip at this stage. My mum also has given me her last money for a trip to Kiev. And she has no more unfortunately. I do not know even, where to get 700 dollars here in Kiev. I alone here. I do not want to ask money. I got used to solve problems myself. Only for me it is difficult to solve a problem with money here in Kiev. I alone here. I have no friends here in Kiev unfortunately. I halfway in your country. I want to arrive to you. I do not wish to come back home. I have spent many forces and time for this trip to your country. I on nerves. I did not think, that will be difficult to arrive to your country. I have asked employees from customs, maybe there are other ways for a trip to your country.
But they have told, that it is one way as I can arrive to your country, it if I shall have cash 1500 dollars to show them. Laws very strict. It because of a political situation in the Europe. A problem with immigrants. Therefore I should have cash 1500 dollars to prove to them my solvency in your country. Jack! It is a shame to me to speak about it. I feel not dexterously. Do not think of me bad. But you can lend to me 700 dollars? I will return your money back as soon as we shall meet at the airport. I told to you, that I should only show cash at customs. It only formality. I do not know where to ask the help here. I will understand, if you will not help me. Yes, you are not obliged to help me. We are familiar on the Internet only. One only is my dream to arrive to your country for new work and a meeting with you. She is my big dream and the purpose. I shall wait for yours the answer, now I shall try to call to you and to explain a situation!
Please answer me soon. Yours Irina.

Hello my Jack! I thought about the future for a long time. I think you realize that this is an important decision in my life and I could not make up my mind weighing all pros and cons. I shared my ideas with my mother. I told her all about us. She smiled and understood me. My mother can always understand me. She approves of my decision. She trusts you. She thinks you are a very good and honest man. And you can show me your country and meet me. I think also so. I want to write more about my plans for the future. I will speak with my Director (head physician). They have been offering me to go to Australia for a long time. And I decided to agree. And this is due to you. I will tell my head physician that I agreed to work in Australia. I think he will not be against it and will be glad with my decision. And this is the right decision. The Director has been advising me to go for a long time. We will arrange some points with those hospitals, where I will possibly work. I will have to make a choice. I will come to you and we together will think about it. Will you help me with advice? Isn’t it difficult for you? I do not know what type of visa I will get. it will be a working visa.
