Hi Carl!
It's me Tanya. I am glad to see your response and write you today. I am very interested to know you better and didn't think that you will reply so fast! I have to tell you my real name is Tanya or full name Tatyana. Tanya is a short name. I live in Russia. I wanted to edit my profile because some information about me in it is incorrect. I am not good in computers. But now it is not important because you reply me personally and I don't need in my profile now, because I already found someone. It's you Carl. And I want to continue our corresponding with each other. I can tell you about me personally and I will do it in my letters. I will answer your questions and of course will ask you questions too. I hope you will tell me about yourself too. I hope you are not shocked that I am russian girl. I'm 27 years old now but soon I will 28. I hope you are interested in me too and we'll learn more about each other with every next message. How is my english? The most part of english I learned in school. Did I make a lot of mistakes? I am trying to learn english better and I hope I will know it better. I hope you will help me with it. Maybe someday in future we can meet? But I think before that moment we have to know more about us. I send you my photo and I hope you like it. I'd be very glad if you will send me your pictures too. I'm waiting for your answer soon as possible! Write me.

Hi my dear Carl!
You asked me:
I know you would have to have a passport and a visa. Do you have either?
I will have it.
How long does it take to get one?
I don't know I think I will have it soon.
Would it be possible for you to take time off work to come for a visit?
Yes I would can get it.
How is you today? I am fine and hope you are fine too. The weather today is good here. The air temperature is about +3C. It's more warm than yesterday and I am glad. Everytime when the weather is fine and warm I have a good mood, because we have warm weather not long time of a year. As you know I live on the north and our climate is cold almost all the time of a year. I think all people are glad here, when the weather is good and every man wants to enjoy every day of the good weather.
You know that our climate is not a last bad thing here. The ecology is not good too cause Norilsk is the one of russian industrial zones. Therefore we have a lot of giant factories here. They influence on our ecology and the nature around us. It's another reason why I want to leave this area and go to another region or maybe to another country. I just want that my children could be healthy. You know that I am very serious when I think about health at all and that’s why I’m trying to live healthy life. And I want it for my children and for my own future family too. I hope you will agree with me in my thoughts. What you think about it? Can you let me know about your thoughts of this situation? I am very interested to know your mind. I want to know your sight - how do you see your family at all? Maybe I express my thoughts not correctly but I mean what the family would like to have? I think the creation of the family is the one of the greatest steps in whole life of every man. What you think about it? Do you agree with me? I ask you this questions because it's very important for me. I hope you will understand me and will answer me very frankly. From my side I will let you know about my mind of this question. As I said the creation of the family is very important for me and I try to make it very seriously. I consider that the family is loving and taking care of each other, parents, a healthy life style, a good relations in family, the understanding and the trust in family and of course the children. Now you can see the family I dream. I will do all what I can to make my dream by reality. I know that I will give all my forces and my time for my husband, my family and my children. It's most important things for me in me life. That’s why all this days I thought about development of our relations and the cognition of each other. It's very important thing for me because I'm interesting in knowing you Carl! I know that the best way to know each other is a real meeting. I think you agree with me. Yesterday I’ve tried to listen to my heart and my mind about future. As you know I try to be open and I want to tell you about my thoughts. I hope you understand me. Carl, you are very interesting man for me and I want to meet you in real cause I feel that I begin to fall in love with you. I really want to come and meet you and speak about all things! Who knows maybe it's the destiny and we’ll develop our relations to another level. I think it's a real thing to meet each other and it's the right way. Because you know that I write to you for knowing more about you and I want to find the man who will love me with all your heart and who I will love also! Who knows maybe you could become such a man! I hope I don't frighten you, I'm not persuasive woman and if you don't want to meet me you may tell it to me but I hope you want our meeting. I think we’ll be very glad to meet each other face to face and to talk in real time! I know that if you want I could come to you! Is it great? I have asked today about things for coming into your country and it's real things, if you will agree for my coming - I will come. Please tell me Carl, have I to be going to come? Of course you could come here but our city have many defensive industry and you must get many permitting documents for coming here. I think the best way for meeting each other is my coming to you, what do you think? Please be open with me and tell me everything. If you will be glad to meet me in your city I will make an application for visa reception as soon as possible and I will get it. I have asked about this things today and there is no any problems because I'm honest and have never broke the law moreover I'm the medical worker and it will be more easy for me to come to your country. And you know that my school girlfriend Vera had left our country and now live in California, do you remember I have toldyou that? I’ll send you a picture of both of us. We are not communicating with her because we are not very close. But I know that everything is all right with her and she had found a good husband there. I know about it because I have saw her sister and she have said to me these things. And more I like to travel and I will be very glad to come to visit you Carl, to see your country and city, I will be very glad to hear your stories about this things and many many other things, I'm sure it will be very interesting for us!

Letter 3

Hi my love Carl!
Today is not warm here again, and I'm thinking of you Carl. It was a great day when I received the first letter from you. I thank the God and I know that I’ve found the man whose name is Carl and I love you!
Today I’ve found out up to the end all about opportunities come to you. I am pleased with an opportunity to meet you soon, and I want it very much. I think you want it too! Your letters were the ray of light in my life. As you know I was not very much interested in moving to other country but I’ll do it because I’ve found my love and it's you Carl!!! Today after my work I’ve gone to visas firm and they’ve told me that my visa is ready now! I was very glad because it was so fast! I’ve asked them to scan it and I send it to you today because I think it's the great news not only for me but for you also! But the firm makes not visas only, it reserves tickets also. I’ve decided to use their service again because they have a great reputation and respect in our city. They’ve told me that the roundtrip flight to New York City(Kennedy Airport) cost 1150 united states dollars. It was too expensive for me and I’ve asked them to find the cheapest variant. And they’ve offered. It would be on the 12 June and cost 1040 usd. I was wondered if it was possible to reserve a ticket and to pay for it a part of the money this time and the other part later because other people can buy the cheap ticket and I'm not. But they’ve refused and I was in despair! I’ve asked them to help me so long time that tears have come to my eyes! And they’ve agreed! I’ve wasted all my money, but it wasn't enough. So I’ve gone to pawnshop and pawned silver and gold jewelry which I had. I’ve got $110 and that was enough for an initial payment. I have paid $140 today for it and it was my last money. The number of the flight and the ticket information I resevered:
I need ticket now Carl because I’ve prepared documents and the visa. I’ve asked about a ticket and I have information. If I'll buy the ticket from the company where I’ve payed for document visa it will be cost not much. If I'll buy the ticket and visa both it will be cost more cheaper than I can buy it in the other place. So I had the money for a visa and I’ve payed for it already and I have it! Everything is alright and I must pay now for a ticket. I don't have much money now. It is very difficult for me to tell you about it! But I’ve done everything I can. I’ve paid for a visa more than three hundreds of dollars. I have bought the ticket on the train to Moscow. I’ve paid a part of the ticket. But this money is not enough. I don't want to burden you. I want to reach you with my own money but unfortunately I have failed. Now I have to pay the remaining part. It is only 900 dollars. I must pay this money before 11 June, otherwise I will lose my money. If you love me, if you trust me and if you want to see me soon, please send the money for the ticket as soon as possible! I will be sure in meeting with you if I will have the ticket to you Carl! And I don't want that they’ll sell the cheap ticket to other people. I understand that it is a difficult decision for you, but we must trust each other. Any union without trust is impossible if it is a union of a wife and a husband or a union of a boy-friend and a girl-friend or a union of business partners! I don't want to be hypocritical! That's why I want to tell you following: I do not think that you would like to give the love to the woman who you don't trust, so as I am. It's a first check for us. And much depends upon it, may be everything. We must trust each other! That's why I was the first who made first step. Step to you. I confused that money plays a great role in a meeting of two people who love each other. So I need 900 dollars for the ticket, because I have some money and I've counted all. It's the best way to buy the ticket because it's cheaper if we will buy the ticket separately. I want to be with you Carl all my heart and I do all for it, you see! So I need your help and we'll be together!!!! You must always remember that I love you and trust you. Maybe it's our future and I see that our future will be very wonderful. We'll be together very soon, I must buy the ticket and I will be yours and you will be mine!!!!!! I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH, PLEASE DON'T FORGET IT!!!!!!!!! Of course if you don't want you can not help me. It is bad but not fatal. I will lose my money. IT WILL BE TOO BAD... I speak so because I am in despair and confusion. Now, when we are divided only with one step, I am afraid. I am afraid that you will not help, and all my diligence will be gone. I love you and I want to be with you and the word of honour, your help is necessary for me. I have not calculated my forces. But together we are much stronger. It is much easier to go through difficulties and barriers together. I want to present you all my infinite love and fidelity. I did not want to ask you. I thought, that I can make all itself. The loneliness has made me strong. I have got used to live without the help, and to rely only on myself. I very seldom address to somebody for the help, but now I ask you to help me. I have made a step forward. Make also you a step towards to me. I hope that has not offended you. I love you and I trust you. I know, that you will not throw me now when there is only one step.Tell me Carl, can you help me? If you have an opportunity please help me. I wonder how it is possible to do. I’ve asked my friends about helping me and they said that have not it at the present moment. I’ve asked the advice of my girlfriends Masha and Galina and they’ve said that maybe you Carl can help me because you love me. I’ve asked them how he can help me, because he is far from me. They’ve said that Carl can send the money through company which make this service. I’ve asked about it in the bank and I know now that reliable and fast company exists which makes remittances in the world and it's called money gram. I has remember that I saw advertising this company on tv. I’ve taken a directory book and found the address of it. It's not far from me. I’ve gone there and I’ve asked them about a service. They’ve said that a sender must go to the money gram branch, give them information: the name and last name of a receiver, a country where he makes a transfer and they give him the ten digits secret code to a sender. The receiver must know ten digits for a receiving money. They say that the branches of it must be everywhere all over the world. I have found out about there is an International Money Gram (by the way, they have a website, called www.moneygram.com). You can send me money using money gram according following data:
Russia, Rosbank Talnakhskaya, 56, Norilsk, 663318
For: Tatyana Timonina
I must tell them your full name, full address, exact amount and some confidential numbers (Money Transfer Control Number) which will be given to you, I love you very much! I think about you Carl all the time! I think about a sense of money, and I'm very sad if these papers can prevent people to meet each other. In most cases the money play a main role in the life but it's not right! I'm sure. And the quantity of money was, is and will not important to me. I have always not aspired to the material enrichment and don't search specially for rich man! I appreciate human qualities and relations and I love you Carl!!! I love you with all my heart, I want to be with you now... I want to be with you forever! If it's mutually we will be very happy in our life! I think you love me too and we will meet very soon. You are my love Carl. My heart is yours. I'm waiting good news from you, I hope everything will be all right and we will be together soon. Every day I think about our meeting, and I think it's real, we must use this chance of destiny. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!
Forever yours Tanya.
