Hello Keith,
How are you today and how was work over there? i hope your fine and all is well, thanks for telling me more about yourself and i guess you had a wonderful day, its really nice getting to know more about you and it makes me feel we have alot in common, i wouldnt mind getting to meet you physically very soon as you sound fun to be with just like what i have been seeking for all my life.i really hope it works out between both of us so i could settle down and have a peace of mind.and i consider myself also romantic. I would really love to get to know you physically.
Well i just want somebody who can support me and stand behind me, but also let me stand behind them and support them. Somebody who can be in the kitchen with me while we are cooking and have a good time. Somebody who I can make smile with the little things. Somebody who is not going to get mad at me for goofing off and having a good time with them. I just want somebody who is in it for the long haul.That person that even just by taking your hand as you are walking, makes you feel warm all over and an instant smile come to your face. Someone i can wake up in the mornings and just watch as he sleeps. Waiting for him to open his eyes so i can tell him how special he is to me. So I'm not sure I am that woman for you, but the fact is that we are both looking for the same qualities in that special someone gives us a good start. I really look forward to talking to you again and getting to know you much better Like you family and marriage is very important to me.To tell you more about my family like i told you in my first mail my parent pass away Mom died 2years ago in an auto accident in Mexico but my Dad, i did't get to know him much because he was killed a year after i was born my mom use to tell me all about him and i wish i he could be alive by now i know he will care and love me. I hope I haven't bored you with this. If there is anything else you want to know just as.
Bye and i hope you have a wonderful day and also take very good care of yourself until i hear back from you.

Hello Keith
It me again....Well i got all your mails and i must tell you they were really lovely and inspiring, i guess we are both searching for the same kind of person but i dont think am good enough to be urs cause you really sounded sincere, honest and fun to be with and because i spent my week crying.
But just like you've been sincere and honest to me i really have to be, cause i know that after reading this mail i might not get an e-mail of your reply and it would be so sad. because a friend of mine onced said all men are the same they only want to share the good time and not the bad time,i hope your not like them. well i didnt tell you all that happend between i and my ex-fiance,thinking there was no need cause by this time i would be back to and start a new life possible with someone like you,but by the yesterday after i had packed all my loads to leave, the hotel manager ended up seizing my international passport and return ticket and now am stuck in the hotel where i logded with my ex fiance.
I am sorry for not telling you this ealier...i want you to know that i really dont want to break your heart but i have to tell you all what happened,i know you'll be confused by now. well it all started when i met Steven my ex fiance,we both became friends and soon after a while we became lovers for a year and half until he proposed to me and asked for my hands in marriage which i stupidly accepted because i had fallen deeply in love with the bastard because he kept on lying to me telling me how he loved me,wanted me to have his babies for him and that we both grow old together.i just dont know how i could fall for all that crap.well soon after i agreed the wedding plans began and we were to get married in July this year until he came and told me one day that he received a phone call from his family back home telling him that they wanted to meet me and know more about the lady their son was about marrying,that's how he got me because i fell for it and decided to meet his family and see where he grew up and secondly see the wild life in his country. and so we both went to his country because his not from UK but an african, when we got to his country instead of him taking me directly to his family house he took me to an hotel where we logded and that was where the crazy bastard took advantage over me,well i didnt know that i was about been married to a theif who was about robbing me which he eventually did. would you believe it the bastard brought me to africa only to rob me off my money and jewelries i brought over to Nigeria, i even reported him to the police over there and they promised me not to worry that they would fine him in no time and uptill now they've not said anything positive about finding him,
Now i was surpose to return back to UK on Monday and start all over again but the hotel manager just seized my passport ands return ticket and that's why i spent all day crying and now am very sad and not too feeling fine.i really would have loved to tell you more about myself and things i do for fun but i cant and am sorry i know i wouldnt hear from you again and it would really be sad but i had to tell you the truth i just need someone right now to make me happy.Well you could call the hotel and ask of miss Vanesa Ricardo, Room 043 or the white woman upstairs and i would be on to you,and maybe we could talk better on phone,i get to hear how your voice sounds like and you get to know how my voice sounds like, that's if your still intrested in me after all.
Bye and take care and also have a lovely week,i hope to hear from you..soonest or you could visit the hotel website the hotel phone number is +2348060708006 i dont know if its neccesary to use the plus sign or without but please try it either way. you could also speak to the hotel manager if you want his e-mail address is or and the phone number above his name is mr Obinna
