Letter(s) from Yana Malets to Gavin (Australia)

Letter 1

Hello Gavin!

How are you doing there? I hope, you are fine and this letter finds you in high spirits. Today I have woken up with a wonderful feeling because of this opportunity to send you a letter, let me be sure that your mind is preoccupied with me and you feel the same.

I would like to tell a few words about me. My name is Yana, and I am 33 years old, but people say that I look much younger. I am rather pretty tall and slender brown-haired woman. I live in Ukraine, in Lutsk city. I am a charming woman, who is very gentle at heart. I have an easy temper, I am very sociable, and I easily find a common language with other people. Also I find myself being smart, cheerful and outgoing person. I give much attention to my shape and health, and I don’t smoke. I am serious and family – oriented. I am strong, but at the same time fragile woman, who needs very much male support and care. My dream is to create the family based on love, support and mutual understanding. Also, I would like to let you know, that faithfulness is very important for me.

There were a lot of reasons, which encouraged me to try Internet in order to find my destiny. Not so many time ago I was disappointed in love, and broke up relationships with a person, whom I loved and trusted. It made me feel unsafe and lonely, may be at that time I didn't suppose to make such a step as to find my future husband abroad, but I feel that life passes by, and I don't want to be lonely any more. Let's change this life together,I belive it's not so difficult as seems! Write me..

Actually, I have disappointed in our men, because they are not reliable, they are unfaithful and don't value family. That is why I decided to search for a husband abroad, and I am ready to leave my Motherland and move abroad, to the country of my husband and create there family with him. I am not afraid any difficulties and obstacles, I believe that everything will be ok, and soon my dream about a loving husband and family will come true. I know several women from Ukraine who married foreign men, and know that they are very happy now, their husbands love them very much and value them. I am not searching for the luxurious and rich life, its not the most important, because nothing can substitute for the love, tenderness, honesty and the happiness to have a good loving family.

I was married, but our union was not successful, because I was too young when I married. Some time later I understood, that I didn't know my husband at all. He occurred to be a man, who doesn't have any family values, and he was unfaithful to me. The last straw that broke our family was the accident when he became to drink very hard. I decided to brake our relations, as I thought I deserved good life and husband.

My demands to the man are not steep; I just need a reliable, careful and loving husband who can rate in a woman her tenderness, inner world and devotion to her husband. I see him a kind, funny, much – sided and family-oriented man. Are you this person?

Gavin, I hope that you recognized in me the woman you needed, the one whom you were searching for. I hope that in every our letter we will open in each other something interesting and new and will feel how our feelings to each other grow. Tell me what you think about me, I will be waiting for your letter.

Warm regards,

Dear Gavin,

I am very glad to receive your reply. It means that my first letter awoke your interest and it gives me a hope, that we could become friends so far, but I hope, that we will be more then friends soon. Thanks for telling me about yourself, and for now I feel that you are a very interesting and nice man. May be you are the one, whom I have been waiting for so long, whom I fail so much in my life…

I may guess that you want to learn more about me. As you know, I live in Ukraine, but I was born in Kazakhstan, in Balhash city. My mother is Kazakh woman, and father is Ukrainian. That’s why I am a little look like an Eastern woman, though I look like my father too. Since my birth till 12 years I lived in Kazakhstan. Then there occurred a great tragedy in my life. My mother perished in a car accident, and father decided to return to his motherland, Ukraine. In a year he married again and I felt that I was not wanted in his new family. Even now, when I recall my life with my step mother I feel pain. She was very cruel and crafty woman, but my father loved her so much, that he would kill me if she had asked him to do it. I was like a Cinderella, who did all the chore about the house, and who was constantly humiliated. In 15 I ran away from home to my granny and lived with her. She was very kind and caring woman, who loved me and gave me lots of warmth and care. Two years ago she passed away, and I still live in her flat.

I work as a librarian at the Pedagogical University. To tell the truth, it is not the work about which I had been dreaming. I wanted to become a math teacher, but I had no money to pay for my studying at the university. Actually I like my work, because I am on the best of terms with my colleagues.

As I already mentioned, I am divorced. In Ukraine it is really a great problem to find a good man, as most of them have an addiction to alcohol and they are violent to their wives. That’s why I decided to search for my future husband abroad, where men have family values and know how to treat a woman. I have lots of warmth and tenderness inside of me, and I want to give my love to the man, who would be worth of it. The age-difference is not a problem for me. From my experience I noticed, that elder men are wise, loving and calm, they know what they want from life and know how to treat a woman. In families where a man is older there are less quarrels between each other, while young me are selfish.

Nothing keeps me here, and when I find my beloved somewhere abroad, I will move to him. Yes, I am ready for this, and I think, that it doesn’t matter where to live, the main is to love and be loved, to live in harmony and happiness with your soul mate. So far I don’t speak English, and if you wonder why my letters are written in good English, I can answer you that translator translates them for me. I hope, you don’t think that my not knowing of English can be an obstacle for our relations. Language is possible to learn, but it’s so difficult to find your second half, a person, with whom you really could be happy. I know that together we could overcome all the hurdles and obstacles on the way to our happiness and will build relations, about which we were dreaming. I already see that we have lots of things in common and dream about our first meeting.

As for my hobbies, I am going in for sports, and I like to take care of my health. Twice a week I go to the gym, where I go to the swimming pool and shaping classes. I am a good swimmer and in summer I like to spend time near the sea or river, everywhere where there is water and it’s possible to swim. I like nature and I like to spend time outdoors; to go hiking, boating, walk in the wood or valley. Spring is my favorite season, I adore this season, when everything is in bloom and nature wakes up after a long sleep… By the way, I was born in spring, on the second of April. And my sign of the zodiac is Aries. The Aries are very passionate and devoted people, who suffer without affectionate and romantic feelings.

What is your favorite cuisine, dear? Have you ever tasted some Ukrainian dishes? As for me, I like healthy food, and Ukrainian cuisine is very healthy and tasty, I think. Also I adore Japanese cuisine, especially sushi. I like sweets, chocolate and cakes, though I eat them rather seldom, as it’s not good for shape.

My favorite food is strawberry and mango. Actually, I cook very tasty. It’s pity that I don’t have a family, whom I could please with my culinary masterpieces? In my spare time I like to watch romantic movies or comedies. I like calm soft music and retro music. My favorite singers are Sting, Melene Farmer, Celine Dion.

Day by day my desire to marry and have a good happy family grows, and I want to meet the man, who was doomed to me by my destiny. I believe that somewhere in this earth there is my soul mate, who is also lonely, and is waiting for me. If this person is you, I would be happy! I could be very caring and loving wife, I would make my husband the happiest man. I know how to treat a man, and I would satisfy him in everything. I am a one-man-woman, and faithfulness in relations is very important for me. Are you a one-woman-man? Would you be able to love only one woman till the end of your days? Do you believe that it’s possible to create relations for people from different countries? What was the reason that made you to search for your soul mate via Internet?

I will be waiting for your reply to my thoughts that I expressed in this letter. Tell me please, what is the relations, you are dreaming about? Does your vision of happy relations coincide with mine? If it’s not a secret, write me, please, about your last relations. And if you have any questions, you are welcome to ask. You planted a seed of interest to you in my heart, and I would like to hear from you again.

Warm regards,

Hello dear Gavin,

Thank you very much for your nice and interesting letter. You really planted a seed of interest to you in my heart, and I hope that soon we will be able to meet and feel that between us arise very romantic and affectionate feelings to each other. I am so happy that you are half around the world but still thinking about me. What can be more joyful than that? I feel that with each letter we are becoming closer to each other, and I really feel a deep connection between us. Even despite the fact that between us there are lots of miles.

I want to let you know that I really have serious intentions to find my soul mate and don’t play any games. I have a great desire to create my family, where would be mutual understanding, respect, tenderness to each other and affection. I can tell you how I imagine our life together, dear. I would like to be with you not only in happy moments, but also in hardships and difficulties. I would like to go through life together with you, to travel, to arrange romantic evenings only for us. I imagine how I am waiting for you in the evening, we have a romantic dinner together with the candle lights, to make you massage, so that all your troubles and stress disappear. You would purr like a cat, feeling relaxation and comfort with me. Do you like to cuddle, dear? Then I would like to take a bath or Jacuzzi with you, washing each other. Also, I like to walk under the stars with my beloved, holding hands and talking about something… Dear, I want to make all my dreams true and I want to make it with you.

I want to ask you, do you believe in destiny? I believe that every person has his soul mate in this world, but sometimes, it’s so difficult to find this person, who was doomed to you by fortune. And it’s great that there is such a thing like Internet, where people all over the world can get acquainted and between them can arise romantic feelings. We live in such a world, where lots of things can be considered as obscene and indecent. For example, many people suffer from shyness and for them it’s rather difficult to get acquainted with a man / woman in the street. But in the Internet people can clearly express what they want and which person they are searching for. They can discuss any topics and finally meet in person, and it’s so great when two lonely people find each other… Also, our life is so hectic, that people just have no time to go to some place where they can meet someone.

You know, we've been writing to each other but it seems to me that we were not writing letters, we were actually talking and discussing different things and found out each other's opinion. I really have a feeling that I even heard your voice and you talking to me. When I read your letter I always imagine how you write it or even say something out loud and then write it, or how you read my letter and think what to answer. I imagine how you smile when you see my letter in your e-mail box. I really hope you smile at that moment...

I hope you are having a nice day there. I am waiting for your letter and your pictures impatiently.

Wish you all the best.


Letter 4

Hello my dear Gavin,

I am so happy to get your letter. How are you doing? I have been thinking of you so much lately. I cannot get you out of my mind. And I like it very much. You have changed this world for me with your presence, and some things don't look the same they have looked before.

You know, even if we are not together now, I feel, that between us there is a deep connection. And later, when we will live together, we will keep our romance and affection to each other as we do now. I thank for God since I found you. You came into my life when everything seemed so dark but you provided the light to find my way. You have totally changed my outlook in life and I thank you for that. I feel as if I'm walking over clouds just thinking about you. You make my life complete. Today, I promise you that I would do anything in my power to make you a great person, be outstanding wife and loving mother. I hope our relation will get closer and stronger. And I wish you will be my future husband. I was tired to be alone, but I didn't think that the Internet can bring to me luck, but it gave me a change to go on-line to search for my life partner, and I was lucky to meet you.

I'm a romantic person. I like to hold hands, I love walk on the beach, go to watch sun rise and sun set. I want to make for my beloved man a dinner with candle, rose, champagne, and romantic music. And there are many romantic things I want to do for you, too. I want you to be happy with care, and enjoy the fun life. It is the truth, my sweetheart. I will never let you go and we will stay together for ever. I'm sure that you will do anything for me too. I want to cuddle with you when we are together. I want to share my life with you.. spend time with you going together to the beach, cinema, amusement park... I want to be doing all sort of things with you... Because I believe that with you I'll be Okay everywhere. I would feel so happy just being with you this way. I want to share as many moments with you as I can in this lifetime. Life is very short and I want us to enjoy every minute and second we have together.

Today in the morning I woke up with the only thought insight me - you and your letters. Have you missed me? How did you spent this day? I beg you pardon for such abnormal interest, but you live deep in my soul, dreams, feelings. And I want that you stay in my life forever. I want to meet with you in person, to see that man, who captured my heart and soul. Letters are not enough for me, and I want you in real life. I want to leave this country, where I am lonely and don't feel comfortable. Letters for me is just a way to meet each other, and to learn each other better, but I am ready to move to you and be with you forever.

With love,
