Letter 2
Hi, my new friend!
Maybe you will no believe me but I’m really happy that since just a few days I have been having such a friend as you! And its really great that you have chosen me among a lot of other girls! Send me some photos please!
Anyway I think that we have to get to know each other better step by step and in this letter I will try to tell you a lot of information about myself in order you could understand which type of woman I am. I hope you will like me!
So as you already know my name is Lera. I live in a small city Vinnitsa that’s in the west of Ukraine. It’s an industrial city with a lot of plants. I’m 24 and I truly believe that being in this age each woman has to have a husband and a family but unfortunately I have not met a man of my life yet. I hope that maybe it will happen soon. Anyway I really believe in it! To tell you the truth I want to have a family and children, it’s my dream but I want to build relations only with a reliable and honest man. I’m fed up with men in my country which don’t respect women and don’t want to earn money and to provide their families with all the necessary. Life here is very hard and it’s almost impossible for a single woman to survive without a man’s help. People have very small salaries here but of course my parents are helping me a little and I’m very thankful to them! It a shame but I don’t know how I would live without their help. My parents are simple people who are working hard. My father’s name is Oleg and he is a builder. My mother’s name is Olya and she is a teacher of English at school. I live in my parents’ house. Of course I would like to live alone but it’s too expensive for me to rent even a small flat. I don’t have any brothers or sisters but to be honest with you I have been always dreaming about a younger sister! I think it was just a childish dream! I was dreaming about wearing her in small bright colored dresses and making something with her hair like if she was a little pretty doll:-)
Now I’m working as a manager in a perfume store. And I really like my job though I’m not earning a lot of money. Besides I was studying English at school so now I don’t have any problems to talk to you and to understand you! I also have a few hobbies such as music and knitting. I have an old piano in my parents’ house and sometimes I’m playing Bah or Beethoven. It really makes me feel calm and this way I’m avoiding some kind of depression. I prefer knitting in winter; it makes me feel cosy during cold and windy evenings… I’m knitting sweaters and socks for my parents and sometimes for myself. As for music mostly I prefer classical but sometimes I’m listening also for pop singers such as Jenifer Lopez, Nelly Furtado and Shakira. By the way I love animals and I have a little pet. It’s a cat and its name is Sonya. Do you have any pets? You know, as for food I prefer some Ukrainian dishes, it’s a shame but I didn’t taste any other kitchen except of Ukrainian.
I also like reading. Especially I like such writers as Tolstoy, Pushkin and Lermontov. And what about you? You know, as each woman I like flowers, orchids are my favorites! I love sea and sunset! As for clothes I prefer dresses or jeans and T-shirts. I’m very romantic woman and I would prepare romantic dinners for my beloved man! I would treat like a king and I would make him the happiest man in the whole world! I don’t demand a lot from my man, I just want him to be sincere and honest with me. These are the main qualities I value in men. I want him to be reliable and responsible; I want him to answer for each his word and not to lie. I hate lie and I would never deceive a man I love. I want my beloved to be the same. I’m too tired of games and pretending…I don’t care his age and his appearance; I value his inner world and his nature. I believe that a real and sincere love doesn’t have any boundaries and limitations and it’s really true. Love is like a miracle and we have to deserve it.
You know, I have never been abroad and one day I would like to make my dream come true! I think it would be like a fairy tale for me and I’m ready for it! If I met my beloved somewhere abroad of course I would move to his country. I think it’s naturally for woman to live in her beloved’s place and to become a part of his life! Are you agree with me?
OK, I think its enough for today, I don want you to get bored with me!
I would also like to know you better. Tell me about your dreams and your hobbies, your likes and dislikes, a woman you’re dreaming about!
I’m eager to receive your answer, kisses, Lera!
Letter 3
My dear, you can’t even imagine how happy I am to receive your new e-mail!
Why no photos again? I'd love to see them!
You know, the weather here is nice and sunny today, the sky is blue, it’s a real spring already! But the Internet cafe is in about 30 minutes from my home by bus but I was so eager to know if you wrote me something so I decided to go there. And I’m glad that I followed a voice of my intuition ‘cause now I’m reading and answering your letter! My life is becoming more interesting and bright when I hear from you! It’s always so exciting! I want to become more than just friends with you, I want to build strong and beautiful relations based on feelings and trust. I’m too tired of being lonely and I want to love and to be loved! Do you want it? I think that each person in the world want to be loved ‘cause it gives warmness and confidence in the next day. You always know that a person you love has trust in you and can comfort you when you really need it.
Unfortunately I have not found my true love in my country, that’s why I’m here in the Internet.
And I would really like to know you better and to become close to you. I want to become a part of your world, to become your soulmate if you also want it, my dear. I want to share with you my feelings and you’re also welcome to share with me your dreams and hopes.
I have already told you that in my opinion trust and confidence are very important in relations and that’s why I want to ask you to give me your phone number. I want to have a possibility to hear your voice when I want!
Anyway I wish you a good day and I will be impatiently waiting for your next letter! Its always a pleasure for me to hear from you, my dear! Bye-bye, many kisses, Lera!
Letter 4

My honey love!
How are your days? Do you enjoy your life? As for me I’m not because you are not by my side…You know, I’m dreaming about us together every night…I imagine us dancing in the moonlight and kissing… I imagine kissing your soft lips and your hands around my waist…
My honey, I thought maybe I could come to you for a visit? What do you think?
I’m very serious with you and I hope you have the same feelings to me, my sweet.
Its very important for me to see your place, the way you live and of course to meet your friends. Maybe we will be happy together and I will decide to stay, who knows? I have to get used to your country, to your traditions and other things.
Even to food which is also very important! Are you agree with me, my darling?
I want to look into your eyes and to understand what you feel towards me and to feel if you really want to be with me and desire me. Its possible only in reality and I truly hope that you would like me to visit you, my dear.
I wanna tell you that I’ve been looking for love for a long time. And I’ve found it.
But he is so far from me that I don’t know how I can deal with it.
I wanna look in your eyes and to be drowned there. But it’s impossible ‘cause you’re so far from me.
I like milk chocolate, I adore fresh strawberry and I like detective stories but you’re the one I like most! So I suppose that formula of yours is chocolate + strawberry + a bit of mystery...
Maybe you consider me crazy, ridiculous or just funny but I think this way! You’re my sunshine in the rainy day and you’re my medicine from the boredom.You know, sometimes I look at the globe that’s on my table then I understand how many miles I need to overcome to be with you... How many times I told myself that its impossible!
But I still believe, I can’t stop to believe... cause recently I understand that you’re the only one within my heart.
I'm missing you a lot and I'm waiting for your answer with great impatience, kisses, yours Lera.

I will be waiting for your call with great impatience!
I'm so excited and happy that you want me to come to you!
I have told my parents about us and they are also glad that we have found each other and want to met in reality! My father told me that as I'm new in travelling its better for me to visit a travel agency and to find all the information I need there and then I will let you know everything, OK?
I love you with all my heart, with all my soul and I am yours!
My heart, my mind and my body belongs to you! I do not want to live without you and I am counting the days till the happiest moment when I will see you in the airport! We will live together and every morning I will wake you up with a pleasant smell of a hot tea with delicious breakfast!
I do not want to live with hopes only, it makes me sad that I have to wait, my darling...
I think that I will kill you with my kisses and hugs when I see you, but I think these would be a pleasant death! ))
Yours and only yours Lera!
Letter 6
Hi, my honey,
thank you very much for your answer, I'm very happy that you're ready to have me in your place, I would be very happy to see you and to come to you, my honey. It would be just great!
You know, today morning I was in a travel agency and they told me that the best and safest say for me to travel to you is to buy a tour there and in this case there will be no problems with a visa and something like that.
The manager told me that it would be a hot tour so it would be much cheaper than an usual tour.
The price consists of a passport which will cost me 230 Euro and it will take me 1 week to make it, a tourist visa which will cost me 45 Euro an it will take me 3 days to make it, an insurance which costs 50 Euro and the tickets which are 530 Euro. And I also asked them if you can send me the tickets but they told that in this case I will not be able to get a visa because in order to get a tourist visa I have to buy the whole trip in the travel agency and the tickets are included in it. My honey, I must confess that its very high price for me and I cant afford to pay for this tour, even my relatives cant help me with it. And I cant take a loan 'cause I have to small salary for it, a bank will not give me it. I'm very ashamed to ask you for help but I just have no other choice to be together with you. I'm sure that we will be the happiest couple in the world!
My dear, I would be very grateful to you for your help and I hope that we will be together very soon!
I will be waiting for your reply with great impatience, kiss you, only yours Lera.
Letter 7
Hi, my sweety,
thanks a lot for your reply, my honey!
I'm happy because I feel we will be together very very soon! Honey, my parents told me that you can use Western Union or Money Gram service in order to send me the money for the trip.
Its very safe and quickly and in this case I will receive the money almost immediately and will book my trip quickly. You will also need my full name and address in order to make a transfer:
Ukraine, Vinnitsa, Sverdlova str., 170, post code is 21000, Valeriya Davidenko.
I kiss you passionately and cant wait to be with you! Only yours Lera.
