Letter 2

Hi Sam,
Forgive to me, I to not write to you earlier. I was in hospital. Because had FLU, and I could not answer you. We have met on If you do not remember me I write to you the last letter. I have attached it below my present letter. Now I shall try to tell more about myself. I saw your add and should say you are a very interesting and attractive man. I wish I could have a chance to get to know you. Hope you will give me this chance and will write me more about yourself. And now I will give you an idea of who I am. My name is Galina. I am 28 y.o. I live in Russia, in city Kurgan. It on a southern part of the central Russia, if you want to see it on a map. My weigh is 58(120f.) kg. My height is 167(5.5f.) centimeters. I think you will have a better idea of me looking at my picture I am attaching to this letter. I have never been married and have no children. I am slim and in a good shape. I am fond of jogging to keep fit. You see I live in the surburb of city. So it is very convenient for me to do it in the morning or in the evening. I enjoy the fresh air and the nature around me and at the same time keep my body fit. I work in the restaurant every second day as a waitress and have to go to the city. I have to earn for my living as I have nobody to take care of me. I have to survive in this big and cruel world myself. I lost my parents in a car accident. I don’t like to talk about this as it still hurts me very much. I can say that I have many interests and I enjoy life as it is. I always try to find something good even in bad situation. I just love this life and want to live a complete full life. The only thing I really miss in my life now is a close person. A person who will allow me to lay my head on his shoulder and to tell him everything what is inside of me, in my soul. I want to love and to be loved. I want to take care of my beloved person and devote all of myself to him. To see his smile and be happy just because of it, to love everything in him. Just to love his as he is with all his advantages and disadvantages. We are not ideal and we are interesting because we have disadvantages which make us differ from each other. I have attached to you the pic, I hope, I shall like to you. It is made in the last summer, but I have not changed. I now look as on a photo!! Just now I have little bit other hairdress. Now my hair straight lines. I love me hairdresses. I do not love monotony. I think, it is pleasant to you. / I think I should close here. I use an internet cafe as I don’t have my personal computer and phone at home. Please, don’t worry if you don’t get a letter from me. I will write you in a day as I have to go to the city to write you. Will be waiting impatiently for your reply. Galina.
P.S. I shall wait your answer 2 days.... Write to me you want whether or not with me to have relations? For the beginning as the friend...I have 2 email adrress. You can write on any: or
My leter have sent to you:
>Hi!!! I even don’t know what to start with as it is the first time I ever do this. I am sure that others would write many good things about themselves. I am not going to do this. The time will show who I am and you will get a good idea if we start and continue our correspondence. I just want to tell you that I really liked what I have seen and read about you. I think you are just an amazing person. And I wish you could give me a chance to get to know you better. Perhaps, I should tell you some words about myself. I am 28 years old. I have a higher education but do not work on my specialty. I have really many interests. I am fond of reading ( most of all I like Russian classical Literature ). Music – it usually depends on my mood, but listen to everything from pop to classical music. And there are really many other things which interest me but I will tell you about it in my next letters if you want me to. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you anything about my family. And I am very sorry to say that my parents dies in a car accident. I don’t like to talk about this. Perhaps, one day…when we luckily become close people. And my biggest dream is to have my own family, to feel complete. My husband will always be on the first place for me and I will do my best to make him the happiest in the world. I will give him all my care, my love and tenderness. You know, I am a very family oriented person. I like to have a cosy home, I am very good at cooking, I like to spend evening at home and just enjoy the company of my beloved people. Also I would like us to go to many different places and to share impressions. I don’t want to be lonely any more. And perhaps, you are also tired from loneliness. So we can try to get to know each other and see if we could be those two halves in one whole. Feel free to ask me any questions you have. I will answer them with pleasure. I am looking forward to your reply. Have a good day!!!!!
Letter 3

Hi, dear Sam!!!
I am so happy to get a reply from you. Your letter captured me and forgot about the time reading it. You can name me Galya or Lina. This my short name. You can name me as it is pleasant to you... So veryone name me. I didn’t have a goal to find someone abroad. I just came to the internet cafe to find some necessary information and saw you. And I decided why not to try? Perhaps that is a chance for both of us? I can’t say that all men in Russia are bad. There are good and bad people in any nation. But most of Russian men are very spoilit with women. And they don’t care about our feelings. Sometimes they are very rude and the main problem here is that they drink too much alcohol. And I dream to find a caring, tender and understanding man. And at this moment in my life I have to take care of myself alone. I work as a waitress to survive. Though I am a teacher in a primary school by profession, I have to work in the restaurant. It is hard to find a job on the profession and even if I have one, I will have a very small salary. I worked for some time as a teacher in the local school. But my salary was so small that I even couldn’t pay my bills. But in spite of it, I enjoyed my work. I like to work with the children. They bring joy and happiness into our life. I speak English rather well as I have been studied in the Institute for 5 years.. I would like to ask you. Why do you look for a woman? I think you are a person with a big heart and open soul and you shouldn’t have problems with it in your country. Well, I hope to hear from you very soon. Please answer my letters during 2 days if it is not difficult for you. I shall write to you in a day,
P.S. I will try to send you my pictures with each letter if there are no problems with the scanner in the internet cafe.
Letter 4

Hi, my dear Sam,
That is such a pleasure to get letters from you. You just can’t imagine what I feel when I see that there is a message from you. It is always so nice to get more and more about you. My birthday on November, 1st. Unfortunately when my mother gave me a birth she had a surgery. So she could not have children any more. I am the only child and I do not have sisters or brothers. Internet is a very good invention. It gives an opportunity to meet your soulmate even being on a distance. I would like so much to meet with you in real, to see your eyes and to sink in them, to feel your warm touch... Well, this is a dream, a very sweet dream. Perhaps, I could come to your place one day... Who knows what life prepares for us. I am not the kind of person who likes to waste time. I never feel bored and you will be able to feel this with me one day. I want every day to be a celebration. I know that life is difficult and that’s just impossible. But my beloved man will feel that every day for him is a holiday. I will do my best for it. I am fond of cooking and you know, I am rather good at it. I will cook something tasty for you one day if we meet and we will enjoy our time together. As for my other interests, I am fond of reading, watching movie ( I prefer comedies and love stories ), music ( I like country music very much and also some pop singers like Madonna ). I like to meet my friends and spend time with them or go somewhere to the countryside. I wish you could experience this with me. I am a very active and energetic person. And I like red color very much, that is a color of passion and love. Tell me, please, about your likes and dislikes. Today I have attached a photo of 2003. It is day of wedding of my friend Lena. Then I carried little bit other hairdress. You have paid attention? I like to change the image. To what I to you like more? With dark or light hair? I will be waiting forward to your letter. Have a good time.
Letter 5

Hi, sunshine Sam!!!
That is such a happiness to see a letter from you. I realized that I was smiling when I noticed how people in the Internet Cafe looked at me. Internet Cafe here is just a place where different people who don’t have their personal computers come to find some information or to write a letter as it is in my case. They just pay money and feel free to use computers as long as they want. It is so easy for me to write you like I have known you for ages. I can tell you everything and have a feeling that I can trust you. Though I am rather picky about people and it is not easy for me to trust. I feel that I can do it with you. I can be sincere and open with you like I am. I hate lies and when people are dishonest. I would like to ask you what you think about treachery. In my opinion that is awful and it hurts so much to know that a close person lied to you. I will never hurt anyone like this. And hope to get the same in return.. I don’t have a phone unfortunately, but I will try to find some way for us to talk. Would you like to get to know a little about my city. It is very cosy and green. We have beautiful parks here and flowers are blossoming in spring. It is so romantic to walk there when the stars are shining and when your beloved person is together with you. Are you a romantic person? Do you like animals? As for me I just adore dogs. They are very faithful and give you their love without any conditions. Today I have attached a photo where I sing a karaoke. To like you it? You like to sing a karaoke? Well, I will close here for now and will be waiting for your next letter impatiently. Have a wonderful day! Galina.
P.S. You know I would like to send you a handwritten letter and some surprise. Hope you don’t mind? That’s why I need your mail address. Please, send it to me next time. Ok? Here is my address if you would like to do the same. Do not send me perfume and flowers. Because I have an allergy on pungent smells. If you will send it to me, I shall hurt much. But please do not send me expensive things, Russian mail is unreliable also it can not reach me! Address: Galina Yudicheva, Nevskogo str.-4, apt.-6, Kurgan, 640014, Russia.
Letter 6

Hi, my sunhine Sam!!!
You are the ray of light in my life. I got up and had a happy smile on my face. I was thinking of you!!! I have one request for you. Can y ou send me some favourite pictures of yours? I would print them and hang on my wall to see you every time I get up and go to bed.. Thanks for a photo!!! I have no native! I the orphan!!! I live one. 1 dollar is equal 28 Russian roubles. Today I have attached a photo which has been made in the past to year. It is made about a gate in our beautiful park. I like to walk there. I had a wonderful dream last night. We were there together with you. It was a beach somewhere on a beautiful island. There were only two of us. Just you and me. We even didn’t talk. We were holding our hands enjoying the calmness of the moment. That was great. We were so close to each other. I was the happiest woman in the word as the man of my dream was with me. That was a wonderful feeling and I still feel that passion and love I had inside of me. Do you have any fantasies or dreams? You can tell me if it is not a secret. I have a feeling that you are the one I can create a strong and happy family with. Would you like to have children? I think this will be a mutual decision. My husband will always be on the first place for me. And if he doesn’t want to have children. Well, I will do whatever he wants. Take care, dear and write me your thoughts.
Letter 7

Hi, dear Sam!!!
Thank you so much for your letter!!!!!!!!!!!! I was in a low spirit today. I feel tired. I work for 9 and more hours a day. And I have to be patient with our clients which is not easy always as they can act in a very rude manner. I get for about 64 dollars a month( if to convert roubles in dollars ). Paying all the bills I have very little money left that’s why I am not able to buy my own computer. And I can’t write you letters very often as I have to pay for every letter I get and send. Sorry for complaining, dear. Hope you ynderstand me. Sorry but I can not chat with you online because it is very expensive service here in internet cafe… I am really fond of cooking. Russian cuisine is great and there are many dishes there!!!!! Pel'meni, borsh are very tasty. You should try it. Hope that one day I will cook something for you, don’t you mind? Your letter uplifted my spirits. I feel much better now after reading it. Can you tell me more about your country. I am interested in everything what is connected with you. I feel so vulnerable here and even miserable sometimes. People are so cruel and rude. And I am so glad that I have you in my life. You are so smart and understanding. I want to say thank you! Just for being my friend and being in my life. I have not attached for you a photo because I go from work and I have no with myself a photo. I shall send you next time. I promise.
Miss you...
Letter 8

My sunshine Sam!!!
I sorry, that I have not answered you earlier. I could not make it because Internet cafe did not work. It has been closed on repair. I hope, you forgive to me it? And we shall develop our attitudes. Now all works, and I shall write to you in a day as was earlier. Therefore answer me when receive this letter. First I want to apologize for my letter yesterday. I shouldn’t complain to you. But you are such a dear person to me and I feel that you understand me. In any way, I will not do it any more not to bother you. Your letters became part of my life and I appreciate so much your support. It is not so easy for me to trust anyone. Once I was betrayed with a very close person and it hurted me so much. I was in love but he cheated to me and left me for another woman. It was so painful. But it is already in the past. And we should live with the present. Especially now when we have each other. Though we have only letters but I hope that you can trust me. We already know each other though only through the letters. And I like so much what I see and know. You are a great person and you are the best what I have in my life now. And I feel that I can trust you and hope you will not lie to me... 2 days ago I have made a new hairdress to myself. I hope it to you to like. I have attached a photo of it. It is a photo it is made yesterday. You know, I often imagine us together holding hands, doing some things together. And I think that it is already the time when we can think about meeting. I could come to you to be with you and to see what it is like to live in your country. That is a very serious step. And getting visa for me will take some time. Life is short to waste time. And if you want me, I could come for 10 0r 15 days. But it depends on you. I could Stay for longer if you want. If it frightens you, I shall arrive only as the visitor!!! That is a chance for both of us. And I think we should use it. If you like this idea, we can talk about it seriously.
Thinking about you...
Letter 9

My dear Sam,
I love your photos!! I have been thinking about you the whole night and morning today. I was not able to sleep. I have so many thoughts about you and us in my head that it drives me crazy. I can’t recognize myself and it seems to me so unreal. But I feel it, really feel it inside. I can’t live without your letters. Every day is like torture for me when I can’t read a letter from you. I want to be with you, I want to feel you with every part of my body. I want to kiss your lips, your eyes, your hands. I want to make love to you, I want to be with you when you are sad and happy. I want to hold your hand when we sleep. I want to cook breakfast for you, to spend weekends with you, to wait for the time when you come from work. I want to have family with you. I want to have “US”. To be one whole. What is it? I think I LOVE YOU!!! Please, don’t be scared with my feelings. I just can’t pretend. I love you and I want you to know it. My love is so big that it is enough for two of us. I want you to love me so much. I even feel physical pain as I want to be with you now so much. I wish to get into the plane right now and to appear into your hands... I have attached 2 photos. These are ****** photos. I have made it on Saturday for you. I asked for this friend Tanya. I hope, I have not frightened you of it??? I only wished to show you, that I have a beautiful body!! I hope, you will not think of me badly after that??? I have a little hidden the person on these a photo. I am afraid, that it can fall into in other hands, not to you. And everyone will look at this. I have only one request - do not ask me to send you such photos more. I got to know, dear, that I would be able to get a tourist visa to come to you. That is just a matter of time. I will have to do some paperwork to get visa, to pay for it and to buy air tickets. I will do all the paperwork without problems. The onlything that worries me is money. You know that my salary is not big. And I hope you will be able to help me. I hope so much for your understanding. Please, let me know what you think about this. Love you, love you, love you... And so awfully miss you!!!
Letter 10

Dear Sam,
Perhaps that was not right from my side to be so sincere with you. But I don’t want us to have any secrets from each other. We shouldn’t hide our feelings. I understand it is difficult to believe in this. But this happened and I can’t change anything. I like this feeling and I want you to feel it also. I know some people who have found each other through the Internet and they are very happy now and they have their own families. This is what I also want. If we also want to be happy we should make some attempts. I could come to you at any time and spend with you for about a month ( or stay forever if it is in our destiny ). If it doesn’t work for us I will go back home. Of course, I can’t do everything alone and I need your help also. We should decide it together. Please, let me know what you think about it. I went to the tourist agency and they gave me all the information about visa. And also they told me how much I should pay. It will cost 196 dollars. It is the cost for the passport for going abroad, for the medical exam and for all the paperwork. But I need your help, sweetheart. Hope you can do this for us, for our possible family. At the agency they told me that the best way to send money is Western Union or Money gram. I visited the local office of WU and they gave me this information: Money transfer: 196 dollars. Money amount should be send in words or figures. You should write the full name of the receiver and receiver's full address. You will need my full name for this: Galina Yudicheva. I need the full name of the sender and full address ( I will need it ). It is also necessary to know MTCN ( Money Transfer Control Number ), it consists from 10 digits and Expected amount. Dear, I hope we will be able to manage with all this. Be sure, I will do everything for us. Hope to hear you very soon.
Miss you.
P.S. You can send money to any Western Union of my city. or
Letter 11

My darling Sam,
This is not the most pleasant thing to talk about. But I have to. I understand and listen to you. But you should also try to understand me. I do everything what depends on me. Perhaps, you know that many people want to leave Russiaand all of them need to get visa. And if I don’t pay nobody will look and pay attention to me at the Embassy. All the paperwork will be done rather quickly but only when I pay for visa. That is the only problem I have at the moment. And I need to pay for visa in some days. If we don’t, we could forget about my coming to you as the time will pass. I want to see you so much and I hope you can understand me... I cannot answer all your questions in the last letter. I have limited time in Internet cafe. And on many questions which you have asked, I already wrote the answer!!! Read my letters more closely!!! I am able to get visa for 1 week. It will be very fast!!! And it will be valid 3 months. I would arrive to your place as soon as I get visa!!! Or we can do it in the way which is more convenient for you. But you should understand that I ask you for money as I have a very good chance now to get visa without any problems. In other case I willl be not able to get it for long time. And we will not meet with you then. You cansend money to any bank in my city. The main thing I should know is MTCN ( digital number ). We should hurry up with this. As it is necessary to start the process as soon as possible. I will do all I can and in a best way. Now everything depends on you. I have met you. I love you and I don’t want to lose you now. I just can’t... Please, listen to me. That’s shame for me and I feel so confused to ask you this. But you are the only person I can ask for this. You know that I have nobody in my life except you. My sweetheart, please, do something. You know how I appreciate you and I need your help very much. I do it for you, for US, for our future Relation with you!!!! You are the only hope I have. I will understand everything and will try to overcome it but in this case we will lose the agency we have now. I love you and I hope so much for your understanding.
Wait for your reply.
Galina. or
Letter 12

My darling Sam,
Usually I write to you letters in the evening. In my city there is an airport. It is a problem to find someone with the phone. It is very expensive and luxury so not everyone can afford to have it. So I still cannot find the way for us to talk. I am sorry. I don’t want you to come here. It will be very difficult for you to come to Russia. It is rather dangerous here especially because I live in Siberia. They have never seen foreigners and I am afraid for you. It will be better if I first come to you. And then we can go to Russia together. I will be your guide. And I will show you many interesting places. When I come to you, we can make everything necessary for you to come to Russia and will go there together. Please, trust me. And I need to pay for visa or Iwill not get it. It is rather difficult to get visa into your country. And we shouldn’t miss the chance we have as now I can get visa without problems. And later it will be even more difficult. Please, understand me! I am able to get visa for 1, 2 or 3 months. This depends on the Embassy. This time is enough for us to get to each other better. I want to come to you not to marry you but you get closer and to see if we match each other. But if I don’t pay for visa now, I will never get it then. I will come to you as soon as I get my visa. Or at any other time which is convenient for you. You should understand that I ask for money now as I have a chance to get visa without a problem. Now I have only a week, or to me will give up in reception of the visa! And later I could not get it. And in this case, we will not be able to meet. That was a wonderful dream. It was so colorful and bright. I fell asleep yesterday thinking about you, with a smile on my face. And you were there in my dream. I was the happiest woman in the world as you were with me, the man whom I love so dearly. We were in a beautiful place. I think I can call it paradise. You were holding me and I was kissing you softly and then faster and faster. I was kissing your eyes, your neck, your arms, every part of your body. Your skin was so tender and manly at the same time. You put away my clothes and I felt your skin with my ***** body... It was such a feeling which I can’t express with the words. It is getting so hard for me to wait for the time when I see you at last, when I am able to touch you in real and to feel that intimacy. I get so excited and that is your fault, honey.
Miss you so badly
P.S. I go from work. I have forgotten to take with myself a photo for you. I shall send the next photo in the following letter. or
Letter 13

Sweetheart Sam!
Understand!! 198 it is cost of all documents!! It is the visa, the insurance, the passport and many other things!!! How you will send it to embassy??? I cry it in different places!!! You should send money to me!!! I need only $198 to come to you. I don’t rush things. I just have a very good chance to get visa rather quickly and I don’t want to use this chance. But I don’t have money for this that is why I ask you for your help. The visa is given for 3 months. That is our chance, that;s why I ask you to send me $198. If I don’t get money now, then it will be very difficult to do it. This process is getting more and more difficult with each day. Embassy makes new rules every time and they are very strict. You can send money through Western Union: TRANSCREDITBANK, KIROVA, 111 KURGAN, 640000, RUSSIA. It is not far from the place I work. I need only $198. My full name is Galina Yudicheva. I want you to know that I love you so much and never forget about this. I never thought I could have such feeling. It is so strong that I can’t keep it inside. It is such a happiness to know that I love and that there is a person who also loves me and waits for me as much as I do. All we need now is to wait for some time till we are together. I want so much to be with you. I have been waiting for you all my life. And I love you. I am not afraid to tell you this and I am not afraid of my feelings. I know that you are the man who makes me happy. And I know that I can also make you happy. I am sure everything will be Ok and we will be happy with you. Love you, love you.
Wait for your letter.
P.S. I wanted to send you 2 photos, but the scanner in Internet cafe to break. The manager has told, that the new scanner will bring only in 1 week. I cannot send you a photo in this term. Or
