My journey to find a foreign bride
I totally agree with you Scott. I took your advice after email exchange with Irina on RussianBrides. Several days later I found in my RussianBrides account email Sent box the email sent to her that I never sent and it was still unread by her.
She told me they were computer generated. I felt the email communication with Irina was too smooth and her profile pics shown AnastasiaDate on them. That sealed my suspicions. She tells me in her 3rd email that her very old Aunt is very unwell and has no one else to look after her and she is now living with her Aunt and cannot send me any real photos of herself until she returns home. Irina is the only person I am communicating with. I was left wondering who she really worked for or whether that was Anastasia staff adding that themselves.
My Russian friends in NZ here warn me it is SCAM and that the women on Chat most likely gay male staff being paid pretend they are women and to offer cyber sex to lonely men. I spent 7 years in prison for murdering my wife. I am now fully rehabilitated and pose no further threat to the community. I have the AIDS virus from being raped in prison. I am looking for a finacially wealthy woman to spend the rest of my life with. I am deleting around letters a day and Irina tells me I have a lovely sense of humour.
It makes sense that they are bringing in millions each year. I am surprised to read your explanation about mailing me only. We both are adult people and everyone free to do what he or she wants.
I am not jaleous. And I am not going to control your mailbox and so on… Everyone gets what he or she is worthy. If somebody likes chatting and playing with young girls — it is his or her choice. The main reason is people should be happy. If these games make somebody happier, have fun and after it they do not feel alone — why not? Here is my phylosophy No need to send me a copy of your PC screen.
I am really not interested in it ]. So that tells you something. Try typing in a post just RussianBrides. Here is an oldie but a goodie. New update to my search: I did have one lady in Moscow whom I had communicated with for the past year by private email.
I made it clear to her that I was not going to spend endless months exchanging letters with her on the site. We are now exchanging person info this week. Yes, it does limit the number of girls you can contact. But I have found girls that I really think we might be compatible with. Several others also quickly gave me their email addresses but I never contacted them. They were beautiful, but you have to go with your gut-instinct and not your penis. Make it clear what the ground rules are with them.
I let them know in so many words that it is like that old Cold War term: What a difference it has made in my search. And a serious business at that. Approach it in that manner and you will find far more success. I agree with everything you said about the site in your review above and I too believe that most of the women there are genuine; I know that my wife was! VS, thanks for your comments. I concur with everything you said. I flew to visit with her for 14 days mid to late February even during the massive protest in Kiev.
She was amazing and instrumental in booking my apartment both in Kiev and her hometown. She took care of everything. When the killings started Feb 18th she immediately found two different taxi drivers to get me out of Kiev for my safety after the government shut down the cities transportation.
I even got my money back from the Kiev apartment landlord for the days I would not be staying there which is amazing for a corrupted country as Ukraine. It was a crazy and amazing experience. She and I hit it off very well and communicated each day since we met in December.
She owns her own clothing boutique, has a University degree from Moscow and speaks English well enough to communicate on a daily basis. She recently visited me in Japan for a week to ensure she could accept living in Japan until my transfer and everything was perfect. I even proposed marriage to her and she accepted. She is the real deal! As Scott mentioned there will be some that will not reply, but when they do and the communication last for more than a week or two then it is time to consider more toward her.
Thanks for the update and report on your progress. Alana asked me the other day if any of the readers at this site had ditched American women and found love in Eastern Europe. Also, Mike commented that he has had good results with Ukraine Cupid. It is nice to have one and now two choices in a sea full of corruption and bogus sites. Well , yes , I am reading most of the posts , for some months now. And , I can say , that in general , it all gives a good basis , for those men , who wants to go to some of these CIS countries or Russia.
About the Cupid — Ukraine Dating site , well , I sort of , took a glance , and signed up. What I noticed , when browsing the female galleries , is that there are a large part , of ladies , who have logged in , more than 9 months , or more than 1 year ago!!
I would say , that this is somewhat , confusing. Why keep these profiles , still in the database. Of course , it would not cost you extra money. Because you pay for 1 or 3 months , or longer. But it does raise some questions. Like I said ,at the moment , I am in a somewhat serious relation , with a lady from Odessa. A few days ago , I received a somewhat strange mail , in my private email box , and it supposedly , comes from Elenas Models.
Now , I only check the site , every now and then. Since mid , I believe , I did stop the recurring billing. And , I mentioned , that , later EM told me , that I would loose , all the remaining credits. In fact , while , after every payment , I got 50! So , I tried , to consume , as many as possible. But then again , you as the man , should be very lucky , when there are about 35 women , on the site , who match YOUR criteria.
As for me , it was not the case. So , after the next recurring date , on which , there was no payment cancelled , I only had 1 month left , to use my credits more than 50!! I , today , see , that there is an explanation , on EM , about the recurring , and what happens , when you stop the payments. So , they are pressing you , yes???
And then , when he replies , she will not respond anymore. Or , after some letters , she suddenly stops , the correspondence. As some of you know , I did mention this , for Russian Cupid and for Ukrainedate. On these sites , I found profiles , where some ladies , did not login , for more than 6 months or even 1 year.
But EM , did not send me an email , about the above mentioned. No , in fact , I received a mail , which is about different topics, of things from the past and present.
But , about Russian or Ukraine events , and some in cooperation , with the West. The header , of the mail is , well , hold your breathe: Then , it contains a link , to , some footage , from a Russian tv channel. Well , to me it seems , more like a regular program. About the same , like Catfish , in America. Only , here they go really , beyond borders , of what is acceptable and ethic , tv making. Although , the video , about the lie detector test , is from , it will give an indication , of what some local Belarussian or Russian men think.
There are other links , on that web page , about some other footage , and observing and trailing work , that the tv channel , has conducted , and has also broadcasted. Where man or wife , are caught , while having sex , with the unloyal spouse. Unfortunately , I could not understand , one word , of the dialogue , because , it is all in Russian. But , I do get the picture he , you can interpret this , in 2 ways , too ;-. And if it is allowed , for a tv crew , to put a video camera , on a stick , and from the balcony , 1 floor higher , filming , what is going on , in the bedroom , 1 floor below!
And then , let the wife or husband , come to the door , and knock , to have the main occupant , to answer the door. And , filming , all the drama , which unfolds , afterwards. Remember , someone , may watch YOU …………. If the site were legitimate, it would post a video of the woman in America with the client- blocking the face of the client out.
I assure you, given all of the scams out there, people would be happy to do this — and given their high pricing, they could offer some cash back for time and trouble of posing near a landmark identifiable in their area. Carey, a bit confused about your post. I have a couple of questions about how the site works. Back then , it was not , so openly , mentioned , that after the 3 months , had past , they would charge again. And add another of 50 credits , I believe , it was , to your account.
Well , figure out , how to use about 50 or so credits , in this time. So , lost all the remaining credits , after that , expiring day. But , I can give a like vote , for the ladies picture. My profile is still on , but I need to upgrade , to get full use , of everything if you know what I mean.
Today , I heard some great news. But on the other hand , it may have other impacts. Starting from summer , it is free , for citizens , from Ukraine , Turkey and Georgie , to visit the EU , without the need for a visa.
Of course , some of us , had hoped , that this would happen in the future. And others , would have liked , that it would be very soon! So , now that it will be a reality , what will be the implications , on the internet dating scene?? How will it affect , relations , which are still developing , at this moment?
Will online dating agencies , have more registered members , or not? Will it be more difficult , to find a Ukrainian lady , or will this make it easier??
What about the competition , now that they have this big pool , of European men , at their disposal?? Or , what will be the effect , on these EE women.
For sure , coming over , to visit or even work on a temporary basis , will have an impact , on their way of thinking. Getting to see and know , the life here. And be a part of it. Even though it is for a limited period. Will feminism , get a stronger grip on them , because of this? Millions of Ukrainians will now try and go to Europe looking for illegal work, criminal deeds while females will join others in European whore houses. This will inevitably happen.
Internet dating scene in Ukraine will have to deal with leftovers of a very low quality. Soon there will be NO decent Ukrainian females left in Ukraine. Just Holland and Germany can accommodate s of females from Ukraine looking for big money fast! Wow , an update , to my previous post. I have just spoken to my girlfriend , about this. And she tells me , that it is not true.
Well , at least for now. There was some debate by Ukraine government or political parties , I believe , but from what I understand , ther is no conclusive decision. Ukrianians were angry , because , prices in Ukraine , and the costs for living , have gone up , significantly , in the past weeks. The people said , that who will go to Europe , on holiday , with these high living costs? Which they can barely bring up! So , it is in fact , maybe not effective , for Ukrainians.
Perhaps , it is for people from Turkey and Georgie. Visa free travel will happen rather sooner than later. Right now the final report with recommendations is being postponed until the end of December. Majdan was a total failure resulting in a worse dictatorship than Ukraine had with Yanukovich former president I do not think Turkey will get visa free travel now by the way.
Ukraine has a population of about 35 of people at the moment, and Turkey has 75 of people living in it. Georgia might get it, yes, but its population is 3.
If you have any questions-feel free to ask. Yes , it is a probability , that People from Ukraine , will come here , to seek for illegal work. At the same time , it is a bit , or very difficult , to get a job , without the right papers or documents. As to working , in the seks industry. There are plenty of opportunities , in Russia and Turkey , to name a few. And I bet , that there are more countries , where EE women , can travel to , if they want , to be in this type of business.
You are right , that many refugees , from the Middle East , now seek asylum in Europe. And , because of this , I assume , that there will be , more swift measures , when people from EE , come here as a tourist , and then have illegal jobs. And , yes , it will have an impact , on dating agencies. Those women , who can afford , to come here on a holiday , may change their vieuw , on what type of man , and what criteria he has to fit. Women from Ukraine , who wants to make big money , fast , well , their chances for this has gone up.
It will be no secret , that women from Russia and other EE countries , come here , to work in a brothel , for a short period of time. So , all in all , is this good or bad news , for the men , who plan to go to Ukraine , to find a wife??
It will surely be a good idea , for them , to not postpone their trip. And to start to plan the trip , or seek contact with possible candidates. Paul, Ukrainian folks who go to Europe to work illegally and get paid under the table do not care about papers, permits etc. The initial goal of many EE women is to come and work in a brothel in Germany or Holland and then to find a local man, marry him and settle down in the West.
A year or two from now it may already be too late. I joined the site, went to Ukraine, stay for 6 weeks, took out a number of the women from the site. Found that, they are just woman wanting a good man to support them. Now this words support is maybe not a good word, but it is what you will be explained by them.
We, as WM see support and the mind goes off into the wild, thinking about money. It has nothing to do with money, but it takes time to get that out of your head. Our western thinking is so screwed up, we miss the point completely. I will admit, it happened to me, but could not see the forest because of the trees. I now see, oh so clearly. Good for you Bryan. Ironically, I just now read your blog comment and saw how it greatly paralleled what I have just posted to Mr Lance.
Obviously, my deep experience has matched your recent experience which helps confirm both of our points. Keep it up, you are on the right track. You do not need any skills to do a basic check. Just right mouse click on the profile pic and left click on copy image address. You will be surprized. Not all profile images can be traced back to their original source. Companies such as RussianBrides who have their own photographer cannot be traced except back to RussianBrides.
Good practice the check any photos sent from girls. No woman like to admit her real age. Also carry out a plain image search without searching the url address. Yes, we met each other in person numerous times, so I know she was real. In the end, we were not right for each other, so we broke up. You can clean out the digital info and change the pixels to prevent it popping up when being searched.
So I played along and two weeks ago decided to ask her for her phone number but she responded by instructing me I had to pay the admin money for her phone number. I sent her an email telling her she sounded like a scam and I then blocked her but her emails had all disappeared. I am a bit late to this article. Thank you for all of the information that you have provided. I was actually about to sign up on Anastasia and after reading what you said I just dodged the bullet haha. My question though is with the visas.
Honestly how hard is it after you find a foreign woman to get her here? America is so hard on visas. Do you get married and her country first and does that somehow help or get here easier?
Interestingly, my Wife is currently writing a story about it now. Getting the fiance visa is notoriously slow, the easier way to do it is to bring her over on a tourist visa, get married and then have her return. Also, it is not allowed to come to the US on a tourist visa if your intention is marriage with the intent to stay — you could come with the intention to marry so long as you plan to leave and you do actually go back to your home country. Same thing goes for getting married on the first visit.
I suppose that USCIS would let her enter if she is getting married if they believe she will go back after the wedding, but this is a risky proposition — who wants to get sent back from the airport? It is better to come only as a tourist. If you chose this course, it is also necessary for her to leave the US as a married Woman, go back to her country and then come again on another tourist visa.
If you come on a tourist visa, get married and then try to change status, USCIS will likely consider that you intended to marry all along and that you perpetrated visa fraud by coming on a tourist visa. If you marry and then return to your home country, no one really looks at that sideways.
My advice is to just plan on her returning and using the fiancee visa process unless she has been to the US before as a tourist with a history of returning to her country. Figure that all of your emails and other electronic communications with anyone overseas is being copied by the NSA or other agency.
One piece of evidence uncovered even years later that you planned for that possibility and she will likely be immediately deported for committing immigration fraud — with essentially zero chance of ever returning. You can also be charged. I happen to be one of a few that successfully did have my Lady come to the US as a tourist, met her here, and then found out that there was a process by which she could stay and we could change her status if we married and married her, and she did not leave the US to return home for a visit and to get her stuff until she had a Green Card.
In this case she had a 10 year tourist visa to the US with a history of visits to the US and returning to her home country. We had multiple emails that the plan was if we clicked when we met while she was on her 6 week vacation in the US that she would return to her job and we would do the finance visa process.
We also hired an immigration lawyer — who ONLY did immigration — to handle the entire process. Even then it was not easy. I personally know a person who married a Lady, and then found out that she could not be admitted to the US as his wife due to stuff in her background that he did not know about. So I caution you about marrying while she visits and having her return home to process the paperwork. My Wife and I did the marriage on a tourist visa thing.
We did NOT intend on applying for a status change during that visit. Whether or not the NSA can use your emails may be a long shot. Either way, anyone planing to come to the US for marriage on a tourist visa must understand that its all about intent. If the USCIS suspects that you intended to migrate and came on a tourist visa, then they can dig for more info.
Best to play it safe. Most ladies were not interested in me it was refreshing ; but, within a week I was in email contact with a Lady from Ukraine fall , and on Skype shortly after that we used google translate a lot — and now laugh at a lot of the mistranslations. We met in person 4 months later, and were married a few months after that April We have been married now for 4. Well worth the cost — in fact a bargain. One thing I run across is females that say they have a visa, and want to arrange arrival.
I am a great dad, I have a daughter. I am very Kind, loving, caring, romantic, hard working, Have a good sense of Humor, Easy Outgoing, Passionate, Honest, Responsible, down to earth, full of life, free spirited. I Love To Smile and never get Angry. I am creative and I never Play Mind Games. I love romantic nights but missing that part for quite some time now, food, pretty much in that order.
An adventurous spirit motivates me to meet the challenges of being what and who I am today which drives me to seek out new experiences through travel, sight seeing and generally having fun. I Love cooking and think am good at it. I live in a russian town Tver.
It is about km from the city Moscow. My birthday is on the on April, 23, I am a doctor. I work here in a hospital as a physician. I have good education, university graduate. I like this work, I like to help people and see their gratitude.: Don't smoke and drink rarely. Prefer red wine or a small buttle of good beer. I enjoy sport and outdoors. Bicyclyng is my favourite pastime. I also have many hobbies and interests. For example history, geography, reading, music and so on.
I am trying to be a many-sided person not sure if this word is correct. I know English and I am working to improve it.: I am loyal and honest. I have good sense of humor and natural curiosity. I like animals and children. I like to be happy and make people around me happy too. I wrote that I am from the USA at my profile. Don't think I lie. I will come there in a couple of months. And I'll stay for about a year. I've forgotten to say I am single.
I've never been married and I have no children And yes, I am looking for my love.: I do not need a prince or a rich. I want a good guy. Really good guy with soul and heart. Who can love and respect his woman. Who can support and understand me.
I like decent and honest men. I have just a few things I cannot stand in the man: Hope I did not scare you: I will continue next time. Please tell me a little about you. What you like and what you think? Letter 2 Hello, my friend. I thank you for your letter and your interest in me. Matt, it is interesting to read your message. Thank for your pictures.
I want to know more about you. Please, tell me about your family,friends and people that you know. What is your usual day? I will also tell you what you want to know about me. I have good time to correspond with you. I can say it is becoming one of my favourite things. I do not remember if I told you about my hobbies or things I like to do for fun. It seems to me that people who wants to have some relationship must have the same ideas and goals in life and also the same ways for rest and fun.
I like different activities like sport, walking, going-out and outdoors. I cannot say that I am engaged in sport. I just like it. I like bicycle-riding, swiming and beach especially. Also I like to dance. I dance classic and modern dances. I am an amateur not a professional. I think the real woman should be beautiful both soul and body. My mother teached me to play piano.
I also can sing. I will try to learn some english songs. Hope you can hear them someday. I prefer italian and russian food. My favourite dishes are different soups and salads. I cook great Ukrainian borsch. It is a soup made of beet, meat, cabbage and carrot. As I said I like reading. I read different books, but prefer books about history and countries. I read a lot of Russia and America.
These countries are great. As for fun, I like the same thing like all people. I like to drink tea with friends in cafe. We talked about everything and nothing. I do not have a lot of friends, but all they are good people. To be honest I do not like 'empty' people.
My friends are almost my friends from childhood and youth. They are already almost married. Don't think that I am close person. I like to meet new people and make friends.
I am easy-going and I easily strike up new acquaintance. From another side I am not easy approachable woman. I think it is from my upbringing. Matt, I do not remember if I told you about my family. My mom died about two years ago.
Father has left from us when I was small. At him other family. The most close person now is my uncle, my mother's brother. I think he is like father for me. My mother was a doctor too, a surgeon. She has died of heart attack. She always helped people and it has done much harm to it her health. From my birth my mother wanted me to become a teacher.
I had enough strict upbringing. I had been not allowed to date with boys until I got 20 years old. My mother was old-fashion person. Probably it is not bad. I loved my mother and respect her. She could give me good upbringing. We did not have any conflicts. I always try to understand her. She loved me too and just wanted me to be happy. It was the most hard time in my life when she died. I thank my uncle, he was with me and supported me. I shall arrive to USA at the end of April. I want to explain, how.
I work in "ambulance. Every year the Ministry of Health of Russia carry out the international exchange of doctors between different country. This year they enrol doctors for groups that will come to the US. Russian doctors will work on probation for 12 months. They take doctors from our hospital. I has tried the application and pass an interview. They have rigid requirements: My specialization meets their requirements and I know English language.
I think I to take this vacancy because just a few doctors there can speak English. Many have their family and cannot leave them for a such long time.
February, 1 I have learned, that I have won competition. Now I wait, when will make my documents. It will be ready at the end of April. I still do not know city, where I shall work.
I can choose before departure. I hope, that I can choose your city. I am a little excited. This may be really big change in my life. And I can meet you there. Tell me what do you think? Well, hope it is not too boring to read. You see sometimes man must sit and think about his life and about what he is and what he wants.
It seems to me that I have this time now. Happiness, family, careful husband. I put spiritual life to the first, not material things. I am not looking for better life or getting rich. I am looking for full life. Why I cannot find husband here in Russia? I can, but I do not want. I see how my mother lived, I see how other people live in Russia. Yes, here is bad economics and I do not want to live here. I love my Motherland but I do not like the State. I want to have comfortable life and do not always be in searching good job and better salary.
I want to dedicate my life to my husband and my family. I do not want to say that I am lazy. I like to work, but I do not want to dedicate my life to my work.
I hope you understand what I am talking about. I see that many russian women try to go out from Russia looking for better life. They marry foreigners to get citizenship of another state. I do not like them. I believe in marriage for life. I want to marry for love. Matt, I want you to understand me in full, until we will make some any steps. Tell me what you think about this all and what else you would like to know.
Well, this letter seems to be long, so I will close. I send you two pictures. Hope, you will love it. It has been made in Crimea. Letter 3 Hi Matt. I enjoy reading your letter. I am very pleased you interest in me. Matt I want us to keep our correspondence and to know each other better.
Write me about your life, send pictures. I promise to do the same. I have been studying English for some years at University and then by myself. I like to read books in English.
And I still think I am not good enough to speak and to communicate easily. I write it by myself with a dictionary and I want to improve my language skills. You can give me the phone number? I have a free time in following week-end and I can call you. You know our meeting was a chance. I have been surfing Internet for some months. The first time I used Internet was for my work. I read about new methods in therapeutics. Then I started to surf Internet for two or three times a week.
And now it is one of my favourite things to do. Recently I have interested in dating service and decided to try it. I choose several profiles and you replied.: I am glad we've met. Matt I use Internet at Internet cafe. They have several computers here for public use.
I am here two or three times a week so do not worry if I cannot reply fast. I will write you each time I am here. I want to tell you more about my work. As I told you I work as an ambulance doctor. It gives me the opportunity of helping people. I work in shifts. Three times I work during the day, then I have two off days, and three days I work night shift. Yesterday they called in an ambulance for a automobile accident. A car crashed in a tree. Fortunately the driver survived with his life.
It seemed me a wonder because his car was terrifically damaged. There are some accidents when we cannot help anything and it is very awful. It hurts deeply to see others' suffering. I pray these accidents to be infrequent. Our work is very intensive and I stay at the ambulance car for all shift. I am often short of time to have dinner. Do they sell it in the USA? Here in Russia they sell it everywhere. In holidays I like to lie in the bed.
I go for a walk or to the cinema. Sometimes I meet my friends and we spend time together. Also I may order the flat. I like to keep my house in cleanness and cosiness. After that I cook great dinner. I enjoy different movies. My favourite american films are " Forrest Gamp " and " The master of the Ring ". I also love russian films. Recently Russians made a lot of good films. I think you do not know them. These are " The 9th company ", " Night patrol ".
I like different music like classic, jazz, rock, instrumental. From foreigner groups I like The Beatles ". I can listen to them all days long.
Reading is one of my passions. I like russian literature like Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Chekhov. I dream of building up a library at my home. I also like art especially painting but I cannot paint at all. My favourite colour is blue. I'd like to tell you about the exchange programm. This September the commission of Ministry of Health came to our town.
All doctors were offered to participate in the competition. I did and won it. I have a good chance to come to the USA for practical work for 12 months. Now I am waiting for answer from Moscow that my documents are ready visa and passport. It will be about April Unfortunately I have a little information about the programm because they do not have open sourses to read about it. It is internal programm of Ministry of Health and they deal with the state doctors only. All details I will learn when I come to Moscow to get my documents.
I will meet their other doctors that will come to the USA too. We will receive our papers and in two or three days come to New York. As to a place where I shall work. I could find out only, that I can choose Any of states including Arizona. Matt I still cannot imagine you are in the USA. I know your country just from the movies and TV. I would like to learn more about it and your people. I think we could give each other more full images about our countries by corresponding. I also hope to visit the USA some day.
I like to travel very much. It is great to see the world all over. I have not travel much. I was in several russian cities and once at the Black Sea.
My favourite city is St. Well, I am a little confused and I do not know what to say. I hope all this stuff is not too boring to read.: I just wanted to say that it is my serious intention.
I am interested in you and I want us to be good friends. I send you some pictures. I in the childhood. Waiting for your letter. Letter 4 Hello Matt. Hope you are OK. I am all right. I missed you these days when I was unable to read your letters. I don't know how it may happen so fast but I feel that we have been friends for years. What happened with you these days? Here things are the same. You know sometimes it seems to me that life stopped here.
And you live the same day everyday and it scares me. I may live all my life and I can't notice that life is going away. Matt you make my days another. Full of life and joy. Thank you for your writing. It really brights my days. Don't think that is just words. I always mean what I say Or at least I try to. Matt I can't still believe you are so far from me. Yes, I understand it but can't imagine it.
Yes, computer and Internet are like a window to the world. You know our acquaintance made me to think a little differently about people living in the world. Of course I knew about other countries and people but before it was like an idea, that I saw on TV, read in books and newspapers. But mass media can't give you the real situation about another country. With your letters I can feel your real life. Understand me please, I have just touched to different culture, life and people through you.
And I saw it is real. Matt I am a person that doesn't believe until he touchs. I realize you are the same person as I am. We speak different languages, live in the different countries but we want the same things in our lifes.
I feel that I am a part of something very huge and important. Thank you for giving me this feeling. I want to travel all over the world, to meet new people and to get new experience. I really think it is great fun and useful. What do you think? I actually may look naive but this is what I think. Yesterday I met my friends. We usually meet at someone's home or go to our favourite cafe. This is pretty nice place. It is small and very cosy. They don't sell alcohol there so it is not very popular.
I am not sure you know but usually russians drink a lot. Some russian comic said "the drinking is Russian national pastime".
It sounds funny but it is not too good in real life. It is always loudly where alcohol is on sale. Russian people in common don't know when to stop in doing something. If they drink they get drunk. My friends don't like to drink too as I do. They are almost my friends from university or childhood, and girls from my work. We talk, drink tea, coffe, joke, have fun. I like them all. It's a pitty we can't meet often but a time or too in month.
They almost are married and have family and children so they are constantly busy. Well the matter is that I told them about you. They were really happy for me. They already asked when I come to you.
I explained we are just friends but they still bantered me all evening. They say hello to you. I would like to introduce you to them one day. Well I must go now. I will try to write you sooner. Matt I really glad we "met". Letter 5 Hi Matt. I couldn't wait when I can come here to computer to read your letter. It really brights my day. I am really happy to get your reply. And I like we both enjoy our talking. Your letters mean a lot for me. Matt, yesterday evening I told with my uncle about you.
He is exciting about our friendly relationship. I read him some parts from your letters. Not all, just some sentenses. Hope you don't mind I share that with my uncle. He is the only close person to me and I trust him. He thinks you are worthy man.
But he said I must be cautious. I can understand his feelings. But for me you are honest man and I don't think you can ever deceive me. I know I may be mistaken with my thoughts about you. Only time will say the truth. Anyway my uncle said that he will support me in my choice and don't mind if I move. Matt, I don't know what is going on with me. I found myself thinking of you often. It seems to me that you are more than just a friend to me. I hope I didn't scare you off with my thoughts.
I wonder what you think about me as your possible life partner? Do you think that we could have common future? I understand if it is too straight question. But I would like to know your opinion. I am honest with you and I want you to be honest with me too. We must trust each other. It's very important in relationship. As for me I see you as my possible partner for life. I know we have great distance between us. But with our letters I feel you close.
I believe you are the man with nice soul. I think personal contact is more better than letters via e-mail. But now it is enough to know each other better and see if we realy can have something common in the future.
I hope we will meet one day. Well, I continue to tell about me and my life here. My usual day is not too intersting. I get up at 6 o'clock and at 8 I must be at my work. It takes me about 20 minutes to get there by bus or about 40 minutes on foot. I like to go to work on foot because it is very invigorative.
Today I got my salary at work. That small pleasant event always makes people to love their work if only for a day. I don't earn large sum of money. Don't know should I tell it to you or not? But I am enough satisfied with it. I wish I got more money, but I don't want to become crazy about it. I saw many people who wanted to get much money. Some of them gained it. But they almost changed their personality.
They can't talk about anything, only money. Yes, it is difficult to make good money in Russia. But money is not my life goal. For my salary I can buy something of clothes and it is enough to buy food. For russian standard I have about average earnings. I have a TV set and tape-recorder at home.
I don't have a car, but I can drive it. I have my bicycle and I enjoy riding it. Not sure how interesting it is to read about these things but I want you know. I know that we have different life levels. But it is interesting what are expenses for living at you.
In winter I pay additional 20 for central heating. I am lucky I has received an apartment in the new house. This apartment I have received from clinic. Actually it is not my accomodation. I can just live here. I have two rooms and a kitchen. It is usual things here. I want to show you life here. By the way how much is Internet access where you live? Matt, tell me about your the same things.
I am interesting what is your life there. I thought about my life and recent events. You know from my last relationship with man I understood that the connection between man and woman is very delicate. It needs efforts from both sides to be supported and developed. You can't just date, make love and say words. It is more deeper. My last boyfriend was a photographer. Some my pictures were made by him. He was more than just a photographer, he was an artist, a creator.
Our parting was not a tragedy. In the certain time we both understand we are not together and decided to break it. I don't miss him. It was the best we could do. Matt I don't know why I tell it to you. Now I want to create full relationship and I know how to do it. I will try to give all my soul to my man and I need his one for me.
Well don't get it too close. It is just my thoughts and I'd like to share it with you. Looking forward to geting your letter. Nadya Letter 6 Hello Matt. We have warm day today and I have time to talk with you.
Don't think I forgot about you. No, I think of you often. I am very intersting to know you more and I like we can talk via email. Is it OK for you that I can't write you everyday or regularly?
I will try to write as often as I can. I thought, that it will be later. There I shall listen to lectures on the English language and a terminology in the American medicine. I shall find out details of trip in USA and I shall receive my passport for foreign travel.
In Moscow I shall be days. I shall inform you in what city I shall be work and exact date of arrival. I shall try to write to you the letter from Moscow. Last days I thought about you a lot and I thought about us. I thought may it be possible for us to meet each other one day. I thought how real is Internet. How we can learn each other throught it. Really it seems to me that there is no difference what way we communicate. The important thing is that we can learn each other and to have image of our character in our minds.
And it is great. Matt this is my postal address: Please, don't send any presents to me. I would feel very uncomfortable to accept it if I would get them. Our postal system is very unreliable and I don't want you waste your money. Matt also give me your postal address, in case if I don't email you, I may send you some card to let you know I am ok.
Matt tell me what is happening in your life? I have to go now. I will write again soon. On the picture near to me are my friends. Letter 7 Hello my dear Matt! Today I have an opportunity to write you. What happen in your life? Hope you think about us.
I could not wait to read your letter. I am really happy we are in touch. Thank you for your letters. They make my days. I think of you all the time. You are very close to me. I dont ' know how it could happen so fast. I feel you very close. Every passed day decrease the distance between us. Moscow is a large and beautiful city. There are a lot of people here and it makes me a little uncomfortable. Everyone is in a hurry.
There are crouds of people in the Metro too. Everyone is filled with his problems. Moscow is really different from other russian towns. Tver is a quiet town. Simple and open people live there. There is different atmosphere. Everyday we attend lectures. I did not imagine there is such intense studing. But everyone is happy. Everyone waits anything new from this travel. We discuss everything in the group. Noone from us have been to the USA. Tell me how many women drive a car there?
What policemen think about it? I have met in Moscow the girlfriend Marina with the husband. They too make out the passport for travel abroad. They go to have a rest to Egypt. Her husband, Peter, works in our trade union. Peter helped me to have an opportunity to go to USA. They very good people. We were told that we had got a great chance to participate in the exchange programm.
It is very difficult to come to the USA for a usual russian citizen. It needs to arrange a lot of documents. It takes a lotof time and money to get visa. I am really happy I've got the chance.
Yesterday I has received my passport. I am very glad. All doctors will fly to New York at first. My plane is on April,17, There they will make 4 or 5 groups that will come to different states. Good moment is that your state in the list and I will come there.
But I do not know yet what clinic or hospital I will work at. I will be told of it in New York. Our trade union promised to pay my travel. It includes an air ticket, food, transportation and hotel until I settle in a new place.
They once again will check up our professional suitability. April, 24 I should arrive to a place of work. I shall have 3 free days. I can To carry out it with you If you want it , or with other girls in hotel.
They said I will have a salary while I am working in the US, also they'll supply an apartment for me. I will be able buy my own flat. Matt I am so happy. I do not like money for what they are. I am happy what possibility this travel opens for my future. You are also in my plans I miss you very much. We will meet and get together for sure.
I can tell you that I am really happy. The only idea I am living with is our meeting in person. It will be the best day of my life. It is getting late and I must go. Letter 8 Hi Matt.
I am glad to come here, sit at the computer and read your letter. You give me good charge of the energy for days. I enjoy to talk to you very much.
Matt this letter will be short because I have a lot of things to do here. I must arrange all papers at my work and pass evrything to another doctor.
I even didn't think that it takes so much time. Hope you understand and you are not mad at me.
