Hello Dirk!

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 dont 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

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?

Dirk, 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,

Letter 2

Van: Yana
Datum: 20-12-2007 20:18:43
Aan: Dirk van Dellen
Onderwerp: i'm glad to receive your reply!

Dear Dirk,

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

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,

Onderwerp: from Yana

Hello dear Dirk,

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 tell you about my experience of relations with foreigners.
In summer I met a man on the cite from the USA. His name was Jorge. We
became good friends at first and we were friends, and no more. He came
to visit me in my town. When we met in person and spent some weeks
together, I made sure that we don't match each other as couple. On the
first day of our meeting he insisted that I should come with him at
the hotel and make love with him. Of course, I rejected, because I am
a serious and romantic lady, and not a prostitute. We were with
interpreter, and I felt that I was going to blush for shame. He was
very rude with me and used to tell me that he spent lots of money for
me, and he could by for him a shabby car for such money that he spent
for visiting me. Several times he drove me to tears. I came to
conclusion that we didn't match each other as a couple at all, because
I am a delicate, fragile and romantic lady, and he was very
thick-skinned and insensitive man, very greedy and opinionated. We
spent together three days and I told him that I was very sorry, but I
didn't see our common future. I wished him good luck and find his
soulmate as soon as possible. Then he left home, to the USA. But he
continued to write me and ask me to move to him forever, because he
spent so much money for me and so on. But I rejected because it wasn't
my fault that we didn't match each other. He threatened me to inscribe
me to the scammers' list and called me scammer and so on. But I didn't
ask him money at all. He spent money for the trip to Ukraine and paid
interpreter. But it wasn't my fault that I understood that he wasn't a
man with whom I would like to share my life. So, that man inscribed me
to the scammers' list. But nevertheless I am still trying to find my
future husband abroad in Internet.

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

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 came twice...

Van: Yana

Onderwerp: From Yana, with love

Hello my dear Dirk,

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 are not looked the same they have looked

Dear, thank you for your understanding and support about my last
experience with a foreigner. I think, that when we meet, we will not
have such problems, because from your letters I understood that you
were a real gentleman.

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

With love,
