Mon Jun 03, 2019 12:48 am

I have sent this letter before. Did you get it?




Tue Jun 04, 2019 10:08 pm

Dear !
I have friend Vika. She is close friend. She makes all my pics.
She likes to photographe me. It's her hobby. I like to pose her.
I decided to come to the Internet cafe again to write you.
I already spoke you - I shall arrive to you in a month.
I still choose college in which I shall go to study.
I shall inform you the name when I shall know.
I shall know all the information in a week.
I had relations with men in my life. But I can’t depend on a man.
When I love I give all of myself to this person.
Unfortunately, men can’t always appreciate this. I like sex but
I think that when you are in relations with someone you should
be faithful and do not betray the one who lives with you.
Unfortunately, men here want to have everything, a faithful wife
and another woman as a lover. I am a very devoted and faithful
person and this I can’t accept. Hope you understand me.
Sex is very good but I accept it only with the person that
I love. I am not a virgin but at the same time I am not a s1ut.
My last relations were 2 years ago. Unfortunately, it didn’t
work out as he was too busy spending good time with his friends
all the time and he almost paid no attention to me. I was just
like a beautiful thing for him and nothing more. Since that time
I had no relations with other men.
Well, it is not really comfortable to talk about sex right now.
You know that I write from the internet cafe and there are
lots of people around me. And also I don’t know you too good
yet to discuss this topic.
I have to go now. People are coming and coming to the internet
cafe and you know my time is limited (15min). Internet cafe is a
place where everyone can come and use a computer there. We have to
pay for such a service. It is not a library where you can use
computers free of charge. But here the time is limited as there are too many
people who need to use them. Please, tell me about your family.
What relations do you have with them?
Enjoy you day!!!
All the best to you.
P.S. I asked you in my previous letter to send me your address.
I want to send you a card and my picture. Or perhaps, I will
send you a hand written letter.

Fri Jun 07, 2019 11:37 pm

Hello ,
I am so glad I have you in my life and I have an opportunity
to come to the Internet cafe and talk to you...
I am not really in a good spirit today.
Sometimes I feel that I am very tired from my life in Russia.
I have nothing. I rent a very small apartment and can’t afford
anything better. I get a very small salary and prices increase
here every year. But salaries are still the same. I was shocked
when I get to the store to buy some food yesterday. They
increased prices again for milk products. Milk costs about one
US dollar which is too much. For-example, my salary is 120 US
dollars a month. And a half of it I pay for the apartment.
And what is left I spend for food.
Therefore I wish to leave to live in other country.
Therefore I save money for a trip.
I am just tired from a hard life here. And I want to move to
a foreign country. I want to get another education, to find
a good job there. That is why I am trying to get a student visa.
I shall study and work. I shall work to pay training and my life there.
I haven't decided yet what University I am going to come to.
I am still searching information. I would like it to be close to
you. I am doing the paperwork now. And as they told me my
visa would be ready in a month. But I don't know
the exact dates. It is just the way things are done here. As soon
as I know everything, I will let you know.
I want to have a more stable life for me and my future family.
And what is more important I want have a strong man near me
and to have a comfortable life for us. So I am trying to save
money any way I can for my trip and studies.
Please, forgive me for writing this to you. But I need to talk
to you. It is sometimes so hard to be just by myself. And
sometimes I need a strong shoulder and a friend to cry and to
get an advice.
I know that you are a very understanding person. So, please,
try to understand me. You are my friend and I trust you.
Now I shall go to a bathroom. I like to lay in bathing with foam.
It would be great to take a bath together. It is very
relaxing. And I think it is rather romantic.
You want it with me?
PLease,let me know what you think of this.
Write me your thoughts and your dreams.
Write a replay to me. Your letter will make me glad.
I will wait with hope.



Mon Jun 10, 2019 11:35 pm

Hi dear ,
In the first lines of this message I want to apologise for
complaining in my previous letter.
I don’t really want to complain and I don’t want to talk about
money any more. This was the first and the last time I did it.
I was just in a very bad spiring while writing my last letter
to you.
Sometimes we have bad periods in life and we need a strong shoulder
of a friend. I hope that you let me think you are my friend. And
I trust you that is why I decided to share my thoughts with you.
If you ever need to talk and if you ever need a friend, you can
always talk to me...
I have been thinking a lot about our meeting and I want to
meet with you a lot.
I am doing all the paperwork now to get a student visa. And
I do hope to get it. So if I get it I will be in your country.
and I think it is really a very good opportunity for
us to meet.
Please, tell me do you really want to see me? Do you want me
to visit you? Do you think that we could like each other and be
together in the future? Please, be honest with me and tell me
the truth.
I know that you are being tired with this question. But you
should understand my concerns. This is a very major decision to
move to the other country.
Perhaps, you wonder why I have such a big desire to move from
here. The reason is very simple. I have nobody and nothing to
stay here. I will miss my friends, but they already have their
families and they live with their own lives.
I have no good job, have no stability. I have no family. It is
very hard to live in Russia and I don’t think it will ever be
better. And I am really tired from this life. That’s why I have
such a strong desire to get a student visa, to come there, to
get a new education, to settle down and already to have a family.
I hope that you understand me and that you support me in my decision.
Please, don’t be offended if I don’t always answer your questions.
I do it because my time in the internet cafe is limited. I don’t
always answer your questions because I am in a rush when I
answer your letters.
I wait your answer on my questions...



Thu Jun 13, 2019 10:41 pm

Hello dear .
Today I am writting to you why I am alone. I am so tired that
males sees on me as on beautiful pic only but not on woman.
I think you like my spirit mainly not my appearance.
That's why I feel so easy myself with you. I have never felt
it with another males. I feel that you like my spirit firstly
and then appearance.
I want you to understand that I do really like you very much.
And I think that we have much in common and may be if meet we
will understand that we are a good match.
I am trying to get more information about the student visa
and I am doing a paperwork that is neccesary for it. There are
so many things that I should do for this but I think it is worth it.
I am going to come to your country. I am sure I will get my visa.
And I want to know will you meet me there? You are my friend
and you are a very close person to me already. And I like you
very much. I feel that there is something between us.
I hope you too have the same feelings. Of course, I can’t say
that I know you very well. But I feel that you are close to me.
I wish to know you better. I wonder how it can be to spend
time with you, to be with you, to cook together, to have dinner
together, to watch movies, to walk holding hands.
Letters are good, they help to understand people better. But
only meeting can show the real feelings. When you can touch, look
into each other’s eyes, it says a lot.
Please, tell me what you think of this. Would you like to meet me?
Any way you can be my friend. I will be in a foreign country and
I will need a person I can trust. And I trust you already and
I hope you do the same.
Please, think on this and let me know if you too want to meet
with me. I want it very much. I want to see you in real life,
to talk to you, to know you real but not only through the letters.
I think, I can trust you?
I already wrote to you, that all my pics is done by my friend Vika.
She says I have a beautiful body.
She is a very talanted photographer and I like to be her model.
She is my friend and is a very good girl. She usually takes pics
of me. We went to work together.
She works close to my place.
Also today she has made 2 pics me and my passport.
I shall attach to you it in the following letter.
I will go now to get more information about visa.
I am going to get very important information.
I hope to hear good news.
I shall have information approximately in half an hour.

Bikini photos not post-able.

Hello my dear !
I have all the information about my visa now. And I will get
it without any problems. It will be so great to come to your
country at last and to see you. I even can’t believe this
could happen some day! Yes, perhaps, I act like a silly girl.
But I already dream of our meeting. I try to imagine how this
could be. How I will touch your hand, look into your eyes.
So now I have to do is to show them all the papers and to
pay for it.
But here I have one problem. I tried to save money. But I didn’t
expect I would have to pay for visa so soon. I thought it would
be later. So I don’t have enough money right now.
And I need your help in this if you really want to meet me.
I need 240 US dollars to pay for visa.
It will include medical insurance and everything that should
be there. Perhaps, you think why it is so expensive. Well,
sum of money includes visa, insurance, medical certificate
and many other papers.
I already have got my passport for going abroad. I have already
made it and have paid for it. But I didn’t think that they would
give visa so soon. And if I don’t pay for it now, I could have
problems in the future with getting visa. And I don’t want to
miss this chance. To prove you that I am real and I don’t lie
to you, I am going to attach you a copy of my passport.
So all I need to do now is to pay for visa. And then everything
will be done and all we have to do is wait for the time it is
issued. I have only 7-10 to pay for it and I will get it
without any problems.
This visa allows me to stay in your country for 3 months.
And to enter any university during 3 months. I can stay for
longer is I enter the university. But if I find a job I can
stay for the rest of the time in your country if I find a
job when I finish my education. But I also plan to work there
while I study. I don't want to depend on any one.
I will return back your 240 $. I am asking it to borrow.
I will work and return back it. I promise.
I’ve got to know that the best way for you to send money
through Western Union or Money gram. Please, don’t send me
money by regular mail. First, for sure I will not get it as
they steal money and things here. And also it will take long
time for the mail to come. And then I will miss my chance
with visa already.
So, please, use WU or Money gram for sending money. It is
an easy and quick way to get it.
You already know my address, I’ve sent it to you already.
And my full name is DARYA KOLOTUKHINA.
You better check or to get
more information and also offices that are close to you.
Also there is an opportunity to send money from the credit
card. You just need to visit any office of WU or MG.
Or through the site or
You even don’t need to leave your place to do it.
You can send money to any Western Union of Belgorod.
Please, understand my problem and send me 240 dollars.
So, please, let me know if you can help me in this.
