(What I havent heard back from her!? Im so bummed... :-( )
Hi Dear Benni, Thank you very much for your reply. Now I will tell you more about me and my life; I hope that doing all this you will be able to know me better and to feel more close to me. Same time I hope that you continue to talk about you, your life and your wishes. So, where to start from? OK. First of all my name, I was named Elena because this was the name of my grandmother (father side) and I am really proud of it expecially now that I cannot see often my father. My dad is an engeneer and I can only see him few months a year cause he works on a ship as mechanical director but when he can stay home me and mom really love and enjoy him, he is really a funny and strong person but what I really adore in him is that he allow me to do all . even too much .. Probably he feel to give to me in this way all what he cannot give cause his absence during the year. But who soffer more is mom, she must spend all her time working, taking care home and to my life, she is really lovely and even if sometimes we can argue I must tell that she is really great. I would like to do something to help her but I cannot at present. So this is my lovely family, plus a tender cat whos name is dolaro (as the us currency). I am still 26 y.o., until the 22th of october and I graduated at university of St Petersburg in pedagogical siences but after I got my diploma in violin. I am now working with a small group of musician here in St Petersburg and keep some small concerts in theatres and in some cafe; I also work as teacher of violin. Unfortunately my salary is not enough to say I am a rich person (only 150 USD each month) but this is normal for Russia and I can look forward to my future
I was born in Moscow but when I was the age of 8 years old I moved to St Petersburg (1 hour by plane from Moscow) cause dad needed to work here. We are now leaving few kilometers from the centre, close to the finnish gulf, our flat looks just the sea.I have one good friend, Tanya (for me Tanyiushka)
, I really love her cause she is the only close friend I have here, except collegues at work. With Tanya I spend all my free time and she advice me in many things she is really clever and can speak fluently 3 languages plus russian, now she is working in a travel company and she organizes turistic group to foreign country; this is the reason she can make me dream when talk about all wonderful places exist outside here.
I travelled abroad only in Greece and Bulgaria, always with dad.So, about myself. I am a tender girl, sensitive and friendly but same time really activie and full of life. I did a lot of swimming in past and I took part to national competitions in Russia but now I cannot follow anymore this activities.At present I have a big big dream to build my own family with a man able to take care, to respect, to deeply love myself. I have few experiences in my country but always I understood that this men didnt want to build a normal family. they like to have more than 1 relationship and rarely build think about a house. I can understand their situation, no job and no house .life is difficult .. But the worst is that normally men here have not also the wish to build something, they are not interested. For this I took decision to have my family abroad, or at least to try to have my family and my parents agree in all this even if I promised them that I will always be close. I am looking for a normal person, as generally speaking, but special for me; this means a person special inside, a person able to take his responsability to do something not so easy . the way of building a family with a foreign girl. I can be a good wife, I can cook well and I love it, I can take care all what my husband need and also (if will be) to future child. I can also try to find a job abroad, I understand it will not be so easy at the beginning but I can speak some english and I graduated in economics so I can try to develop my skills. What more .. I think this is more than enough as a first letter, we can talk more in the next. Talking, of course, help us to know better each others so that we can understand soon if we are the right persons to meet. MM, the last. As you can see, my dear, I have serious plans for my future what about yours? Tell me more about you. Any more photos of you are well appreciated!!! With love, Elena
Dear Elena, yadda yadda...I told her a bit about me and my background + some photos
Hi Benny, Thank you very much for your new letter. I always love to open my computer and find a letter, this makes me feel anxious to know about and to dream. In this way we all should tell a big big Thank you to the internet.

I hope one day to be able to buy a second hand computer with internet. Today it is a cold day, here temperature is minus 4 and streets are enough dirty, this is something that I really not like cause I cannot weare good clothes, in reality I love to be always in shape, you will see me. You must understand, dear, that I really love to be always in a good dress for my pleasant and to change my looking from time to time, I mean to change style of clothes or hair style or kind of shoes. In reality I have not money to buy new clothes but from time to time a holiday happen and somebody such as mom or aunt present to me something.
I am having an intensive working period cause until the 31st of march I will play 5 hours all evenings in a new restaurant of st petersburg, it is a kind of show in group with other people and all morning we meet with our group to try for May when will start city concerts. My job is not regular I can have extra work in some periods such as summer and a lot of free time in others. I will take 2 or 3 weeks of vacation in april cause will finish my contract for evenings and I want to relax before may starts. I do not have plans for my vacations but I will imagine something, maybe to go for 3-4 days to Finland or Polland with a friend of mine, but I am still not sure. Now, dear, I leave you for a short time waiting for your new letter. I want to know more and more and see many pics of you. I will try to send you as many pics than possible so that you can know me well, unfortunately I can send only few pics each time cause yahoo system. Waiting, . I send you a BIG KISS!!!!!

Dear Elena, It is so good to hear from you. Thank you for your photos and Tanyas. Tanya is also a very pretty young lady :-) I will see if I have a friend who will be interested in her. Please send me her details. Do you live in Moscow or St. Petersburg? In your concerts do you play the violin or piano? My brother is a musician professionaly as well. He plays the piano and he is into jazz music. Sounds like you are a lady who likes to be beautiful. That is good. Good taste and looking good is always a plus. Of course you must have a matching pair of shoes! :-) *big smile* As long as you dont get too overboard like Imelda Marcos (ex Philippines Presidents wife). LOL :-)
Have you considered coming to Miami, Florida for your vacation in April? (Im sending the bait...) So tell me, when is your birthday? Where would you like to go in the world? If you had a chance to go any where, what would be your 1st choice? What do you like to do in your spare time? What makes you happy or sad? What inspires you? What are you looking for in a man? Are looking a serious relationship? Do you want to have childrens? How many? yadda, yadda... Take care for now and I look forward to hear from you soon. Kisses Benny

I usually play violin in concerts and I am so glad to knoe that your brother plays too ... probably we can have a duo me and him. I love travelling. ... but now it is not the main, if I will travel will be to try to meet my soulmate, not just for fun. By the way I would like to go to a warm place ... maybe with a beach, you can understand me ... here it is always so cold. Inspiration? all in feelings, expecially when I have a bad mood ... that is the moments I can be more inspired and i can play something good .... music looks to be a kind of personalo satisfactions. Today it is a warm day, temperature is plus 4 and streets are enough dirty after the snow of two days ago that now is becoming water, this is something that I really not like cause I cannot weare good clothes, in reality I love to be always in shape, you will see me.

Elena Ps: write me soon!!!!
Dear Elena, Thanks for your reply and yes maybe you and my brother can play in a duo. He also plays the violin, but I think he prefers piano/keyboard. Do you have yahoo messenger or instant messenger? This maybe is a fun way for us to communicate. We can chat and get to know more about each other. Well Miami is a warm place, that is for sure :-) But right now it is beautiful it is around 25c sunny. I would really like you to come here oneday. Did you say you are living in St. Petersburg at the moment? I would really love to travel there one day. What are you looking for in a soulmate? Are you corresponding with other guys at the moment? I better go do some work. Take care for now. Im thinking about you. Kisses Benny
Hi dear Benny, what do you mean one day ..... are you corresponding with many girls? I am corresponding with you at present and I am looking for a lastlong relation abroad. I am looking for what i couldnt find in my country ... love and a family as mine. And you ??? this is why I correspond with you .. I dont like to be a penpal, I have not this purposes.
Mailme soon love elena
Hi Benny, I always love reading your letters. Thanks a lot. Yesterday evening came at home aunt Larissa and my 2 cousins Anna and Joulia, here we often meet with relatives and friends and this is the opportunity to eat some cakes, sweets and some the or champane (ok, russian champagne .that means 1 bottle for 1 dollar), after that we talk and talk and enjoy few our together. Probably it is also true that cause of the low temperature we accept to dring some alcool speaking about me I am very controlled, after all our champagne has not more than 10 degrees. I am living at the 5th floor of a big building. Here all flats looks similar and all buildings look the same but inside my home is really warm. I have a my own bedroom where mostly there are pictures of me with my parents, friends and playing the violin. By the way, eventhough one day I will move abroad I would like to have the possibility from time to time to return to my home, very poor but with so many emotions and memories inside. My parents promised to me that if I will move abroad they will try to do all possible to save money and come to meet me. You know, my dear, I want really move abroad cause i need a family, a strong family similat to mine at present, in this way my parents are a good example for me, probably they were a little strict with me but now I really appreciate the value of all this. I would like that all this could happen tomorrow but I know that need time to really understand all us. I wanted also to ask if you feel ready to have a meeting. I do want to have a meeting if possible just in april (a month enough free for me) here in my country if possible or I can also accept to move and visit you there if you will help me cause it is not so easy. I really wish to come to you soon for 2 main reasons: the first is that we really need a meeting in which we understand our personalities and in which we can feel if we can be sure to leave together for a long time in a family and the second is that I would like to try to leave in a country so different from mine. So, my dear, btter I stop writing . this is my defect never control the end of letters. Anyway, I hope you can get something good from our conversation such as i get a lot from your mails. I am close to you. Your elena PS: if possible, can you mailme soon? I like it.
Dear Elena, yadda, yadda... I asked her if she is ready to come for a visit for a month or so... Loving kisses to you Benny
Hi dear Benny, how are you today?? Of course I thought about moving abroad before come to a dating service ... here our situation not allow us to go in internet for fun ... there an only specific reason, why I prefer not loose my time. Same time I dont want create problems for you, If i come there than decide you the best moment and I will stay at home when you work while we shall spend evenings and week end totally together. For me is also well coming to argentina, you can decide about. (I Said I need to go to Argentina for business and if she was ok in joining me) I must also agree totally with you Benny, it takes time to understand if we are right person but this is why I want to start soon. I feel that you have some interest to me and I like you, so we can have a first meeting and after in summer a second ..... what can letters say? the only way is to spend hours together and try to feel. But lets also continue to chat by mail .... why not? So, Benny, have a good time there and mailme as soon as you can. Kisses elena
Hi dear Benny, GOOD MORNING!!! MY DEAR. Yesterday evening I had a lovely walk with parents, we also eat an ice cream. It seams unbelievable but the temperature is now +5 and looks spring for us. My parents trust me and they belive that if I want to try to meet you than I can do ... in reality this meeting will say if we really love and if you can like and love me so that we can start our future together or better be friends.
This morning Tanya
sent me the mail with all information about the trip but I was so busy to write to you, now I have more time. First of all visa is not a problem cause Tanya organizes touristic groups and she will keep my name inside a group, visa will be for 3 weeks from 1st of april to 20th of april. First of all the price. Flight to Miami is 740 USD + visa and insurance (195 USD). I have some few money saved but you should be able to come up with around 800 USD, is it possible?. I can understand it is not so easy but we must save more than possible there eating at home and saving more than possible. To get all in time Tanya told me you avoid to use any post service but only the Western Union system, cause American, safe and quick, you can also do all by internet.(Hmmmm...have you read this somewhere before? They must have good advertizing there)... In Tanya office they have this system but need that dad go there to pick up the transfer; this are data of dad for transfer if you agree:

Dear Elena, Good to hear from you! I am thrilled about you being able to get a visitors visa, but the 4th of April is not good for me because I have to attend a friends wedding in Grand Cayman and I wont be back home until the 9th. Also no need to send you any money because if you want to fly with Lufthansa via Frankfurt I can organize the ticket for free. You will just need to pickup the ticket at the airport ticketing counter once it is confirmed. I do need your full name, your home address and phone number in order to provide you with that. I would like to call you to have a quick chat. BTW - I forgot to ask you when is your birthday? I wanted to see what star sign you are. Im a Libra. Not that I fully believe in them but it is just for fun :-) So I look forward to your next e-mail and perhaps we can talk on the phone to organize it. Please send me more photos of you and your family and maybe send me a photo of you and Tanya together. That would be nice. Thanks. Take care for now. Benny
