Thank you very much for your letter. I was glad to get it and I'm glad to get acquainted with you. I live in Ryazan, a nice Russian town that is situated not far from Moscow. I live with my parents. My grandfather was a military man, a pilot. My father too, but now he is retired. In my family there are representatives of different professions - doctors, teachers, officers. I'm a student of Trade University. I have many different interests. I like reading, cinema, theatre, painting. I like listening to music, meeting interesting people. I value true friendship, honesty and sincerety in relationship between people, I hate hypocrisy, lie, violence. As for my character... they say I'm kind, sincere, calm and tender. I like home, like when it is cosy and warm, clean and comfortable. I'm romantic ans I believe in love. Now I dream to meet a right man and to have a nice family. There is nothing better when you know, that there is a man who loves and understands you. And I want my future longlife partner will be my soulmate, my careful and loving husband and a kind father for our future kids. I haven't met such a man yet, I don't see such a man among people around me. It's a pity but in most of cases Russian young men are simply careless fellows. They don't want to have families. As for me, I don't look for love affairs, adventures and so on. No, I'm seriously marriage minded. What qualities I value in men? Kindness, honesty, decency, faithfulness and independence. It doesn't matter where my future longlife partner lives, if people love each other they will be able to overcome all obstacles and will be very happy together. If you are seriously minded I'll be glad to get your answer. And could you send me your pictures? Sorry for my English is far from being perfect. Tell me more about yourself, please. Don't hesitate to ask me questions. I'll answer them with pleasure.
