Marina Alexei Michailova

I am a 44 year old divorced mail from Texas, USA. I have been alone for 4 years and Marina was the first women that I had had such communication with that had caused my heart to overrule my brain. The contact originated from Marina and I had an address ( to reply to. Seeing as I was not a paid member of any dating service, I found this to be a great opportunity to communicate with someone in another country. The communication began in November 2002 and is now abouy to end (March 19, 2003). Marinas letters began just as you listed (boy that hurt) but of course developed slowly over the past 5 months to a much further point. I believed we fell in love and as much as my logic said "not possible", my lonliness allowed my heart to make bad decisions. I sent her $500.00 towards visa and airfare and was to send more. Started my search as my logic caught up finally (read about visas etc. and things did not ad up). Other clues included trying to get responses at times and specific questions addressed. Could not get a phone number to make personal contact as well. 

The money was handled via Western Union to Guta Bank in Ekaterinburg. She received money as I confirmed with service and she also let me know. The money was sent under Alexei Michailova's name (which I guess is her actual Husband?).

Seeing as I just now found out how foolish I was, I have not notified any agency. Absolute Agency is where she found me but I am not a paying member so do not know if I should do anything. I have photos (one you have and others) and some letters only (got new computer and lost some earlier ones). Would be glad to help in any other way if you request. I am not a well off person at all and this makes my error even more ridiculous but glad to know now.

Regina Podgornova (Surgut, Russia)

I have here what I believe to be a scammer. Thiswoman or whoever goes by the name of Regina Podgornova. Apparently she lives in Surgut Russia. I have been recieveing all kinds of letters describing how much she feels that she wants to come to the states. She has told me how much the Visa will cost (Tourist B1/B2) and how she can not wait to be in my arms. I have sent no money to date. The reason I believe this to be a scam is if she lives in Surgut Russia; The time difference is 10 hours between Central New York and Surgut Russia. The letters I have recieved have only a 6 hour difference. These letters are written at all times when you would think most people would be in bed. I send along the letters I have recieved along with many pictures for your awarness.The other thing I would like to mention is when I revealed to this person that I know what goes on in Russia with these scams she became very indignant as stated in one of her letters.  Please look into this matter and beware. I will forward the saved letters that I have recieved. I have more but I didn't save them because at the time I thought this all to be real. I will forward all I have saved. Thank you Sincerely Tom

Regina Podgornova (Belyy yar khanty- mansi Russia)

Hello I am Kevin Storey, I was sent a email from the above person from a ad on and after reading your info,I bought  the guide and confronted her or him they sent me a virus i suppose in hopes of ruining my computer. So that I could not report it to you. The emails went on for about 3 weeks, she sounded to good to be true and so I started searching around and found this site, using the search engine google. Thank You for your help and saving me who knows what. 


Hi my dear and the far friend Kevin! (Privet, moy dorogoy i dalekiy drug Kevin!) Today I went for work, admired the nature and thought of you. I very romantic lady. I like to search for romanticism in everything, even in simple both ordinary things and situations. I very much love the nature. I love all seasons. I love autumn. I like yellow leaves, gold trees. I like to go in the park when the fallen leaves rustle under the feet, when the wind brings the smell of arriving winter and  the leaves rise upwards and slowly fall, dancing a waltz above the people. It is wonderful when the clouds are floating in the sky and there are birds which depart to the warm countries. And at night the sky starts to cry. The rain knocks on windows and roofs. The lightning in shares of second illuminate the empty streets. It is fine. In such weather it would be desirable to appear in a small room with a warm fireplace. Weak light and singing of a cricket. And if there will be a favourite person near, it will be similar to paradise. I love winter though sometimes it happens very coldly. I as everything, wait summer in the winter. But anyway it is  beautiful in winter. Especially when there is snow on trees. All the world around - white. Only fur-trees with the green clothes heat a look and brings the difference to the white color. And when the snow falls, it bewitches, especially in the evening when light flows from a windows, and  on a background of the black sky - small snowflakes are similar to stars. If you look at the sky for a long time - it seems that you flies through these wonderful snowflakes towards to something unknown. I love spring. It seems that the world is born again. All comes to life. Air is filled with freshness. The snow melts and all troubles and failures melt with it. There is a desire to throw off from itself all weariness and all griefs. The streamlets are singing cheerfully everywhere. The Earth becomes covered by a  grass and flowers. In Russia we say - the love was born in the spring. The summer is a fine mood, the desire to learn the world, to have a rest and enjoy a life. The summer is a wood, a night fire, the river, stars, a warm wind, a long-awaited rain, the beautiful blue sky and the sun which gives pleasure.  I like the sea foodstuffs Many thanks I love a flower. Kisses, Regina. Celuyu, Regina(Russian).

Hi, Kevin (English) Privet, Kevin (Russia) I'm very glad to see your letter and I think you will glad to see my too. I had a dreams about you Kevin I really want to know you, speak with you, take your hand and see your eyes. Maybe it's very frankly now but it's true and I don't want to hide it. I always say the true and don't like when the people are lie. I hate it. I like to dream very much. I do not know well if it is good or bad. But I am a dreamer. Since the childhood I have dreamt very much. I remember my teacher in the kindergarten told us: "Forget about your dreams!" She said that dreams do not bring happiness. She said that dreams bring only a pain and disappointment. May be she was right. In fact dreams don't always come true. It happens that you put all forces and all aspiration to achieve the purposes. But often it is not enough. Not all in this life depends on us. There is still a Destiny! Its strong and invisible hands easily reshuffle lives and hearts of people. And then the dream stops to be desirable star, when it doesn't come true for a long time. But anyway, I think that it is impossible to live not having the dreams and hopes. When you have a dream, the life is filled with sense. When there is a dream, the life becomes more interesting and more various. You start to think, analyze, choose and to make the decision. And each small victory, each defeated obstacle in a way to your dream, each next step to your dream brings you great pleasure. Your heart is filled with belief and hope. And you are inspired by the fact which waits for you in the end. You remember the pleasure of victories and defeated aims better than pain of losses and disappointments. For this reason I like to dream, though my dreams come true very seldom. I am surprised, that I am writing you all this. I have never had the person with whom I could share the ideas. But now I have found you, Kevin, and I am very glad. You are a part of my life now. And I appreciate it very much. Kevin, you became very important for me. And being frank, I am afraid to lose you. Forgive me for my frankness. If I have offended you somehow, or have caused inconveniences forgive me please. Do not cease to write to me. Write to me every day. Even if I cannot answer every day. Your letters betray to me of forces and my day is filled with pleasure. I hope that you do not become angry. I will wait for your letter with impatience. And now I want to ask to you some questions: I heard that in the USA many tornado, is it the truth? Do you believe in love? Love at first sight?  Poka moy dorogoy drug. (Russia) By my dear friend. (English) P.S. This picture has been taken on my last birthday. 

Hi my beloved Kevin.Today I went to my work and smiled. I smiled because I knew that I would get a letter fro you. People passed near me and looked back after me. In Russia ladies smile rarely, because lifi is filled with different problems, cares, difficulties and obstacles. All tih prevails under little fortunes which the lady has in her life. In Russia the lady stands on the same stage as the man already for a long time. She can do the same work as the man can. Very often In Russia the lady does the work which the man has to do. In 19 century one Russia poet wrote about Russian woman: She can enter a burning house and stop a running horse. The only thing she lacks is simple warm and caress, which she are to get from man. This is the problem of Russian men. The Russian lady does everything for the man but she doesn't get anything from him. All she needs is at least a couple of tender words and touching of his hands. If it isn't so difficult? If it isn't difficult to present your lady a romantic evening and a  supper with candles. In Russia as a rule a woman makes such a present but not a man.  When a woman carry heavy bags in the street no man will help her, he will only turn his look away and go farther. That's why the Russian lady never feels happy at her heart.  You say that I am beautiful. In Russia I am not considered like a beautiful lady, Russian men usually treat ladies disrespectfully. They consider that woman only have to work, cook, wash cloths and entertain the man when he wants. For the Russian man it is a usual thing to offed a woman. I like to cook and wash cloths but sometimes I would like to get simple caress, love and attention. I don't want to offend all the men, there good men but there are few of them. We had good time together. He was kind. But he liked to drink. When he was drunked he became an absolutely other person. He talked with me with bad words. With the time his love to alcohol becama a habbit. He  became alien person- rude and evil. He even several times beat me and next day he smiled and talked with me as if nothing happened. I began to be afraid of him and I have to part with him. My soul was wounded very much. After this I couldn't make me get acquainted with another man. Now I don't trust Russian men. I am afraid to give my love to somebody and get rudeness back.  Many thanks I love a flower. You could strike the woman?  Much love from Regina!!! Get many kisses!!! God Bless and Protect Us. P.S. This picture has been taken the last year, in my village.

Hi(English), Kevin!!!!!!! Privet(Russian), Kevin!!!!!!! I beg you please forgive me, that I didn't answer your letter earlier. As you know, I don't have a computer at home and that's why I am writing you from my job. My job is in Surgut(it's a 25 km by the bus from Belyy Yar). But it is not easy too, because my boss doesn't let use the computer with private purposes. There is only one computer at my job. Therefore it's always occupied with someone on work. We do not have unlimited Internet access on a work, because we don't need in it. I use computer secretly to write you(when my boss is not at the office). Internet is expensive in Russia. Some months ago, when I was looking for my relatives with the help of Internet, my boss has subtracted from my salary all the expenses for the Internet. Unfortunately I haven't found anybody. I work from Monday till Friday. Therefore I cannot write you on a weekend. Sometimes I feel very lonely in a weekend, being one at home. I have few friends. But now I have found you, Kevin! I am very glad and I shall think of you. For my life I look for a person, who can become for me a husband, friend, lover and protector. I need in man, who will fill emptiness in my soul, and I will fill emptiness in his soul. I want him to support me in a difficult minute and I can support him. To tell the truth, a person needs few things to become happy. It takes much more time to find an appropriate man. Likely the main thing that does not suffice me now is love. Without love of persons it may not be happy. But when near there is a close person whom you love, life becomes fine irrespective of where you live and that you have. I try to be afflicted never. But the loneliness frequently forces to sadly. I tried to find love and happiness here, but I have tested man's roughness and disrespect. It has wounded me. I want to find the partner in life, together to enjoy life and to go in the future. I want to find the man, with whom we shall create the world of love, kindness and honesty. In the guy I want to see honesty and kindness. This main thing because the lie and a rage spoil any relations. I like cheerful people. I do not love men who do not have self-respect. I want to find the guy who in reply to my love will present me his love. The heart of the man is most important. I want to be honest and frank with you, that's why I ask you not to deceive me. There is a proverb in Russia: Bitter truth is better than sweet lie. I am sure that you are an honest man and you can't lie. Am I right? After all my stories you may think, that everything is bad, but it is not true. When I lived in orphanage one elderely person came to us. Her name was Masha and she brought us different cloths and gave money to the orphanage. We were great friends with her. When I have grown up and have left the orphanage, our friendship became bigger. Now I helped her: I went shopping for products, I lead her to the hospital ( she was an old and sick person), I kept her house and looked after her. Two years ago when she was 79 years old she died. She was a Great person. Masha was a very intellectual and educated woman. She taught me many things: how to lay the table correctly, how to behave at the table, to put the tablewears, to behave in mundane society and many other things. She taught me manner be dressed and go correct and beautifully. Also she taught me to sew and kneet, how people do it in Russia long ago. All her knowledge she has got from her ancestors. She loved me like a daughter and I loved her like my mother. She didn't have her own children and her husband died during Second World War. After his death she didn't married again, because she has loved only him. Masha has bequeathed me everything that she had: this is an apartment and old-time jewelry which she has got from her great-grandmother. This is a very beautiful necklace ring set with a stone and bracelet. This is a historical value, and I cherish it very much. It is very offensive for Russia. When Russia loses such people such as Masha, it's loses the particle of its great culture. Thank you for a beautiful picture. I loved it. I would like to see other your pictures. Dogs really very much funny. Now I must finish my letter. I wait anxiously for your answer. Also I want to ask, have you ever had a friend from the other country? Yours friend Regina.

Hi, my dear friend Kevin I waited for this minute with impatience to answer you.  Your letters have become so close to my heart that I am glad to them like a baby. you write so beautiful letteres, I have never heard such words in Russia. I think that Russian men don't know such words at all. Your words are so pleasant that I feel myself on the heavens. Please, write me every day at least two words, then I will know that everything is OK. I will be calm for you and won't worry.  Yesterday I talked with my boss, I asked him to use Internet at least 10-15 minutes a day. He promised to think about it. I cant let him deprive me my private live how much it cost me. The dearest I have is you Kevin I understood it clearly yesterday when I was walking in the park and thinking about you. I was tired and sat down on the bench. I closed my eyes and thought about you. A wind was blowing, it scutched my hairs and enveloped my body by its chilly freshness. I don't know why, but I thought that you changed in wind, and you tenderly touched my hairs with you invisible hands. It seemed to me that I am situated somewhere there with you. And my heart began beating as never before. I was so pleasant that I was ready to yell from happiness. People who were passing near me probably thought that I am crazy wnen they saw me sitting on the bench with closed eye and smiling. But I didn't think about their opinion. I not for a long time sat, it was very cold. But I so would not like to leave. I consider that all peple in love are a little mad.  Love is such intoxicating narcotic, which makes do mad, but sometimes funny actions.  Only person in love can fill the whole bath with champaign, only person in love can present the million of scarlet roses or stand whole night under balcony of the loved woman singing serenades. I should finish the letter. I having not enough time. Answer me one question. You the quick-tempered person? Many thanks I love a flower.I would like to visit the USA once. . I hope you have a nice weekend also  P.S. Unfortunately in my work the scanner has broken. I shall wait when will repair the scanner and I shall send again pictures. I am shy, but hotly kiss Kevin. Regina. 

Privet moya lyubov. (Russia) Hi my love. (English) How are you, my love Kevin? When I see your letter, my heart is similar to a bird in a cage. Wants to depart a breast and to fly to you. I never experience before similar. I want to tell a history which I had yesterday. I have the big soft toy, a young lion. It is my unique and the toy is favourite. I very much love her. This toy at me 2 years. And all this time I as could  not think up a name for her. I tried many names. I do not know why, but any  name was not pleasant to me. But yesterday when I went to bed as usually  I have put her near to me. I have looked at her and have casually made  your name Kevin. It has very much approached a young lion.  Now I call him Kevin and constantly I think of you. I'm missing you. When I go to bed I'm thinking about you. I'm thinking about your letters. I think how it's good that I have met you in the Internet. If I was told before, that I will meet my love in the Internet, I would not believe this man. I would think, that this man is crazy or joker. But it has happened. It has happened not to somebody but to me. And I'm glad that the people invented the Internet. I didn't think that it's possible to find my only love in the Internet. But I have found. Please, don't give me up. It will be a strong pain for me. I won't simply go through it. But I believe that you won't do it.  Excuse me for this short letter. But today I have hardly found an opportunity to write even slightly. With all my love. (English) So vsey moey lyubov`yu. (Russia) Many thanks I love a flower. ( I Love Kevin ) ( With all my heart) ( And all my soul )  P.S. This picture has been taken in 2000 year. Near me, my friend Sveta. Now she married, and lives in the other city. We on a background of church in Surgut.  

Hi Kevin! I am very glad that I have chosen you from all the others who were at the site. I had no a lot of time to look all profiles on a site. I have chosen the first profile which has liked me. Probably my hand was directed with success. It was experiment. I have caught fortune for its tail. Smile!!! I work as a bookkeeper in Surgut in firm of household chemical goods. I'm a bookkeeper and I communicate with different people of different age.  I noticed that I better speak with the people who older than me. They are more polite, intelligent and suave, so it is possible to hear bad words from young people, they are louts and boors. I never have been married and I want to marry the men who is older than I. I am sure that men of this age are good husbands and fathers. I have no children but I would like to have many of them. I think that I would be a good mother. I have never seen my parents. I grew in the orphanage where there was lack of warm of parents. I know, how it is difficult to not have a close people. I am ready to give everything for my future husband and children. They won't be lonely, because I will encircle them with warm and love. Living in orphanage I understood the real values of the life: do kindness to people and it will come back to you doubled. There are a lot of problems in Russia. People became evil and closed. That's why I decided to find a friend abroad Russia. So I have told you my dreams. May be they will not come true but these are my dreams. And what about your dreams? I like my job; I spend much time in the gymnasium, doing aerobics and shaping. I often walk in the forest; I like to listen to classical music. All it distract me from everyday problems. So what do you do, when you have problems and when you are sad? I would like to see your own picture. I wait for your Kevin letter. GOOD LUCK!!! Yours friend Regina. P.S.In this picture, I on coast of river Ob '. 

Hi my heart and my soul Kevin! My working day has finished and I'm hurrying to write you a letter. It's so nice to get letters from you. This morning I didn't go to my job, because this morning I flew to my job. Today I came to my job beforehand. And I was first who came to the office. And I was happy all the day. My colleagues were surprised. They have asked me why I'm so happy. And I have simply answered, that I have good mood. When I read your letter, my heart sang. You my heart, you my soul, you my love and you my life. We can correspond years any letters cannot replace pleasure of a meeting face to face. In Russia speak: to understand cold water whether or not, it is necessary enter the river. It means that If not to check up feelings, never find out that it was. I need you; I want to be near you. I want to feel your breath. I want to embrace you. I want to kiss you. My lips will touch yours and your lips will touch mine. I don't know, what's happened with me. It didn't happen to me before. I do not want to waste time. Now I have time vacation and a little money. I have found the necessary documents and went to the company that deals with making the visas in our town. I asked how long time it will take to make the visa. I was answered that it will take about one week. May be 2 weeks if there will be some troubles. I have asked, whether there will be troubles with visa, because there were the terrible terrorist actions in USA. I was answered that they will ask information about me in the police. And if in the police they will be answered that I the law-abiding citizen, I shall get the visa. I have never outraged the law. And I have never done anything unlawful. So I must get the visa. To me advised to use tourist visa B1/B2. My visa will allow me to be in the USA 6 months. It will cost to me 335 USD. It is certainly expensive, but any money of will not replace you to me. Many thanks I love a flower. ( I Love Kevin ) ( With all my heart) ( And all my soul ) Our love will overcome any distances. Live for LOVE! When you Love, do it with all your might, all your Devotion  and for all eternity! I really think it's better to love and fail and not having fallen in love at all.  Since I started talking to you, I just can't stop thinking of you Kevin. 

Hi Kevin! I have got your letter. Thank you, that you have found time for the reply. First of all I want to apologize for non-answering sooner. Past time I have been really busy, also I do not have computer at home. But now I have some free time and we can talk. OK, let's go. My full name is Regina Podgornova. I have brown eyes and dark-brown hair. My height is 168 cm (probably it's about 5 feet and 6 inches). I was born on January 2 (Astrological sign is Capricorn) 1976 in village called Belyy Yar, Khanty-Mansi, Russia. Belyy Yar is located in 25 km from city called Surgut. I have lived here all my life and I never was outside Russia. But I like the USA because it is the great and beautiful state. I want to find out more about this country and about people who live there. Though I never visited the USA, but I much watched TV about this country. Americans are Great Nation. I was familiar with group of the American students, who have trained for one month in Russia, at the university where I studied. I liked American people. One American girl from this group has helped me to register a profile on a Dating Site. I was not able to do it myself, because I know a computer at the lowest level. Yesterday she has left for the Great Britain to continue her training. And I would like, to find new friend, but now I would like to find the boyfriend (smile). For this reason I began to study the English language strenuously. But I still know English not so superb. Nevertheless I study it constantly. Also I almost do not know American slang(sleng?). I'm dated through the Internet for the first time, therefore I apologize, if I have made something incorrectly. If you have any questions, you can ask me. I will try to answer them. I thank you beforehand. I wait with impatience for your reply. Sincerely,  Regina. P.S. I have attached my pic as I promised.

Ruclanu Abbvacov

last month I got a letter from Ruclanu.after several weeks of corresponding she sent me the flight info. as you can tell by her letters she had me fooled. she ask me on 2/6/03 she ask me to send her 230 dollars for her fathers funeral, I sent her $310.00 in good faith that she was truthful. then on 2/12/03 she ask me to send her $210.00. at that time I was unable to send it. on 2/21.03 she then ask me to send her $410.00 or her company would not be able to send her to America. all these times she ask me to send it western union. I went to the nearest western union and sent her $410.00 and when I went home I noticed I had misspelled her last name. I called western union and the operator told me of the scams that's been going on.  I went to the Internet and went surfing and found this site. I found some letters that was on it from a girl named Ruslanu and they said just about the same thing as my letters said to me. I started thinking my God how many times does a person's father die? luckily I saved each and every letter she had wrote me, even the first on she wrote me on I am a divorced white male, 36 years old, 3 kids by my last wife, and work as a trucker. Please put my story in your black list so others might be saved like I was. Thanks to black list I was saved $410.00

Alena Fedorovskaya (Ekaterinburg, Russia)

Hello everyone, Well, here she is again! Apparently still alive and well and continues to work her scams.  Most recently now (with one of her original photos) back again on and she is using the screen name of "shimm37" from Ekaterinburg, Russia.  As I have mentioned in other letters which I have written to the antiscam sites I find it noteworthy to mention it again. She and her ring of scammers are currently being investigated by the police. If any of you out there have been scammed by her (she has many aliases) please contact me ASAP. I will help you to file a claim with the police in Ekaterinburg. ( I have recently returned from a trip over there) The police desperately need our help. They can NOT prosecute successfully without real claims. My email address is Good luck to you all! Paul K.

Svetlana Vedernikova (Chelyabinsk, Russia)

She contacted me thru yahoo personals. The letters began on1/25/2003 until 3/15/2003. After a few get to know me letters she stated an interest of coming to the US and the possibility of us getting together. There were 26 letters in all plus 10 photos. The story ended when she stated she came up $213 short for airfare so I sent her $300.00. After that ,she stated she needed $250.00 more for travel insurance. When I questioned that, she did not respond and has since closed her email account. sincerely, Raymond 

Svetlana Vedernikova (Chelyabinsk, Russia)

I recently ordered your document on how to avoid scams...Fantastic!!!!!!! Could you help me please.. I posted an ad on Yahoo personals and a Russian woman just answered my ad out of the blue.  We corresponded for about two months.  She told me how much she loved me and wanted to be with me.  She asked me for $187 for her Labor Visa.  Regretfully I gave it to her because I really thought in my heart she loved me.  I was very brokenhearted.  She just simply stopped emailing me. I think it's justified that I give her name and address: 

Beware of this one……….

World of Love Agency, Anna Perova

I am attaching letters and photos,,with address and name information of a recent scam. The nature of the scam is a little different. I am aware of scams and have received a number of them from individuals..but this was kind of a team effort. The letter comes from a girl named Olga…she sends five or six photo's to start. The Intro-letter is very innocent and sweet. She states she is interested in only a nice husband to love and not interested in money. After a few letters and more than a dozen photo's that will knock your eyes out…she is nothing but a perfect beautiful woman. She is in love and sends some very provocative letters, photo's and poetry. In the mean time the "Marriage Agency" she is supposedly with let's you know they are able and willing to provide you with services that will get your beautiful girl at your side quickly. They will take care of all the paper work for Visa, Pass Port, Air Fair and all you need to do is pay the fee and costs…$1,300…sounds good…unless you already realize that no Marriage Agency would be able to do what they claim. No one can get a passport, Visa,,in three days…and no one can get a single, attractive Russian woman a Visa to the US…they don't do it. So I knew this was a Scam but I let it play out….and sure enough "Olga" let me know she could come to me if I would send the money…….in all the letters…she never answered pertinent questions…like Where in Russia did she live…..What was her last name? and nothing about her family. So, I finally receive a strange letter about how Olga is raking leaves and is hot..and the color of the leaves are so bright and, orange etc..etc….I quess the scammers pulled the wrong letter from the wrong pile and sent it….It is Winter in Russia and I get a love letter about my sweetie is raking leaves in the Fall…Opps…So I informed the Agency that the game was up. Then I receive a lame letter stating that poor Olga owed $90. and if I wished to continue writing to her I would need to pay the bill. How nuts can people get? Anyway I have a feeling these people or person has scammed a lot of innocent men….and they need to be blacklisted and hopefully busted and jailed…I did not send any money because the red flags went off and even though I felt it would be worth any amount to meet and have a romance with this beautiful woman…I knew it was bullshit….she sends over twenty photo's and the last is the killer …her in a bathroom on the counter with her legs spread…her fingers touching herself with a very seductive look….." here I am just for you"…thanks Ray


Hello Dear Ray !!! Thank you very much for your letter, you are first man who seriously enterested with me. I was very glad to get your letter in our marriage agency. I am admired with you !!! Where are you from and what is your full name ? Let me write you my biography. I was born in Russia. I have finished school 11 classes, then has arrived in university, I have got the diploma. But my trade became unnecessary, I could not find long time work. I did not require money, but it was interesting to me to work, to communicate with the people and to be typed of vital experience. I have found work in one half-year, I worked the waitress in the Korean restaurant, it was interesting, but heavy work... I received good money in comparison with general earnings in our country in that time. But I have understood, that when will pass youth, I can not work in such place and I have decided(solved) to continue my education. As in that time the training in our country became paid, it was difficult. But I do not see my life here, as I search for the husband, I shall follow him, where he will wish. Dear Ray, i intend to meet serious man for relation.It don't mean for me nation or age. Just a little love, and happy future of my children. I intend that you has serious intentions... Sorry for my bad english. Take my pic. Waiting your answer, Olga. P.S. DEAR DON'T SEND ME LARGE IMAGES PLEASE,HERE ARE MANY PROBLEMS WITH GETTING IMAGES MORE THAN 50Kb WITH OUR SLOW INTERNET !!!

I put my arms around his body. Hi presses his sensual lips against mine and whisper that heloves me. I tell him that I love him too and that he is the most fantastic and beautiful man in this world. Later I will make healthy brekfast and tea for two. I bring the tray from the kitchen into our sleeping room with juice, tea, jam, etc., He smiles to me and tell me that I am the most wonderful woman in this world. I feel so happy inside, as I (just as he) like to be reminded again and again that I am his best girlfriends, loyal wife and most sexy and hot lover in bed. We always put much attention to each others well - being. After breakfast, hi gives me so much joy and good feeligns. Our love is so romantic and beautiful, the only thing I can not live without. We really understand how to please each other and make the other person very happy. All the time, we are extremely close together, after a while our bodies become like one. Your soft hands always in mine, your sensual lips belong to me only, your eyes will be the mirror of our eternal love. I am an incurable romantic. Actually love is the only thing that matter in life. I know about love and erotic. I am sad when you are sad, I can not smile without you, I am only happy  when you are happy. I have only one wich. That you, my sweet darling will be the man in my dream. I can't wait when we will be together !!! When it will happen ???????? Lots of love, Olga.  p.s. A lyric from a nice song: 

You said some winds blow forever 
And I didn't understand 
But you saw my eyes were asking 
And smiling you took my hands 

So we walked along the seaside 
Where trees grow just one way 
Finding out the one direction 
That the wind blows day after day 

One way wind, one way wind 
Are you trying to blow my mind 
One way wind, one way wind 
Is she her that I hope to find 
Why you blow the colds everyday 
Tell me what are you trying to say 

No I don't know all about you 
And maybe I never will 
But I do know every word of 
Our talking upon the hill 
And whenever I will see you 
For maybe one more time 
I'm sure I'll get the answer that the wind has still in mind
