Nice to hear from you again!Thanks for your kind letter.I really
liked it.I've never been abroad and I don't have a big experience here..I'm stil looking for my half here.I want to ask you a question that is very important to me:what motivates you in life?Is it work,money,family,love or something else?As forme,my motivation in life is feelings.They make everything for me..Only having a person to share my soul,my good and bad moments,I can be happy and live in a harmony with myself,and that's tha most important thing in my life. You know,life is impossible without love,to my mind.We all want to love and to be loved, almost everybody feels love to another person,but it's hard to explain,what love is.And I'm very interested in your thoughts about this question.And I'll try to explain you my mind.So for me love is something extraordinary and exciting.'Terra incognita' as Romans say is the best describing of relationship between men and women.How many times have you felt love in your life?As for me,I don't know..Maybe it was it,or maybe not..Something changed in my heart,but I do hope that the real feelings are in the near future.I believe that if you feel a love to another person,your heart is trembling pleasantly and your soul is singing.When you feel love,it fills you with only pleasant emotions.You know,life is full of difficulties and disappointments,and if love brings something bad,it shouldn't be so..Rather chaotic thoughts,right?:)but I really tried to explain everything sincerely..
Gabor,it'd be great ig you tell me more about your character,your inner world.For me is very important my man to be kind-hearted and supportive person,a really good friend,loving husband and passionate lover.If he treats me like a queen,I'll do everything to make him the happiest person in the world!And as for me,I'm a little bit noughty and self-willed:),but in general,an easy-going and open-minded person with a kind heart and romantic soul,and if I really fall in love with you,the world would melt around us,so warm and strong it'll be.Afraid being in a fire?:)I believe,no.. So I'll be waiting for your next letter
Take care,don't forget to write,

It's me,Katerina,a girl with a nice smile
and silky hear..Thanks a lot for get
interested in me.I'm very glad to answer
you!I do believe we'll have a lot in
common and be able to become really good
friends and,who knows,maybe more..You may
ask why I'm here?Ok,I want to find my true
second half and build a really strong
relations,full of love and passion with the
man of my dreams.My future man must simply
be the best in the world for me:)
Accept my challenge?If yes,I'll do the same
for you..But first of all we should get to
know closer and here some facts about me
for you to make a first impression.
So I'm a 23 year-old girl with a kind heart
and romantic soul.I was born in a small
town Khmilnyk in western Ukraine,
Vinnitskaya region.I live with my parents
and my younger brother in a flat in the
center of the town.Last year I finished
Pedagogical college and now I've just
started working in our local school as an
English teacher.I like my job,as working
with children is always nice,but it's not
everything I wanted in life.Working as a
forign language teacher,I read a lot about
different countries and cultures,and now my
cherished dream is to travel round the
world,visiting different places,getting to
know with peole.It's very exiting,isn't
it?but being a romantic person I think that
it'd be better to do this together with my
partner:)Do you like travelling?Where
have you been?I want to know everything
about you:what you do in life,your dreams and goals,your usual
time spending..
I also have a lot of good friends.We like
to spend time together,going to clubs and
cafes,for picknics and camping.Sometimes
they wonder why I'm still alone,but for me
it's very intimate and important question,
as I think I shouldn't be in a hurry with
this,and my future love will wait for me
whenever we decide to meet..
And what things are important
for you in a person?What do you want to
find in your future woman?..
Maybe too much questions for the first
letter?:)Ok,let's go step by step..
I'll be impatiently waiting for your answer.Write me soon.
Take care,
Yours sincerely,
