Salute, dear Rudi!

Don't you think that we can consider it like the beginning of something serious and may be the most important in our lives?! :) Just we both are in search and we both are searching for happiness, understanding, respect and being loved... Right? I want to introduce myself - I am a loving woman. I am a woman whose heart is full of love and passion and I am ready to share it with my only one beloved man! I want to start from telling you that I am one man woman!!! And what about you? So, so my name is Irina! Hope that you like it. As I understand it will not be difficult to pronounce my name. Just it is simple one - Irina!!!
Hope that it sounds pleasant for you. :)) Just try to pronounce it right now! .. I do hope that it is the first time but not the last one and we will pronounce each other's names lot of millions of times in future. I do hope that after knowing each other we will discover that we can be together and we can be for each other... I still dream about my man and I still hope for happiness together with him!!! I still imagine me being in my man's hugs, being kissed and passionately kissing, touching, feelings and ... loving each other. I think that there is nothing wrong if I still believe in such devoted love - love for the whole life! Are you the man who believe in such love? Are you the man who can be strong and weak the same time? Are your the man who want to please your woman and to be pleased and desired by her? Now I cross my fingers and hope for your answer, for your only one answer - 'Yes!'. If it is so, just start your answer to me from these words. I will wait for your thoughts at this e-mail address as: breathtakingirina@gmail.com

Salute, my long-awaited Rudi!

Can I tell you that time from my previous letter to you till your answer seemed to be an eternity?! Yes, I really waited for the letter from you, I really hoped to have your answer and to have your thoughts about everything that I wrote to you before. Thanks for the photos that you sent me and I want you to know that I like them all. I smiled a lot when I saw that there was my name written a lot of time in Russian. It was really pleasant. You say that you learnt Russian at school but for this time you forget almost everything. I think that may be I will be able to refresh your memory! :)) I read that your full name is Ruediger and I was really confused because I tried to pronounce it and it was impossible for me, rather difficult, but Rudi is ok and now I understand why all your friends call you like Rudi!!! :) You say that for this time you wear a beard, I looked at your photo and I tried to imagine you with it. Hope that you have a phone of yourself like you are now as my imagination did not help me to imagine you with beard! :) I like what you wrote about your hobbies, as I understand you like to cook in European style, frankly speaking I have never tasted German or Italian or French cuisine, hope that one day it will be possible for me to taste your masterpieces, as for me I cook Ukrainian dishes perfectly and may be I will also be able to cook something special for you.
By the way what was the reason that you learnt Russian in your childhood? You are lucky that you have your pets, as for me I love them a lot and I would like to have them as well, but unfortunately I have no any chance for it right now because I rent my flat and my landlord does not allow me to have any pets even a parrot! I do hope that we start the new page of our lives.
Maybe together, maybe not, but we should check it and to know each other better. We should try it as we have already stepped to the path of knowing each other and discovering each other. I am sure that you are interested to know who is Irina, what kind of person she is and what she thinks and feels... Right? I am passionate woman and may be you have already noticed it from my letters. I am easy going person and it is the reason that I feel comfortable now when I open myself for you... I am 27 years old and I will have my birthday on August. I am Lion as for to Zodiac sign. May be now you know why I have such passion as all Lions are fighters for their love!! And it is the same for me. I was born in August, 18. My mother told me that it was wonderful day and the sun was shining brightly all day long when little Irina was born! :)) Of course my mother hoped me to have such bright and sunny life all my life long. I was loved child in my family, unfortunately after my birth my mother was not able to have more children because of some complications that she had. So I was risen like a real Princess! :) I had love of my parents... Now my parents live far from me but we still try to be in touch when it is possible and that love that we had still exists between us. I would like my family to be as loving and understanding as my parents have. I think that it is very important for woman to support her man. I think that it is very important to stand by your man. So I am sure that I will act such way. And what about you? What about your family and your parents? What about your birthday? Were you risen in loving family? I think that I would like to know as more about you as possible. But in order not to bore your to die with my long letter I think that it is better to stop right now and to wait a little for your answer. I do hope that I will wait a little. :)

I close my letter with a kiss,
with great hope and fluttering heart,
Irina.

Salute, my Rudi!

Oh, how positive it is for me to have your news, to have your words, to have your thoughts and to know that you are ok there.
Sometimes when you feel that some kind of closeness becomes to appear between you and your may be soulmate there is such great wish to save it, not to lose it, to treasure it and to multiply this feeling and to have something special and unforgettable. I know that I am very big romantic, but I think that it is not bad for woman to have romantic soul! :) Thanks for the photos that you sent me, I like them for sure. your beard is nice! :) You asked me why I titled my picture as 'sadness', just when I went to the photo salon to have this photo taken I was a little bit upset by some circumstances in my life and in spite of all the attempts of the photographer to make my mood better and to make me smile I was not able to do it as I hate to wear any masks - I am who I am. So this photo was taken and it calls like sadness!
Also you made me smile when you told me that even there in Australia you have some problems with your Hlzer! :) I am sure that it is truth! Thanks that you explained me everything about your Russian, you say that you still can read, but what about writing? Also I read attentively about the place where you live, you say that you live in a big old house and it is too big for you one. But I am sure that you are not alone as you have your pets together with you, and somehow I am sure that they could be the best friends as there are no more devoted creatures in the world. I was really amazed when you told me that you had fireplace there in your house. It was one of my romantic dreams to spend some time in the evening together with my beloved near the fireplace with a glass of wine!!! And to watch fire together, I would like to listen to it as I know that it makes some sounds and they are special!!! Thanks that you sent me that article about Leo and Aquarius. I think that we can be rather passionate couple and those words that Leo takes marriage as union, stable union are true! Just I want you to know that I read attentively
everything about your job and your Vintrack project, but
unfortunately being far from it I understood nothing. I am sorry.
I think that may be later I will understand more as I understand almost nothing in programs. Just being in touch with you for some time and having that closeness that I told you about at the beginning of my letter there are a lot of things for us to discuss I think. Also I think that when you started writing to me you realized that I speak Russian and you know that I am from Slavonic country. So how is your level of Russian? Just let me know. As for me I understand that for this time we use English for staying in touch with each other and I feel a little bit guilty that in spite of your ability to speak English I have no any skills in it. I do not speak this language at all as I learnt it at school only. And for me it is not enough to write you even the message from two sentences! Just it happened that I did not find my love here in Ukraine and I think that it is the same about you and you did not find love there in your country. So I started my search for my man via the net and I clashed with such problem as language difference. I understand that may be for you it is a little bit upsetting factor. But being a real man you should not give up with us. I did not give up and I try to find English classes for myself here and to try to learn this language as I would like to speak one language with you. But till the time when I am able to do it I have to use help of people who know English professionally because at this stage of relations I do not wish to have any misunderstandings between us. I know that feelings can erase all the boundaries like language and distance and moreover we live the same planet and I think that it is not bad as well! :)) So as you understand I use the help of the professional translators. Here it is a good service and I like it. Hope that you also will like it. As they help us to stay in touch and to be together. I will wait for the thoughts from you.
I know that you have enough information to think about. I am ready to discuss everything you wish and I am sure that we will find the answer to all the questions as when we are together we are stronger!!!

I close my letter with a kiss,
with great hope and fluttering heart,
Irina.

Salute, my Rudi!

I think that it is so amazing that we are together. I think that you also miss me a little like I miss you while I do not have your words and your thoughts. It seems to me that I began to miss you and don't you think that it is a good sign?! I understand that you have some reasons for this delay, you should know that it is pleasant for me that you did not forget about me, I understand that you are a workaholic and I understand that you always need to do something. As I understand the picture that you sent me was the picture of that fireplace that you tried to finish. So I think that it is very beautiful fireplace and who knows may be one day it will be possible for me to see it with my own eyes! I am glad to know that you have no any problems with Russian, I understand that you can write and read Russian, but anyway I would like to ask you to write me the letter in Russian for the next time as I would like to see if it is possible for me to understand the level of Russian that you have, also I want you to know that it is important for me to be sure that we will not have any misunderstandings between us especially at this stage of our relations. I think that you understand that we need not to have any misunderstandings. I would like you to know that it is important for me to be with you and to know everything. I think that I had rather difficult days at my work. I am a little bit tired and exhausted. But your letters help me to recover and to forget about all the problems that I have in my life. I do not wish to bore you with my problems, but in spite of it they exist.
For this time I prefer to relax and to think about you only. It is so exciting to imagine us being together. It is so exciting for me to realize that I met such man like you. I know that there are not relations without arguing, discussions and something like this, but I think that it keeps relations alive and more passionate. I know that we also will have a lot of talks and we have a lot to tell each other as we turned only a couple of pages from our life books.. Do you agree with me? But now being a little bit exhausted I simply wish to dream and to think about my being with my man... can I call you like this? I began to think about our meeting and I even prepared some of my thoughts for you, take it like imaginations, but you can be sure that if we wish we can make them to be true. I have written out my dream of meeting you, it's as follows: The day has finally arrived. I am standing in the airport waiting breathlessly for you to step off the plane and into my arms. You arrived and we needed the time spent alone together the first time we physically meet. My first glimpse of you through the crowd takes my breath away. My heart begins pounding harder than it was already. The moisture between my thighs increases with the anticipation of what is to come. I have a few stolen moments to drink in the sight of you before you finally spot me standing alone by the window. You stop in your tracks and I see your sudden intake of breath. We stand there staring into each other's eyes for only seconds but it feels like eternity before someone bumps into you, startling you out of your trance. With slow deliberate steps you head in my direction, never once losing eye contact, navigating the crowded airport by instinct alone. When you are near me you drop your carry on bag on the floor and, not saying a word, reach out your left hand to gently touch my cheek with your palm. I close my eyes in pleasure at the feel of your hand finally on my skin. I lift my hands and place them on your chest, feeling your heart thundering in your chest, it's rhythm matching my own. I sense your movement as you lower your head and I open my eyes. You reach up with your right hand and, cupping my face in both of your hands, gently kiss my lips for the very first time. My knees are weak and my heart feels like it is going to explode. You break off the kiss and pull me into your chest. Knowing, as you always seem to, that I need to be held close. I drink in the scent of you, pressing myself against your body. You feel a sudden dampness on the front of your shirt and gently lift my head with a finger under my chin to look at you. There is no need for words; you KNOW that these are tears of sheer joy at finally being able to hold my man in my arms. We stand there holding one another for another 5 minutes or so, neither in any hurry to let go. Slowly we part, finally whispering of our feelings for one another, the first words spoken between us since you got off the plane. Keeping one arm around my shoulders you pick up your bag and we go pick up your luggage. Now we begin to hurry. Chatting about nothing in particular we walk out to where our car is parked and put your luggage in the trunk. I close the trunk and turn to you. You again lean down and kiss me. A gloriously passionate kiss that takes my breath away. We get into the car and go to the hotel that we have already checked into. The whole time you are
constantly touching me, caressing my hair, my face, my
shoulders...always touching. When we arrive we unload your luggage from the trunk of the car and take it into the room.
Inside the room we drop the luggage on the floor and lock the door. I kick off my shoes and turn to you. I see that you have taken yours off as well. I step over to you and whisper softly 'I missed you, .'

I close my letter with a kiss,
with great hope and fluttering heart,
Irina.
