I believe that it is very important for a woman to love and be loved. I have always dreamed of a big family, a big house and a big dog. And now it seems that I am close to making this dream come true! Because I work in a staff group of women, it’s hard for me to meet a man at work so I decided to try and find myself a partner on this website. This site is very convenient because it provides the opportunity to get to know and talk to a person, to decide whether you are interested in continuing communications and whether his goals and outlook coincide with yours. I looked through the men’s profiles and spotted the photo of Derrick wearing a white shirt and thought, what a good looking man he is! I love it when a man wears a shirt. I was a little shy to openly tell him that at first, because we are all a little afraid to open up our hearts but I overcame my own fear and wrote him about it! We then communicated with the help of letters which allowed us to get to know each other better. He told me about his life and that he was looking for a truly genuine wife and I really wanted to find someone who has the same goals and values as I have. How romantic it was. I waited impatiently for his letters and thought about him around the clock! It was interesting to correspond and come to understand a person little by little. Throughout the time that we communicated on the site, my heart soared and I couldn’t wait to meet Derrick. Derrick is from the USA, but he found the opportunity to fly to Ukraine to meet me. I was on the seventh heaven with happiness when he wrote to tell me that he was coming! Despite this, before the meeting, a little doubt crept in. I asked myself: what if it turned out not at all how I had planned? What if suddenly something went wrong during the meeting? I speak practically no English but the site provided us with an interpreter so that we could communicate. So, we finally met! And I was lucky, the meeting went even better than I could have imagined! I noticed immediately that he had put on that same white shirt, which we had talked about, and he admitted that he had done that on purpose. It was so sweet. I was thrilled by his attentiveness towards me. It was evident that he was genuinely interested in me, he remembered everything I had written in my letters to him. It was so interesting to get to know each other. Our meeting lasted 3 hours but flew by in an instant. A big part of the meeting’s success was that the fact that we had communicated on the site beforehand so we already had a lot of common ground from those conversations. I wanted us to walk together and to show him the park in our city center so we went to Gorky Park. It felt like we discussed everything under the sun and that we had so much in common. We both look in one direction and we have the same outlook on life. Thanks to the site, I have been able to find a man with whom I would love to create a family, in whom I see a future husband and the father of my children... and we both want to have a big dog. Everything is just like it was in my dream! Darya.
