Be polite and respectful
in your letter and do not ask her about negative
things you may have heard about her country
before. It could offend her. You should wait till
you know each other better.
idioms, slang or colloquial references
and long sentences because who knows how a foreign
woman may interpret your writings.
When you write a
letter try to imagine words, phrases you would
tell her speaking on the phone or if you were
in the same room. Do not worry about things you
want to say: just tell her about your job, friends,
about the city or town you live in, what is like
to live there, what rivers or lakes are near,
what makes it unique and what its attractions
Try not to write
short letters. Tell her more about you,
your life, family, relations so she could see
your outer and inner life.
Write her about
some small things, details of your life. Do not
write about it in general. Write her what you
feel when you are lonely, when you see newly-married
or children with their happy parents and so on.
You should write
frankly and openly. Be as honest about
yourself as you can and speak from the heart.
And if she is a right woman she will appreciate
it and answer you just the same.
This will help you
put your conversation at the higher level of understanding
and to create a strong relationship. Both of you
will not waste your time in empty genteel correspondence.
Moreover it may completely change your life and
open you eyes on the things you have not seen
before. It may become an addition source of inspiration
for you and may put another vital aim before you...
