et's begin by saying that I have a friend, yeah that's good... a ummm friend. Now this friend is fairly good-looking, not too old, retired so to speak, good health - outside of a heart attack, 3 strokes, some memory loss and clinical depression. Personally, I think this friend who also has been divorced 2 times is a real bon vivant of the world. Recently one day while minding his own business and checking his rather over-crowded email box that is usually filled with incredible offers from the viagra company and a number of people in Africa that have millions of dollars and no idea how to get the money out of the country, he received a rather strange email... from Russia:

Exactly as received:

Hello! My name is XXX. I'm 27 years old and I'm from Russia. I live in Russia now and work as an English teacher at school. Unfortunately it's impossible to find a worthy man here, so, that's why I decided to search my secong half through the Internet. Maybe it sounds silly, but I want to find my love so much! I want to tell that I'm not looking for the man who is reach with money, but with soul and heart. If you are interested by my letter, than please, write me an answer on my e-mail address: I will wait for your respond with impatience and hope!

Now my ummm friend, being cautious realized that this didn't sound like the usual great offer email that he usually receives, and wrote back, very simply:

I am interested in how you got my email address.

As you can see in the sample above, my ummm friend can be extremely provocative in his love correspondence. Now my friend claims that he completely forgot about this hot love affair he had going. Until this morning when he received the following:

Hello dear De Name withheld to protect the innocent.
How are you? Is it smile on your face? I hope so, because I'm smiling, and I'm happy to hear from you! I have to say to you, that I am new in the Internet, and I could not imagine myself, that my message to you will give result, and I'll find your letter so fast!

You surely is very interested how have I found your e-mail address. It's simple. The Internet Cafe worker had sent my letter onto 100 casual addresses that computer program had offered. I have got answers from three people - a girl from Israel, a man from China and you, my new friend. I'm not interested in women, and a man from China wasn't interested in serious relationship, and the third one is you and I would like to communicate with you. Ok, my name is xxx, I'm 27 years old, but I won't begin to re-tell to you all information, which was in my previous letter, I just want to remind you, that I'm from Russia, I was born in Russia, and I live there now. So, I live in Noginsk now, it is a small city not far from Moscow.

I was born there, but I lived in Moscow after finishing *Pedagogical academy, but I had to move to my native town, Noginsk, 2 years ago, after death of my father, because my mother needed my help. But now I think, that it was right choice, and I am not sad about it. So, I have to say, that I am sorry for so short letter, but I have to go now (frankly speaking, I thought, that you won't answer, and I came to the Internet Cafe only to check my mail), and I have to say to you, that I am very glad to keep our conversation, and feel free to ask me, what you want to know about me, I'll be happy to answer to every your questions. I am sending my picture to you, it was made year ago by my friend from Moscow, she is professional photograph, and she made few pictures of me, it was funny to feel, like professional model :) So, I am waiting for your letter, and I won't let you to wait my answer!

P.S. She sent 2 pictures of herself. She is drop dead gorgeous. The phrase hot, sizzling and smoldering doesn't even come close to describing her.

So.... I am sure by now you can see the pickle that my ummm friend finds himself... and he has asked me to turn to you, oh wise and intelligent blog surfers, to help him sort it all out.

Observations and Questions
What do you make of this? Is this an attempt to get him to part with his thousands and thousands of dollars laying in the bank? (Personally, I don't think my ummm friend has two nickles to rub together, anyway...) Is this a scheme to get my friend to marry her so she can come to the U.S. and then find out that he is way too much sexually for her 27 year old body and then divorce him? Or... is this true love?

*Pedagogical. Function: adjective: of, relating to, or befitting a teacher or education. (yeah, I had to look it up also)
