Composing your initial letter of introduction can be a challenging endeavor.
"Where do I begin," is a question often asked. "I've never done
anything like this before," is also a frequent new-client comment. Well,
we have created this page to offer you some very constructive suggestions about
creating your letter of introduction and foreign correspondence in general.
It would seem reasonable to tailor your first letter towards some of the specific
personal information that each lady has provided at the time that they registered
with our company. Yet based upon A Volga Girl's
long-standing guarantee to issue our clients an additional lady's profile and email credit for every instance where a lady will either decline your initial invitation
to correspond (after having read your letter and viewed your photos), is no
longer interested in being profiled on our web site, or can no longer be reached
and in unavailable.
In such instances, the time and difficulty involved with drafting repeated letters-of-introduction
might simply be enough to elicit the feeling that, "I knew that this was
not going to work ....". Therefore, creating an interesting and descriptive
letter of introduction that reveals some of the more common personal and biographical
information that is usually exchanged early-on in the initial writing phase
of your relationships is your first investment toward finding a suitable Russian
For all correspondence sent through your account once your have created your
private account by registering a user name and password, you will notice that
above the text-box where you will type your letters, you are prompted with the
question, "Does her level of English require language translation?"
The default here is always set to "no," and we strongly suggest that
unless a lady has self-reported herself either a level
4 or level 5 in English proficiency, that you change this setting to "yes,"
but only when sending your 1st letter of introduction. Thereafter, when submitting
all additional first letters -- you can leave the default setting to "no,"
and the professional
translation staff in our Togliatti office will recognize that this is your
previously translated letter of introduction, and will use the previous translation
as their reference. But .... please remember to change each lady's first name
at the top of the letter. Mentioning her name throughout the letter proves problematic
for the translation staff and makes it more difficult for you to take advantage
guarantee policy (of saving monies) when it comes to first-letters and the
issuance of account credits when necessary. We strongly advise against having
a lady struggle to personally translate your
first letter. Such a circumstance in no way works toward providing the type
of first impression that we trust you would all wish to make.
While finding ladies that will respond to your invitation to correspond is usually
not exceedingly difficult -- finding the lady that you will feel most suitable
with is a more complex variant. it is for this reason that we suggest examining
some of our Lady's Profile Package Plans that will allow you to send out numerous letters of introduction
(please keep in mind once again that you will only be paying to translate that
initial contact one time) in order to narrow your field of candidates down within
the first, second, or third round of letters exchanged. As you work toward determining
which three or four ladies you will continue to correspond with through the
culmination of your actual trip to Togliatti (where our Russian based office
is located) you can begin to respond directly to discussion subjects including
personal interests, hobbies, future dreams and aspirations, and all matters
family and marriage.
All translated letters submitted through your account on our web site are delivered
in both an English and Russian language format. Additionally, we
strongly recommend uploading at least a few good photos of yourself to your
personal account so each lady lady you have contacted can either view them within
your account. Making a first contact
without providing the option of viewing your photo(s) makes the decision to
accept your invitation to correspond simply "a throw of the dice."
We choose to correspond with these Russian ladies in large part based upon viewing
their photos. Experience has shown us that these ladies are no different than
Below for your review and careful consideration we have provided
you with a good industry-standard letter of introduction. You by all means
have the option of adjusting or changing this letter as you see fit. The letter
is simply provided for your benefit, but please keep in mind that the more
open and honest that you can be in a first letter, the more likely that the
ladies with whom you are inviting to correspond will answer in-kind.

Your New Friend,
Some Additional Letter Writing Advice and Information
girls that you write to increases your options for the future. While
it may only be a short time before you develop "favorites," it
is suggested that you initially play the percentages. Finding a Russian
wife is a very serious endeavor and it is important to overcome previously
held values and beliefs about handling "one-at-a-time." The world
of foreign correspondence is a quite different circumstance than dating
one or two ladies that live down the street. Remember that you will be traveling
thousands of miles/kilometres to meet these ladies. Stay focused on your goal.
While it is always important to be honest in in your correspondence,
it is an extreme tactical mistake to bare your entire relationship history
within the bodies of your first few letters. It is wholly inappropriate
to explain in detail the circumstances responsible for failed past relationships.
However, we suggest that you do share that you have previously been married
and the number of children that you might now have. There is always time
to share other details once you have established a stronger rapport, friendship
& level of understanding with each respective Russian lady with whom
Do not delete past letters from your account on our web
site unless you are sure that you have stopped all correspondence with a
particular lady. It is an uncanny truth, but you never know which one of
these Russian girls may eventually become Mrs. You. The copies of your letters
will be necessary later when you apply for a Fiancée/Partner, etc Visa and once
the two of you have met in-person. This site was specifically designed with
a database that saves all of the correspondence you have ever sent or received.
You can access past correspondence any time by clicking through the "view
messages" button within your Account Showcase.
Please do not promise to
visit Russia unless you truly intend to do so.
We strongly urge you "to
say goodbye" if it is your intention to stop writing to any particular
Russian girl profiled on this site. Our office staff in Togliatti does
instruct these Russian girls to do the same. The women profiled on A
Volga Girl are quite sincere and can easily become attached. The saving
of any ones feelings is the decent and right thing to do.
Please note that we don't allow clients to send their email address, phone number and social websites contact information, etc. through their A Volga Girl account via our message writing service. This policy is necessary since the primary source of income to our company is via letter writing and translations.
