Riassunto: Eastern Europe. Unemployment, poverty, chaos. A young woman with a PhD finds herself on the streets. She can beg, she can die from hunger, or she can start writing letters. Using the Internet and numerous dating sites she is looking for a man to marry. She dreams about a happy family life. But the men she meets are looking only for sex, sightseeing and visas. Embittered and disappointed, she becomes a woman who lives off men. Not a woman who sleeps with men for money but a professional fiancée. Funny, quick-witted, sensitive and plucky, she cleans men's pockets and goes through life light-heartedly. From a badly dressed, poor postgraduate she metamorphosed into a designer-clad, well-travelled woman. At last she achieves her heart's desire and marries a rich man. But will she be able to retire from her "career" and settle down or will the temptation of yet another man's attention, money and gifts prove to be too strong?
From the Inside Flap: The favourite tense of a visiting Internet gentleman is future. He would do for you this and that. He would do for you everything. He would buy you cars, clothes, houses, take on vacation, send to universities, marry you... some time in the future (next summer, after you go to bed with him, when a big deal comes through, when you come to his country, when you marry him, when you are together for two years...). This cloudless future never comes but gets switched to a reproachful past tense after a while: you do not want to go to bed/clean for me/pay for your tickets/look after my children/wait for two years! You are so bad! And I thought about... They think about a lot of things. Some men I met thought about marrying me, some – about sending me a mobile, some – about giving me money to start my own business. I remember there was one man who thought about taking me to the movies. It is not what they thought that matters, but the fact that they did. When I encounter the past tense, I reply with dignity: "And I thought, too... I thought about going to bed with you." It makes two of us – deep thinkers. And from her dictionary ... Offended visitors – males who take umbrage when you laugh aloud at their lies and promises. Perplexed visitors – males who start asking questions when you laugh aloud at their lies and promises.
