    Change your encoding or just type it by latin letters -- I see senceless symbols only
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.

    Friendy has an app (or a website) that can unscramble bad encoding, but you'll have to run a search for it.

    с нетерпением = with anticipation (if I spelled it correctly)

    Iwould translate нетерпение as impatience.

    I believe "anticipation" is the right word here. "Impatience" has a different connoatation that can be matched to a negative one. Someone who looks forward to the meeting and feels excited would anticipate it.

    Thank you, Rtyom.
    I wouldn't be able to defend my point of view better.

    Yes, Fantom, it is a bit too much for "just a friend", to say such things

    нетерпение is one of those words that does not translate well into English. I personally have always used "impatient", but unfortunately in English that seems to imply that I am a bit upset that I have to wait.

    "Anticipation" implies that something (pleasant) is expected to happen. Something is supposed to happen and I am waiting for it. It is a sure thing.

    "Жду нашей встречи с нетерпением" в данном контексте я б перевёл бы как: "Looking forward to meeting you".

    Вряд ли я смогу дождаться встречи с тобой!

    "Вряд ли" - got nothing to do here, imho, better:

    Не могу дождаться встречи с тобой.

    В итоге у нас получились разные интерпретации одной и той же фразы.
