    Yes, because Google certainly does know English better than me
    i hope we can be good friends - Надеюсь, мы станем хорошими друзьями.
    i admire you very much - Я тобой восхищаюсь.
    i love you - Я люблю тебя.
    you are my russian god - Ты мой русский бог! (I've never heard and never used anything like this. Perhaps, I just didn't get you)

    Sararozaryo, you might find that this verb восхищаться ("to admire") is more interesting than you think! Because the root -хищ- means "grabbing" or "carrying away", like rapere in Latin.

    For example, похищение means "kidnapping", while an eagle or falcon is called a хищная птица -- "raptor bird", or "bird of prey".


    And Я тобой восхищаюсь could also be literally translated "I am enraptured by you."

    Also, the title of this Blondie video could be translated as Восхищение:

    That the problem with translation
    While English word "admire" has certain exact meaning, Russian word "восхищение" can have several translation
    I think it is better not to use it (thus not to use admire at all), that's first
    Second, I don't think "I love you" is appropriate for the first email, maybe it is better to use I like you - ты мне нравишься
    Third, "you are my Russian god" definitely will not sound good in Russian, I wouldn't touch anything religious when you talk to stranger - who knows about his thoughts about it
