I can’t find the pen pal page with my ad anymore!
If addresses are older then 5 years and there has not been any request for updating them, they are deleted.
That is also the reason that the tags don’t start with 1.
If you don’t know where your address is, just send an email with your question by clicking on the little envelope on this page.
If you can, let me know your tag. It is always at the top of your ad, in bold letters
It is a code of seven digits with a dash, like 1806-003.

Many people ask me how to get added to the list.
So, here is how to do it:

Why the country you live?
Because some people want to write with a pen pal from a specific country.
If you add your country, this may help you in finding a good pen pal.
Why male or female?
Because pen pals from other countries, though they may speak your language, often won’t be able to tell from your name what you are.
Why your date of birth?
Well, sooner or later you will tell your pen pals your age anyway, and I guess you will get better responses. Date of birth is better than age, because it never changes.
Why the personal info?
To attract people who share your interests and to prevent lots of letters of people with whom you’ve nothing in common.
What I mean with “pen pal you are looking for”:
Please be clear if you want to write letters or emails; and if you are looking for a real friend or relationship also.

Often it will take some time before you are added.

Because I myself put a lot of work in my ad, Deb (my wife) and I met one another through pen palling.
So this information is important if you’re looking for really good friends.

A final word of advice:
If you have made a pen pal ad which you think is really good, save it! Then, if you want to add yourself to other pen pal sites, you put that in with copy and paste. Saves you a lot of work!
