I’m a woman and I was born November 5, 1997.
About me: I love to read! I do not have a favorite author or genre because for me it’s all about the story or voice the book has that catches my attention. I also enjoy listening to music. Again, I do not have a favorite artist or genre (my playlist is all over the place). To be completely honest I love all art, but I do not have one artistic bone in my body! Currently, I am studying Cultural Anthropology and I have no plans in switching majors. I love to laugh, which is a good thing because it does not take much for me to laugh. Seriously, I actually look forward to reading laffy taffy wrappers if the opportunity ever presents itself. I have been told that I have a very dry sense of humor and at times I wonder if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. I come from what I feel like is a large family, and it is pretty obvious when we are out and about. There are times when you hear us before you see us. I was born with a minor birth defect, but even with it being very obvious at times to the point where it annoyingly gets in my way, not once did I let it stop me.
Kind of pen pal I am looking for: I am fine with either emailing or writing letters. I cannot say what I am looking for in a pen pal because the people we meet in life are always a surprise. However, friendship is something I will always welcome. Though, it would be most appreciated if my pen pal were to be around my age.

About me:
I’m in search of email or snail mail pals. My primary interests include listening to electronic music, cooking/cooking experiments, writing poetry/collaborative writing, collaging, and mail art. I dabble in this and that and I really appreciate learning new things. My feed reader has more feeds than I can read daily or care to count; including topics relating to visual art, writing, health, fitness, physical therapy, finance, business, politics, science, psychology, and life hacking. My favorite TV show is Big Bang Theory. I’m on hiatus from Game of Thrones. I’m not much of a movie watcher, just because there seems to always be something else I could be doing.
Kind of pen pal I am looking for:
I’m looking for email or snail mail pen pals in the U.S. and/or abroad, close to my age, who are interested in building friendships.

I’m also interested in working on collaborative poetry, exchanging poetry, or exchanging mail art if that is something you are into =)

About me: I am a German major who recently switched concentration from history to botany/environmental sciences.

Archaeology has long been my interest, and someday I suppose I may end up working within that discipline, but through the botany path rather than history. I’m also an athlete, participating in volleyball, basketball, and track and field throughout my school days, and continuing with track as a thrower in college. (I honestly would love to get into MMA and extreme calisthenics, but with everything I have going on track must be where I focus my energy at the moment.)
Kind of pen pal I am looking for: someone close to my age with a similar personality and preferably Christian.

About me: I’m an active 5’8” (1.73 m), 180 lbs. (82 kg), retired, married man who is a Christian. I am not looking for flirting or romance. But I’m looking for a special relationship that I’m missing in my life and need to feel complete - that is a young American woman, single or married, age 20s - 30s, with or without children, Bi or Straight who is willing to build and form a lifelong “father and daughter-of-the-heart” relationship together. We should share similar qualities as patience, kindness, caring, sincerity, positive, love, compromising, and commitment to such a relationship. I’ve been praying for nearly 25 years for such a relationship. I enjoy normal everyday conversations, what’s going on in each other’s lives, share stories, encouraging one another, and willing to give and receive advice - but only when asked for. I’m very open-minded and will discuss anything. I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, hiking, sometimes swimming, observing nature, and exercise walking. I also enjoy reading, writing short stories, volunteer work, church, corresponding, sending small gifts, and visiting. I’m into snail mail, email, phone conversations, texting, and learning to Skype. If I would form a lifelong bond with a young lady in a “father and daughter-of-the-heart” relationship, I am hoping that in time we can visit one another, enjoy one another’s company and get to know my wife and any of your family (if you have any). Please sincere replies only with readable letters. A Pic is a plus, but not immediately necessary. I would like a description of yourself though as well as your interests, likes and dislikes.

Erin S.
e-mail me
I’m a woman and I was born July 18, 1975.
Compulsive writer looking for other writers and creative-minded people worldwide for long-letter, thought-provoking correspondence. I’m a married female with no children looking to correspond with creative, open-minded, long-letter writers around the world. Pen palling has been a big part of my life since I was seven and I have met wonderful people around the world through letters.
I manage a homeless shelter as my job, but my heart and soul belong to writing. I write compulsively every day for hours... poetry, short stories novels... and of course letters and journals. I often think I’d not stay sane if not for all the writing I do; spilling my thoughts raw and naked onto paper.
Photography, perfumery, Tarot, learning, music, films, travel, cultures, esoteric knowledge, philosophy, literature, poetry, art and people are also interests of mine.
I am a laid back, easy going and open minded person. I am very empathic and open-minded. I wish to write to females and males and things like age, sex, race, religion and sexuality don’t matter to me. Though, I will say I am not a religious person and expect you to respect my beliefs just as I respect yours.
In correspondence it is important for me to connect with a person and to be able to discuss many matters and subjects. A back and forth discussion and desire to get to know each other and form an intimate and close bond is needed for the friendship to work, in my opinion. Short or impersonal letters are not desired, nor are report-type letters or form letters. I am looking for a special kind of connection and for people who are artistically and intellectually inclined and enjoy learning, discussing, creating, and living active, productive lives. Frequency of letters is not that important to me and I don’t at all care about cute stationery or what kind of paper you write on. I am, however, only interested in snail mail correspondence and in real, in-depth connections - not in pen pal collectors who wish only to have a lot of mail and don’t engage in discussion or know anything about their pen pals. If you think we have some things in common or would make good correspondents, please send me an email and introduce yourself so we can go from there.

Mark Nielsen
PO Box 482
Mahomet, IL 61853
U.S.A.

I’m a man and I was born June 3, 1969.
My interests in a pen pal are rather specific. I prefer a snail mail pal who wants to write fiction or play role-playing games via the mail. I am ready to collaborate in writing a narrative or we can trade completed written works (stories or poems) or we can play a RPG (like Dungeons and Dragons). Any subject matter/genre will suffice as long as it is not erotic or horrific in nature. I prefer my correspondent to be of a certain age (mid-twenties and up). I will write to men and women. Clean fiction or fantasy is what I’m interested in sharing and not so much the mundane depiction of reality. A way to start is to send to me a fictive or gaming idea that you’d like us to work on.
