Lately, I've been wanting to get back into having penpals. I miss getting letters from my friends, and sitting down to update them on what's going on as well as bonding with them through our letters.

This is a swap to form new, close friendships with a new pen pal. I want to find a friend that I can always count on, someone who won't judge me, someone I can pour my heart out to and someone I can trust with anything and everything.

In this swap, you will send a letter to your partner. Not a list, a letter. Sit down and take your time when you write it. Tell them anything you feel comfortable with, tell them what you do when you have a day off, or what your biggest dream is. Of course, feel free to add in all the normal introduction things, too.

The letter doesn't have to be the length of a novel, but it has to be AT LEAST 2 pages. This will allow your partner to start to get to know you as a person.

I hope that this swap will form many new close friendships.

Please only sign up if you are serious about starting a new friendship. I understand that not every pen pal pairing will work out, but don't sign up if you aren't going to put your heart into this.

And what's wrong with a novel??? LOL I tend to write very very long letters.

ohhhkay 03/ 4/2008 #

LOL, nothing! Once I get going, it can be hard to stop. I love super crazy long letters!

ohhhkay 03/ 6/2008 #

Hey all!

We're in the top 10!! WOOHOO!!

rockstar20h 03/12/2008 #

I write very long letters too!!

TattooedBruise 03/13/2008 #

So how does this work...? I want a new pen pal! lol

ohhhkay 03/14/2008 #

Tattooed, you will write an introduction letter to your partner and send it off. That way they can get to know you and chances are, you may get a letter in return and then you'll have a new pen pal! :)

TattooedBruise 03/15/2008 #

Okay...do I just pick a partner or am I assigned? I'm confused! lol

ohhhkay 03/16/2008 #

Partners are assigned. :)

CuppieCake 03/17/2008 #

Hi I signed up for this swap and I am really looking forward to it. How will we find out who we are writing to and getting there info.


MadameCaligula 03/19/2008 #

I so do NOT envy you having to assign us all partners...92 people? Wow. Good luck with that! (And to add to your organizational misery, if you're taking requests, could you assign me someone outside of the US? I love learning about everyday life somewhere other than that with which I'm already familiar.) Thanks!

ohhhkay 03/19/2008 #

Hi guys!

I will be assigning partners as soon as the option becomes available. I have NO control over who is partnered with who, it's all done by computer!

I can't believe how many people have signed up for this swap! It's amazing! I'll be hosting another one in the next few months, we'll see how this one goes after partners are assigned!

ohhhkay 03/20/2008 #

Partners have been assigned!

I have no control over who gets partnered with who.

I will be angeling this swap for anyone who doesn't receive from their partners!

ElizabethObviously 03/25/2008 #

Love to write and letters to, But can we ask for a USA penpal? With cost of postage, well anyway, I guess I am on the fence on this one, still thinking about this one. Will let you know.
