Essentially, this swap is for anyone between 21 - 35 who wants a penpal. I hope this age group isn't too broad for anyone's tastes, but I wanted to target a younger crowd without excluding too many people. Newbies are welcome. No recent unexplained 1s and 3s. (PM me.)

  • Each person gets one partner.
  • This is an international swap.
  • Write a letter to your partner (hand written, at least one page) describing a bit about yourself, your dreams, your life, your quirks...anything about you that you'd like to share.
  • Once the above requirements are met, I'd say a 5 is in order.

Have fun :)

UPDATE - JAN 5th 2013 Just letting everyone know that while I can try my best to weed out potential flakers, if this should happen, I will be sending you something in the mail to make up for it. (Probably just a cheesy Hallmark card, but it'll be sent with all my love.)

UPDATE - JAN 15TH 2013

Hey everyone, first let me apologize for not assigning partners yet. Recently I had no internet access so I didn't get sufficient time to check through the list of people who signed up and I've only just been able to start messaging people. As such I will be pushing back the deadline by a few days. I apologize for this, but I feel it is the right thing to do. It isn't fair if I don't adequately go through the members who signed up. And as I said before, I will angel if there are any flakers. Will be sending this in an email to everyone to ensure that everyone sees this! Thanks.

****JAN 16th 2013**** Deadline is now Feb 7th, 2013. Happy Swapping!!

I would like to join as a penpal. How do I know who is my swap? Thanks.

shanlee7 01/13/2013 #

I should have mentioned that I would like a penpal between the age group of 30 to 35 years if possible please.

Meepy 01/13/2013 #

I already have some penpals, but after a few months some of them stop writing, so I hope that this site speaks to the REAL writers ;)

@shanlee partners are assigned at random. The host cannot guarantee you will get a penpal between 30 to 35.

lacedrawers 01/14/2013 #

Thanks kirstykai, that's exactly what I wanted to say. :)
