👍This swap is for those who: 👍Keep their pal in mind/profile in mind when writing and truly RESPOND to profiles/letters, 👍Like a 2 way conversation with a pal 👍Tend to write longer letters,👍 at least 40 years young

👎NOT for those who: Write the same thing to more than one pal 👎 Write like it's a journal/diary entry or a play-by-play of their day👎Can't tell who their letter is to by the content

This is for potential pals who are willing to put in the effort to get to know their partners and see if they're a match for ongoing pen paling.

🌈Rating based on whether it was obvious that your partner actually read your profile (obvious as in they commented on multiple topics in your profile; if they did, it's a 5.

No requirements on length (just a real letter, not a couple paragraphs), or artistic abilities (decorate if you like, but not required), and no stationary or tuck-ins required (include if you like). The requirement is to really read the profile and focus on the person you're writing to in your letter and comment on their profile, ask questions about them specifically, etc.

Hopefully you will gain a pal or two, but keep trying if you don't get a long term match; just like when you meet people in person, some you click with and some you don't....it may take several swaps to get a pal that feels like a long lost friend.

You MUST have a well filled-out profile about yourself to join this swap.

Will there be one of these for younger age groups? I love the idea for this swap & would like to participate, but I'm 15 years too young.

There have been similar swaps with no age criteria...and will again at some point, yes. If you are able to host swaps, I encourage you to do one as well!
