Hello Lovelies! After being on this site for a little while, I've realized that it's easy to swap with someone, but harder to get to know them. Let's all get together and meet some new snail mail friends!

For this swap, you will answer at least 15 the following 25 questions about yourself. You can answer whichever questions you want, or feel free to answer all 25! Please write out each question you want to answer, and then answer it in at least two or three sentences. Write more if you want, we all love juicy details! Then print, copy over, or photocopy your answers six times and send them to your six partners!

This swap is perfect for people who are searching for penpals, or are just curious about their fellow swappers on this site!


  1. What are your favorite kinds of swaps to participate in? Why do you like them?

  2. What is your favorite color? Why do you like it?

  3. What are three of your favorite things about yourself?

  4. What is one thing you want to change about yourself in the future?

  5. What is something funny or interesting that happened to you recently?

  6. Are you religious or spiritual? How does that affect your day to day life?

  7. What is your favorite swap package/letter that you've ever received?

  8. What are your most important personal morals and values?

  9. You have an absolutely free day with no obligations. What are you going to do on it?

  10. Have you ever become friends with someone you didn't expect to like? How did that happen?

  11. What are you going to do for Christmas/Hanukkah/New Years/the holidays?

  12. What is something you're really proud of making? (It can be something you baked, made at work, crafted, sent in a swap, etc)

  13. What is something you wish everyone knew about you?

  14. Do you have any pets?

  15. Tell us about an important relationship in your life. Why do you value that relationship?

  16. Do you keep a journal or planner? How do you like to journal or plan?

  17. Do you like to travel? Why or why not?

  18. Why did the chicken cross the road?

  19. Tell us about a challenge you faced and overcame. What did you learn?

  20. Describe your favorite room in your house/apartment. Why do you like it there?

  21. Do you collect anything? What do you collect, and for how long have you been collecting it?

  22. What is one thing you would change about our society if you could?

  23. What is the worst swap that you've ever received, besides being flaked on?

  24. What is your favorite food?

  25. What is one thing on your bucket list?


-Decorate your answers and make them look cool, so your partners can see your unique style!

-Send your partner some profile-based questions!

-No extras are required, but you're free to send them if you like.

-If you feel like your might get along with one of your partners, write back to them, message them, or set up a private swap! The purpose of this swap is to facilitate connection.

THERE'S NO PRESSURE TO DO THE OPTIONAL LIST. Please do not rate down unless you don't receive the question/answer list.

Swappers must be newbies with a well-filled out profile, or have a 4.5 rating and no recent/unexplained 1's/3's. Because this is a pretty low-stakes swap, I might make exceptions if you have a good explanation. I will angel for this swap if necessary after flakers have been rated appropriately.

This sounds like fun! I can’t wait to join!

I am looking forward to this. When will I know who to write to?

AnnaCos 12/13/2019 #

I’ll assign partners on the 16th, barring any unforeseen circumstances. Feel free to start working on the questions now though! The nice thing about this swap is that you can send the same sheet to everyone, so you can prepare it before you know who you’re sending to (and then slip in questions and personalized extras once you know if you want!)

I'm not a newbie but it looks like fun and I want to play too. This is a great swap to make new friends!

AnnaCos 12/14/2019 #

Happy to have you!

I’m super new to this so this will be so exciting! ~

AnnaCos 12/14/2019 #

I'm so glad you're excited! I hope you have lots of fun!

Seeing this too late to sign up. I don't think I'd have the time to complete swaps how I like (personalized). But it sounds like a good time. Hopefully, I can join another time if you host it again.

AnnaCos 12/15/2019 #

You should be able to join until midnight tonight...

AnnaCos 12/16/2019 #

Partners have been assigned. Have fun everyone!

Hello, dear friends. I realized I made the swap deadline a Sunday! I’ve changed it to Monday when the post office is open for everyone’s convenience. Sorry about that! I hope your questionnaires are going well!
