Hello again, dear ones. It's easy to swap with someone, but harder to get to know them--hence a new and improved, stupenderific and interesting list of get-to-know-me questions! Let's all get together and meet some more snail mail friends!

For this swap, as we did last time, 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!

BONUS: Feel free to write some get-to-know-me questions that you wish were on the list in the comments below this swap! These don’t count towards your fifteen that are pulled from the list, but if you like them, by all means add them to your fifteen and send your answers to them too!

ANYONE who posts inappropriate, political, or divisive questions will have their comments deleted and be BANNED from the swap. The goal of this swap is to get to know people, not start drama on the internet!

-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.
