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; asking questions RELATED TO THAT SPECIFIC PERSON 👍Tend to write longer letters.

👎NOT for those who: send the same letters/parts to more than one pal 👎 Write like it's a journal/diary entry or a play-by-play of their day without looking at the profile (or letter if responding)👎Can't tell who their letter is to by the content 😖 doesn't ask any questions specifically FOR that partner/pal

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 that, it's a 5; rating is NOT based on commonalities, it's based on whether they READ your profile and wrote to YOU specifically)

No requirements on length (just a real letter, not a couple paragraphs), or artistic abilities (decorate if you like, but not required), and no stationery 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 can be new but you MUST have a well filled-out profile about yourself to join this swap. (Saying what THINGS you like for other swaps is not sufficient for this swap.)

Good idea, that's the kind of letters I like to receive and try to write. I am not looking for a pen pal, I have lots of writing projects and have had pen pals since I was 12. Been there, done that.

Oh, this is exactly why I signed up. But, it says I don’t meet the requirement. Hopefully there will another one like this when I am qualified :) Hugs!!
