I used to have a snailmail penpal whom i've written to (and gotten a reply) every 3 months for the past year. We were getting on well that we thought we would still be snailmail-ing for a very very long time.

Then obstacles came our way - busy work schedule, mails getting lost, stamps becoming an expense burden, forgotten what we were talking about due to the long pause in between letters.

I've had an email penpal whom i've written on and off for the past 3 years, and we became great friends in "real life".

So i thought to myself if anyone in the swap-bot community would also like the idea of having an email penpal.

  1. You can write as short/long as you want.

  2. You don't have to worry about buying stamps as an expense.

  3. Your letters won't get lost in the mailroom (maybe check your spam?)

  4. You can reply immediately, a day later, a week later, a month later, its totally up to you. (But if you decided not to continue replying, please do the courtesy of informing the other end. Its vexing eagerly waiting for a response. Xixi.)

  5. You can just reread your previous mails to remind you of the topic.

If you like this idea, do join this swap. And maybe you can write down in the comments below about how many partners you would like for this swap. And i'll take the average number.

Ratings should be given when you receive the 1st email - regardless the content or if you don't wish to reply.

Minimum rating requirement is 3. But newbies are welcomed. Will angel if necessary.

I have been looking for a nice human penpal for a long time. The human won't let me write to anyone. I hope you won't mind if I write to you instead. I am an elve from Middle Earth. :)

Hi, I don't mind having 2 partners for this swap.

Hi all, i've updated the swap and changed it to 1 partner instead of 2. If all goes well, i'll make another one for 2 partners. :)
