Penpals can touch our hearts, be lasting life-long friends, or just give us a good reason to check our mailbox. Whether you've been penpalling for years, or never had a penpal before - this is the swap for you!

I love getting snail mail rather than junk and bills! The point of this swap is to meet new penpals! So you will have 2 partners that you will send an introduction letter to. So you will send 2 letters and receive 2 letters from different people. So that's 4 possible new penpals! I hope that this swap will form many new close friendships.

An introduction letter... tell about your interests, hobbies, your family, where you live, etc. If you've never written an introduction letter before, don't get stressed! You don't need to write everything about your life. Just the basics stated above and ask questions too, keeps the "conversation" flowing, well writing in this case :-) tell them anything you feel comfortable with. The letters should be 2 pages at a minimum. They can be handwritten or typed. I personally prefer handwritten letters as I feel they are more personal but it's senders choice. Feel free to add a little surprise, or decorate the envelope, it's entirely up to you. The only requirement is you send a letter at least 2 pages long to each partner.

Newbies are allowed, but with a well filled out your profile, no profile then I will have to ban you. No recent 1's or 3's, I will check out the ratings of everyone, and I have the right to ban you if you have a lot of unexplained no-sends.

Please only sign up if you are serious about starting a new friendship. I understand that not every pen pal pairing will work out, but don't sign up if you aren't going to put your heart into this. Feel free to leave any questions or comments below :-)

Glad it's international. It's disappointing to see most of the swaps USA only.
