Since this was such a hit I'm going ahead and making it a group swap.

When I start writing an intro letter to a new penpal, I don't know what they want to know! So, I had this idea for a swap!

You will write or type 25 questions that you would like your partner/penpal to answer. You won't write anything about yourself in this first letter, just these questions you'd like to have answered. Examples, can be:

"Do you have children?" "Where did you grow up?" "What's your favorite animal?"

Pop it in an envelope and send by snail-mail. So you will recieve 25 questions from someone, and you will send 25 questions to someone different. Therefore, if you get a reply from both of these people, you have the opportunity for 2 brand new penpals! You can agree to keep writing to each other, or you can just leave it at the 25 questions.

I would recommend that when you recieve your 25 questions, you include another list of 25 questions in with your answers when you reply. This way you can both have a bunch of knowledge about each other.

Please no rude or overly personal questions, keep it clean and friendly. Open to newbies, as long as you have your profile filled out with your likes and dislikes etc. Everyone else must have a rating higher than 4.7 .This swap is international. No unexplained 1's or 3's in the past 6 months. I will look at profiles before partners are assigned.

Any questions, message me!

Please rate your one partner who sent you the 25 questions. After you've done that, I think it would be expected of you to write back, at least once. But you will not be rated on this. Hopefully we will have two new long lasting penpals!

These can be typed or handwritten.

Questions are senders choice. All that is required is 25 questions.

I will angel this swap!

Loved this one! Too bad the mail in Brazil has been so lazy. I'm afraid to participate and because of the inefficiency of the Brazilian mail, my partner does not receive my letter... :(
