Everyone has thought of things they wanted to say to someone but never did. In this swap, you will say them... to your partner.
Write a letter addressed to someone in your life you cannot or did not say something important to. Examples: a secret love, a goodbye you never said, a secret you couldn't tell, a rant at someone you hated but had to pretend to get along with, an explanation you just couldn't find words for at the time, etc. This will be the letter you would send them if there would be no consequences, or if you could have back an opportunity to speak which you missed.
Please make this at least two full size pages (hand written or typed) This means one page front and back. If you want to use smaller letter paper you can use more pages. Including messages to two different people is an option if you need help filling the space.
Include a note or write on the envelope which swap it is for and your user name because this will not be part of the actual letter.
The point of this is to let go of some of the things trapped in our heads but in order to respect the privacy of your partners don't write anything publicly on their profile that refers specifically to the contents of the letter, just send a pm to discuss.
Edit: Although this could take the form of a kind of confession, we do have to be careful of offending people. If your idea for this letter includes anything explicitly violent or sexual please hold off on writing it until partners are assigned so you can message them and ask if that's ok, and have another idea ready just in case.
As a general guideline: rants are fine, swearing is fine, racism, sexism and hatred directly towards any religion or group of people is not.
If this goes well I'll consider having an 'uncensored' version, but for now let's play it safe. If you really want to write something now and your partner is more sensitive you can go ahead and write it and I'm open to doing a private swap.
This is open to newbies with a decent profile and anyone else with 4.7+
