Hey! My name is Alexandra.

Age: 19

Gender: Cis female

Location: Michigan, USA.

Languages: Languages: English, some German, but it’s rusty

Interests/Hobbies: Horseback riding and art are my biggest passions. (Drawing, painting, dancing, cooking, tattoos, ect. ect.) I’m also a giant bookworm. (I guarantee you’ll never find me without some novel and my sketchbook) I love nature (though it doesn’t always love me!), so I’m very fond of hiking, camping, and kayaking. I’m a giant geek as well. (Seriously, just check my blog. Video games, star trek, harry potter, lotr, you name it) 

I’m a student at a community college whose not really settled on what to study! I’m interested in anything and everything between, anthropology, fishery and wildlife, concept art, animation, equestrian studies, history„ astronomy, ect..ect. So, I really do enjoy learning, especially about culture, and am fascinated by the world around me.

Stuffs that rubs me wrong: Crazy fans and their fandoms, also spiders, generally rude and opinionated people

About the penpal/s I’m looking for-

Countries: Anywhere is good! Though I am particularly interested in European penpals.

Gender: Any

Age group: 17-22

Email, snail mail or both: Snail mail only, maybe Skype later on though! 

Anything else: I’m really looking for 1 or 2 penpals whom I can exchange cute handmade letters/nick-knacks/gifts/drawings with, and more importantly, make a long lasting friend with! (I really, really need more of those.) I’d love to get to know someone and have someone get to know me too! 

What you can expect from me: Individualized, handmade letters, drawings, tea, stickers, postcards, washi tape, (Anything interesting I can fit in an envelope, and packages later on), and usually long letters.

What I expect from you: Just about the same of what I’ll give to you. Someone who will actively right back, share fun stories, jokes, stuff with me, and is open minded. 

**You may have seen my add before. The only thing I’m going to ask is that you write the first letter. (I’ve written too many with no replies, so I’m trying again. Don’t want to waste my cute stationary.)

Than-tan

My name is Than-tan and I am from Cape Town, South Africa. I have had penpals before but it fizzled out before it even started due to lack of replies. I enjoy reading, writing and taking phots. I also like thrift-shopping and hiking (even though I am afraid of heights). I like writing long letters talk about everything and anything.

I love Castle, Once Upon a Time, CSI, Revenge, Crisis, Two Broke Girls and many more that I have trouble remembering right now.

You can contact me at chezi25t@gmail.com. Don’t be shy just say something and I will say something back and before you know will be writing notebooks of letters to each other.

You know you want to send the email! JUST DO IT 

Hello!

I am a 17 year old girl from Norway and my name is Solveig!

I would really like to have a penpal. Age, location, gender and believes etc really does not matter. I am looking simply for someone to exchange letters with because I really enjoy writing letters, and I sometimes caught myself in writing too long letters. I write in English, but I can also write Norwegian (of course). 

I really enjoy comedies, and when it comes to music I can listen to almost everything. I believe that there is something that I love in every genre, but then there is also something I hate in every genre. 

I prefer to send letters in the post, and not just emails, but it’s perfectly okay to start to get to know each other trough emails/messages.

More information about me/including appearance you can find here.

I’d like to be contacted trough tumblr, so leave a message in my ask box if this sounds interesting! :-)

Hey! My name is Jordan and I am 17 years old. I currently reside in Alberta, Canada. 
I have submitted to this blog before, but I figured it was time to submit again. I already have two wonderful pen pals, but I definitely wouldn’t mind having one or two more! 
Likes: My likes include reading, writing, MUSIC, collecting tea pots, enjoying nature, baking, taking polaroids, anything vintage, food, and fashion. I don’t want to get into too much detail but I will spare a few. Some of my favourite authors include Ken Follet, Markus Zusak, John Green, Rainbow Rowell. Some of my favourite bands are The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Tokyo Police Club, Tyler the Creator, Jack White, and really anything in the indie and alternative rock genre. 
Dislikes: I try not to dislike too many things, but some of them include cooked vegetables haha, umm rude people, people who push their views onto others, and just anyone who is racist, homophobic, transphobic, supports rape culture. I think you catch my drift. 
Perfect Penpal: Well in all honesty, I’d prefer a male penpal, but i don’t think they come around too often, so I am perfectly okay with a female pen pal. I only want to do snail mail. I understand if you wanna email like a few times before we start snail mail, but there is just something about receiving a letter in the mail. I am cool with someone from anywhere in the world even Canada. I only speak English though. And age wise I’d prefer 15-19.

My name’s Laura &amp; I’m 19, American and study film in college. Considering going back for studio arts after next year, though. I would describe my personality as a cross between introverted and somewhat eccentric. My primary interests are:
film - foreign &amp; horror
comic books - DC/Vertigo/Dark Horse imprints
animation/cartoons
TV
drawing - chalk, paint, whatever
any crafty &amp; artistic for that matter
music (mostly punk &amp; new wave stuff)
food - I don’t eat meat, but have a huge sweet tooth :B
I can write really long letters so I’m looking for someone who appreciates rambling about my latest comic finds and whatnot. Preferably 17+ but I don&#8217;t care if you&#8217;re from my country or international. I would like to have both.
If you’re interested, please message me on my main blog (click). If link don&#8217;t work my url is wandorwoman - tell me a bit about yourself and what you think we may have in common. Hope to hear from you! 8)
