Okay, are there any lesbians out there who still value snail mail....getting home to find a chatty, handwritten letter waiting for you!?
I'm 37 years old and I've been penpalling for 20 years. I never really felt I fitted in anywhere but I've met some amazing friends through writing letters. Recently I've thought that it might be fun to find a couple of new people who would like to exchange regular chatty letters. I love getting to know people from new places!
I live with my wife, we've been together for 16 years and have 2 young children together, so all I'm looking for is friendship. I'm currently at university, I'm in my final year of a postgrad social work degree. I don't get too much free time these days, but some things I enjoy include swimming, hiking, geocaching, TV, movies and penpalling. I'm vegetarian and love cooking veggie and vegan food, if there's any other people out there who like swapping recipes, I'd be happy to do this. I love to travel and have a huge list of places I'd like to visit, I also love languages...I speak some Portuguese and some German and I'd love to improve these as well as learn more languages.
Reading is a huge passion of mine and I love fantasy novels...Lord of the Rings type books are my favourite, they're a great way to escape from every day life! I also enjoy dystopian novels like the Divergent series...this type of teenage fiction is imaginative and I find it easy to get caught up in these stories.
I'd like to write to anyone who reads this and thinks we may have some common interests, it doesn't matter where you're from, your age etc, all I ask is that you be willing to write the first letter.
Really hope there's someone out there who wants to give this a try, it would be great to make some new friends!
