I love to do snail mailing and my saying I live by goes this way. I have never met a stranger. If you are lonely then do something about. Life is to short pick up pen and paper make a friend, cheer someone up. Enjoy people cost a stamped envelope piece of paper. Expand your world to make a lifetime of friendship to share your joys and sorrows. I'm 68 years old turn 69 April 9 born on Easter. My husband passed 2003 from cancer. I'm Christian down to earth enjoy people hearing about your life story as I will share mine. Looking forward to our friendship for many years to come.

Please write me at:

I live in Devon in the South West of England and I would love to chat to people from near and far.

I am interested in anything and everyone and anything. When I was young I wrote to a girl in New Zealand and another in France. I remember so well the anticipation of getting letters and would love to have pen friends again.

Hiya Ann. This is Linno from Australia; is that far enough for you ? I love writing, photography and reading. I hope we can be great penpals. Australia is in the grip of a drought right now, quite different to where you live. Catch you later, Linno

Hi, thought I would try a pen pal search now I'm retired and looking for friendship with like-minded folk. I have recently moved to the West Country and love the area and outdoor life. I enjoy cooking, reading and travelling and visiting new places. I'm single after a long marriage, am 71 but very young at heart and sociable. It would be good to share everyday news and views with new pals!

Hi everybody, I am a 71-year-old guy, that was forced into retirement, and I thought I would hate it.....wrong!.... I am enjoying every minute of it.
I enjoy writing, so if you need a penfriend, you know where to find me.
I am ex-regular army and spent many years working in media security.

Welcome to the site, Lenzo, like you i dreaded retirement but like you found it is great to do what you want when you want. Have fun on the site
Response from CaroleAH made on 17th Feb 2019 12:16:01
Hi Lenzo and Silverblue,
Welcome to Silversurfers - lots of topics in the Forum for you to comment on. I also was made redundant in 2015 and have to admit that I cried all the way home! Now, I wonder how I found time to go to work 🙂 I joined my local U3A and have found new friends and interests. As you mentioned, Silverblue, it's great being able to do what you want, when you want. This last week I've been over to the East coast, to Scarborough, for a great day out, Ilkley to meet a friend for coffee and then Burton Agnes Hall to see their Snowdrop Spectacular - fabulous walk through the woodland and thousands of snowdrops! Happy Days! 🙂

Hi everyone, I've just joined this site and would welcome some communication with anyone who wants a friend. My main interest is art, I love to paint, I also have a dog and like to walk. I'm also interested in the natural world, in fact anything to do with wildlife and nature. Although most topics interest me, those are my main ones.
I live in South Wales near the Severn and Usk estuary.
