I have been pen palling for a while now does anyone else do this and is there somewhere on the site for this? It would be nice to write to people on here if they were interested.

I've recently reactivated my interest in calligraphy, but dip pens are not conducive to writing anything longer than a post card. Finally discovered there are fountain pens that are good for both italic writing and Spencerian. My experiments have left me with 22 pens of various widths for italic and a couple for the thick and thin style of Spencerian script. There's also brush lettering...but I have to stop some where.

Anyone interested in learning more?

Hi KarenN66, hope that you manage to get a pen pal on this site, you
will probably have to open a chat room with potential writers as you
will need to give your postal address and not so safe on this general
site. I used to have pen pals whilst in the Army, and more recently I
was writing to a lovely lady who lived in Florida USA, but I lost touch
with her a year or so ago. Like you I loved to receive letters, but now
only get bills. Good luck, take care and stay safe, best wishes, Terry.
Response from Safariman made 4 days ago
Hi Karen, thank you for your response to my reply, I agree with you
about the letters but if you just want someone to chat to on this
site I will be here if you feel a bit lonely, I like live in Southampton
and only been here 7 months, and with the restrictions in place it
is difficult to meet others. I love to travel so am looking forward to
next year when I hope to go back to Cape Town in March or April.
Hope to hear from you when you want to have a general chat.
Until then, take care and stay safe. Best wishes, Terry.

I'm new here and have never had a pen pal in my life and I'm 67 years old. My partner of 37 years has recently passed and so I'm looking for something or someone to ease lonely hours. I live in an English Durham village called Esh Winning and was born on the east coast in West Hartlepool (now Hartlepool). I feel as though I'm losing the passion for interests but I have had hobbies of sport, particularly football, music, listening to and playing, reading practically anything and walking. Thank you for reading.

Hello, I am very new here, it feels rather like being a new boy at school and needing to find ones way round, but being very old one finds that many old friends ar falling by the wayside and new ones are needed. I will comment further when I know my way round..

Hi everyone.
Its my first time on here and not exactly sure how to express myself but I'll try my best. Very tough time recently with several close breakups including family, friends and partner to cut a long story short - looking for some like minded people to converse with on a social, fun and intellectual level - I consider myself an articulated person who can have a discussion ranging from many different subject and topics- hope to converse with someone soon.

Hi Bigjon
Welcome to the site - I hope you make lots of new friends.
I too am looking to chat to new people. I’m sorry you’ve gone through such a tough time recently and I would be more than happy to chat to you.
It’s been rough during this lockdown and I’ve felt isolated and lonely myself and have always loved social interaction.
Would like to find out more about you and see if we have interests in common.
Look forward to hearing from you - though not sure how this works

Hello Giveupnow - I am using this for the first time. Was actually looking for penpals, but then came across this website - Silversurfers.com
how apropos!
I am just over 60 years old, love music & studied piano for a number of years. Miss playing the piano. Divorced & like to travel, but not during times like these. Hopefully this will soon pass. Do not know much about astronomy but do find it fascinating.
Best wishes to you & your wife

Hi Giveupnow, sadly I have nursed people with dementia, and you can find it a lonely place to be in. Anytime you just want to chat or rant please feel free to get in touch.
Response from CarolAnne01 made on 27th Apr 2021 18:51:09
Hi Giveupnow
Not the easiest of tasks caring for someone with dementia, it’s a 24/7 responsibility so I am sure you get very little time to yourself.
My husband who, is now in from leukaemia,, is not the greatest conversationalist so I now find myself with time to spare. We’ve had a tough 3/4 years, with treatments, hospitalisation and a compromised immune system which meant little or no socialising with family or friends and COVID has only exacerbated my feelings of loneliness and isolation.
My saving grace are my two grown up children and three grandchildren who keep me sane and focused.
If you feel you’d like to chat then please contact me.

Hi Fiona. I've never had a pen pal before and would love to be able to communicate with you. I'm a very young at heart 72yr old. Women. Married with three grown up children. Lots of hobbies and interests and enjoy learning about other people and their interests. Hope to hear back from you. Best wishes Brenda.

Hi, I’m looking for a penpal/penpals and would be interested in writing to you. I’m 66, recently retired, which due to lockdown is not going very well. I have 5 children, all grown up and left home, 14 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren and my trusty Boxer rescue dog. I like reading, films/dramas, quiz shows, cooking, travel and being in the company of good friends. Fingers crossed we might become great penpals
Response from JinnyF made on 5th Apr 2021 19:28:13
Hi flojojo, I am 63, with 4 grown children, 10 grandchildren & 2 great grandchildren & my loyal companion is a staffie. We have similar families & interests. I like to read & love watching a good drama or film. I don't really cook much anymore, no point for 1, its mainly microwave these days. I do love to travel, but of course we can't at moment. I am always trying to lose weight & get fit, which has also suffered through the lockdowns, but I am always trying. I play a lot of PC games to keep myself occupied, do quizzes etc. It would be lovely to have a penpal

Hi, how lovely to hear from you and what a lot we seem to have in common. I to am always trying to diet and get fit, but must admit without a lot of success, but hey ho it is what it is. I’m just watching the new drama on Channel 5 called Intruder, it is on for the next 4 nights. Today has been good in so much as things will move further on next Monday, more shops open, hairdressers (thank goodness) plus lots of other things. Where in the country do you live? I live in the county of Kent in a house overlooking the sea. I would very much like to be your penpal and look forward to getting to know you better and hopefully forming a new friendship, regards Jocelyn

Good Evening
I am a 61 year old lady, living in Staffordshire with my kitten and my budgie, it can be a bit challenging with these two at times.
