Pen pals

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.

This topic is from 2014 but in 2020 maybe we should call it E.Mail Mates
communicstion is. Importlant at any time but particulary now as we are in social isolation it is lovely to get a medsage from a friend.A little bit of support and empathy goes some way to.helping us feel we are not alone .

Hi Libby! I’ve just done a 10 min workout with Joe Wickes on YouTube. It’s left me breathless but quite pleased that I’ve at least got myself off the sofa
I’d like to keep in touch to have a chat about all sorts. Please feel free to message me anytime.

Hello Patricia,

So sorry I didn't get back to you sooner ; I have "hit and miss" problems with my old laptop ! The broadband signal where I am can be a bit of a lottery at times .

Thank you for the welcome to us "newbies" . It's so good to have a connection to each other , and maybe not feel as lonely too .; especially now of course .

I'm not really used to "chat rooms" , as I tend to use the phone and emails mostly , but when I was a bit younger I loved writing a letter or two to pen pals in the post ( what's that eh ? !! ) and used to enjoy thinking out and writing the odd poem when I was a youngster ; especially about nature .

Would be lovely to hear from you again Patricia , if you'd like that .
All best wishes to you and your family ,
Keep well.


Also , best wishes and keep well to everyone on Silversurfers !

Hi everyone, I am a soon to be 70 years young lady and am interested in chatting with other ladies. I am very happily married.
I thought it would be nice to have a few lady friends to chat about this that and everything in these worrying times. I have many interests and I love long chatty letters. Get in touch if you want to chat to a friend. (ladies only please)

Hello surfers I am new to this site an looking forward to communicating with people and getting to to them. I am 68, live on my own with my precious dog who is my constant companion. I adore her. Have one daughter and a grandson who I seldom see as they lead very busy lives. Still see my ex-husband every now and then but he is not one for talking....part of the reason why we got divorced many years ago.
In all honesty I must admit that I am quite lonely and need to connect with people. There is only so much I can say to my precious dog!!!!!
Will reply to all posts.
All who read this post: "Have a rewarding and prosperous day" My favorite quote is "When the pupil is ready the teacher will appear" Bear in mind we are either teacher or pupil at any given time.

Hello, Firefly. This is Eirlys. I did not make it clear that I am looking for e-mail penfriends. If you are still interested I would enjoy hearing from you. Not sure how to set about this. I suppose publishing one's email address in a Reply can only be seen by that particular person?

Hello Everybody! I am a retired lady living in Montana, USA. Would love to chat with someone from another country. Getting a little bored here - because of the Corona isolation, can't go out & do much. But the weather is warming up and I will be getting out and walking with my little doggie, Poncho.

Hello everyone! And a big hello from Cheshire, England! I'm a lady who has spent several years touring the world, living in the theatre and on television and in the entertainment industry in general. Have grown up children, and grandchildren and I'm now looking to correspond with a like minded gentleman, preferably aged 70+. (I'm a youthful pensioner who likes to take care of herself). I love New York, and have taken my grandchildren to NY and have always wanted to go back or at least to find a charismatic gentleman from NY to talk with via email or phone. Other parts of the USA are welcome too :0) I'm eager to start a new phase in life... always looking for something around the next corner as life is full of endless possibilities! Please do feel free to get in touch!
