Does anyone find pen pals on here? I have replied to many and have had no responses. Can anyone give me advice in case I am posting in the wrong area?

Hi, I'm 64 years old woman (ex nurse) and live in London, I would love to have pen pals, I always have had pen pals, unfortunately last year, I lost the ones I had due to illness. I love reading, music, I have a very varied taste, from R&B to Classical . I have a lot of green parrots coming into my garden from the local park...very noisy but fun to watch. I love writing whether short or long letters, you will always be sure of a reply

I am a 69 year old guy, living in South Wales, with interests in: Geology, Computing, Tropical fish, reading, TV, and collecting precious metals.
I would welcome chats with anyone about any subjects. Along with many other people, I have found that getting older and loneliness seem to go hand in hand.

I live in the West Midlands and I am 64. I also like geology and paleontology, I used to have tropical fish many years ago, now I have a couple of goldfish in my pond. I read each night in bed before I go to sleep.
Would love to swap experiences.

Hi! I’m 53 years old and for some reason, perhaps its winter, I’m really feeling it! I live in Central Scotland and am open to chat about most things, but not politics, I’ve had enough of that recently. I enjoy reading, dog walking and help out at a local Girl Guide unit. I had pen pals in my schooldays and it would be fun to catch up and find out what people are up to. Hope to hear from you soon. Oh! not sure it makes a difference or not but I’m female.

Hello. I know what you mean regarding winter - the cold/dark days, soon it will be spring though, the Easter egg adverts have already sprung up on the television! I’m female, 43 and live in the North East of England. I used to have pen pals when I was younger. I’m always happy to chat/write and will not mention the B word (Brexit). Please feel free to get in touch,

Hi. I am a 58 years old male and fit and healthy. I follow sports , run a bit and cycle a bit,
I enjoy local history and read a lot and like classical music although I am not an expert.
I recently left teaching after a long stretch. The magic had left me in that job!
I am happily married with two children who are grown up now.
I do not have any friends any more because contacts have been lost. I find that sad so I would be happy to link up with someone middle aged who is puzzling what the future holds friendship wise! I live in South Wales.

I am new on here, have introduced myself somewhere on this site. I live in the Midlands. would like to write to people who may or may not have the same interests as me. I do not drink or smoke and do not want discussions about politics or religion or the state of the world. I am depressed enough. I have two rescue cats. I live on my own my interests are reading, a new interest in photography, nothing fancy, the more the camera makes the decisions the better. Geology/Paleontology is a hobby, all self taught so no official qualifications there. I am totally open to sharing day to day problems, feel free to vent. Ask me anything you like. Not looking for any romance, just thought I would put that out there. Anyone who is local to me I am open to meeting up for coffee.
