I love meeting new people, and forming friendships! I’m a generally nerdy person, and I love Sherlock (both BBC and canon), Yuri on Ice, Shakespeare, reading in general, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and loads of other shows!
I’d love to get to know people, and possibly meet up one day too ❤

Preferences: Any gender, or lack thereof! I’d prefer someone within a year or two of my age, but even if you’re not, don’t hesitate to get in contact!

Heyo so I’m not gonna put a lot about me cause I’d rather talk and have someone slowly learn things about me so just putting the main things so you know what to expect lmao 😂

I’m 16, from Maryland my name’s Makayla, && I’m bisexual lol

I absolutely love learning new things like it’s an obsession I swear lmao my family is very religious but I’m not really anything ATM!!

I do incredibly odd things without thinking like really just spur of the moment things when I get an idea lol

OK SOO I didn’t put too much about me cause I really reallyyy want someone who will end up being like my best friend and get to know everything about each other BECAUSE I really want someone who will maybe save money up with me then when we graduate, meet each other, & go on like a year long trip with me to each state in America I KNOW THIS SOUNDS REALLY WEIRD OK BUT I KNOW THERES SOMEONE ELSE WHO WANTS SOMETHING LIKE THIS AS MUCH AS I DO lmao

I’m 22. I work with cars. I love doggos. I have self esteem issues and just quite often prefer to communicate in a way which ISN’T face to face. Sometimes writing is the only way I can make sense of my thoughts.
There are also times when you need to speak to a total stranger. See a new world, or even just talk to someone totally impartial.
I want a someone who wants to discuss the intricate details of life. What happened today, what are you doing at work. I want to know the details of what you made for dinner, I want to know what song you listened on your way to work.
I think its best if my pen pals are old enough to be working, or living away from home. I’d like someone I can relate to. So we can have a few giggles about what is bothering us.
I don’t mind your gender, but I like people who rant. Who ramble on. Rambling letters re the best. Take me on a journey on your train of thought. If it runs away all the better. Write until you run out of ink friend. Its nice reading about it.

Preferences: Adults please. If you consider yourself an adult, ill trust your judgement.

hi! i’m micah, i’m 15 from the uk!

i am interested in drag queens, the lgbtqia community, equality, music, art and languages. :)

my ‘perfect penpal’ would be someone around my age, who is accepting, trustworthy and really funny. similar interests would be cool for ice breakers. ideally would like them to be fast repliers because i am a clingy piece of shit. i don’t mind gender/sexually/race as long as youre cool

i speak english and alright spanish and i am willing to speak in either languages with anyone but excuse errors plssss

At the risk of sounding maudlin, I guess I am searching for a cure to loneliness. I’ve never been a very outwardly social person, I struggle with people in day-to-day life - something I believe a lot of introverts can understand (all my friends are online, ha ha). The problem is, I do want to talk and know people; to communicate myself and be understood and then understand someone else in return. I had nurtured the idea of getting a penpal for a while but was always a little anxious over the idea - what if they didn’t like me, what if they thought me a fool? But given how my life has gone up until now I just thought one day ‘what the heck, just do it’. So here I am in all my awkward but optimistic glory, trusting in this leap of faith.

Name: Ally
Age: 19
Country: USA

Why hello there!
As you saw above my name is Ally and I’m from the US.. First things first is you have to be cool with animals but more specifically dogs because they seem to be all I talk about because they take up so much of my time.. I am looking for a pen pal because i do spend so much time out working on our family farm with the animals so I don’t have as much time as I would like to get out and meet people. I did highschool online due to medical reasons so let’s just say my friend list isn’t over flowing with names! I just finished my freshman year of college so there will be plenty of time and boredom to talk to new friends.. I always seem to have my phone in my hand so I hope your ready to talk!
I own my own photography business so that is a true passion of mine. My happy places are the movies, concerts and with family! You can often catch me scrolling my phone looking for fanfiction!
I hope to hear from someone out of this!

Preferences: LQBTQ community is welcomed and perhaps preferred as I’m still very much trying to figure out this aspect of my life!
I would prefer girls 18+ just because that’s closest to myself!

This was for a magazine photoshoot I recently did but all that clutter is mine (ft. vintage postcards, old letters from my penpal, copies of the New York Times, a Nat Geo map and Nat Geo magazine packets (DSLR))
