<p>I used to have a penpal from Sweden, but it was arranged through school. Now, I want another one (my Swedish pal and i lost touch), but I don't know where to look. Do you know of any reliable sites? I'm looking for a penpal in Japan, India, and/or Czech Republic.</p>
<p>i want one too!! i love writing and receiving letters. and it would be cool if i got like a hot guy who lives in spain. that way i could practice my spanish flirting (and probably totally turn him off... lol)</p>
<p>Whoa- The penpal I wrote last night wrote back. He's from Germany, but he's Asian (it seems like-- it's hard to tell with the sunglasses. My CC friends don't think so), and yes, gay. We're about to exchange addresses, because we decided that we prefer snail mail. The funny thing is that he shares the same name as the person I used to "go out" with. I didn't even know his name until he wrote me back. Wow. I'm starting to believe it's true that I'm drawn to any person named Alex. Oh, if anyone wants to see his picture, send me a PM with your email address!</p>
<p>Penpals are a great way to meet new people around the globe. I used to have one in Spain in 7th grade for a Spanish class assignment but that one was a complete failure (we sent three letters to each other and stopped after that without getting to know each other). </p>
<p>I would advise using these online penpal sites with caution. Try to find someone you find agreeable as a penpal. I made an account at the interpals.net one just yesterday and this is the email (entitled "Girl Talk Please") I got from a Korean girl who requested to be my penpal:</p>
<p>* SimWin here. I am in Korea. I am 17 year old. I visit USA next summer when 18 year old. My life stifle, parent shelter, hover, protect. I am home-school student. Many elaborate blocks on internet access. I virgin. I even hardly kiss boy. Never touch in sexy way. But Im smart. I see Korean men harsh, rough, jarring, mean. I read American boy kinder, gentler, warming. I think about sexy encounter in USA. I know easy to do. Boy always willing. But I feel inadequate and not prepared. I hear american girl experienced. I think maybe american girl write me much of life, romance, lovmaking - what to do - so I not scared or poor partner. Only words in English-Korean dictionary please. I am small. In american measure 5foot 1inch, 108 U.S. pounds - no breast much. Will american boy like one so small?
<p>Right, you definitely want to avoid penpals like that.</p>
