this is like being pen-pals................only quicker!
Definitely enjoy the "quicker" part!
A friend and I became penpals after she moved about 25 miles away. We were children, so we couldn't visit very often and telephone use was limited and strictly monitored. We became quite proficient at bi-weekly correspondence!
I was just talking to DH about my old penpal today. I travelled to Birmingham on my own aged 14 to stay with her for a weekend, we had never met before, we went to see A-ha in concert :D Can't believe my parents let me go
I haven't changed much - now I just meet up with strangers I meet on the internet instead
I've met a few of my cyber pen-pals. Never had a proper letter pen pal so this is really cool. :D
Well you are strange. :D
I've never liked the whole penpal thing.... I met a friend on Holiday once and we wrote a few letters but I could never think what to write. He went on a 2nd holiday to Dubai that year and sent me a fish tooth that he found on the beach there. I stopped writing to him after that.
I do like cyber penpals, I've never met up with anyone from Secrets but I have met quite a few people from tortoise groups and there has only been 1-2 occasions where I didn't like who I met, unfortunatley :( However that wouldn't happen with the people here, I like everyone too much :D
