  • No. I have a pen pal in Italy that I met 20 years ago on the train. Now he's a facebook friend.

  • I think that is awesome! Whoever said it was just for kids is WEIRD. I would love to have a penpal.

  • No I don't see anything odd about it. Great way to broaden knowledge or just create a great friendship. I don't see why it should be constricted by age.

  • No. My 70 yo SIL has been a pen pale with a lady in New Zealand for 40 years. She loves the letter writing.
