Do you have a pen pal (snail mail)?

I miss having people to write to :( Just wondering how many mommy's on here do have a pen pal (or more than one). How did you get/meet your pen pal?

  • It does take time to sit down and write a letter but so does being on cm. It livens the heart to open your mailbox to find a letter versus the dreaded bills.

  • My best friend is my pen pal :) We never talk or anything anymore. She moved away because of a problem with drugs, which only got worse and worse after she left. I think she became to embarrassed to talk to me, or ashamed. She does alot of "hopping" around the US, and we started sending postcards to each other, she loves the Oregon Coast, so whenever I head there I buy her some post cards and send them her way. We do holiday cards, and letters here and there. We dont talk intimately about our lives, but I am glad we keep in touch in this way at least :)

  • No. I would love to have a pen-pal via email though. I just cant say I have what it takes to be a good pen pal via snail mail. I have tried several pan-pal sites with no luck.

  • I've had the same penpal since 1974. We are more like family now. I still get excited when I see an envelope with her handwriting on it.

  • No, I haven't had one since I was in elementary school. I think it would be fun.

  • I used to, years ago. It started in the summer time, and when school started, we lost touch :( It was fun, though!

  • Yes, I have a pen-pal I met on here at CM. We have become very close although we have never met face to face. We do speak on the phone every now and then. Many people are just too busy to take the time to write a nice letter.

  • You could always write a soldier ... there are plenty of mommy soldiers out there that would LOVE a pen pal.

    this might help
