I tend to be cautious about having male pen pals because most sites are like meat markets. As a female you add you profile and you get all the male population requesting to write you. I’m not saying all men that are on the pen pal sites are bad but the bad ones make it hard for the men who are sincere into just making pen pal friends. You just have to be cautious on who you decide to respond to if you choose as a female to have male pen pals.
One site I posted to lets you recieve messages and they email you and let you know someone left you a message. So last night I got a message from a guy in the UK and my first knee jurk reaction was to not even read it and just delete it. But something stopped me and I decided to read it anyways. This guy told me he was from the UK and he saw we had some things on my profile in common. Such as anime, mmorpgs and he was a cat person and I had 2 cats. I was a bit shocked that there was a male who responded intelligently to my profile and his tag line was not “hey baby”. I was very pleased with this and sent him a quick line a one of my email addresses. He again responded in a well thought out intelligent response and understood why I was hessitant to respond. So when my eyes get more awake I can start writting a letter to him since he passed me on his mail address. He seems kind of new to this so I’ll chatter at him in the letter and let him know more about me and how to have fun with letter writing. I forgot, though, to give him my real name. LOL. Let’s pray this goes well since I have a good feeling about this one. 🙂 Toodles all.
