    Writing emails isn't bad, either...But as you said yourself, letters are more heartful. (=

    Welcome, Gandzia! Hope you'll enjoy your stay. (:

    I write every day, letters quite often. Letters=great.. you just feel really great when you recieve them, so special and loved. Plus it's good to see ink. Real writing makes you feel connected to other human beings.

    I only have two penpals at the moment, too. And we don't really write all that regularly because we usually write 5 or more pages and it just takes all of us some time. It's still awesome though because we actually "talk". I hate those one page-5 lines letters that only contain casual BS you would also write on a quickly written picture postcard from a holiday in Spain...

    In conclusion: I need more penpals like that =)

    Glad to see a group like this exists. Sometimes I feel like an odd ball. Yearly, I write letters to 20 people and never get an actual letter from them.

    But I have been faithfully writing a lady I know for the past 7 years. She will be 80 years old. It has been great developing this relationship with her.

    My other friends are just straight up trifling. Every one I know tells me to call them. I never do. They are so mad at me but I despise the phone. Sad thing is that I see the phone ringing and I only pick up if it is family.

    He he.

    Wow, that is very impressive. o_o May I ask how you actually got to know her?

    Same goes for me, I understand you very well here.

  • Letters reminds me past times. also writing letters is more meaningful than the others.

    @Summer Night Train..

    --> I worked with the 80 year old lady when I was living in the midwest [Iowa, USA]. I helped her with some paper work that she needed to get done.

    Unfortunately she does not have any family but I am glad she came to my school to get some help. Although she tested my nerves a lot by calling me at the school's office every morning straight for 2 years, it was because she was bored and lonely. Now, that I have have completed my program she may call me once a month.


    Topics of our letters are pretty broad. But she has told me everything about herself. She is a sweet person. I just wish her family that is alive appreciated her. But, that is life.

    And with the telephone, my younger years killed me staying on the phone all the time. Now, I just prefer writing a letter or an email.

    I will talk to very few people but I do not have an hour to talk about nothing. Some people need to respect your time. That is why I prefer writing. You write and respond when you have time. That's easier!

    Hi :)

    I like writing letters. It gives a much more personal touch rather than just opening an email. I like the feeling when I receive a package (from my dear penpal),the feeling of excitement,curiousity and happiness feels good I can't explain it xD And the letter is probably one of the best parts, it makes you feel closer even if their really far away. :')

    Yes, it's really that you feel closer to the person who wrote to you when you receive a letter. e-mails for me are only to exchange information quickly or something like this... it's not to stay in touch or a base for friendship, to me...

  • I have a few really great penpals that I love to death. Getting a letter just makes my day. I feel so honored that someone out there spent time sharing their thoughts with me. And maybe I have internet amnesia but whenever someone emails me as soon as I hit the little red [x] it's like the conversation never happened; I forget almost everything! With letters I can just pull them out and re-read whenever I want.

    Hi. I really think getting a letter is nicer than getting an email. I really like when my friends are down, buying them a nice card and filling it with inspiring song lyrics. It's more personal, not to mention it's also marking down history and creating primary resources. I love stamps, too, because through stamps, you can see what a country as a whole values and could learn about their history. I don't write letters nearly as much as I used to, but I still love it. No one really consistently writes me back, except a friend in Holland, but it takes a long time, and we've had problems with letters getting lost in the mail, which is horrible when you've spent hours writing pages upon pages.

  • I'm really surprised there is such a group on last.fm!

    Over 300 members... I'm not sure if that's a lot but it's really nice that I'm not the only one letter-writing-freak in the world :)

    So hello everyone!

    Hello topic that needs to be refreshed... I'm not writing as many letters as I used to - actually, I'm writing only to my old friend now. There are many reasons, one of them is my horrible handwriting ;] but this group made me feel so sentimental... and I'm thinking about writing 3 people now. Letters may help me to reunite with them!
