What You Are Requesting:
How many penpals do you want? Around 10
Do you want emails? No
Do you want snail-mail? Sure.
Length of letters? Depends on who I'm writing, usually around 10 pages.
How quick are you to respond: within a month
Male or Female? Doesn’t matter.
Age? Close to my age
From where? Anywhere.
What are you looking for with your pen pal? A friend who I can talk about anything with who wont stop writing after 1 or 2 letters. I'm not looking for a pen pal collector who writes form letters or who will respond to my long letter with a one page memo.
Leave me a comment or email me at email@example.com
-Age: 28 (but I'll turn 29 this month. *yay*)
-Location: Odense, Denmark
-Occupation: Student at the university of Southern Denmark. Religion (religion history) is my major and history is my minor. I am currently working on my M. A. thesis which is a mix between folklore, religion, history and social science, i guess.
-Main interests: penpalling, gardening, living a low-impact life (though i don't want to go extreme with this), learning (about) languages, history, religion, reading books, crafting (knitting, crocheting, polymer clay, collages, decorating notebooks/boxes/other items.... etc), stamp collecting and a lot of other things... :)
-What genres of music are you into? My fav genres are black metal, death metal, folk/viking metal but my fav bands are the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Deep Purple... I also listen to some punk, pop, electronic music and rock.
-Favorite books: I love all i've ever read from the Danish author Kenneth Bøgh Andersen (he writes fantasy and horror stories), but I also really like the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (some day after i've graduated from the uni, i will finally find the time to read the complete series!) and the Spook's Books by Joseph Delaney. Besides fantasy i prefer to read
non-fiction books. I am currently reading a book about fossil finds in Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire but have also just recently read books about mindfullness, living green, slavery, horror comedy movies and... i guess this indicates that when it comes to non-fiction I am open to almost all themes. LOL.
I am currently really really interested in pre-Christian Scandinavia, Scandinavian folklore and green living
-Favorite movies: The two all-time fav movies are "Nosferatu" and "Freaks". I do like b/w movies a lot (especially the horror-ones) but i like a lot of genres. I like horror movies a lot (though I've had this accidental ability to avoid some of the VERY famous ones like "nightmare on elm street" and "friday the 13th"), i also love a good (well... bad. LOL) action movie, comedies (in the "genre" where "Ace Ventura" and "Kung Pow" belong), some fantasy movies, lots of thrillers and... recently i've found a liking of old war-movies.
-Describe your ideal penpal: My ideal penpal should be willing to write long letters (i personally write letters that usually are 10-25 pages long), he/she must write handwritten letters (i always write by hand), he/she must be ok with the fact that i sometimes am a bit late (though never more than about 4 months) with my letters as sometimes other things in my life are more important than writing letters (this of course also means that i am perfectly fine with my pals being a little late with letters from time to time, too), we must share at least some interests ( i find it really hard to write with people i have nothing in common with) and he/she must be ok with the fact that i can sometimes be very direct and honest in my letters (i've had some bad experinces with this before so i need to make this clear. I never ask about something or make a comment just to hurt my pal.... i do it because i am interested in the answer and i am interested in getting to know my pal better). Oh, and I need my new pen pal to be ok with the fact that i rarely write questions in my letters, so just comment on whatever you want to in my letters :D
I think this is the main things in an ideal pen pal for me. This also hopefully give my new pen pals an idea about what "kind" of pen pal I am. :)
-What age do you want them to be? I'd prefer them to be about 27-32. If you're older/younger than this and think that we could really get a good friendship still, please convince me to be your new pen pal ;)
-What sex do you want them to be? Either
-What country do you want them to be from? Anywhere, really. :)
I have made a new community for people particularly interested in swapping stationery of any kind, journals and friendship books. If you're one such an individual, please check it out!
Hope to see you around! :)

Tattoos/Piercings: A green outline of a heart on my left hip and I hope to get more, but I'm a big baby and an even bigger geek, so all I can think of to put on me are Rubik's Cubes and Mario references ^^' I have three piercings in my right ear and two in my left.
About Me: Hi there! My name is Alyssa and I'm a 19-year-old novelist slash entrepreneur slash film-maker studying film in college. I'm a straight A student and I work on campus in the library assisting people with copying, printing, and other computer related issues.
I love music and creativity and art, and I'm a very non-judgemental person. I tend to write lengthy letters (I have roughly 12 other snail mail penpals who I keep in touch with around every 2 weeks, and I'm serious about keeping in touch with them frequently) and sometimes include little gifts I make.
I love to do arts and crafts and sew and am always trying to be better at it. I have an Etsy shop and have actually sold things both there and in multiple craft shows. Amazing, I know! I like to make purses and hoodies but unfortunately my sewing machine is a piece of crap from WalMart and it broke. Again. Le sigh. So I won't be able to sew much until I get it fixed, but I'll still design purses with hidden pockets and reversible hoodies with fairy tale themes.
I'm a huge geek. I play video games, collect and play Pokemon cards, play board games at game night on campus, am part of the gaming group on campus, and can kick some serious butt as Kirby on Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Melee. I also play role-playing games such as Pathfinder and Dungeons & Dragons, typically 3.5e but potentially 4e.
Did I mention that I love to listen to music? And I love to bake and cook so I'm always experimenting with recipes and such. I have signature dishes of all varieties, such as Italian Parmasean-encrusted chicken, homemade General Tso's Chicken, tarragon encrusted pork chops, and crab, tomato, and zucchini pasta in a garlic white sauce.
I'm big into fantasy and supernatural movies, books, and shows, but I also really enjoy a good thriller or law-related plot. If you want to know more, ask away! =) I'm very open, so I'll answer pretty much anything. I can't guarantee an amusing or in-depth response, but I'll generally respond. =D
Main Interests: writing, drawing, film-making, listening to music, Hello Kitty, fashion, sewing, arts and crafts, online comics, cooking, dreaming
Music: I love indie rock and alternative music. Occasionally I'll take an interest in pop artists (Lady Gaga, Katy Perry) but I love bands like The Pigeon Detectives, The Postal Service, Uh Huh Her, Phantogram, Staind, Metric, The Veronicas, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Matt and Kim, Sublime, We Are Scientists, Ok Go, A Day to Remember, Priscilla Ahn, Cascada, Muse, Deftones, Radiohead, and Jem.
Movies: Closet Land, The Science of Sleep, Ink, Mirrormask, Spaceballs, City of Lost Children, Invisible Circus, Almost Famous, The Dark Knight, Pan's Labyrinth, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Disney movies, Pixar movies, and many, many more. 28 Days Later is my favorite zombie movie evar. Also, I adore the Saw series and Harry Potter.
Books/Authors: The Onion Girl, Blue Girl, (anything by Charles de Lint), Thirteen Reasons Why, The Hunger Games trilogy, Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Tamora Pierce's Wild Magic series, Fahrenheit 451

Where do you want them to be from? I'd prefer from the USA. Of course, if you really want to be penpals and you're from out of the States we could probably work something out. =)
What age do you want them to be? 17-32
What kind of penpal are you looking for?: I'm basically looking for someone to share the hard times and the happy times with. Someone who will understand me and allow me to understand them. I want a penpal who will be my friend, who will exchange secrets and little presents or drawings, writings, photography, and other goodies with. Someone who will recommend music, artists, movies, and fashion advice to me. The longer you make your letters, the better, in my opinion! I've never had a male penpal before but I'm open to it. Obviously I'm looking mainly for a snail mail penpal. I love to collect a physical letter in an envelope and I have boxes full of letters from my other penpals. No such thing as too many penpals, right? Right!
What do you like to swap?: I exchange pictures, stickers, CDs, stationery, jewelry, and sometimes other things such as nail polish, perfume, purses, wallets, etc.
