Finding penfriends

I understand what you are saying Wendy but once you have vetted the new members would it be possible to have a section where members can state their interest to be a penfriend. They would need to sign in to write or read in this section. By all means keep your email address rule. That's good.
If you already have a section like this, it isn't easy to find.

Wendy: WOW, Marie, I GET IT! I think... I can add a Pen Pal Ads section in the forum, so they are still safe. If anyone wants new pals, visit that specific group and write to them. Hmmm... that never dawned on me! Thanks! I will do that right now!

I can understand Nancy introducing herself the way she did. It's a bit daunting to pick any member at random and ask them to be a penfriend. Is this the best method we have?

Wendy: YES, I can't figure out another safe way. I used to publish them all here, online, but many started to get scammer emails. I was afraid someone might think them real, they are convincing!

Now I personally approve every person into the community (850+ of them), and thusfar it's worked well. Retirees join it to find chatty friends...
