Golden what?

by Jean

People lover seeks pen pals.

I'm 75, but have a hard time relating to that, as I feel so much younger.

I've been married for 46 years, one son, no grandkids.

we have a Yorkie, and two very sassy cats, who are litter mates.I like to read, go for walks, go to church, and out to lunch with friends.

Be a Friend with a Pacific Island Lady

Hello there! I am a young lady of 55, from a beautiful Pacific island of 20+ population. I am a widow, mother of two young men who are both in USA. I love meeting new people and making friends. What I like most about having a penpal (same age or older) is to share about my work, our interesting culture and beauty of this tiny island nation.

50 Something wanting snail mail (female only) friends

by ann
(gaylord michigan)

I am an innkeeper and a nurse. My husband and I bought a small motel/bed and breakfast 10 years ago. Its been a major lifestyle change. Finally after 10 years I think we have made the adjustment. I also continue to work part time as a nurse in an assisted living facility.

I am an animal lover and if I ever win the lottery big, I want to get my hobby farm and fill it with animals. Right now Sparky, a golden retriever and Gizzy a bichon/maltese mix put a smile on my face every day.

I enjoy reading, writing long letters, knitting, scrapbooking, photography, flower and herb gardening, bird feeding and watching.

I hope to hear from you.

Yarn, cat and garden geeker....

by Mary Ann
(Medford, Oregon)

Hi: My name is Mary Ann. I live in So. Oregon and am remarried for the 2nd time. 1st husb died of cancer in 1997. I'm age 65 and I'm looking for friendship with people that have interests common with mine.

I do crafts, knitting and crochet. I have pets. 5 cats and one small dog. I'm not a hoarder. Folks say they would never know I have a house full of animals as I keep both them and my home clean, clean, clean and well cared for.

My husb, now 71 goes out most all mornings and naps every afternoon so I get lonely and lack communication with others. My daughter died at age 37 in 2011. She and I were close. But now she is gone. But that is in my past and it's time to move on and heal.

I have a Japanese pen pal I have been communicating with since 2000 and my best pal who lives in Seattle I also met as a pen pal in 1999. So I'm trying again to find friends. I like the outdoors, flower gardening and would travel if I could afford to do so.

So this is my thumbnail bio...
Write me if you wish.. I am here....

e-mail address is NuStrt3 at

Wendy: Mary Ann, if you do snail mail, this is my pen pal site: Friendship by Mail

by Gillian McMillan
(Raymond, Alberta, Canada)

My Name is Gillian and I live in a small town in Southern Alberta, its a lovely place, but it can get lonely especially after living in a lively city like Calgary.

When I was eleven I became interested in writing to pen pals - well, now I'm sixty and I still like writing and would like to renew my interest in this fun activity - How about writing to me?

I'm married and have seven children and nine grandchildren, which I dont see as often as I would like.

I've many interests, including letter, reading, gardening, geneology and history.

Waiting to hear from you -

I'm a First Generation Baby Boomer, Dad Must Have Been Happy the War Was Over

by Michael
(Carson City, Nevada)

Greetings Fellow Senior Pen Palites,

Don't know where to begin so I'll begin anywhere. The nuts and bolts, I'm a young 65 male retiree who finds aging and retirement a real blessing.

I;m divorced and living alone without so much as a goldfish for company but am pretty independent and self-sufficient so it all works out. Lets see what else, I'm a practicing Zen Buddhist and I plan on practing until I get it right:-)

In my other life I was a teacher and the last 23 years was an education consultant with the Nevada Department of Education. I was also an instructor at the University of Nevada, Reno. My roots are the mid-west (Kansas) but have lived on the East coast band the last 35 years out West.

That's enough about me. I enjoy e-mail connections and would love to hear from folks regarding any topic or none at all. If you are so inclined, give me a write.

You all have a wonderful life (I think that was a movie).

Hello future penpals

My name is Tangie, I'm 49 preparing for the golden years, you know the years after all the kids are gone, my last one leaves next year.

I've never been married, in fact, been single for the last 15 - 16 years scared of being hurt, I'm somewhat of a quiet person but I'm ready to open up now. i just want to talk to people/adults.

I don't have friends as I don't trust people much and the dum games they play so i'm more of a loner.

I love music all kind except opera, love movies, never really travel but would love too - oo yeah I LOVE BINGO.

For a few years now I been feeling amazingly loney but didn't know what to do I figure penpaling is a safe way to meet friends and build trust in people again so here I am I hope someone is willing to talk to me.

I CAN BE REACHED AT:tangelco at

Thanks for taking the time to read my note

A book worm looks for a warm and cozy human

by Anettai


I'm a married woman with a middle-sized dog and a long hair cat in a residential area.

If I only had mystery books at hand, I should be so happy all the time.

I like to enjoy indulging in reading books in particular of "Solitude" in a large city or "exquisite psychological descriptions".

Would like to come across a good pen pal who writes to each other on this amazing site.

Too lonely in my cave! Help...

by Eva Thompson
(Franklin NC)

I am here in this area and feel isolated. I have a friend, and feel we're from two different planets at time. Guess that's why I like her so much. She's from the city. I'm from the country. That's O.K.. By the way we have the same name too,first and last. What a sense of humor God has,huh?

My husband was from the City and so great to me. I know he had the spirit of God.

Enough about me. Please someone write to me. I would love to be a friend to some you out there. Maybe we can share something. Recipes?

"Retired!!!" Then why am I still working to enjoy life?! I guess it is just an age thing!!!

by Lou

Hi, My name is Lou and I have posted on Wendy's site before... but that is before I realized what "retirement" really meant. I now realize there are many forms of retirement.

There is the "retirement" when you and your special other can take off and enjoy life and the wonders of the world!!

Then there is the retirement when you reach that magical age but still must work! It all has to do with choices we made in life!

So as we realize that and accept where we are, life isn't so bad. I am just wondering if there is anyone else out there that is of the age of "retirement, but not hireable" that still work.

Social security is not enough to "live" on so we must still work to have a life where we do not depend on the government to take care of us. I am not complaining by any means. I am happy and very blessed in my life. I can't travel the world but I feel blessed and enjoy the birds that sing to me, the flowers that bloom and smile at me.

I have a GREAT family and God has blessed me in ways I can not count!!!

I live in Texas, I am 72 Years "young"! I am a nanny for a family of 4 wonderful little ones. I love my job and look forward to getting up each morning. I have a positive look on life. I like to do creative crafts, reading (all kinds of books!), love music (all kinds). I like being outdoors and enjoying Gods gifts of nature. I have four grown sons, 8 grandchildren!

Would love to talk to others that are really blessed to be able to only afford "Gods gifts"!

Looking for a few new friends from around the world!

by Linda
(West Palm Beach, Fl. USA)

Hi, my name is Linda. My husband, Frank & I have been married 26 years. We live in West Palm Beach, Florida. We are retired from banking. Frank was my bosses boss at the bank we worked at, in Fort Lauderdale back in the 80's. We don't have any children. We do have two young cats, Patchee & Poco, who we adopted from the local shelter. They are spoiled rotten, like all pets should be!

My favorite thing to do is work in my sewing room. I have a sewing machine that is also an embroidery machine. I make children's quilt for a charity here in WPB. Sometimes I put embroidered butterflies or flowers on the quilts. I've also made a few things & then sold them on eBay, just for fun.

My husband has moderate Alzheimer's. I have someone that helps me care for him during the day. The evenings are lonely for me. I'd love to have a few new pen pals to "talk" to about anything & everything! I would like to hear all about your life & family & hobbies. I am not looking for anything more than friendship.

I look forward to hearing from friends I haven't met yet! My email address is
