I am a 65 year old retired woman and trying to adjust to this new way of life. I thought that having a pen pal from a different area would be fun and enlightening.

Lover of animals and some people

by Carol

Here I go again. I have lost all my pen pal friends to Facebook. I am not on Facebook and am looking for people like me that just want e-mail pen pals.

I am very young at heart, have many interests and love life. I don't care what age you are as long as you are alive and kicking you should have a smile on your face and count your blessings. There are always blessing to count all you have to do is look for them. I will tell you more about myself if you choose to contact me.

Hi desert goddess in love with Joshua trees

by Elaine

My pen name is Neteret and I have written close to a half a million words if not more. Only a few have been published in real books; the rest are online. Many are risque and some are demented. I am currently in the throes of starting my second book that takes place in ancient Egypt.

Besides writing and gardening (a useless exercise in my case) I hand sew quilts for the local battered women's shelter.

Favorite tv shows are crime stories. All time favorite was CSI: Miami and now it's cancelled. Yay for DVDs! Next favorites are history documentaries from dinosaurs through ancient Rome.

Other than the above, I don't do much socializing but I have done the penpal thing since I was in high school and love it. I only have one now and, after six years, she is losing interest. I only stop writing to people who insist I join in their political agendas and mindlessly forward junk mail to me. Otherwise I love hearing of other people's daily lives and thoughts.

Hoping my box is flooded with emails at neteret_neteret at

Molly's Pal

by Marjorie

Hi my name is Marjorie. I live in Southeastern Oklahoma and have all of my life. . I am married with four grown married children that have children of their own, and that’s makes me a grandparent. Of course none of them live near me, so I don’t get to see them very often. I will be a great grandma in September from one of my granddaughters.

I am interested in meeting women or men just to have conversation. And hear how other people live their lives. I earned my associate degree in 2007 in early childhood education. I was 59 years old at the time. I love to learn new things. I have a beautiful cat name Molly that keeps me busy.

My favorite book and movie is Gone With the Wind. I like the comedy sitcoms but I don’t like reality shows.
Well I hope to have some pen pals real soon.

Content Country Desires E-Mail Pals

by Ethel
(CA. Central Coast, USA)

1/30/2012  70th BD

1/30/2012 70th BD

Hi! I've lived in Central CA. since 1980, sharing my old building with a business tenant in front, myself in "middle" and a relative in the back "unit" ... works out really well for me.

Picture is of my 70th birthday@ my son's family home in So. CA.

I enjoy a simplified & quiet lifestyle, sometimes walking 3 blocks to P.O., & drive 10 miles to Walley-Mart a couple times a month.

I've recently started taking advantage of In Touch Ministries daily devotionals on line, getting my day off to a good start.

Empress the cat is outdoors in summer, nights inside in winter ... good mouser.

My Oregon daughter & I chat a couple times a week.
There are about 2000 souls in this rural town.
I take full advantage of living alone, enjoying TV westerns,mysteries (no horror movies!), american greed, news ... I use that term loosely.

Am trying to get used to small laptop computer, considering it a wonderful tool for those of us spending long periods of time @ home.

That's pretty much it .. Best to All!

Warm Regards, Ethel

May, 2012

I'd like a couple of new penpals (female and/or single male) who like to write and receive letters often, via pencil/pen, or type/printout, postal mail. If wanted, we can exchange emails in between letters. If we get along well, perhaps we could exchange a future phone conversation.

I'm 64, a passionate personality, sometimes sew, watch some tv, go to some movies, have a tiny flower garden. Haven't socialized for a few years, for various reasons. Am divorced, have children and grandchildren, two cats.

We don't need to have the same hobbies or lifestyles or family setups. We simply need to be human together, and a friendship will develop if it is meant to.

To find out if we are penpal compatible, contact me at livedotcom, palegold.

JeanGrits ---Girl Raised in the South ---- Seeks New Friends

I'm new at this pen pal thing. Although the idea of making a new friends is quite exciting. I find as I get older friends become more valuable and I'm really looking forward to hearing from you.
I retired last year at the age of 62 and transferred from Portland Oregon to Idaho to be closer to my oldest daughter. I've always wanted to have lots of time for the computer, now that I do... I thought Pen Paling would be a delightful way to make new friends.
I'm anxiously waiting to hear from you, my email address is LJW914 at

by Ardis
(New Hampshire)

Retired life is only OK, have been for almost a year.

I love long drives, cooking for family and friends, decorating my home on Holidays, doing research about anything on my PC.

Have been trying to diet but not a success yet.

Would like to make spending money cause retirement does not allow for any extras, any ideas? I have problems walking fast or far.

Would like to communicate with others male or female, like to learn new things and talk about just anything. I am friendly and would love to share ideas about life, cooking, crafts, or anything else that is of interest.
I have been divorced for long time.
