Senior Pen Pals: why don't they write back?
Hi Wendy, I would like you to tell me what you think about a person who says they are interested in being a pen pal and then you don't hear from them? Mary
Unfortunately, with email, it happens. Someone might get too many requests (and you'd hope they'd simply hit REPLY and say "I'm sorry, but...." With email -- it's so easy to find pals, but there are so many other distractions on the internet, more pals, more websites, facebook and many offline issues to (life, illness or hospitalization, family issues, death) -- some people either forget or simply move on,. it's sad.
If your pal had medical issues -- write one more about being concerned and if anyone checks their email, they might update you on whats happening... just a thought.
Having said that -- I wrote to one man for 15 years, daily, on the internet.... he was single in Colorado, I was married in Michigan, 30 years younger than him, but our souls bonded. He came and stayed in my home twice a year for a long weekend for many years and Terry and I toured parts of Co with him as our guide. Just keep finding pals, more pals, and you'll find a great bunch of wonderful friends that you can chat with daily!
It does happen!!!
