I am not an AARP member but am just looking for people who are interested in receiving a letter or postcard, or exchanging them, during this strange time.
I am not sure how to receive/send messages here and it seems we can't post our e-mail addresses, but if you know how to respond and are interested, please do!
I have 2 dogs, 2 rabbits, 5 chickens and 4 acres. Hope to hear from someone who could use a piece of mail to brighten their day!
Hi there! My name is Lily and I am looking for a penpal. I'm 65 and have been pretty active and independent all my life. I divorced at a late age and I'm trying to navigate life post divorce. I would like to share and enjoy someone's perspective on a lot of different subjects and in life in general. I've been in the field of behavior health most of my life and find people of all walks of life interesting. I believe that we can manifest our future and try to stay positive and in the moment. I like to travel and create special memories and enjoy friends and family as often as i can. I also like my down time and can marathon some new show on Netflicks and order in some good Chinese food. I am comfortable alone and with others. I have sisters and a lot of friends that are like sisters. I have brothers and male friends that have been like brothers so I'm comfortable with either.
I thought of seeking a pen pal due to the corona virus and not being able to go out and enjoy the outdoors, classes and volunteering.
Hi Lily, my name is Don. You sound like you are both sensitive and intelligent. That you are interested in a ‘a lot of different subjects’ is an attraction. I am 79 and my body is in marginal condition, but the volume of my email writing may be wearing on my four grandchildren. My working life was as a mathematician programmer.
I’ve been retired for nearly twenty years; the most time was spent in México.
I believe that sapiens is at a branching point in our evolutionary journey
I enjoy two-way rational communication on a variety of topics:
Spirituality, I’m a Catholic who is open to Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, e.t.c. But not the social gatherings of any faith or any version of materialism. I have little patience with religious extremists of all faiths.
Liberal politics- (anti-Trump) however, if conservatism is ‘taking the safest path’, then I’m a conservative supporting Andrew Wang.
Physics, especially the spiritual connotations of quantum theory, such as the relationship between the big-bang and quantum entanglement is of great interest.
Evolution and philosophy of change, Lamarckian evolution, epigenetic, punctuated equilibrium are common reading genre.
I’ll will try to post this but I’m unclear about the procedures.
Hello Lily I would like to be your pen pal. I am 56 years old. I work as a Nursing Assistant for 17 years. I have been dealing with our current situation by taking up adult coloring,watching tv shows I have been missing for a while because of working a lot of hours. I have always wanted a pen pal so nows my time to do it.
During this time of social distancing let's take an opportunity to connect online!
Hope to hear from you SOON!!!
Let's be penpals!
Good Morning , and Happy Easter. Hope you have a joyously wonderful day.
If you made a big Easter dinner and sharing with a love one enjoy be Thankful
and much happiness to you and yours!. If possible we can cultivate a friendship
by penpal in the mean time. Enjoy The Day!
Hope you are doing well! I am doing pretty good, just taking this whole situation one day at a time, like everyone else! Just thankful to be able to be healthy, and still be working. I hope thigns are still going well in your world!

Hi, there! My name is Barbara and I live in Orange County, CA. Would love to be a penpal. I'm divorced, mom of three, grandma of one. Working full time in the legal field. Not sure how to communicate on this feed and arrange to write. I don't want to post my address here on this feed.
Happy holidays, everyone!

I am a bit older but from your post that doesn't seem to matter. I am 67 and am a retired engineer. I would enjoy a younger person's point of view. I have many interests.... I love boating, I have three boats and lived in my sailboat for four years, I ride motorcycles, fish, camp, when I camp it obviously has to include water. I SCUBA dive and use to skydive. I have a passion for growing house plants and gardening. I have over one hundred house plants, some I don't even know their names. I also enjoy reading. Well enough about me for now I would enjoy hearing snit you and your interests. You are more than welcome to email me at j[email removed for security purposes--contact via private message here, if desired]
