Hello everyone!

 

My name is Trisha. I’m here to look for a pen pal or a few. A little bit about me, I am almost 30 and from Oklahoma. I am also a librarian; who loves to read! I enjoy cooking, baking, gardening, and puzzles. 

I look forward to hearing from you all! 
Have a great weekend! 🙂

Hello Alice,

 

I got your message via the AARP pen pals website and tried to reply with a private message to you, but it was not enabled, so I am posting this instead.  You sound like an interesting person so I am responding to your recent post which I saw just a few minutes ago.  I am an early retired professional, divorced male, age 67, living in an upscale suburb of Memphis TN.  I am not seeking a "date" or anything like that, just friendship and exchange of ideas. I am educated and articulate.  I have read a lot and still enjoy reading.  I also have a German shepherd named Gracie and through her, I have really come to love dogs.  Also, as you can probably imagine, she makes for a great security system.  You can try being my new pen pal by *personal information removed* Please let me hear from you!  Thanks.  - Alan

Thank you so much for your help.  I hope it works (as you probably suspect, I'll let you know early on if it doesn't!0.  I swear, however, that I did not do anything to cause it.  I did not know the first thing about it.

FYI -- I just got a copy of Sharon's post just below to Roger posted to my private email, if that sheds any light on your website problem.  Please try to fix this!

Hi Roger--

Many problems have arisen on the penpal site.  Hope this quarantine is too depressing for you! It sure has thrown me for a loop. Not enjoying it at all. I am a retired teacher living in S.CA.  It's a stuggle to keep busy since most of our usual activites have been cut off. So what are you doing with time?  How are you staying busy?.  Not much of a TV person.  I am a writer though, and my co-writer and I are working on a script about the Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, NV.  We took a trip there in January and heard an assortment of cowboy poets (men and women).  Some of their work was astonishly good and the cowboys shuttle you around from location to location to attend the readings.Even the weather was friendly for that time of year.  So fill me in on your life. Until then-- stay safe-- Sharon

Good morning, @AlanG700989 @BevC921141 @RogerR775369 and to all the penpal enthusiasts joining in this discussion!

 

You may not realize, "PENPALS" was started by @SIMPLEGAL a few years back (in Feb. 2016 to be exact). It all started with this post by SIMPLEGAL, "Please post a reply if you would like to be penpals." This is a public forum and can be a way to meet new friends and have online penpals. A bit of housekeeping: To protect your privacy, please do not post publicly your email address.

 

I've read posts saying that the site is confusing. One thing that I find to be very helpful is to "tag" the person(s) you are addressing (just as I have in the start of this message). This helps everyone know who you are answering.

  • Tagging is easy! Simply type the "@" symbol on your keyboard. This will bring up a menu of usernames. Click the on name to tag the person you wish to address. When notifications are enabled, the person will receive an email letting them know they've been mentioned in the discussion.

 

We're glad to have all of your participation in the AARP Online Community. Please let me know if this was helpful information to you. Have a great day!
