Hello , Don't know how to navigate this process or how my message will go through. I am a retired RN  age 72  year old active African American who has been a widow for 7 years. I enjoy social interactions with my retired coworkers but unfortunately we are not able to do much of that due to the pandemic.

I do a bit of travelling with my friends. My last trip was a cruise on the Queen Victoria where I met my friend in London and we both went on a most enjoyable cruise. She had recently lost her husband and we had always travelled together. I might add that I lived in London  for 10 years so I still have family ties there.

Anyway, if this message goes through I would love to hear from you. It gets lonely at times despite phone calls to friends.

I’m not sure if I’m doing this pen pal correctly or not. This posting is so huge how do you know when someone respond to your pen pal posting and how do someone send you and email. I really would like to communicate with someone

Hi Valerie,

 

I just go this through my email. If you want my email I can give it to you and we can communicate that way.

Hope you see this.

Hello I was online and due to the pandemic and not being able to go out as well as meet new people,so I guess online is the best way now.If we can go to church as well as school online may as well meet and email others online.I've been an AARP member 20+ years and never knew they had a penpal site.I've always gone to the mall or park to meet and talk with others but since the pandemic and social distances,it's not as safe as it once was.I'm looking to email others wth any interest.I like to read,cook,fish and walk around the neighborhood or in the park.I would love to try hiking and camping once everything clear up and we're able to mingle again.I'm 68 years old and married and looking for friends and penpals.

Hi Johnnie, I tried sending a message earlier but I don't think it went through so I will try again.

  I am new to pen pal so we can learn together.

I'll be 67 next week so we should have some of the same memories of what the world was like as we grew up.

 I've been with my wife for 29 yrs and do to her medical problems  we stay home and away from the public and like you said social interaction and I miss people.

 We live outside a small town in southern Oregon and I saw you like to fish, me to, small streams,  river, lakes, ocean although the last 3 times on the ocean I got sea sick and not willing to go out again. I am a retired machinist, like my old cars and lots of other interests. 

 Let me know if you would like to chat

Rick

@RickB691367  It looks like your Private Messaging has been turned off so you are not able to receive Private Messages. You should let AARP know if you’d like it enabled. I let @JohnnieJ752129 know you are trying to get in touch with him regarding being pen pals. In the future, if you type the @ symbol as well as the complete user name, that person will receive notification that they have been mentioned in a post

A friend in the AARP Community,

Linda

So I was reading about pen pals in The NY Times this lovely Sunday morning and thought it might be fun.  I have many interests and I’m a writer/editor, avid reader, Baker, cook, foodie, animal lover, et. al.  If you’re interested in a purely platonic interaction, pm me.  🌹

Good afternoon, 

 

I am looking for pen pals. One that doesn't mind email. I was thinking of making it a weekly, biweekly, or monthly correspondence depending on their schedules. During these times, I feel that it is a good time to reach out to people and make friends. A little about me, I am recently married and almost 31 years old. We have two cats and a dog. I have been called an "old soul" my entire life which may be why I studied history and library science in college. I love history, listening and telling stories. I am really into puzzles, reading, gardening, baking, and crafts. I am currently learning cross stitch and crochet. 

Thank you! I look forward to hearing you all! Have a happy holidays:)

Hello Dave - Saw your message.  Am at a loss about your "profile" (age, interests, etc.)  Have lost track of this site (I applied a few years ago) and just ran across it lately.  Reply if you would like.  Claire

First I must apologize to everyone, specifically to those who responded, but my EMail send all those messages to JUNK and I did not know, sorry.

 

So I would like to try this again, please?

 

I am disabled so PenPals are very important and gives me something to look forward to, until I can get my cyborg-body and transfer my brain - LOL?

 

Until then would love a stress and fault free exchange of ideas, thoughts and feeling, hope I hear from you?

 

Fingers crossed you and those you love are healthy, happy and safe from this from the virus.

Take care, be safe but have some fun,

Joseph....

Hello Joseph,    I see that your post is the most recent, compared to all the other ones I see.  I say this because, I figure that people who posted a long time ago, they already have "enough penpals" and therefore won't bother to answer.  Well, I'm won't write a lot here, since I don't even know if you'll get this and/or respond. But, I'll just say that I'm retired and living in southern GA. I'm a huge animal lover and I enjoy reading and cooking.

                                                                                         Best Wishes,     Vicki
