Hi all

I’m looking for some penpals for my partner, snail and / or email.
We are fairly introvert but social so don’t have many other friends and most the friends we have are straight.
We are a married female couple.
The reason I’m looking for pen-pals
Because my partner has been through many struggles in life, and I feel they’d benefit from someone that doesn’t know us personally in which she can confide and ask for advice and hopefully make some new friends along the way.

A bit about her:
She is an Asian lady (Indian) and struggles with the fact her family, friends and community has turned their back to her sexuality, this is a very heart-breaking situation for her that she bottles up.
She is in her late 30s and a survivor, having faced problem after problem in her life.

We own pets and like animals a lot, though she didn’t really have pets growing up but now owns them with me.

Preferred pen-pal
Preferably females of the LGBT community, possibly gay men.
Any ages but over 25s preferred.
Anywhere around the world.
If you are also Indian it’s a plus due to the things you can relate to, I’m non Asian and sometimes it’s a barrier in certain areas, but really any ethnicity.

I hope to hear from someone, somewhere.

Thanks for your time

They say the 3rd times the charm. I have had penpals twice before; but one abandoned LJ and the other has been super busy, so…here we go

Name: Machelle

Age: 27 - it was a painful reality check to realize after this year I would be closer to 30 than 20…sigh…wrinkles are eminent…

Location: Oklahoma

How do you identify? (sexuality/gender) I don't see the point in labels, but if I did it would be bisexual

Interests/hobbies: I love to read, write, doodle, watch my favorite old TV shows on dvd *cough*Golden Girls*cough*, and listen to music. I also go through crafty phases every now and then; I can crochet, knit, sew, and make bead jewelry. I love taking pictures and scrapbooking. Oh! and movie quotes, my love for movie quotes should probably have its own bullet point.

Favorite books: Quite a few classics, but most are from Medieval to Renaissance literature. I love to read and the listing is crazy long, so here are a few that are in my “To Read” or “Reread” pile: Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks; Perks of Being a Wallflower; Pride & Prejudice; Lover At Last; Prince of Thorns; Game of Thrones; Born in Fire; House of Leaves; City of Bones; Cinder; the Replacements; Are You There Vodka, It's Me Chelsea; I, Robot; Odd Brother; Girl With the Dragon Tattoo; Wicked; White Queen. You can imagine my bedside table…lol. I read just about everything; and the invention of smart phones and tablets have saved me considerable money in chiropractor bills…lol.

Favorite films: Well, to start out, I collect lots of Disney or animated movies from when I was younger. My favorite is Beauty & the Beast; and then the list goes to Little Mermaid, Tarzan, Emperor's New Groove, the Aladdin trilogy, Aristocats, and Anastasia, so on and so forth…

My non animated movies favorites include: Noises OFF! <--best movie ever... Avengers; Skyfall; Iron Man 3; the Fast & Furious series; Last Holiday; Red Eye; Batman trilogy; LOTRs; Matrix movies; the Rush Hours; Sister Act; all Star Trek movies, old and new; Two Weeks Notice; The Holiday; Secret Garden; Little Princess; Murder by Death; Clue; Ten Inch Hero; Ocean's 11…the list continues

I love old school movies: Gidget; any Doris Day movie; Yours Mine and Ours, the one with Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda; White Christmas; Movies with Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Cary Grant, or Rock Hudson; All of the Three Stooges episodes

I will quickly say that Sherlock and Golden Girls are my two favorite shows; and I also believe Joss Whedon to be a god among men. So other TV shows I like: Charmed; Buffy; Angel; Fraiser; House; Law & Order, all variations; the Good Wife; Lost Girl (omg!); Glee; Chicago Fire; Switched at Birth; NCIS; Supernatural; Smallville; Xena; Hercules; Will & Grace; Reba; Sons of Anarchy; White Collar; Bones, Dick Van Dyke show, I Love Lucy, the Monkeys, Bewitched…la la la

Favorite music: Who can pick? I listen to just about everything, no really…Country. Pop. Hip Hop. Rap. Trance. Classical. some Techno. Lots of Gregorian Chant. Musicals. Soundtracks. Also note that I need new music from the following: Florence & the Machine, Drake, Adele, Bullet for my Valentine, and the last one escapes me…but if you are in touch with any of these people, or their agents, please let them know of my need for new CDs ASAP. I would greatly appreciate it, thanks.

What would you like to send/receive? Emails. Letters. Postcards. Pictures. fun stuff.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from? Pretty much anyone 18+

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to? Oh anywhere would be exciting as long as you speak English; unless you also speak French because I'm trying to learn...lol.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive? (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I am opposed to pretty much any food stuff.

What would be in your dream letter or package? The getting of a letter or email just makes me smile; so consistent responses would be awesome. I’m not talking about every day, though we can do that if we go the digital route; but I would like to keep this going for a while. I miss the daily, weekly, or monthly doses of happiness I get just from knowing someone took the time to reach out to me.

Anything else you'd like to add?: On my last post I had a random rant here about Youtube not having a repeat button; but that has since been fixed by someone who is unknown to me, but to whom I am forever indebted. If you type the word repeat inside the URL like this --> www."repeat"youtube.com/url without the " " it should repeat the video for you! Genius, huh?

Also, I'm a ginger. I thought I would give you fair warning in case you were worried about your soul.

Name: Rachel

Age: 21 (22 next month!)

Location: Salem, Oregon, USA

How do you identify?: I've been known to identify as a lesbian and as bisexual over the years but have recently concluded that I am, in fact, a bi-romantic asexual.

Interests/hobbies: Writing, photography, Minecraft, watching shows and documentaries on Netflix, anthropology, history (particularly WWII), and cooking.

Favourite books: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, Night by Elie Wiesel, Back Roads by Tawni O'Dell, Lamb by Christopher Moore, American Gods by Niel Gaiman, and The Hunger Games. I'm not a huge reader so discussions here might fall short.

Favourite films/shows: Pirates of the Caribbean, The Bourne Trilogy, The Chronicles of Narnia series.. I'm honestly not much for films. I mean, I'll watch them, but I don't go nuts over them or anything. TV shows on the other hand?

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, pictures, creative writing, journal entries, music/movie/show recs, music mixes, recipe exchanges, etc... I would prefer this would all be done via email for convenience and writing by hand kills my carpal tunnel.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: I'm open to anyone, but I would especially appreciate asexuals and anyone within the 19 - 25 age range. All I ask is that they are consistent, open-minded, and that we have at least two things in common (always need a backup!)

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere is fine by me so long as their English is understandable. I'd especially enjoy a German or Scot. 

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Preferably nothing via snail mail.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Random discussions about anything and everything, recipe exchanges, creative writing or journal entries, music mixes, movie/show/music recommendations, rants, reviews, pretty much anything!

Anything else you'd like to add?: I do suffer from ADHD, depression, and anxiety and I am in therapy so I might talk about these things on occasion. If this makes you uncomfortable than please let me know beforehand. I don't want to be a downer for anybody!

 Name: Jazzi

Age: 19 and 1/2

Location: Indiana

How do you identify?: I haven't quite figured this out yet.  I am female and closer to femme than to butch.  I am attracted to people who are intelligent, kind, and share my social and political values with little regard to outward appearance.

Interests/hobbies:  I like to knit, write, read (obviously), send obnoxiously full envelopes, record myself reading poems and poetry onto cassette tapes, draw badly, stare at the cute girl in my feminism class, and cuddle with people who are having a bad day.

Favourite books:  Wicked, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, and Mirror, Mirror by Gregory Maguire; A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray; Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce; Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling; The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood; Possession by A. S. Bayatt; The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova; Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; Full-Frontal Feminism by Jessica Valenti; Yes Means Yes by Jaclyn Friedman and Jessica Valenti; The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir; ... A lot of other things ...

Favourite films:  I haven't seen as many movies as I wish I had.  I love children's movies because I believe that the relationships are so much more believable, the humor is more light-hearted, and because I very rarely leave feeling badly about myself.

Favourite music:  I like music that is light-hearted and upbeat, generally speaking, especially folk.  Again, I am not as well-versed in music as I would like to be.  Some of the bands I listen to frequently include Mumford and Sons, Sunset Rubdown, Iron & Wine, Josh Ritter, Kimya Dawson, The Bird and the Bee, and Andrea Gibson.  (Does spoken word poetry count?  It has lyrics ...)

What would you like to send/receive?: I can knit hats and scarves, I write stories and poems for people, I make awful paintings, I tear things out of magazines, and I can record myself reading stories for you.  I'd like to send tangible letters and gifts, but I would also be okay with e-mail, since it's faster and more convenient for some people.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone who is kind, has an interest in arts and/or politics, and wants to send and receive mail from me, naturally.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:  Any at all

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything with animal products:  I'm vegan

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Tea bags, lovely stories about someone's life, colorful photographs or paintings, small perfume samples, and genuine affection

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm very shy at first.  Please don't let that scare you off.

Picture: Yay, belly dancing!

hello :)

Name: kelsey

Age: 19

Location: midwest booo.

How do you identify?: a very confused female :D

Interests/hobbies: oh boy so many interests and hobbies. WELL. I'm a huge history nerd so I geek out by watching a ton of the history channel and i'm proud to say over 90% of my books are historical/political in nature if not social science in general. I also love fashion, art (i'm a studio art minor, I adore painting and photography), traveling & trying new foods, rock n roll, vintage photos, reading, playing video games to an extent: I like call of duty, ace attorney, pokemon, and the sims but I don't get sucked into them. I like walking around cities, hanging out, having fun convos, and lots of other things.

Favourite books:
i'll try not to make this long since I love reading. walk this way: the autobiography of aersomith, the dirt: motley crue, slash, a thousand splendid suns, memoirs of a geisha, the commitment, the kid, east of eden, jane eyre, presidential confidential, hamlet, great expectations, the joy luck club, freakonomics, a team of rivals, sherlock holmes, the client, etc etc etc geez I read too much.

Favourite films: : I'm honestly not too keen on movies, which I find odd since I love television shows. but my favorites are inglorious basterds, the breakfast club, and a-team. my tv shows: the league, it's always sunny, archer, community, modern family, friends, keeping up with the kardashians, gossip girl, and misfits.

Favourite music: I can legit listen to anything. but I do looove aerosmith, guns n roses, motley crue, red hot chili peppers, fleetwood mac, m.i.a, led zeppelin, the beatles, the rolling stones, and pink. but really, anything.

What would you like to send/receive?: emails! I'm a fan of those, or if you're active on here we can always be lj buds.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: people who know english since sadly I don't know enough of another language to hold a conversation. ;(

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: any is fine since it would just be email.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'd prefer to talk with people around my age since I can probably relate to them more.

I'm kinda bored, so I figured I'd run through this again :D I'm really not big on letter-writing, since I'm kind of swamped with schoolwork and I'm really bad about sending things out in a timely manner (seriously, the only way we get rent in on time is because we send it in online XD), so I'm mainly just looking for email buddies and/or LJ friends :)

Name: Cyrus (I go by Cy)

Age: 22

Location: Newmarket, NH

How do you identify?: Panromantic demisexual with an aesthetic preference for the male body. Also, pre-transitioned trans dude. I call myself a gay man for the simplicity. Also taken.

Name: (legal in one month's time) Katerick Alixan. But you can call me Alix

Age: 24

Location: Southern California

How do you identify?: basically? A gay man in a chick body. or, if you're into labels, genderqueer transmasculine pansexual, but that is just such a mouthful. and I'm taken :3

Interests/hobbies: Writing, Reading, torturing fictional characters... But anyway, I have a lot of interests, but I also don'tget to delve into some of them as often as I'd like. I am a TOTAL language geek, and I currently am almost trilingual (english, spanish, German), but I'd like to learn about 10 more, including Finnish and Lithuanian. Yeah. I know. I'm crazy. I also love psychology and poking around inside what makes the mind tick, because crazy characters make for interesting characters. I love music, both my parents are opera singers and my dad sings on movie soundtracks, so music is always an important thing. I like a lot of computer stuff and video games as well. Oh and Roleplaying. I roleplay online, via IM, in 1 on 1 situations, I'm also up for email RPing, and if you live near me, D&D is fine too :D

Favourite books: Oh dear jesus. where to begin. I love books that are strange. I confess that since becoming a full time student on the quarter system, I have had very little time to actually READ anything, and I'm in the middle of about six books. But I really like fantasy novels, like the Night Watch series by Sergei Lukyanenko, and I'm also a fan of Warren Ellis, James Patterson, Dean Koontz, etc. I know there's a scad of books that I NEED to read, such as anything by Gaiman and Pratchett, but I just haven't yet, please don't kill me lol.

Favourite films: My mom used to be a film studies teacher, so um. almost anything. Except for really stupid movies like Jackass or movies that look to be entirely about fart jokes. My favorite genres are fantasy, psychological thriller, drama, and action movies. I fucking love action movies, especially stupid ones that are just there for the sake of LET'S LOOK AT EXPLOSIONS.

Favourite music: I prefer foreign music to American music, and my favorite genres are rock, metal, industrial and "other" since I have some strange shit in my ipod. My favorite band is a German band called OOMPH! who are listed as Rammstein's inspirations. I also like VNV Nation, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Van Canto(a capella metal, how can you NOT like that), Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Icon of Coil, Letzte Instanz, Kaizer's Orchestra.... and of course I've got a soft spot for the stuff I listened to when I was growing up like Eve 6, Crazytown, *NSYNC, old No Doubt, etc. I also have a bit of guilty pleasures, like Banghra music, and Limp Bizkit, and old seventies German pop music, or those old dance hits from the 90s that were played around the 8th grade dance.

What would you like to send/receive?: Mostly emails or IMs, I have no time to write and will frequently forget that I have mail I need to send.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: pretty much anyone? I really like to talk to other people who are somewhere around the same area as me in the gender spectrum, just because I haven't found many people to talk to about it, but outside of that? just people who share my interests.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: anywhere. If it's somewhere that English isn't the main language, I'd like to learn others, but right now German would probably be the best foreign language to send me. Or Finnish if you can translate it in the email because damn y'all's language is hard xD

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: angryness, bad spam, trolling etc.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: I'd just like to make some new friends, if I can do that? I'd be happy.

Anything else you'd like to add?: mmm.... I won't be online that often, but I'll always try to respond within a day or two to your emails!

Hi again!

Here I am, reposting.  My old entry is here, if you're interested.

Name:
  Melanie

Age:  19

Location:  Missouri, United States

How do you identify?:  It's complicated.  We can discuss it later.  :P

Interests/hobbies:
  Music, video games (sometimes), art (more looking at it than creating it, these days), movies, writing, researching/looking at Wikipedia, reading (sometimes), people watching, vinyl (you know, records), typewriters, similar "old" things, yard sales (I'm a total old lady), defacing/destroying clothes, punk rock...  I spend most of my time just sitting around listening to music/on the internet/playing Sims 2.  It really is riveting.

Favourite books:  A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, American on Purpose by Craig Ferguson, Nineteen Eighty-Four  by George Orwell, Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs by John Lydon, Touching From a Distance by Deborah Curtis, Mysterious Skin by Scott Heim, On The Road by Jack Kerouac, anything by J.D. Salinger, anything by Charles Bukowski, anything by Chuck Palahniuk...  I've been getting into The Beat Generation, lately.  I like reading about people's life stories, too.  I'm not into young adult books at all, really (don't even get me started on Twilight).  My library's somewhat lacking (I do live in Missouri), so it's hard for me to find really great books, unless they're insanely cheap on Amazon, haha. 

Favourite films:  A Clockwork Orange, Control (2007 film), Mysterious Skin, 1984 (1984 film), Bad Education (La mala educación), Zerophilia, Fight Club, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Adventures of Sebastian Cole, Snatch, Lock, Stocks, and Two Smoking Barrels, etc, etc.  I watch a ton of movies, but it's been a while since I've seen something amazing.  I'd love to swap some suggestions, though.  :D

Favourite music:  My last.fm page.  But if you lack ambition, here's a summary:  Punk rock's my life (to put it simply), but I generally listen to stuff from the 70's and 80's.  I'm real into post-punk and glam rock and ska and electronica and stuff like that.  You probably really should click on that link.  Some bands I like, though:  Joy Division, David Bowie, The Clash, The Fall, Wire, Bauhaus, Public Image Ltd., The Cure, Richard Hell, Gang of Four, Televsion, Buzzcocks, Iggy Pop, The Vibrators, T. Rex, Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, Tricky, Tiga, Violent Femmes, Serge Gainsbourg, The Specials, Psychotica, Glampire, LCD Soundsystem, etc (not in that order).  If we have simliar taste in music, I do like to talk about it quite a bit.

What would you like to send/receive?:  Emails, IMs (I can be pretty slow to reply and boring, but if that's your thing...), mix CDs/mixtapes (when I get a good cassette player/boombox-type thing), snail mail... If you live outside of the US, though, I'm probably not sending you any packages.  I'm lazy/cheap.  And my handwriting's hard to read, so I prefer to type letters on one of my typewriters.  But really, that's subjective...

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:  Anyone who's willing to put in the effort.  :P

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:  Anywhere!  I'm really interested in Canada and the UK, so.... yeah.  But anywhere's great!  :D  (I only speak English, though.  My French is really too pitiful to carry on a conversation.)

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:  Uh... food.

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
  Art/writing.  You know, something created.  Handmade things and all that cal.  I get attached to weird little things like erasers and office supplies, too, so that could work.  XD

Anything else you'd like to add?:
  I'm pretty slow to reply sometimes.  Slow as in like, 10 days.  So, sometimes I might need a little nudge to get going.

Picture:
  All of my pictures suck/are a couple years old.  (But if you do a little cyberstalking, you're bound to come across some.)

Name: AJ

Age: 21, turning 22 in about a month

Location: Ohio, USA (home for the summer), Pennsylvania (school-moving back in mid-late August)

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) genderqueer/transmasculine/FTM-ish, almost entirely attracted to girls

Interests/hobbies: marching band, pep band, queer stuff including my university's GLBTxyz organization, linguistics, foreign languages, reading for enjoyment, being on the internet way too much, procrastinating

Favourite books: too many to list, but I especially like fiction-mysteries/detective fiction, young adult fiction/fantasy , novels with queer characters...I'm always open to suggestions/recommendations too

Favourite films: animated movies, comedy, pretty much anything not-scary, but there are a lot of things that end up in the 'scary' category

Favourite music: songs with foreign lyrics, mainly Arabic & French; Disney songs; musicals, particularly Rent & Wicked, among others; extremely random pop songs; instrumental stuff-film scores, sometimes a bit of classical, and I recently discovered a group called the Vitamin String Quartet which does string quartet covers of pop songs

What would you like to send/receive?: emails, IMs, maybe the occasional letter/mix cd/package

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: anybody, really, but I'm definitely interested in hearing from people who don't fit in the gender binary, or transguys. Preferably under 30.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: anything electronic-wherever, as long as it's in English, or somebody doesn't mind helping me practice my not-entirely-fluent languages (French-pretty good, Arabic-getting there, German's a little rusty); letters/packages-Sorry, but I can't really afford to mail things out of the country right now, so US-only

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") food (I love receiving candy, but I just added about 8 things to my list of allergies so that might not be a good idea), anything that can go bad, not too much "adult" stuff

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Stickers! I dunno, surprise me :)

Anything else you'd like to add?: I don't think so...

hey :)
