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

Name: V
Age: 23
Location: Finland

Zodiac Sign:
Sun: Gemini
Rising: Cancer
Moon: Aquarius
Rabbit in Chinese astrology.

How do you identify?:
A gentleman. Androgyne, very much in to male aesthetics anyway. Born female but never really felt like one (on the other hand how should a female feel like, then? I don't know). Like to dress in old-fashioned men's clothing. I guess I'm something in between. I have reached the state of mind where I just feel like a unique entity without any labels whatsoever. Mostly drawn to men and manly/androgyne women, but I don't think genders matter that much - I love everyone beautiful and inspiring. I'm generally not very interested in sex.

Interests/hobbies:
Travelling, hiking, solitude, silence, steam engines, film cameras, classic cars, seaweed, mysticism, found objects, tea-drinking, random activism; Swimming in the lake, making firewood, learning new things, combing through fleamarkets and antique fairs; All sorts of things. I'm a bookbinder and an exceptionally lousy painter. I wish I had more energy to paint, I still have dozens of unfinished boards from 2007 or 2008. Sometimes I just can't get myself together. Drawing, painting, arts and crafts are all part of my everyday life. Things I really need to learn: Welding, woodworking, rare languages, how to use a chainsaw.

more, more )


Why not :D

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.

Females/genderqueers are more than welcome to message me too, however.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A hand-written letter, a drawing or painting etc, would make my day.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I apparently have Schizophrenic symptoms, but I'm too much of a wimp to see a doctor. Don't ask, its a long story. I'm also an opinionated sonofabitch and I rant daily, whether it be to the parasitic Incubus that lives in my brainpockets, the Plague Doctor or online, about nerd stuff to humanitarian stuff. Beware.

Name: Cy (short for Cyrus)

Age: 22

Location: New Hampshire

How do you identify?: Mostly queer, a lot of gay, and somewhere around demisexual. Also, trans dude.

Interests/hobbies: World of Warcraft, webcomics, LiveJournal, writing, reading, playing time-wasting games... I bounce around a lot of different things.
» Fandoms: D.Gray-man, Kingdom Hearts, Tales of the Abyss, Gankutsuou, DOGs, Glee... I also like a bunch of other things, but don't really follow them.

Favourite books: Lynn Flewelling's books, LotR series, Good Omens, Terry Pratchett's Discworld books... And some other random stuff.

Favourite films: Films are kinda come-and-go for me. I like the shiny ones with explosions or cool worlds or both. Most recently I've seen and enjoyed Avatar and How to Train Your Dragon. The only one that's stayed a favorite is The Princess Bride. Unless Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog also counts.

Favourite music: Uhmm... -shuffles through library- Lady Gaga, the Glee soundtrack, And Then There Were None, 30 Seconds to Mars, access, Bump of Chicken, Angels and Airwaves, Bloc Party, Stabilo, David Bowie, The Hush Sound, Jack's Mannequin, Less Than Jake, The Matches, Mindless Self Indulgence, Placebo, Queen, Rammstein, Trans-Siberian Orchestra... I listen to a lot of different things.

What would you like to send/receive?: I'm not picky about what I get. As far as giving goes, I like to babble on about stuff. I can draw when the mood strikes, but I'm more of a "silly doodle" kind of person, not a "work of art" one. I have a tendency to give advice - I like to try and help people when I can. At this point, I would prefer email, because my physical address is going to change soon, but I'm definitely open to snail-mail once that's settled.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Doesn't matter, really. Just looking for other people to correspond with for fun.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: I don't care with email, but seeing as I'm a poor college kid, I'd really like to be able to send snail mail with just one stamp (unless you're willing to pay for postage, at which point, I'll gladly send to anywhere!)

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything sexual. My boyfriend might have to be angry about that... Packages are cool as long as I'm warned beforehand.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: My teaching certification, a shiny new home, and a puppy. And enough money to set me well-off for life. Uhm, idk xD;; I like letters!

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm really just a dorky guy. I like talking and chatting with people. I can get a little weird and a little ranty (seriously, just look at my latest LJ entries - none of it's locked), but I really do love trying to help people out. If I can be the one guy you can unload on and get some understanding, that makes me happy.

Picture (optional): This one! And my boy. Also, my kitteh.
