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: 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: Alyssa

Age: 21

Location: New Hampshire

How do you identify?: Female/Lesbian

Relationship: I’ve been in a relationship with my wonderful girlfriend for nearly three years now, so I should note that I am looking for good friends and great conversation – nothing romantic!!

Interests/hobbies: Writing poetry, photography, film, art, reading, sleeping, eating, musing, watching, listening, and anything that opens, confuses, fills or frightens my mind.

Favorite books: Though my heart lies with poetry, I do love Frankenstein, The Bell Jar, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, 1984, The Things They Carried, The God of Small Things, Mercury Under My Tongue, The Catcher in the Rye, and most everything by Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, Charles Bukowski, Jonathan Safran Foer, David Sedaris, Miranda July and more. Anything that makes me feel (again), really.

Favorite shows: I could waste the day away watching the Food Network, or any cooking show(s) in general. I can’t deny that I love dramas, such as Grey’s Anatomy, and I do love the following for multiple reasons: Work of Art, The Amazing Race, Face Off, Project Runway, So You Think You Can Dance, Modern Family, and old gems like The L Word (did it really have to leave)?

Favourite music: I go crazy for music, but tend to find myself rather conservative in what I like; I love singer/songwriters and indie/folk rock. A few of my favorites: Regina Spektor, Bon Iver, Imogen Heap, Sufjan Stevens, Beirut, Ingrid Michaelson, Eisley, Iron & Wine, City and Colour, Bright Eyes, Mumford and Sons, Florence and the Machine, Fionna Apple, Fionn Regan, Vampire Weekend, etc.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, pictures, creative writing, musings, music/movie/books/anything recommendations, mixes, recipes, secrets, etc... I would love snail mail, but e-mail, texts, messages or the like work just fine.


Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: I'm open to anyone, but would especially love others involved in the LGBTQ community, preferably not over 30, and if you are a female and lesbian, it’s certainly a plus, but absolutely not a deal breaker.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to: I only speak English, so primarily somewhere English speaking…mail rates are expensive, so within the USA would be great, but if you don’t mind connecting via email or other internet means, international is fine too!

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Anything and everything…dreams, hopes, secrets, happiness, sadness, pictures, artwork, poetry, music; a letter that acts as a window to your life.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I love. A lot. If you don’t really consider yourself someone who is hoping to establish a wonderful and loving connection, I may not be your girl!!

[identity profile] hahns-girl.livejournal.com

Name: Christy

Age: 21

Location: Scotland

How do you identify?: I’m not big on labels, but if I had to apply one I would probably consider myself a lesbian woman but I have had sexual contact with guys in the past.  Still, I am primarily attracted to other women.

About me: What to say?  I am currently enjoying the rather long summer between my third and fourth year of university.  I study law at Edinburgh, and have a bit of a love hate relationship, i.e. when it’s stuff I enjoy, I love it, when it comes to referencing essays, I hate it.  I’m generally a calm person and enjoy staying in just as much as I do going out.  I’ve never been the most confident person I know, but I do try not to be too shy.  I love animals, especially my cats, and I take waay too many pictures of them.  I enjoy going out for drinks or something to eat, especially since apart from baking cakes and making desserts, I suck in the kitchen.  I love the friends I have, but am always happy to have more.  My friends would probably describe me as a little mad, loyal and funny, which all things considered isn’t too bad! 

Interests/hobbies: Writing, reading, watching TV, going out for random excursions, going for drinks. 

Favorite books/authors: Dean Koontz, Philippa Gregory, Tess Gerritsen, Kathy Reichs, Oscar Wilde, Ian Rankin, Scott Lynch, many of the classics...I’ll pretty much read anything that takes my fancy

Favourite Music:  I’ll listen to almost anything, from rock to pop, country to classical.  I play violin so I guess I have a bit of a weak spot for a gorgeous string melody.

Favorite movies/TV shows: Doctor Who, Grey's Anatomy, Rizzoli and Isles, Law and Order SVU, The Good Wife, ER, Harry’s Law, Prime Suspect, Hot in Cleveland – pretty much any courtroom/cop/medical drama, but then I also love a good chick flick (as predictable as they can be) or a comedy.

What would you like to send/receive?: Anything really.  I do have to confess, I have a bit of a love for snail mail with nice stationary and stuff but I'm up for e-mail too and would love to send postcards occasionally or little trinkets, mixed cds, handmade stuff, doodles etc. 

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone, so long as they're open minded.  Someone who likes to chat about all the random little things that make them smile and the things that interest them.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere! But I should point out that I only speak English.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Not that I can think of – just nothing too weird, I suppose. 

What would be in your dream letter or package?:  Something to make me smile, whether that’s a long letter ranting about some random little thing that bugging you, telling about something you found that reminds you of old times, or just what was going through your head when you last walked through the park, or sat in a coffee shop because it was raining outside and watched the world go by.  Maybe a few pictures, some little doodles or a trinket of some sort?

Anything else you'd like to add?:  “No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself.” (Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own)

What would you like to send/receive?: nice, chatty SNAIL MAIL letters - no e-mail, IM, LJ, FB, etc. pals!

What would be in your dream letter or package?: well, other than a package full of money, since I collect them, shot glasses, but like I said, sending stuff is not what I'm after, it's the letters and the quality of the letters as I'm looking for friendships ONLY, not someone to give me stuff

Anything else you'd like to add?:
just looking for some great LGBTQ (especially lesbian) pen pals who like to write nice, long, chatty snail (postal) mail letters and are looking for long-term friendship ONLY! :-) Tell me about yourself (I won't reply otherwise) and we can exchange addresses

Someone like you :)

This is me :)

Howdy!

Name: Rainbows

Age: 15

Location: The good ole U.S.A. I live in Michigan lol

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) I'm a queer black chick. I'm attracted to anything as long as it's human.

Interests/hobbies: Surfing the internets, reading, talking about politics, debating

Favourite books: ANYTHING by Noam Chomsky. I don't really pay attention to titles but I don't read a lot of fiction. As for non fiction anything that pertains to sociology, society, activism and stuffs like that. If anybody can somehow hook me into fiction then go ahead! The only fiction I read or watch is historical fiction. But I like V for Vendetta and Watchmen

Favourite films: School Daze, When the Levees Broke, Malcolm X, Pootie Tang. I don't really have favorites, I watch A LOT of movies.

Favourite music: I don't really have favorite artists, I just listen to music. My music tastes range from pop to classical. I'm open to anything. Some of my fav genres are : Pop, Kpop, Rap/Hip Hop. I can give a few artists I like : Talib Kweli, Britney Spears, Radiohead, GD&TOP, Prince (huge fangirl fro Prince) and Gnarls Barkley

What would you like to send/receive?: I like to make mixtapes, zines, poems, and I can write in Chinese (just a beginner though lol). Also I can do the standard letter, sometimes a good letter can be JUST SUPER COOL. Or if you're good at any crafts then it would be cool to send me something like that.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Someone in the same age range from me 15-18. I want to be pen pals with someone who wants to keep a regular, fun and educative (does that even make sense lol) correspondence. I want someone who's political and passionate but a goofball at the same time. Also if you're good at arts and crafts that would be awesome toooo

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: I would like to stick in the U.S. for mail but anywhere is welcome for email.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") No food unless already discussed in correspondence. Use your common sense I guess. It really just depends on the situation *this was just a ramble*

What would be in your dream letter or package?: My dream package would be in some cute ass stationary like Hello Kitty and with a zine or mixtape. A letter with doodles or maybe a comic someone made would be awesome.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm agnostic but would love to hear from people into philosophy and theology. I've honestly been researching a lot about religions in India so I would love to discuss that. I'm EXTREMELY liberal. I'm a pro choice black feminist. I'm OBSESSED with Hello Kitty and fashion. I'm really sensitive and weird. I can crochet. I'm trying to learn the guitar but I'm lazy as hell. I'm also a vegetarian. I hope to meet some awesomesauce folk. Anybody who's into politics (Anarchism, Communism, Socialism things of that nature and societal stuff) should definitely come talk to me :D because I'm really into that stuff and would love to learn more. I'm also a very vulgar and TMI person lol. This post was really off, sowwy <3

 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!

I've done this once before and I have been talking to some great people ever since (Z <3). So, why not try it again and see who I come up with! :)

Name: Alexis

Age: 16

Location: Baltimore, MD

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) Pansexual Female.

Interests/hobbies: I love psychology and answering/asking questions. I'm a girly-girl, so I love dressing up, eyeshadow, mascara, make up of any kind. I love to bake cupcakes, paint, take pictures, play with hair, laugh, and sing. I won't lie to you, I'm not always nice - I insult people like it's going out of style - but who is always genuinely nice these days? I'm not afraid to tell you what I think, and I like to play the devil's advocate. I write because it's my passion and I strive to learn something new, everyday. Even though I have my mean tendencies, I like to think I have a big heart. There's so much I care about, I have so much love, and I'd like to share it with you.

Favourite books: Uglies, Pretties, Specials, and Extras by Scott Westerfeld. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. The Twilight Series (Yes, I am serious. I'm a hopeless romantic). I absolutely ADORE books, so I have tons of favorites that would take me too long to write. I'm always open to suggestions, however. :)

Favourite films: I love little kid movies. Alice In Wonderland (the original. Don't even get me started on the remake) is probably my absolute favorite movie. The Shining, Step Up 1-3, Final Destination 1-4, Save The Last Dance. I don't like: LOTR, Harry Potter, The Breakfast Club, The Goonies, or Forest Gump.

Favourite music: I love classical music (Tchaikovsky <3), The Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, The Temptations, Gym Class Heroes, Travie McCoy, you name it and I'll tell you if I like them.

What would you like to send/receive?: I'm big on letters and cards (birthday or holiday, or just random cards). But if letters are not your thing, I can do email, too. Pick your poison.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Well, I'm only 16, so keep that in mind. The highest I'd feel comfortable going is about 19.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anyone! International mail is surprisingly cheap (my letter to Italy only cost me 98 cents!) But, once again, if international mail isn't so cheap for you, I have an email address.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts"): I'm not big on food in the mail or things that will get me in trouble with the law. Remember, I'm only 16.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Letters, cards, pictures, cd's, dried flowers, drawings, stories, poems, something bright and colorful, anything you think will get me to know you better.

I'm looking for life long friends. If you have commitment issues, then I'm probably not the girl to talk to. And I am in school, so it might take me a day or two to send the letter back. But don't fear, I will always reply. I can write and read a bit of French (I'm a beginner), but I'd prefer English. Let me know if you're interested! :)

Pen Pals

Name: Elizabeth

> Age: 25

> Location: Milwaukee, WI, USA

> How do you identify?: Lesbian

> Interests/hobbies: Reading, writing poetry, listening to music and playing guitar, watching movies, letterboxing (like Geocaching but without the GPS), knitting/crocheting, traveling, studying literature, history, languages, and more.

> Favourite books: I have so many, but here are a few: "Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett, "Book of Hours" by Rilke, anything by Linda Pastan, the Stieg Larsson books, Geraldine Brooks' "People of the Book," "The Never-Ending Story," Radclyffe's medical dramas, and most recently, a lot of noir detective fiction.

> Favourite films: La Belle et la Bete, Star Wars, Devil Wears Prada (because I think Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway are both pretty attractive), Firefly series, Farscape series, + so many more.

> Favourite music: pretty much anything depending on what mood I'm in.  Lately I've been listening to a lot of classical music featuring cellos (a phase, I'm sure) but I've been mixing in some modern rock and alternative, folk-rock, moldy oldies, and some lite R&B/HipHop.  I'm pretty much all over the charts on this one.

> What would you like to send/receive?: snail mail's good. Mix cds are always fun. Pictures, bookswaps, these are all good.  Interesting articles.  Poems you like.  Funny ads you see in magazines.  Whatever.  :)

> Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: people I find interesting. Probably would prefer to stick to the queer female. 20-35, I'd think for starters.

> What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Any.  I've been studying Hebrew and Greek, so if anyone wants to practice their English with me and let me practice my Greek or Hebrew with them (and are very very brave, as I am not fluent), that'd be cool too.

> Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts"). Nothing illegal or sexual, please. 

> What would be in your dream letter or package?: I haven't thought about it that much, I guess. Thoughts, funny stories, just your basic "get to know you" kind of stuff.  Random bits of interesting things (I sometimes send photos I've taken or poems/articles I find interesting or funny).

> Anything else you'd like to add?: I don't think so. If you're interested, let me know.
