Moaning Moaning :)

My biggest pet peeve!!! I mostly hate the penpal collectors! Well hate is too strong a word, but for the lack of a better one I shall use it... After browsing databases and networks for penpals I think there's a lot of them! And the people who don't share anything... Makes me sad really...What I myself am looking for in penpals is friendship and with that comes sharing. I mean it's sort of a twoway street. Giving and receiving. It's a wonderful way to find people you can connect with, but there truly are just a few gems there :) They do stand out though from the others.I mean it's sort of a twoway street.

It's a wonderful way to find people you can connect with, but there truly are just a few gems there :) They do stand out though from the others.Since there's a lot of wackos in the world I get paranoid about sharing anything about myself if the other person doesn't either... And also the 'shopping list'-pals I wish that kind of people will find something more fulfilling in life (I'm not saying this in a bad way) so that they could actually say more! I try to do that myself, but I must admit that with some people you just don't know if you can ramble on and on about something you find meaningful yourself.

And I must warn the person I'm writing to next, that the letter might get a bit longer than usual, but I fell I must tell this one thing to someone who hasn't heard it yet and has a different perspective to the story since we've never met in person!

Oh well, I've rambled again. This probably doesn't make any sense either! I guess I got something of my chest :D

take care people!

I find it really hard to write to people who just write the basic stuff, not really sharing what's in them! I don't expect it to happen straight away, of course not, since your writing to a total stranger, but I do hope it will happen in the long run! At the moment I too have quite a few pals, but like you I expect that some of them will quit writing... But thankfully there's at least one person who i hope will stick around :) but hopefully a few more will too!

I totally agree! I miss the days when writing a real letter had meaning and was treasured! I still try to keep that alive with those I write to and swap decos with.

Sometimes it is very nice to have an unbiased opinion of someone who isn't tangled up in everything.
