Love Pen Pals

I love getting "real" mail. I have had pen pals off & on since I was in the 4th grade..or somewhere around there. I have had a lot at one time, then at other times, only a few. I have made some great friends this way. You can really get to know someone by what they write. I had an intense love/hate relationship with a guy that started out as a pen pal when I was 16 & he was 19. I lived in Colorado & he lived in California. He was black & I'm white. I didn't meet him in person until I was around 20 or so. Like I said..it was a love/hate thing. Loved his family though & miss his mom dearly. Wasn't able to see her before she passed away a few years ago.:( Anyway...I have also had inmate pen pals..they are more likely to write more often..since they don't have a lot of contact with the outside world. I have made a few good friends this way..but you have to be careful...some only want money or whatever they can get out of you. I still write to a couple of them, but I have been pretty bad about writing anyone real mail these days.:(
