After constant writing to pen pals for 5 years straight, I had to take a break from writing for about 4 and a half months due to some difficult things happening and then loosing a little motivation to pick it back up because I thought everyone would have just forgotten about me. If we were pen pals before, I am writing to the letters I have, but PLEASE contact me! I would love to get back in touch. Also I am looking for some new pen pals!

I don't have many friends as most of my high school friends moved or I lost touch with, and I haven't met many people in college other than the 'in classroom friends to chat with'. So I do think of my pen pals as pretty good friends. I love reading about Greek Mythology and the paranormal. I have three cats and I love them to death. I absolutely love spring and autumn, and I basically live in a bubble baths.

Movies: 90% of what I go to see in the theater are horror movies. I love them! Original Friday the 13th, Halloween, and Nightmare on Elm Street series, Black Christmas (1974), Saw, House on Haunted Hill, Case 39, Silent Hill, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Shutter, Insidious, Sleepy Hallow, and terrible made for SyFy channel movies.

I also really love cryptozoology shows like Finding Bigfoot or Monster Quest.

Pen pal Info:
Do you want email pals? No, I don't check my email enough to be a decent email pal.
Do you want snail mail pals? Yes!
How long are your mails? Depends on how much I have to say/respond to, but sometimes I can get a little chatty.
Reply time? A couple days to about a week, depending on how busy I am. I normally write back on the weekends.
Would you like your penpal to be male or female? Doesn't matter.
Where would you like them to be from? I would prefer the US because it is cheaper, but if we have a ton in common, I honestly don't care! Can't put a price on friendship
Age preference? 21-28
What are you looking for in a pen pal? Someone that wont flake out after the first letter. Someone that will stick around for a long time, and become really good friends with. Someone that will be able to give advice, and know I would love to give some back, if wanted. Someone I can rant a little bit too, and someone who knows they are welcome to do the same. I do love to send out little packages every once in a while as well and swapping movies/books!

Looking for new pen pals :)

Jun. 4th, 2013 | 08:51 pm
posted by: weirdnessdk in pretty_letters

It seems I've lost about a third of my pen pals during this past year or so and because of that I am looking for a few new pen pals.

-Name: Lene
-Age: 28 (but I'll turn 29 this month. *yay*)
-Location: Odense, Denmark
-Occupation: Student at the university of Southern Denmark. Religion (religion history) is my major and history is my minor. I am currently working on my M. A. thesis which is a mix between folklore, religion, history and social science, i guess.

-Main interests: penpalling, gardening, living a low-impact life (though i don't want to go extreme with this), learning (about) languages, history, religion, reading books, crafting (knitting, crocheting, polymer clay, collages, decorating notebooks/boxes/other items.... etc), stamp collecting and a lot of other things... :)

-What genres of music are you into? My fav genres are black metal, death metal, folk/viking metal but my fav bands are the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Deep Purple... I also listen to some punk, pop, electronic music and rock.

-Favorite books: I love all i've ever read from the Danish author Kenneth Bøgh Andersen (he writes fantasy and horror stories), but I also really like the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (some day after i've graduated from the uni, i will finally find the time to read the complete series!) and the Spook's Books by Joseph Delaney. Besides fantasy i prefer to read
non-fiction books. I am currently reading a book about fossil finds in Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire but have also just recently read books about mindfullness, living green, slavery, horror comedy movies and... i guess this indicates that when it comes to non-fiction I am open to almost all themes. LOL.
I am currently really really interested in pre-Christian Scandinavia, Scandinavian folklore and green living

-Favorite movies: The two all-time fav movies are "Nosferatu" and "Freaks". I do like b/w movies a lot (especially the horror-ones) but i like a lot of genres. I like horror movies a lot (though I've had this accidental ability to avoid some of the VERY famous ones like "nightmare on elm street" and "friday the 13th"), i also love a good (well... bad. LOL) action movie, comedies (in the "genre" where "Ace Ventura" and "Kung Pow" belong), some fantasy movies, lots of thrillers and... recently i've found a liking of old war-movies.

-Describe your ideal penpal: My ideal penpal should be willing to write long letters (i personally write letters that usually are 10-25 pages long), he/she must write handwritten letters (i always write by hand), he/she must be ok with the fact that i sometimes am a bit late (though never more than about 4 months) with my letters as sometimes other things in my life are more important than writing letters (this of course also means that i am perfectly fine with my pals being a little late with letters from time to time, too), we must share at least some interests ( i find it really hard to write with people i have nothing in common with) and he/she must be ok with the fact that i can sometimes be very direct and honest in my letters (i've had some bad experinces with this before so i need to make this clear. I never ask about something or make a comment just to hurt my pal.... i do it because i am interested in the answer and i am interested in getting to know my pal better). Oh, and I need my new pen pal to be ok with the fact that i rarely write questions in my letters, so just comment on whatever you want to in my letters :D
I think this is the main things in an ideal pen pal for me. This also hopefully give my new pen pals an idea about what "kind" of pen pal I am. :)

-What age do you want them to be? I'd prefer them to be about 27-32. If you're older/younger than this and think that we could really get a good friendship still, please convince me to be your new pen pal ;)
-What sex do you want them to be? Either
-What country do you want them to be from? Anywhere, really. :)
