Hobbies:Reading, computers, Home Improvement Penpal message / wishes: Hello to everybody in the Penpals Now world! I am a retired, early 60s married white guy, who is looking for an easy going, mainly online friendship with a nice woman, sharing whatever we both find interesting
I am fairly good at detecting scammers and the like, so if your intent is to squeeze some money from a lonely old guy on the internet, don't waste your time. I will figure your game out sooner than later.
I am from western Canada and am in a long term marriage that has progressed into more of a distant friendship, so I am looking to connect with a fun, flirty easy going woman to get to know as an email friend and see where it goes from there.. Being from a small town, I know the chances of finding the type of friend I seek nearby are remote, so I am tossing this out to the internet in the hope there are women interested in what I offer - a friendly, no pressure connection with an easy going, open minded guy who is a good listener and I have a good sense of humor. This is for mainly online sharing and not a new "in person" relationship
I am looking for someone, who like me, is perhaps feeling a bit lonely, bored or ignored in their current life and looking for someone to brighten up the days.. Perhaps a "secret Friend" to confide in once you get to trust me. I am not looking to change my life or yours in a big way, just seeking to ad some extra smiles in our days through a bit of online sport. Your age or marital status is not an issue as long as you accept that you are talking to an early 60s married guy. I must also ad that while I will be a loyal friend, life does happen, so if you require extremely frequent email exchanges or fly into a rage or panic if I don't answer for a day or so, then I am not likely for you.
I will treat my new friend with care and respect and given my situation, discretion of course. I don't have a set agenda or wild expectations about what this can lead to - I am just hoping to find a fun, compatible friend. We can let things develop based on what happens as we get to know each other.
if anybody is still reading this, and you looking for a similar type connection and feel there may be a possibility of a friendship, send me a note and lets see where we can go.
Hobbies:Hoping for an ongoing conversation... Penpal message / wishes: To save you married guys out there a lot of time - single looking for single.
I recently discovered some replies were going to my spam folder - whoops! Apologies if I did not reply!
So here’s the thing : I’ve posted ads on here before, met some nice people, got burned (badly) once, but now I’m back again. I keep coming back because I’m either too lazy or too unmotivated to try another method, or my deeply buried optimistic side is trying, once again, to emerge. Maybe a bit of both, who knows!
This time around I’m going to try and be as specific as possible about what I want and why.
I’m 57, still working full time. Also, I’m a card-carrying introvert. By the time I get home at night all I want to do is stay home. Recently my two closest friends have moved away, leaving a substantial void in my life. I miss just talking! If my ad is clicking with you so far, you know what I’m getting at - just day-to-day nattering back and forth, whether it’s in person, texting, email, whatever - it’s having a connection out there with someone who wants to hear your news, or rants or anything else that’s on your mind. I used to love getting texts at work from my friends - sharing a bit of their day with me. It’s hard to say the L word, there’s such a taboo against admitting it, but I’m going to say it all the same - I get lonely at times, and even though right now, I’m too tired at night to go out and socialize, and yes, often too damn shy, I still want to connect!
My life is pretty simple, mundane even. But I read a lot, I’m curious about pretty much everything, and I have a sometimes sarcastic, dry sense of humour. I may not have a towering intellect, but I can carry on a conversation :)
I’m going to be pretty blunt about what I’m looking for, as I discovered last time being not absolutely crystal clear about what I want and what I will and won’t bring to an online friendship can be a pain in the butt for all parties concerned.
So here we go - I work with a bunch of women, my friends were women, so I’d like to talk to men for a change! (older men that is - 40 plus) I’m not married, and have no kids. I’ve seen a lot of ads from married men in unhappy marriages looking for some kind of connection, for any number of reasons, Guys, I feel for you, but honestly, talking with someone who’s attached makes me uncomfortable.
This next part may sound odd, but what the hey, I’m trying to be honest here. I’m looking to establish an initial connection via email, yes. I know we all have to do the getting to know one another dance, which involves long emails. I used to love writing those long, once a week emails to a previous penpal, but now, for some unknown reason, the idea of it doesn’t grab me at all. Firing off five short emails in a day appeals to me. Perhaps it’s a getting older thing, perhaps I’m reflecting our sound bite society, but that’s what I’m looking for. A conversation. A day to day conversation. Nattering. Bantering. Arguing (politely) :) One that could travel it’s way from emails to texting, who knows? And so, penpals from North America would be preferred, although if you’re from “across the pond” and are a diehard night owl, perhaps it could work :) :) Where there’s a will, there’s a way, yes? :)
No snail mail please :)
This last bit needs to be stated - I’d put it in all caps if it would help get the point across :
If you’re looking for a soulmate, partner, love of your life, I truly hope you find them. But it ain’t me. I’m single for a reason - mainly because I like it and it suits me, and at this stage in my life I think I’d probably be a crappy partner! Friend, yes. Partner? Nooo. Will that change? What’s the saying? Miracles can happen?
You want to talk about art, architecture, the environment, social media, books, flora, fauna, movies, drivers who make you cuss a blue streak, food, family, history, astronomy, astrology (lol)? An endless list...it changes and evolves from day to day.
So there you go. That’s me. This is what I want. I hope you’re out there. I’m thinking it’s ok to say you’re lonely and it’s ok to try and reach out. Let’s talk!
Hobbies:, hunting, fishing, camping Penpal message / wishes: Hi. Im looking for a mature woman who would like to talk about almost anything. But who would like to share fantasies, and stories as well.Married is good too. Age is not all that important, but prefer a woman with some life experience. Im not looking to change anyone's life.Also not looking for love. And i am definitely not sending out money. Any requests from Africa will be blocked!! Thanks!!
Hobbies:home improvement, reading, computers Penpal message / wishes: Thank you for taking the time to read my ad. I know I am not what many are looking for, but I hope this may catch the interest of the right woman. I am an early 60s married guy from western Canada who is here looking an online friendship based on fun and interesting sharing through email - talking about whatever we find interesting, from sharing those thoughts, ideas and feelings we have floating around in our heads but may not feel comfortable sharing with those around us, to our brilliant, but not so practical solutions to the problems of the world today. I am easy going and have a good if somewhat off the wall sense of humor. I don't have a set agenda as to h ow this would play out. Just looking for a woman of any race or age who is up for a casual online connection.
Perhaps you are like me, just feeling a bit lonely, bored and ignored in your current situation and looking for a supportive, listening outlet for the things you have on your mind.
I am not looking for anything beyond an email friendship and have no extra money to offer the scammers of the world. If you have several million dollars hidden away in a war zone or in an unclaimed estate, I will happily connect you with one of the many "bank officials" who write me with similar offers on a regular basis - I am sure they would be much more capable of handling the complex type of transactions you propose.
I am open to hearing from any women, regardless of your age, racial background, location, or relationship status, as long as you can communicate in English and are interested in talking to someone like me.
I realize this posting will probably attract very few responses, but even one from the right person will make it well worth posting.
