I have been penpaling for quite a few years now and I can say with certainty that I always enjoy getting to know people from all walks of life, sharing thoughts, dreams and fears, experiences, debating and exchanging ideas about life and the world. In this sense, I will happily receive responses from all kinds of people interested in discussions of all sorts. I tend to prefer deep and intellectualy stimulating conversations, but I really don't want to set any conversational boundaries. I am interested in how people live on the other side of the globe, always eager to hear about different cultures, traditions and customs.
A little bit about myself: My hobbies include literature (I have a weakness for Greek, German and Russian authors, but I also read academic writings), music (pretty obscure and diverse taste that includes lots of different genres), travelling and a little bit of video games.
I consider myself a curious and studious individual who enjoys learning new things whether it is about history, philosophy, sociology or any other scientific field. That means I may occasionally share new findings with you if you are interested in learning new things, since I tend to get excited when something I read or watch blows my mind (memes included if you are into them).
Anyway, I think this is enough to give you a general idea of who I am. Besides English I also speak German and Greek, so replies in these languages are always welcome. Really looking forward to hearing from you.
PS: I will not reply to anyone who isn't willing to introduce themselves properly. Also, I am not here to chat, so please don't send me one line messages.
Hobbies:Cinema, music, Tv shows, cooking-baking, traveling, handcrafting Penpal message / wishes: Hello! I'm Efi from Athens, Greece and I am looking for (female) snail mail penpals who are interested in a long-lasting friendship and really like exchanging letters ( I love it!). I have been snail mailing since I was a teenager and I find it fascinating! I would prefer native speakers of English as penpals, as I really want to practice my English as well.
I love listening to music ( indie, rock, pop/rock and jazz are my favourite genres). I also have a passion for cinema, especially European and Latin American and I have been involved a few times in co-directing short films (nothing special though haha). I also love cooking and baking especially working with sugar paste.
My dream is to travel all across the US, especially do a road trip there. I would also die to visit Patagonia and Antarctica.
I consider myself an introvert but I love meeting new people. I also enjoy building steady and strong relationships and have meaningful conversations. Small talk is also cool though :) I also find humour to be one of the most important traits :)
Open-mindedness ( in every possible sense) is one of the best qualities in people. I hate conservatism, so if you are conservative (homophobic, racist or whatever) do not contact me :) My dream as a penpal is to find someone with whom I could share my (even secret) thoughts, worries and have a very close connection, like two childhood friends. Someone I would really care about :). I would prefer to communicate with gay people, as I would feel more connected to them, I suppose. Lots of married straight people have already contacted me, but I feel that we are worlds apart. Perhaps I am wrong though.
I hope to meet a lot of interesting people here around my age (23-30). Cannot wait to hear from you!
P.S. I AM NOT interested in flirting/romance.I have been together with my soul mate three years now and I am not looking for romance, just pure friendship. Cheers!
Penpal message / wishes: Hi, my name is Mark, I'm 27 years old and I'm looking for natives English speakers, in order to improve my English skills and making some new friends as well. So, feel free to email me :)
