    pen pal service.

    hey.. im not sure if this is allowed or not in this forum but wtvr.. its 2 am.. so i might as wel try.. to tired to read through the novel of the license of agreement or wtvr..

    heres just what i was thinking.. um.. yeah.. as the topic implys... a pen pal kinda thing....like within this forum... we each have a pen pal for like a week or month or what not.. and see how it goes from there? i dont really know how to organize this or anything.. ijust thought the idea would be neat...

    like say.. its a group of 4 people... mr a, mr b, ms a, and ms b.
    mr a gets ms a for week 1
    mr b gets ms b for week 1
    then next week
    mr a gets ms b
    mr b gets ms a
    then next week
    mr a gets mr b
    ms a gets ms b


    actually.. forget that idea... haha i guess i dunno.. wtvr.
    i want a pen pal... a girl prefereably, cause yeah... not to hook up or anything, but just to talk... so...
    anyone interested?

    fyi. im not a stalker =/
    im not perverted (meaning i wont ask for you pix or wtvr)
    and wat not.. wtvr..

    i dunno whatlly happen to this post... be forgotten.. be ignored.. or be closed....
    but wtvr happens... yeah....
    it happens

    I don't think there are that many girls in the OTF to go around. Why does your penpal have to be female? Or are you just afraid that when a name is pulled out of the hat for your penpal, you get ... ANYEE [GASP]

    Why in God's name would I want to start writing snail-mail letters to people I already know from an Internet forum? It's like driving to the stables so you can ride your horse to work.

    hahahahaha

    i know this thread makes me sound like some jackass guy alone at home becoming fat and wasted...

    but the case is im a high school senior who kinda feels lost.. (lotta things happen lately) and i dunno... i jsut think itll be cool to have a pen pal who i can just talk to you know? talk about how my day went, and find out how theirs went.

    its different from regular friends...

    I don't think this would work beause I don't think most people would be willing to give their house address to complete strangers.

    ok super were talking and thats final

    Okay guys, here is what you do. Develop an individual personality. This requires posting on a regular basis so you become a familiar face. You will also need a cool avatar so people will recognize you. Figure out who responds best to your posts, and PM them your IM information. It's a whole lot less forced and arbitrary that way.

    Also, use the chatroom. #offtopic in irc.starchat.net or something like that. It's in BasTyra's sig.

    I suppose you could exchange over email or something instead of snail-mail. But Gus is pretty much right with this statement.

    the thing is.. i dont come here so often.. so its nice.. like seeing new threads and stuff, so i cant really post that often...

    and a pen pal isnt forced or anything.. its just.. reply whenever you want to... i dunno i had a pen pal from spain once.. was VERY cool.. so yeah... i just think.. a pen pal now would be cool too

    Not that kind of forced. I mean trying to develop/maintain interest in writing to someone who you don't know at all or anything about, is difficult to do. It's difficult to want to do. Which is why I say it's all very forced. Post online more and the rest will come naturally. If you can't be online very much then you are in a much better position to meet people in real life, but the key is to be an optimist.

    you don't need a cool avatar, and you don't need to post regularly

    I change my avatar constantly and I almost never post, but I'm still the coolest guy around

    Well, if want your pen pal to understand, I advise fixing some spelling and grammar.
