Before the advent internet and the social media looking and having a pen pal and writing to your pen pal was once popular. I'm not sure if anyone is looking for a pen pal or if there is still some one writing to his or her pen pal nowadays? Picture credit: theodysseyonline.com

I had a penpal in the U.S. when I was about 11 or 12 years old, the name and address was given to me by my aunt.

I had a pen pal in England when I was 12 years old and we actually followed each others lives through the years. We were so similar, it was funny. Through the years we did similar things and as we got older, she got married, a few months later I got married. She had a daughter, then so did I a few months after. Then 3 years later we both had a son. I finally did get to meet her and her family when I was 21 and working on a cruise ship and one of our stops was London. She met me at the pier with her mom and her aunt. I spent the night at their house and they took me out that night and took me back to the ship the next day. Years later, we both had sons. When I was in my late 50's she came to the USA with her boyfriend and visited my husband and I and stayed over night. We still write and we are both 76 years old.

A lot of people had pen pals ten years ago. Now, with the popularity of the Internet and mobile phones, it is estimated that there are fewer and fewer.
