Did You Ever Have A Penpal?

When I was a teenager, I found myself quite lonely at times. Of course, there was no internet back then, but there were places where you could find penpals from other countries. I wrote to two such services and developed relationships with several penpals from other countries. I even kept up one friendship with a girl from England well into our twenties. I found this to be one of the most rewarding experiences. I was able to meet people from other countries through their letters and I made some friends that way. Have you ever had a penpal and do you think this is still valid since the beginning of the internet. Do you think it could be safe in this day and age?

No. I'm not interested in them and I don't have enough time for them.
