Find A Penpal to Share Your Life With

Why email penpals? Life is all the more exciting and interesting if you can share your experiences with others — and you can share theirs. Penpals are ideal in this respect, they are remote friends who you can feel comfortable talking to by email. And who knows, there is always the possibility that a penpal may eventually develop into a much closer friend! If you want a pen friend to write to
then check out the penpals and pen friends to be found at Pen Pals Planet. And you can see who is available to become your penpal right away, by checking out the panel to the right of this article.

Find a Penpal and Share Your Life
By Jason Montag

Life is full of experiences and we all strive to gain all that we can. The thing is, what is an experience, if it cannot be shared. Share it with a penpal.

Penpals have been around as long as we can remember. Soldiers off to war were able to correspond with people back at home and learn about and enjoy life in the free world. [See Army Penpals - Ed.] The fact that the majority of these men and women did not know their penpals prior to leaving for the war did not matter. We all seek friendship and common ground with those we are close to and that same thing can be gained through the written word.

If you have never written to a penpal it is an experience that you will never forget. It is just like meeting a new friend at the gym or the grocery store. You will be able to communicate an share your life with someone that you would never meet in you everyday circles. That is pretty exciting isn’t it?

I have had a few of the same penpals for years and have never met them in person, however that does not take away from the times and experiences that we have shared. I came across my first penpal through a service that just matches people from across the world by interest. Do not get me wrong this is not a dating strategy; it is only a way to meet new and interesting people.

Thanks to my penpals I was able to learn the inside thoughts of people living in Germany, Italy and even England. I would not trade them for the world. Joanne and Terry have been a huge part of my life. You know when you have an idea or question you ask the people you see everyday and that are exposed to the same things you are. I have the chance to ask people from completely different walks of life and that is wonderful.

If you have never had a penpal I highly recommend it.

Military Penpals Sites online – Military Pen Pals and Military Dating Sites
At, the Dating Penpals site

I’ve just been reading a very good page about Military penpals over at Military Pen Pals and I’d like to go over some of the points made there by the author, Vince Appleby.

First, and as an aside, let me point out that it would not be very effective to search for military penpals — ‘military pen pals’, if you prefer it with the space in the term ‘pen pals’ — by using the search panel on the right of this article, here at, whether it is military dating or just penfriends you are seeking. This is because the search panel is directed towards, which contains all kinds of penpals and dating. If it is specifically military penpals you are looking for then InternationalPenPal recommend Military Pen Pal .net as their preferred site to search for a military pen pal and as their best military dating site.

Getting back to the points raised at Military Pen Pals then Vince Appleby makes the important point that military penpals, whether they be army penpals, navy penpals, airforce penpals or any other kind of forces penpals, deserve our gratitude and respect because of the important job they are doing keeping us safe here at home.

Appleby goes on to explain that military pen pals may place greater emphasis on their role as pen pals than other people might who were not doing such a job — because of the need to get news from home, as well as to relieve the occasional periods of boredom and homesickness no doubt experienced when serving overseas. So bear in mind that if you become a forces penfriend, whether for dating or friendship, part of your role is inevitably going to be providing news and views from home.

Appleby also discusses the fact that military penpals may one day become military dating partners, or spouses, and that this is sometimes the way in which such relationships develop. The latter points are taken up at in other military pen pal pages, such as at Army Pen Pals which takes a look at some specific aspects of being an army pen pal and what you need to be aware of if you are going to email army pen pals as your chosen group within the wider context of military pen pals.

So, you have to go in with your eyes open if you are looking at military dating sites — under the name of penfriends or not — as you may end up in a new relationship which draws you in and leaves you no time to think about whether the military lifestyle is for you or not. Once a relationship begins you may not want to end it, even if military dating has its drawbacks for you.

What kinds of drawbacks? There is the moving around and living in other countries, for example. For some this will be a great adventure, for others a lack of putting down roots — it depends upon the kind of person you are. There’s also the worry about the safety of your loved one. I can easily picture “army wives” at home worrying about their military men pen pals (aka husbands) who are in war zones. Counter to this is the strong sense of community military families experience.

Returning to Appleby’s article — which has inspired this piece — there are other pages at his site too about military penpals, such as Military Pen Pals Lists, dealing with accessing lists of military pen pals; as well as US Military Pen Pals, presumably for those looking for military penpals and military dating sites from the US as opposed to other countries such as the UK, where military pen pals are also sought after.

My point is that there’s lots more information available at the links mentioned above, so it’s better to be informed up front rather than get into something you have doubts about later, if you are the kind of person who would not be suited to military dating, though many are.

So there you have it, the pages described above are good places to find and email military penpals online. Don’t forget also, that if you want to access forces penpals outside the recommendations above, there is no point in going to PenPalsPlanet but you will have to go directly to Military Pen Pal .net pen pals for Free Military Pen Pals.
