Who would have thought that old school pen-pal writing, exchanging letters every single day , brought us together?
Back in the day, Its been some time since i broke up with my ex; the professional tension we had together is far greater than i can ever imagine that our family started to deteriorate. Working together was a dream come true for some and not everyone would ever put a cosmetic touch on something that is no longer there. The pressure tendered so as the patience and the time with our two children, then i decided its all over.
Starting over again is a pace less anticipated because the future is bleak. Here i am again, repeating what my father and mother done in the past; the only remedy is to move on and make use of what's left in you: my dignity and my strong faith that things will work out for me and my two children. I worked as hard as i can and gradually i was on track again and seems Life's been peachy since. No expectations to fall in love, don't give any high hopes to date
Last February 2011,I came across a Pen Pal site. I was meaning to write someone and share some common interests, no intention of finding a soulmate. I put up my profile, requesting that i like friends and no people should ask charity from me. A week later, after having received messages from Algiers and other countries i don't know where it is. A 48 year old American wrote me a message :
Oh great, so how does one properly introduce themselves in writing to a
professional writer? Hmmm, probably a good start would be to ensure no spelling or grammatical errors. I think
I can do at least that much.
So, you request no weird stuff, that is reasonable, quite frankly I have experienced a couple of rather bald offers here, didn't enjoy that much, kind of creepy when someone you hardly know makes that kind of an offer. I think I can agree to that condition. I've never heard of anyone accomplishing anything worthwhile by sending
unclothed photos. I think I can agree to that as well. Finally money. I am comfortable thank you, I promise I will never ask you for any money, that is unless we are having coffee and I forget my wallet. OK, let me rephrase that, I won't ask you for money
online ever or otherwise unless it is a trivial amount due to unforesee circumstances like the aforementioned.These things being said, I would like to hear from you, or your dog. Dogs like me, I carry bacon in my pockets. Hmm, now that I think about it maybe that's why my slacks look so bad. Oh well, I hope you have a good day and that it only rains when you are indoors. Unless you like being out in the rain.
I replied to him:
Hi How are you?
Regarding the requests i wanted, i got that idea from a guy who told me i should be wary of people who would do such things. So i simply wrote things i don't want. Thanks for pointing this out to me, i honestly don't like to be introduced in those things since its very superficial
and would make my time unworthy to that point. I'm glad that you've said
hi, likewise i say HI to you too! How are you?
I'm relatively new on this site, a friend of mine had this fairytale thing going on with penpals,they end up together in the end. Some story huh? not like i want that to lead something like that. Hmm i sometimes think about it, for the moment i just want to get to know someone who has the same thing going as me : which is meet new friends.My name is Veruca, i'm 33 and i live in Manila. I write articles on the paper, mostly lifestyle, diet and dogs. My friends say i have a positive disposition. I think i am, i'm intuitive, spontaneous and can talk anything under the sun. I like going to the beach a lot, i always have a tan, i like to snorkel. what else i'm carefree and fun.I'm a pisces, i don't eat beef.
What are you like, Jim?
