I feel like I’m making too many of these posts, and I probably am, but apologies again for my late replies! I’ve been caught up with moving to my college dorm and starting my classes and yesterday I actually got pretty sick for no reason for like the third time in about 2 weeks. So again, sorry for my late replies. I’m hoping that over the weekend I will be able to revisit the messages I’ve gotten and send out some responses!
At this moment I haven’t been receiving any surveys so I’m about to go on another promoting binge to hopefully get more people interested in this project. It definitely helps if you reblog the post I will make and tell your friends about the project, make your own post about it on tumblr! Anything helps to spread the word :)
You might not be hearing back from me for about a week or so. I’ve just gotten my wisdom teeth out yesterday morning so I’ve been staying away from technology since I’m on very strong pain killers. Sorry for the delay and I promise that as soon as I’m feeling better and have finished recovering I will continue matching people up and messaging those who have contacted me. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
I apologize profusely to those of you who might not have heard from me at all and those who haven’t heard from me in quite awhile.
I’ve had some people retract their surveys and it’s a little difficult to organize who is still interested so if you are someone that hasn’t heard from me at all/recently and you are still interested in getting a pen pal then please message me! Feel free to pester me!
I also understand that communication on Tumblr can be difficult, sometimes messages get lost and other times I lose a chance to contact those who have submitted a survey because their ask/submit is turned off on their blog. This is really no ones fault, its just unlucky and I really hate to just let it go by, I’d like to fix it if I can!
Mostly I just urge you not to get frustrated, as I am trying my best to match people up! Again, contact me if you’re still interested and haven’t heard from me and I’ll be able to tell you what your specific situation is!
Sorry if it has been a while since any of you have submitted your surveys and you’ve yet to hear back from me, I can assure you I’m working to match you up.
Sometimes it’s difficult depending of the number of surveys I receive to get everyone matched up. Be sure to spread the word about letterstoapenpal so that I can continue to match people up!
I haven’t been able to message you because your ask box and submit is disabled! Message me back as soon as you see this or I’ll have to assign your pen pal to someone else!
For that, I’d have to say no. I’d be okay with you signing up for her, but I don’t match people up based on their sexuality. I don’t ask about peoples sexuality because it’s none of my business.
If someone is concerned about their pen pals open-mindedness then the most I would ever ask of someone is if they are open-minded enough to not judge. I want people to be comfortable, but at the same time I’m not necessarily willing to cross a line into asking about someone’s specific sexuality because I feel that’s private information.
I hope this helps and I’m sorry if it doesn’t. Perhaps if your friend is open to just having a friendly ear to listen to her then you should sign her up, but I’m not asking anyone about their sexuality.
Not at all! You could give me your email so that I can contact you that way, tumblr is in no way a requirement.
Message me if you’ve submitted your applications and you’d be okay with emailing a pen pal instead of writing!
Distance can be hard sometimes and I know that stamps don’t come cheap these days so if someone is willing to email instead that would be very helpful!
I apologize to you guys from the long wait on things!
AP testing took me by storm and I wasn’t expecting to be so out of it! I should be getting back into the groove of things, thank you for your patience!
I can’t get in contact with you because you don’t appear to have your ask or submission pages working. Get back to me so that I can get you your pen pal!
