Location: England, UK
Occupation: Starting my new job as a clerical officer in the NHS hopefully very soon!
About me: I have moved around a lot the past few years between university and moving in with my boyfriend. Recently settled in the North West England with him. Waiting to start my new job very soon I hope! I'm originally from North East England. I live with my boyfriend who I have been with for 4 and a half years, and my 2 guinea pigs :) Im a huge animal lover (except from spiders as I have arachnophobia) , I have a dog but she lives with my parents. Can't wait to get more pets when I buy a house. Im very much a autumn/winter person. I don't have a lot of friends, Im more of a 'few very close friends' rather than someone who has 'loads of friends' but thats the way I like it. I love watching films, gaming, shopping and collecting stuff :) I used to have 2 pen pals (one from Scotland, one from Australia) but we lost contact over the years. I really want to get another pen pal who I have a lot in common with and who likes to keep in contact
Interests/Hobbies: I enjoy reading, gaming (mainly minecraft, the sims, skyrim, mario kart) and have recently started collecting things (like crafty things - I eventually want to make a scrap book). Im a bit of a geek, love science stuff, sci-fi, loot crate etc. i love all kinds of films from horrors to chick flicks and romance. I watch a lot of programs too! I started running a few months ago but due to moving I haven't been able to keep it up, but want to continue it once I get myself sorted!
Music: I love most kinds of music. My ipod is full of all kinds, favourites being Coldplay, Oasis, Jimmy Eat World, Ellie Goulding, The Saturdays, Little Mix, Bon Jovi, Sweet, Status Quo.... the list is pretty endless. I also love the good old 90s dance music as thats my era :)
Movies: Again, I like a lot of different ones, from horror to comedy to chick flicks. My favourite films would probably be The Notebook, My Sisters Keeper, Alice in Wonderland (the disney animated version), Inception, Hide & Seek, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lion King, Anchorman, Role Models, The american pies....again the list is endless
Video Games: The Sims, Minecraft, Little Big Planet, Mario Kart, Skyrim, Pokemon (for ds) are the main ones. I play a few others too.
Books: I enjoy reading but rarely had a chance recently. Love Alice in Wonderland and The Notebook. Looking for some new books to read actually.
TV: I watch sooo many tv programs! Heres a large list of the main ones I love: One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, Being Human (UK), Vampire Diaries, The Originals, CSI, Chicago PD, Once Upon a Time, Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Big Bang Theory, The Inbetweeners, Jersey Shore, Geordie Shore, Friends. Just to name a few :P
Pen pal Info:
Do you want email pals? I'd prefer snail mail, but I wouldn't mind emailing if I found the right person
Do you want snail mail pals? Yes! I miss snail mailing people! I normally only have 2-3 penpals at any time because I think its better to get to know them rather than having loads that you lose track of :)
How long are your mails? It can depend, I normally try and do at least a page of A4 but it can be more :)
Reply time? I will always reply within 3-5 days of receiving the letter :) obv depending on where the person is from it may take a couple of week between our letters but I'm happy with that :)
Would you like your penpal to be male or female? Female
Where would you like them to be from? I don't mind. I think it would be cool to talk to someone from US or Australia but I'm not fussy tbh!
Age preference? Someone roughly my age, so 22-26 I think
What are you looking for in a pen pal? I'd love to find someone who is roughly my age and has a lot of common with me so we have lots to talk about! Someone who is not just gonna send a couple of letters and not be bothered anymore, I want a long term friend for life! :) ideally they won't have too many other pen pals themselves - just because I think you get to know a pen pal better if you arent talking to like 20 others at the same time. I love having a pen pal and I had a really good friendship with the ones I had as a teenager, so I guess I'm looking for the same sort of thing. I just want a new friend really! :)
