Any thoughts on how to find and keep a penpal ? Anything and everything

I am a relatively a new memeber, so I am quite curious; I would like to hear about your own experiences on penpal-gate ! How did you find and manage to keep a penpal ?
Merci d'avance :)

Hello,my name is Nastya.
I sent to many people short letters I inroduced myself there.Some of them answered me and I am happy to communicate with all of them now,
Good luck!

Hi! Through asking especially for letters I've found a lot of penpals. If you have certain times when you write each other, for example once a month, it's easy to stay in contact.

Hi :) I ask a lot of question and see if he/she answers and asks too. Then, if we have a good feeling, we really become penpal.
