I’ve tried dating on the internet for several years, with mixed results… I met the two loves of my life on here a few years back, and met a few real psychos in the process, too, so I can’t really say if I recommend using this as a meeting tool or not. I thought you might be interested in the story of my worst meeting ever on the net.
Many years ago the idea of pen friends was born. The idea was to create a way by which friendly contacts could be initiated between people worldwide. Photos and profiles of those seeking friendship were published in magazines. Those seeking friends (pen friends or pen pals), could contact people of their choice by writing. If the recipient replies, communications starts between both pen friends.
