New Way to Connect Over Quarantine!

New Way to Connect Over Quarantine!

Emme L.

Bored during quarantine? Have you run out of everything to do? Do you want to make new friends? Then try! It’s an international penpal website where you can meet new people and send letters or exchange emails!

Penpals are a fun way to communicate with people all over the world and a cool way to see into someone else’s life! After exchanging addresses, you can mail each other back and forth and play games, share ideas and just talk! It’s a fun and easy adventure to do during quarantine that you don’t even have to leave your room for!

In fact, just check the reviews on the website! All of them say how it is a safe website to make long-lasting friendships! Personally, I’ve been using it for a while now, and it’s a really easy way to communicate. GPF tells how “We geolocate profiles to ensure accuracy of profiles and have implemented many profile safety options to ensure our members are only contacted by profiles of an age and gender that fits their criteria.” They do this to prevent scammers and fake people. All profiles also have to be approved before they can be message or message.

Marco Valentim, a penpal from Portugal in an interview said how, “I like GlobalPenFriends because it helps us to get back on of the “ancient” traditions: writing letters. It’s very easy to use, so it isn’t “old school.”

During quarantine, it can be isolating not to be able to travel or go places or even just see your friends. This website fixes all those problems! First, you go to and create a profile. It will ask you to add your bio, your interests, where and what you are looking for in a penpal, and then to add a few pictures if you want. From there you can send a virtual “smile” at people you want to talk to or just message them! 

Global penfriends is an easy way to connect to people your age all over the world during COVID. Go to to create your profile and make your quarantine better!!
