Many would say that online pen pal correspondences in the
form of emails just cannot compare with receiving a nice crisp
envelope in the mail from your snail mail pen pal.
There is the anticipation of opening the envelope, wondering
what your pen pal has written in their mailing and if there
are any enclosures such as personal photos.
Then seeing your snail mail pen pal's handwriting somehow
connects you to your distant friend in a special way -- you
can imagine your penfriend sitting down and actually writing
the words that you are now reading.
For many, to communicate with a pen pal by so-called snail
mail is an ideal, yet the reality for most people is probably
that it is much faster to converse with pen pals online.
Online pen pals offer the advantage over the snail mail pen
pal of ease of use, speed, and a quick reply. If you use voice
recognition software, as I do, writing an e-mail to a penpal
or to anybody else becomes a very fast process, akin to simply
dictating what you want to say.
Yet communicating with pen pals online does lack the authenticity,
even the romance of a handwritten letter dropped into the
mail and the reply eagerly awaited. Do we have to sacrifice
creativity and romance in the name of speed and efficiency?
Perhaps not. There may be a way to get the best of both the
romantic snail mail letter and the efficient online equivalent.
My suggestion is that pen pal relationships are best first
established online. Then once you find a kindred spirit amongst
your online penpals who also values the old-fashioned way
of doing things through the mail, you can agree to 'snail
mail' each other sometimes in the traditional way.
In this way you can have your cake and eat it -- namely you
can be an online pen pal, yet still reap the benefits ofbe
old-fashioned spirit of snail mail style romance!
