I don't have $20! But, I'm better off writing to my camp counselor who is my pen pal other than paying monet for one on here

by LivieLoo on 9/22/2012 4:12:49 PM

 
 



I payed and did the GL thing. I got 5 pen pals! But only 2 of them answered! 1 doesn't write much and the other is okay. All in all, I'm not sure if you guys should do this.

I was really about to go use this pen pal thing! Does anyone know a good website to find a pen pal? Like with real people my age? (13) anything would be helpful thanks so much! Smile P.S. to Girl's Life: if you ever start it up again, I'll be your first customer! haha Smile

$20, really GL? Money doesn't buy friends. And 18 years of taking $20 from girls??? I'm glad this is discontinued. I would've never paid $20 just to have more friends that also paid for me to be their friend.

I had signed up for the pen pals program and after these LONG six or seven or eight weeks of waiting, checked up on here and saw that it is discontinued Frown This in itself made me sad but now I have paid $20 and never got any pen pal. Is there anything that can be done about that please?

Hey this is sort of a weird question but I think you guys are the the only ones who might be able to help me but anyway, I met this girl on vacation, and she was awesome! We were from then on friends!! Smile I gave her my email like at the LAST POSSIBLE SECOND (we then left the country) and expected her to email me back in like 2 weeks. But it's been a couple of months already and she hasn't contacted me. I really want to talk to her again! Is there any way you can help me? She was from England. Thanks so much (and if you can't find her I won't be offended nothing in my efforts to find her have EVER worked)




Hey gal!

That sounds like a fun vacay! Hmm, I'm not sure what else to try besides e-mail. It's possible she hasn't had access to her e-mail for a few weeks. Give her a little more time to respond. After that, try again. If your parents met her's maybe they have some contact information. Good luck!

"MOD MOD MOD! My mom was investigating the pen pals program and decided to let me try it. So I clicked on the link and it said that I couldn't because the pen pals program is no longer active? Why?"




Hey babe,

I'm really sorry, but it was a decision made by all of our editors to discontinue the pen pal program after many years of success. Luckily, there are lots of "digital" ways to make friends on the GL website - or you could chat with your teacher about starting a pen pal program with a local school. We did at my school and it was a lot of fun Smile Sorry girlie!

I clicked on that link for the application and the link popped up and said, "After 18 amazing years pen pals has come to a close..." I thought, "what?!" I just got Girl's Life in the mail yesterday and I saw the pen pals thing inside of the magazine and thought it'd be cool to participate in but I guess you won't be getting my $20!
Very disappointed. Frown

by steff12345 on 3/3/2012 9:37:04 AM

 
 

20 bucks? Really? We pay for the magazine, isn't that enough?!?! I got a pen pal in Japan, I just looked up an address in Japan and wrote to it. Her name is Miyuki Mimmiru, she is very nice. Just look up a random address, where a girl lives, and see if you get anything back. Easy enough? It's pretty much free, unless it's a foreign country you pay a couple bucks for postage. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY PEOPLE!

I would love a pen pal but I wouldn't pay $20.00 for a pen pal anyways its a waste of money in my opinion. There could also be a creeper out there or none of the girls could talk to you.

I really want a pen pal! but sadly, my mommy don't let me. she says "Its too dangerous" "How sure that they will response?" like that. so, can you tell me how can I convince my mom that it is safe and how can i be so sure that the one i am mailing is not a hacker or spammer or some bad people pretending? and my mom asks why it costs you $20? my mom says its a little expensive but if you tell us why it costs it a lot, maybe she will let me have a pen pal. please tell me.




Hey girl, the $20 is a processing file. We have someone go through all the applications and match you and your future penpal up to make sure you're compatible. The charge for the penpal goes toward keeping the process as efficient and as safe as it is. There aren't many places where you have someone screening your penpal for you, and just finding on online rather than through an organization like GL can be a bit shady.

I think the $20.00 fee for a friend (who might not even talk to you) is a little too much. I think it should be free so if you want a new penpal you don't have to pay another $20.00. I also think that not all of the penpals are real girls who are tweens. I have heard that some people who get penpals get people who are looking for kids to take places, but they say they are just like you. I would wish that you would give each person who signs up like questions so you can figure out if they are really a girl who would be a good penpal, or if they are just a fluke. So if I was the girlslife director who choses everything, I would drop the $20.00 fee and check to see if there is anything weird about the girl who signed up to be a penpal.

I want a pen pal but in the comments people are sayin that it dosent work and that would be a waste of 20$

I agree with the people about online predators...it sounds like a good idea but we're taught ALL THE TIME not to talk to strangers online and who knows if it's a teenage girl or a middle-aged stalker... Brittany G.

I did this,and i sent an e-mail to every one of the girls that GL sent me...one of them responded, but they only corresponded with me a few times..then they stopped.

by volleyballer(: on 3/5/2011 10:12:57 PM

 
 

sounds fun but my family doesn't have 20 bucks to randomly spend. I have a few email ones though, one of them is from China!

by IceTigers on 3/5/2011 11:57:40 AM

 
 

I think I got 5 or 6 girls. I only contacted 3 so far. 2 replied. One of them responds to me weekly and the other hasn't responded for weeks.

by kirklin22 on 2/20/2011 9:08:29 PM

 
 

sounds fun, but i do agree with the other comments about online predators. hopefully none of them would be taking advantage of the site, so i may try it

by volleyballchick7 on 2/13/2011 7:19:28 PM

 
 

$20 application fee???
I find that hardly fair - and, why are they GL subscribers when they could be random girls who may or may not subscribe to this magazine from foreign countries!
I'm going to visit a free pen pal website because of the fee, but thanks anyway! Smile

by abbeyroad99 on 2/13/2011 4:35:16 PM

 
 

It wuold be nice to have a pen pal but what if it is just a guy using a fake name just to get into a girl's pants.

by ladybug7800 on 2/13/2011 2:50:17 PM

 
 

too expencive,well...um i think they should let it be free

by 644lytzy on 2/12/2011 4:31:59 PM

 
 

I'm sorry, but wouldn't it be REALLY easy for some internet predator to fill out and submit the form, and start stalking five innocent teenage girls? (just saying...)

by liviegirl_27 on 2/9/2011 9:14:56 PM

 
 

Pen pals would be cool. Hopefully they aren't internet predators. Smile

i could use a pen pal Laughing

by homiecd on 1/28/2011 9:05:42 PM

 
 

if it was free then probaly but kinda a rip off... Brittany T.

by cookies1500 on 1/26/2011 4:17:20 PM

 
 

I agree it is stupid to pay 20$ for a penpal, just use penpal world.com, its FREE and if anyone wants to be my penpal, for free my e-mail is alli_hippie@yahoo.com ;)

by gothhippie on 1/25/2011 5:22:13 PM

 
 

ya u could just find some one on GL and just talk to them like a pen pal.

by mazzie on 1/23/2011 8:31:15 PM

 
 

I'm not paying 20 bucks a month i thought it was like email oh and comment ur email or if u can send a message send ur email so to be penpals.

by gamergirl536 on 1/22/2011 3:47:23 PM

 
 

i dont think you should pay for your friends. i mean they are friends..

by thinkpink3187 on 1/21/2011 10:04:33 PM

 
 

why do we need to pay a fee of twenty dollars???

by sapphirekope on 1/21/2011 9:59:32 PM

 
 

Great program! I got this as a Christmas present but it just came yesterday. I already got my first response! I recommend!

Realllly awesome idea just pretty pricey! Too much Moolah$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I already have a penpal and it didnt cost me a thing.. but then again i met her in real life bbut she lives far away

by cutekick909 on 1/18/2011 10:42:33 PM

 
 

$20 IS a lot of money. I mean you're payin' 4 ur own "friends".

This is too exspensive i mean wut if there really wasnt no one?

Why should we have to pay....I guess i have enough friends at school...lol

$20? REALLY?  Marly Z.

by wildchild96 on 1/15/2011 8:32:18 PM

 
 

we could get our own pen pals! and not pay!

by facebookchicka on 1/15/2011 3:29:04 PM

 
 

It cost way to much.I mean, $20??? It's easier to find a new friend on the street then to pay that much!

by artZie on 1/13/2011 7:20:56 PM

 
 

my mom will not let me wit cost to much to just talk to some one

by janelle20103 on 1/12/2011 1:13:57 AM

 
 

i did it but my pen pal split after like 2 days. =(

by lightbulb540 on 1/11/2011 7:48:59 PM

 
 

MOD
heyy, I really want a pen pal, but my mom won't let me. She thinks its too easy for a creeper to talk to me and stuff. So how do I get her to let me? And also, how do you know the person isn't a creeper? Thanks!




Hey girlie. Tell your mom that GL actually has a pen pal system where we allow girls to write to girls across the country. Check it out, http://www.girlslife.com/post/2010/09/22/Get-the-Write-Friend.aspx.

I THINK $20 IS A bit too much besides i can chat with girls on the comment box

by 644lytzy on 1/8/2011 2:33:35 PM

 
 

i think its too muck just for A PEN PAL!Frown

by 644lytzy on 1/8/2011 2:28:58 PM

 
 

my sister got a pen pal through another magazine and i think it was free or like $10 and now my sister and her pen pal are like best friends. they used to write letters back and forth but now that their so close they mostly call and text each other. They even have the same exact birthday.

by dance33 on 1/8/2011 11:32:42 AM

 
 

I think the price is reasonable . I'm just worried that my pen pals and i wont get along

by maddie95 on 1/1/2011 9:10:52 PM

 
 

this sounds like fun but the only thing keeping me away is the $20 part

by angiestar1325 on 1/1/2011 8:39:40 PM

 
 

I think this is really awesome! You get to meet someone new! And, your both girls, so you can relate. It will also keep you busy. I ♥ this idea a lot!

by niknik99 on 1/1/2011 11:14:56 AM

 
 

I just signed up. I think it will be worth it the only thing is the $20. Although you do get 5 pen pals so its like $4 per girl, right? Anyway I can also spend growing up with her though email and stuff. I can have my personal life and someone I can trust have have a great friendship with!

by madisonbieker101 on 12/31/2010 2:46:47 AM

 
 

Yah i agree i really dont like to pay like 20 dollars for a pen pal u should just get their email and write to them on email

by kaylen_summer14 on 12/30/2010 3:32:21 PM

 
 

Hey!! I just signed up to get a pen pal. I hope the names come!! I think $20 is reasonable since you might get 10 girls writing you. But I hope the people I get actually write me back!!

i have always wanted to have a pen pal or two, but my fam is kinda low on green right now which makes kinda upset because i was looking forward to it till i read that there is a fine. that really bites)=

i'm not even going to try to many peeps say it don't work. and who whould pay $20 not me

thanks for telling me you still havent gotten ur pen pal now i know not to pay the 20$ for nothing and emsubu its email not snail mail silly!

I signed up for this in August and I STILL haven't gotten anything about it. It's a major rip-off. And I was really looking forward to it to >Frown

by Rachoo1611 on 11/10/2010 12:40:36 PM

 
 

i think we should email each other instead, that way we wont have to wait ffor the mail so long. it takes 4 days for a letter to get to texas from where i am, then 4 days to get here from there. emailing wouldnt take that much time...

by htrent1 on 11/8/2010 9:08:07 PM

 
 

They do have to pay to keep this site and their magazine running so they decided to create this pen pal thing. Frown

by XxEmicant_EmoryxX on 11/6/2010 7:00:26 AM

 
 

That's a good idea! I just can't do it because my mom won't pay. Frown Oh well......Smile

by Ibdoglover on 11/5/2010 10:46:56 PM

 
 

omg! it should totally be free! I mean who's gonna pay 20 dollars just to send a few letters that are also gonna have a price for stamps and the paper and stuff...Just saying.

by emsubu on 11/4/2010 8:25:47 PM

 
 

Now there are comments saying that it doesn't work. Wow what a rip off GL. We want to connect with other people at least let us do that. Some people in this world are living in a box and risking their life for 20 dollars a day and here we are paying 20 dollars for a stupid pen pal thing that doesn't even work. I mean come on peopleSmile love, hannah m

by GLHannahxoxo9498 on 11/2/2010 7:09:05 PM

 
 

Why do we have to pay 20 dollars. It should totally be free. All we want to do is connect with other people. Some of us don't know what life is like down in Florida or Nebraska why do we have to pay to find out? That's what I have to say about thatSmile LOL xoxo forever, Hannah M

by GLHannahxoxo9498 on 11/2/2010 7:04:51 PM

 
 

i fell like it should be free. because its basically we are interested and its not like your using your stamps to send back and forth with each other! right?

by jayloo10 on 10/26/2010 6:10:50 PM

 
 

why dont weee just start our online penpal thing go to my page and post things and ill start itSmile but its gonna be through email!!!

by crowellgirl2 on 10/17/2010 3:27:01 PM

 
 

I guess it's reasonable. Just asking, how many girls are there out there as pen pals. Because if there's a lot, maybe, I'll send it in...

by chellie on 10/16/2010 1:08:00 PM

 
 

I wish it didn't cost so much. I have so much in my mind that I want to let it out but the Pen Pals cost too much.

Hey girl!  GL's program is a great, safe way to get a pen pal.  If you don't have the money, perhaps you can do some extra chores or ask your parents to let you do it as a birthday/holiday present!  Smile

by thepeace808 on 10/9/2010 12:12:24 AM

 
 

I was just wondering what the money is for? I mean, it's not a problem but what does it go towards? Really, it would be more practical if it was through Girl's Life like maybe if you had a Girl's Life Pen Pal section where you could receive the info? Just sayin'! Smile

would we b able to do this without payng or giving full names / just by email

 

Hey girlie, you need to give your full name and pay to get pen pals. Your full name won't be given out to your pen pals though.
