I have used GPF three years ago for the first time and with some of my pen pals I still am in contact with to this day. Have found lovely friends here and I’m looking forward to meeting many more.

I met so far nice people and I like Global Penfriends very much so far. Maybe the search for new people could be even more specific.

So far I only have good experiences with the site. In my opinion is a safe way to get to know people around the world. Obviously we have to be cautious with the information we are sharing cuz we don’t really know the person behind the messages but I’ve only encountered kind people and friends!
