Feedback from British Penpals members

British Penpals was set up for people to have fun, make friends and maybe even find romance through our site. Here are just a few of the success stories we can tell you about:

March 2009: e-mail from Timothy
“Thanks to your website I have found my soul mate and we plan on marrying in October”

February 2009: e-mail from Bradley
I would like to cancel my membership.  It has served it’s purpose.  I’ve met 
and married a stunning woman who contacted me via your site.  Thank you

‘Joining British Penpals was a great idea of mine (I don’t get many), and because of it I have made many new friends with similar interests to my own. Thank you so much”


“I was recently a member of your web site, but I decided to leave after not receiving much response. I jumped the gun!!!! I couldn’t have been more wrong and have now met some lovely people, it just took them a while to respond. I was wondering if it was possible for me to rejoin your site? Please let me know if that is the case and whether I would just follow the same joining procedure as first timers?”

June 2008: e-mail from Louise
“I just wanted to say that it is thanks to this website that I met my partner. We started to write to each other whilst he was in Afghanistan, we wrote for 7 months and we met each other when he came home. We have now been with other for over a year and we are planning our long term future together. I never dreamt that I would find the love of my life on this site but it is thanks to you that we found each other.”
