you are funny, thank u. yes i met some interesting people but most were from N Africa and wanted money.. I did meet an intelligent guy from Syria who was a lecturer now in college in Sweden, This was years ago but thank u for respondingOw! I remember I was on pen pal site once. It 's even called Palpen or something close to it. I went there to practice languages. And it was like "OMFG! Am I on a dating site?" , because I have been attacked by males from Turkey, Morocco, and etc with poor English and stupid conversations which I did not want. I had to block 1/2 of list of the countries, I suppose, but anyway this sort of guys have been creeping in still somehow. My next step was to limit all the "palls" to girls only. But no one freaking girl wanted to speak with me. Well, I tried to speak with 2 actually, without success. I had good idea they definitely preferred speaking with boys.
