I say answer to it here so it's all in one place, if you don't fel comfortable doing that, peamail it to me or Joyrey.We are on opposite timezomes so one of us should be up at any given time to help...lol. I may need more help as it goes along so some of you peas who offered may get taken up on the offer

What we will do is probably draw numbers and randomly match up if say the person didn't want a foreign pal then the foreign pal would go back in the hat...does that make sense?

So your not going to use the questionaire to match? Why even use it?

Not rying to be snarky at all, but my keyboard is acting up, the T and E buttons popped off, and it is harder for me to type than usual.

I figured we could use it may to determine groups....or based on answers we could figure out another preferred matching system. If nothing else I thought it gave their partners some idea what to write to them about.

I figure it can't hurt to answer it, as we don't have a certain matching system in place...because I have no answer to questions like do you want to be matched based on religions, political leanings,etc...kwim?

I really need the answers to see what the preferred method of matching is.

Any suggestions welcome. Never matched such a large group. I do have joyrey helping and some others making sure no one gets left off the list,etc.

But the ONLY person who will have your addy is your partner.

Let's just make it easy with the same rules for everyone. IF you want to be matched with a partner then please take a moment answer the questions Jade listed and we will match everyone with the pea they have the most in common with. If you don't want to post all the info out in the open you can peamail it to one of us.

Please respond by the end of the month and we'll match everyone up and let people know by the 10th of Nov.

when we pea mail you the "questionaire" do you want us to give you our number on the list so that you know where we all are on the list? I thought maybe that would probably make it easier so that you don't have to search the list for our name.....

28.Anything that you wouldn't look for in a penpal? Someone that constantly needs and only wants validation. Advice, support etc I'm on board with, just not constant petty validation.

29.Anything that you would look for in a pen pal ? I think I typed it earlier that I would love a pen pal who has had small children within the last few years. All my girlfriends are already at pre-teen stage it seems and they don't remember toddler very well.

Decorating is my passion. I also really love decorating for holidays. And I like to cook and bake. Oh, and I love to organize!

6. What are some other areas of interest, be particular
I'm interested in TV (I watch a lot!), read lots of magazines because they are easier in small chunks than books, sociology, exercising, and playing games.

7. What is your favorite color and color combination?
I love color. Favorite depends on what it's for. To wear: brown. Colors that draws me in to buy a cute wallet or scarf or something: red, pink. And no matter the color combo, if it has polka dots, I'm buying it!

8. Are you religious?
Yes. I am a Christian. I work part time at our church and think it would be awesome to have a Christian penpal to pray for and discuss some things.

9. Do you mind having an overseas penpal, due to postage?
No thanks. While it would be neat, I hate the PO and would never have the right postage!

19. Dreams or wishes.

not really

21. Age, and would you like a partner in a certain age range?
I'm 38 and I could go any way with age. I'm young at heart, , but I had my kids young, so I might have plenty in common with someone a bit older than me, too.
22. Birthday- Month and Day
July 17

24.Does offensive lanuage bother you?
Depends on setting -dinner out with girlfriends: some is OK, people saying it on the street in front of kids or used to strangers. Big NOT OK!

25.Any topics off limits to you?
No, but if I have a liberal pen pal we probably would really differ on politics and it might be best to stay away from that!

26. Are you a more liberal or conservative thinker and would you prefer a like minded partner or does it matter
Totally Conservative. I'd really be OK with anything as long as my penpal didn't really want to discuss politics and was a "ok to disagree" type. I'm not a "my way or the highway" person, but I do need respect and kindness towards both me and my views.

27. Pet peeves
I have a lot. Trying to work on not being so critical. Bad driving is one. Using apostrophies incorrectly kills me. Selfishness.
