We have only been writing a few months, some less but my pen pals ages run the gamut from 50-20, I'm 30. Similar to my friends ages. We all have somethings in common, and some things that are different. I think it is what makes us more able to relate to each rather than not. Its why we get along.
Life would be very boring if it was all black and white, that is why rainbows are so pretty.
