    My first reply took about six weeks in all, and I had many where there was no reply whatsoever. You have a better chance of getting replies as a woman - it's a fact of life, nothing to do with sexism on my part - than we do, but these things take time anyway.

    Lots of reasons why you have not heard back yet: no stamps, paper or envelopes to write, depressed, busy with work and or school, simply doesn't want to respond, already has a special pen pal and doesn't want to write you.

    One of my pals recently wrote there was a riot and he didn't feel like writing. A few days later he wrote and said he was out of supplies because his facility was on lock down and he couldn't go out and hustle said supplies.

    Be patient. I know it's hard. I've been there.

    I have the same "problem". I'm 24 y.o. woman from the Czech Republic and I wrote to 3 men. It's been 3 weeks but I haven't got a reply yet. I suppose 3 weeks are still a bit early tho.

    Ahoj krajanko

    3 weeks is the minimum to get a reply to CZ. The letter takes at least a week to get over the ocean and another to get back. Then it's days or even weeks before the mail room passes the letter to the inmate. It usually takes 4-5 weeks to receive a response letter.
