Hello “Let’s Bfriends”,

I was surfing the net and came across your site. In my opinion it is a good idea to find a penpal and improve your Enlish skills. It’s amazing that your site has more than 1,000,000 members. I also would like to join your site because I am looking for English-speaking email friends.

My name is Maxim and I am a normal teenager from Ukraine, the biggest and in my opinion the most beautiful country in Europe. I am 15 years old and my birthday is on the 6th of June. I am a tall, dark-haired and brown-eyed boy. I like to have my hair fashionably cut. I prefer wearing casual clothes which keep me comfortable. I am friendly, hard working, ready to help, reliable and understanding but sometimes I can be very lazy.

I am crazy about up-to-date gadgets and computer games. Actually I’m fond of playing online games with friends from different countries. I am fond of listening to music. The style of music I prefer is rap and I also don’t mind listening to hip-hop but I hate classical music. I enjoy riding my bike and one of my dreams is to try riding downhill in the Carpathians.

I will be happy to find a cheerful, good-humored and interested in IT technologies pen pal. I enjoy the company of quiet, modest people. I think it will be great if my friend has the same interests as I do. If you fancy getting in touch with me, then send me an email.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
