    If the number of people that fit your requirements are that low why don't you just go out and meet people who are doing the same degree as you, then you'll see them face to face and you'll know that they share your interests

    This is kind of strange but recently I've been thinking about how cool it would be to have a female pen pal. I have always had male friends but never a female friend and trying to find one where I live is so blasé if you know what I mean. I tried looking on Omegle but there was a <1% success rate and I got banned twice for no reason WTF! Anyway if anybody here wants to be my pen pal (its a pretty good deal tbh) you need to meet certain requirements as implied in my message below. I'm not sure if this is a permanent job position, see how it goes.

    This is the message I left when I went on Omegle:
    Hi! I am an 18 year old male currently living in the UK but hoping to relocate to the US in the future. I am interested in meeting an intelligent, attractive female around my age with interests in biology, chemistry and biochemistry, who would be willing to Google/Skypechat with me as an online friend.

    Oh and also in before you're really desperate or have a drink of water to quench your thirst. It's not necessarily a girlfriend, just a pen pal. If anybody's going to be trolling around here It's going to be me
    care to dance?

    I have loads of friends with the same interests on there - plenty of Biochemists :fluffy:
    the website?

    sounds cool, you know in a cool way.

    Because I want a pen pal which implies distance. Anyway I have looked at some websites and there are some very interesting people so I don't think finding a pen pal will be a problem anymore.

    So you'd reject a potential partner on the basis that they do/want to do an arts university course?
    Yes of course. I'm interested in science. What would we talk about?

    I want a penpal! Sounds like a cool idea! PM me if you're interested in random e-mail exchange. Not looking for a date or anything - just penpal chat! :pierre: Preferably someone outside the UK because UK people are boring and as common as ****!

    Why on earth do you need an attractive penpal when you arent looking for a girlfriend... i could understand that qualification then but as just a penpal its surely irrelevant if the person meets the intellectual criteria and age stuff...

    If you've read through the posts you will see that I was being a bit misleading at first and I am actually looking for a potential girlfriend.

    Sorry I've temporarily abandoned you all for PenPalWorld which is great (not meant to be an advertisement or anything ).

    Ahhh well okay then that makes more sense, i only read the first few posts
    Good luck with that although i wouldnt necessarily stick to people just interested in biology and chemistry, if youre both into the exact same thing you will run out of discussions alot quicker than with any other person, or at least thats what ive found

    Sounds like you want to do the two most beta male hobbies possible at the same time: reading and being in the friendzone. Maybe it will form a double negative and you will end up getting laid a lot but you need to ask a professional physicist to be sure.
    Lmao this get rekt OP just LOL.
