Mathematical penfriends
How can I find people who are interested in correspondence on mathematics and are also around my age on the net? By correspondence I mean emails.
I can't see many people interested in mathematics on popular social networks, or if there are, it's not possible to find them through searching. I'm 19 and an undergraduate in maths. Thanks for the help in advance.

I would warn against starting up email conversations with complete strangers on the internet. If anyone does, they should create a dummy email account just for this purpose and never give out any personal information.

Another reason Greg should start up that dating site :)

I'm always happy to start a "mathematical correspondence"!
I'm currently 20 years old, PM me if you want to chat 
Re: Mathematical penfriends
I would also like to have a mathematics correspondence. It could be fun :smile: PM me if you want.

Re: Mathematical penfriends
warning: I don't know that much though!

I think it can be better for you to be "outclassed" by others though, makes it easier for you to learn! 
Re: Mathematical penfriends
Hi everyone,
Thank you Evo for the warning. I've had penpals to improve my language skills and most of them have turned out to be very nice people. But unfortunately they at best didn't mind talking about mathematics. Ivan92, I'm not really looking for dating or anything similar. And I have an age requirement only because I like to discuss ideas with someone who knows roughly as much as I know. It would be great to work on interesting problems and read books together. If someone is much younger or older than me, then they usually know much less or more than I. Sure I can get my questions answered this way, but that's not what I'm looking for either. I hope this clarifies my point. micromass, I'm afraid you know too much for my purposes, but I hope we can be friends here in PF at least. :wink: And wisvuze, I'll PM you to see if we have anything to talk about.:approve: Thank you all for your posts.

I am 16 and I would like to do this. Whenever I talk to people on a chatroom or suspiciouslooking site I always use a dummy email address used for that kind of thing with a madeup name.
I would like to do it with people my age but the people my age are going to be starting Year 12 next year and learning about basic differentiation and sequences but I have covered these topics 23 years ago. As such I wouldn't mind doing it with people a bit older. 
Re: Mathematical penfriends
Hi,
I'm a bit ashamed to say this, but reading some of your posts in PF, I've realized I need to learn a lot more before I can have any useful discussion with any of you. Sorry for the inconvenience and I hope these posts will be of benefit to someone looking for something similar. Bests.
