One of the beautiful things about the Internet is it brings people closer together, whether it's old friends on social media or complete strangers on this new email pen pal service. Based in France, startup Happenstance wants to connect you with one other person once a month via email correspondence. This person could be anywhere in the world.
The private social networking platform enables you to meet new people and expand your worldview by facilitating thought-provoking communication. After you fill in the form, you will be introduced to a new email pen pal once a month. It's up to you to continue chatting from there. The free service uses an algorithm to match people based on conversation-triggering criteria and common interests.
