PenPal World, founded in 1998, connects millions of global users through its safe, fast matching portal. To maintain security, members make their first interactions directly through the site — then transition their conversations to email or hand-written letters.
A few places to get started are the Tumblr penpal tag and r/penpals on Reddit. You can post a request yourself or reply to someone else’s post. A quick Google search shows you many websites dedicated to penpals as well.
It certainly can. There are lovely stories from wartime about soldiers falling in love with pen-pal sweethearts.

Writers can submit a letter and/or photo online at ReadyToCare.com/penpals. From there, Home Instead will screen each letter for safety and security and pass it along to an aging adult. Participants must be age 13 or above, unless the submission is coordinated by a parent or teacher.
Falling in love through letter writing has been going on for hundreds of years. … Letter writing as a romantic process was—and, to some extent, still is—particularly prevalent during prolonged periods of war, when men are far away from home, and the only way for them to communicate with loved ones is through letters.
Most people’s experiences with pen pals are limited to just a few letters exchanged at school age. But some pen pals write to each other for years, even decades – one pair of pen pals ended up writing to each other for 80 years.
