Do you find it hard to write the first letter?

I have been penpalling since I was a girl, so around 20 years have I had this hobby. But still do I find the first letter hard to write, why is it so many that have this feelling about the intro letters??

I guess I feel its hard because I'm just in one letter try to tell who I'm and get the new pal to want to write me back. Because it has happen that you never hear from them again, but is this because your letter was boring or is it a person that not really are looking for a new penpal?

But anyway I find it important to tell them who I'm in the first letter. Your name (ofcourse), age (when you have birthday), were you are living and who you are living with. Perhaps importants dates in your life (when you started your relationship,got married, got kids....)
I also like to tell them about my familly. I also sometimes tell them about my childhood, were I was living....

Let them know what I do for living, what are my hobbies and if I already know we have something in comment I write more about this.

You can also let them know whats music and tv shows you are a fan of, sometimes you have much in comment here:)

But I also try to write about something that has just happen in my life, because I feel the letter just need something else then just information about myself :p

What do you find it important to write in the first letter?
Do you like or hate to write this intro letter?
Have you wrote a introduce letter and never heard from the pal again?

I'm now a member of Letter writers alliance and today did I get the welcome letter. If you are into penpalling why not join this too?

15th August did I got letter from Lene in Denmark and from my very close pal Tamera from Norway.

14 August I got very surprised when I open the mailbox and found this parsel waiting for me.
It was a birthdaypresent and ofcourse a letter from Monica from Norway. 

Monday 13 August did I mail letters for Victoria and Bente in Norway and to Veronique in Netherlands. Hope that Veronique will receive the letter, I had a problem earlier in the summer and the letter came in return to me after a while. Even if I wrote correct address. Sometimes I just dont understand what is happening under the mails trip. One time a letter used 2 year to received a pal inBelgium.
Have something like this happen to you?
