    Let's say you are writing an personal ad on the internet, "looking for a pen pal." of sorts.

    In the message you say that you are open-minded and you are not looking for a romance or any specific kind of friends/relationship, so regardless of age,sex,ethnicity, etc. you will welcome all the messages/emails.

    After saying this, is it natural to write in the end:

    "(So,) a message (or an e-mail) from anyone is welcome" ?
    (Or the plural version: "Messages from anyone are welcome"?)

    I'm proofreading it for my Japanese friend and I'm not sure if it sounds natural or not. ("Google"ed with a few results)
    If not it would be great if you could provide me with something better or natural.

    Thank you!

    USA - English
    I think both sentences are fine.

    I would say "(so) your message or email will be most welcome..."
