Mantener correspondencia...

how do you correctly say we are just corresponding with each other. i want to use the word correspond and nothing else. i wrote "solo nosotros somos mantener correspondencia y nada mas." for some reason i don't think the word correspondiendo can be used even though i don't see why not. for example i know i cant say "solo nosotros somos correspondiendo y nada mas." so how would you say it in the correct manner?

You're right to feel it strange. We don't use the verb "corresponder" to talk about writing letters, but "escribir".

You can say:

Nosotros sólo nos escribimos y nada más.

Nosotros sólo mantenemos correspondencia. No hay nada más.

Tener/mantener una relación por correspondencia también, ¿no?

You are right refer to the word Corresponder, it's mainly used when you going to do something to someone.

When you write one letter, you should to use Escribir, also you can apply the word Correspodencia as you have said before.

Bueno, claro que no son las únicas posibilidades, pero ya decir "una relación" es menos neutral y requiere explicar algo más, para que no se dé el malentendido que Hola quiere evitar, ¿no crees?

Correcto. Se me olvidó poner escribir relación/amistad

Hmm después ni se quiere reconocer al crío...

Eso.

"Amistad por correspondencia" es una buena opción.
