My name is Ricky Cagle. I'm on Death Row for the murder of a 30 year old man. I have been locked up 27 years.

I'm hoping to find someone that enjoys corresponding by letters or phone conversations. I enjoy music, sports, and artwork. I was a male dancer, tattoo artist and a roadie for 80's Rock and Roll bands before I got locked up.

I believe true friendship should be held in a...

Music is a big part of my day. Prison is a lonely place, a real struggle for beating boredom! All types of music fill my days...

By its very design, life is supposed to be hard, and it’s made to be rough at times. Those are factors that we should always be willing to embrace.

Like it or not, those factors are relevant to each of us. But they should not stop us from wanting to keep going and to continue growing. Struggle is real and can start growth if we allow it to. Being misunderstood can add an element of...

Dear Reader,

How are you? All my best to you if you found my page! My name is Johnathan and I'm looking for great friends.

I'm on condemned row so it would be cool to find someone that's got time to write and talk about whatever we can think of. On Death Row where time is valuable and every day must be lived completely and made valuable, friendship is fulfilling in ways...

Hi, I'm a 46-year young black man who was for the most part raised by my grandmother in Jackson, MS.

I like watching American football, basketball, and track and field. That's not to say that I won't watch others, which I do, those are just my favorite sports. I love to read; fantasy is my favorite genre but I'll read any book that grabs my attention. I also like to learn new things. I...


Merry Meet,

My name is Jeffrey. I follow the path of the old ways. I’m looking to meet folks in the Wiccan community to assist in my further education in the art of the craft and establish contacts to dance in the circle of life together, corresponding.

While incarcerated, letters are very important. When a person sits and takes the time to write and share that moment of their...

Introduce You for Friendships

A reflection of you defines you in a friendship. I seek meaning and understanding that defines friendship, where education of us teaches us about each other.

I enjoy studying people and business concepts to understand who they are in their life story.

Our reflections of self teach us how to live our life despite all the challenges that try...

Hello from the other side. The “other side” is a prison unit where Texas has its Death Row. This is a place of darkness where light, somehow, continues to shine. The light is hope—and hope is where you come in. I’m looking for someone who can send and receive some warmth through smiles, laughs, and shared insights. I’m looking for a TRUE FRIEND—a wise person who will exchange experiences and...

I was born in South Florida. It's safe to say my childhood was chaotic and due to choices I made later on, it would be a while before that changed. In 2003 I was sent to death row. Less than a year later my parents would pass. Sadly none of that turned me from the path I was on, as it only gave me more stuff I couldn't deal with. I would continue self-medicating and self-destructing,...

Is there a special someone out there who’s honest, loyal, and open not only friendship but the possibility of love? I believe when two souls connect, location and circumstances can become irrelevant.

For far too long I've been alone, and my hope is to share my life and dreams with a special woman. Could that be you? If so, I shall wait for you to e-mail me by going to
