I am an innocent prisoner who has been on death row without my family for over 16 years. I have no support from them. I have found great friends, some who are even family, they have supported me through my ordeals on Texas death row.

I am writing this ad in search of support. I have a campaign set up but do not have anyone to help me run my website, making my newsletter, networking...



I hope this finds you well during difficult times. Usually, I’m not lacking in words to say, but, like leaving a voicemail on the phone...suddenly the words escape me.

After 27 years, I’ve forgotten what sand or grass feels like on my bare feet. The sound of the wind blowing...

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...

What’s up future friends?

My name is Noel Adrian Doorbal and if my name sounds familiar it’s because a major Hollywood movie was made about me. The world-famous director Michael Bay, the maker of the “Transformers” movie franchise released in April 2013 the international blockbuster movie starring A-list actors Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Anthony Mackie. The name of...

Dear Friend,

I don’t know who you are, where you are, what gender you are, what nationality you are – none of these insignificant details. I only know you are there – someplace beyond the walls of this tiny cell filled with prison sounds and my warm humanity.

Somewhere on this lovely blue and green world of ours, you are living your quiet, lively life – contributing to the...

I have resided on death row since I was 19 years old. The past 17 years have been an emotional rollercoaster. Facing death when life was just starting, to being a week away from execution in 2017. The road has been rough, but I kept on truckin.

There have been films done on my case and sites dedicated to me. You can learn more about me at and www....

Hi, I’m Eric. I’m looking to find new friendships, as well as people interested in my cause. Superficial aspects like looks, age (over 18), etc, are things I’m not concerned with. It’s what is in a person’s heart that matters. I wish to find good-natured people who are sincere. I’m not looking for drama.

A little about me. On the streets I was a Union Carpenter, and I also did custom...

Many people call this place where I reside "The Concrete Jungle". It's like a jungle most days, and on others, it's like a circus. On a Tuesday, somebody could be taking a flight for life "Helicopter Ride to the Hospital" for getting stabbed. On a Wednesday, the police can be dealing with a man who had set everything in his cell on fire, making the whole pod smoky like lava! Hot...

Life Without You

My mind journeys back in time, as I lay flat on my back, transposed in thought with eyes closed, wearing deafeningly loud headphones, blaring vintage oldies but goodies, synonymous of the times a 16-year-old version of me was ever so deeply young---and in love. As slowly I float high above, gazing down upon the impeccable manicured lawns, prestigious rose gardens...

Hello...So, yes, my situation is far from pleasant, but, through it all, I have to live in the house I built. This experience has enabled me to see the world in a wider perspective, which has, in turn, helped me to grow and develop on a personal level.

With his expanded outlook, I would like to meet people who have themselves have been taken advantage of all the world has to offer. I...

Looking for Companionship/Friendship

I’ve had the bad boy mentality for most of my life but I’m reformed…or at the least, I’m on the road to a softer version (smile)! I’ve been locked up a long time and have never done the pen pal thing. Some days are dark and heavy and I’ve grown lonely and tired of the months and years of solitude.

Of course I like sports and I’m a voracious...

With death on my heels I’m focused solely on getting out of prison. To accomplish this I need an army, and inside my ranks I will need someone who is able to run/create websites and has legal training (be it criminal trial experience, Death Penalty experience, Civil Law or paralegal experience). I will need someone who has experience creating documentaries. Even if you know a friend who you...

Hi friends, my name is Rodney. I am looking for friendship while I start this journey of trying to save my life and winning my freedom back. Obviously I am at a low point in my life but I have to look forward not backwards. I can only look to the future. That future can only begin by finding good people and good friends who are interested in me and my journey.

I love to smile. I am...

Hello Future Pen Pal,

I’m the one in billions that you’re looking for. Sincere Renaissance man seeking a fruitful friendship with a woman who is also seeking a fruitful friendship beginning with pen-pal correspondence.

The sands of time records everyone's journey and so often paths cross and people walk awhile together, along the same roads through life. But, make no mistake, life is lived within the journey, not the destination. So having said that, I am looking to walk awhile or maybe an entire lifetime with you… the reader. I'm looking for nothing more than what you are willing to share as a true friend...

I've been incarcerated for almost 23 years now and I am tired of the monotony of it and the limits of my life.  I'm loyal, honest and I say it how it is. I hate bullshit and bullies.

I'm an artist - stippling with pen and ink. It's how I spend most of my time. As I draw I listen to my CDs - I love music too.  When I'm not drawing I like to work out and keep fit....

I love to laugh, listen to music, read and learn about other cultures.  I'm a Leo and fit my Zodiac sign perfectly, meaning that I'm very passionate about the things I get into.  I'm attentive, protective, and curious.  I believe that no...



I’m Beau. I'm a proud member of the LGBTQ community. I'm writing from death row in Nevada looking to form real connections and friendships. I'm a very open and honest person who tries to find the positive in life and deal with the negative head on. It's not always easy of course, but having loving and supportive people in your corner makes it so much better.

Since 2007 I have been a member of the Death Row society….a proud tradition among many, I myself not included.   As time moves on, so do friends and family, a natural progression among my fellow man, understandable to a degree.

So my hope today is to obtain new friends, those who are open minded, kind, sincere, and enlightened enough to know things are not as always as they...

I’m a Death Row inmate here and my contact with the outside world is minimal. My search for true friendship and moral support has led me to this website where I call upon the sincere mind to hear my plaintive call for friendship.
