Hmm.. Tall, dark, handsome... very, very rich... okay, okay... lies....

Hi, I’m Brian, a kind, outgoing, humble guy looking for someone open to sharing their life’s experiences with me. I’m 30 years old and have spent the last decade in prison. I fear as the calendars pass I lose myself to this place more and more.

Yo, I'm Nick and I'm 29 years old. I'm into music, tattoos, and art so don't judge a book by its cover because I might be the best book you've ever read.

Just hit me up.
