My name’s Jason, and I’m hoping to meet new people and build genuine friendships. I’m also hoping to reconnect with friends from the past. I love anything art. My hobbies are beading, drawing, crocheting, and writing, but right now I’m close to graduating and receiving two associate degrees, so I guess learning’s a new hobby.

The picture of me with the dog is from when I...

Well, well, I see you spend your time looking for diamonds in the rough. I can dig that. To be truthful, I was reluctant to do this because I’m not used to meeting people in this manner but I figured starting off at a disadvantage beats not making an attempt. What type of guy am I? For starters, I used to be a wild boy but that was just a phase. It turns out I’m naturally charismatic, lively...


Hi I'm P.J.

I'm hoping to find a female to talk to and share laughs with. It can get pretty boring around here and could really use a friend.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Being in an all male prison for years has made me come to realize the value of female companionship. I keep my circle of friends small and can seem introverted at times, but in trying to get out of my shell, I'm hoping to find someone to share stories, emotions, and laugh with.

My friends describe me as easy-going, humorous, intelligent, and extremely loyal. I love reading (fantasy and...

Hello world, my name is Christopher but I go by Chris or Ohio; my stomping grounds are in Toledo. I was born in North Carolina but moved to Toledo but moved when I was about 3. I have been locked up for 13 years now and this isolation has really made me take a serious look at myself and think about what I want out of life.

I've grown a lot over the years and in doing so I realize that...

I'm like your favorite assortment of trail mix. To the people I call family and friends, I go by Tre.

I'm currently serving a year and fighting 2 other charges for felony possession of a firearm and misdemeanor assault. These days people tend to treat inmates like they're the scum of the earth instead of people that just made a mistake and you become insignificant to people that you...


Hi, I'm seeking to connect with positive, outgoing people who have a good outlook on life. I am also looking for a positive group of people who are willing to help me with my re-entry back into society, so I can be successful. I'm a highly social person who enjoys listening to and learning from peoples' life stories.

I've made many blunders in life (none of which I'm proud of), and...


Hey, I made this profile to meet new people. I’m tired of talking to the same guys every single day that have no intention of bettering themselves. I’m not perfect, and I know everybody in here doesn’t want this type of lifestyle forever, but I’m trying to kick it with somebody new with good vibes. Someone that isn’t trying to hold me back and currently isn’t in prison, haha.

I only...

Nice guy looking for somebody to talk to. 

I am a great listener and am always down to vent if needed. Just be as real with me as I am with you. That's why I am here!

Looking for a great convo, build up the bag, and secure it with passion.

I love meeting people from all walks of life.  Being outgoing and nonjudgmental are my best qualities. 

I'm really looking forward to going home next year.  I'm seeking friendship that will help me make that transition smoother.  One can never have too many friends.

If you are interested, let me know.  I am sure there will be a lot of laughs in our...

Welcome to my profile! If you clicked on me hoping to find a down to earth, funny, genuine friend - you're in luck! I recently met with the parole board for the first time and was given a short deferment of 12 months. My hope is to make some new friends during this next year and hopefully be a light in their lives.

I'm an open book really and enjoy learning new things....


I’ve never tried to meet women through letters before, but hey, I’m a social person stuck in a very antisocial place and I’m sick of being surrounded by nothing but dudes, so I figured I’d give this a try.

I am an easy-going man, laid-back, and sort of a hippie. I’m a huge weed activist/advocate, and always will be. In the world, I bartended, and I plan on resuming that when I’m...
