I’m usually not one to put myself out there like this, especially due to the circumstance, and this unfortunate period in my life. But, after hearing so many good things from friends who correspond through the site, and me loving to write and meet new people, I thought I’d give it a shot and see where it would take me.

As I try and make the best out of my situation, I’ve learned in...

I am a healthy, strong, very active 60 year old man. I’ve never smoked or done drugs. I’m incarcerated because I broke the law. I deserve to be here. I made a poor decision and make no excuses. I own it. However, I do believe in second chances.

Someone awaits you on the other side of life's door. Someone you never met before. Someone charming and sweet. Your knight and shining armor here to sweep you off your feet.

Allow me to introduce you to that someone. Hi my name is Kirk Grable, I was born in Brooklyn, NY to God fearing parents. My father is a Pastor, so yes I am a preachers kid. I guess you can call me the black sheep...



I’ve been in prison for nine long years, and I have thirteen years until my release. I’m incarcerated because I made a terrible decision to drive drunk after attending a customer appreciation event sponsored by my employer. At approximately 6pm that evening, the roads were wet. I shifted gears and lost control going over the curb and onto the sidewalk, hitting two teenage girls...

I am trying to be more outgoing and social. I will respond to anyone who takes the time to write. Look forward to hearing from you!

My name is Lou. I’ve never been on a website like this before, but I figured I’d check it out and see what’s going on out there in the free world. I’ve heard a lot of good things, so I figured I’d try it. A little bit about me: I was born and raised in the Bronx but moved to Alaska in 2015 to be closer to family. I’m...

Hello. I'm hoping to find some pen friends to converse with on the outside to help pass the hours and days. I would prefer to write to female penpals as I am straight. I am just looking to connect with someone on a friendship level.

I never thought I’d be the guy doing this. The guy searching for companionship on a pen-pal website while serving time in a state prison. Yet, here I am. Surprisingly, seven years into my prison sentence, I’m still holding onto the hope that humanity in its entirety isn’t as flawed as I’ve recently been led to believe in this race, only two things really matter. Number one is your release date...

I personally think it’s extremely important to maintain strong, healthy relationships within the outside world while you’re “away”. Communication with friends, family, and overall positive individuals can do a lot for a person’s self-esteem and confidence, and allows them to feel like they are still involved and still belong. It also motivates me to put in the effort to make sure the...

Hi, my name is Kenny. I’ve got two years left. I’m looking for somebody to write. Everybody gets letters at least once a week. Me, I get one every couple of months. I’m from Deering, a small village. I was raised by my grandmother who, along with my grandfather, adopted me. He passed in 2007 of cancer. God bless him. They were the best parents. I love them a lot. I’ve moved on, but I’ve...


I often thought websites like this weren't for me, but I always wondered who I'd meet. So here it goes, and here is my picture.

I'm in Alaska, fighting a federal drug charge. My release date is unknown at the moment, but odds are I'll be in federal prison for about seven years.

I am a single Dad, 38, but I still feel like I'm 25. I worked as a carpenter and commercial...

Before I begin, I want to make it clear that I'm not here looking for romance or any other kind of amorous connection. I won't bore you with the details that forged such an adamant resolve; instead, I'll just say that a recent experience, though no one's fault but the ill-fate of inauspicious stars, and my own idiotic idealism, left me with no desire for anything other than...
