My name is Angelo. If I were to define myself with one word, it would be “Extraordinary,” because I’ve been told by others my life has been filled with moments many have never seen, and the way I reacted to those moments wouldn’t be how most would have.

I put my all into everything I do, even if it’s the smallest of tasks. You get out what you put in, right? I’m a very loyal man, and...

My name is Michael, but my friends call me “Lily”.

My interests include reading fantasy novels and manga, watching sports, drawing, and crafting stuff.

I’ve never had a pen-pal before, so this is all rather new to me. I’m also really shy. So, getting to know someone via writing should work very well for me. I’ve been locked up for several years now, and figured it’d...

I was sitting here thinking of what to write and decided it was the best to speak from the heart.

I lived fast and hard which got me here. I made a few bad choices. Today I spend my time reading and working to better myself every day and do not believe prison has to define who I am. I am on this website honestly because I am tired of being alone for so long and I am...

I’m hoping to meet new friends to help pass the last years of my lengthy 25 year sentence. It is important for me to say that I am not a violent offender. I received a lengthy sentence because of my past, not because I hurt anyone.

Since my sentencing I have come a long way. I am a single father of two grown adult beautiful daughters. I’ve never been married and hope to meet new people...

Do you believe in chance, destiny, or faith? Or what about great minds thinking alike? Or the opposite of different worlds attract each other? Or, what about “always shoot for the moon, so if you miss at least you’ll land among the stars?” Because I believe in all these things. Join me for a moment! Time is precious and unforgiving when it comes to days, months, and years...
