Hello miss Dylan.    I'm 28 years old.  I have been incarcerated for 6 years.  I’m a person that believes in constant improvement and I'm always trying to reach the next level in my life despite my current situation.  I'm a firm believer in being in tune with myself mind, body, and soul!   I have made plenty of strides forward in my life....



My name is Shady Abdallah, I know different right? Face doesn't fit the name, but it's definitely mine. So I decided to try this site simply because while in the process of rebuilding who I am as a person, the people I associate with must be different as well. So I figured since I'll be coming home next year, maybe it's time to start meeting new people.

In the times we...

Hello there.

I’m Erol, but my friends call me “E” so please do. I’m 41 years old. I’m fun, outgoing, and enjoy a good laugh.

I’m seeking a new friend in life and maybe from somewhere I’ve never been. I’ve got less than three years left, and I’m just seeing where this might go. Feel free to ask me anything you would like.

Thanks for even considering writing me. I love meeting and learning about other’s lifestyles, cultures, hobbies, opinions, languages, etc. I typically always let my actions and others define/describe me, so writing a “bio” on myself is a bit odd. I imagine this ad makes me seem lonely and desperate, and I can't say I'm not. LOL

I have tons of passions and hobbies. To name...

To my future wife,

Being the music lover that I am, I often relate things with music. If I had to pick a song that embodies my mood lately, then I’d pick Miki Howard’s “Come Share My Love”, or Donell Jones “I Hope It’s You”.

I am so ready for love, for marriage, for you.

As my wife, I need you to sharpen me just as Proverbs 27:17, speaks of iron sharpening iron. I...

Let me tell you a few things about myself: I love to watch and play any sport except golf, as well as meeting and getting to know new people, places, and things. Family is everything, without that you can’t build or start a foundation. I would like to further my education upon my release, as well to travel the world.

Since I’ve been incarcerated, I’ve learned a lot about myself and who...

Hi, my name is Keith and I’m seeking a kind hearted, female friend to rotate with, someone I can be myself with who won’t judge me for the mistakes I’ve made in the past.

I’m looking for a snail mail companion who’s honest, loyal, enjoys writing, is open minded and can help put a smile back into this lonely heart. I’ve been locked away 200 miles south and 23 years away from family and loved ones have finally taken its toll. Really, I’m a simple man with simple needs and a little bit of love is one of them. I’m still optimistic, still have a good heart and still...

I'm new to this, so a little about me: I am single, looking for nothing particular, but would love to make new friends. I'm a believer in love and would love to find it, but not expecting it. I am a down to earth, nonjudgmental, very silly, love to laugh, type of guy. I would love it if you possessed these same qualities.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
