Hey, wus up?

I'm just looking for someone to vibe and build with since I'm on my way out the door soon. I know this isn't Love Island so I'm not trying to play games, just hoping I could get a text once in awhile and put a smile on your face.

A few things about me would be that I'm 27 years old, 6’ 1” tall, 250 pounds, and I'm trying to stay fit with sports like basketball or...

From a real, down to earth man, looking to write or email whoever is trying to talk and maybe become friends. I’m 36 years old, a true, loyal, honest, respectful man who loves playing sports, working out in the gym and yard. I also love to listen to all types of music; I try my best to bring joy and smiles to people’s...


Real is felt, not spoken. Most individuals tend to live a fictitious life and lose track of whom they are. I’m a genuine dude who is hilarious and tries to look at everything for what it is. The key to life is evolution and building.

I’m looking for a female who understands loyalty and integrity makes a queen, but drama and belligerence makes something to do when there’s nothing to do...

As a man in his early 40s, I am in search of a deep and meaningful correspondence with substance. Despite being truly in prison, I truly believe that my life still holds great purpose and meaning. I’ve done a great deal of introspective work while exploring my deepest emotions, which has helped me to recognize my own sensitivity as well as that of others.

I consider...


Hello ladies,

First and foremost, allow me to take a second to apologize for the poor choices I’ve made in my life that caused us to be communicating on these terms instead of a vacation, or a real date. I’m the middle child of three; I’m very ambitious, very family-oriented, humorous, understanding, as well as down to earth and modest.

I’m here looking for someone to chat with...

I'm looking forward to meeting new people willing to engage in the same positive conversation and hopefully learn something interesting about one another.

I love to read, music, and working out. If I seem like someone you would like to know and share a conversation with, I would love to hear from you.

Let me start by saying that meeting people this way is new. To me, I prefer traditional ways of meeting people. Yet, it’s said that “A person who has never failed has never tried anything new.” So, here I am. My name is David and I’m incarcerated because I fell victim to the allure and illusion of the fast life. Yet, I live with no regrets. I’m thankful for every obstacle,...
