A couple of my favorite shows are Black Butler, Death Note and Soul Eater. I had a troubled childhood but I tend to keep it bottled in. I’ve been locked up since I was 17, I was a dumb and stupid reckless...

Is hope worth it? Is faith for real? Is fate inevitable?

When situations in my life go greatly, I thank God and I pray. When situations don’t go my way, I go astray. I’m looking for a reason to stay! I’m looking for someone – anyone – to tell me that one day everything will be OK.

Look me in my eyes and try to feel my pain, do you know how it feels to be left out in the rain? I...

My name is Mahdi. I’m 6’ tall. I love to play sports, write poems, work out, and to read non-fiction books.

I’m on here to find a true friendship, which is hard to come by, and being in here you see who’s in your corner and who’s not, when you make a mistake.

A little about me is that I’m a man of strong faith. I’m very...

Looking for friends to help pass time, or maybe girlfriend, (if she's out there). It gets kind of lonely in here sometimes. I'm a fun and outgoing type of guy. In the meantime, I will be here waiting for a letter.

Please write me soon.

My name is Ryan and I am 32 years old. I was born and raised in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I am currently locked up for a mistake that I made. We all make mistakes, some more than others, but that does not define me as a man. Yes, I messed up, but I will never give up.

I love to laugh and joke around LOL. I avoid the negative and bad vibes. I'm in here working on myself so...

I am a 41-year-old black male that is currently incarcerated. I would like to meet and interact with grown, open-minded, and non-judgmental women. When I say grown, I don't mean only in age but in mind, body, and soul. I would like to meet that one I can conquer this journey in life with and beyond. We will know when we have found each other because our struggles in life will align...

My name is Erik. I’m at a point in my life where I want to leave my struggles in the past and navigate a new path to success. I believe it starts with a strong support system, and building on a friendship, rather than jumping straight into a companionship. I’m transparent, responsible, and very open-minded. I have...

Hey ladies, where’s the love at?

I’m just here to see if I can pique some lady’s interest if possible.

I like a long conversation, someone who is funny, with a positive energy, that is charismatic, with no lies or secrets. Just be honest and upfront with me and I promise you I will do the same. Now, I don’t know if I’m on here looking for a companion or a woman that can...

Hey U…New Friends,

It’s a blessing that Write A Prisoner has created something unique for “Us” (you and I) to meet, correspond and build special relationships that hopefully last forever!

As for myself, my name is Jerrett but family, loved ones and friends call me YB. Personally, I’m the type of man who will “Show You” better than I can “Tell You”, but considering the...


Hello, thanks for browsing my page!

A little bit about how I got here: I am in prison for an unfathomable crime, one that cannot be forgotten, and difficult to forgive. For this reason, I have spent my time here reconnecting with empathy and sympathy, two things I lost as a child. I would love to meet someone I can share my current journey with as I learn, heal, and love again. The...



I’m on an adventure to meet new people outside of prison. After a long incarceration, building a healthy relationship will help my transition after release. I’m well educated, don’t use drugs or alcohol and have a great sense of humor. I’m always open to laugh, talk and learn new things.

I’m confident I can stay out of prison. My family, while small, is supportive. I...
