Life sometimes throws opportunities and challenges your way; you may be ready to receive those experiences with open arms and an open mind or you may fumble. Me myself, sad to say, I fumbled because of how and where I was raised caused me to run off some of the most...

Hey there, my full name is Abrham Acuna. I’m a Hispanic male, 27 years old. I was born and raised in San Diego, California. Unfortunately, I was not doing the right thing and got arrested in Oregon. I’ve learned there’s more in this world than just these prison walls. I’m doing everything in my power to change my life around and do better. So I hope that I can meet positive and influencing...

My name is Ty. I welcome anyone and everyone to reach out. I’m seeking friendship and conversation with people of any culture or background. If you are seeking a connection with a prison gangster type, I’m not for you. Other profiles are like cold French fries, I’m more like bacon on ice cream, which may sound different but is actually awesome. My motto is “work hard, play hard”. I see each...

Hey! My name is John, but I go by Walker.  I am currently serving a 6 year sentence for Second Degree Manslaughter. I may share the details after I get to know you. I love reading and writing, and would be happy to correspond with you. I don't relate to many inmates, so I lack quality conversation. I'm most comfortable in nature, so these walls are suffocating.

I enjoy music...

Hi, I’m Casey. You and I may be miles apart, but we are only one letter apart.

I’m looking to write someone who wants to build a genuine and solid friendship. I have been incarcerated for over 12 years. I have a rough past and made a lot of bad decisions growing up, but have made the changes I needed to become a better man.

I want to look to the future, not the past. Our past...

Respond at your own risk!!

OK, OK I'm just playing and being silly. You have no risk here, but I will warn you, I'm kind of an amazing guy who loves life. People say I'm very positive and am very fun to be around.

Hello, my name is Trevontae and I’ve been incarcerated for 5 1/2 years. I 100% understand that my poor choices have brought me to where I am today, but in time I’d like to think that I truly am on a different type of time. Without my past, I wouldn’t have been able to grow into the man I am today. I feel that I view things...

I’m looking to connect with a special, funny, outgoing person. I’m goofy, but only in the right moments. I have a beautiful daughter who my mom cares for until my return home. Before prison I worked for Nike and was a full-time dad. Every prisoner has a story. Mine is definitely a novel with heartfelt meaning and the battle of addiction.

I’m incarcerated for a mistake I made when I was 18, technically grown but actually fresh out of surviving on my own in the streets or foster homes and group homes. That’s with no proper guidance, I wasn’t grown, just a lost boy with no family that could finally buy his own blunt papers. I wasn’t arrested until 24. By then I’d found myself and was in community college, working and hadn’t...

I’m seeking a friend I can grow with while continuing to strive at being a better me. One I can learn from and one with an ear to listen. I can guarantee you a good friendship and I enjoy healthy and intellectual conversation. I have a pair of ears to listen myself and getting to know new people is something I feel is needed as a step to take in the right direction.

Sensitive guy looking for a pen-pal.


Life translates to time; and how many times have we passed up opportunities out of fear to take a chance and put ourselves out there? How many times have we wasted our time and others? How much more time are we willing to waste?

I am tired of second-guessing myself because of my situation and I will no longer waste time; it’s too valuable. Also, I believe even the most difficult and...
