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 hit me up. I’m seeking friendship and conversation from those 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 meat and potatoes, I’m more like bacon on ice cream, which may sound different but is actually awesome. I see each day as an opportunity to get closer to...

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...

Hello, my name is Trevontae and I’ve been incarcerated for 4 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 so...

I appreciate you taking time out of your day to review my profile. I have found myself in a position where I am in need of help, in need of a friend. I guess we have all been there.

My intentions are to find someone who is willing to help better myself as a man, to motivate me to stick to a path in which I will succeed within these walls and beyond. I am looking to...

I see you peeking! I am excited that you found me. I almost got away. Now that I have your attention there is something I would like to mention.

My objective for posting this profile is to meet someone who wants to have a cool conversation, lots of laughs and to learn more about each other. I am seeking a pen-pal to share some thoughts and feelings from time to time. I think it would...

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.

Future focused while enjoying the moments in between. Looking to grow beyond this fence by meeting new friends, sharing time, thoughts, and direction. My dailies consist of work, physical, and mental fitness, legal studies toward reformation and various forms of creativity, but my social life is lacking since I don’t get out much. (smile)

In life we will, at times, find ourselves at a crossroads. I find myself there now. I’m setting up this ad, and I also send out positive energy in hopes of finding someone searching for more than just an existence that passes us by. Unspectacularly and all too quickly. I’m looking for someone who doesn’t allow life’s struggles to diminish their unique spirit. My time on lockdown has had me be...


Why did the ketchup blush? Because he saw the ranch dressing! I hope that you laugh as much as it did me. Hello, I’m Pavel. A little about me. I’m 24 years old. I speak Russian and English and I am not a perfect person at all. I try to be a person of integrity and make the best choices that I can but I am human and I have flaws. I love to smile and laugh and see others do the same. That’s why...

I’m Daquantre! I’m from Portland, OR. I’m young with an old soul, am ambitious, pure-hearted, and try to be open-minded to new things. I love learning, gaining knowledge, and I’m a loyal person, which has its pros and cons. I’ve made mistakes in my past, though I aim to better myself rather than change, and also capitalize on those mistakes, making sure I don’t make them again. During this...

I'm down-to-earth, outgoing, funny with a healthy dose of seriousness, and a tad bit of sarcasm. Age is in the mind so I'm forever young. I enjoy all genres of music, mostly rap and country. Jay-Z, JCole, Kane Brown, Luke Combs. I don't fit in with any specific crowd that enables me to vibe with any crowd. I call myself a third, thug turned nerd so I'm both cool and weird.

I'm very...

My favorite food is Japanese food, it’s so artistic. I also study the language and have a workable comprehension.

I’m Eric, real, self-sufficient, and love to laugh…I believe in being who you are and enjoying life. I like to cruze, convo and go on outings/events. As of now, currently I’m at under a year, so with that I thought it’d be a great time to meet new friends and stay positive through these times…Only focus is to get past this and slow down, be productive and invest in good memories…

I enjoy an active lifestyle, having a good time, and making new friends. I use my time to better myself physically and mentally. I'm young with an ambitious spirit, I have wisdom about me you don't see much in men my age. I'm a bit of a knucklehead that just needs a little direction. I ask you not to paint me with the same brush as other me you may have encountered. I'm an intelligent...

Hey there you,

Do you believe a stranger is only a friend you haven't met yet?   Well I do.   I'm very optimistic in meeting new people and building new friendships that could even blossom into something more.   

I'm interested in trying to find that special someone who shares the same values and morals as me.   I'm non-judgmental,...

I have reached a point in my life to where I am finally comfortable and secure with who I am, and I know what I want.

I have been educated and I have gotten my electrical license, but what I lack is friendship. I want to meet new people and develop new friendship with good people.
