I'm an athlete, an artist, and I'm constantly working to further my education. I've been a carpenter most of my life. I enjoy building and creating with my own hands.

Hello there,

I am walking by faith, not by sight. If there are any beautiful women I would be more than happy to chat by phone or mail and to be friends.

My name is Jeremy. I am 32 years old and was raised by a good family. I got out of church and into the streets. I now realize that is not the lifestyle I want to live.

I'm just a good man seeking good conversation and whatever it leads to is fine with me, so long as it is all good. 

No negative vibes. Positive energy only. The picture is before I shaved my head bald( still handsome though).

Well, hello there! My name is Erin and I’m seeking new friends.

I’m kind-hearted, fun-loving, adventurous (shocker - given my current situation), with a great sense of humor. My interests include school and job opportunities. I enjoy long walks, but not too long because I can’t go past the gate. I’m told my best feature is my smile but I say it depends on what you’re looking at.


Hi, I'm Larry. I'm from Central Pennsylvania.

I'm interested in meeting new people and am just looking for someone to talk to to help pass time.

I'm interested in the stock market and investing, the outdoors, and Penn State football.

Feel free to email me on jpay or write me a letter
