My name is Ilya Zinov and I am 30 years old. I hope by posting this profile I might find someone humble enough to understand my circumstance and the struggle I face on a daily basis. I've done almost 5 years now in prison.
A lot has changed since my incarceration; many people I thought would be there for me through my hard times haven't. The realization that I obviously surrounded myself with the wrong people was tough but the loneliness that has come along with it has been a struggle on its own. Spending all of this time alone has taught me how to appreciate all of the seemingly simple things in life that most people who are free take for granted. I try to do the best I can alone through my situation but just having someone in the outside world to talk to or communicate my days and be involved in theirs would bring a whole new dynamic of real life that seems so out of reach.
So, this is a small peek into my feeling. As a person I am an honest, loving, loyal friend that loves life and tries to make the best of any situation with my sense of humor and positive outlook on life. I've always tried to see the best in people which so far has failed me, but I am not done trying. I am reaching out in hopes of finding a loyal friend. I appreciate anyone who takes the time to read this. I'd hope to hear from you.
With love and respect,
