“A man with dreams needs a woman with vision”

Hi, my name is Matthew and I’m not looking for a friend – I NEED a friend. Living in prison is a strange thing – you live amongst others, but you still feel so alone. I know that there’s more to life than this! Email me on ConnectNetwork.com if you’re searching for a best friend who is real, loving, funny and mature. I would love to find someone who I could be myself with and not have to worry about what others negatively think of me – because they like me for me.

Allow me to share a little bit about myself. I am open minded, considerate, supportive and I have a sincere interest in establishing a long term friendship and life learning experience with a like-minded person. I enjoy writing poems, songs and I can Rap! I have a laid back side where I sit back and listen to music, reading or just watching a movie. I am somebody who likes making new friends, making them laugh and smile and bringing out the best in them by helping them find a side of themselves they never knew they had. That’s the true measure of friendship – it isn’t how you feel about that someone, it’s how that person makes you feel about yourself. It would be nice to meet someone with the same morals, I am definitely looking forward to meeting that special person with like desires to share and to confide with and most of all to grow with.

It is also my hope that it is possible to establish an open and loyal friendship with an emotionally receptive person who is nonjudgmental and not afraid to be honest with themselves.

Still, I want – more than anything – to meet a woman who notices me, who challenges me mentally and helps bring out the best version of me.

My favorite quote comes from #MachineGunKelly:

“If you can’t take me at my worst, then you don’t deserve me at my best”.

So if you would like to know more about me, there is much more…
