Anyone have a pp in ISCC?

Hey thought it would be a good idea to share experiences with other people of penpals in the same facility?
My guy is in ISCC, such a great guy! We use jpay to communicate, I'm in Britain so the time difference can be a pain when waiting for emails to arrive but on the whole it's been a pleasant experience.

My boyfriend is actually in ISCC.  How has your experience been?

Thank you so much for replying :) it's very new but great so far, we have a lot in common for sure! So plenty to talk about. Did you meet your boyfriend through the site or were you already together beforehand? X

Most welcome!  We met on the site.  Honestly, neither of us were looking for anything serious, just PP.  I guess fate had something else in mind, lol.  We talk every day and message constantly throughout the day.  My biggest complaint would be JPay!  How long does your PP have left?

Aww that's amazing I love that, I guess when you know you just know. Yeah we're the same we message all day the time difference is a pain but I'm usually wakening when he is going to sleep and then I'll reply to his messages then when he gets up we talk some more. I've found jpay to be not so bad sometimes our messages come in the wrong order and I only just received his morning message from yesterday this morning, but we send so many different ones it can get a little jumbled up. I'm not sure how it works on his ad it says earliest this time next year latest 2024 but he says 6 months to a year depending on different factors so who knows. How long does your boyfriend have left? Are you far from him? I think they are looking at releasing some prisoners early due to the covid outbreak now too though.

That is awesome!  Do you plan to come visit him here in the states?  JPay keeps deleting him from my account and then blocks so I can't buy stamps.  So I have to keep opening new accounts, which is annoying.  I called them yesterday and it took 2 hours to get someone on the phone.  They were no help.  He gets out in January, but maybe sooner.  No, I live in TN.

Yeah it's all a bit crazy. Definitely we have talked about it for when he's released. I think I'd forever regret if I didn't see if all we think is there, is also there in person. Aww that sucks hopefully it's a temporary thing! So they are both roughly around the same time give or take a few weeks. When did you both start talking?

We started talking towards the end of January.  What about you?  What's your guys name if you don't mind me asking?  That's how I feel about mine.  Like we have to know if this can work outside of him being in prison.  He has honestly become my best friend, which is huge.

It's only been a couple of weeks so still very new. I think with the limitations its a bit more intense and can really get to know someone on a different level. Yeah exactly I find myself waiting by the phone and get stupid happy when I see a notification :) exactly i can imagine wed have a lot of fun together in person. It is still super new but I'm looking forward to seeing how things progress. His initial is N.S ... if you'd like to give me your email I will email you we can talk a bit more? Would be nice to talk to someone in a similar situation.

For sure!  Only 2 of my friends know he is in prison, everyone else, including my parents have no idea.  Which, I'm not ashamed of it, but he doesn't want to be judged and I completely get that.  You can email me at purplechi0126 [at] gmail [dot] com.  I look forward to talking to you!!

Hi! I know this thread is a month old, but I just came across it. My PP isn't in ISCC, but he is in ISCI. I just wanted to comment as I like how we are all in the same sort of situation! We only started speaking about 2 weeks ago, but the connection we have developed is like nothing I've had before. We just get on so well and we're falling for each other. I really worry about what other people may think, like my parents and friends. Has that been a problem for you both? And lunarlol31, I'm in the UK too! The time difference is a bit of a pain isn't it!

That is awesome about your penpals!  Are they both at ISCC?  Same Blocks or different ones?

About 4 months now! Not long, but it's been pretty epic.
