New to this Forum

Hello everybody, I am new to this forum and very excited to be a part of this community. I have been browsing the forum for about a week, and just today got my profile activated.

I want to share a little bit about myself. I am a female from Colorado. I had a past relationship with a man who was incarcerated for the majpr part of our relationship. I remember how lonely he would get and how hearing from me was the best part of his day. I am not looking for a relationship or a romance, I am just looking to extend my friendship to those in need. Its such a great feeling to know that you make a difference in somebodies life.

I wanted to join the forum for support and knowledge. I have told a few of my friends about wanting to write to inmates and have gotten negative feedback about it. I know many of you have gone through the same thing, and I'm sure you'll understand my decisions and point of view much better. Thank you for reading this!

P.S. I sent out a couple of intros using the WAP email service. I didn't realize that it would be mailed third party, and that I probably shouldn't have mentioned the site in the letter. Will this delay the letter getting to them?

Hey! :) I'm a female from Florida and although I just barely joined the forum, I've been a pen pal for a long time. I started out of curiosity - I think I saw something about pen pals on an episode of Law and Order and I was like let me get one. Lol. But most of the time it's fine to mention the site - there's only a couple of states where you want to really be careful with that. Florida is one. For Florida, say something like "I heard you were wanting to correspond and make new friends..." They'll know. Also, if you have aspirations of visiting your pp (I always did) it's better not to say too much about the site when communicating via jpay (assuming they have jpay); the guards screen those and when it comes time to put in your visitors application it could get denied. Probably won't, but could. Some states need to always think anyone on the visiting list knew the incarcerated person previous.
