Hello! Our life paths are crossing right now and I find unlikely events like this amazing and acknowledge worthy. One eastern monk liked to say everything was perfect, that our past prepared us for our life now. I try to remember this when the road is bumpy. Not so easy during…(smile) but...

I’ve been trying to meet new people but being incarcerated makes it so hard to find anyone who would give me the time. It sucks, but I understand. I hope that putting myself on this website it can increase my chances to find someone who is open minded enough to not see my situation as a deal breaker? I’m a good man who made mistakes as a kid and hopefully I can find someone to...


To tell you a bit about my crime, I’m in prison for shooting in public. A man began a fight with me, and he’s entrusted with a gun! I disarmed the man and opened fire at an empty wall, I just wanted to separate the bullets from the gun, and the clip release had a dual mechanism I wasn’t aware of. I was arrested for attempted murder and took a plea bargain for shooting in public with gross...

A little about myself... I am a motivated, hard-working, and business-minded individual that has come to a roadblock in my life and is on the road to better myself and become successful in all aspects of life. The way I look at life is, it's not how many times you win, but how you recover and learn from your failures and mistakes that count.

Before I came to this minor setback in life...

Hello out there! This is as close as I get to social networking! I hope you're well. I'm a big-time reader, writer, a geek, a goof, a freak, and a workout buff, and more, who is looking to make new friends and talk to interesting people who enjoy the simple pleasures in life, like music, film, the smell of the forest, traveling, art, and trying new things.

But if you're passionate...

I hope this finds you well during difficult times. Usually, I’m not lacking in words to say, but, like leaving a voicemail on the phone...suddenly the words escape me.

Hello pen-pal world.
