Hey everyone,

My name is Chris and it's nice to meet you.   First and foremost I've been in and out of prison since I was 14 years old, being certified as an adult.   I really haven't had the chance to experience and value my life due to being swayed into the direction of negativity.   Over a duration of time I've been able to accept responsibility for my...

In our hearts, we know when what we have has ran its course. The universe, responding to frequencies of our deepest thoughts and strongest feelings at times will move circumstances, events, and even people in our lives to materialize those thoughts of what we truly desire. So, if you've found yourself perusing profiles looking for a friend, or a person you feel may understand you more than the...

Hi there! Are you tired of the same old lies or guys who are lacking honesty, sincerity and respect? Who don’t shower you with attention, affection and appreciation?

Well here are some things you will get from me. Eyes you can look into and trust, a helping hand, a heart that understands. And don’t judge a supporting shoulder, a prompt reply to all your letters and time devoted to you...


Nothing ventured, nothing gained
We seek a mystery unexplained
The magic of a stranger’s laugh
As friendship finds its missing half
Across the many miles and years
Together, friends defy their fears
There’s purity and beauty there
Where two lone souls become a pair
I’d cherish such a priceless find
A friend who keeps me in her mind



My name is Sethen Dyerson. I am 6’, 220 pounds, Norse and Lakota Sioux. Looking for some positive friends. I am happy and high energy and love music and exercise.

Thank you for taking the time to read my introduction.

I'm in search of a friendship, something just as essential as oxygen is to human nature. I'm interested in corresponding with a mutual minded individual. Height, weight, and race are superficial to me. I just need a true friend to enjoy the precious treasures of a loving heart and soul. That's the unique mystery untold.

I’m single and looking for singles to help pass my time away. Honestly, I’m not looking for love, just the opposite. Friends are cool but if it gets deeper than that, maybe we can see where it goes. I’m fun and easygoing, all in all...

I've always been an outgoing person and lived at a faster pace than others, up until I got myself into this situation.   I'm thankful it happened because it caused me to really take a look into my life and understand I need to make some changes in my routine.   I'm not proud of where I'm at, but the hardships I've endured helped define the man I am today.   I have...
