I can’t begin to explain how difficult this struggle has been for me over the past 10 years. All I can do is hope that a part of me in these words can cling on to you and inspire you to try something different, something that can start completely from the bottom and become something beautiful with time and patience. One bad decision I made when I was 17, 10 years ago, led me to this moment today in my life and as I write you these words I’m hoping to find something real, something that’s built on true and real conversation. I’m not proud of who I was back then, but I’m also not ashamed because being him made me the man I am today. Experiencing this whole lifestyle has opened my mind and my eyes to a totally different world that I am anxious to share with someone.

I’m 27 with a lot of life and I’m hoping this experience can help me find a real friendship, someone who can understand me and accept me for me because at the end of the day, I’m still human, I still have feelings. I still have goals and dreams to become something in this world. I really don’t know how to be the hypnotizing kind of guy with words, lying to be something or someone I’m not. You’ll always get the real. I’ve been incarcerated since I was 17 and to be completely honest, all of this is new to me. I really don’t know what to expect from this, all I can do is hope that you can feel and understand that this struggle is real and that everyone needs that one who just gets you. I’m hoping to meet someone who’s different, loving, caring, honest and has an open mind that can hear me and my story and understand because we all have a story that defines us and inspires others.

I’m fun, funny, smart, wise, compassionate, family orientated and the most important I’m a good listener. I can hold a meaningful conversation. I’ve dedicated my time wisely. I’ve learned to love, care, cherish friendships and to value ones of no conscious because we all have flaws. I have a big heart that has been longing to explode its love and emotions into someone who’s invested. I haven’t experienced an unconditional love, the one that motivates you, I’m not trying to be a distraction in your life and I’m sure once you get to know me, you’ll see how fun and exciting knowing me is. I just need someone to believe in me and want to build something that can become special with time and patience. I’m sure this journey will explode and become something we’ll appreciate with no regrets. So until next time I hope to hear from you soon. God bless and be safe.
