Holloway, Nathan
Sterling, CO | 34 | Straight
Caucasian | Spiritual

I am a good person who has made some bad choices.  I am looking for someone to correspond with for the remainder of my sentence.  I would describe myself as laid back but fun to be around.  I enjoy reading, traveling, and learning new things.  I would like to find someone who loves to write and may possibly be interested in speaking on the phone from time to time.

I have been working on myself and am interested in someone who can help keep me positive in a place with so many reasons to be negative. If you find tall men with blue eyes and a gregarious personality attractive, send me a letter about yourself.

Donnell, Raphael
Jesup, GA | 41 | Straight
African American | Protestant

Salutations! Time and pleasure gives me the grand opportunity to make your acquaintance.  I was born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas. I'm interested in learning about other ways of life, culture, interest, goals, ideologies and more! I enjoy the company of a person I can share intellectual visions with. I am a firm believer that great relationships are built on the solid foundation of friendship.

I am a man of confidence, integrity, loyalty, compassion and humbleness. I have a good sense of humor and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. It is my pleasure to offer a golden opportunity to an open friendship and in doing so I fully acknowledge the fact that opportunities to friendship do not come often and are rarely embraced. I'm looking to friend anyone who is spiritually centered, loyal, compassionate, business minded and understanding.

I pray what's conveyed to you in this profile is worthy of your companionship.

Carter, Allen
Newton, NC | 43 | Straight
African American | N/A

Hello, my name is Allen Carter and I'm from Fayetteville North Carolina. I enjoy working out and music. I get the most out of making people happy. Despite my predicament I remain humble and I surround myself with positive individuals. I keep a positive outlook on life and remain optimistic.

We only live once, so I believe it's important to maximize the opportunities and experiences that life has to offer, one of the most important being that of genuine friendship.

I'm currently incarcerated and realize my reality for what it is. I do my best to mentally escape this bleak environment through positive thinking. However, I would like to expand my little world by learning about as many different cultures, lifestyles, and perspectives, as possible, including yours. I'm open minded and have no specific expectations.

Although I hope to make great friends, learn, and be an ear when needed, I'm also open to sharing my experience and give a true insiders perspective on prison life.

Those that enter my life, I would only wish you happiness…and until we officially meet, I look forward to hearing from you.

Griego, Kirk
Adelanto, CA | 32 | Straight
Hispanic | Christian

Hi, my name is Kirk Griego, and my intentions in using this pen pal platform is to find authentic companionship. As I open a new chapter in my life, I am seeking to connect with someone that is like-minded, in the sense that we can relate in many ways and maintain quality conversations. I consider myself to be a spiritual person and very oriented towards my studies in that regard. My sense of humor is on point, and I take pride in being able to make my loved ones laugh. I enjoy silliness as well as seriousness, and do my best to maintain a positive attitude through it all.

I thoroughly enjoy learning new things and applying them in the real world. I look forward to meeting new people and forming new friendships. I have been told that I am outgoing and charismatic, and a true people's person. As much as I can carry a conversation, I focus on intent-full listening and not just waiting to respond. My hope is to make a connection with someone who is open minded and offers compassion, understanding, and a willingness to be real and transparent about who they are. I will always offer the same in return.

That's all for now, reach out to me if you'd like to get to know me more!

Rump, Jacob
Coalinga, CA | 41 | Straight
Caucasian | Non-denominational

Hello out there...I guess I should begin by introducing myself. My name is Jacob Rump, but everyone calls me Jake. I am 41, 5'11", and 195 pounds. I have a very healthy sense of humor, a very positive attitude, an inquisitive mind, and a rapacious appetite for useless facts--which allows me to maintain my jeopardy "king" status.

I have been incarcerated now for just over fifteen years, but it seems like life is moving by way too fast--yeah, there is irony in that for sure. The things I enjoy and value most in life are family and friends. Spending as much time as possible with them is the fuel that keeps my spirit happy and hopeful.

I enjoy working. I recycle all the plastic, cardboard, and metal for the facility. I also enjoy reading books, cooking, exercising, and helping other inmates. I am a tutor for the Voluntary Education Program helping people prepare for their GED, and twice a week I assist Lifers in developing insight.

I am hoping to find friendship and people to enjoy the shared gift of laughter along with open and honest conversations about any and all topics. I am a good listener with an open mind and I promise to reply promptly and to never bore you.

Okay, now that the awkward introduction is out of the way, I hope you are interested and that sometime soon my name will get called with a letter from you.

Bazzi, Nabil
Baraga, MI | 26 | Straight
Caucasian | N/A

Hello everyone, my name is Nabil. I am on here seeking friendship. I am a cool, laid back guy. I am down to earth, very understanding, and very easy to communicate with. I like to say I am very outgoing.

Some of the things I like to do is to work out, listen to music, watch movies and shows, and read good books, to pass my time. I like country, hip hop and R&B music. I am into action, horror, and gangster flicks. I am into urban and different educational books that give me the tools to learn new things about life.

I am very curious about the future, our galaxy, our world, and nature. I am open to learning new things and to meet new and positive people that are into the same. I speak another language fluently, which is Lebanese.

I am a proud father of a 6-year-old boy. My plan when I come home is to spend most of my time with him and to continue to work at my brother’s car shop and own my own one day.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I've provided a picture of me from a few months ago. I hope to hear from you soon. You can write me on or write me by mail using the contact information below.

Wilson, Steven
Phoenix, AZ | 40 | Straight
Caucasian | Methodist

Hello, Steve here!!! Let's just say that I am making good out of a not so great situation. Currently I reside in the Arizona DOC, where I am serving a remaining sentence, expiring 07/2018. What landed me here, I was given 2.5 years for a DUI, but do not worry, no one was hurt and no damage was done.

Still not to be taken lightly, my cavalier demeanor does not reflect my inner concern for what could have been. My time here is spent furthering my education in the field of mental/behavior health. This I am most passionate about. I intend to use personal and professional knowledge to help those who struggle with such trials and tribulations. I believe no one should be shackled by their addictions and should be given the tools to succeed.

My likes include: animals (Shelby in pix), sports (go Gators), long walks in the yard, ha-ha, cooking and eating, meditation, reading James Patterson, family (Father, Grandfather and of course Mom), and kids. What about you and your likes?

So, on a final note, riddle me this: name a city that is closer to six other capitals other than its own?


Please include a return address on your envelope.

Bosse, Joshua
Dilley, TX | N/A | Straight
Caucasian | Christian

Hey, my name is Josh. As of now I’m living in an oven, aka prison, in South Texas. Yes, it’s as awful as you can imagine. However, we keep ourselves entertained, from cooking “exotic” foods made from our canteen purchases to ordering the Kaitlin Jenner bio for an unsuspecting friend…just a few of the ways to make fun out of a bad situation.

I work out and read as much as I can to maintain mental strength, emotional balance, and physical fitness. This place has given me time for reflection and I’m looking forward to growing into the next chapter of my life when I leave. I have a great family that supports me, but it would be awesome to have correspondence that’s not my mom, aunt, sisters, and brother, even though I love them dearly, it would be nice to hear about stuff that doesn’t involve prison life and them!! LoL!!

I truly love to meet new people and have never met a stranger.  I’m looking for someone with a good spirit who wants to get to know someone who shares the same qualities, who wants to exchange life experiences, and who enjoys a good laugh.

Hello New Friend,

My name is Jeff. I'm here to start a new chapter in my life. To leave my past behind. I'm looking for a female friend that can stimulate and intrigue my mind and I'd like to do the same exchange.

I'm very outgoing and like to discover new things and open to new ideas. I'm a very spiritual person, I'm also a great listener and easy to talk to. I'm not judgmental and I'm willing to grow with someone. I believe in divine faith and what is meant to be, will happen. I like to consider myself an interesting individual with a great sense of humor. I have lots of great qualities about me, but you'll have to reach out to find out, so until then...

Stay blessed and hope to hear from you soon.

Ball, Amanda
Dayton, TX | 26 | Straight
Caucasian | Christian

My name is Amanda Bre’Anne Ball but I go by “Bre”.  If I could only use one word to describe me it would be ‘open-minded’.  I’m very interested in understanding differences in people and things.  I’m a very honest but humble and respectable woman and appreciates blunt honesty.

I have so many goals.  My education, parenting and spiritual growth being the most important.  I have 4 children who are my whole heart and my motivation.  I have been incarcerated since January, 2016 and am serving a 12 year sentence.  I no longer have any contact with any family or friends. It’s scary and quite devastating to be on my own.

I have been blessed with a very special person who helps me and gifted me with this opportunity of joining, and hope to converse with someone that can help my time go by more enjoyable.  I’m looking forward to meeting new and interesting people, and would appreciate a pen-pal that will take all of this seriously and be respectful, and if he/she decides to no longer correspond, to please tell me instead of just disappearing.  I’m a big girl and, like I earlier mentioned, appreciate blunt honesty.

I hope and am very excited to hear from someone soon.  Thank you for checking me out!!

Slater, Sandra
Chowchilla, CA | 58 | Bi-sexual
Caucasian | Spiritual

Hello, my name is Sandra but my friends call me “Blu”. I’m 57 years young and take pride in the way I care for myself; mentally as well as physically. I once read that time can be best described like a crushed, pressed flower which will eventually turn to dust if not nurtured, given water and placed back into the earth to grow. I’ve been in prison since 2005 on a third strike and I’ve decided to reach out in hopes of finding new friends to share stories of their lives as I would also like to share mine.

I’m a Country girl, raised in Bakersfield, California and will always be Country at heart. I love the mountains, the ocean or would love to simply sit in the backyard, listen to some music or embrace the stillness of peace and quiet. I adore all animals, books poetry, playing the guitar and lots of laughter. I’m not religious but I am very spiritual. It would make me very happy to write letters and meet people and I will always answer. So with a hopeful heart and open mind, I wait to hear from you, as I remain Blu…

Alto, GA | 22 | Bi-sexual
Caucasian | Christian


My name is Summer and here is a little bit about me. I am a straight up country girl. I love to watch football, swim, fish, go camping and hiking. I am also a girl though. So I love to get my nails and hair done, go shopping, go to the beach, tan and read books. I am also a very spontaneous person. I like to have fun but am also a laid back and chill person.

While in prison I am taking as many classes I can. I got my G.E.D. and am currently working on getting certified for Auto Body Repair and Paint. I love it, it is something I would consider to do on the outside. When I get released I want to go to college and further my education. I want to better myself for my kids. I also want to say don’t let my charge fool you because my kids are my everything. Well, thank you for looking at my profile and I hope to hear from you.

Hughes, Ashton
Ft. Worth, TX | 28 | Straight
Caucasian | Non-denominational


My name is Ashton Hughes and I am 28 years old. I could have easily been a college graduate had I not made some really bad choices and put myself around such bad people. I have spent most of my 20’s in Federal prison for perjury. I’m currently serving 2 years for probation violation, I get out this year and I am seeking friends that I can trust and will encourage me to follow my goals.

I know there have to be good people out there! All I want is a true friend for once in my life. I value trust and knowledge and want to change my life. I am very anxious to meet someone different from what I’m used to.

Thanks for viewing my profile. I look forward to hearing from you and I can’t wait to write you back!

I have heard you can never have too many friends.

I am looking for one!

Hello, I would like to introduce myself as a strong minded, well rounded, loyal, very honest, but fun too.  I love to laugh.  Laughing is the best therapy.  However, instead of simply having a good time, I get more enjoyment out of making a bad time better, more fun and more enjoyable.

I am a grown woman who knows what she wants.  Some of which is trust, understanding, patience.  Someone who can withstand the storm.  Are you sure of what you want?

You can never have too many friends.  Let’s get to know each other.

Runyan, Heather
Lockhart, TX | 45 | Straight
Caucasian | Non-denominational

Looking for friendship at the moment, since it is difficult losing your freedom.  I want to get to know others since there is more time on my hands now.  I used to work hard and would go out drinking, but that is now the bane of my predicament.  I would like to meet new people, share new ideas, and interests, since there is plenty of time to ponder about my life choices.  I have never done drugs, or had issues with anything, with the exception of alcohol.

I would like to meet someone also with interesting ideas and someone to speak to about so many different things.  I have always been fascinated about different cultures and how others have lived.  I would like to have someone write me about those experiences.
