Longoria, Troy
Baldwin, MI | 32 | Straight
Caucasian | Christian

 Hello there,

I hope these words find all is well. My name is Troy.  I am 32 years old and I just spent the last ten years of my life incarcerated for bad choices I made as a youngster.  Though I ultimately robbed myself of my young adult life I didn't allow it to be a complete waste of my twenties. I spent my incarcerated years being as constructive as I possibly could. Taking full advantage of every opportunity that was available to heighten my abilities physically & mentally, as well as grow spiritually!

Currently I am paroled to "Lake County Residential Re-entry Program", I will reside here until the first week of October, at which point I will be released to an address of my choosing with one year of parole remaining.

I am setting up this profile in hopes of finding assistance with living arrangements, transportation, and potential employment in exchange for labor.  I am a jack of all trades in the construction world as well as basic mechanics. Anything I have yet to experience in the hands on department I assure you I can probably learn overnight.

I'm 32, single, and have zero baggage to drag along or limit my options.  If there's anything I can do for you in exchange for help establishing a foundation for myself, please contact me via postal mail as soon as possible, my time to find a placement is limited, so if you could include a phone number, that would be great and I will place at least one call at no expense to you.

If you are reading this after September 25th you will have to contact me via Facebook, which is simply my name.

Thank you.

Sincerely,  Troy

Greenberg, Albert
Coldwater, MI | 49 | Straight
Caucasian | Christian

Well, hello there! Thanks for stopping here to read my profile. I get 250 words to talk you into writing me, so here goes!

So, about me. My name is Al, and I'm one of the elite dog handlers in the TGIE program. I've been rehabilitating and training racing greyhounds for 6 years now... better yet, they've been training me! Working with the dogs is my passion; this is the most productive and biggest learning experience of my entire life. I'm learning and growing every day, and I want to keep working with rescue dogs in the future.

I spend a lot of time outside, and I like to craft and build things; I'm working on the plans to build my own house once I'm free. I'm working on college courses to further my learning and expand my mind, I keep in close touch with my family, and I like spending time with my friends. I'm a calm, kind, easygoing person with a big heart, I'm a great listener, I love to make people laugh, and I'm always open and honest. I'm hoping to make some new friends through this, but I have no specific expectations. If you like what you've read, send me a message and ask me anything you like! I will answer every message I get.

Bare, Brandon
Coleman, FL | 32 | Straight
Caucasian | N/A

Do you believe in the Law of Attraction?  I’m deep into metaphysics and try to practice daily. Like recently while I was in the shower, all alone, thinking to myself, “I could really use a friend right now”, but that’s when I dropped to soap and realized, “Be careful what you ask for.”  No, that NOT what I mean, Universe!  Ugh, I really need to work on that.  And so here I am seeking the safe alternative to a new friendship.  Hey, you think that’s bad, you should see what I attract on the yard when I’m doing Yoga in the downward dog!

In a place so dead and serious, I need some play in my life.  I want to connect with someone fun and engaging who will appreciate a stimulating friendship and not afraid of something different.  I have an abundance of life inside of me and am searching for a companion to share myself with.  Out of all the things one could be interested in, I’ve learned the hard way that relationships are most important and I intend on finding another who is equally generous, caring, and dependable so that we may bring more lasting value and good times into each other’s lives.

This is only a glimpse of who I am.  So if you’re feeling anything right now, then my super powers are working and I look forward to attracting you into my life!

Caucasian | Non-denominational

Hello, my name is Richard.  I am 5’9” tall, weigh 160 pounds with blonde hair.  Ten years ago I committed my crimes for a woman I loved and thought loved me, but hear I am with 20 years and have 10 years flat and 2 years to go.  All I ever wanted was someone to care and care about.

In my 10 years I have learned to read and write, have my GED, and trying to become a better friend, father, and son.  I have been trying to get on for years but it’s hard when you’re doing time by yourself.

I love to draw and spend most of my time drawing and reading since I work in the prison library. I’m a father of three children but have not seen or heard from them in years. I’m married to the mother of two of my children and will file for divorce when I leave prison.

I’m very open-minded to all things.  I will love and care about anyone that will let me, and I will go out of my way.  I’m seeking friend(s) from any race or religion because I would like to learn about other cultures. I love getting pictures; seeing you and the world you live in.

I look forward to hearing from anyone that would like to write.  Thank you for your time.  After being here for so long, when someone takes to time to write it’s very precious to me.

Your friend,

Hondo, TX | 25 | Straight

Before I start this intro and we take a stroll down my world, I would like to start off by saying thanks to all the people out there who participate in playing a role in helping inmates, like myself, pass our time.  Without you, we would just be some lonely jailbirds!

Hello, participants.  My name’s Brian Vela.  I’m Hispanic and I’m from Edinburg, Texas, better known as Limbo Town.  My friends call me “Milo”, I’m 25 years old with an athletic build with tattoos all over my entire body.  I enjoy having fun indoors and outdoors.  I look forward to new ventures in my life that can alter my life in a positive way.

I’m ain’t gonna sit here and try to paint a perfect picture of myself because then I’d seem like a dream come true, so I’ll just say I’m special in my own way, and if you feel like you want to venture into my life and find out more and need someone to laugh and pass time with, I’ll be here waiting on you to write me.  I’m currently incarcerated for a crime I did a long time ago which I can elaborate more on if you feel like I’m with your wild.

Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to present myself to the world and who knows, we might become true friends, and do believe that you’re someone special is out there somewhere. 

Your soon to be friend,

Mendoza, Eddie
Abilene, TX | 27 | Straight
Hispanic | Christian

First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to look at my page.  I appreciate your interest.

Well, my name is Eddie.  I’m 27 years old and looking for people that I can build a solid friendship with.  I’m an open minded and nonjudgmental person. I accept people for who they are.  I give everybody a chance, and looks, race, religion or bad habits will not stop me from being your friend.    I’m looking for someone who can share their time with me, write on a regular basis, and help me take my mind off of this place while I read your letters and see your life through your words.

I have been in prison for 10 years but I have used my time to grow and learn a lot of useful things; such as wallets, purses, belts and portfolio.  I also work in maintenance and learned how to weld, do plumbing and electronic work.  I believe I can still better myself and hope to find someone who can help me grow and see things differently than I do.

My likes are reading, writing, music, movies, news, having fun, laughing, spending time with friends and family, and a lil bit of romance.  I do not like bullies, negative people or people that say the going to do something and then never does it.

I am single, cute, and open for grabs.

Gayles, Devon
Windsor, NC | 41 | Straight
African American | Other

Dear friend,
My name is De’von.  I joined Write a Prisoner in search of a solid friend base.  To give you a brief look at my heart; I’m honest, loyal, funny, and a good listener.  I’m looking for at least a couple of those same traits in a friend.  I’m a God-fearing man that loves to draw, read, listen to music and sing but what’s crazy is I can’t sing (wink).  I love to laugh and come to believe laughter is healing; it’s soothing to the heart.  Life is too short to be mad or down on life all the time.

I’m a realist; I accept things for what they are and not what I want them to be. I think big and dream even bigger.  I was taught to shoot for the moon, so even if I miss, I would be amongst the stars.

Thank you for listening and looking forward to hearing from you.  God bless.

Passmore, Aaron
Jacksonville, IL | 25 | Straight
African American | Christian

Hey, my name is Aaron.  As you can see I’m a prisoner in Illinois.  I signed up to WriteAPrisoner myself through USPS, so my mugshot is the only picture I have available, so please don’t judge me by the rough-edge demeanor.  I’m a cool, laid back and humble kinda guy and I’m definitely learning from my mistakes.

I work out a lot, red, go to school and watch TV.  Coming to prison has matured me a whole lot and made my thinking straight and narrow.  I’m nothing more than your average down-to-earth guy with a loving and humorous personality.  I’m preparing myself mentally and spiritually so I can be a better person when I get out then I came in.

With all that said, I’m looking for a friend that’s willing to write and correspond with me and maybe share a few laughs.

Thanks for checking out my profile.  My contact info is below.

Green, Shawnette
Lincoln, IL | 40 | Bi-sexual
Multi-racial | Christian

Well, hello world- Shawnette here.  It’s pretty difficult to sum myself up in a few interesting paragraphs but I’ll do my best.

I consider myself a Renaissance woman of sorts.  I sing, dance, and write music.  I watch sports; basketball and football mainly and I’m not afraid to get out there and compete a little as well.  Anybody up for some one-on-one?

I pay attention to politics, current events of our nation, and the state of this world.  I’m open to listen and consider perspectives that differ from my own.  I is my opinion that honest, courageous dialogue is key to healthy progress in any situation.

Prior to incarceration, one of my ventures was apprenticeship in carpentry and concrete form building, and some dabbling in roof work.  I was sworn into the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners Local 141, and I plan to establish myself in real estate development in the future.

I possess a mind for business and an entrepreneurial spirit.  I would love to be introduced to those who have experienced firsthand the necessary steps, pitfalls, and successes associated with business management and ownership.

Which brings me to what I’m looking for; I love to learn and I’m seeking a network of people who have wisdom, knowledge, and experience to offer.  TEACH ME ALL YOU KNOW!!  I want to live vicariously through you until I’m home and able to get hands-on.

Now, in spite of what could be construed as some alpha, tomboyish qualities, my pics reveal that I am all woman.  I love and embrace my feminine prowess.  And I look forward to meeting people who value a beautiful, strong, talented, resilient, and intelligent woman who desires to grow more, gain more, and be more because she is me.

Until then…

Hispanic | N/A

Hi, my name is Elizabeth, just call me Ellie. I am 5ft. 2in. tall, a fiery bilingual mamasita with sultry loving brown eyes.  I'm from the Dominican Republic and have spent all my life in the USA.

The things I enjoy are many, let me elaborate on a few: I have many hidden talents and always finish what I start. I'm very good with my hands and that includes cooking which is one of my specialties. I have a very funny, fun-like personality. I like trying new things and love playing softball. I love all animals. I love dancing; I come from a place where music is a part of my soul. I can move my hips like no other.

My biggest regret in life was making the wrong choices that landed me in prison. I've never been an addict but that has been the biggest eye opener of my life. The hardest part of being incarcerated is being away from my loved ones. I am looking forward to a fresh start and new friendships.

Hi, I’m from Omaha, Nebraska and I’m here looking for friend.  People who are honest, real, and respectful.  I’ve been down for almost 8 years.  I still have a few to go.  I’m interested in arts and crafts.  I busy most of my day making things for the jobs I’m assigned. I work with the bulletin boards in my unit and also for Re-Entry.  This has become a passion for me.  I have plans to redo my whole life when I get out; new people, places and things.

I’ve been doing time alone and I’d like to meet someone.  This time has taught me I’m a strong woman; I’m smart, kind and I can do anything I put my mind to.  I’m hoping to be able to take some college classes and become someone.  I’d like to get a real job and help people who are at risk and see that they can make it.

I enjoy fishing, swimming, all outdoor activities, as well as the simple things.  I miss hugs the most.  My biggest regret is not believing in myself enough to not be influenced by others.

So, if all this sounds like someone you’d like to meet, please contact me.

My name is Esther, which is my middle name.  I am Hispanic and divorced.  I’m an adventurous Gemini with an open and eclectic mind and spirit.  I love to travel and always looking for new things and ideas.  It’s always better to be ridiculous than absolutely boring.

I’m loving, caring, sincere, romantic, outgoing and down-to-earth with a great sense of humor.  The sexiest thing about me is my smile and long black curly hair.  I’m also very artistic and creative.  I enjoy music, art, reading and I love the ocean.

I’m seeking someone with similar interests, someone that successful, intellectual, spiritual minded, family oriented for friendship, and if it leads to something more that would be wonderful, being that I’m single and not getting any younger.

Remember: you come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.  So if you think you’re the man who can capture this glamorous Gemini, please feel free to write me.
