Hello, I'm Nathan. I have been locked up 5 years and I am 28 years old. I grew up in the Hattiesburg/Petal, Mississippi area. The type of jobs I had: I framed houses, worked construction, and worked on a tugboat. Some things I enjoyed before I came to prison: I had a couple low riders I liked to work on, I liked installing audio equipment, and playing around on the internet. I like the game “World of Warcraft”.
I am serving time in the Mississippi Department of Corrections. I lived a pretty average life before my arrest. I was under the influence of alcohol (which was rare for me) and in the heat of the argument, I caught a life sentence. I haven't written anyone except a couple of siblings, and my parents, since I've been locked up. I really want to find a good pen pal to write to!
I had really felt bad about what happened when I caught my charge, I pled guilty and didn't go to trial. A new law recently passed giving life sentences a chance at parole after serving 10 years. Now that I have a chance at freedom, I really want to use this time I have left in here to find a good girl for when I get out.
I am not a violent person and when I get out, I'm not letting alcohol or anything else impair my judgment and cause me to be someone I'm not.
If you want to be my pen pal, please write! I'll be waiting.
Dear Friend, I am seeking pen pals to write to. I like to read especially “True Blood” books and I am an artist. I can draw just about anything; portraits, beautiful cards, and many other things…. just ask and you will receive.
I got out of prison in 2011 and I wasn’t on parole. I ran into a buddy that I had done time with. I was working in a body shop learning to paint murals on cars and my buddy called me and asked me to pick him up. I did and I took him to my girlfriend’s apartment. He had a gun, and there was a knock at the door. He was on parole and violated. He only had three months left on his sentence and I never dreamed he'd get into a shoot-out with the cop.
When the door was opened my girlfriend stepped outside to see why the police were surrounding her apartment. My buddy was in the bedroom. I was using the restroom. He had turned all the lights out. When the first officer came in, he shot him in the chest. Fortunately the officer only got bruised cause he had a vest on but they fired into the apartment 27 times. I was lucky I got out. They arrested everyone and threated my girlfriend with 15 years. She did not know he was on the run or had a gun. My first concern was for her so I told the cops that the fifty dollars worth of dope they found was mine and then I took all the charges I could for my buddy, but he still got life plus twenty.
I don't regret that I tried to help a friend but I do regret all the people that got hurt behind that one stupid night. Pick your friends carefully. I still consider him a brother and his mom has adopted me as I have no family. She will tell you of her two sons that I am the most loving and the most unselfish. I'm the one that writes and sends beautiful drawings to her. He just asks her for money. I love her because she loves me unconditionally. I never had a mother before her. She said that even if she didn’t give birth to me, she is my mother. She didn’t have a picture of all three of us so I made a big board with her in the middle and my brother on the other side. She had it framed in glass and it hangs in her home today.
I treat woman like I treat my mother, with respect and like a lady, so if you don't want to be treated that way you don't have to write.
Until I hear from you, have a wonderful life. I will close with this prayer…..
Dear God, I feel an empty space within me, a place where I would so love to love, I know that if my beloved came here, I would adore and cherish, honor and serve her. Please give me the opportunity to expand my heart into the life of another in the holiest way, the most beautiful way, the most intimate way, if that serves your purpose. By doing that would learn the secrets of love and how to grace the life of another in the holiest way. What a marvelous possibility, Lord, that such a treasure would be placed in my hands, please bring to me the right woman. Amen.
I feel a sense of forlorn, trapped in this self-inflicted cage. I appeal to all listening ears. Help me forget this incarceration through good conversation.
The tattoo reads "Vigilante Justice". In 1995, I was forced to face every parent’s nightmare when my daughter was sexually assaulted. After a pathetic response by law enforcement, I took things into my own hands…..what followed were a series of tragedies that received national media attention. After losing a lengthy legal battle, here I sit, eager for friendship and connections beyond these walls.
I've worn many different hats throughout my lifetime, and recently, I have added the title of "author" to my resume, having completed my autobiography and personal account of events surrounding my incarceration.
The majority of my last eighteen years have been spent fighting my case, adjusting to my new life/home, and writing my story. Now that those hurdles have been crossed, I find myself a bit restless and eager to begin the next chapter in my life. In the meantime, I occupy myself by working out daily, and immersing myself in my most recently discovered passion: dog training! For the last three years I have worked training/rehabilitation rescued shelter dogs and it's the most satisfying experience I've had in prison to-date, which brings us full-circle to why I am posting this profile: I find myself talking to the dogs entirely too much and need to make some two-legged friends.
I have led an interesting, action-packed life and would be happy to share my experience with you. If you are interested in hearing more - please drop me a line.
Hello, my name is Gary. I’m from the western suburbs of Chicago Illinois. I’m 6 feet tall, athletic, funny, loving, caring, thoughtful and respectful. I’m looking to write non-judgmental friends who want to get to know a person for who they really are on the inside.
Family is a big part of who I am and I would be nowhere and probably hopeless if I did not have their wonderful love and support while I’m going through this nightmare of a situation.
Enjoyments of mine include sports (favorites are baseball and soccer), snowboarding and reading all kinds of books. I’ve taken up drawing and doing artwork, trying to get better. Maybe some of those who write will get to see some. I enjoy photography and hearing the stories behind the photos. Music is also an enjoyment of mine. I like a wide variety of music types. I have a lot of likes and dislikes in every aspect of life that anyone can get to know if they write me.
I’ve been told from time to time I’m a good listener and give good advice about anything from life to love. Just wish I would take some of that advice myself, but you live and learn and nobody’s perfect.
So with that said I hope to find some good friends to correspond with and see where it takes us. Whether it’s to express your thoughts on life and love or to make lifelong friends, I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
They say a picture's worth a thousand words, so I'll keep this shot! (smile) I put this page up looking to meet new people... I have an open mind and absolutely no expectations beyond a hello. If someone had told me years ago that I'd be in prison, I would have laughed... Now that I'm here I try to make the best of each day. It's ironic, because it's that same laugh that gets me through it.
Life's what you make it and I'm staying positive to make the best of it. I'm an awesome guy if you take the time to look past my mistakes and get to know me for me. I look forward to your letters and to new beginnings.
Hey, what's up?!
My name is Larry and I'm looking to meet positive, honest people and make friends through correspondence or telephone. I'll tell you what I'm not into..... I'm not into drama, negativity, or being untruthful.
I am seeking individuals who will not judge me on the mistakes of my past, but rather on the merits of my character and actions of today. I'm an open-minded, nonjudgmental, straight up person who enjoys a good laugh as well as making others laugh and have a good time.
My interests are politics, current events, television, music, food, mountain biking, and being outdoors, and my passions include family, being an artist, tattoo artist as well as a fitness trainer. Whatever it is I'm into, I'm a success driven person and my immediate objectives are to continue to improve my artwork, complete my college degree, and in the most significant way, continue to make my prison time into a transformative period for me. Aside from reunification with my family, my overall goal outside of prison is to contribute positively to my community and to direct my business education into creating a franchise of tattoo shops and supplies.
So if you're looking to share your experiences, along with me sharing mine, smiling, and having a stimulating conversation, hit me up! I look forward to hearing from you.
I guess it's time for me to make a good first impression, no pressure right? (Smile). Let me tell you a little about myself. Being a Leo, I'm very confident. However, not too proud to realize that I have faults. I do search within myself to identify what they are, so I improve myself. I'm a good listener who enjoys connecting with people and learning about their life experiences.
With a broad sense of humor, I pretty much can find a reason to smile in any situation, no matter how difficult it may be. Isn't that part of having fun and letting go? I believe life is too large for us to be narrow-minded. This is why I try to be open to others perspectives in a situation.
I focus on using my time productively, such as working on college courses and legal work, which are my priorities. But, I do enjoy having a hobby as entertainment, and as you can see, drawing is one of them.
I know it's not easy to be open, especially with a stranger, but hopefully you're reading this with an open mind. I would like to meet someone who I can comfortably share a mutual friendship with honesty, which shows the value that's placed on a friendship.
Most importantly, I would like to talk with someone who will be understanding and that the situation that I'm in does not define me as a person.
Thank you for your interest, I hope to year from you soon.
I'm from Far Rockaway Queens, NY. My name is Rashaun but my friends call me “Green Eyes”.
My hobbies are traveling, cooking, reading, and exercising. I also love animals and spending time with my kids.
While here in prison, I have turned a negative into a positive by obtaining 2 trades and I am now taking a course in advertising. I am 6'2” and weigh 250 pounds in a good way, LOL. I have brown skin, hazel green eyes that change colors, big hands and big feet. That's me in a nutshell... enough about me.
I am looking for a woman with a sense of humor. As you can see I like to joke around. I love women in all shapes and sizes but I prefer older women because they know what they want and tend to be more honest. I just had bad experiences with younger women – lots of games and lies. Older women tell you how it is but if you are younger but more mature and if you understand my situation, I look forward to your friendship as well. I have a pet-peeve for red heads, LOL. Let me end this because I have probably said too much already.
The ball is in your court, I am here and I'm not going anywhere... literally, LOL.
My name is Thomas but my friends call me Tiny Tim. I got my nick name from injuring my foot as a child causing me to walk with a slight limp. I'm good though, it's been more of a blessing than anything.
I'm looking for someone very opinionated and open-minded to correspond with. As myself, I am also an extremely cool, calm, and collected type of person. So know it's all love on my end and I'm truly sincere when I say that.
On a more personal note, I have a strong ambition to become a professional writer. I'm enclosing a poem that I actually now turned into a song. I'm not much of a singer yet, but I'm in the midst of learning how to play the keyboard.
My hobbies may vary but I really enjoy reading educational books and studying. For what I strive every day to learn something new and to be wiser than the day before, where now I have a lot of plans and coming back to prison is not one of them.
Enclosing, thanks to all reading my ad for it gets lonely in here some times, so please write! (smile)
"The Greatest Gift”
It's the flame on an open fire
It's the lust that you desire
It's the vision from afar
It's the fallen dust from a shooting star
It's the greatest gift on this Earth, but it's also a curse
Because pain is love, but I love this pain
Hi I'm Sarah, 27 and I am located just outside Louisville, Kentucky. I enjoy reading, writing, playing sports, swimming, video games, music (former Kentucky Youth Orchestra, viola) and making new friends. I also love to travel. I lived in England for 5 years after high school, and have also visited Spain. I have a beautiful 2 year old son, recently his adoption with a wonderful family was finalized.
I am more of an introvert, but I love learning about people and enjoy humor! My friends describe me as sensitive, intelligent, a hopeless romantic...but too critical of myself. Being incarcerated for nearly 2 years, I have learned to turn events into educational opportunities! I am certainly taking advantage of all the opportunities offered at KCIW. I have met fantastic women here who sadly are so misunderstood by the outside world, and I am thankful for these relationships.
I'm open to meeting folks from all walks of life; I have no discrimination, as I have learned stereotypes are usually wrong. I am interested in empathic, intriguing people with all kinds of lives and interests.
I am a prolific writer, have been all my life, published some work as a child even, so I promise frequent and substantial correspondence.
I look forward to meeting you and with God's direction and help, I can put the past behind me and enjoy looking to a bright future.
Hi…my name is Barbara and I am looking for a pen pal. I’m excited about finding someone to write and getting to know them. Although I have been incarcerated since 1997, only now am I ready to let my guard down and accept a new friend; someone who has interests similar to mine would be a welcome new friend.
I had many interests and hobbies before coming to prison. I enjoy listening to a variety of music, computers, camping, fishing and reading. The one interest which I am able to still indulge in is reading. I love a good book and pass many hours reading.
I am honest and loyal. I expect the same in a pen pal. I am looking for a true and lasting friendship. I am adventurous and open-minded so I’m not looking for perfection, just someone to share their lifestyle and experiences with me; someone I can learn from and who can learn from me.
If you think we could be of mutual benefit to each other, please write and tell me about you. I will be looking forward to hearing from you. You can learn more about me from my web site barbara-holder.com.
Guaranteed delicious correspondence from a fiery vixen on the verge of something great!
A spontaneous, energetic, compassionate, devoted woman in search of a pen pal that will help me stay sane, relevant, inspired, and determined.
I'm the type of woman that will bloom wherever I'm planted. I enjoy traveling, whether it's a planned vacation or a spur of the moment trip to Vegas, I'm all in! Not to mention a sports fanatic. I'll watch games on the big screen but love to hit live sporting events every opportunity I get. My interests vary from bowling and art museums to zip-lining and paint balling. I love the lake on a hot summer's day, relaxing with friends and eating great food.
I believe everyone has passion. Everyone has hopes, and dreams. Sometimes we just need that certain someone to share them with. So I offer you this, an exciting and enticing quest of finding new friendship with so many more possibilities. Age, sex, race, and even country is not an obstacle.
“I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at time hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst then you don't deserve me at my best.” -Marilyn Monroe
I'll be waiting!
My name is Elizabeth. I would like to meet a friend that I can correspond with, who is intelligent and open-minded.
Drop me a line. (smile)
Looking to make a friend? Me too! (smile).
I am looking for someone to show me the same kind of friendship, compassion, and support as you would hope for if the tables were turned and you found yourself in my shoes. In return, I would like to get to know you and build a lasting friendship. I am honest, open-minded, easy to talk to, and have a good sense of humor.
If this calls to you then write me a letter and let's get to know one another.
Looking forward to your letter.
In Search of Camaraderie!!
I love to laugh and love to dream. I enjoy getting to know people and understanding what makes each of us who we are.
Life is full of surprises; ups and downs. It’s my desire to find people to share those surprises with, people that are kind, encouraging, supportive, genuine and direct. I have learned to really appreciate life. With each passing year, I feel more and more zest for life.
A few things I enjoy are listening to music, writing, drawing, working, exercising, and learning new things. I am currently striving to learn Spanish, and I am making fantastic progress.
When I was very young, I made some horrendous choices that resulted in my incarceration. Please don't judge me prematurely and get to know the real me. I have only recently begun the parole review process and have hope of a future in freedom someday.
Who Am I? Glad you asked.
My name is Nichole; I was born and raised in Midwest Iowa.
In the past I attended college, but I still have a great zest for life and for learning new things. I am an intelligent and creative thinker, who at all times tries to be honest with herself and with others.
In my leisure time I like to read and listen to music or the radio (coast to coast). My favorite TV shows are Deadliest Catch and Alaskan Bushmen. I am a handy kind of person who enjoys working on cars and DIY projects. And I have a great love for the outdoors, be it camping, motorcycling or just being outdoors.
I am looking for someone who will appreciate a woman with a unique personality, enjoy intelligent conversations, friendly debates, and silly humor. I am more interested in having a few true friends rather than a room full of associates.
If I’ve got your attention-write me!
I am 27 years old, a mother of two, and I come from a very good family but have struggled with substance abuse from the age of 15.
I got my Federal sentence because in 2009 I had four counts of firearm charges (4 counts - 2 straw purchases), and 1 count of conspiracy for a false statement to license a firearm. I am in here now for a violation of probation from those charges but will not have any probation when I ge3t out.
If I had never put drugs into my life then I would have never made bad choices.
Now I am turning my life around for the better and moving forward in life. I need some good guidance and positive influences in my life to know that I am worth it! (smile). I am very eager, and tell myself to stay positive.
As long as I continue doing the right thing and not give up on myself, God will open doors in my life to a wonderful and great future for myself and my two children.
God bless and I can't wait to hear from you at mail call.
Hello! (smile) I'm a 37 year old woman that enjoys writing, reading, studying law, poetry and doing arts and crafts. I miss so many things from the free world, including but not limited to, picnics, walks in the park, all types of water activities, and riding motorcycles. I enjoy all types of music. I am very intellectual and read extensively to try to learn something new each day. I'm a very passionate and loyal person.
My desire is to be seen as I truly am, very sincere and genuine. I'm seeking long lasting friendship. My idea of a great evening is a candlelight dinner with great conversation.
Hearing my name at mail call is the brightest spot of my day. Your letters and my response is the way that you and I can enrich the lives of one another. Write and I will always do the same.
Hello, I’m Iris, my friends call me Tula. I’m a proud parent to my beautiful daughter whom I love more than life itself.
I have a few years left in my sentence here at the AZ DOC. I look forward to the new beginning my release brings.
I’m interested in corresponding with fun, uplifting people who have a positive outlook on life. Individuals who see the beauty in life, who like to laugh and who believe it is never too late to start over.
