My name is Dennis. I’ve been incarcerated since I was 19 years old. I had a kind of rough growing up and I made some bad decisions at a young age. At 18-year-old I shot someone I perceived to be a rival gang member in retaliation. I have been dealing with the consequences of that decision since then.
As I said, I was very young back then. I’ve spent many years now bettering myself in any way that I can and I continue daily to try to be the best man that I can for myself, but also for the people in my life. I’ve earned a couple different college degrees, my latest being a bachelor’s degree. I have completed a few different vocational programs to. I have learned some skills as an electrician. I also participate in the youth division program in which we share our life experiences with young people and try to help them to make better decisions in life.
I am a very happy person, and I love being supportive and trying to bring happiness to my family and friends. They would attest to the fact that I am a very caring person. I am a highly motivated person. I have discipline. I don’t do drugs. I’m in good shape; I exercise regularly. I am going to be a success when let out of prison and an asset to those whose lives I am a part of.
My reason for placing this ad is because it’s not going to be too long before I am out of here, and I’m looking to get to know a special lady, possibly one I can start building a life with. Someone that I can cherish, be supportive of, and bring happiness to. I have family and friends in my life. I don’t need any kind of financial assistance or anything like that. I’m a genuine person and not trying to play any games. I am also not a shallow person, so please do not allow anything to cause you to be hesitant in writing.
