    Default My address or PO Box

    I am new here and first want to say hello to everyone. I have been reading the forums for awhile and have finally decided to write two people;, however, I am now having second thoughts. I was reading some posts that suggested I only use a post office box. I do not want trouble for myself or my family but where I live a post office box is very expensive and I could not afford that. So now what? Don't write? Use my real address, which I had planned on using all along? I do not want to deprive my friendship to people who could use it and quite frankly it could be the only positive part of their day for now. Any suggestions?
    Thanks for any insight

    Personally I would never give them my physical address esspecially right off the bat! I am not sure what you should do maybe save for a pobox or something.

    I have always used my personal addresses but that is just me. Some people feel uncomtable, but I have never had a problem. If you want to talk more send me a PM.

    This is probably not the most popular opinion but do what YOU feel comfortable with.

    I am new here also....but my opinion is that you should NEVER give out your actual address when you first meet someone whether you meet them online or at a local bar. So I would definitely never use my real address to correspond with someone in jail. I already have a PO Box so that is what I'm using for the 3 that I have sent mail to so far. I think PO Boxes are relatively inexpensive. Small price to pay to keep yourself safe but at the same time offer friendship to someone that could use it.

    I got a regular P.O. Box at my post office which was $42/year. I guess if you live in Manhattan or Los Angeles or something it could run into a lot more. What about those UPS stores or something? Your profile doesn't say where you are otherwise I'd have given it a go.

    I'm a VERY trusting person, but I did approach this with caution.
