    A little about me.....I am very new to this. I am 55, and am in love with a 53 year old inmate. We are getting married October 23. He is amazing. His early release date is 12/2018. I guess what I am facing now is the reality of how others are viewing me ( us) I am not one to be a push over, and have always been independent. Raised my 3 sons alone, they are successful and married on their own. But now, when I decided to reach out to inmates last Christmas and just become pen pals, I have met 2 amazing men. The first one and I only were pen pals. Nothing sexual at all in our content. Just taling about life, he sent me art work he drew for me, and I made sure he got letters and cards regularly. He introduced me to one of his friends there, and now I am engaged to him. I only have 1 brother who is married and lives in the same area as I, my parents are passed and I have a few close friends that I call family. Plus, of course my 6 grand children. He and I support eachother in this effort, we budget to be sure we can talk at least twice a day and I message him 4 times a day. Plus vid chats. I will be going to see him at least once a month, he is only 4.5 hours from me. So, I am here hoping to feel less alone in my world

    Hi Sophiegurl62,

    Welcome! Congratulations on finding love and your upcoming marriage. I know what you mean when you say you are hoping to feel less alone. Many people don't understand and are judgement of even writing to inmates, let alone marrying one. All the best.

    I just sent you a private message.

    Welcome to the forum Cookii.
    I do not think I have done this, soooo.
    Hello, I live in England, I'm 57 & I write to an inmate in Arizona. I did also write to someone in Texas, but she suddenly disappeared.
    And I sadly no longer have a long doggy, my Dachshund having died a few months ago.
    Every person has their own story.

    I am a 36 year old white male, living in Indianapolis, IN. Recently took up the hobby of writing to prisoners. I've been fascinated with life behind bars for many years. I recently got the inspiration to start writing inmates after listening to a David Sedaris book. Somewhere in there someone mentions that people don't write letters any more. I like snail mail, and miss written letters, but free people usually won't use it. So I thought I'd write to someone in prison, and hope that I can brighten someone's day. Wrote to 3 inmates, got a response from 1 so far.

    I am a 35 year old white, gay male living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I've never excelled at reading or writing, but I figure this is good practice and I like that the end result could leave a positive impression in someone's life (I read an article about a journalist writing a prisoner and was inspired). I have more practice drawing than writing, but I like mixing the two. I've written to 4 inmates - two letters were not formatted to the standards of the facility and were sent back to me - one inmate got parole (great news and I wanted to congratulate him really badly and I wish the best for him) - the last inmate wrote back and made fun of me for including the wrong correctional facility name in his letter (I felt pretty stupid, but it's still funny I guess)
