Revolutionary greetings to all the women out there that are all shades of Black. I’m seeking positive friendships that will build up and benefit both myself and those whom I write. Commitment to one individual woman for me is important at this time. It’s a pleasure for me to meet SBFs from various walks of life that are single, love children, and are goal-oriented. I always keep short and long-term goals for myself. Within the next two years I’m seeking to retain a lawyer to help me get out of prison, and publish a poetry book. Two of my long-term goals is to open two businesses: a barbeque/vegetarian restaurant, and a hip-hop shop/studio. In order for me to develop and build solid relationships, regular communication, trust, honesty, and spirituality are important. I look to find fun relationships with no limitations, as well as business relationships with reciprocation and selflessness coming from both ends. So if you would like to get to know me, I’m here to both listen and correspond with you, and we can help each other succeed. Love & Peace, Ras OnI-Daniel L.

Well hello! My name is Armando Taylor, age 37, 175 lb, 5’11”, and with brown eyed charisma. I may fool a lot of people with the last name. I am a Mexican from the Coachella Valley.

The mind is a wonder and those who are self-disciplined and use such truths will find that inner peace. I’ve been incarcerated now for 2½ years and got some time to go. But if I could find the right person to take a journey with me. Then hey! I’m all yours. Just look me up on Facebook under calacas1352@yahoo.

I knew I would love you and everything you would have to offer, that night I stepped out of the Cal-Tran for a smoke. You were wearing 2015 like it was the last days to a new beginning. And I was just a young artist with a coy lawless attitude for life. Ever the renegade I was for I wore my heart on my sleeves. And at the AT&T park, where they kept the old man, I gazed out at your waters wondering if I was dreaming. Fore no other city at that time had ever given me a reason like you did to stay. And so I left, to settle my debts, and in hopes to return to you seasoned with abundant sense and character. While I am doing that, San Francisco, consider sending me one of your lovers. For I know while they vary in presentation, status, and complexion we are very much alive. Always I will love you second to my beloved Nigeria, Africa.

I’m sure you have heard all this before so I’m just going to let you be the judge when you write me: Michaelraie Gonzales #2106437, Hughes Unit, Route 2, Box 4400, 3201 FM 929, Gatesville, TX 76597

My name is Delfino Hernandez. I’m doing 12 yrs here at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice system. I’m going to be honest from the start, I’m not looking for any type of relationship except that of a friendship, because I got this time to do and don’t need any head game at this time. So I’m looking for anyone that won’t mind being a friend to someone behind bars. I’m 52 going on 52 come April. I’m 155-160 lbs, 5’6”, I’m not light, nor dark in complexion. I’m more inbetween. Dark brown hair & eyes, with very little gray in my head, but quite a lot on my beard, but it comes with age. I’m hoping to write someone around my age, but it don’t matter. I’d rather them already be in a relationship because as I said I’m just looking to be a friend you could write to and talk about any and everything you’d like to share or vent out on or about. I can be here to just hear you out or could give you some type of advice if you’d accept it. Well, I think that’s enough since I’m hoping someone will write. Sincerely, Delfino Hernandez #2088054, Michael Unit, 2664 FM 2054, Tennessee Colony, TX 75886

To the special lady reading these words…Hello, thank you for taking the time to check out my page. I assure you that you’ve made a wise decision. My name is Lazarus. I was born and raised in Dallas, TX a wonderful city, that I’ll love to tell you all about, a placed that groomed me into the man I am today. Since coming to prison I have accomplished a construction trade, overcomers program and am working on getting culinary trade. The fact that I’m in prison is only a blemish to my otherwise untarnished reputation, and it will be a great mistake to judge me solely on that flaw. I’ve made a mistake in life and have learned greatly from it. When I was a boy I thought and acted like one, but now as a man I’ve grown and I move accordingly. I am looking to write someone with an open mind and caring heart. Allow your words to be my navigational system and ray of light as I find my way through this dark place. Lazarus Blue #2116107, Telford Unit, 3899 State Highway 98, New Boston, TX 75570

Greetings to those who truly cares: I am Derrick Webster, 54 of age, African American, 5’7, 160 pounds, soon to be released next year 2021. I am in search of those of sound mind, someone who’s willing to accommodate me intellectually of one’s innermost feelings and ideas. Female compassion and an honest relationship, making plans toward the future, means a great to me if nothing but friends. I am a spiritual person when it comes to sharing my thoughts and feelings intellectwise which exhilarates my soul and intensify affections, I feel that spiritually when used as a means of contact can bring about a deeper level of understanding and relatedness. It’s been awhile since I’ve been in any kind of relationship, therefore I’ve lost the basic touch of one’s encouraging inspiration, the inner and outer beauty as to share one’s thoughtful observations, in providing simple guidance for creating a radiance that comes from within because beauty is soul deep. There’s nothing more powerful than honesty! Derrick Webster #1155256, Michael Unit, 2664 FM 2054, Tennessee Colony, TX 75886

Hello my name is Tatriauna Roberts and a nickname that I go by is Auna. I’m 26 years and 5’5, 115 lbs. I’m mixed with black and Irish, my eyes are brown and my hair is dark brown. I’m from St. Louis Missouri and moved to Texas in October 2016. My favorite color is pink and I love to do girly things, like shopping, reading, cuddling, etc. I listen to all types of music and love horror, comedy, and action movies. I love chilling at home, but will sometimes be down for going out somewhere. I’m a mother, so my world revolves around my kids. I’m just looking for someone to write (between ages 28-40) and if it turns into something more, then I welcome it. For pictures, if possible, you can get some off my Facebook page that are to your liking. Tatriauna Roberts #2286974, Hobby Unit, G2-10T, 742 FM 712, Marlin, TX 76661

My name is LaToya, but my friends call me Black. I’m a sensuous, exotic female who will try just about anything once, depending on what it is. I’m passionate and seductively kinky. I have a great sense of humor, and no matter my current situation I’m honest, trustworthy, and optimistic with a caring heart and an adventurous spirit. LaToya Smith #1576145, Mountain View Unit, 2305 Ransom Road, Gatesville, TX 76528

O’-si-yo. I am a 41-year-old Native American (75% Cherokee, 25% Caucasian). I am 5’11”, 175 lbs, black/graying hair, brown eyes. I am kind, caring, compassionate, dedicated, and creative. I enjoy writing, reading, drawing, learning new things, watching movies, and much more. I have made a lot of bad choices in my life and one of those put me in a cage made of steel and concrete. Even though life has its ups and downs, I manage to keep a positive attitude. I have never been stronger in will and wisdom than I am today. Entering these cold and lonely white walls you are faced with two choices: Lose all hope or get stronger. I chose to climb up the ladder. In this current chapter of my life I am embarking on a new story of Michael. 😊 I am currently working on a degree in Biblical Studies through “The Freedom Academy”, educating myself in other cultures, and teaching myself Cambodian and Korean languages. I find the Cambodian writing beautiful in the way they write their words. At one time I could only read and write Cherokee. I didn’t learn to read and write English until I was 32 years old. I have always liked to learn about other people. To me other people are like snowflakes, there are not two alike, each person is unique and beautiful in their own way. I really cherish my friendships so am only looking for a genuine God-loving friendship. God Bless you all. Michael Shane Coronado #1681652, Hughes Unit, 3201 FM 929, Gatesville, TX 76597-1010

¿Cómo estás? I am a Hispanic male, look like I am 25 yrs old lol. Around 187 lbs, 5’6”, salt & pepper hair, brown eyes and light brown skin, people describe me as a kind-hearted caring man. I only want to do the will of my Heavenly Father. I enjoy reading the Bible and doing Bible studies. I enjoy making my friends laugh to help them to forget the bad day they have had. I value friendship because it’s God’s gift. I hope and pray that you want to get to know me before you pass judgment. Because everybody has a past, even Jesus had a past. I don’t care about anybody’s past because if I judge I’m no friend. If I judge how can I show my Heavenly Father’s love that he has shown me. I’m not trying to make myself look as though I’m an angel or better than the next man. Because I’ll never be either. I enjoy: walks in the park, spending family time, bar-b-ques, dining out, I listen to Tejano music, oldies 50s-60s, some blues, some of the 80s I like to sing. But the truth is I’m so bad the cows starts to howling when I am singing LOL. I really enjoy making the one I’m with feel special. The kind of pen-pal-friend I’m looking for loves God more than anything. Race, looks don’t matter to me. Thank you for taking the time to read this, I hope to hear from you soon. Gary Balboa #1999361, Hughes Unit, 3201 FM 929, A-H, Gatesville, TX 76597-1010

Hello, and thank you for granting me your time today. How are you and what’s going on? DOB 7-24-76, LOS Life, RD 2028. An alluringly handsome 6’3”, 250 lb, 43 year old Black male from Houston, TX here seeking to share my struggle having endured a great sense of abandonment and hardship throughout my 26 year of journey of incarceration. A lot has been lost. However, I remain hopeful and optimistically faithful. I’m just a man striving in a complex world. A man with the ability to dream and the courage, confidence and wisdom to turn my aspirations into accomplishments. I have not always done the right thing in life – drinking the tears of angels and stumbling in the shoes of absolute fools. The pain in my life has delivered a profound overstanding to my heart and mind. Furnishing me with growth which is a process of trial, error and experimentation. You can learn more from your failures than your successes. I have a great maturity to offer. I come seeking a sympathizer – one who is thoughtful and trustworthy. Willing to share an exquisite taste of reciprocity by bringing whatever intellectual inspiration to my dull life. I promise not to judge, blame or accuse. It’s real! “Life is the greatest of all statements, so make sure yours speaks volumes.” Can receive email via or snail mail. Keith A. Ross #00722581, Wynne Unit, 810 FM 2821, Huntsville, TX 77349

Hi. I’m David aka “Lil’ Inky”. Single and very charming father of two amazing teens. At this moment I’m isolated from the world physically, but mentally getting ready for bigger, better things. I’m only back on a parole violation, will be soon released from this sad lonely institution I’m forced to live in. I made lousy decisions and learned the hard way. I’m not perfect but who is. I cry, hurt, bleed and breathe just like you. This ain’t the life I want, friendship, true love, a family is what I desire. I know I’m a wonderful father and a marvelous man, seeking to meet better friends or get lucky enough to find that “one” fragment. My heart lacks a confident, unique well minded woman who can enjoy hiking, fishing, and camping. But also dinner and a movie, a woman who enjoys laughing and having fun. My likes are a female’s edges, my weakness her beautiful smile. Moments to remember “you” basking in my arms lost in each other’s eyes. I’m interracial, all that matters is her corazon, “heart”, mind and soul. My favorite way to pass the time is reading, writing, working out, and drawing. I like building myself mentally and physically. I’ve also furthered my education in HVAC-R so upon my release I plan on going into business for myself. Hoping I can grasp your time and attention for mutual friendship, time invested is time well spent…A perfect day would begin and end with a friend like you…David Benitez Jr. #01489473, Hughes Unit, Route 2, Box 4400, Gatesville, TX 76597

Ever thought of adopting a friend? If so, I’m available, smart, witty, handsome, alone, social, loyal, felicitous, protective, and passionate about finding a friend. I’m fond of communion. Not seeking sympathy but empathy in fellowship. I’m adorable as a Yorkie and storable like a teacup. Better I smile when tickled, listen with passion and respond with care. I’m into creative writing, presently working on my autobiography. I enjoy poetry, puzzles, sports, not really into physical training, however I do enough cardio to stay healthy. I fancy reading Western, urban, and romance novels. I plan to continue my education in business, science, and criminal law. I love to fish, camp, and cuddle. I’m a country city boy. In addition to ranching I’m into fast cars & conscientious women. A good date consists of dinner and a movie. A great date is filled with laughter & excessive eye contact. Qualities I like in a woman are confidence & optimism. I find a woman’s eyes to be her sexiest body part. Her smile is my weakness. To be feminine is beautiful, sensual, and magnetically attractive to the masculinity inside me. I have no type, what’s essential is unseen. I’m extremely inter-racial. I encourage all women white, Asian and Latin ethnic to write me. To find a true friend is my lifetime goal. Robert Thomas #1829000, Hughes Unit, Route 2, Box 4400, Gatesville, TX 76597

Hi! I will make this very simple. I would like it very much to have a female to correspond with. I have been down for six years serving a life sentence (Non-Agg). I come up for parole in October of this year, but the way parole works in Texas, I’ll probably be given a set off this first time up. I’m trying to be optimistic and say I will be granted the first time. There is a whole story to my life that I would like to share. I promise to respond to all, so write to me. Later. Michael Brown #1978080, Polunsky Unit, 3A-67-B, 3872 FM 350 South, Livingston, TX 77351

Hello ladies…I’m a 42 year old SWM incarcerated in a Texas state prison. I’m 5’10, with hazel eyes and dark brown hair. I have many interests/hobbies, but my main one is the automotive stuff. I’m a former car audio / video / alarm installation tech. I love many different types of music and movies. I enjoy reading, writing, beaches, b-b-q’ing, outdoors, and some sports. I’m non-judgmental, honest, funny, and seek someone of the same. I spend the vast majority of my time in my unit law library and enjoy doing law stuff. I seek a free-world lady pen-pal (prohibited from communicating with incarcerated women – prison policy), who is interested in being friends. I’m open to any race, but my age preference is 30 years old and up, someone mature who is seeking genuine friendship. Obviously, there is way more to me than just what I’ve said above, and look forward to telling you all about me, while I learn about you. A true friend awaits you. Take care. Frankie Nealy #1714921, Ellis Unit, 1697 FM 980, Huntsville, TX 77343

Hello, my name is Jerrold. I’m 49 years young, Afro-American, 5’7 and 195 pounds. I’m a Sagittarius, respectful, honest and trustworthy man who cares for others’ feelings. I’m spontaneous, adventurous, open-minded and willing to try anything once. I enjoy comedy, bowling, traveling and cooking. I’m into full figured/plus size ones but I do not discriminate against others, especially if the bond and connection are there. I’m looking to establish a friendship with someone who is open-hearted, strong minded and am willing to let their sincerity reach far beyond their physical existence to touch me with a sense of joy. I know life can be full of tangles for many of us and often the encouragement we need to strive to overcome life’s struggles relies on our communication with someone who wants to see us achieve against our hard times. Being in here denies me from a lot but it doesn’t deny me from being who I am as a person and giving someone my honesty, trust and respect to build a strong foundation for a friendship or relationship. I’ll be released on 5-20-2020 or maybe sooner. So if you have room for a genuine guy like myself in your heart I would be honored and love to hear from you. Open to hear from anyone. Take care and God bless. I can be reached via text at 513-297-4239 or write Jerrold Ezell #13359089, FCI Milan, PO Box 1000, Milan, MI 48160

Hello precious friends. Damon R. Johnson here, just so happen to be a SBM who’s willing to meet new friends from around the globe. I was born in Norfolk, VA but raised in Oakland, CA. Currently I’m serving 19-48 months for Level II drug trafficking charge. I’m scheduled for release on 5/26/20. If I don’t make parole then I discharge a free man in September 2020. I’m 44 yrs of age, 5’9”, 189 lbs of solid muscle. I look 30, no one believes I’m over 40 and I’m fine with that. I’m one of multi talents with a Class B License for Airbrakes, a certified forklift operator, tow motor operator, and I’m skilled in the water systems field and have experience in welding. I work out 5 days a week and I pray daily that God comes into my life. I also write urban novels. I’m genuine, fun-loving, energetic, super-loveable. There’s so much I can say about myself but in a relationship I understand that it’s not all about me. I’m hoping the right moment has presented itself for my dream to come true and that is to meet a great friend or possibly the love of my life. I believe that unconditional love is what true Romance is all about. I want to hear from everyone. Looks, race, weight and age as long as you’re grown is not important. It’s what’s inside that counts. Will respond to all, and I can call on my own dime. Damon R. Johnson #1219178, WSCC, PO Box 7007, Carson City, NV 89702

I’m 63 years young, have served 33 years in prison for taking money. I’ve met the parole board six times, starting in 1997 & received four year denials each time my applications were viewed by the screening committee. (Clemency) the fourth time I received merit in 2011. I also received merit in 2015 final decision under Governor Mike Beebe. Mr. Beebe denied me each time saying there were protesters, which I’ve learned the Prosecutor and Judge only objected, no one protested. I re-applied May 17th, 2019 to learn our screening committee ruled “No merit”. So I’m now awaiting a response from Governor Ian Hutchinson. I badly need help, I’ve a few hundred dollars I’m holding to get a lawyer willing to assist me in gaining my freedom. I have no family, furthered my education in prison, am receiving dialysis treatment three times weekly, wheelchair-bound from spinal injury in 1969. I feel I’ve served my time, overdue, yet can’t get out. I truly pray to hear from whomever is viewing this letter, for it’s true to the best of my knowledge. I’ve pleaded with everyone I know concerning my inhumane treatment. I was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. Since my family passed on I have no help. Helping me would harm no-one. I seek a pen pal to sincerely share everything with and God knows I’m a good man! I hope to read your thoughts, so until then, “God bless you!” Respectfully, Lamar Kemp #085183, ORCU, PO Box 1630, Malvern, AR 72104

39 yrs, 6’1, 185, in search of someone to shed a little light on these grey walls and in return I’d be willing to share my desires for the future. My incarceration is only temporary. However, this new journey that I’ve chosen comes with a new thirst for life, knowledge and companionship. One of the world’s most sought after secrets is happiness. I realize that happiness comes in many forms. The happiness I seek comes in the form of a letter. Words are powerful. Words can be a new beginning for a person. Certain things in life are inevitable, like we know that the sun will rise and set with each day! I can only hope that our chance of meeting will be an inevitable moment. So I hope the mailman will pick up and deliver your first letter to me….Alex Castillo #F72197, CSP, D2-124, PO Box 5007, Calipatria, CA 92233

Unlike most men who are in prison, I have no tattoos, I’m not in a gang, I don’t use drugs, and I’m not a repeat offender. This is my first and last time in prison. Believe it or not, the man gave me 12 years for protecting my home and family. But I’m glad to report that I’m almost out. So, if you are a lady that needs a thug in her life, please ignore this ad and move on to the next one. Bye Felicia. Now, for the rest of you who are looking for a real man and not some young punk without direction, please allow me to introduce myself properly: Hi, my name is Manuel and I’m an attractive 42 year old Latino (5’10, 190 pounds). In the free world I used to be a DJ/music producer and I helped a few people get signed to major labels. Nowadays I write books and short stories; one of which came in first place in a movie script contest. I also spend my days furthering my education, working out and reading autobiographies. Now I’m looking to interact with a Black or Asian woman between the ages of 30-40, and I pray that she loves music as much as me. If this ad has sparked your interest then look no further and holler at me. You won’t be disappointed. Manuel Aleman #AP8157, Walden House MCRP, 2307 West 6th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90057

Praise the Lord and may God truly bless you! My calling to become a pastor has always been in my heart. However, for years I attempted to do my own will, in which landed me in prison. After some true growth and honest self-examination I finally realize that in order for me to be happy with myself, I had to surrender my life to Christ. Now that I have, God has been using me to lead souls to him like never before and for that I am beyond grateful. Not to turn this into a long-winded sermon. I’m simply seeking support/funds/sponsors in completing seminary! I’ve been preaching for years, but now has come the time to seek becoming: “Ordained”. So if God touches your heart to help me in this journey, please contact me. P.S. Yes, I’m single seek my good thing (wife).

I’m a white, 56 yr, male originally from Calgary, Alberta, Canada who grew up in San Fernando Valley, L.A. I’ve been locked up now for almost 20 years and I’m a 3rd striker who goes to the parole board in 2025. I’m not a sex offender of any type nor am I in for murder. All my charges stem from running from the police. However the reason for my current predicament i.e., being housed in solitary confinement is I’m being accused of allegedly stabbing Sirhan Sirhan for which I’m fighting it in court. I haven’t had a pen pal in years so I thought it’s best to be upfront and honest so there’s no surprises later. As to a pen pal I have no particular or bias preference and I’m looking forward to hearing from somebody. Sincerely, Stephen Miko #T48293, CSP-LAC, ASU-G-181, PO Box 4430, Lancaster, CA 93539

Factually innocent political prisoner entombed on fabricated sex case. Originally a radical activist protest organizer from Berkeley; before being transformed by “law enforcement” into paper-man pariah poster-child satanic “mind control” cult leader – I was the lead singer/guitarist for the band 2B1. Our first, of many actions, was providing logistics, staging and music for the Oakland Union of the Homeless, at Bobby Hutton Field in 1988 for the Hyatt Regency march and riot. Now 60, still active in the struggle for truth, justice, and freedom from oppression for all peoples. In 2005, I was convicted – according to the homophobic judge – because I “admitted” I was gay. You: eyes wide open and can see through the paper-man propaganda polluting “freemind” on the out. Me: Danish-Hungarian Jew, scholar, poet, “jailhouse” lawyer, mathematician, computer scientist, author, & etc., looking for serious fellow activists, friends, hands-on doers: Technologists, Gearheads, and Admin.

A Black Survivor’s Story. After 43 years of false imprisonments. 32 years of illegal solitary confinements. 10 more years of being buried alive in a still secret model of involuntary human research experiments. Plus, still being a captive survivor of three mass hunger strike protests to help expose all of the above crimes of genocide and domestic torture violations. I urgently need to meet or reconnect to some new female kindred spirits, whom are mentally mature enough to mutually aid me to bring a Black Jubilee-based end!!! To those most evil, and man-made shackles of physical bondage and economic neo-slavery.

ALL due respect. My name is Raynon. Seeking someone to exchange positive vibe with. Mature conversation about what comes to mind sprinkled with a few moments of youthful laughter. As you see, I have made a few boyish choices in my past, but have used my mistakes as stepping stones to rise to who I have become. We are all a work in progress at different points in the process. Would you agree? So a little more about myself: I am a Leo; close to my parole hearing with expectations of freedom; I am very open and honest; I look for a reason to smile. I am solution-oriented, so worries and stress are not welcome. A go-getter with ambition and vision to see where I am headed. I have a gift of seeing value in others and letting my actions tell them their worth. No children, or baggage attached to my life; and I am not interested in playing the “tuff guy” to attract weak relationships. I am satisfied in who I am today. And am not threatened by a woman who is satisfied and strong within herself. Which leaves the million dollar question…”What’s on your mind?” I look forward to you. Raynon Jones #V15940, CSATF, G2-7-2U, PO Box 5244, Corcoran, CA 93212

I’m 6’0” – 183 lbs. with blue/grey eyes & brown hair. I was born on May 6, 1965 in Forrest City, Arkansas. Interests include: reading, music, animals, cooking, children, moon-lite walks along the beach. I’m open minded, I possess a great sense of humor, I’m also a very understanding and caring person with a warm heart & gentle touch. My reaching out hoping to find a non-judgmental & compassionate person is not a game to me…so I don’t lie to or deceive, and I refuse to put up false images. If a person allows me to be a part of their life, I want them to know ME and not some false image. People make mistakes/misjudgments – I was young and stupid when I made mine…but I blame nobody except myself. Therefore, I have to pay the consequences for my being foolish & irresponsible. I wish so much that I could go back in time so I can change what happen…but, I can’t! So, I have to deal with the consequences, which is only right. I ask that I be judged by me as a person, and not by the environment I’m in. Nobody should go through life alone…so I ask YOU if you’ll give me a chance? Daniel Bowen #330705, FSP, PO Box 800, Raiford, FL 32083

I’m incarcerated in Florida until my return to San Francisco in a few years. I’m extremely isolated here and would really appreciate a friend to occasionally correspond with me.

Greetings World! Warmest regards are included. I write not simply in search of a pen pal; my aim is to earn a friend, lovingly. After nearly 30 years on lockdown, and yet maintain an impressive sense of hope, sanity, and the ability to intelligently reach out, such begs the inquiry: How; how can one exposed to such length of incarceration keep it together? My response: “Strength is a many-faceted word”. However, any authentic “Strength” must also include an ingredient of “LOVE”. I have discovered both, from within – I AM BEAUTIFUL! Please write. 57 yrs, 6’, 220 lbs, release date: 1/20/28; earliest 1/20/2024. Will re-locate. Edward Lee Wilson #079099, APCI, 8100 Highway 64 East, Avon Park, FL 33825

Help wanted. Searching for caring people in a world full of so many cold hearts. I’m a kindhearted, understanding man who gives full attention and appreciates those in his life. I’m 40 yrs young, still full of fun, 190 lbs. Been through so much, I know I’m blessed to be above ground. I hope to make connections with the outside world through this ad. I enjoy shows like the Walking Dead. Unfortunately it seems to reflect life as it is with us having many issues already and still wanting to take advantage and harm each other instead of living peacefully together. Maurice Pledger #R03597, GCC, 12078 Illinois Route 185, Hillsboro, IL 62049

Hello possible friend, bestie, or more 😊. My name is Henry, I’m 33 and I’m from Chicago, Ill. I’m here with great hope of establishing a sincere and honest friendship with someone who can see where I’m at doesn’t define who I am. Life is about taking chances and doing things beyond the normal and meeting new people of all walks of life. Some find this unthinkable, but I believe the unthinkable is attained only after we step outside our comfort zone and truly be open to the pleasure of a friendship. I myself am a simple individual who is humorous and easy to get along with. I’m nonjudgmental, open minded with a down to earth personality. Like a diamond I have flaws, but my value is immeasurable. Besides me being active in any way possible, I enjoy reading, writing poetry, and engaging in meaningful conversation. My strongest quality is me being a great listener and my loyalty to someone on all levels. There’s so much more to me than just these words that I’ll love to share. So if you’re interested in knowing more I look forward to hearing from you soon. Truly yours, Henry Richardson #R58396, MCC, PO Box 1000, Menard, IL 62259

God took His time with you and I will too…to earn your trust, earn your laugh, earn your friendship. I’ve been locked up since age 14 in 1995, so know all about wasted time. But now that I’m within a couple years of release, I don’t have any more to waste in making genuine connections with genuine people. Some things to share in common are a love for nature, animals, yoga, tattoos, and entrepreneurship. I’m studying Spanish, business, and communication, so I can pursue my ambitions to make a world impact. No romance, no handouts, and no strings, just extraordinary adventure. Jonnie Morgan #K60696, SCC, 6665 State Route 146 East, Vienna, IL 62995

I don’t have anyone on the outside and would love to have someone to communicate with. My name is Cetewayo Ragins. I’m 38, black and have a very open stance to everyone’s belief systems and modus operandi. If possible I would like a female pen pal, as I am around dudes all day and it sucks. Plus I think I am more open and expressive with women. I love music of all forms and my interest in books and movies tends to be toward esoteric forms of expression. I am in a place of spiritual growth where I recognise the omni that flows under all positive religions and spiritual paths. I would also feel more safe knowing that I have someone on the outside that knows I’m here so they can’t just treat me like an animal. Thank you for your time.

To be in another’s thoughts prevails the truth and positively brings out the best in two (Hebrews 13:3).

Therefore life without the possibility is only the court’s sentence and does not define my true personality. So as the traffic sign agrees any should obey the yellow light when cruising for need as I know the heart is fragile and God only issues one to each human being. Guard it with all ya might of means.

May I say something to Black women out there. Are you rich – successful – very smart. But your relationships aren’t working – you only need a poor-desperate man. If you choose a man that can think or has had a relationship it won’t work, you’ll only be lonely again. Because you choose material. A Black woman must choose her brother, because he is Black only. I promise you, if you are successful and lonely, you only need a poor man – that hasn’t had a relationship – can barely drive. Please think about it and look me up.

I have been incarcerated 29 months with no one to write or family. And would love to have someone to help do my time. My charges are not violent or sexual, I’m incarcerated due to “self-defense” but I stepped out of self-defense making it an offense. I’m not a bad person. I’m a loving person looking to compromise with a nice and loving lady. I actually was protecting a woman and her 3 year old from an intruder on the day of my arrest, but I guess even heroes have to suffer. I would like to write someone who understands me and is willing to open up to me because I’m ready to do whatever it takes to have that special someone. Cedric Barnett #512563, MCCC, PO Box 2000, Wartburg, TN 37887

I would really enjoy having a pen pal that I could talk to and feel like I have some kind of friend that truly means well in what they write. I have met a few people that I write through the Tennessee prison system but to have someone on the outside to talk to & have a conversation with about almost anything would really help me out in a lot of ways. The main way is because I use writing as a form of therapy to change my mindset when I get depressed or just down in the dumps. Being able to write someone from the outside and talk to would be a God send and a pleasure to have the ability to do so. I will be grateful for anyone. Thank you in advance & God bless. Sincerely, Justin Calvin #608918, HCCF, PO Box 549, Whiteville, TN 38075

My name is Kevin, I’m 43 yrs old, divorced since 2014 and doing time alone. I started doing methamphetamines and lost myself in 2014 and began a sinful criminal life. I was arrested on eight felonies and came to prison five years ago (Feb 11th, 2015). I’m a Christian and walk a new path toward change. I’m looking for a female friend to share my thoughts, feelings, and maybe life with. Age, looks, past can be whatever, all I ask is honesty, just be real! I’m six foot tall and weigh 200 pounds. I work out every day so I’m in great shape. I’m covered in tattoos from wrists to ankles. I have baby blue eyes and light brown hair.

After the darkest hour of the night, the dawn awakens. A cliché that has proven itself true as my life unfolds, in terms of my incarceration there is no exception while I am still in the midst of darkness. The sunrise is now in my view shining on what is now less than three years before I will be eligible for parole again. So as I patiently wait for that day, I would like to lay a foundation on which to build up new friendships. My friends and family call me “Nando”. As a spirited individual I like to keep active, whether or work or on my downtime, keeping busy is key. I enjoy sports, exercising, reading and listening to music. I’m looking to add writing to that list of hobbies. I believe it’s a dying art and being intimate without the physical is something I am interested in reviving. A letter goes a long way. Your thoughts, feelings, laughs, and activities on paper help my mind temporarily escape the reality of my confinement. It also builds bridges that not only reconnect me to the outside world but also leads to new friendships. Since everything has to begin with something I’ve taken the initiative to start building. The next move is on you. If interested I look forward to meeting you. If you choose to respond by please attach a return address. I appreciate your time and hope to be writing you soon. Until then, Fernando Flores #903146, Ferguson Unit, 12120 Savage Drive, Midway, TX 75852

Want to see pictures of me? Look up Cash Mula on Facebook. Please call me Prince. I’m waiting to meet you and can’t wait to hear from you so please don’t second guess it. You can put a smile on my face with one letter no matter your age, race, location, or gender. I just love making new friends honestly. I love to write, so much so I’ve began writing books. I read “A LOT” as well, play basketball, and work out to stay in shape. Prison has changed my outlook on life, now I look forward to my future whereas I use to live in the moment, I now stay healthy when I use to do drugs, also I actually cherish life and grow by meeting new people learning new things. I don’t think I’ve ever really had a friend that wasn’t there for the wrong reasons ya know? And I can honestly say I’ve been in love with all the wrong people, but if I can love them as much as I did imagine what would come of a mutual love and understanding? Everyone deserves to experience “true love” and “true friendship” in life. Don’t let my tattoos scare you away, I’ve been a tattoo artist for a while and was trying so hard to become a tattooed model but…well…you catch my drift. Rehabilitation and success require a little help at times, even if it’s just good advice. Please don’t be a stranger, write me. Prince, aka Robert Merrill #2043543, Ramsey Unit, 1100 FM 655, Rosharon, TX 77583

INNOCENT MAN, WRONGLY CONVICTED. As of now, I’ll never go home. But there is hope! I have an alibi, and one day I will prove my innocence. Therefore I seek a friend who will help ease my troubled mind, gladden my weary heart, and brighten these darkest of days with kind words and compassion. I am a musician (I play French horn and drums); a writer of poetry, novels, short stories, screen- and stageplays, and songs; and a novice artist, still working on my skills as a portraiture. In the 3¾ yrs I have been incarcerated, I have obtained multiple paralegal certificates, not only to help fight my case, but to secure a better future for myself. I love learning new things just for the sake of learning something new. In school, I excelled at math, science, and social studies (history/geography). I was in ROTC, and spent 6 yrs in band. I enjoy most genres of music, particularly older music from the 60s-90s. But I like newer country! Shout out to Rascal Flats! Due to my situation, I’m not looking for a relationship and welcome all races, ages, sexes, sizes, shapes and sexual orientations to write, whether in America or overseas. I feel open, honest, and effective communication is paramount in every type of relationship, platonic or otherwise. I have nothing to hide, and don’t judge others. Feel free to ask anything, I’ll be forthright, asking only the same in return. Vernard Brown Jr. #2040544, Michael Unit, 2664 FM 2054, Tennessee Colony, TX 75886

Hello out there ladies. My name is Brian Shalom Hunter but I am known to most as simply “Goldie”. Unfortunately for the moment I am trapped inside the belly of the beast. The good news is, the oppressor did not win in my case, I overturned a natural life sentence and am due for release in 2021.

I am so much more than my current environment, I like to think of myself as old money and fine wine – I just continue to mature and get better with time. I’m looking for that special lady of similar mindset, a woman who refuses to lose and on a constant mission to better oneself and win. I want someone who is loyal, respects herself and commands respect, a Queen who knows her worth and won’t settle for nothing less. Are you my Queen?

Hello World. 2 my Queens I’m a SWM who come from Lansing, Michigan. My name is Robert L. Kissee, everybody call me Rob Villain. I’m 32 years old, 5’11, 176 lbs, brown hair, hazel eyez with many tattoos. I have been confined 2 these 4 walls for 14 years since the age of 18 yrs old. In many ways you can say I grew up behind these walls. Being gone for so long I’ve lost communication 2 the outside world so I’m hoping 2 find new friends who we can share some laughs with but also hold a real convo. I’m very open minded on all things. I’m what they call an activist in the making so I’m looking for anybody who can help me reach the masses with our cause. I want somebody who can build with me so I can gain more knowledge. I’m open 2 all conversation. I’m also looking for a beautiful woman who I can conversate with & get 2 know, I’m NOT looking no money only freedom from these 4 walls. I go up for parole in 2021. I will be truly bless from Allah if you come thru this and reach out, Inshallah. You can reach out 2 me at but due 2 being labeled as a gang member (Blood) I can’t respond on jpay so please send a return address. See you at the crossroad, can’t wait 2 take this journey. May Allah bless you and your loved ones. Robert L. Kissee #575639, BCF, 13924 Wadaga Road, Baraga, MI 49908-9204

Dear lovely Queens – “Are you tired of the same old personal ads and lies? Or guys who are lacking honesty, sincerity, and respect?” Well I pray that this letter finds you Queens in the best of health and spirits. My name is Jeremy Raphael Jackman, I’m a Moorish American, Sovereign, Aboriginal, Indigenous King. I’m in search of a beautiful gorgeous Queen that knows her worth in this world, to write and develop a friendship and more. Someone once said a stranger is just a friend you have not met yet. I believe that is true, do you? I also believe true friendship and more should be built on trust, respect, honesty, appreciation, sincerity, and attention. Because I believe in honesty up front, feel free to ask any question you have for me. No topic is taboo either! So you Queens know I’m a 30 year old Asiatic (Black) man, I have long dreads, I’m a conscious brother seeking only one Queen to take my breath away. I’m 5’7 and 160 pounds, handsome Moor that’s seeking divine love. My lovely Queen if you are out there always understand nothing in life is guaranteed, but should you consider becoming my pen Queen, here are some things I can promise to be for you: someone you can come to for comfort; eyes you can look into and trust; a heart that understands and doesn’t judge; a supporting shoulder to cry on; a door that is always open; and time devoted to you alone.

Dear Reader – What that do did baby. Slow to the finish line on mine. If you always looking up like me, slow motion is better than no motion. My personality is lit up like game 7 of the World Series at night time, with a look on life like a magnified glass. I wake up trying to make happy happy; and put a smile on a smile face. Deeper than the average, and rounded like a basketball. I am a street cat that is self-education, with a heart the size of the day after forever. If you looking at this as mere verbosity, it’s meant to qualify and disqualify. I play, I joke, I laugh, I love, I feel, I understand, disqualif I, I listen, I care, I believe, I’m yours, I’m truthful, I’m serious as all outdoors. I don’t matter what you are like, I am water, I will fit your mold. If you can grow you are my type, if you can open up we’ve got more in common than could be expected. If you love people, life, and yourself, get at me. You really don’t have to know the combination to your heart, I’m a professional safecracker! I will know what you’re keeping in it, before you breathe out the air you just breathed in. The exact opposite of being full of myself darling, I’m just in tune with the universe. If the universe can be breathtaking, why can’t we? Peace and blessings momie. Much L/P/B, Allen Ray McKinzy Jr. #1836478, Allred Unit, 2101 FM 369 North, Iowa Park, TX 76367

Hello…My name is Nigel Hampton and I’m 28 years old. 5’9”, 140 lbs. Very athletic. Born and raised in Houston, Texas. I would describe myself as fun, easy going, ambitious, non-judgmental, giving, playful, romantic, passionate, family oriented, and monogamous. Patience and understanding are the two inner qualities I hold within myself. As for being indoors, I enjoy all of the typical things such as morning rituals and lazy afternoons. I also enjoy cooking although I must admit, I sometimes have to dig the instructions out the trash. LOL. As far as being outdoors, I enjoy just about everything, from dirt bike and ATV riding to jet skiing. I’m currently incarcerated for the mistakes and decisions I regretfully made as a youth, but I’m sure you know history is rarely made by reasonable men. I am in search of a pen-pal who is willing to become a long-term friend and who will keep me engaged in their daily personal life in a way that will prevent me from becoming lost in this prison system. Someone who knows balance is important to them, enjoys the nice things in life, but is also spiritual and doesn’t get fully caught up in the quest for material goods. Someone who enjoys the simple things in life, but can also be spontaneous. And just so you know, age dissimilarities has nothing to do with comparability! Nigel M. Hampton #1847481, Allred Unit, 2101 FM 369 North, Iowa Park, TX 76367

Greetings! My name is Alamar Cyril Houston, 42 years of age, 5’9, 260 pounds. I am currently incarcerated for a hit and run (D.U.I.). I am looking to make contact with like minded people willing to correspond with me. I will not discriminate on gender because we are all human beings full of human resources. I am looking to establish unbreakable friendship. I am very open minded and always looking to try something new as long as it is beneficial to my intellectual portion of the brain that will allow me to obtain and gain success for the near future. My favorite color is lavender purple because it stands for royalty; green is my second because it represents money. I am currently studying banking procedures on how to establish a treasury direct account with the Department of Treasury for the purpose of discharging debts (dollar for dollar under House Joint Resolution 192 of June 5, 1933).

Aloha Ladies! I’m 6’1 tall, 220 lbs, hazel eyes, golden tan skin, reddish brown hair. I’m not looking for no money or writing supplies or nothing like that. I was born 9-2-60, I’ll be 59 this year. I’m a home owner, part owner in a family ranch, a business owner. My ranch & home are up north of Woodland, CA. I have 20 months to do, been locked up 6 months. Looking for single female age 55 to 70 for pen pal. I’m half Tonga, half Irish. Reply to Herbie Logan #BH5504, VSP, B-1-28-4L, PO Box 92, Chowchilla, CA 93610

A lonely, Christian MD (medical doctor), incarcerated, seeks pen-pals of any age/race/sex/class/status. Hobbies: making friends, helping people, the outdoors, swimming, golf, writing, drawing & painting, dancing, and movies. Music: country music, modern rock, oldies, classical, jazz. Why in prison? I believe that honesty is the best policy, so I’m going to tell you all about my case when you decide to write. For now, if you like the conspiracy theory about Dr. Sam Shepard in the real-life drama “Fugitive”, you’d love my story. No, I’m not here for rape, so you can relax. I’m not here for drugs, either. I have been framed just like Dr. McDonald, and my case involves love, drama and murder. Life in prison? It’s difficult for anyone who has never been there to understand the terror and loneliness that sweeps over you when the steel doors of prison clang shut behind you. Letters and moral support (such as visits) are the two most important things for prisoners. I really need your help and prayer. I am a totally 100% innocent man! God answered the prayer after 30 long years of being falsely accused and imprisonment – the real killer wants to confess. But, there is one problem here: the Prosecutor does not want to admit that a miscarriage of Justice has been made because it will reflect on his political and professional image. Sincerely waiting for your earliest response. Ellis A. Chen, MD #D95889, CMF, N-101, PO Box 2000, Vacaville, CA 95696

Greetings – I have been trying to obtain support from Black writers regarding the concealing of evidence which I have recorded at my links. Briefly, I was given 48 years as an alleged second car driver. However, the law clearly instructs all courts that an alleged second car driver cannot be found guilty nor held liable as an aider and abetter, People v. Cooper (1991) 53 Cal. 1166 at 1168. Now the courts are playing games knowing I’m incarcerated under a theory of law that does not exist and me and my family are being put through these obstacles in hopes that I die in prison behind these intentional acts of fraud by the District Attorney et al., who intentionally misled the jury “upon a created theory of law that exceeds all the elements of the crime”. I also have federal judges concealing exhibits that I submitted to the court as statements of fact, a valid complaint that admits a class action violation of maintaining an inadequate law library. The federal judge declared the complaint I filed as “dirty laundry” and I have been blocked out of court based upon the evidence of misconduct against public officials, acts to prevent liability. I don’t have access to the internet and these concerted acts of concealment are well known by staff and inmates as acts of “the green wall”. Me and my family need help and national attention.

Hi, my name is Jackson Limose. I’m 35 years old, a first generation Haitian American born and raised in Orlando, FL. I’m 5’10, 165 slim muscular built, dark skinned, dark brown eyes, low cut with waves. I have a couple of tattoos, all in acceptable places. I love to learn anything that I can because I’m a firm believer that you can never know enough and you never know when what you’ve learned may come in handy. I’m not big on fiction and urban novels because there’s no substance in a lot of them. I love to travel, work out, play chess, learn about history, other countries, and of course I love sports, football being my favorite. I’m a very understanding individual, very outspoken and a very attentive listener. If I want to know something, I have no problem with asking and I wish a lot of people in the world (or at least around me) would do the same because the only dumb question is the one that was never asked. My favorite quote is: “Patience is a virtue, good things come to those who wait”. I’m looking to meet a goal-oriented woman who knows herself and what she wants and needs in life, a woman that’s level headed and open to get to know me and allow me to get to know her. Race and age doesn’t matter at all to me. Thank you for your time. I can be emailed at or by mail at Jackson Limose #167944, JCI, 5563 10th Street, Malone, FL 32445

My name is Bobby Hazel. I am a 64 year old prisoner who is serving an illegal sentence pertaining to a conviction for murder, in which the United States Government officials and former defense lawyer have conspired with one another to conceal exculpatory evidence, a videotape that will exonerate me of the murder. The videotape was referenced in a letter that a defense lawyer forwarded to the prosecutor and other defense lawyers saying that he would make copies for inspection. The letter was never forwarded to me. After discovering the letter, I filed a motion to the court to compel the government to release the videotape. After many frustrating derailments I was informed the Department of Justice had found the documents and instructing the FBI to release the videotape – two years ago the FBI contacted me saying my request is on a waiting list. I need donations and assistance in retaining an attorney to pursue justice. I am in imminent danger due to my health deteriorating. Any and all legal help and friendship is appreciated.

Greetings World!!! My name is James Ingram, but my friends call me Jay or J-Rock. Being in prison sometimes brings a person to areas in life they normally will not visit. It can either bring the best or worst out of him if he isn’t strong enough to endure the many obstacles that plague his very existence. I consider myself one of the strong, because I refused to allow my past to determine my future. In addition, I have learned to appreciate the smallest things in life. I enjoy reading, working out, writing poetry, and writing. I also like to have long conversations about life while getting to know all about the person I’m talking to, which I believe is key to building a solid foundation in any friendship. I’m a good listener because through listening you can be more helpful. My life is an open book, I have no regrets with any of my past decisions. In fact I embrace them, because that’s what helped define the man I am today. If you’re looking for someone that’s honest and want to experience the true meaning of happiness, I’m your man!! I’m not here to judge you, only to make things better in your life. Every dream, wish, want, and more is here on this page!! So can we be friends? Email me at (please make sure you send your address and picture) or write me at James Ingram #454631, RCC, 27268 Highway 21, Angie, LA 70426

Broken Heart and Lonely. Hello, my name is Franklin Church, W/M, 5’10”, 180 lbs, brown hair & eyes, ex-fire fighter/EMT for 20 yrs. I lost my mother & father in a house fire in Jacksonville, Florida. I’m a member of the Christian Unity Church here at Angola, I’m head Deacon. I have been behind bars since 2010. I’ve had Post-Conviction Relief in District Court since 2015 with 9 claims of Double Jeopardy. I have filed all my appeals pro-se, as I have no family or support from outside. I have not had a visit from anyone since I have been behind bars. I work as an electrician in maintenance here, I have a hobby shop box that I use to make hand-made jewelry. God is a BIG part of my life, I give thanks to him everyday for his Grace to stay alive. I don’t get mail, I was married for 24 yrs to a lady who got remarried a year after I came to prison, she said she could not be alone!! I’m intelligent, honest, understanding and fun-loving. I’m looking for a free spirit woman to communicate or connect with. My heart has been broken wide open so I have trust problems which I have been working on with God’s help. If I had just a little help from the outside, or a pro bono lawyer that would be willing to sign onto my Post-Conviction Relief, I really believe I would be out. Email me at or write Franklin Church #613285, LSP, 17544 Tunica Trace, Angola, LA 70712

First off, let me start by saying I believe one of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand, and to be understood. That being said, I’m posting this ad to discover new possibilities. What you should know about me is this: I love to laugh and try new things. I strive to life my life to the fullest each and every day, with attitude of gratitude and appreciation for the many blessings in my life. I believe life is all about the moments we make so I spend a great deal of my time dedicated to growing both spiritually and mentally. I’m ambitious, driven and passionate about art and music, though I’m physically inside a cell and recognize my reality for what it is. I do my best to escape this bleak environment through my creative processes. The truth is prison can be a very dark and lonely place so I guess you can say I’m searching for someone who can show me something different and give me something to believe in. I would like nothing more than to create a genuine, caring connection with someone who can truly appreciate all I have to offer. If I’m someone you would like to get to know, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line, just to say hello.

LIFE IS A GIFT…LET’S OPEN IT UP TOGETHER! Hi! My name is Sheldon Eugene Thompson. These days, I believe that people get so caught-up attempting to find the “Perfect Thing” to say instead of just being themselves. What do you think? I’m interested in developing a meaningful friendship with someone as myself: Politically incorrect, loyal, compassionate, down-to-earth, and willing to get lost for hours in an eloquent dialogue discussing things that others tend generally to not comprehend. I’m a fiction/non-fiction, short-story, poetry, and essay writer whose life at times seems to be a mosaic of philosophies, quirks, and mistakes. If you could describe me in one word I suppose that it would be “deep” because I’m never afraid to enter into those emotionally and mentally challenging areas we often find ourselves in. My writing is something that I’m always seeking inspiration and ideas for to expand my scope and creativity. What about you? I enjoy reading, sports, travel, comparative religion, metaphysics, alchemy, and good Ice Cream! All replies welcome via (please include address) or snail mail. #GloriousConquest! Sheldon E. Thompson #01282227, Estelle Unit, 264 FM 3478, Huntsville, TX 77320-3322

To my down-to-earth, God-fearing future wife: If you are reading this, know that sometimes a person doesn’t know what they were missing until they have it. Personally, I believe that it was pre-ordained for you to be reading this at this particular moment in time. My name is Tyrone, but my family calls me Ty. I’m 6’4” and weigh 225 lbs with a lean, athletic build. I love playing basketball and enjoy working out, especially yoga. At 33 years of age, I’m wise, well-read, and forward thinking. I’m in college because I am a life-long learner focused on progress and results. I’m also a Christian who endorses loving and serving people outside the faith community in hope that experiencing Christ’s love will lead them to Him. I’m a people builder. Furthermore, my momma taught me how to love and treat a woman. I’m a Texas boy with a heart the size of Texas. When I was a teenager, I bought into a false ideal of manhood. Consequently, I and a group of people committed a few robberies. I’m eligible for parole in February 2021. I look forward to talking more, corresponding, and sharing life. God bless. Tyrone Simmons #1892355, Hughes Unit, Route 2, Box 4400, Gainesville, TX 76597
