Hi there, I’m hoping to meet some new friends. I love to write letters and meet new people. Should you consider becoming my pen friend, here are some things I can promise for you: a heart that understands and doesn’t judge; a man you can trust; a supporting shoulder to cry on; a man that will devote time to you alone. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in then don’t hesitate to write me. Seeking 40+ mature people. I am 47 years of age. I’m searching for a meaningful and lasting friendship, snail mail pen pals, and possibly more if the stars align. Yours for future happiness, Mark Avrett #01548315, Powledge Unit, 1400 FM 3452, Palestine, TX 75803

Greetings – I’m in search of a friend who would be willing to correspond with me. I deal with the same people around me who want to lie, cheat, gossip, and practice many other forms of evil in the den of iniquity; my present incarceration causes me a limitation in access to those I can have inspirational uplifting conversations with. So my search is in essence for someone who will accept me as a friend. I understand that there will be times when I will need the value of a friend, there will also be times when I could offer kind words and prayers for others, I would love to share with others. I have tried numerous websites for prisoners to obtain penpals but I have no luck, I’ve been discouraged because the replies I have received have not been from the type of people I’m looking for! I’m 47 years old. Anyone wishing to contact me may do so by writing to me at: Frazier Crockett #N84966, PO Box 1000, Menard, IL 62259 or email http://www.gtl.net/ilstate

What’s poppin world! My name’s Kenny, I’m 28, a single Caucasian from Mendocino County. I love music, watching Raiders games and meeting new people. I love to laugh and make people laugh.

Hi, my name is Joe Lamb. I’m a 37 years young white male, 5’11, 175 lbs. Medium physique with lots of tattoos. Have a great sense of humor. I was born and raised in Florida and now I find myself alone and solitarily isolated and incarcerated in the state of Louisiana. I am a humanitarian. I am seeking support, communication, and maybe the opportunity to voice what I’m going through in hope to keep other people from making the mistakes that I have. I’m serving 10 years for a meth lab and possession of stolen property. Since my incarceration my loved ones (mother, aunt, fiancé) have all passed away and everyone else has turned their backs on me. Would love to share more of my story and life experiences with you. Maybe share some pictures. Joe Lamb #631737, RCC, 27268 Highway 21 North, Angie, LA 70426

If you are looking for a fun and adventurous man with a great sense of humor, then look no more! I’ve lived an alternative lifestyle, which really checks no one box, but dances around them all. I have very strong core family values and believe in loyalty and being real and true. I hold myself to a higher standard than most. I have a love for music and the outdoors. I’m still a kid at heart and believe in giving more than I receive. I put forth great effort to bring smiles and cheer to those around me and hopefully I’ll get the chance to do the same for you. All I need is your name and address. I promise 2 respond 2 every letter. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, John Anderson #3507472, MOCC, 1 Mountainside Way, Mount Olive, WV 25185

I am an African-American man. I am 47 years of age. My date of birth is May 21, 1971; thus born under the astrological sign of Gemini. I hail from the beautiful city of Memphis, Tennessee; however, I now reside in Dallas, Texas. I am a certified paralegal; and prior to incarceration, I owned and operated Cowboys Paralegals in Dallas. I am college educated. I graduated from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio with a major in Business Administration. I also attended Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi. I am presently enrolled in Lee College, pursuing a degree in Microcomputer Applications. I am seeking an academic degree and technical degree. Upon release, I fully intend on reopening my company, Cowboys Paralegals. I am loquacious, an avid reader, and computers pique my interest; I also play chess, work out, enjoy playing basketball and all manner of sports. I am a dog lover and I enjoy the finest things in life, such as walks in the parks, museums, wine tasting, movies (Netflix, Hulu, etc.), cooking and quiet evenings with a special someone. I am looking for and interested in meeting someone with similar and complementary interests. I am scheduled to meet the parole board next year. The person I am interested in is witty, intelligent, loyal, professional and educated. If she loves the Struggle, that’s an A+. Looks are not important, but a loving personality and heart is. Praying that this letter will suffice to galvanize that special someone, I am and I remain sincerely yours, Sammie Netter Jr., #2019504, Wynne Unit, 810 FM 2128, Huntsville, TX 77349

Hey, don’t just stop by and move on, feel free to speak and converse. I don’t bite! A little conversation can tend to lighten up anyone’s life, yours and mine. My name is Isaias but I go by SHI-MEEK. I was born in Houston, TX. I’m 24 years young. I’m 5’8, Mexican, 190 lb. I am currently incarcerated and have a 60 year sentence but should be going home soon. So I decided maybe I could write this ad to write someone. A stranger, someone I know nothing about. Only because I like getting to know new people, learning every little detail I can get. You never know what you might find. Just know I’m perfectly fine with being upfront and forward with you. I’m very blunt as well as respectful. I’m like a book in a library allowing myself to be read. I’m also not the type of person to judge anyone, because who am I to do so? To judge would be like judging myself, because you are a reflection of self. I’m very conversation friendly and look at life as teachings and opportunities for one’s own self growth and development. What I’m looking for mostly is communication, being able to talk with someone who doesn’t mind communicating and being a friend. The attributes of a person on the inside is what I look at. Friendship is a bond and loyalty is everything. But let’s change that stranger part into a friend. I can be your ear of comfort and understanding and your voice of reasoning in time of need. If you ever need someone to talk to or just express those thoughts you can always write me and we can chop and swap the dose with one another. Yesterday was history, tomorrow’s a mystery, and today is a gift. That is why they call it the present. You never know what you might find in the person you are speaking and conversing with or in life itself. P.E.A.C.E. TO THE TRUE AND LIVING. Isaias Arellano #02032533, JB Connally Unit, 899 FM 632, Kenedy, TX 78119

My name is Alvin Stanley. I’m 34 years old, 6 foot 1, 190 pounds, an African American lite skinned male from Virginia Beach, Virginia. I’m currently incarcerated in the Georgia Department of Corrections. I’m looking for a strong Christian woman that I can be compatible with. I’ve made some wrong decisions in my life that have landed me in prison, but I can honestly say that I am a changed man and I’m very sincere about my transformation. So if there is a strong Christian woman looking for a man who is going to support them 100% at anything they do, I’m the person to invest their time into. I have a great family support system so I do not need you financially at all. I do not have that much time left in prison and I plan on doing something productive with my life Lord willing. If you must know I’m a certified HVAC tech, electrician, landscaper, and can actually build a house by reading any blueprint, my family’s real estate business has enabled me to achieve such a thing. I also love sports and I enjoy helping others. So if three’s a strong Christian woman looking for a strong Christian man who is going to accomplish great things in life, I’m definitely what you have been looking for. God Bless and thank you for taking time out to read this profile. Sincerely, Alvin G. Stanley #1001077008, BSP, PO Box 218, Hardwick, GA 31034

Peace and Blessings to all the beautiful women of Allah’s creation. My name is Khalifah Ali. I’m a 31 year old black Muslim male standing at 5’10, 190 lbs, brown eyes, and pretty straight white teeth. I’m born and raised from the east side of Savannah Georgia. I’m currently serving a life sentence of a railroad conviction. Right now I’m at my Federal Habeas Corpus stage, and plan to get some type of relief there, Insha Allah (God willing). I’m now 11 years in. But this time doesn’t define who I really am. I’m very intelligent, funny, kind, loving, honest, and most of all loyal. I’m just looking for a woman that I can correspond with and become good friends, or maybe more; that shares similar characteristics. I’m willing and able to be that listening ear that a woman may not only want, but need in your life at times. I have a fetish for women with braces, pretty eyes, and pretty feet. I’m looking for a woman between the ages of 30 and 50. I’m really into older women, but I’m open to all “legal” ages and all races. I’m not really into skinny women, I like thick to plus size women. I like a woman that’s confident but not arrogant, open minded, intelligent, honest, and loyal. I don’t know if I’m able to receive prison to prison mail, but I’m open to all women. If you fit inside these categories I’ll like to hear from you. Who knows…our interest might unfold to a better understanding.

Hello I am a 46 year old white male, good looking, in shape, looking for friendship – if more can come then let it be. But more than that I am an inventor. I have some ideas that I know will make millions of dollars. I am looking for an investor, someone that knows how to get patents and get ideas going. Daymond John or Lori Greiner are two people that can help. So if you’re someone reading this that can help me get in to contact with them that is who can help. I understand nothing is free in this world but I’m willing to share, all you got to do is help me get my idea out there. Yes I’m in prison, I’m go up for parole Oct 2018 so I should be out soon. I am from Kansas City, Missouri. If I could find someone close to there it would help but I have no tie to nowhere. If you send me a pic you must do so in an envelope by itself, no letter or anything else can be with the pic. I will answer all letters then go from there. But for real I need someone to help me jump start my ideas. Thanks. Gary Riddle #367116, JCCC, 7-D-112, 8200 No More Victims Road, Jefferson City, MO 65101

Hi – my name is Eric. I’m 53 years old, born and raised in good ole Kentucky. I’m a Taurus who’s looking for a woman who’s honest, open-minded, humble, has an “attitude of gratitude”, and is interested in a long-term relationship. Someone who cares more about actions than words when it comes to love. A country gal who knows all about country living, food, etc. Looks and age don’t really matter, I’m more concerned about the heart. They saw you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but I’m learning them every day. I’m involved in an intense program that challenges us to become better people. I love riding motorcycles and enjoy going to bike events like Sturgis, Daytona, Myrtle Beach, Panama City and other activities. I believe in treating a woman like a goddess, and I’m very protective of her. I can’t stand to see a woman get mistreated. If you had kids, that’s great. I love kids. I’m a big kid myself. A perfect night involves taking my woman out to eat, maybe a long walk on the beach or in the park, come back and sit in the hot tub, just her and I and Mr. Bubble 😊 Just relax and tell her how special she is to me. Other interests I enjoy are swimming, sunbathing, dancing, building houses, working on motorcycles. I pray this profile will touch one of you ladies and you’ll drop me a line or two. Roses are red, violets are blue, if you will love me I’ll be true. Love & respect, Eric Cutchens #14130-021, FCC USP Coleman 2, PO Box 1034, Coleman, FL 33521

Dearest Lady-Friend Reader – I’m very happy that you’re reading about me and deciding whether or not to bless me with some of your precious time. I will be most delighted…however, I hope only to attract a certain type of woman. I’d like to talk with a Grown woman, not some girl trapped in a woman’s body, or who refuses to embrace maturity. I also must operate on total honesty. Should matter arise that are best not spoken about, I can accept being told that but what is shared must be absolute truth. I would be pleased with someone who is in and values her own personal relationship with God. I believe that we have a lot to offer someone as man & woman of God. Nevertheless, I am a 39 year old adventurous, high spirited, and self motivated man…let’s take a journey together and enjoy what the universe creates.

Hello, my name is ROOSEVELT & I’m taking this space to introduce myself in hopes of finding a good friend to build something real with. (Woman only.) I was raised with standards based on love, respect & loyalty, however, after losing everything & landing in a prison cell I realized that I gave all that to the wrong people & ended up selling myself short but at 37 years old I have grown & with a second chance I’ll like to make friends that is worthy of my love, respect & loyalty. I’m seeking companionship where I can share my thoughts, feelings & ideals with someone that’ll do the same. Having a friendship is something that I value so if you decide to get to know me you’ll know that I’m not looking to play games nor manipulate; I will value your time as if it was my own because while you can get material things back you will never get time back so as we build our friendship I hope that you’ll look back years from now & feel good about the time we spend together. I have many interests & will try most things once, I limited myself before but now I’m open for new experiences & creating memories & that starts now with this profile & you giving me a chance. If you’re open to write me don’t let nothing stop you; your looks, race, religion doesn’t matter to me, just your friendship matters! God Bless!

    I have been sentenced to a disproportional amout of time (75 years) for arm robbery. Although I am optimistic to eventually overcome this, it is what it is and every day is a struggle. Nevertheless: strong I remain. My faith in my self has never wavered. I am 36 years young, born June 9th 1972. Although I am open to relating and exchanging with someone about life, I’d be happy if someone could assist me on the creative side. I do portraits.

    Rob just turned 21 on 3/8. He just doesn’t belong where he’s at. His family lives in Georgia, hundreds of miles away. His paternal grandparents see him every few months. His parents are divorced and make all kinds of promises to him such as that they’ll visit but they don’t. He’s been in jail since he was 19. He looks like a sweet kid but he sure has lived a hard life. He suffered with leukemia from a small child until it went into remission when he was 14.

  2. Thanks for posting this, it is so important and rewarding for both to correspond with and befriend someone in (or outside) prison. It is also very important for healing society, and many need help to be redeemed.

  5. This message is for meaty..I lost the closest very best friend I ever had to worthlessness sum years back I no longer know what is is to have a real friend anymore, after being repeatedly betrayed by imposters w/ an agenda posing to be friends I safeguarded my heart thinking Im better off without a so-called ” friend” now with nothing more than a couple acquaintances I find myself wishing I had some one to talk to, someone to confide in for advice or gentle constructive criticism. other then myself, I didn’t know a person of the sort still exsisted. more and more everyday I long with every fiber of my being to be reunited with genuine friendship..I miss you. We miss you..I never stopped loving you. And happy birthday…

  6. I wish the best for all of you.. Please remember to seek God for help. If God has the power to make man to make the ocean Etc he surley can help us and make things happen as we strive to draw close to him. James 4:8 says Draw close to God, and he will draw close to YOU
    Take care and I pray and wish you well.

  9. My husband is in here! I'm devestated! My friend didn't trust him so she looked for him on prison pen pal sites. His name is Alvin Jones 881507. I can't believe this is happening to me! There is no explanation for this!

  10. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested
    to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  16. Any women who would like a pen-pal please write to Marco Germano 395 Halsey Street Apartment#303 Newark, New Jersey 07102 email marcogermanox8@gmail.com

    Will respond to all letters and/or emails . My friends and myself all understand what it’s like to be locked up and how important it is to have contact with the outside world. I hope to make some friends and help make some ladies day a little better .Who knows maybe I can’t find that special woman because they got her locked up and now we can find each other. Truth is I know how much it sucks being locked up and all those great friends are to busy to write and end up forgetting about you .I’m not looking to be anyone’s sugar daddy and I don’t need any girls trying to sell me a dream .I’m a laidback homie that saw these posts for pen-pals and I remembered that pain of being locked up and how much it meant to have any homegirl on the streets drop me a letter .One time I gor a letter from this woman who was a friend of a friend’s friend! We ended up writing once a week for 2 years until she got married .She never sold me a dream but she did show me love and respect .Our letter were like two friends kicking it at the bar or at the park talking about dumb stuff but always able to bring up deep stuff when needed .5 years later and her and her husband are friends here on the streets.

    I believe only people who have been locked up for a couple years or more can understand our hearts and our souls. Only we can relate to the pain, being lonely, and damage the system tries to inflict on us .So it’s only us who can help, comfort, and sometimes save another from the system .

    So ladies drop me a letter and I will write you back. Maybe we’ll become friends, maybe lovers, or maybe we’ll end up saving each other. I also have friends who I can introduce to you.

    All my love and respect, Marco

    P.s. Myself and anyone who I might introduce to you has been to prison for various crimes. That said I guarantee No Sex Offense, No Child cruelty, No women beaters, No Stalkers, and no other gross creepy crimes. We expect the same from you .

  17. I write to any female in good faith an in hopes that someone special would like to correspond with me as time allows them to do so. I was going to write the perfect fantasy introduction of myself but found that doing that would be an oddity and somewhat of a ridiculous task. I'm 31 years of age, SBM 6 ft and 165 lbs. I'm willing to write to a down to earth female with a positive and respectful conversation. I'm looking for the female with the changed life with a story to tell. Female inmates are encouraged to write as well. I hope to hear from you soon.

  18. With everything which appears to be building inside this area, all your perspectives are generally somewhat exciting. However, I beg your pardon, because I do not give credence to your whole theory, all be it exciting none the less. It would seem to me that your commentary are actually not totally justified and in actuality you are generally your self not fully confident of the argument. In any event I did take pleasure in reading through it.
