Friendship

Hello,

My name is Jamal. I’m currently in federal prison for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Since I’ve been in federal prison I have obtained my GED and multiple vocational trades. I am seeking friends that I can build a positive friendship with that will continue on the outside. I was raised by my grandmother. I am a God fearing man. I love to read my bible and my daily bread. I have two brothers and one sister. I am the oldest. I am very loyal, funny and love to have a great time. I have a big heart. I love to work out, play basketball and read books. My hobbies are traveling, riding dirt bikes, working out and sports events. I’m interested in a friend that I can build a solid connection with. My concerns are what I can put into a friendship, not what I can get out of it. I can contribute honesty, fun, enlightenment, enjoyment, happiness and peace. I have changed for the better. I am interested in a friendship that we can build a foundation to better ourselves mentally, spiritually and emotionally. I am very open minded, easy to get along with. I am not a boring person. I love to have fun. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Our greatest failure is not our mistake no matter how severe the consequence. But if we learn nothing from it… THAT will be our greatest failure.

Hello, I’m Shadow. I’m an optimistic, compassionate, down-to-earth soul with a warm and pleasant personality who loves to inspire and be inspired. I enjoy crossword puzzles, meditating, yoga, journaling and competition-type reality TV shows.

Due to the nature of my crime I have been abandoned, rejected and shunned. So, this pen-pal ad is desperately seeking a compassionate, generous and open-minded soul who can “see” on a deeper level. Whether you are castigated or celebrated… gay or straight… dwarf or giant… your race… your shoe size, etc… I couldn’t care less. It’s quite unimportant to me. I’m more interested in your inner presence than your outer essence; quality over quantity.

Let’s communicate. No subject off limits. Help me grow and be better. So, if you want to share a fun-tastically new and exciting friendship in knowing me, then I am most definitely interested in the opportunity of knowing you. Please grace me with a letter by writing really, really soon. Have a great day filled with light, love and laughter! Bye for now and please stay safe!! FYI: Video visits and regular e-mail service available through this prison.

Hello, beautiful, yes you, beautiful, that’s taking the time out of your day to read this profile here on Inmate Connections. My name is Deontay, I’m 25 years old. Raised by a single mother, the second oldest of six. My hobbies are reading, working out, writing music, fishing, hiking, and the outdoors in general. I’m also interested in furthering my education while incarcerated, I’m now in school for law. I’m an honest, trustworthy, caring, compassionate, concerning, loyal man. I’m very outgoing and have a great sense of humor. I’m seeking the comfort of a woman for friendship and correspondence, as far as romance I’m open to it, someone who is willing to help me establish positive contacts on the outside world. A woman who is willing to give me time out of her day to build and get an amazing understanding of each other. I’m age open, race open. I recently just got back in Second Judicial District appeals court to give back time off these 51 years, just an update on my case. Until the date comes I will continue to work diligently and hope to re-enter society as a productive member and if you’re a woman on the go you can email me at ConnectNetwork app on your phone or .com, it takes 1-2 hours for me to get email and for you to get one back from me. Well beautiful thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon. Don’t be shy beautiful.

Hello hope as you read this you and your family are in the best of health and spirits with what we’re going through with -19. You already know my name so let me let you in on a little about me, got to save some for our letters. (LOL) Love to smile, know my photo doesn’t display this. Had to get it from a company, haven’t been able to take pictures. But like I was saying, love to smile and enjoy life and have fun. Love to watch sports and play them as well, like going to the beach, reading. Have been writing my first book which has been fun. Pride myself on honor, try to and be as forthright as possible with friends and family. Not into games and lies, there’s no way for us to grow with them. During this journey of the last 10 years I find myself reading the Bible and gaining the strength and knowledge that it gives us. Big rap music fan but will listen to all types. Would like to write you and see if we could build a friendship. I’ve not had much interaction with the outside world, had to work on myself, believe now I have something to offer you. Even if it’s an ear to listen or shoulder to lean on. Being so close to my release I need more than these walls. Hope you write and we become pals.

I am not going to sugarcoat my situation. This is a lonely place. It is as though the light and color just disappeared, and all that remains is darkness and gray tones. I’ve spent most of my time fighting my conviction. I have been lucky enough to obtain a paralegal degree. Because so many others in here have not been blessed to reach the same level of education, I try to help as many as I can to fight their conviction and other injustices committed by staff and the administration.

This has been hard on my mind and soul. I need someone to share my thoughts and feelings with. I am a man who understands how important it is to be heard. I want to be someone who hears you. I believe when someone shares something so intimate as their personal thoughts, we should listen.

One thing is true and that is happiness comes in many forms. I find it in communication. The world seems to be filled with people whom think of those confined as lessor than human. I have looked into staff’s eyes and seen it myself. That is a painful thing to behold.

I seek to grow a friendship built on truth, understanding and trust. It can be hard to try and explain how one can be surrounded by others 24 hours a day and yet be alone. This COVID-19 isolation may help some to relate to how prison feels.

If you’re a woman with some of the same goals in seeking a pen-pal, please put pen to paper and share your goals and ideas with me. You can also communicate by signing up to e-mail me at www.connectnetwork.com.

My motives are simple, I am seeking a true friend / significant other to focus my time on, in hopes of building a real bond. I have no ill intent, I only wish to share a personal relationship with a bright and intellectual person. I would like to share my personal views and ideology, I’m pretty sure I’d shock and surprise people. I have written several books, I love soft rock, country, rap, and classical music. I also have a passion for Turner classic movies. I find romance in most of those movies. I am open-minded to new experiences that grab my attention. My journey has not been smooth, life has given me extremely hard lessons that tuition could not pay for. I have gained knowledge, wisdom, and understand, which has helped me realize, I lack companionship. I just want a chance to display who I am.

I just want to say Hi to all ya’ll in the big world out there, best wishes to you with love and peace. For many years I wanted to get connected, but due to the complexity of my case, fear and rejection kept me from moving forward. Since then I’ve taken behavioral modification classes and counseling to attack issues, and use tools and thinking skills to prevent past behaviors, it has worked tremendously. I have good healthy relationships with friends and family. I’m well respected in different circles (congregation, working, staff), and just have an all around positive outlook. I finished school, and moved on to college with a 3.28 GPA. I have a passion for music, and listen to all genres. I like to dance and sing. Cooking is my trade, I’ve worked in the food service business for 14 years. A certificate in culinary arts and cosmetology are in the works. I’ve definitely been able to grow through my relationship with God. He’s given me guidance morally, and allowed me to love like never before. Of course I miss many of the prevalent things in life, getting dressed up and going out (dinner, club or a movie), or driving a car. So many of the little things we take for granted. I AM HERE SEEKING COMPANIONSHIP; someone to share the many pleasures of life with! I’m funny, but not complicated, romantic, but not soft; wise but humble; courageous, but careful. If you’re willing to open your world to meet then I’m up for the challenge. Being able to open up like this has allowed me to face my fears, and be transparent. Whatever the outcome is, I’m happy and satisfied with the effort that I put forth. I look forward to hearing from you soon, as we take BABY steps in this big journey of life.

Cordially Yours,

Let’s see if I can describe myself in a way uniquely me: I’m laidback and aggressive at the same time. Both funny and serious in the same body. Nature – mischievous. Armani and Bespoke, jeans and Nikes. Medium rare Wagyu, greasy cheeseburgers with grilled onions. A true renaissance man.

Please, call me Jamie. I’m an educated, 49 year old, 6’3″, 275, hard worker. Brown-eyed, dark haired (the gray is creepin’), neatly groomed beard, dimpled-crooked smile. I slow to anger, quick to smile, never abusive, owner of a great sense of humor. Not a user of people or drugs, the occasional drink. I’m just as cool hanging out at home cooking (’cause I’m like that in the kitchen) for you watching movies, spanking you in video games, laying on the floor quietly reading with you; as I am going out to a concert, movie, festival, Steppers Set (born and raised in Chicago, people), museum or gallery.

I’m attracted to a genuine, sweet, thoughtful, woman, with a beautiful heart as well as smile. I’m drawn to different shapes, sizes, shades, and styles. Just look in the mirror. It’s taken me a while to realize that, that good woman for me, will find me, not the other way around.

Hoping to hear from you, J.

P.S.

Always include your contact info, why leave it to chance?

Hello world! With all the craziness going on, I send my love and blessings to all the women out there who are still standing on their feet with independency, resilience, hard work, and dedication. I appreciate and admire all women because without you this world will be nothing. I am an extraordinary gentleman with goals and aspirations in life who is seeking to befriend any woman who is looking to enjoy quality time, who is looking to grow, who is looking for companionship, intimacy, a fresh start, fun, and an overall advancement in life. I’m looking for individuals who know how to be close or want to be close when there is distance between us, whether it’s friendship or relationship. Before I can seek a relationship, I have to seek friendship first! I have to get to know you and learn everything about you first, I have to be your friend first in order to be your man. I am a good listener, I am very understanding, and patient, there is nothing my friend or partner can’t overcome together. Thank you for reading and taking a look at me 🙂
