I love making new friends. I’m an avid reader and storyteller, and the best stories involve, and are centered around, people. I’d love to hear your stories. I’ve been told I’m a great listener, and you’ve got a captive audience. It’s a recipe for success. About me: I’m an eclectic music lover, though I lean towards female artists like Sia and Lady Gaga. I’ve been a certified paralegal since 2018. I’m a Chicago sports fan, and thus have grown comfortable with low expectations and mediocrity as an overarching reality. I’m athletic and love playing soccer. I work out routinely but not religiously (yes, I really am 6’3”, 215). I’ve been a gamer my entire life, although I’ve missed quite a bit since my incarceration. I’m fairly liberal with my use of language, so I hope you’re not offended by bad words. I’m a well-educated and sophisticated nerd who’s not above having a lightsaber fight if the occasion strikes. I think the bottom line for me is that I love having fun and laughing and joking and hanging out with good, fun-loving people. I’ve had so much negativity in my life, and I’m ready for some positivity. If you are, too, I’d love to hear from you. I should warn you, I’m practicing social distancing, so please stay at least six feet away while writing your letter. I find a selfie stick with a pen taped to the end to be very useful. Thanks for reading. Stay safe. Jason

Hello my name is Toine, I’m looking to meet new people and make new friendships. I’ve been in prison for the last 12 years with little to no connection to the free world. I pray everyday I will receive some mail or an e-mail so I won’t feel lonely, lost or separated from the world. Sadly I hardly ever receive anything. Having a good friendship would give me hope there is a connection out there for me to make without being judged by my past. I’ve worked hard improving my life while I’ve been incarcerated to show my past actions should not define who I am today. I have a good heart, spirit and a good sense of humor. I just need to meet a good woman to show I am not a lost soul and forgotten In prison. It’s harder to do time without a connection with a queen to share my thoughts and have good vibes with so I hope and pray you can open your heart to giving me a chance. I’d love to meet you and get to know you and hopefully we can brighten up each other’s days. You can sign up so we can e-mail each other at www.connectnetwork.com. If you can’t find me type in Illinois Department of Corrections as the facility I’m in. Be safe out there.

Blessings Queen.

Hi, my name’s Arnold. First and foremost, allow me this moment to express my gratitude, and thank you for devoting your time to my page. As I’m sure you can imagine, “prison is a lonely place”, so I’m taking this time to reach out. I love to write letters and I’d love to correspond with you. I’m searching for a meaningful and lasting friendship, [maybe more]. “You’re now invited”. This invitation is for you, that special woman who understands what it is like to be alone. It’s you that knows exactly what you’re feeling. Let’s together ease the pain and find some happy moments. Permit a single brother, such as myself, who is incarcerated, to take you to a place less confined, where the beauty of friendship exist. Unless you respond, we will never know or enjoy the rich relationship that we both were created to enjoy. I was once told, “strangers are just friends awaiting to happen” and now that it has happened, answer my request and together let’s celebrate our discovery. “Do understand, to me Integrity is more important than looks, age, or weight.” Also, your nationality is of no importance to me. Why? because I want to really get to know [you], from the inside out. If my invitation intrigue your desire, and / or curiosity, then by all means, do not hesitate any longer to send me a message so we can become acquainted. “In conclusion: Get at me and claim your diamond in the rough.

Once, while I was searching, I came across a great book. It was there hidden amongst hundreds of others. The cover was tattered and torn, marked up and scarred. It looked as though it had been around the block a time or two and was well used. Maybe even a little disreputable looing. But, there was something intriguing.

I’m an optimistic and adventures type, so I picked it up and gave it a shot. In doing so I found hours of entertainment, enlightenment, sorrow and joy. It has since been my go to for answers to many of life’s questions, both secular and spiritual.

My life has been forever changed by my decision to take a chance on the unknown and read that battered up book.

I compare myself to that book. Tatted up and torn marked up and scarred yes, I’ve been around the block a time or two myself. Here I am, waiting amongst hundreds of others for someone to take a chance. You may be surprised what you find under the cover.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Well it’s like this. I’m a man looking for a special woman who knows what she wants in life. And can help me find love. I know I’m at a clear disadvantage. Due to my circumstance of being incarcerated. I would love to meet a woman who can look past the incarceration and get to know me as the man I’ve grown to become. Even in jail I enjoy life. I will do my best and give you my all if you let me. Because I want all of you, the highs and lows. I need something solid in my life! And I hope you feel the same too. We both have to want something solid for it to work. I got locked up at the age of 26, and I’m now 40, and I can honestly say I never gave my all to a woman before. I look at life differently now, and would love to fall in love and just let go. I want to be the one who puts a smile on your face when you wake up and when you go to sleep. I know I’m missing love in my life. What about you? Go to: connectnetwork.com, download the free app and sign up.

Greetings,

I appreciate you taking time to look beyond these questionable circumstances! It’s by design that I find myself before my thoughts. In expressing these words, I hope to make my presence known and memorable to you! I’ve never been good at soliciting attention but I respectfully share with you my written “Hello,” urging you to form an initial impression as to who I am now; loyal, respectful, dignified and a truthful man. You could say I’m an open book. Well, you could think of me as your personal dictionary, but one that writes back! I am a youthful and vibrant person with energetic spirit and personality that would enjoy making someone laugh. I reach out to you beautiful ladies because not only have I lost touch with society, but (equally important) also articulate ladies!

With due honesty, I am interested in ladies who are honest, sweet and smart and willing to share their personalities sincerely. Most importantly, their genuine sense of humor. I’m a Latino who speaks English and Spanish, but I am building to entertain all other languages and cultures. I’ll take pleasure in aiming to please!

I read, draw, work out and listen to music of all varieties. I live with a heavy emphasis on making art in my spare time and pursuing my education as well. I simply ask that you take this opportunity to open your mind and take a chance on knowing me! Let this page stand as a genuine expression of trying to establish a friendship; where we, as mature adults, can share a few thoughts, exchange a few words of encouragement and laugh with one another. In the process if a relationship were to occur then let’s shoot for the stars!

There can be no accomplishment without risk!

Hello,

My name is Jarvis Jackson, I am 5’8” and in excellent shape. I love to write, email, play sports, read vigorously, and enjoy that someone’s company.

During my incarceration, I haven’t lost the ability to appreciate the good in a lady or life. That’s why I am seeking a lady friend or more. I have a conscious of a pleasing emotion for a lady with courtesy. So, I’m hoping to give you that change in life and vice versa. So, please do understand that I am vulnerable, in a sense, as I take this leap of faith by offering myself in friendship and looking for that one true friend, a natural woman inside and out to establish a positive line of communication. And, in return, I can only give you what I have which is a sense of self and honest consciousness of who I am as a man.

If you’re reading this, I’m assuming my picture must have somewhat intrigued you, so I’m going to start by telling you a little about myself. For starters, my name is Thaddeus AKA Thad. I’m 49 years old. I was born and raised on the west side of Chicago. I’m a cool, laidback person. I’ve got a good sense of humor, I can be funny at times, I’m also down to earth and easy to talk too and can pretty much hold a conversation and get along with anyone as long as they are 100% honest and genuine, that’s what matters most to me, not looks.

To get to the point, I’m just looking for someone who is great company and be a friend to me, someone to talk to and support me mentally and emotionally, hopefully we can vibe and build a bond with one another and as far as race and things of that nature, doesn’t really hold any weight to me. So if you’re interested in spending the last 20 months of my sentence getting to know more about me, feel free to reach out.
