Yes but due to the circumstances, I will probably never see him again until his release date. (If we regain contact)

I have been with my MWI for 16 years no contact and we are waiting any day for that green suit to changed to blue then he can have contact visits.

I think I will be a bawling mess when I get to finally touch him. I hope they don't have to pry me off of him. ha,ha, ha.....

Yes I have. I made a plan. She had to be close to my age, she had to be getting out within two years and, she had to be in the same or a neighbouring state to make visitation easier. I vist once a month and have for the last six months

I so truly understand the distance part. I have been with my MWI for almost 3yrs. in February. But I do get to have a video visit once a week through JPAY . I just look at it as it's better than nothing. At least I do get to see him some kind of way.

I have never read a post here til' yours admitting that it is much nicer than meeting him inside and how you're glad you did wait. That sound like 1 of my friends who met this way (mwi) like you.

That's very nice to read." My friend waited to meet her MWI" i recall on the outside. She never went to see him even if she desire to so bad for a while.They are still together.(he went back on a parole violation) she is waiting for him and happier than ever. Them two are solid."

So both agreed it was better on the outer, than in prison. My other BFF met her MWI while inside but took a long time though.Now,she not with him but will be if he is as wonderful she say on the "outside" (she dumped him) after seeing him smh all premise on being frighten like hell that next winter early part of 2017(feb/march) that he will dump her/hurt her when release.")that was her way of dealing with not being hurt again as her several past relationships.
But he is a great guy but i get why she feel she need to be this way."

Hell yes and it was awesome. Only been friends for about 1,5 years but went to see him on my way to my final vacation spot in April (I'm in Europe and he's in NC). We had visits 2 days in a row and it was great. After I left I cried my eyes out, I wanted so to take him with me...

Omg that's so funny I met my MWI on our one year anniversary too back in November!! Would have been sooner than that but I met him when I was 18 and where he's incarcerated you have to be 19 to visit by yoursel so we had to wait till then but after our first visit I visited every single visit and I love it!

Been together for 8 months, haven't met yet but it's in the planning. A recent ticket caught up with him so now the visits were scrapped, only no contact visits until 1/18/17. So, I will visit him next year I suppose and we'll have to cuz he'll get out shortly after that

Does seeing each other through video count as meeting face to face ?


We've been at this for 1,5 years...first friends, then fell in love. He hasn't had the privilege of visits in all this time, plus I haven't really had the opportunity to travel either, so nope. It is hard..and it feels harder now than a year ago - but we have less than a year to go and I've saved up for my trip already, so I'll see him when he gets out in 6-10 months. Can't wait !

No I haven't met him yet, I known of him thru other people and living in the same town but didn't get to know him til he was in went to prison. We have been talking for over a year now, but didn't make it official til 2 months ago. We plan on meeting last month but my motor went out in my truck, so we will be planning on meeting very soon within the next 2 months or so.

I haven't because we're in different states. I know, double whammy...incarceration and distance. But nothing is "official" yet, I just like him a lot and sometimes I feel like he flirts a little. I guess we'll see what happens...

Darlazs...I'm a guy and I do similar as you. I got back to exercising and I'm not going to say I'm on a diet but I'm eating healthier. I still eat everything I did before...but all things in moderation. I've lost 35 lbs. so far and have another 20+ to go. I've been working at it for a year now. She's worth the effort. If she wasn't worth the effort, then I've found the wrong woman and I need to move on.
