Default mrsa brought us together

I was his nurse. I had to pack his abcessed wound for two weeks in a row. We got to know each other through small talk and chit chat. We had so much in common. It felt so natural talking to him - unlike any other man in the prison or out. He would watch me while i took care of the other inmates. He said he liked to watch me work. When he was healed, I didn't see him for almost a month. I thought about him. Which was unusual for me to think about an inmate. Then I saw him out in the yard one day and he called to me and waved...
Several weeks later, he was back again with another abcess. This one a little worse, taking longer to heal. Again, more daily dressing changes. We started exchanging notes - which was wrong of me. We are so in love... long story short... i had to quit rather abruptly... sadly. i still love him though. My friends think I'm crazy for waiting for him. He has a few more years to go.

I met my MWI through PTO Card Swapping, purely by chance.

My husband and I met on an online dating site. Come to find out we went to high school together. I vaguely remember him because he was bad at school and I was a bookworm. We also found out I used to work with his Grandmother years ago. We grew up around the corner from each other and never really crossed paths until now. I believe God places people in your life at certain times in your life for a reason. 20 years ago, i was still being fast, i wasn't prepared to be anyone's wife. But, when God brought us together, we just flowed. I have a peace with my Husband, I've never experienced with any man. And it all makes sense, obviously everything is done in God's time, and He's always right on time.

I met my boyfriend on a phone service (the party line). I was looking for some to just talk to and not meet. He was looking for someone to talk to too. He liked my message. So, i send him a voice message. We started talking i loved his Southern voice and he loved my voice to.

His case is rather famous, for two reasons in particular. One of those reasons caused me to always want to know more. I followed his story/appeals, they all seemed to go nowhere. I never lost interest totally. Then I got word that juvenile LWOP supreme court ruling was going to cover all jlwop cases both old and new so I resumed my research on him. Again, it would end up with a few articles about the re sentencing and a rehashing of the crime. I was annoyed so I looked him up and was like "what gives, what is happening with your case?". I figured he'd toss my letter and never respond. Thankfully that didn't occur and here we are.

I followed his case since it was pretty publicized in my city. Although his crime was horrible, I knew that deep down he was very sincere and regretful for what he did. I reached out to him to offer my support and now we’re in love. It’s really hard. He has been all over our local media lately and people are downright evil with their comments. They don’t know the person that I’ve gotten to know so it hurts to see people say these truly messed up things.

We met over 2 years ago on a pen-pal site! Just recently one of the guys in his unit was trying to get him to join another site, but my guy said no way "when you find your car keys you don't keep looking" haha

I've been throwing this around for awhile now and have to ask..For those who have met there MWI online do you ever feel there maybe other ladies in his life that you don't know about? Does that ever come up in conversations? I'm sorry for asking but it's been in my mind for awhile..

We met as penpals and yes I have thought about it. Once we got in a r'ship he removed his ad - his choice not mine. After 5 years I don't think about it as much, only on down days but I trust him. We had a conversation about it before we married and he said that it would be easy for me to cheat on the streets as well but if you don't have trust you don't have anything and it's true.

My moms husband was in prison back in 98, and while there, he told my husband that he had someone he wanted him to meet/write. So we began writing back and forth. Married in 99, divorced in 2001 (too much to explain). Anyhow, I split up with an ex 2 1/2 yrs ago, on a whim decided to write him ( to let him know my step father had passed away) and we just picked up where we left off. I never quit loving him and kept track of him all these years. He's due to come home in June 18- hopefully sooner and we will again marry one last time ... this time, forever. :-) <3

I wrote to 3 inmates that I met through "meet an inmate" and "write a prisoner". The first one I wrote was the one that I fell for. I knew I should not have wrote the other two but I told myself "just in case the first one Tony didn't write back". Well he did write back. It was kind of messy that I wrote the other two but I did end it with both of them. And now I'm only writing Tony.
