I was looking for pen-pals, some people as different from each other as possible, and as I was digging through all the ads I picked out a few, wrote them, and among those who answered was this guy in particular. Really, I wasn't looking for romance, and neither was he, but it took him only one letter to have me smitten. Now I'm madly in love.

I think I'm very much in the same position as you Kirin! Started out writing for friendship one reply was all it took. We've been writing for a couple of months and I think I may be falling for him!

Hello ... so I met my guy on POF. I decided after being single for 2.5 years that I was ready to date. I had moved to NY from Cali and had to start all over so that is why I stayed single, I wanted to just focus on myself. There were a couple times I flirted with he idea of getting a pen pal but I never went through with it. Well spring ahead a couple months I decided I was ready to start dating so I made an account on POF ( I know I know ). So I saw this guys profile and was instantly attracted to him so I messaged him. He replied everything seemed good. Then the next day I went back to his profile and saw his inmate info. I was confused so I wrote him. Long story short his brother made him a POF account. Some may think that it was misleading which it was but I was the one who still gave his brother my number so he could call me. I thought about the past couple months when I flirted with the idea of writing someone and went against it. I kind of feel like it is a sign we were supposed to be talking... so here we are . He calls me everyday at least once sometimes two or three. I am still uncertain where this will go, but I am grateful he came into my life.

I know the feeling! Met mine on POF but his buddy's wife that he's was locked up with made his account. He was honest from the beginning very open about his present situation. I have never thought about the pen pal thing but for some reason it all fell together. So many similarities between my guy and I and we've decided that we definitely found each other at the right time and right place. We are in love and talk about marriage often and I see him every weekend. Are you close to where this guy is? It may be a good idea to see him and go from there.

How long have you and your guy been together for? What does your family say? Do they support you? I am actually only about an hour and a half from him and plan on visiting him next week for the first time. I am super nervous and I donít even know why. I guess going to meet someone for the first time and knowing the visit last from 9-3 is intimidating haha.

Default Hi

Hi my name is Jill. I met my guy while he was serving his time. I got to know him over the past nine months and we have fallen in love. He will be out soon... Less then three months!! I am nervous about posting HOW we met because I don't want to jeopardize anything! I am not sure how anonymous we are in here 😍

Exclamation Its all brand new !

So i met this guy on writeaprisoner.com around a month ago, we began as penpals, but its moved very quickly.
We haven't made anything official as of yet, but we both know we want to be together, we both agreed its like knowing each other for our entire lives. We email everyday and he calls everyday, we're talking about arranging a visit for a couple of months, I'm falling so hard, and so quickly too, I'm scared honestly, this is so new to me! He's got 4 years left of his sentence but is currently appealing. I've never fell this hard for an almost stranger, he's my best friend and i couldn't imagine not having him in my life anymore. I get butterflies everytime i think of him, i could really use some advice on whether to follow my heart?

Whoa ....slow down the tempo, take your time getting to know each other. You have 4 years to figure things out, he isn't going anywhere

Is he state or Federal?

FYI: My Mr & I are also MWI..... Welcome to PTO!

No, 8 - 9 months isn't too soon for a visit IMHO. Yes, by all means, enjoy getting to to know him ...but I wouldn't be sending any money / packages etc.

You may want to read up on visits at his facility in that state's forum

Hey there,I think it's fair to do the same like everybody. I'm french but i live in Spain. I've meet my pen-pal on Writeaprisoner.com 1 Year ago. I don't know what happen between us. I really wanted to become a good friend for him but it's look like we feel both other feelings. Step by step, day by day, mail by mail and call by call it goes deeper, stronger and just amazing. But i'm always worried about everything: Is he okay ? If i'm the only one, if he do the same with other ? I read a lot of stories on different forums and i'm not reassured.

We'll wait and see.
Have a nice day everybody.

Default Hello!

I posted this intro in the general Prison Talk "Introduce Yourselves" thread, but I will also post it here:

Hello, all.

I'll keep it short and save the full story for another thread.

I am newly divorced and newly involved in a friendship/potential relationship with an ex-convict who is currently residing in a halfway house. I have never before been involved with anyone who has been in jail, and I need a lot of guidance, support, and exchange of ideas. Full details in another thread.

Hi everyone!! My name is Robin. I'm from the southernmost part of South Florida, and love my island life. MJ and I started out as penpals over a year ago. I was searching through the profiles on a pp website one day and ran across his. I didn't immediately write. After a week of not being able to get him off my mind, I decided to send him a quick note. There was just something about him that drew me. Anyway, as I noted earlier, we've been talking over a year. At this point, I'm not really sure what one would classify us as, but this forum is as close as I can find. It's nice to "meet" all of you.

Default Hi all MurMur from Oregon

My name is Dani. I'm from Northwest Oregon. My best friend gave my MWI my phone number after he asked her if she had any friends that he could get to know. I was so against it and didn't answer his calls for 3 days. I finally picked up and it was probably the best decision ever we've been talking for a couple of months our friendship has blossomed into some mutual feelings I got to visit him a couple weeks ago and it was magic. I was really scared going in but seeing him made it better. We talk everyday 2-3 times a day and email every other day. I was very sceptical about meeting someone in prison but I found this site and found alot of similarities for our situation. He has 8 months left and I am so excited to get to know more of him. It's truly been amazing to get to know someone on this level. Kinda old school with the snail mail and phone calls this day in age. I look forward to getting to know more about everyone and their MWI. Thanks for having me.

I met my fiancŤ while an officer at his institution. We hated each other at first due to a messy inmate who lied & told him I though he was looking @ me while he was doing something inappropriate. Smh. Just a few wks later, we started being cordial after I asked him if he was ok b/c he was looking down & it was hitting me in my gut for some reason.
I made the *mistake of calling him one day & we have been joined at the hip since. I lost my job as of the beginning of Aug. due to a Sgt who had a crush on him flat out writing a false write up on me, but its for the best since we found out July 3 that Im pregnant. I don't regret one moment of this journey or our choices. It has changed my life. I am flying to Kansas in 3 weeks so we can get married by proxy, even though as long as he is at that prison, he will never be allowed visits with me.

Thanks for coming here and sharing.
Question? You can do a proxy marriage in Kansas? Is that were he us located?
I thought Montana was the only place. Please share.

I'm glad you shared. Hopefully you won't feel isolated and this site will bring you strength!!
