I guess a pen pal site, cause I got his address from someone from this forum. So it wasn't an ad per say. I would have to say kind a

So far so good, but there is still plenty of time for things to go to heck in a handbasket

Yup, I was looking for a place to rent and one of the girls from work, was leaving to go work up north and wanted someone to sublet her place, it was perfect I moved in the night before she left town, that night she was looking at ads and this one ad just happened to catch my eye, he was gorgeous and he was funny as hell, he said something about loving tight bicycle shorts and that is what got me, I had always had a crush on Axl Rose and my sister used to tell me I had better find a bad boy who wore tight shorts, well I wrote him a short note and went about life. I got a letter a few weeks later, and I couldn't stop smiling, it has grown into so much more. I never heard from the lady who subleted the apartment again, I had never written an inmate I did not know before, I really never expected to fall in love, but after 16 months of writing and daily calls ( when they weren't on LD ) he called after a two month LD and I started crying and he told me he loved me and I told him that I loved him too, that was January 5th, 2007, the next week I got 1.5.7 tattooed on my wrist. Whenever I look at it, I can't help remember how we met and the journey we have embarked on. Thanks for reminding me

Default Yes I Did.....

Meet him on a penpal website - that was over a year ago and i have been out to see him recently for the first time. I also got the chance to meet his immediate family and plan on going again to see him in the next few months. Our relationship can only get stronger.

I did, too. Stumbled onto the site, his ad "spoke" to me, wrote with no intentions and lo and behold fell in love.

Yep, pen pal ad for us....
I swore if I wrote inmates, they would not be anywhere near where I live nor would I write anyone in for a long time.....

He is everything I despised in a person, drugs, thug life, the whole bit, lived near me all his life, and 15 years older.... and yet, I couldnt be happier, a year an a half into it.

My Story:


Fate = destiny



Call it fate or call it destiny, but 18 years ago, I was out in the desert talking to God. I was praying for "the One", a short while later when I returned to my mother's house, one of my uncles stopped by to drop off several tabloid newspapers. Anyway, I'm bored and I flipped through the pages and what do you know? I came upon a section for prisoners seeking pen pals. I don't know, what happened, but right then and there, it was like the letters on this particular ad started to take on a life of its own, the strong vibrations I felt from the ad felt were incredible, good vibes! it scared me at first. I knew this was the answer to my prayer..., but instead of answering the ad, I hesitated and never reached out to write to this individual. In fact a part of me did not want to, I was in denial and for years I tried to push this thought out of my mind, but over the years I would often wonder who he was, where he was, and if he was still incarcerated. I began to wonder if I would ever find him again right.

Well, in June of 2005, 16 years later. I was up late at night I'm bored channel surfing-nothing caught my interest. Then all of a sudden, out of no where, I had this urge to go online and search for prisoner pen pals and well what do you know? I found him! I couldn't believe it! Of course I tossed and turned all night. Sure I have written to inmates over the years, but to write to one I never knew before was something new to me. I wondered what I would say. How would I begin?

Again, I attempted to ignore the stirring in my heart, then I found his name on another site, this time it was from an agency looking for people who had unclaimed money. Anyway, being the helpful person I am I printed out the information and sent it to him. I thought all I will do is send him the info and that will be that right? Ha! Well, needless to say despite my efforts to resist him, I finally came to the he's "the One" I had prayed for.


After much struggle, I gave in, and accepted this blessing from the Creator. I know, I know, it's about time! We have been together for two years now. He will be up for parole next year and it is our hope and prayer he will be released from a place that's been his residence for the past 20 years. We are of the same faith and have a strong spiritual connection, by the way, I thanked him for praying for me too....God works in mysterious ways...
