Default New love :-)

Hi all,
Im completely new to this forum so please bare with me
I started writing my pen pal only a few months back. We get along so well and have alot in common. A week or so ago he had asked me to make it "official" lol. We both admitted to falling quite early on. So hopefully things continue this way :-) Only real issue we are having is that because im Australia and he is in CA getting the phone to work is quite the challenge .

Hello! My name is Taylor. I met my guy a little under a month ago through a pen pal ad and we started emailing through JPay. I honestly messaged him just looking for friends but I finally admitted to myself today that I have pretty strong feelings for this boy. In about two weeks there have been almost 50 emails between us and 4 phone calls. He’s told me a few times that he’s catching feelings for me and how important I’ve become to him. I have to admit I was hesitant because you always hear about cons but he’s told me a handful of times that he doesn’t want my money just my companionship. I was getting anxious today and couldn’t take my nap (I work overnights) because I hadn’t heard from him today but then my phone rang. He asked his friend to call me because he’s in the hole. I guess that has to mean something if he cares enough to have his friend call me so I don’t worry. I’m still kind of reeling because this is my first time dealing with this and I don’t know fully what happened. I wrote him a couple letters already and they will hopefully make it to him. I think I found this site just in time. I feel like it’s definitely gonna help me through this.

Welcome! I already know people on here will tell you to slow down this relationship but Ill just say enjoy the ride and listen to your gut feeling.
Dealing with the hole can be stressful but keep them letters coming, theyll mean a lot to him. My LO is also in the hole atm and thinking that I wont get to speak to him until 2020 just sucks. Dont trip and keep yourself busy.
I think its sweet that he had his buddy call you.
You can wait for his letter or call his case manager to find out more. Depending on which state hes in you might even see online what landed him in the hole.

Thank you for the kind words. Im definitely not rushing into marriage or anything like that any time soon and Im still being cautious and getting to know him. Hes in Kentucky do you know how I would go about seeing if I can find out online?

Type _Kentucky offender search_ into google and with his name and DOC number you might find something out. I havent had to deal with the state of Kentucky, but maybe someone who knows more will chime in.

Hello, folks!

I’ve been lurking for a while but I recently decided it was time to post and try to get active in the community.

So....I found my first penpal on WriteaPrisoner back in June of 2019! He’s the only person that’s incarcerated I’ve ever written to and we just immediately clicked. We’ve been writing for close to seven months and it’s been such an awesome experience. He finally asked to call in November and we’ve had a phone conversation once every weekend since. I, like many others, expected it to be a way to reach out and possibly make a new friend — but I definitely have a huge crush (that I’ve not admitted to, haha).
He’s in a minimum security facility for a DWI with death and is on year 4 of a 6 year sentence. In June of this year he’ll be transitioning to a halfway house, and June of 2021 he’ll be entering house arrest for a year. We both live in the states and are close to the same age. He’s absolutely hilarious, super dorky, and is a prideful person that’s made it clear he has no expectations monetarily or otherwise. He’s never openly “hit on me” or ever admitted to feelings, but there’s certainly subtle flirtation — which is basically my love language. I would never want to jeopardize our communication by inserting this layer into the mix, and I so value the friendship that’s grown in these months. I’m basically at a point where I feel we’re both avoiding saying the inevitable, but I’m just the kind of person that would take it to my grave rather than have that courage. I hope these forums might help me find it!

Anywho — Nice to meet you all!

Default Who woulda thought??

Hello, I just created my new user profile & this is officially my 1st post. How I met my guy is pretty funny (& ironic) I was on a dating website POF & I could not believe the message in my inbox! A picture of what looked like a male, the head/face cropped off and in what looked to be a prison cell!! His message said something about not judging him and to please listen to his story...lmfao!!! I thought: Is this guy serious!? As if! So, days later I was showing my friend/co-worker this message and we had a good laugh. She said Come on! Reply to his message for fun and lets just see what he says!! Giggling like school girls we typed a reply..... over the next 4 years he would become my friend, lover & I believe my soulmate <3
