E mail dating or pen pals
To start your search for an inmate pen pal, simply click on an age group located on the left side of either the male or female sections.
This will open up a page of small photos, listing their name and what state they are from.
Building a solid email/snail mail friendship is quite hard.
In the first couple of messages you probably exchange name, age, what you do in daily life , hobbies and sports . If you're lucky you have one or 2 things in common, for example a hobby or you are both fan of the same actor or artist.
They don’t want a real relationship as much as its virtual doppelganger.
Welcome to the world of the “elationship.” “I’ve been involved in five or six of these,” says Rich Giorgi, a 48-year-old tech writer from Carrboro, N. There’s no need to go any further.’ So I cut it off.
“One woman was always popping up on chat programs — ‘What are you doing? ’ This went on for a month and then I proposed we meet. Giorgi says he thinks some singles just like to collect “cyber-harems.” “I have a friend who’s on a dating site and I can see that a lot of the people from the site have started following her on Facebook,” he says.
And now, there's the lover who seems interested only in an ‘elationship.’ When it comes to online dating, we’ve come to expect deception, the posting of decades-old pictures and blatant lies about marital status, height, hair (or lack thereof).
We’ve learned to deal with people who dematerialize after a few days or weeks of steady contact.
(note: some inmates now may have access to email/secure messaging services).
This site is designed to quickly and easily connect you with inmates whose backgrounds and interests may inspire you to pick up a pen and become pen pals with them.
During my highschool period I had quite a lot of penpals.
