I Never Knew Love, Until I Met My Prison 'pen Pal'

Crazy Story....

A guy I was seeing that had been in prison asked me to write a "friend" he had that was still in prison.  He said I was a nice girl, and they this guy and I would probably get along, and this guy had no family or friends near him, therefore could "use" a pen pal.  At first I was aprehensive, but decided what the hell.  I have been writing Brent for 3 months now, and he is the most amazing human being I have ever come in contact with.  He is capable of doing and saying things I have NEVER experianced in my life.  Needless to say, he is my main man :o)

I have always had my aprehentions about talking to him, or what his intentions were, but when I finally met him....that all changed.  The look in his eyes is so sincere, genuine and pure.  I have NEVER been looked at with such eyes, I am in awe.  I know some people may think we women who are 'into' men in prison are c razy, but mistakes of your past should never be the defining image of who you are as a person.  People change, and we have all made mistakes.  MOST never learn from them, but some do, and shouldnt be placed in a 'one size fits all box.'  

I am so much in love with this man, it is unreal.  I have never been in a situation like this, and sometimes I wonder WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME?!  But when I look into his eyes, and read his letters, I know this is where I was meant to be.  God doesnt give us more than we can handle, I trust God, and my heart, everything will be okay in the end.... :o)

Thats great! and I feel the same way about my dude. My situation is pretty damn crazy also. I live in New York and picked up some charges in a small county jail in Tennessee. We started writing to each other a few months after me being there, and we continued to write until the day I got released. Well I got released a month ago and moved back to New york. We write all the time and we talk on the phone 2-3 times everyday. I love him so much and everything happens for a reason.. I cant believe I can honestly say I am so happy for the way everything worked out. He isn't getting out until April 2014 but I know I will be by his side the whole time, I love the guy so much. Its incredible to get to know someone like this. Life really works in crazy ways and everyone thinks we are crazy. But bottom line is we are crazy--- for each other!!! Love can be found every where, even in a hopeless place!

Aww that is so lovely and I met the love of my life exactly the same way and were together just over a year now and he's got another four years to do and then were getting married

Omg i be feelin the same exact ways. Ive been talking/writing my boyfriend for 7 months but weve been dating for 4 as of yesterday. The first time i went to see him was on my birthday in may. I had just turned 18. I never cared to much for love or relationships but his love is so unconditional. The look in his eyes is amazing when he looks at me. Everydays not a perfect day but we get throught it. His family and friends know about me. He tends to make me feel speical. And most importantly he respects me. I can go on forever. But most importantly hes my friend first

Am at the same situation,

O my goshhhh i know what you mean!!!!!!

I think all men are different an girl....I can totally relate onhow your feel about this man......I love mine to death do us apart and yes things wont be easy when he comes home but prior to coming home you see the red flags on what he wants to do on the real.....for example if a man tells you he wants to still hang out with his friends who he knows he gets in trouble with then that would be a sign where he is not gonna change more likely he will be tempted to go back to his old ways because peer pressure is a mutha but anyways...enjoy the moment and fully connect with your man in all extend of the word...I am so sure and can almost guaranteed that when mine comes home....hes coming to stay.....hes a two striker...he cant afford to screwed that up anymore and I wont stand by it....and he knows that....Good luck and if this is the path you want to walk....then may God bless your love and give you both the patience and courage needed to get through this journey.

I have been in this situation and in fact I am divorced from him now. I remember running to the mail box to see if there were letters from him, and spraying my perfume on his letters so he could smell me... it was a whirlwind.. and when he got out it was good for literally like a WEEK, until the freedom began to get to him because he relapsed. Needless to say we are no longer together but I know the feeling.. absence makes the heart grow fonder<-----correct. If he makes you happy than by all means DO IT! You just might miss out on the ONE.. follow your heart but beware, because theres jerks that sit and write lots of women hoping one will give them commissary and stuff! Just live for the moment!
