Ladies & Genteel men; Hello, I’m Larry Thompson. “TIME” is not my friend so I’ll be very direct... I NEED Friends! Friends who’ll see and accept the man I’ve become, not the foolish boy I once was; Friends who’ll help me endure the tests of time. Everyone needs an escape; writing is my preferred method so let me give it to you straight. I’m doing “LIFE” for a crime that I didn’t commit and I’m in need of Friends, Muses, and Companionship. I’m not highly educated but I’m a good listener... I’m the youngest ol’ man that you’ll ever know, that is IF you’re willing to be my partner in the dance of discovery. Regardless of age, ethnicity, nationality, or sexual orientation, I’m here and hoping to hear from you. I believe that in all experiences there is value; I’ve experienced much and would love the opportunity to share what I’ve learned with you. I believe in “Faith”, not religion; “Hope & Compassion” over fear and condemnation. How about you? What understandings can we share together? For me, “Writing” is therapeutic, especially personal letters. Over the years I’ve written in several genres and hope some day to become a published author which is the only way for me to establish a “Legacy”; You see, I’ll soon be 62 years young; I’m childless, and all of my immediate family members have already passed away. The words that I’ve written, or those that have been written about me will be the only evidence left proving that I ever existed, and hopefully mattered. Hopefully someone will remember and think of me kindly... Will you be amongst them? What’s your passion? IF you’re interested in exploring the pleasures of romance or eroticism, I’m you man; I’d love to write fantasy for you. The world has changed several times over since I’ve been locked away, but, the sensual nature of human beings hasn’t... I hope you’ll take a chance and allow me to entertain you for a while. IF that doesn’t sound inviting, choose a topic and let’s get to know each other. Take it from someone who knows, “Lonely roads have no destination, yet they always lead to somewhere”... It would be wonderful if our’s intersected in a place called “Hope” at a time called now. In conclusion I’ll leave you to ponder this short piece that I penned 5 years ago; it’s entitled: The Shadow’s Essence... Shadows cannot exist without light... Silence of the unknown is restless and discomforting; Unwelcome, but unavoidable. Such is the passage of time; such is the way of my life.. So bright, yet so dark; nearly as tangible as the silken petals of a speckled white rose. For the shadow’s essence is light... Shine on me. September 17th 2016. Be Well; Thank you for your time & consideration. Please write soon and often. I remain...

Jonathan C

Hey, I just want to tell you all a little bit about myself. I am currently 49 years old, I was born on Sept. 6th, 1972. I am 5 foot 7 inches tall, and weigh around 190 lbs. (a little chubby, but I don’t think I’m fat). I have brown hair and blue eyes. I am currently incarcerated in Littleton, Colorado, at Englewood Federal Correctional Institution. I was arrested on May 6, 2008, and am expected to be released on Sept. 22, 2025. I consider myself bisexual, because I am attracted to both male and females, but I prefer males more. I tell people that I am honest to a fault, because I say what is on my mind with out a filter, as long as it is the truth. Some people don’t like that about me, others just appreciate the honesty. I like to play fantasy football, therefore, I watch as many NFL games as I can, and pay attention to what is going on in the league. I also have been a NASCAR fan for over 25 years. I love horror movies and books. I also enjoy suspense, thrillers, and comedies. I like all genres of music. I would say alternative rock is my favorite, but like all kinds. I am interested in meeting any new person, sex, race, sexual orientation, or interests doesn’t mean anything to me. I like all people!! I am an easy going person who is just looking for some new people to connect with. I do like to get sexual in my writing, if this bothers you, please let me know from the start and I will try to refrain from being vulgar. Well, I hope you find something in my introduction letter that piques your interest. If you do find something interesting in my letter, or would just like to meet someone new, please feel free to write to me.

Michael M

Life has a way of making you pay attention, and that is something that I never again want to take for granted. I'm a man that enjoys meeting new people, reading, writing, and all forms of art. Life has caught my attention, and I am thankful for the chance to recognize the beauty of human nature before this journey that we call 'life' draws to an end for me. I'm interested in meeting new people and having the chance to live vicariously through their experiences. I'm an avid intellectual that loves to learn. I believe that we all have something extraordinary to add to each other's lives, as we've all seen life through a different lense. There is no greater joy than to be able to connect with someone and just share your unbridled thoughts. I'm looking for an opportunity to cultivate new friendships that allow for positive and healthy communication without judgement- a safe zone of integrity. I'm fortunate enough to work in a field that I enjoy very much as an Offender Clinical Assistant. I love helping people and am always looking for new ways to positively impact those around me. I can't tell you everything about me here, but am hoping this will be interesting enough for you to take the time to get to know me better. I have no expectations and I really just want to get to know people from all walks of life. Write to me at: Michael Lee Montoya #131813 12750 Highway 96 at Lane 13 Ordway, CO 81034 And please don't forget to include a return address in your letter if you write :)

I grew up religious, but I don’t practice often but would gladly talk about religion. I have been curious my whole life but because of my family I wasn’t able to be adventurous until I moved out. I love meeting new people and getting to know everyone. I don’t have any preference everyone is welcome to write me :) I would love to find someone I can talk to about my life and what I have gone through and what I am going through and vice versa. Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you. Be safe out there.

Anthony L

These few words come from a land far far away. Though we're millions of miles apart, I wanted to take a moment of your time to introduce myself as the one possibly for you. In this time of solitude I often lay awake til my sleepers kick in :) Thinking of life and the meaning of love. I'm a hopeless romantic caught in a whirlpool of emotion, enduring years of confliction that has confounded my perspective and left many hearts broken. I'm a genuine ass dude and consider myself deep in insight and experienced in pain... I'm currently serving a life-sentence and i'll tell you about it if you ask, this is my first D.O.C sentence. Mama tried but the hard head in me causes more than I even like sometimes. ;-) I'm 30 years old, Hispanic, I'm an artist, I've been married once and have 4 kids, 2 boys, 2 girls. Me and my ex's couldn't make it through time, habits, distance, and bullshit. I hate drama, yet I understand that life isn't complete until you have a soul-mate. 'Disillusionment' sucks so being transparent is the best answer. In my life theres been heartache and pain, but I also understand that it's in those moments you learn your best lessons. I guess you can call me illilect. An idiot I am not, and I don't wish to bullshit anyone or be bullshitted. I wanted to send an introduction letter because I like to write and have no one to share it with. I want to be the one to bring a smile to someone's face. As for my look; I've included a photo along with this letter, but I'm tatted up, goatee, bald headed, and I'm into cross-fit. I'm ambitious, I have a sense of humor and I'm easy to get along with. I'm set in my ways, but I know that I need another's perspective in order to get it right. I want someone to talk to, to hash out my issues and be an advocate for another lonely soul. I get it and want to share my insight with someone too. I'm new to this pen-pal stuff and want someone to share my time with. I'm not shallow, so I dig deep and look forward to bringing out the best in you ;-P This is my 'introduction', so i'll keep it simple enough, but I look forward to your response. HMU and open a door worth walking through. ;-)

Hi my name is Darryl. I'm in the pursuit of finding a new companion. Through my temporary incarceration my goal is to convince you through my campaign to be a better man. Never shed a bad light on our friendship, or betray your belief in me by displaying any disrespect or inappropriateness toward you. I hope to get the pleasure of meeting you. I'm 30 years old, 5'8 amd 160lbs. I'm from Colorado Springs, CO and lived there almost all my life. I'm Black and Filipino and was raised in a household with both my parents. I'm a high school graduate (Great Basin High School) with some college credits under my belt. My reason for taking part in a pen pal service is to change the perception on who's incarcerated and make lifelong friends, and erase the stigma affixed to these circumstances. So in my effort I'm sending you this letter in a bottle as if I were stranded on a desserted island, hoping I don't fall on deaf ears. With such a unconventional way of meeting someone. I do believe that strangers are nothing but friends who haven't met yet. So I set forth on this journey. If you can give me half a chance I can promise you that I am worthy of it and I won't let you down. Maybe you're someone who's not intimidated by affectionation and appreciation, loyalty and compassion or creating something worth embracing. I'd love to politic with you on a intellectual level of love and friendship. I truly want to explore the unique beauty of your precious mind and I will assure you that you will be overwhelmingly fascinated with mine. I'm open-minded and down to earth. One who is above and beyond the artificial role plays and emotional games. I'm someone who finds pleasure in socializing, networking, and establishing solid foundations. I have a magnetic personality. I'm optimistic, caring, loving, and warm-hearted. My needs will come second to yours, as we sincerely build our divine foundation on trust. So if you're tired of pain, tragedies and confusion and are ready for respect, commission, companionship, then contact me. You can write me at the address provided or go to and use my name and number to contact me. Thank you. Darryl Lynch #162429

Chris M

To my new friend out there, My name is Christopher and I am a white, 53 year old bi male. I've always had the curiousity since a young boy of 8 years old. I grew up on the streets at the age of 15 when i finally left an abusive home. Nonetheless my life did not get any better. I did things that I'm not proud of to survive the streets. As an adult I still have the same curiousities but do not act upon them for fear of rejection from the family that I do have left in my life. I still like women even though I'm in a male fast of likely possibilities. I keep it secret but would like to one day come out to the world and be free of this secret I've had for many years. I'd love to have a new friend (male or female) to write to for encouragement of all daily activities. I am considered a good friend to have. I'm loyal and truthful. I need to talk with someone about these things. Hope to hear from you soon!

Jason B

Hello, My name is Jason Beamer. I'm 5'11 and weigh 210 pounds. I'm 44 years old, I'm looking to make friends and pen pals who are positive and supportive. A sense of humor is a plus. I'm really laid back and no judegemental, so feel free to respond without insecurity. I'm currently enrolled in classes and will be graduating soon with hopes of transferring to a facility offering better education opportunities and incentives. I'm a father to a six year old son whom I love dearly. Also when I was out I owned my own tree service which was the perfect job since I love being outdoors, as well as camping hiking and fishing. I love animals especially dogs. I've also travelled a lot of states including New York. Connecticut, Vermont, Maine, Ohio, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon and Massachusetts. I enjoy reading and spending time with friends, as well as working out and eating good foods. I like lots of music, concerts, and music festivals that include jam bands, hip hop, and Grateful Dead inspired music. Feel free to ask any questions I haven't covered. Nothing is off limits. I'm really looking forward to making a new friend and I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for reading, Jason.


My name is Edgar Dewond (pronounced D’Juan) Reed. I am 41 years of age, 6’3, 210 pounds, I am African-American. I enjoy Reading, Favorite Authors John Grisham & Michael Connelly. I love to work-out. I am honest, mature and most importantly loyal. I have been incarcerated for 20 years straight. I am fortunate enough to have an opportunity at clemency in December 2022. What clemency/commute is, is someone who has been in prison for 15+ years and has shown a desire to change. My trial lawyer, D.A. and victims has all ask that I get a chance at release. To be honest, I am scared, NOT AT failure, but what obstacles are ahead. I am looking fro someone to grow with who is willing to partake in this journey with me. The closer to Nov/ Dec comes the more anxious I become. I am looking for someone who is open, honest, mature, and has the time to give. I am open to hearing from anyone.


Hi, I’m Roy I was born in 1977 in Virginia. Grew up in New York. Travelled all over the U.S. & parts of Europe & lived in Hong Kong for 8 months. I am interested in archaeology (sp??), the occult, high strangeness, zombies, doomsday preppers/urban survival, but not stuck on these subjects - open to new experiences. When it comes to music I like anything from Tommy Dorsey to Deicide to the Bee Gees. As long as it resonates with me... Not much of a tv or film person. I prefer books. I’m really looking for someone to write to. I still have some time left so a pen pal would be nice.

Isaac S

I am a Christian white male who accepts all people. One of my rules is to not judge. I have six pack and work out a lot. I do not do it to impress people or be an icon, but I do it to be a leader who fights insecurity. I am the most in shape in the pod, endurance wise, but if I take a break, my mind will say, “You’re fat, you’re ugly.” Let me deal with insecurities. You are beautiful the way you are. I once was weak. Now I am strong. Pray for me, I’ll pray for you.

A brother can sing and I love to write Love songs in that old school R&B style. Please reach out to me?

In search of someone to connect with on a human level someone to shed a little light on these gray walls, this new journey that I’ve chosen comes with a thirst for life, knowledge, and friendship. One of the worlds most sought after secrets is happiness. Realizing that happiness comes in many forms the happiness I seek comes in the form of a letter, a phone call a visit, human contact. Im sending this message in a bottle as if i were stranded on a. deserted island hoping it doesnt fall on deaf ears. Im in need of someone open to building an intimate friendship. Besides my freedom what I miss the most is the human touch. A spiritualist who loves nature I value friendship and place loyalty above or in high regard.

David R

What is going on free world. My name is David Ruffin. I am from Baltimore, Maryland, I moved to Colorado in 2017, what can I say I’m a Denver Nuggets fan. (Maryland does not have an NBA team, and I go for the underdog). Due to poor decisions, I smoked so much meth since moving to Colorado (I never heard of the damn drug until I moved out here) that I barely recall my past life growing up. Like I never even had a childhood, I cant even remember what high school I went to, but I still remember family vacations, and my favorite dirty movies. I used to play the saxophone, I made all country once, in high school. I find people very interesting. I like to discuss world events and life itself with people, and whatever is on your mind. So how about being my pen pal? Right on.

Christopher R

Good evening, my name is Chrisopher, also known as: (Ali Khanan-Yah). I’m currently housed within the Colorado Department of Corrections, and I identify with the pronouns: (he/him). I am a freelance writer/screenwriter, poet, and investigative journalist. I am also a certified life coach, as I make it my personal mission in life to shine a light on the possibilities of pure happiness. With the world so set on tearing itself apart, it doesn’t seem like a bad idea to me to want to put a little of it back together again. Life comes with disappointments however, should you choose to join me on a journey of positive correspondence and friendship, here are some things that I can promise to you: Someone you can come to for comfort; eyes you can look into and trust; a heart that understands and does not judge; a supporting to shoulder to cry on; a door that is always open; and time devoted to you whenever you need a helping hand. If this peaks your fancy then please do not hesitate to reach out. They say, ‘Life is a thousand songs awaiting to be sung.’ Take my hand and I’ll teach you how to sing!
