COMMENTARY:  Hi and welcome!  I want to start off by thanking you for stopping and taking the time to
read what I have to say.  I am an openly-gay 29-year-old.  It took me years to finally come to terms with
my sexuality and when I did I was labeled an outcast by my family and friends.  I think it is very harsh for a person, no matter the errors they
have made in life, to have no one with whom to talk or love because of their sexuality.  My sexuality wasn't a life choice, it is just me and I am
very happy with me being me.  I wish to have someone in my life with whom I can be happy.  Someone with the same values as mine and who
loves to enjoy life to the fullest like I do.  A guy who is loyal, honest, loving, caring and respectful.  If you think this is you then I would love to
hear from you.

COMMENTARY:  I am the middle child of five -- 2 older sisters and two younger brothers.  I'm originally
from Colorado, but I have lived in Illinois for about the past 12 years.  I've been locked up for two years
and before that I worked in the coal mining industry.  I love to go out driving, love being in the mountains and like cars and relaxing by fire.  I
am just about down for anything.  Your letter could be the first in two years.  I would love to read it and to get to know more about you.  In my
heart there is no question, just a love that needs protection.  You are no mere piece in some collection.  We have a bond, a true connection. I
will be released in early March and am trying to make contacts before I land.  I'll be going back to southern Illinois,  Please send me a letter so I
can contact you.  It's time to start my life over and would you like to be part of it?

COMMENTARY:  I am a 38-year-old single black male from Chicago.  I enjoy reading, writing, learning,
working out, listening to music, laughing, having a good time and making new friends.  Despite life's ups
and downs, I keep a positive attitude and remain optimistic.  We only live once, so I believe it's important to maximize the opportunities and
experiences life has to offer, one of the most important being that of genuine friendship.  I divide my days by doing the things I enjoy.  I spend
a large portion of my time working on a book.  I am also trying to get something going with my legal situation, though I'm physically inside a cell
and recognize my reality for what it is.  I do my best to mentally escape this bleak environment through my creative writing.  Now, however, I
would like to expand my little world by meeting people and making friends.  From all over, all walks of life, including yours, which is why I've
decided to post this listing.  I am open minded and have no specific expectations with this.  Though I hope to make a great friends, I am also
open to learning and sharing my experiences through an insider's perspective on prison life.  I hope you decide to contact me and I look
forward to hearing from you soon.
