In about 18 months, I will be released. I've been preparing for that day for many years and nearly everything has been falling into place. If I were to be released tomorrow, I'd step through the gates and right into a new life. A safe, sane and secure life. A home, vehicle, food, clothes, good friends, goals, no desire to ever put myself in a situation which would risk my freedom again, and even the will, wisdom, and means to LEGALLY make more money without struggling or working menial jobs just to make ends meet.
Unfortunately, one specific thing I've spent years trying to change in my life remains the same. I am still without a significant other. Alone. Good friends near and far I've been blessed with. A tiny, close family too. But that one special woman who I'm meant to spend my life with eludes me.
Some of my friends and family think that I should remain single until I'm released. (Moi for one). I do not agree. I believe that meeting my soulmate while locked up is not only wise but important to my future. Am I as desperate as it seems? No more desperate than anybody else who simply wants to be with their Mr. or Ms. Right and is willing to put themselves out there to find them.
I believe that if a relationship can start, grow and survive while one person is in prison, the relationship will be a powerful force once both people are free and finally together. It's only the strong, dedicated and honest relationships that survive prison. I'm also convinced that all a person's vices, flaws, lies, etc, will surface eventually during incarceration, on both sides of a relationship. If the love survives and you can continue, after being released, the relationship will thrive.
In addition to all of this, for me, having somebody to get out "to" is important, if not vital. Somebody who I have committed myself to; other than myself, family and friends, to care for, love, protect and do right by.
I've tried the prison pen pal sites, and various other means to meet somebody, to no avail. Now I'm out of ideas, so I've decided to ask every person who reads this to do what they can to help me meet a single woman in Arizona. I ask you to place any personal ads you will, send copies of my pen pal ads to your friends, and/or family, e-mail everybody you know, twitter about me, put me on Craigs List and anything else you can think of. If you want to know more about me or what kind of guy I am, I'm sure that all of my friends reading this will leave their comments and answer any questions.
