Men in prisons dating
Inmates are not only thrilled to communicate with pen-pals but have stated that it has been a "spiritually and emotionally fulfilling experience." has enabled friends and family to stay in contact with their loved ones and has a 75% compatibility rating for those looking for their soul mate.
Online sites for dating prisoners have proliferated in recent years.
Some sites also charge people interested in contacting an inmate for the desired addresses.
(Meet-an-inmate does not charge for this service.) even boasts a Facebook-like interface complete with status updates to make the selection process more appealing.
Despite the growing interest in online prisoner dating, Bischke insists that these sites are intended to ease prisoner isolation only.
Posing in spruced-up versions of their prison uniforms, prisoners use these sites to sell themselves to potential pen pals and describe the types of people they want to meet.Others observe that law-abiding citizens seek anti-social lovers because they are unable to be truly intimate within a typical commitment. Then there is always the eternal appeal of the bad boy (or girl).But does the sexy swag of a prisoner outweigh the risks of loving a violent offender?One compelling prospect, Israel Cosme, age 30, displays his perfectly toned chest to visitors of telling all takers, “I love to laugh and have been told I have a great sense of humor.” Precious Johnson in her profile on the same site cracks a cute smile above the message: “I am looking for a nice, patient, funny, and understanding man for a genuine friendship that could possibly lead to more.” Few prisoners in the United States have Internet access; therefore, for the incarcerated to make that special connection online, someone on the outside must get them started. With fees in the range of -75, prisoner dating sites charge willing friends to list an inmate’s vital statistics on the web — or the company can mail the necessary forms to the wannabe lover behind bars who then mails them in.Once a prisoner’s information makes it online, interested parties pick potential partners as they would on any other matching site.
