Dating a man who has been in jail
This prison environment is so sterilized and neutral, it doesn’t lend itself to showing off personality. What are the subtle and glaring misrepresentations? Women have their hair extensions and whatever other enhanced aspects to them and men do as well.
Family accounts can add a depth to your understanding of your prisoner’s naturally occurring mannerisms and quirks. It could be as simple as faking fashion sense and style.
While looking at it, see how many of the names say “family” next to them. People who have more support and connections tend to do better upon release, giving you and your relationship one less struggle to manage.
If family relations are stable, when it’s time, ask for introductions.

One of the things that sort of made me step back, was the way he reacted to something that I said in a text.
It doesn't take a criminal record, but I get your point Andrea..
He may never be able to get a security clearance simply because of that.
Some forums can only be seen by registered members.Not only that but if they went to prison, they did something serious enough to get them there and who's to say that their behavior will change vs just falling right back into "what you know". My soon to be ex husband had a Domestic Violence charge in his record and can't get any jobs... No thanks and sorry to anyone who's been in prison before who did make a change but the fact is, the record follows you everywhere and does greatly affect your quality of life. Sometimes one false move, and you scr*w yourself for life. I know, there probably are some guys out there who have made some mistakes, and are now have straightened out their lives. This isn't someone I picked up off the assembly line as a pen pal at my local prison or something. I had a black female friend years ago, great girl, great Mom, had her work ethic right etc but this girl never could get away from troubled men! I'm in a long-term relationship but, when I was single, I wouldn't have dated someone who had a prison record. But for me, it's not a risk I'm willing to take, esp. Also, I don't surround myself with people that tend to have issues with violence, drug abuse, or other criminal activities. He's a nice guy, who like someone else mentioned, turned himself in, and did his time.
