By: Matthew Walker, Contributing Writer So you’re looking for love?

You’re one of those who has yet to find that person to walk your journey with.

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.

They can empathize with difficulties as they arise and can be leaned on for advice, especially regarding the lopsided, seemingly one-way aspects that come up. and their first day out they want to go drinking, maybe that’s a head’s up. Perhaps some aren’t allowed to work elsewhere, but here all are.

Though you may receive a surprise bouquet of flowers (more likely a card from canteen), can you accept you’ll definitely not be getting breakfast in bed on your birthday? Can you cope with limited contact and other difficulties? If they’ve remained unchanged, they may still carry traits you don’t want in a partner. If they’re reckless in here, without a concern for their losses (meager as they may be) what might they sacrifice out there? If the person you meet doesn’t work or go to school while they are in prison, what do you think they’ll do when free? In here, there is time, more time and then extra time to do most of what you want to do.

If they repeatedly talk about sex from behind – maybe that’s a clue? The same way you are looking for love, others are as well. In other situations, the separation was a direct correlation to their behaviors. Did they steal silverware, jewelry, the family dog?

This is one of the safest and earliest ways to test compatibility while still locked up. All prisoners have access to their list, so ask for a copy. If unable to mend family ties, if they lack the desire to do so, those could be indicators.

You’ve decided there are good enough people in prison who may be worth a chance. Are you working on your self-esteem and, for now, need the safety, additional confidence and security that dating a prisoner might offer?
