Dating site for men in prison

The profiles are authored entirely by the convicts, which means nobody double-checks them for accuracy.

The 16-month-old website, which promotes some 40 convict profiles, has even churned out a few lockup love stories.

The site’s founder says several prisoners have asked her to remove their bios because they have already found that special someone.

Instead, a spokeswoman highlighted the department’s policy on inmate correspondence.“The safety of public, staff and inmates remains paramount,” Christa Mc Gregor wrote in an email.

Mehlenbacher said prison staff he’s spoken to about the website think it’s “awesome,” although they do have concerns that some inmates aren’t always honest about their convictions.

The suitors are among dozens of male and female cons who have posted personal profiles and photos on a matchmaking website with a twist.

This site hooks up people on the inside with those on the outside. He claims to hold the Toronto record for robbing the most banks in the shortest span: 11 financial institutions knocked off in four-and-a-half hours.“Not something I am really proud of,” Alex Nikoloski writes in his profile.

2 wants a woman to join him as he closes a dark chapter from his past. 3, meanwhile, says he can’t be available for a first date for awhile — at least not before 2021.

Not only do these men share a quest for love, they have something else in common: they’re all in prison for murder.

Canadian Inmates Connect helps prisoners like Mehlenbacher escape, so to speak, from the daily grind of life in the pen.“He’s in there with a bunch of weirdos or whatever, so by getting a letter from somebody from the outside brings a smile to him,” she said.“I guess it just makes somebody’s day.”Mehlenbacher said the website has given many guys he knows on the inside a boost.“I was kinda lonely,” Mehlenbacher, who spoke to The Canadian Press on the phone from prison, said of his decision to join the website.

Shortly after posting his profile, he said he started to receive letters, including one from a woman in Nairobi, Kenya, who was looking for a pen pal.
