I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my profile. After much back and forth on whether or not to place this ad, I've decided to take a chance, for it is said, that one cannot discover new oceans unless they have the courage to lose sight of the shore. To be honest, it's a little scary and I can only imagine how you feel and truly hope this is a good experience for the both of us.

I try to see the best in people, giving them the benefit instead of the doubt. Honesty should be first. I know this is ironic coming from an inmate, but I know this better than most, being dishonest not only hurts others, it hurts the one being deceitful the most. I will be genuine and forthright about anything you ask. Not to sound like a cliche, but communication is the key to any relationship, be it friend or family, companion or associate, open lines of communication makes a relationship stronger, just as poor communication creates a feeble and frail connection.

At the present time, I'm working towards reintegrating back into society, both professionally, by pressing forward on a Masters of Business and Paralegal degrees, and personally, by utilizing this ad in hopes of honing my communication skills
, while creating positive connections with people of like interests. It would be nice to connect with someone who values education, personal growth, clean living, and nature, someone with a good sense of humor, self-esteem, and has a good head on their shoulders.

To address my conviction; I would like to say that I've accepted responsibility for what I've done and would give anything to take it all back. So please understand that I'm not minimizing or justifying anything that I'm about to say, it was the mind-set I had at the time. The person that I was is not the person that I am now, for that person was lost in an exuberant lifestyle, partying profusely, making many poor choices in life, such as being involved in my neighbors' "open marriage" and then later, being involved with their consenting teenage daughter, which led to my incarceration. Needless to say, the choices that were made, by everyone involved, has changed many lives negatively. I, for one, am ashamed of the situation that I allowed to take place and the unbelievably stupid, life-altering choices that I made. Some would say that I don't deserve any compassion, forgiveness, or friendship, but that is exactly what I seek.

Sometimes, life throws you for a loop, sometimes you throw yourself for one, but in the end, it's how you pick yourself back up that matters. It is my hope that you get to know me, not for what I did, but for the person that I have become. I look forward to hearing from you.

One final note, if you email me through any email service, please understand that I don't actually receive it until the day after you email it, and I can only reply by snail mail, so please make sure you send the address that I'll need to write to or I'll not be able to reply.

Have a beautiful day,
Joseph
