For Men with Low Standards . . .

Remember the King of the Hill episode where Bill Dauterive waits outside the local prison hoping to meet women when they’re released?  Well, thanks to the internet, now he doesn’t have to wait:

Meet-an-Inmate

CellblockMail

PrisonInmates

I bet some other blog can find a year’s worth of snarky goodness in these sites . . . woohoo, this one’s a non-smoker!

I have an uncle and a cousin that both dated ex-cons. I think the cousin actually met through a letter-writing service. Both are happily married now to non-convicts.

I am all for giving people second chances, but this...

Is there any better indicator of a red flag than "convicted felon"? Aren't the risks high enouogh dating normal women?

Prof Hale: I don't have a dogmatic opinion about that either way. What I find incongrous is the chirpy, personal ad style that totally ignores that she's in prison.

Any ad remotely serious should lead off with (a) what she was convicted of and (b) when she will be released. Then tell me about how she's a nonsmoker.

My wife did some work at a prison when she was a resident (in the nation's most conservative state, no less). Policy actually made it so that the prison was not supposed to tell her what they were convicted of. The thinking was that docs would give those guilty of worse things less comprehensive care. The result was that she more-or-less had to rely on self-disclosure when it came to drug history. And she just wanted to know, dang it. Fortunately, a sympathetic guard ignored the policy.

I also notice how a lot of them are looking for a "nonjudgemental man".
