What if the prisoner is seeking romance?

This is something we actively discourage, but some prisoners are looking for more than friendship and this can become a problem. This is a situation that your coordinator will be able to help you through. They will advise you and perhaps write to the prisoner on your behalf if you wish. It often happens that a prisoner realises how much he appreciates genuine friendship above a romantic involvement. There might be the very rare occasion when things simply don’t work out between you. Again, your coordinator will help you and should you wish to stop writing to a prisoner, we can always find someone else in another state for you to write to if that is what you wish.
