Hello, my name is Doug, and this is my story.

Time and circumstances have put me in a position where now I am looking for positive interaction with sober people. Most certainly looking for friendship, possibly something more if God is willing to connect me with the right woman, a woman who would help me grow to fulfill my potential in life, someone to have my back. I have made bad choices in my life and wish that I could take it all back but I can’t. The only thing for me to do is move forward in life and do my best to make better choices. That is why I am looking for a sincere pen-pal to share my thoughts and ideas with. A woman that would be willing to help me adapt to freedom as I take on the next challenges in my life.

I grew up in Southern California and spent most of my life there. I recently moved to Oregon in 2012. My parents were married for 8 years, most of that was a happy time. I am the second oldest out of 4 children; I have an older sister and a younger sister and brother. After my parents divorced, due to my Mom going to prison for drugs, my Dad received custody of all 4 kids and we lived with him for several years. He was a positive role model, I just wish that I would have listened to him more; his advice was always correct. A couple of years later, my Mom was released from prison and that’s when my oldest sister and I moved out to go live with our Mom. I was only 14. That is when my troubles started to really increase. My Mom was a very bad influence. She was using drugs which eventually got me addicted to meth. I started getting into trouble with the law and when I was 16, I was arrested and convicted of drug possession. I was sentenced to serve 12 months at a youth prison in Arizona. I have been in and out of correctional institutions ever since. This is so important to me, that’s why I say when I get out, I am going to stay out, for good!

I have spent a lot of time thinking about relationships, possible marriage and even raising a family; all these options are on the table. Right now, I am taking it step by step, one day at a time; God is and will continue to point me in the right direction. I don’t want to rush into anything at this point. My ambition when I get out in 2024 is to be a drug and alcohol counselor, I feel that I could give back to others what took me so long to figure out. I am also a certified sawyer and was on a fire line while in prison, I could easily fall back into that occupation if needed. I am mechanically inclined and can fix most anything, even home repairs, that way I can be self-sufficient, possibly live off the grid one day. These are just some of the great plans and ideas that I have for my future, all I need is the right woman to share them with. I am a healthy young man, 5’11, 190 lbs, who enjoys lifting weights and working out. I love the outdoors, fishing, camping, hunting, hiking, birdwatching and anything outdoors. Or just sitting on the porch and watching it rain. I love to golf and play softball, pretty good at pool and ping-pong also. Birthday parties for my nieces and nephews, Thanksgiving dinners. These are the little pleasures in life that I am missing out on and that I want to get back to so badly. I am genuinely sincere about what I am writing, so if this is something that might interest you, please drop me a line, I would love to hear from you.

God Bless
