I met my boyfriend a year ago. I had a friend that got arrested, he became friend with this guy Christopher. Christopher's family had seemed to forgotten about him and he had no one to write to or to call. I am a giving person and like to help out anyone that I can, so I told him he could call me and that I would write to him. I was in a long-distance relationsship with someone else and Christopher totally understood and just wanted my friendship. So we wrote back and forth to each other and would talk on the phone sometimes. Then around June, things started to change, my relationship starting going downhill and I was spending most of my time alone, but Christopher was always there, calling me to cheer me up and writing to me. I started looking more and more forward to hearing from him and getting his letters. Then things ended between me and my ex boyfriend. Christopher told me that he had fallen in love with me months before, but didn't say anything because he didn't want to lose our friendship. I realized that I had loved him for months too once I wasn't in the relationship with my ex anymore. I have yet to tell my family about Christopher, but my kids know. It's only a matter of time before I have to tell them, but I don't know how. Christopher is not a bad person, I know exactly what he got arrested for and he has never lied to me about anything. Yes, he did do some bad things, but he has learned his lesson and wants to straighten his life out. He only has 7 more months left of his sentence and he will be coming home. I know my family and my friend will think I am crazy when I tell them that I fell in love with someone who is in prison, I tried telling one of my friends before, but before i could explain anything, he said that I had lost my mind. Is it crazy to love someone that is in prison? I don't think it is, we have known each other for a year and have seen each other in person several times. He is wonderful, and has a very big heart. I just need some people to talk to, people who understand what I am going through. Thanks for reading!
