Inmates take advantage of this to seduce receptive girls by flattery.Women crave this type of attention and are basically vulnerable to this sort of exploitation by nature.
Hint, ladies: If good-looking guys are passing you by, there's a reason for it; look over yourself critically and work it out (literally in some cases)...
which leads us to suggest that: All women like to be told they are beautiful.
Quite often, these girls never get to have any physical contact with their man so the entire relationship is played out in their minds; once again, the script of how the romance unfolds is entirely theirs. It probably does for a whole bunch of people, for a while.
Inmates like to write letters to women for two reasons: they are bored, and to recruit more people to their cause. Back then he thought nothing of her 'cause he never noticed her... Some girls will take the jailhouse romance for what it is - silly letters to make them feel good - and that's where the relationship will rest; but other girls will lose their heads altogether, and that's when it gets ugly. A woman I know, let's call her Sandy, was trapped in a loveless marriage with a violent alcoholic. Nobody would have blamed her if she divorced him and went on her way (yet again).
Still, no harm would have been done if love letters were all that was ever going to happen. Sandy's hubby, a sad and moronic creature to be sure, had somehow, despite his pervasive alcoholic haze, gathered enough wits about him to take legal action to recover his children.
But things took a more serious turn when the feller was let out. After a bit of a to and fro, the courts decided that Sandy must return the children to their rightful home as her place was judged to be an unsafe and unstable environment.She got hold of him through an acquaintance, who at the time was also dating a convicted felon.After a while, on the pretext of visiting her ailing mother in another town, Sandy began regular visits to see this man, and correspondence intensified, sending hearts aflutter until eternal love was declared, sadly on both sides.One thing is certain; whatever it is that makes these girls fall in love with criminals, it's simply not a good move.So what could it be that makes dating hardened crims so attractive to some people?Who the heck knows - but it's an affliction that ought to be treated, that's for sure.
