This is day 19 and counting. MatchMan has called a few times during his forced "vacation". We have also written letters. It's all been quite romantic, considering the circumstances. For the first week or so, I didn't hear a peep from him. I later found out that he was too proud to contact me and was embarrassed. He assures me that he will never go back there again. He can't handle all the other men in there. He isn't the jailbird type. He isn't cut out for being the "tough guy". I knew this when he went in, and it had me somewhat worried. He is the kind of guy who is always laughing and cracking jokes. He is sensitive to others' needs and feelings. All that being said, he is hanging in there, but it is definitely wearing on him. In his first letter, he sent a list of "demands" upon his release...some naughty and some Rated G.
RM still continues to send text messages. The last one just said, "I hope you are well."
