My name is Samuel Rivera. I’m a 30 year old, single, straight, Hispanic male. I’m an inmate on California’s death row.


I’m seeking to meet a woman with a nice smile and a good sense of humor to correspond with just as friends. I’m not looking to meet hundreds of women, but one special lady to share a laugh or two with. I’m not here to play games, nor am I interested in superficially or ephemeral acquaintance.


A little bit about me: I’m from California. I grew up in a small town in the central valley called Traver. I’ve been incarcerated since 2004. I was 18 years old at the time.


I spent the first four years of my incarceration in the county jail, going back and forth to court where I was offered a plea deal. I didn’t accept the deal. Finally, in late 2008 I went to trial and I lost. In mid 2009 I was sentenced and sent to California’s death row.


I arrived on death row on July 3, 2009. Just 7 days shy of my 23rd birthday. At that time I was perhaps the youngest inmate on death row. As of right now, I’m still on death row awaiting an appeal on my conviction.


Now that I’ve told you a little about myself, I want to get to know you. All I ask from you is a degree of honesty and openness. It may make you feel vulnerable or uncomfortable, yet, it is important we express ourselves without fear of judgement or rejection.


I dislike edited conversation. Conversation that hides whats real and annihilates trust. If we have to censor ourselves then whats the point of seeking to know each other? Do you agree?


Respectfully, Samuel Rivera
