Sometimes people are arrested and jailed because they did something little, or were wrongly accused. If you're going to judge him when you first meet him, be willing to change that judgement later. I say you give him a chance.

It seems the law agreed with you.

Why? They let him go..

the fact that he wasn't afraid that she'd judge him and said it anyways was pretty attractive to me

I think you should ask him what he did before you judge too quickly! It may be something petty

I agree. I mean the possibility if him being a murderer is unlikely since you go to prison for life for something like that so it could just be a small crime. As crazy as it sounds, a lot of people in jail change, have a good heart and committed a petty crime, or were wrongly accused

Not to mention it doesn't say how long he was in jail. He really could've done a lot of things, dot judge so quickly.

@50 actually, you don't always go to prison for life for murder. there are several classifications of murder charges, and depending on the circumstances, and the DA, people can get out in under 10 years, especially if they are an informant, etc.

Murder is either first or second degree and even if you get a deal and don't spend the rest of your life in jail, you generally get at least 10 years. On the other hand, manslaughter carries shorter sentences and I've never heard of anyone getting life with it.

Why would he say that to someone he just met?

Maybe he liked her and wanted to be open so that she wouldn't get upset and run away after he got to like her more.

That's still something you should wait to tell someone at least until you're on a date with them. "Hi, you're pretty. I just got out of prison," is not the best way to approach someone.

Sounds like an honest man to me none the less

Usually when you're flirting you strike up a conversation, maybe she asked him about his past and decided to be honest with her?

I'm pretty sure that's not exactly how that conversation went down. You don't really get much chance to explain something in an FML :p

At least go look at arrest records to see what he did first.

Statistically he probably just did four years for having a joint in his pocket at the wrong time.

Honestly I had taken it as Today, I found out I can, apparently, only attract a man if he has recently been locked up, to a far away place with no contact with females. FML

The portion about a cheating ex makes it seem as though she's looking for a relationship.

Still an awkward thing to blurt out upon first meeting someone. But made OP's beauty left him tongue-tied.

Very few people are honest these days, practically none during their first date/ meeting. If you like a person have no regrets, we all have a past. I totally agree with #6

He was released from prison not jail.

Don't judge a book by it's cover.

Love is blind. Or on parole.

Maybe he was in jail for murdering that pussy. No. foreal, he could be changed for the better, and if you feel any negative vibes, dont sweat it dear. Everyone finds someone eventually.

Guilty as charged! lmfao

it's almost a guarantee that's what he was in for

Sounds like he paid his debt to society. Everyone deserves a second chance.

he might murder you while you sleep but atleast he won't cheat on you

He's done the time. You can go to prison for defending yourself or petty things. Don't judge just yet, he hasn't asked you to marry him.
