Each month, we will profile one of our many fantastic e-Buddies pairs! If you would like for your match to be profiled, please contact us!

This month we are featuring Theo and Caroline!

Theo and Caroline recognize that there are many reasons why e-Buddies is so enjoyable. One of the greatest things about e-Buddies is summed up when Caroline says that she enjoys e-Buddies so much because it offers her, and I quote, “the chance to personally connect with a wonderful person that I would otherwise not get to meet in my busy life.” Theo and Caroline, like many e-Buddies, live thousands of miles apart from each other, so they probably never would have met if they weren’t e-Buddies. Theo is from California and Caroline is from Washington, D.C. The two friends do not, however, let this incredible distance hinder their strong friendship, which began over a year ago.

Theo and Caroline have a wonderful friendship. Theo says that his friendship with Caroline is so special, because, “she is a good friend for me to talk to.” Caroline agrees that Theo is a good friend to talk to and replies, “Theo takes time to be my friend. I appreciate that he is thinking about me and my family every week and that I get to learn about his hobbies, his job and his life.” Isn’t that what e-Buddies is all about? These two good friends realize that when you take the time to talk to your friends, your life will be enhanced and you will be appreciated.

There are some people out there that do not think that you can have a strong friendship through e-mail, but, as we know, it certainly is possible, and Theo’s and Caroline’s friendship is some proof. Caroline adds to that evidence, “I am pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to make friends through e-mail. Theo's e-mails are such a nice reminder every week of what is important in life -- friendship, communication and taking time to show your friends you care.” As if it weren’t already crystal clear that Theo and Caroline have a great friendship! Theo and Caroline know each other well; they know what the other person likes to do in their spare time. “Theo likes bowling, roller coasters (and has written a book about them!) and takes time to do fun things. I am lucky to have him for my e-Buddy!” exclaims Caroline. That’s right; you heard correctly, Theo has written a book about roller coasters! These two have a really great bond, and they prove that they genuinely care for each other.

Let’s all send a warm e-Buddies congratulations to Theo and Caroline, our e-Buddies of the month for September!!!
