e-Buddies of the Month
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 Jeffrey and Eddie!
Jeffrey is from Pennsylvania and is matched with his e-Buddy, Eddie, from Virginia. They have been matched since May of 2004 and have formed an amazing friendship through exchanging hundreds of e-mails!
When asked what he enjoys most about e-Buddies, Eddie says, I most enjoy being involved with a volunteer program that fits in so well with my busy schedule and very mobile lifestyle. I became involved with e-Buddies during college and since then, have graduated and lived/worked in 6 different towns in the course of 2 years. It's great to be able to continue to build on the relationship I have with Jeff while in my non-online life I'm always starting over town after town. Jeffrey expresses that he likes his e-mailing with Eddie.
Eddie also shares, I know there's a friend out there looking forward to reading my comments on life, football, and current events. Most other friends I try to keep up with online don't completely respond to casual e-mails I'll send out to keep in touch; but with Jeff, I can almost see him excitedly typing back replies and keeping an eye out for cool e-mail forwards for me.
Eddie sums it all up by saying, It's kind of funny that nowadays Jeff and I seem to have exactly the same kind of haircuts: overgrown high-and-tights with mid-length sideburns. I guess it kind of shows that you inevitably become more and more like those who you spend time with, even if it's just for a few minutes every couple of days.
Congratulations to Eddie and Jeffrey, our e-Buddies of the month for December!
