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 Andy and Nicole!

Nicole is located in Missouri and her e-Buddy, Andy, is from Maryland. They were matched in November of 2007 and each has already sent well over 200 e-mails to the other. In that time they have forged a great friendship that has impacted both of their lives in a positive way.

When asked what they enjoy most about being involved in e-Buddies, Nicole states; "It's a great way to make a difference in someone's life and have someone make a difference in yours. I enjoy learning about another person, trading stories and being a friend." Andy also shares that he enjoys making new friends from different states.

When asked what is surprising about their involvement in e-Buddies, both share that they really look forward to receiving e-mails from one another which in turn makes checking their e-mail more fun.

Nicole and Andy both appreciate the friendship that they have been able to develop through e-Buddies. Andy explains that sometimes when he is sad he re-reads the e-mails from Nicole and he becomes happy again. Nicole expresses that "I look forward to getting Andy's e-mails as he always is full of great stories, questions, and ideas. He is very inquisitive and makes me think about many things that I haven't thought about."

Andy concludes by sharing that "Nicole keeps me in a positive peace of mind. She is a wonderful e-Buddy to me." Nicole sums up their friendship by saying "Andy has a warm heart and spirit and isn't afraid to be himself. He's honest, caring, and inspiring and is a great asset to the e-Buddies community."

Congratulations to Andy and Nicole our e-Buddies of the Month for August!
