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 Jason and Alexeyeva!

Jason is from Mississippit, and Alexeyeva is from California. They were matched in June 2008, and they have been faithfully e-mailing one another every week since!

When asked what he enjoys most about e-Buddies, Jason explains, "I enjoy talking to her and telling her how my week has been."

"We enjoy typing about sports, music, family, and holidays," Alexeyeva adds. In the end, the thing Alexeyeva enjoys most is "getting to know a new friend that I would not have met otherwise."

Even though they live on opposite ends of the country, the long distance between them has definitely not hindered their friendship one bit. "We have a lot in common even though we live so far away," says Alexeyeva.

"I like communicating with her on the computer, although I have never met her face to face," Jason explains. "She shares with me how her life is and I share my life with her."

Going in, Jason wasn't completely sure about making a new friend on the computer. "It was very surprising how fun it is," he notes. "I am used to being friends with people I know. At first I did not think I would like e-Buddies, but now I love it! She is a good friend to write to back and forth on the computer. It seems like we get closer every week!"

Alexeyeva wholeheartedly agrees. "Jason is so great!" she exclaims. "I never hesitate to let him know how much I appreciate him being my e-Buddy."

Congratulations to Jason and Alexeyeva, our e-Buddies of the Month for February!
