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 Karl and John!

Karl is from California, and John lives in Florida. They were first matched in November 2003, which means that they have been matched for almost 6 years! They have also exchanged more than 1,300 e-mails. Wow!

Karl and John enjoy discussing many topics in their e-mails, and sports are at the top. "Karl has learned over the years that I am a real fan of the Florida Gators and Texas Rangers," John tells us, "so he will often send me articles he finds that relate to these teams."

John spends time in both Florida and Texas, and is always sure to keep Karl updated regarding his travels, particularly the weather. "I spend a lot of time in Florida," John explains. "We share information on hurricane activity here and heat in Texas!"

Regarding other common topics of conversation, John adds, "We talk about movies we have seen, my grandchildren, his sister and her family, and things we have planned for the Holidays."

When asked what he enjoys most about being involved in e-Buddies, John submits, "Having a friend that is undemanding, interested in my family and how we are doing, and the good feeling I get knowing that Karl looks forward to hearing from me."

John joined e-Buddies to help make a difference, in someone life, and was surprised with the results. "I have been surprised to learn that I get as much or more out of e-Buddies than Karl" he explains. "He has taken the time to learn about me so that our e-mails are relevant and interesting. Even when I get busy and fail to write, Karl has always been faithful in writing each day."

"Karl is a great friend," John concludes. "He is totally undemanding, he remembers to write even when I forget, and he shares his life without expecting anything in return. We have remained friends for 6 years because the friendship means something to both of us!"

Congratulations to Karl and John, our e-Buddies of the Month for September!
