e-Buddies of the Moment

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

This e-Beat we are featuring two amazing buddy pairs!

Our first pair connects two people in New Jersey and Canada. Craig and Patrick have been e-Buddies for over 4 years. The pair has e-mailed each other consistently and become good friends. Craig explains, "We have been together for a while now, and I feel like we have a comfortable relationship, and I think we have a lot in common." Patrick agrees that the two have a great connection. "He really shows how much he respects me as a friend to him."

The two talk about their hopes for the future, work, families and "just guy stuff in general." Cars are a common topic for Craig and Patrick. "Sometimes our conversations are lengthy, and other times just a quick hello is all that is needed." Craig sees no end in sight for their friendship. "Our relationship is no different in most ways than any of my other friendships I have, we just communicate through e-mail instead of face to face. I feel I get at least as much out of our friendship as Patrick does, and after all isn't that what being friends is all about?"

Our second buddy pair has been matched for 2 years and has sent over 7,000 e-mails to each other! Erin and Danielle love to talk about their weekend plans as well as sports. The two frequently discuss football and baseball - and they root for rival teams! "We have a lot of common interests. We talk about a lot of things, as well as share things with each other."

Throughout their friendship, Erin and Danielle have come to trust each other and be able to share anything about their lives. Erin is glad to have met a friend like Danielle. Danielle agrees, "I love e-Buddies by being able to be friends with an amazing person such as Erin. Our friendship is unique, yet common in a lot of ways. She's an awesome lady."

Thanks for being such great friends!
