The State of e-Buddies

Here at e-Buddies, our job is to simply provide participants with the opportunity to make a new friend. Whether or not a match grows into a true friendship is up to the buddy pair itself; we merely ask each participant to e-mail their e-Buddy regularly for the duration of one year.

So, you may be wondering, how many e-Buddies matches go above and beyond by exceeding that one year commitment? Well, it got us wondering, anyway...so here's what we found!

In addition to the hundreds of matches that will be celebrating their one year anniversary in 2011, we knew that there were quite a few matches that have been around for even longer. After crunching some current match numbers, we found that quite a few matches are coming up on some big anniversaries in 2011:

Length of Match # of Matches
12 Years 1
11 Years 11
10 Years 38
9 Years 21
8 Years 21
7 Years 44
6 Years 30
5 Years 38
4 Years 71
3 Years 84
2 Years 148


Here are some highlights:

  • Our very first match, which began way back in 1999, is still going strong!
  • More than 500 matches have been active for longer than 2 years; that's more than 1,000 participants!
  • More than 200 matches have been active for more than 5 years; that's more than 400 participants.
Congratulations to all of these long-running matches. We're really excited to have had a hand in helping to build what we hope are true, lifetime friendships!
