e-Buddies of the Moment: Blossoming Buds

Each e-Beat edition, 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 Anna and Lanie!

Anna and Lanie have been matched for 6 months and have already formed a special bond with each other. Connecting from Illinois to California, the two found quickly that they have a lot to talk about. "Anna and I have a lot in common, and continue to find out things that we share. She almost always has an exciting and funny story to share with me! No matter how bad of a day I'm having, whenever I get one of her e-mails it puts me in a good mood!" Anna explains further, "Our relationship is special. Some common topics we talk about are dogs and work and traveling." Anna recently took a trip to Europe and was excited to tell Lanie all about it.

Though the two became fast friends, it took them over a month to learn how to pronounce each other's names! This quite a funny circumstance that happens in online friendships. "It wasn't until [Anna] asked me how to pronounce my name that she knew, and it wasn't until she shared her mother's book with me that I had any idea I was pronouncing hers wrong!"

The pair has a strong connection and hopes to be matched for a long time. Anna considers their friendship special and different from other friendships. "Most of my friends I talk to in person or on the phone. Lanie I just e-mail." Their blossoming friendship is proof that no matter how you communicate, bonds can form through any medium. "Anna is a great buddy, and I'm so thankful that Best Buddies paired me with her!"
