All of your e-Buddies questions answered here!
Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "The only way to have a friend is to be one." In the spirit of those inspiring words, Ask Emerson is a feature designed to help you be the best friend you can be. Each month, we will select a question or two for response. Send your questions to eBuddiesComments@bestbuddies.org.
My e-Buddy asked for my phone number. I don't know what I should do.
As you know, e-Buddies are not allowed to contact each other via phone, send each other snail mail, or meet in person, unless prearranged by a member of the e-Buddies staff.
Your best bet would be to remind your e-Buddy of these rules. Be firm when you tell him that you are only an e-mail friend. Suggest he review the code of conduct on the e-Buddies web site, which is found at /about/conduct.html.
If your e-Buddy still insists on asking for your phone number, let a member of the e-Buddies staff know by e-mailing eBuddiesComments@bestbuddies.org.
