Best Buddies

What to do after you are matched

Now that you have been matched with your e-Buddy, it is time to send an e-mail. To e-mail your new e-Buddy, e-mail

The first e-mail should be short and simple to introduce yourself and ask some questions in an effort to start to get to know your e-Buddy.

Example Introductory E-mail:

Dear Mandy,

Hello! My name is Sarah and I am your e-Buddy. One of my favorite things to do is watch movies. My favorite kind is action movies. What kinds of movies do you like to watch? I can't wait to hear from you. Have a great day!

Your e-Buddy,

After you send your first e-mail, check your e-mail for a response from your e-Buddy. Then you can begin e-mailing back and forth.

Remember, you should e-mail your e-Buddy at least once a week.
