A man in love who was determined to locate a girl he had fought in a bar did everything possible to find her and, unexpectedly, helped people make new friends in the process.
The student of the University of Calgary, Carlos Zetina, got along well with a woman named Nicole, but when he realized that he had given him the wrong phone number, he was determined not to let her escape.
Emailed 247 women named Nicoles or with variations on the name in the directory of the Canadian university, writing: & # 39; If your name is Nicole and you are from the Netherlands and you think Nietschze is depressed, send me a text message & # 39;
Nicole started sending back and forth emails and they even created a Facebook group "Nicole from the night before" to help the search, and more than a dozen of them even found themselves in a bar the next day.
The efforts of Carlos have been worthwhile since the real Nicole has been located and they plan to meet soon, since it turned out that she gave him the wrong phone number by accident.
Carlos Zetina, a student at the University of Calgary, sent an e-mail to 247 women named Nicole in college while trying to locate a woman he had quarreled with the night before and who gave him the wrong number.
According to Huffington Post Canada, Carlos sent the email because he did not want Nicole to think he was a "bad guy who did not send text messages".
In addition to hundreds of students, her message also found a way for teachers named Nicole or with similar names.
And Nicoles quickly started sending emails back and forth, according to Masters Psychology student Nicole Macmillan.
"Someone answered only the Nicoles and the group and said:" Should we all tell him that we are his Nicole, the 250 of us? "And then it exploded from there.
After receiving the email from Carols, a group of Nicoles met at a bar the following night and were surprised to discover that many of them looked similar.
Speaking of their meeting the next day, he added: "It was so strange because we showed up for a drink and we all looked strangely alike, it was really weird."
The story had a happy ending when the word reached the real Nicole on social networks through the network of homonyms.
As she is an exchange student, she did not have an email address from the University of Calgary.
"I'm the exchange student from Holland who was brought home by Carlos last night and thinks Nietzsche is depressing enough, I do not even have an email, so I did not get the beautiful email, but the powerful Nicoles helped me get in touch .
"I would love to meet everyone at some point in the future."
The real Nicole was finally tracked through social media and explained that she did not see the original email since it does not have an address from the University of Calgary
