Contact Someone With Your Own Name

This post is part of My 40th Birthday Bucket List Extravaganza day.

On a whim, Kelly Hildebrandt contacted someone on Facebook with her same name, began a long distance courtship and they ended up getting married. What a romantic story to tell the grandchildren! Ever since hearing this I too wanted to contact someone with my own name. Get your mind out of the gutter, I’m aware that I’m already married and I’m not searching for future mates. I just thought it would be fun to have some correspondence with a fellow Annette White.

I turned to Facebook and had a whopping 5 choices. I selected someone who appeared to be in my age range and wrote her this note: “Hello, I realize that this is odd, but I have a bucket list and on it is ‘contact someone with your own name’, so i turned to Facebook for help in the search. Now I can check this one off my life list! You can see my list here https://bucketlistjourney.net/?page_id=381.”

I still have had no response, but maybe that Annette thinks this Annette is weird and wants to have nothing to do with her! That’s fine by me because I just accomplished one more goal on my bucket list journey!

    That doesn't count. You need to meet them in person. Or at a minimum, have a good conversation over the phone. Come on, sending an email without a response — are you going to count that? I hope not.

    I just saw this on your bucketlist and emailed Daniel J. Gregory of http://www.danieljgregory.com FUN! Ticked!

    Turns out he has an art gallery in Seattle so I’ve added visiting that and meeting the guy in person to my list! : )
