The story that I have to tell is so unbelievable, that I keep having to repeat over and over again, because people still find it hard to believe. I found my best friend in another country, by using the Skout network. Many people think that I found a new best friend, while using Skout, but this is not true. The best friend that I found, is one that I had when I was a child, and we lost touch over the years. My best friend moved when I was in high school, and just a couple years before I graduated.
I kept in touch with my best friend, but she eventually had her number changed, and she was never able to get a hold of me again. I joined Skout as a way to find myself a date, because I wanted to have someone to bring to a wedding, which I was going to in the future. I know it was a long shot, but I figured that I would find someone interesting to take to the wedding. I used the “shake to chat” feature, which is very popular on the Skout network. The feature allows anyone to shake their mobile device, and then someone, from somewhere in the world, will show up on the screen to chat.
I was absolutely floored when a girl that looked just like my ex-best friend, popped up on the screen. We began talking, and because she looks so familiar, I asked her where she was from. She told me that she was from Norfolk, Virginia, and I was almost floored. I told her that not only was I also, from Norfolk, Virginia, but that I only lived a few miles away from the general area. We both started laughing, and as we talked some more, I came to find out that this was my best friend from childhood. This could not have happened without Skout.
We had changed so much in our facial features, that neither one of us truly recognize each other, until we came out with our stories. We both sat there and cried, and we exchanged phone information. What’s so crazy, is that my best friend is in the UK, and I completely found her by accident. She moved to the UK for a job, and now that we are talking again, I plan to visit her in the future. Our story is so amazing, that I can’t even believe it myself. Thank you Skout.
