"My connection with Connie is something I want to keep for a long time." Nicole

Big, Connie, and Mini, Nicole, have been matched together since the middle of April. They were one of the first matches on this website and have had many calls since. Their friendship continues to grow with each call.

Age and Hometown?

Connie: I’m 81, and I live in College Station, TX (Aggieland!).
Nicole: I am 21 and from Robbinsville, New Jersey.

What impact has Big & Mini made for you?

Connie: I'm delighted to spend some time with such a lovely young woman, to hear about her life, and to feel as though I have a new friend.
Nicole: I’ve gained a wonderful connection in Connie and gained perspective.  I look forward to every meeting with Connie and hearing about her life.

Are there any significant moments you’d like to share?

Connie: She said that I'm "iconic," and I had to ask her what it means - since it has a newer meaning than the one we used to use.  And she wished me a “happy birthday” during the very first hour of my birthday.  She took me downstairs to meet her mom; that was cool.
Nicole: I always love to hear about her family, and it was so interesting to hear about a person in her family that goes horseback riding. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and it was great to be able to talk about my interest in that.

What do you love about your partner?

Connie: She loves music, and during the school year she has her own radio show which I think is really cool!
Nicole: I love how kind and genuine she is, her love for music and life, and the stories she tells. She is so interested in hearing about my life, and I love that. I also love that she is a Houston Rockets fan like myself. She always seems so happy to talk to me!
