Man Emails All 246 Nicoles at School to Get a Date

Man Emails All 246 Nicoles at School to Get a Date

According to HuffPo, Carlos went to the effort of sending the email because he was anxious she would think he was "a bad guy who didn't text back".

Another student, called Nicole Thompson, said she spoke with the original Nicole and put her in touch with Carlos, who she said described himself as a 'hopeless romantic'.

The man, known only as Carlos, says he took a young woman named Nicole and her friend home on Thursday night.

From there, a Facebook group called "Nicole from last night" was born, amassing nearly 100 Nicoles and variations thereof. "If it was me, I'd be a little horrified about how this all played out", said Nicole DuGraye, one of the 246 people copied on the message.

"If you don't fit this description then ignore and if you are the one and just don't want to talk to me that's ok as well", Zetina wrote in the email. "If you name is Nicole and you're from Holland and you think Nietzsche is depressing then text me".

Just 11 hours after the mass email had been sent, a group of similarly-named women met up for some drinks at a nearby pub.

"I read this email and I thought 'this is hilarious, '" Thompson said in a phone interview with Daily Hive, "I didn't know if I should delete it because it wasn't for me".

Boy meets girl, girl gives boy wrong number: some people might take it as a hint, but one Canadian student decided it was a challenge.

Intensifying Hurricane Florence could strike U.S. Southeast
Earlier Monday, coastal communities in North Carolina ordered evacuations, and SC ordered evacuations for its entire coastline. Hurricane Isaac - which late Sunday became the fifth hurricane of the season - is heading west towards the Caribbean.

"We met at the campus bar and we talked and had struck a pretty interesting conversation", said Zetina.

After receiving the note the next day and reading the message, a group of the Nicoles got together to form a Facebook group in an attempt to help Carlos connect with the real Nicole.

Another woman who received the message, Nicole Larsen, said she felt "happy to be a part of a love story."

As you might imagine, the 247 Nicoles who hadn't met a Carlos in a bar the previous night were rather bemused to receive the email, with many sharing screenshots on social media.

She is expected to attend the next meeting of the Nicoles, along with a least 25 more women.

"We're planning to hang out maybe next week", said Zetina.

Lucky for Zetina, she wasn't pulling a fast one with a fake phone number and believes he just got a digit wrong.

"That was one thing we were really cautious about, [not contacting him] until we found out who this girl really was and whether or not she meant to do this".
