A simple missed connection couldn’t keep Carlos Zetina from trying to find the mystery girl he hit it off with at the bar.
According to Buzzfeed, he didn’t know much about her except that her name was Nicole, she thought Nietzsche was depressing, she was from Holland, and she was attending the University of Calgary.
Rather than accepting defeat after she gave him the wrong number, Zetina did the unthinkable: he emailed every Nicole, Nikki, and Nicolette in the University of Calgary directory in hopes of reuniting with the Nicole of his dreams.
In total, Zetina emailed 246 Nicoles, including students, faculty, and staff at the University of Calgary. Sadly, it wasn’t enough; the Nicole he was looking for wasn’t included in the mass email.
It wasn’t a total loss though. The Nicoles of the University of Calgary all became friends and started a girl squad called “Nicole From Last Night.” They even got together at a local pub!
As the network of Nicoles grew more powerful, the REAL Nicole eventually was added to the “Nicole From Last Night” Facebook group. Apparently, she didn’t quite have her new Canadian phone number memorized and doesn’t have a University of Calgary email account. She told Buzzfeed that “the powerful network of Nicoles helped me get in touch” with Carlos, proving once and for all that Nicoles are the most powerful force on the planet.

Surprisingly, everyone in this story gets a happy ending.
Carlos was able to reunite with (the real) Nicole, even if it meant sending out a borderline stalker-ish email.
And the other Nicoles? Well, they have each other.
