A Canada college student who met a woman at a bar but somehow screwed up taking down her phone number still managed to connect using a nuclear option. Carlos Zetina, a first year student at University of Calgary, knew the woman he'd met was also a student. He also knew her first name: Nicole. Armed with these modest facts, Zetina soberly made his way to the school directory, searched for the name Nicole, then proceeded to email all 246 coeds who share the name, the Calgary Herald reports. “If you (sic) name is Nicole and you’re from Holland and you think Nietzsche is depressing then text me,” Zetina wrote in the email, which was obtained by the Star. “I’m Carlos btw I’m the guy who took you and your friend home last night... if you are the one and just don’t want to talk to me that’s ok as well.”

Many of the Nicoles (and variations Zetina looped in, including Nicolettes and Nikkis) who received the email Friday were so taken aback by Zetina's gesture that they couldn't help but poke fun at him to one another. Nicole DuGraye even started a Facebook group for all the women called "Nicole From Last Night," thereby turning Zetina's email into a way to make new friends. Ironically, the intended recipient Nicole reportedly didn't receive the email and only learned of it through social media. Lucky for Zetina, she wasn't pulling a fast one with a fake phone number and believes he just got a digit wrong. She not only wants to meet up with Zetina, but intends to hang out with all her fellow Nicoles, too. (More college stories.)
