1) Where do I sign up?

Under the "Buddies" tab there is a page titled "sign up." Click on that!

2) How long will it take for me to get a buddy?

buddies are updated  a few times a week. it all depends on when you sign up, but it won't take more than 1-3 days.

3) How will I know buddies are updated?

follow @ProjectBuddy on twitter and enable tweet notifications, and make sure to check your email!

4) How will I find my buddy?

Read the page "Finding Your Buddy." It tells you how to find your buddy if you're having issues as well.

5) Why haven't I been paired yet?

there are only three reasons why this might be occurring: the update you're on isn't posted yet, you spelled your username incorrectly, or you didn't submit the form correctly. sign up again if you think you spelled your name wrong or submitted the form wrong.

6) My buddy isn't talking to me. What do I do?

i'm sorry about that, please sign up again if you want to. we unfortunately can not control if people talk to their buddies.

7) How many times can I sign up?

You can sign up as many times as you'd like.

8) How can I help out?

You can also apply to become a Buddy Project writer (write for bp tab) and keep signing up to be a buddy!

9) Can you pair by mental illness?

at the moment, i feel like pairing by mental illnesses would do more harm than good. i don't want buddies focusing on their mental illness, as it could trigger them and/or their buddy.

10) Can I still sign up if I have school/other obligations?

Yes, just make sure that you tell your buddy about these things and they're aware you won't always be active certain times.
