Find Your Buddy
Twitter: 3:15PM on August 15th, 2017

If you signed up before the listed times, you are paired with someone. If you signed up after the listed times, please check our Twitter to see when the next update time is! Once you're paired, you will receive an email with instructions on how to find your buddy.
Finding your buddy is simple! Just type your name in the search engine above and your buddy will be listed in a pair with you (ex: [Interest]: Buddy 1 @buddy1 and Buddy 2 @buddy2 |). When you find out who your buddy is, follow them & tweet/message them that you're buddies!
If your name is not showing up in the search engine, it is because:
1. You are not paired yet because the buddies haven't been updated for the period you signed up in
2. You spelled your username incorrectly
3. You didn't submit the sign up form correctly. Please sign up here (make sure to fully submit it!)
IN ANY CASE WHERE YOUR PAIRING ISN'T WORKING OUT, PLEASE SIGN UP AGAIN.
What do I do once I find out who my buddy is?
After finding out who your buddy is, follow them on their Twitter or Instagram! Send them a tweet/message saying something like, "Hi I'm your buddy from Buddy Project."
How do I message my buddy?
Most buddies prefer to direct message each other. You can also text or video chat your buddy if both of you are comfortable with doing so.
What are some icebreakers or topics my buddy and I can talk about?
The best topic you two can talk about is what you've been paired on. Other Icebreaker topics: Music • TV Shows • Movies • Books • Sports • Hobbies • Identity (Culture, Religion, LGBTQ+, etc) • School • Work • Family
If your buddy is yourself: please sign up again and only once (for that specific interest) so you won't be paired with yourself.
If your buddy is inactive: just shoot them a tweet anyways, you never know if they're on but just don't tweet. If they still don't reply after awhile, please sign up again.
If your buddy speaks another language: this usually shouldn't happen, just sign up again please.
If your buddy's username doesn't exist: double check it's the right one by physically going onto the list of buddies, if it still doesn't work please sign up again.
If your buddy is someone you know: sign up again, this can't be avoided because we don't know which people are already your friends.
