The Choice Is Yours

Matching Update

We’re improving daily at helping you find the perfect BuddyMatch for the ultimate in accountability. We’ve updated our form to help you make more specific choices to match more quickly and more specifically. Read on to see some of our improvements.


Match in Different Timezones

Want more matches? Now you can match with someone only in your timezone, +/- 1 hour from your timezone or in any timezone. Although we believe the best results will come from someone in your own timezone, you can get more matches by choosing others as well. The default for current users is +/- 1 hour.

Choose Your Habit

Want better matches? We’ve standardized the categories and the most popular goals and habits.

Choose Your Exact Age Range

One of the most common reasons people would decline BuddyMatches was the match would be out of their preferred selected range. Now you can choose an exact age range of your Buddy.

Choose Your Educational Level

If you’re working on your Master’s thesis, perhaps you’d prefer to work with someone also working on theirs.

Choose How Broadly to Match

Now you can choose to only match with someone who chose your habit or someone in the entire category. If you haven’t been getting matches, try broadening your category.
