Thank you for taking the time to post in the MyFitnessPal support center. If you are looking for a “buddy”, may we suggest going to our website at Just sign into the members log in area with the same username and password as you do with the app.

Once you are online go to the “Community” tab. There you can either join in on or create your own forum topic in search of a partner for your new fitness journey. In the Community tab, you will see a list of our main public forums (such as Introduce Yourself, Success Stories, Food and Nutrition, etc.) Click any one of these main forums to see the list of topics that have been posted in that forum. Once you’re looking at the topics, you will see a “New Topic” button towards the top right. This will let you start a brand new thread. Or, if you click any of the existing topics, you’ll then see a “Reply” button in the top right. These two tools should let you start new topics, or respond to any existing topic that interests you.

We have many users looking for the same thing so hopefully finding a partner will be fairly simple. We have also implemented a “Groups” feature online, where you can join in on or create a group of users with similar interests. Just go to the “Community” tab and then the sub tab “Groups” to get started.

In the Community tab you will also see the “Find Members” sub tab. There, you can search for members in your age group or area and invite them to be your friend. Please do not get discouraged if you do not hear back from them. We have many members who prefer to be private, but we also have many that are looking for friends.

You can also like us on Facebook or Twitter and reach out for some friends there as well.

Hope this helps.
