The advice you've been given thus far is right on the mark, but I do want to add two points:
First, find the spark teams that share your interests/goals and post regularly. The more you make the effort to interact, the more folks will just naturally gravitate your way because they'll see that you have so much in common.
Second, take your time. Just learning the site can be a bit overwhelming when you begin, but you'll get the hang of it if you take the time to explore. And when you do, you're likely to be astounded by all Spark People has to offer!
You can go to anyone's sparkpage and add them as a friend. I personally like to read blogs or message board posts to find people who have the same goals or experiences as me. The more friends the better!! :D

How do you make friends here? Just like this! Feel free to contact me any time.
Joining teams, posting in the bulletin boards. Also, read and respond to others' posts. Click over to their pages...read their blogs and comment on them. Write your own blogs. Track your stuff...update your status.
And before you know it, you'll have sparkfriends coming out your ears!

Hello!! I am also very new to this. Still get lost sometimes but, If you want to chat you can click on my name and click on add as spark friend on the right of the page. not sure what happens after that but we can find out. hope to hear from you. dee
P.S. I believe if you look to the right of the START page you can click on Make my Spark page.
I am so confused. I am still trying to learn the site. I am getting the hang of it, however, I cant seem to get my page set up correctly and have not a clue how to meet people. I have joined challenges and groups for motivation. Sometimes, I just need a friend/ or a person to talk to or ask ???? to... Any body know what/how to do this?
