The best way to find friends here is to look over the SparkTeams. Look for groups that formed based on an interest you share (quilters, Harry Potter fans, hikers, whatever-- we've pretty much got it all!) Then look to see how active the group is by checking the dates on posts. If you join some active groups, you'll connect very quickly. You can also make a lot of friends by participating in the Diet and Nutrition or Fitness and Exercise forums.
