      DreamViews Buddy Program Application Thread

      The DV Buddy Program application has been discontinued indefinitely. If you're looking for a buddy, check out this thread: DreamViews Buddy Program - Buddy Search Thread



      Do you want to share your passion for dreaming with others, but feel really uncomfortable talking about your dreams in real life? Have you ever wanted a close lucid dreaming buddy, but couldn’t get any of your friends interested? Do you want a partner to assist you with improving your lucidity, with a personal twist that you can’t get from articles and tutorials?

      Introducing the DreamViews Buddy Program!

      The DreamViews Buddy Program is designed to help members meet other members with similar skill levels and interests, and form long-lasting, helpful partnerships, like many you see on the forum, such as:

      ~Dreamer~ and CanisLucidus
      JadeGreen and DawnEye11
      Sensei and FryingMan

      Plus, you have the option to request a mentor - a more experienced member that can give helpful advice in a one-on-one setting. It’s much like the classes in DVA, but with a more personal touch. Of course, we also need volunteers to be mentors, so if you would like to help, please do!

      Here’s how it works:

      1. You fill out the application at the bottom of this post (which takes about 5-10 minutes).
      2. We use your answers to pair you with the optimal partner for you.
      3. You and your partner communicate with each other for the span of a month. You can share dream journal entries with each other, keep each other accountable, compete to complete challenges, or even try to summon each other in a lucid!
      4. After the month is over, you can apply again for another month with another member, or you can choose to continue the current partnership.

      Here’s what we expect from you:

      • You must be a member of DreamViews for at least a month before applying for the program. This is because some new members stay for a few days, and then are never heard from again. Since this program requires at least a month-long commitment, we want to make sure that members will actually stick around for the full month. Speaking of which…
      • You must commit to at least a full month of at least semi-regular communication with your partner. We understand that life can get in the way sometimes, but we do expect you to make an attempt to maintain contact during that time. Otherwise, you may be removed from the program for the remainder of the month.

      If you are interested, feel free to fill out the application here:

      http://goo.gl/forms/PAECj8r0Ao - Closed until further notice

      Once you have completed the application, please PM me (spellbee2) to confirm your application.

      Applications will open the 15th of each month, and remain open until 11:59PM Eastern Time on the 28th of the month. After the pairing process is complete, look for a new thread in General Lucid Discussion to be posted on the first day of the following month.

      I'm really excited about this program!
      My dreaming partnership with Canis has been incredibly beneficial, and continues to be a great source of motivation and encouragement.
      I hope other members have the same success with their buddies!

      Were making dreaming partners an official thing on Dreamviews now? Wonderful! I think the buddy system will be good for keeping new users interested and experienced ones from drifting away.

      Excellent idea, spellbee! Thanks for conceiving and taking the lead on this great program.

      My partnership with Dreamer has literally been the single most helpful step I've taken in my entire lucid dreaming practice, no exaggeration. I'm excited that we're making "DV Buddies" an official concept and helping people to get partnered up to help one another.

      Good luck to everyone joining up for the program! I highly recommend giving this a try.

      Yeah! You made our relationship public! I went to JARED'S and he said YES!

      I promise you I'm not crazy...or am I?

      This is precisely what I have been looking for! Definitely joining this program the next round as I've missed this month's deadline.

      I haven't put myself in the pool for a new dreaming buddy since I'm still happily paired up with CanisLucidus, but I'll be helping out behind the scenes with the pairings.

      I guess I'm lucky that the person who got me on this site just happens to be my best friend. I can talk to Zukin about any dreams I have, it's awesome! Though she's more advanced than I am. Talking to someone who's more at my level might be beneficial!
      And it would hold me accountable for my DJ. I've been neglecting the poor thing lately D:

      (like in Sensei's competition; I was competing and working with people around my own level, and that was my best lucid dreaming ever!)
      I may apply tomorrow when it opens up again :O

      Sorry guys, been kinda busy the past few days/weeks/solongI'veforgottenwhatbeingstressfreeislike.

      The registration link for May is now OPEN. If you already registered for April and would like a new buddy, there is now an option on the first page to reuse your answers from last application. So what are you waiting for. GO, REGISTER NOW!

      Sorry I'm confused about the rule about how long you have to be a member before aplying. On this page it says a month but on the page you fill out your information in, it says a month after the first day of the program period. Which is correct?

      Both, kind of. You must have your one month anniversary on the forum before the first day of the program period. For example, since this month's program starts on May 1, you have to have joined the forum before April 1.

      I phrased it that way because your application date doesn't matter. So if you joined March 31 and you apply April 18, you're still eligible since you'll have been a member for a full month before the program starts May 1.

      Get your sunscreen and bug spray (you know, for the June bugs), the June application is now open! There's even a shiny new question about time zones and stuff.

      I see slight inconsistency in your dream goals
      if you have 100+ now and there are barely 200+ days left until 2016
      you need to either have a goal of become lucid twice a night
      or have at least 300 before 2016
      (or possibly Time Dilate reality and add a few hundred extra nights)
      Sure LUCID DREAMS are all fun and games until someone loses a third eye.

      I wanted to offer a little feedback about the questionnaire. It might be helpful to ask people how many dreams on average they recall a night rather than a 1-10 scale. I say this because I wasn't sure what number to give myself, and people can have widely different opinions here.

      Thanks for hosting this, and I look forward to the next match up!

      I agree, I think the 1-10 scale opens the door for self-criticism ("Well, how good do you think your recall is? Do you think you're a 10? Really?). With an actual number of dreams, things are more consistent, and there is less chance of dreamers over and under-reporting.

      Not a problem at all. We're dreamers are we not? Anything is possible.
