[Help Thread] Looking for a cubing buddy?

My latest avg 100 is 23.xx, so I’m looking for someone with a similar average.
The goal here is to create a healthy competition and see who’ll reach sub 20 first (a litteral race to sub20). We’ll talk via PM of our progress, difficulties and of course share advice.

I’m working a full time job and when I get home I’m often too tired to cube, so I’ve been plateauing (is that a word?) for months. I believe being in direct competition against someone will give me extra motivation.

Is anyone in?

Edit: I'm editing this so it includes anyone who wants to find a cubing buddy.
Just say you want in and what you average (preferably avg100 or more so it's more accurate). Go for whole seconds unless you're sub10.

I'll edit this post with names of people wanting to be paired up.

Would you mind if I made a whole thread just for this topic?

Why not use this one ?
I'll edit it so it includes anyone who wants a 'cubing buddy'

Ok
that was the plan just make a general one. I would have been fine with you changing the name so that it can be a global thread.

I think in general this is a really good idea. I use a similar method for lots of goals in my life (running a marathon, finishing a book, eating more vegetables, accomplishing ANY goal or task etc.)

I call it "accountability partners" where you each express a given goal and hold each other accountable for working towards that goal. In this case you don't even need to be at the same times necessarily but you could each chat, encourage each other, and race to complete your individual goals of something like removing 3s off your average, improve average by 5%, learn a new algorithm set or subset etc.

I use CFOP and average 19 seconds. I am looking for a buddy. Also, I average 5.3 on 2x2, 1:25 on 4x4, and 3:35 on 5x5. If you are any of these times PM me and we can have a race, or even do relays
