MWF Seeking BFF: My Yearlong Search for a New Best Friend

MWF Seeking BFF: My Yearlong Search For A New Best Friend - Rachel Bertsche This book really hit home for me, as I am also a newly married MWF that could use more BFFs in her life. In fact, it may have hit too close to home.Over the course of the book Bertsche goes on 52 "friend dates" in search of a new best friend. I like that she intersperses the dates with all kinds of scientific data about friendship, though it did make me depressed at the beginning. "The average person has 120 good acquaintances and friends? I'm not even close! Oh noes!"Watching the dates happen and friends come and go was more fun than I thought it would be, but the book was a little too "put down-able" for my liking. My favorite part was when she struggled with what a best friend is in mid-life as opposed to in our teenage years, as there was a lot of good stuff to chew on.Interesting book, some motivation if you could use a few friends of your own, but nothing mind-blowing.
