Review

Friendship is one of the most important elements of a happy life but it can be tough to make new friends. In MWF Seeking BFF, Rachel Bertsche weaves together her engaging and often hilarious adventures in search of a new best friend with the latest research about the science of friendship. I couldn t put it down. --Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project

Bertsche's skill as a writer and the myriad ways she finds potential dates keep things interesting.... The book is also peppered with intriguing research on topics like what makes friends click, how many friends we need and the health benefits of having friends.... A reader cannot help but root for Bertsche, cheer her successes and consider trying out some of her ideas. --Associated Press

Format: Paperback
I identified with this book to an almost embarrassing degree, as I suspect do a lot of women who read it. It's tough to make new friends, and it seems harder the older you get. It seems so easy when you're young; you catch another kid's eye in the playground or on the beach or in the park, and within minutes you're friends. At school and later at university so much of life is geared towards the social aspect; it's almost impossible to go through those experiences without making friends.

I've recently moved back home after a few years away, and I'll admit it, I'm lonely. I've lost touch with a lot of friends who live here, and a lot of others have moved away. I went to boarding school so I never really knew that many people in the immediate environment anyway. And now I've come home and I'm lonely. And this book I think has really inspired me to get out there and try and make those connections, instead of waiting for friendships to magically drop into my lap. As Rachel argues in this book, we don't judge people who go out and actively find dates, who speed-date or online-date. Actively looking for love is socially acceptable - why should actively looking for friendship be any different?

And I think she's right, most people are flattered when you show interest in them. Very few people would turn down an offer of friendship. It's just a matter of being the first to reach out. So dammit, that's what I plan to do. Starting today, I'm going to get back in touch with some of the friends I've lost touch with and make plans to meet up. Who knows what might happen after that?

I picked this book up on my Kindle after it was recommended to me. It tells of a married woman in America who moves to a new city for her husband, who is searching for new friends.

The book itself is a mix of anecdotes from her search and the science behind why we think and feel how we do when it comes to friendship. As a girl who has experienced living in new places - new countries - I could really relate to her, and was even encouraged by her search. Her story is easy to read and the science parts make up for the sometimes flat and repetitive tales of the people she meets.

Though it does get pretty repetitive after a while, I do recommend this book to anyone - man or woman - who would like to make new friends.

This book is a revelation. A look at friendship through experience and science explaining things I thought everyone but me knew. It's been a great talking piece with my friends and family as well as personally thought provoking for me

I can't recommend this book enough!

I bought it by mistake, confused with other title.
Anyway, I read it in full. There are just a few points to highlighted that I mark as it is the only thing to say.
Seems like an objective for a teenager with no experience in live, even she is married. So, she is not alone. Though does not seem to spend a lot of time with her husband given the purpose of finding a best friend forever.
I included 2 stars for these few notes relevant, but the book as a whole is not worth it, in terms of contents. I can not judge inhow good is written as I am not an expert.
