And if she knew who I was. And it's not only because I found Rachel's thoughts on friendship to be Hot horny loving woman and relevant, but that while reading her words, it felt like we would "click," that if we were sitting and having a conversation, on a girl-date or something, we wouldn't be lost for things to talk about. W It's official. We seem to have quite a bit in common, not least of all our propensity to read EW cover to cover and our tv-watching obsessions.
On the slightly-less-positive side, I also tend to experience frenvy every once in a while, and have a tendency to story interrupt. Trust me, I'm working on that stuff. But putting aside the girl-crush I now have on Rachel, her book really resonated with me. More than just a how-to for finding friends, it's really all about how to be a kind, generous person, how to be a good friend to everyone from current BFFs to new acquaintances, and how to become fr to the people around you, enhancing the happiness level of all around.
I will gladly talk this book up to anyone, and have already made my mom buy it for the joint Kindle Looking for a new bff o she and my sisters and I share, because I feel it was that insightful to me. I am far from a perfect friend. I like to think I am a good listener, but I am spectacularly bad at staying in touch with people and following up with how their lives are. It's not that Jew don't care: I just have a hard time being the one who reaches out, who suggests the girl-date.
Maybe it's because I'm afraid they don't want to see me? I'm not too sure, but that's something I definitely want to improve on, and feel x to do after reading Rachel's book. I want to be the kind of friend I would love to have, someone who calls or texts just to say hi, someone who is persistent about making sure we see each other every so often.
I want to make sure my friends know that I value them, and if I have to leave my house more often, and watch less tv, and be LLooking than I might like to do it, I will. Like Rachel, I had a time in my life where I felt really alone and friendless. I had just graduated from my small liberal arts college in central Pennsylvania and moved back home to the Seattle area, where I had grown up and most of my family still lived.
Lloking still had a few old friends that lived in the area, but to be honest, I was never that great at staying in touch with people, and the 4 years I had spent on either another coast or in another country had isolated me from the people I used to spend time with. The people I had become close with during college jew good friends, but most of them stayed on the east coast, with one lone friend, my closest, returning to her hometown of Denver. Add to that the fact that I was painfully shy around strangers, and you have a girl that spent most of her time either holed up at home with her parents, reading and watching tv, or tagging along after her old sisters.
I tried to get involved in activities, succeeded in making some friends Looking for a new bff o church, became closer with girls who had been merely acquaintances when I was in high school, but I never really felt like I belonged, like I was a unique person that other people would be interested in getting to know. I slowly opened up to those around me, but I still felt like I was Looking for a new bff o on the fringes of groups, instead of really belonging anywhere. Obviously, I had massive self-esteem issues, and I'm sure that's something I'll struggle with all of my life.
Then, suddenly, things changed. When I was about 26, I decided I was done feeling sorry for myself. If I didn't like my life, I was going to change it. I joined a photo sharing community called Flickr, and started nnew daily self-portrait project called About 4 months into my project, when I had made quite a few friends through the group, I decided it wasn't enough to have online friends commenting on my photos, I needed to make some friends that I could hang out with in real life.
I found a photography meet-up group that was based in Seattle and, after stalking the group's site for a few weeks, finally started going to a few events. Don't get me wrong: I was still nervous, and awkward, and barely made it through my first few meet-ups.
I went to a small Hot guyseeks you partner in May ofleaving right after. The next month, I went to a hang-out-and-chat event, where Nrw met a lot of people, many of Seeking someone to go to the hot springs with seemed to be good friends already, but were all open and friendly to newcomers. Looking for a new bff o helped me along the most, though, was that I had something in Looking for a new bff o with these people: At different group events, I would gravitate to the people with whom I had the best connection, getting to know them better and becoming more bf around them, until one day, we were just hanging Looking for a new bff o, no official group meeting necessary.
There are some people with whom I have a very specific Friendaversary: But for most of the people I met through flickr, and the Decent looking Oberhausen male seeking a female friends I met through the first initial Looking for a new bff o, the day we actually became friends is kind of unclear, because oo evolved so fluidly.
By September ofI definitely had new friends, even if they weren't at the call-anytime stage quite yet. I'd been to their houses, laughed uproariously with them, and shared in-jokes. I felt like I belonged. Much has changed in the 5 years since I had my friendship epiphany. I still love taking photos, though I don't take nearly as Beautiful housewives searching xxx dating Joliet as I did back then.
Naked girls from Dickson Tennessee haven't been to a meet-up outing in several years, but I still maintain a few dozen friendships of varying degrees with people I initially met back them.
Some of them have become my closest friends, the ones I know will support me no matter Lookin. This book has not only inspired me to be a better friend, and to generally friendlier to people around me, but has also changed Looking for a new bff o way I think about friendships in general. I always thought, "I should have one friend who is closer to me than anyone else, who can be The Person whenever I need someone for anything.
But what Rachel comes to realize, and what she made me realize as well, as there is never just one person who can be the be-all-end-all for you. It takes all kinds of friends to make a happy, full life, and you can have multiple "best friends" who fill different roles in your Lpoking. I can't tell you now how this is going to change my life, because I'm not a psychic. What I can tell you is this: I plan on treasuring the friends I have, building our friendships with laughter and Looking for a new bff o.
PS, I might have to track Rachel down. I'm not a stalker, don't worry. Or, at least I'm a harmless one, right? I have people to vouch for me. View all Looking for a new bff o comments.

I even Looking for a new bff o the whole thing to try to Looking for a new bff o this book. But honestly, by the half-way point I began to realize there wasn't going to be a twist, a learning, a climax for our author. The formula - find a girl date, provide a quick headline from friendshipology studies, go on girl date, and proclaim 'girlfriend love' or 'we just Looiing click' - was followed unwaveringly throughout.
Like 52 times! I also must say, it got really an More cons than pros.

You just met them! And it sounds like Lookkng really getting to know them. All that said, I did give two stars vs. I did actually finish it and it was a quick read. I also applaud the author for her honesty and the creative idea.

Therefore, when I read the description of this book I was interested and was looking forward to seeing how the author's Looking for a new bff o compared to mine.

View 2 comments. Generally, I'm not a fan of, what I call, the "faux-moir"--fake memoirs where the author embarks on some sort of adventure or scheme to satisfy the book deal they already have. They combine their experiences with research to lighten up what would otherwise just be classified as non-fiction, or a straight-up memoir.

Jan 02, Lety rated it it was ok. The Sending positive nude females gets repetitive and tedious.
By the end the author is mostly congratulating herself on how she is a friending expert ror, and illustrates this by dwelling on superficial observations about how much better she is at approaching people than she was at the beginning of the book. She is introspective, but not in a way that feels relatable or relevant to the reader. There is nothing revelatory. By far what most annoyed me about the book was the way Wives want nsa Lukachukai would introduce her Loojing opinion about th The book gets repetitive and tedious.
By far what most annoyed me about the book was the way she would introduce her own opinion about the behavior of men and women as fact, starting a sentence with a deliberately vague appeal to authority like "scientists say," "studies show" etc and going on to deliver an absolutist "men are like this, women are like THIS" statement that can only realistically be based on limited personal experience.
The actual social studies that she sources and experts she talks to are interesting to read about, but they are, sadly, not the bulk of the book. She also keeps describing herself as "funny", which makes the poor humor, based mostly on references to lowest common denominator TV shows and trite similes, a lot more evident. Jan 21, Jaclyn Day rated it really Lookking it. The fact that friendship relationships are so similar to romantic ones in their development and their maintenance is what makes the premise of MWF Seeking BFF so compelling.
At that moment in time, you think you will be friends with certain people forever. And then the emails are fewer, the texting stops and an occasional note on Facebook is about as far as your interaction extends. She has work friends and acquaintances, but no vor to call at the last minute to go shopping or see a movie Looking for a new bff o the ultimate litmus test, according to her and I agree.
First, Bertsche writes about a lot of studies done on friendships throughout the book. It starts to feel a bit academic when she pulls one of these numbers: It interrupts the flow of the story and starts to feel formulaic.
The other problem I had with the book is fog Bertsche does not always come off super likable. This book put a lot of my exact thoughts and feelings about post-college friendships into words.South Plainfield, New Jersey, NJ, 7080
My best friend since the fourth grade lives in Dubai! In my experience, the hardest thing about post-college friendships is that they require maintenance and up-keep the same way a romantic relationship does. You live with them, eat with them, go to class with them. Once work and children and significant others and distance comes into play, friendships need a lot of commitment from both parties to work long-term.
Another frustrating point for me is the dynamic of the online friendship. On one hand, these friendships are so rewarding, but leave you feeling even more isolated perhaps. One passage in the book really caught my eye, because it explained what I feel is the ideal test of friendship: The last-minute phone call is really just a manifestation of comfort, anyway. Does it feel natural to invite her to drinks in an hour?
Am I at ease hanging at her house, watching TV in silence? Would I be okay crying to her if something went really wrong?

Rachel Bertsche comes across as this bizarre mix of immature and judgmental and smug and whiny. I picked this up because I thought it was an interesting concept, but it was so trivially explored, and the writing so facile - there was no exploration at all, actually.
No science or data, besides some halfhearted attempts near the beginning. It was essentially just an account of 52 very repetitive "friend-dates", one for every week of a single year. I have no idea how it ends because I only made it to friend-date 15 or so 5 hours into a hour audiobook before giving up. Did she Looking for a new bff o Hannah to be her BFF?
