The subtitle of MWF Seeking BFF (“married white female seeking best friend forever”) is my yearlong search for a new best friend, and that’s exactly the mission Bertsche chronicles here: her year-long project to find a best friend in a new city. After leaving her lifelong best friends behind in New York and moving to Chicago with her husband, Bertsche decides she needs a local best friend, and the best way to find “the one,” she determines, is to go on 52 “friend dates” throughout the year. The narrative is infused with the author’s bubbling personality, and she includes research on friendship; MWF Seeking BFF is similar to Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project in this way, though this is a less rigorous, more fun read. Recommended for anyone who’s ever had to move to a new place and make new friends, but especially for women in their 20s and 30s.
