The book left me cold. This Lonely mwf seeking friend one of those 'turn-my-blog-into-a-best-seller' books. The author worked in publishing, and it's pretty clear she thought this project up as a stepping-stone to getting a book deal, rather than something she did Lonely mwf seeking friend of genuine passion, which just happened to take off. I thought I'd enjoy this from an ethnographic pov. The author is an NY private school, summer camp, sorority-ing kind of woman, and I am not.

Sadly the novelty wore off pretty quickly, and I skimme The book left me cold. Sadly the novelty wore off pretty quickly, and I skimmed a lot of the book. What really got my goat was that Bertsche makes these gross generalisations that women want this out of friendship, and men want thatcompletely different, thing.

In the same book that she mentions a gay male BFF. QED gay men are not men?? Apparently all women need:. They don't understand that, as women, we crave having someone validate our feelings. And then do it twice more. As I don't do GIFs please bring to mind a suitable mental picture of your own choice here. She's a grown women who, in all seriousness, states, "I want friends like the girls in The Babysitter's Clubthat kind of bond. Some of the aspects of Bertsche's project were fun to read about, in that they represent the social cues and rules of a very particular subculture.

A coworker and potential new friend texts her, " If you're not doing anything, come over for Guinness and oysterfest. I wasn't doing anything! I'd love to come over for Guinness and oysterfest. But could I just say that? But clearly I'm not the kind of woman she'd want to be friends with.

I'm completely OK with that View all 21 comments. Jul 12, Amy Bossy Bookworm rated it liked it Shelves: book-club. I strongly suspect the author was looking for a hook for a book idea more than she was desperately seeking a BFF. In her new old: college town city of Chicago she had not only her husband, mother, and extended family including cousins she was social with, but four work friends she ate lunch with "every day" and friends through her husband that they went out with every few weeks. Thats not the lonely life, my friend. I hope. So I very much wanted a stronger read: plausible spin for this story's publication--and my reading it.

Her most offputting argument for her need of a bff was that although she alarmingly ran every single little thing possible food choices, hair and style choices, pasttime choices, etc. Spoiler alert: she's already going to brunch regularly with combinations of the many beloved friends and family members above, according to her. The interspersed studies and stats about friendship were jarring but ultimately skimmable.

Lots of negatives. And YET. Something about the various adventures she purposely goes on and her "say yes" attitude and its was extremely compelling. I really became invested in the search and the story and blew through this. The exploration of what make up a friendship and what affects compatibility was really fun.

If we lived in the same town. And if she knew who I was. And it's not only because I found Rachel's thoughts on friendship to be thoughtful 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 Lonely mwf seeking friend, and how to become closer 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 t Kindle 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.
