I recently read a book that hit really close to home, called “MWF Seeking BFF.” The 28 y/o author, Rachel, moves to Chicago from NYC with her boyfriend and gets married shortly after. But, she realizes her life is missing one thing: good girlfriends. Her BFFs live all across the country: SF, NYC, Boston, DC, etc. but she is craving quality girl time in her new hometown.
In the memoir, Rachel develops a plan to go on 52 friend-dates for a year, in hopes of meeting potential new BFFs. While I feel blessed to live in a city with one of my dearest BFFs now (and some really great gal pals!), I definitely was in the same boat as Rachel when I first moved to SF and am continually looking to expand my friend circle. (The more the merrier, no?!)
I found the book engaging, funny and inspiring! I could totally relate to her lifestyle and have had a number of similar experiences. (When I first moved to SF I was determined to meet a friend on the train and low-and-behold, I randomly did! She’s now in one of my book clubs.)
I’d totally recommend it! Love, Nik
