My Yearlong Search for a New Best Friend
Rachel Bertsche

When you move somewhere new, you might try a few things to make new friends, like join a club or go to a mixer. And if you're looking for a new best friend, you might have to kick it up a notch, right? That's just what Rachel Bertsche did after moving to Chicago to be close to her boyfriend-turned-husband.

While she had childhood and college friends, they lived too far away for the bonding that might start with an impromptu shopping trip or happy hour and lead to emotional intimacy and shared secrets. Not one to just sit around, Rachel took charge and committed to going on 52 friend-dates, one a week for a year, to find that elusive BFF.

Starting with meeting potential friends through mutual friends, she soon branched out to other logical places: work, her blog, book clubs, and yoga class. She then explored more unusual terrain: a want ad in her online essay; improv classes; Grubwithus, a group of like-minded people who tries out new restaurants; and yes, even RentAFriend!

She eventually realized that if she was going to cultivate genuine friendships, she needed to continue seeing some of the women she met, which had her juggling more than one date a day at times! While you might not go to these lengths, you will discover real honesty, insightful and helpful tips, as well as some hilarious and mortifying situations that will have you laughing out loud.
