After moving to Chicago for love, Rachel Bertsche realized that her life was still missing one thing: friends. Sure, she had plenty of BFFs in her hometown–hundreds of miles away. Tired of waiting for her new best friend to come knocking on her door, Bertsche took matters into her own hands, launching a year-long project of her own: 52 girl-dates, one a week for twelve months, in search of her new best friend. Insightful and funny, Bertsche weaves the story of her dates with the latest social research to examine how difficult–and hilariously awkward–it is to make new friends as an adult.
