I confess that when I found this book....I giggled like a school girl.
I will also confess that I used to think that I have trouble making friends. I know now that this is entirely untrue! I just need to look for people with common interests and children that like carbs and candy. It's also helpful if I don't live in Utah.
I really enjoyed reading about Rachel's adventures in friend making and I could see myself doing some of the same things. In fact I DID do something similar when I lived in Utah. I was rejected from Mom's Club so I decided to put an ad on meetup.com.
Hi! I'm a married mom of two brilliant children looking for people to chat and eat delicious, preferably chocolate desserts with. The ideal friends will have passion for parenting and a great sense of humor. A love of reality television and a willingness to get out of your pajamas and go to the park with the kids is a must. I'm a Mom's Club Reject that is fairly new to Utah and needs some adult conversation. I like hanging out with my husband but I need some real friends!I had a few people respond and meet me, but most of them wanted to sell me something. I did get one real friend out of this deal so all was not lost!
I have a 2-year old boy and a 1-year old girl and they would like to meet some like-minded children to play and eat cookies with. We are looking forward to a fun summer of going to the pool, parks and other fun activities!
If you would like to meet up for some summer fun and make some friends, please contact me! If you have been rejected by Mom's Club you are welcome here! Come to a Moms Meetup to share experiences, find advice, give support and make new friends. All moms are welcome!
I loved that Rachel joined two book clubs and created a dinner club. I thought her improv class was a brilliant way to meet people and marveled at how many days a week she was able to go on friend dates without neglecting her new husband.
The rent-a-friend, made me really uncomfortable. I don't even think I could have gone through with that one.
One thing that I've found in my search for friendship is that when I find meet people that end up being my friend....we just click! And sometimes that person doesn't drink coffee...and that's okay.
On a scale of 1 to 5, I give MWF Seeks BFF 3 1/2 awkward hugs.
