Are you lonely? Is your social anxiety playing a big part in your inability to meet people? Now meeting people is as easy as clicking a button at where you can view more than 200,000 profiles and pictures.
The usual mantra in big cities is that people find it really difficult to meet new people or they feel socially isolated from the world because of the coldness that seems to appear from the average city person.
In the Internet age, we are able to do everyone online from ordering motion pictures to reading a book to finding a date. So it came as no surprise that a new business has started where you are able to rent a friend.
A website entitled RentAFriend, which has been in operation for about six months, now gives you the opportunity to have friends for lunch, have a friend to accompany you to a gala or have a pal to invite over when you feel lonely by simply signing up to their website and viewing tens of thousands of people.
However, it does cost you about $10 per hour but the site states “almost all of them are willing to negotiate or even waive their fees depending on the activity you are planning with them.”
This rental service is available in the US and Canada and has more than 218,000 friends for rent. All one has to do in order to rent a friend is to enter your zip or postal code to find someone in your area and if you like their photo or profile then you can hire them.
