Need a Friend? Rent One Online

crimeandpunishment writes “Housewives, college students, and others are working for a website that charges users an hourly rate for their companionship. No, it’s not an escort service….at least it’s not one ‘with benefits.’ It’s a site called rentafriend.com, that’s trying to carve out a niche in the ‘everything’s available online’ business world. The seven-month-old site, patterned after hugely successful sites in Asia, has nearly 2,000 members who pay either a monthly or yearly fee to check out the pictures and profiles of more than 160,000 potential pals.” I thought Craigslist had already cornered the market on renting a friend for an hour or two.
