Wondered before if this is ever a real thing.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

Trick question ? You can't rent a friend, cause you can't put a price on friendship <a href="http://www.socialanxietysupport.com/forum/images/smilies/lol.gif" border="0" alt="" title="" >:-)</a>






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

What if you rent the friend and return them a week late? What's the fee for that? Is there a drop box for late night returns?

I didn't know this was a thing. But I don't like the idea of paying someone to pretend to like me.

I've thought of signing up in order to offer friending services, but I'm honestly so unfriendly that i'd feel bad for them

Even shy people can be sassy sometimes...

Nah but I'd be interested in trying out AI. Cleverbot was pretty entertaining but a bit too simplistic.



Lucy's bitten
Neck is bleeding bad
The teeth have long departed
Yet the desire burns strong
On in desire for destruction
One on which she'll depend
One that ceases to deepen
Too near bitter end


Black through the mountains
She turns her loosening ring
Guardian angel sings
"I think you've lost your wings, but you're still yours
You're still yours, you're still yours"

If I would ever think of renting a friend it would likely not even last for half of the day.

you're not really threatening to be a friend. so nothing. you'd have to try harder to scare me. i can tell we're not going to be friends anyway.
