I'd pay you to be my friend.

I was actually joking about renting myself out as a friend not long ago. I need the cash. Unfortunately, it would have to be text only, since I can't leave the house, talk on the phone, or do videochat. Don't think anyone's going to pay for that.

I love Society. It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics. Just what Society should be.

Having a therapist felt like renting a friend. Recently I tried Replika AI thinking I could turn it into a free therapist/friend of sorts. Then I got discouraged because the AI wasn't as advanced as I'd hoped. Maybe if I kept at it long enough the responses would get better but I think I'll wait for whatever comes next.

The website looks like the kind of thing on a Seth Rogen comedy type film. Christ, what a weird concept? If you're paying someone to be there then they're not your friend. It's a complete oxymoron. What the hell?

What's the point in it? They're only doing it for the money. So it will be fake from the start to end.

I'm thinking this would have to be the hardest job on the planet. They ask you for your Facebook and you realize you'll never get rid of them and say no and they sue you for false advertising.

You don't have to rent a friend. They're lots of people out there who will pretend to be your friend simply because they want something from you/ want to take advantage of you. No need to pay them up front.

Think it would be best for an activity partner or guide service. Like someone could hang out with you while they teach you about their hobby that you are interested in(blacksmithing, fishing, etc).

What do friends even do? I have so few social skills I wouldn't even know what to do, even if I had friends. Most of the things I enjoy are solitary activities. Renting friends seems, just DM a stranger.
