Having friends can be complicated at times, especially if you're Whodini, and none of your dictionaries can help you understand what they mean. Simplify your friend situation by not having real ones, thanks to Frently.
Just-launched and already proclaiming itself the "#1 friends for rent service in the world", Frent's a database of chums-for-hire, matching people desperate for platonic human interaction with others who're willing to "cash out on [their] talents", which apparently all involve putting up with people so annoying they need to rent friends. A comprehensive search field makes finding the perfect stranger easy, as each prospective rentee must fill out a detailed profile describing their physical appearance, education level, if they have a car, and what activities they're up for (e.g., cooking, extreme sports, advice...); every "friend" sets their own hourly/flat rate, though they may waive it for extenuating circumstances, e.g., you paying for concert tix, because the irony watching you sing along to "You've Got A Friend" is priceless. The current stable includes Hattie, a manicurist in Vegas who loves music and writes poetry; Fabiano, an IT professional in NYC whose interests include, among other things, "valet"; and Martin from Glendale Heights, IL, who apparently only finished primary school but for $80 an hour will "provide security, event planning, or a second opinion" (he'd suggest you hold out for a better educated rent-a-friend).
Once your paid hangout's over, Frent requests you log back on and rate your experience -- hopefully you didn't have to go home at 10, because otherwise you won't know if they're actually a freak.
