Who Needs Real Friends, When You Can Rent Fake Ones?

by Hazel Chua

Life gets a whole easier if you have good friends by your side. By that I mean real friends, not fake ones that you can now rent for a fee from companies like Client Partners [JP].

Friends for FireThe firm is based in Japan and offers ‘friend’ rental services to the lonely, bored, or curious. While it might sound pretty sad for the rest of us who were able to make friends and keep them without having to pay them for their time, the service is apparently a godsend for those who aren’t able to do so themselves.

As proof of that, here’s a testimony from one happy client who rented two female ‘friends’ to go out with him:

Last summer, one lonely 25 year-old named Kouichi (not his real name) rented two female friends to go to a dance club for ¥30,000 (~$341 USD). For a part time worker like Kouichi, that’s a hefty fee. But he ended up having a great time.

“There’s a feeling of security when you are accepted unconditionally,” Kouichi said, adding it was better to pay for friends than getting rejected.

To each their own, I suppose.
