A new website is gaining popularity and made it onto national TV: Rentafriend.com.
Nothing sleazy as rent a ...what some politicians resorted to lately. And just like with a dating agency you can choose from a data base of people whose profile you see and select from. So what's different? You pay for the privilege of meeting these "friends" at a rate of $10-150. I need to sign on and find out who is charging that much. I'm not saying a good friend ain't worth it--but he won't charge, would he?
So who is using this growing site with over 10,000 hits a month?
Newcomers to a city (very popular allegedly in NY and other urban centers. Makes sense). And a daughter who is moving out from her elderly mother to another town for a job, is paying a friend to visit her mother several times a week. Ain't it sweet?
Why is it so difficult to meet somebody today?
In spite of all the networking possibilities and social media?
If you are Single, Divorced or Widowed and want to get back into the Dating game, if you're looking for that elusive partner, you will be interested to hear how a pro went about it. I was a matchmaker in Ireland and had my own dating agency. I'm sharing my experience and insider views with my readers. For more info see my book's website: www.NextTimeLucky.com!
I had the honor of being asked to come on the local NBC show First Coast Living twice in the last week to give dating advice. If you missed it, you can read all that stuff in my book.
