Rent a friend in Quito, Ecuador. June 2016.

Recently I came across an interesting article about rent-a-friend. Right away I googled "rent a friend in Quito" and here it is - you can purchase friendship at your convenience, by the hour, in Quito or anywhere in the world!!! 
You can also sigh up to be a friend yourself. BTW I signed up to be available as a friend, so if you are in need of a friend in Quito, look me up.

About: is the largest online platonic friendship website in the world. is currently available throughout the world. is NOT a dating website and NOT an escort website. There is no physical contact allowed between any members and friends on the website. is for platonic companionship only.
History: was started in October 2009 in Stewartsville New Jersey by Scott Rosenbaum. The idea came from the increasing popularity of "rent a friend" companies in Japan.
Some of the ways people are using are:

-People who travel to a new city can hire a local to show them around town. 
-Someone might want to see a movie or go out to a restaurant but don't have anyone to go with. -Many Friends on have unique talents and skills. They can teach you a new language, tutor you, share a new hobby, art, dance, and much more.
 -People who travel often for business that are looking to find local Friends to go out to dinner with, go to the bar with, or watch a sports game with. 
-People who have an extra ticket to a sporting event or concert and don't want to go alone. 
 -Just looking for someone to give you personal advice. 

How the Site Works: Anyone can apply to be a friend on It's 100% free, and the friend get's to keep 100% of the money they earn. The members can contact the friends directly to arrange times, prices, and activities.
All of the profiles on are public except for the friend's contract information. Anyone can view the friend's photos, details, and read their profiles, but in order to contact the friend you must become a member. Membership fees are $24.95 per month or $69.95 for an entire year. The friends charge between $10-$50 per hour, and almost all of them are willing to negotiate or even waive their fee depending on the activity that the member wants to do.
