Rent a friend website launches for lonely in UK 英國成立租友網站,服務寂寞人士

A new service is being launched in the UK for lonely people to hire a "strictly platonic" friend to go to the movies or a restaurant with them.
The‘Rent a friend’service has already become a hit in the US where more than 218,000 people have signed up to spend time with strangers.
Now UK members can pay £;15 to join the site and browse potential friends in their area before hiring them out for a friendship session.
However, don’t get the wrong idea, you really are only hiring a platonic friend to spend time with… if you turn up expecting more you might need to call a lawyer.
A spokesperson for the site said: "You can rent a local Friend to hang out with, go to a movie or restaurant with, someone to go with you to a party or event, someone to teach you a new skill or hobby, or someone to show you around an unfamiliar town."


get the wrong idea:片語,產生誤會、把事情想歪了。例句:My girlfriend will definitely get the wrong idea if I start shopping for baby seats.(如果我開始採買嬰兒座椅,我的女友肯定會想歪了。)
turn up:片語,證明是、結果是。例句:They turned up having done no preparatory work.(結果證明他們沒做過準備工作。)
hang out:片語,閒晃、廝混。例句:Don’t hang out with that guy any longer.(別再和那個傢伙鬼混了。)
