A 30-year-old administrative assistant who prefers to be only identified as Julie has launched a rent-a-friend business at milliondollarfriend.com where for $25,000 shell fly to a customers home and be their friend for one week.
Julie says shell do anything, although, nothing sexual and nothing dangerous.
Julie says when she launched her service she thought, It will probably be Paris Hilton types who take her up on her offer, but she figures people who are more reasonable who just need a friend will fit the bill as well.
Shes also hoping selling her friendship may lead to a career change, because there is little work in her area and with a Masters in counseling, shes often told shes overqualified for other jobs.
Still, Julie says her ultimate goal is to be an actress or screenwriter. In her words, It would be nice if someone noticed me.
