Rent a Friend

Hi All, Welcome!

waving dog

Welcome to today’s juicy and controversial post…

One of ethics, morals,.. would you? Could you? Have you ever? would you share if you had? whether it is for an hour or a day?

would you “rent a friend?” “or “rent yourself out?”

In a sense, for those of us who work for a boss or others, I guess we do this already to an extent, but a while ago on a money making site I stumbled upon while being poor –  I read an article about people who would pay another person to hug them.

I am not really a hugging kind of guy, so it did not appeal to me, but maybe I could reconsider my phobia… but I just shrugged this off as one of those funny to read articles…..UNTIL…..


An email pops up in my mail box asking if I would consider (not me personally, just a generic email ) being paid to be someones friend – “purely platonic” simply sometimes someone may need a friend to go to the movies or out to dinner or to a party… it sounds like being an escort to me… but the site goes on….

I make a coffee, because this could get interesting… I am actually thinking, I could be someones friend, I could be a good friend.. I think…and begin to imagine what my profile would read as I begin to drift through these profiles….It still screams escorting to me (not that I am against that) but… I remain intrigued… I take a few more sips, and then …

spit out coffee coffee everywhere, all over my keyboard doh…

“There are … reasons why you may want to rent a mom or a dad.  Perhaps you have parents who are not very understanding of your relationships, yet your significant other wants to meet them?  Rather than upset your real mom or dad with your new “boyfriend” or “girlfriend”, hire a stand-in mom and dad to take the place and pretend they are thrilled with your new partner! Your significant other will be happy, and your parents will have no clue!”

yes this is for real!

So now I am thinking, perhaps I could rent a mom, or better still when I next play my dad is harder than your dad.. I can just rent one…..

The possibilities are beginning to be endless… I am just waiting for….

grandma2  “Rent a grandma” I reckon she would love a good roller coaster or bake the meanest cake this side of the world, or ride the coolest motorbike….with just her gums….

and yes it is true, not on the same site but here…..

rent gran one  free advertising of me….



Hire me – rent me!

I am available as a paid friend should you require one….

Live the other side of the world……No problem –  I like to write.. I could be your international pen pal, I like to travel…I am kinda funny….

I can house sit, pet sit, chaperone, offer you a coaching seesion,

Perhaps you love me or my work you would like to sponsor or donate to me to support me.. that would be awesome, as we all need to live Be a pal for life – Support a pal

Perhaps you may just want to…….rent a friend, mom, dad or grandma


Have a great day….

Evolve -Trying New Things

Welcome, welcome,

As I develop the site and myself, you may see some odd things appear. This is part of my journey in trying new things, so it may be videos, or links.. I am still new to blogging.

Some may not work, but at least I had a go:)

Please bare with me “a B.I.T ” (Blogger In Training)

I would like to give a quick mention to the awesome author of who sent me a lovely email.

Please do send me emails, comments, tips, keep in touch, I love hearing from you all.

Some of my friends have asked how they can help or support me. Just by being my friend is more than enough as I have lots of Debbie Downer days, (bad down days) so emails, messages, are all good. (Sms – save my soul)

I have set up a pay pal account  to begin to support my writing and life coaching  “career”which I use to do the occasional survey. The money from this *which is pennies* then goes to help fund and  support others physically or emotionally or myself in times of desperate need.

Eventually if I ever get anyone interested in, or need of my services, I can still use paypal as a form of easy payment or send me a “BITCOIN” (I banter)

If any of my blogs touch you, help you or make any difference to you, that is awesome, please do share the love


I do not have any fancy sponsor buttons – just a link.




Be a Pal -Support a Pal:)

Peace and love

“What you spreading today?”


“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” John Holmes

Here are a few stories that come to my mind of situations in life where I have tried to do this. We probably all have our own!

A young couple in Nottingham(a town i used to live, in the uk) were getting irate because they have spent all their money on drink… And are somehow trying to get into a taxi they obviously now cannot afford… They get angrier and this is about to turn real ugly. Without thinking I walk up and hand the couple ten pounds to get home. This immediately shocks them and in they are at peace and no one gets hurt.

A friend recently was crying as she hadn’t got the money to treat her kids to nice supermarket things for over Christmas.. One low wage in the household things are stretched real tight so again I offer with a friend to get her a large hamper again handing over a note.. The friend is sobbing over whelmed.

Another friend at the end of the month has no money to get lunch and about a pound left to last. Again I offer some money and another friend seeing this also offers which then encourages another to whip him up a little picnic lunch…

Whether stranger or friend, If another human being is in genuine need, I respond.

“I’m not rich, I’m a part timer on min wage with debts of my own here but sometimes there is that pull to help another human being out.”

I think the phrase “pay it forward” is a beautiful one as I believe what goes around comes around and I have to admit whether given in joy or reluctance what I receive back is more than worth it whether it’s an emotional or physical gain.

What I’ve learned also, is that generosity is addictive, it is.. It inspires it empowers it breaks down barriers it’s life saving its humbling.


I’d like to hope that I can be more generous but I can also learn to receive off others when I am in need. I believe generosity breeds generosity.

When strangers or friends were generous to you, how did you react and how did you feel in situations where you was the generous person?

“Generosity does not have to come in monetary form. A bit of kindness can go a long way” Alexander Simmonds2018

If you haven’t seen the film “Pay it forward I recommend it”

Is it possible to change the world for the better?
