Renting a Wing Woman

Would You Be Someone's Rented Wing Woman?

This poll comes from community member ChloeIsAlive, who posted it in the Let's Talk About __________? group in our TrèsSugar Community.

A month ago my dad introduced me to the website He regretted not using it on our latest trip to D.C. as a way to find unique and bizarre people to hang out with during our time back east. While my dad was jokingly looking into possibly renting friends, I saw the site as a perfect opportunity to make easy money. And yes, I am so full of myself that I believe my friendship is worth gold — or at least $30 an hour. So I created a profile that reads, "I can converse with just about anybody. I am also very knowledgeable about the cool things going on in San Francisco. Hanging out with me is like watching the best of Christopher Walken on SNL. Amusing as hell, yet sometimes bizarre."

I posted that I am available for all sorts of fun activities, such as bowling, running errands, bike trips, prom dates and snowboard adventures. My profile was live for a mere few days when "SFCoolGuy" who is in need of a wing woman contacted me. He proposed we meet at Union Square to discuss the details of my future as his wing woman. Naturally I'm hesitant. What would you do if you were me? Is this site legit or super sketchy?
