The ‘Uber for friends’ plans to save millennials from loneliness

Caitlin Dewy for the Washington Post:

"After all, what millennial hasn’t found herself friendless or flaked-on at some point, thumbing desperate texts to a BFF who’s still in Pittsburgh or Des Moines?"

I mean... I see it. But I also see it crashing and burning. Friendship in the US is about authenticity first and foremost. I'm guessing that most people would pay for sex before paying for friends.
