 The company said that it was definitely not a dating website and meant for people who are lonely, without the expectation that things will move beyond a platonic friendship.

It added that if anyone were found to be outside the terms of service, they would remove them from the site.

Users can sign up on the site as either a 'member' or 'friend', with members being those who are looking for a friend and friends being the ones who want to be the new bro for a fee of up to 60 dollars an hour. (ANI)

What do you think about this idea, would you hire a friend? Do you think we need a similar concept here in India?
