Now you can rent girlfriends/boyfriends on FB to improve your image
Twenty-four-year-old Sophia is smart, pretty and has hopes and dreams of getting to grad school.
And for $5 she will be your girlfriend.
"It's not a big deal really," she says, at the end of what has been an altogether very peculiar week.
"It's just easy to do... I just tick 'in a relationship'."
Sophia is one of many women - and a few men - who have essentially brought the age-old industry of escorting to the world of social networking.
Now, instead of hiring someone to grasp your arm and go out to a party or dinner - it's all about looking good online.
"It's mostly guys trying to make someone else jealous," Sophia explains. "Or to make their profile look like they've got girls all over them."

9. sad & weird
seems like it would decrease potential friends. And attract people you are not attracted to & then can't scrape off.
Sophia ("Wisdom") doesn't seem very wise.
