Chinese New Year surge prices for fake girlfriends

Thanks to an increase in people using their smartphones, an app named Hire Me Plz has been created to help men look for fake girlfriends.

Single men are able to hire girlfriends for as little as 1 yuan (12p) to 1,999 yuan (£230) an hour.

However during Chinese New Year prices can surge to up to 10,000 yuan (£1,154) a day.

Of course, proving that rich people everywhere are ignoramuses.

What's your excuse?

He's been reading your comments for years.

It only seems like years to you because getting humiliated makes time creep by. I've only been posting here for like ten months. But hey glad to see you couldn't help scratching that itch.

Were you the foster kid that put his hand in the flame multiple times?

I'm nearly old and don't have any need for fake girlfriends, unlike Mr. Trump who has a fake wife, fake friends, fake financial statement, fake net worth, fake facts, fake hair, fake religion, even a fake presidency. Fake, fake, fake, fake fake, fake, and fake.

Won't quibble about the other things, but Trump is the real president.

How can he be a president if he got fewer votes? Maybe America should try a democratic system.

As for Mr. Trump's love life, it is sad when all a man has to make him an attractive partner it is money. President Temer has a wife younfer than half his age, but he is a poet, a professor, became rich as one of the foremost Brazilian legal minds, was one of the framers of Brazil's Constitution, was the Secutirity Secretary of the richest Brazilian state, was a representative for almost three decades, presided the lower house of our Congress three times, was twice elected vice president. His accomplishments speak for themselves. A man shall not live on his money alone.

Maybe America should try an invasion of Brazil? There would be absolutely nothing your pathetic country could do about it. Just another reminder of your utter impotence.

Thiago is a balding lonely 59 year old public school teacher in if I had to guess Racine Wisconsin.

We would crush you the same way we crushed the Paraguayan aggressor and repelled the British invader. Prophet Bandarra taught that Brazil is fated to rise like a lion crush Evil with its heel.

No, I am not. I am a handsome, even if barely balding, Brazilian and I am proud of my country and its moral superiority.

You understand nothing of my work, Thiago.

Yes, I do. The Prophet taught that Brazil will lead the word against the Serpent and be the Fourth Rome.

What about imposing rent controls?

Perhaps fake girl friends prove cheaper than real ones.

"Perhaps"? At 12p a day?

Isn't £230 an hour < £1,154 a day?

That's the first thing I noticed.

But who needs a fake girlfriend for an enrire day. I fuess this "day" price is for a few hours' work.

"Isn’t £230 an hour < £1,154 a day?"

If someone wants you for 1 hour, there's communication and travel time to contend with and it's likely to actual consume 2-3 hours of time. So, you're likely only able to bill 3-5 hours of time for a full days work. Whereas, the daily rate, is probably only for an 8-12 hour period. So, it's probably roughly the same total pay with less hassle.

Yes, in fact my sister number two prostitute in all Kazakhstan. Your comment very nice!
