RABF – App That Let’s You Rent A Boy Friend. Wait, What???
Orrr rather hello crazy world….!!!
Ahhh you must be thinking why am I calling the world crazy. Trust me, after reading the next couple of paragraphs below, you are going to utter the same.. or even more…!!!
You must have heard about companies or mobile applications that lets you rent cars, clothes etc. Which I know are for some extent necessary in some situations.
Well, the crazy news I heard recently is about the mobile application that was launched in Mumbai and Pune on 15th of August.If you are thinking about this application is for social cause as this was launched on the independence day, ummm drop that thought. Even though the app developers might think it is for a social cause, I definitely don’t think so.
This application is called as RABF. Which stands for (be ready to read and face a brain freeze…!!!) Rent A Boy Friend…!!! (Like, seriously???)
So, this app is targeted the youth(read it as girls), who are under depression or suffering due to loneliness. Through this app, you can rent a boy friend. You can take him out for lunch and spend ‘quality’ time with him..!!!
Want to know further??? Well for FYI, when you opt for renting a guy (you can read it as a boy friend), there will be some good number of psychologists. Who will test you and they will let you know whether you really need a boy friend or not. By the way, this is definitely not a free session. For consultation you got to spend 500 INR. If the doctors/psychologists say yes, then you can choose boy friend from a list of guys, according to your ‘budget’.

Yes of course there is a budget factor dude. If the guy is not a ‘model’ type (you know what I mean), then per hour you got to pay 500 INR. If you want good looking, models as your ‘rented’ boy friend, then be ready with 2000 INR per hour. If you have ever dreamt of roaming around with a celebrity boy friend, gal you need to pay 4000-5000 INR per hour. (Just to keep you grounded, celebrity doesn’t mean, you get to roam around with Hritik Roshan.)
I hope you still there…!!! haha. I have survived after checking details on the news. I hope you did too.
Post getting to know this app, ONLY one word came to my mind – “Why???” (Same tone the way Chandler says.)
This is my honest opinion:
They say, men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. Men can never understand women. Well, this seems to be an excellent example.
Why on earth, girl with depression chooses boy over money…!!! Spending money on such app, to get boy, whom you barely know. Who I can bet is not really interested in your crap. Who is ultimately earning money at the end of the day is definitely not around you for your ‘company’. He is not going to be with you like forever.
Forget about the healing, what about your safety??? Our country has been declared as the number one country when it comes to the most unsafe place for a woman. What if the hired boy friend of yours, makes you the ‘news’ on the next day’s newspaper???
I mean with the amount of money you spend ‘hiring’ these men, you can do hell lot of things gal. Feeling depressed??? Get out of your home. Go shopping (my first favorite thing to do with money when sadness try to conquer me. Ahh it’s a therapy. ), donate money to someone who is in need. Trust me, sometimes the smile you bring on their faces can make your heart smile. Help animals. Feed them. The gratefulness in their eyes can make your soul dance with happiness. Take yourself out on a good dinner. Food is magic. A good food can make your day a happier one…!!!(I don’t know who all will agree. But I know my baby sis will definitely agree. We both order good dinner, in order to end our sad days on a happier note. It totally works for both of us. ) Go out and try some adventurous sports, travel, make memories.
You tend to make wrong decisions and try anything and everything to feel better, when you are emotionally high. Depression is something sensitive and I am glad people are opening up about it. I really hope none of my beautiful readers are going through any serious emotional pain. If so, I am always there to listen. 🙂
As per one of my friends, it might be a good option for some girls who are suffering from loneliness. Yes, I might not have come across such gals. But thats ok. All I can say to such girls is to learn self love. That will definitely help them in long run.
Your life, your choice. But just make sure you don’t regret your choices.
Be wise, stay safe. Love yourself. Andddd shop till you drop. Stay happy gal. Life is short to be nothing but happy…!!! 🙂
