Loneliness is real, and flirting online is fun, and maybe you don’t want anything serious, just the old back-and-forth with a looker you never have to take to dinner.

A Phrendly-promoted post on Reddit about 10 months ago makes no bones about this part of the setup, self-describing as “a new option for women to have fun and make money anywhere, anytime by texting guys.”In that same post, their bid to women goes like this: “You’re an attractive, amazing woman with a natural appeal to men.
Your flirting has driven more than a few guys wild. Don’t you wish you could earn money for your talents safely according to a schedule you set that didn’t require you to dive into the world of adult entertainment?
