“By recognizing that a person’s time is valuable, Phrendly is able to keep people motivated and focused while keeping time-wasters and scammers at bay. Sips may be used across multiple conversations.”Phrendly says it uses a “unique vetting process” to verify the users and manually review profiles, making sure there’s no scamming, though arguably, getting paid to flirt and never have to meet up is, in some universe, a kind of feminist scammer dream for women: Commodifying the chase without ever having to give up the goods.

“The chemistry experienced within online exchanges frequently doesn’t translate in person,” she wrote.
