What is Rent-a-Boyfriend or Girlfriend?
As you can imagine, rent-a-boyfriend or girlfriend (called rental boyfriend or girlfriend in Japanese) is for single individuals who needs a fake partner.
The reason they need such a partner varies but it is necessary for some people.
Customers are usually 20s-40s and looking for simulated romance. Some people just want to talk someone and have a great time together.
How does Rental BF or GF Work?
The easiest way to find your perfect “Rental Boyfriend” or “Rental Girlfriend” is to search online.
Search something like “レンタル彼氏”(rent-a-boyfriend) or “レンタル彼女”(rent-a-girlfriend).
The website usually has details on how the systems work, how they charge, who is available, and so on.
It is better to compare some websites and see if they have your type.
You might need to register to see full profile of staff.
How Much Does Rental BF or GF Cost?
The cost varies from one company to another but here I’ll show you what I found.
I’ve checked a few websites for Rental BF/GF and they all have slightly different price depending on the staff.
That is, some new staff charge lower price compared to experienced staff.
Or I guess the company charges more if the staff is popular among customers.
The price is usually shown hourly and it is about 5,000 yen. So 2 hours is 10,000 yen and 3 hours is 15,000 yen.
You might also need to pay for their transportation, meals and drinks. For example, if you spend 3 hours with rent-a-girlfriend, it might cost over 20,000 yen or 25,000 yen depending on date plan.

Comments from Customers
I’ve never used rent-a-boyfriend so I searched comments from people who actually used it.
This woman is around 40 years old and she says:
I haven’t had a boyfriend for a while and I’m hoping to find a future husband this year. This is my first time to rent a boyfriend.
I chose him online and we arranged a date.
Before meeting, he asked me what I want to do and where I want to go.
I was busy that day but headed to Roppongi and met him.
He was cute! I didn’t throughly check his profile and learned that he was only 22.
I paid him first and our date started.
We had a great dinner and it was fun to be with him.
I was much older than him but he treated me very well (well, because I paid so he better).
Because we had drinks and dinner, my total cost was about 30,000 yen for 4 hours. It was not that bad. Maybe I’ll use it again.
Seems she had a quite good experience.
Another comment is from a man in his 20s:
Before actual date, the staff sent me message and we arranged our date. On the day, I was very nervous.
As soon as I met her and introduced each other, she held my hands. My nervousness eased and I felt very comfortable to be with her.
I spent 5 hours with her and I had a really great time. She gave me a small gift and sent me off at the station. I was very touched and satisfied by the service.
I personally loved this service and want to use it again.
He liked the service as well.
I’ve never used Rental Boyfriend but I’d like to try one day if I have a chance.
In the near future, there should be rental partners for LGBTQ and foreigners.
The good things about rent-a-boyfriend or girlfriend are:
-They make you happy and satisfied.
-They make you feel confident.
-They make you feel comfortable.
-They make you feel special.
-They are good at talking and praising people.
-They are very polite and you will have a great time for sure.
I think it is a good idea for shy people to try rent-a-girlfriend or boyfriend to prepare for a real date.
