She's been beta testing it in the UK and Australia for several years, and now she's ready to make it official in the U. It's for anyone who wants a little help from a friend, including those who’ve dated online so much that they've grown weary from all the swiping and endless disappointment.Now you can pass on this dreaded task to your trusted surrogate and let him or her do all the grunt work — and, even better, deal with all the rejection.Have you ever wanted to grab your friend's phone and seize control of their disastrous dating life?
