Roomapes was started by rentpayers who were frustrated with the crapshoot process of picking roommates. Sure, you might have previously met them at some social function or even had a conversation at a coffee shop, but how in the world do you find out how they behave as a roommate?

New Internet Startup Offers a "Real" Virtual Penpal

Monday, 27 August 2007

Lafayette, IN, August 08, 2007 --(PR.com)-- An Internet startup is offering a new type of online social experience. On MyTrueBestFriend.com people can now create their own online alter ego to be an email pen pal. Users create a profile of their ideal best friend with as much detail as they wish and shortly afterwards they will receive a real message from their friend. On the other end is a team of writers assuming the identities of the users’ friends that actually write the correspondence. Each identity is assigned to a specific writer to ensure continuity. Over time a meaningful relationship will develop between a user and his or her virtual friend.

MyTrueBestFriend.com charges no fees to register for the service or to remain a subscriber. However, it does provide the ability for members to send “gifts” to their friends. Friends that are well gifted will probably write frequently and with a great deal of enthusiasm, friends that are neglected will be a little less enthusiastic about writing. MyTrueBestFriend.com’s C.E.O. Jacob Hilt said, “This site is going to set a new paradigm in social relationships over the Internet. The idea of pen pals has been with us for a long time, but to my knowledge, nobody has ever done anything like this before.” Mr. Hilt is willing to accept any interviews from the media. All requests should be directed to
