It’s not all doom and dan­ger. Here are three times the shar­ing econ­omy won at life

THE UBERPOOL MATCH

Pic­ture the scene: woman flees bad date, di­als an UberPool. Ends up in the back seat with a hand­some stranger. A year later, they’re still to­gether… Not a Ni­cholas Sparks novel, but the real-life story of Hay­ley Mitchell, 27, and her now-boyfriend Char­lie Al­gar, 28. AIRBNB ROOMIES When it comes to shar­ing an Airbnb, you could end up with a dod­dery old lady who knows the best place for tea, or a 6ft 5in Ger­man ten­nis player. That’s what hap­pened to Bree when she took a pri­vate room in a Wim­ble­don house two years ago and met player Frank. They’re still to­gether now. PARTY PALS TaskRab­bit has no­ticed a rise in the num­ber of peo­ple hir­ing ‘taskers’ to go to birth­day par­ties for them. They show up, say hello, ex­plain they’re a proxy… and leave. Not bad for a day’s work.
