The Invisible Girlfriend
The world is so odd; you can't make this stuff up.
There's a new service being offered to men who are tired of being nagged by family -- it's called "the invisible girlfriend." The service provides tangible evidence that you're dating a girl even though she doesn't exist. You can use the evidence to shut up your mother and other relatives who nag you about not having a girlfriend.
There are three levels of service. For $9.99/month, you get interactive texts, automated phone calls and an "emergency interaction button." For $29.99/month, you get a Facebook relationship with her, real voicemails and random notes and gifts. For $49.99/month, you get live phone calls and the opportunity to create her background story.
Of course, with none of these plans do you get an actual girlfriend. Just proof to pretend you have one.
Are there men so beleaguered by their relatives that they need this? And would be willing to pay for it? That's sad. What do you think?
