Wish You Had a Girlfriend? New Service Offers You (a Fake) One

"Craving some female attention? offers a bit of the textual kind.
If for some reason you've found yourself in need of a fake girlfriend — NewsFeed doesn't want to imagine what that reason might be, but concedes there could be one — a new service will pose as a faithful paramour, who sends you loving text messages and phone calls when you need them most. According to the website, you simply save the company's number in your phone under whatever name you've given your imaginary lady friend and then send a text when you're out with your friends, co-workers or whoever you've been lying to. The service will then send you a "girlfriend-esque message," closely followed by a phone call.

So exactly what are these "girlfriend-esque" messages and calls saying? According to MSNBC's Digital Life, the messages and calls range in content but most are along the lines of, "Why don't you leave the boys and come hang out with me?" and "Please come hang out with me? Please? I really miss you."

Which, to be honest, is totally baffling to NewsFeed and likely anyone who's ever read a women's magazine. We thought men were supposed to hate behavior like this? Now it seems some of them are requesting it."

This is a very curious service, but who knows? Deserves a look.
If a girlfriend can't do it, fake girlfriends will.

well, of course it is not intended to replace a girlfriend, and it might work to squeeze you out of boring meetings or other places, but if you have real close friends they wont buy it(no pun intended), i really can think why i would get such service.. XD
