For $750, a service will give someone the appearance of having a girlfriend complete with lovey Facebook updates, texts and voicemails.
The website, Fake Internet Girlfriend, seems to be taking a page from "Catfish" and offering lonely guys a way to seem normal, reliable or desirable. From the site:
Sometimes people need to rent a fake girlfriend for their job. Some employers are biased towards single folks. Often times employers give preference to people in more serious relationships so it can benefit a person to have a fake online girlfriend they can say they are in a long distance relationship with. . . . Sometimes people hire a fake internet girlfriend to make an ex-girlfriend jealous. In fact, we get a lot of clients for this reason.
