Cloud Girlfriend promises to help lonely men sink to rock bottom.
The new web startup company guarantees its users a fake, virtual girlfriend who will publicly interact with them on Facebook and other social networking sites. Cloud Girlfriend describes their service as this:
Step 1: Define your perfect girlfriend. Step 2: We bring her into existence. Step 3: Connect and interact with her publicly on your favorite social network Step 4: Enjoy a public long distance relationship with your perfect girl.
According to the website, “Due to high demand we are only able to accommodate a limited number of users to the site. Register early to get in line.” Apparently many people seem interested in a virtual, fake relationship.
Users can design their girlfriends to meet their precise specifications. Once you begin your relationship with your fake beau, somebody employed by the company will interact with you on Facebook via “her” profile. Then all of your single male friends can be jealous of your hot new girlfriend.
This just sounds like a recipe for disaster. What are your friends going to think when they realized you’ve paid a company to create a pretend woman to interact with you on the internet?
I have a strange feeling Mark Zuckerberg will have some issues with this, as Facebook doesn’t like fake profiles. And if there really are people out there who are desperate enough fake a relationship, wouldn’t they have already done it?
