So let’s say you’ve found yourself on the edge of desperation and the thought of being alone for one more second is something that would hurl you into unimaginable depths of depression… would you consider getting yourself a fake Facebook girlfriend to stave off the unwanted feelings? Well, if your answer is yes – which is highly unlikely if you’re still of sane mind – then you might want to check out Cloud Girlfriend, a new Facebook service that gives people fake Facebook girlfriends to people who need it, either for self-delusion or for building his rep among his f-list.
Money cannot buy love, but it can buy a fake girlfriend
The primary purpose of getting a fake Facebook girlfriend would be to impress your friends and fool them into thinking more highly of you just because you managed to nab a hot chick. The secondary purpose is to make you feel like you actually do have someone who loves you. I know, I know, the whole ordeal sounds pathetic – but that’s the internet for you, it’s just plain insane. David Fuhriman, co-founder of Cloud Girlfriend, is even dressing up their whole operation and making it smell good by claiming that it has a ‘therapeutic value’, that it fulfills psychological needs like “intimacy and friendship”, and that it can help build ‘self-confidence’ and that it helps users ‘navigate real-life situations. Of course, anyone could argue that it does the exact opposite of that in the long run.
Fuhriman also says that the service will help guys get a girlfriend. If girls who visit your profile see that there’s a hot chick who thinks highly enough of you to date you, then they’re more than likely to think you’re worth it as well. Hypothetically, though, let’s say that this app does get you a real-life girlfriend. Imagine the outrage – not to mention the disgust – which she would feel when she finds out that you used such a service before. Doesn’t the whole affair seem terribly counterproductive? Fuhriman certainly doesn’t think so, and you can bet your bottom dollar that there are some people out there who don’t think so either.
How does Cloud Girlfriend Work?
On Cloud Girlfriend, the first thing they ask you is your idea of a perfect girlfriend. Just provide them with that along with some dough, and they’ll set up the account for you. They already have dozens of fake accounts on Facebook set up for your usage. You can then interact with your fake girlfriend publicly on Facebook and enjoy a “public long distance relationship with your perfect girl”. These accounts will be handled by real people to give a sense of realism to the interaction.
Of course, the more astute of you users will have already noticed that this whole service is against Facebook’s terms of service. Fake accounts are simply not allowed, Fake girlfriends included. However, Fuhriman says that there are more profiles of dogs and cats on Facebook than there ever will be of fake girlfriends. This guy fully thinks that he will get away with it, and with the way Facebook’s moving, he probably will.
