    Why didn’t I think of this? I could be on an island sipping pina coladas.

    The fatal flaw with this is that during guy hang out time…you get harrassed and belittled for leaving the room to go talk to your girl friend.

      Maybe not if you’re 13.

    When I was in middle school I bought a Boyfriend in a Box. In said box there were a couple loving messages, a picture of boyfriend, a couple of movie ticket stubs, and a few other odds and ends which would suggest young dating. It was hilarious and I gave it to friend as a white elephant gift and she in turn passed it on – that is comical and cute.

    This service is just plain creepy and smells of desperation.

    Am tempted to try it. Desperately curious what a “girlfriend-esque message” is…

      WTF? How is that “girlfriend-esque?” I am disappointed.

        “Oh hai!” sounds more “icanhazcheezburger” than “girlfriend.”Just sayin’.

        She did! Unfortunately, I was at work and couldn’t answer. She did not leave a voicemail.

      “Hello, sexy _INSERT NAME HERE_! I just texted to say how happy I am that you are my boyfriend and how much I can’t wait to have all the sex with you. I would be there with you now trying to have sex with you because I am very real, but I am too busy being stopped on the street by people wanting to know if I am Megan Fox. I guess all the hot sex will have to wait until you finish hanging out with your buddies. I guess in the meantime I will tell all the other hot ladies I know how big you are and that you are my boyfriend because they all want to have sex with you too, _INSERT NAME HERE_!

    Because real friends would never notice that they’ve never seen, met, or come across any evidence of this “girlfriend” while hanging out or around this friend.

    Predatory product and delusionary customer base sigh….

      Besides, this HAS to be a joke site, right? A tool you use to play a prank on someone? Nobody in their right mind would ever use this…

      Wait, I guess the key lies in the phrase “in their right mind.”

      Anyway, if you went to all this effort to fool someone into thinking you had a girlfriend (or boyfriend for that matter), wouldn’t it be easier and healthier to just, you know, date?

    This sort of reminds me of the reject hotline. It was a number that you could give out instead of your real number and then when dialed it had a recorded message about how you were rejected and possible reasons why…does anyone else remember that? Not even sure if it’s around anymore.

      I had forgotten about it – I always thought it was a brilliant plan but I think it came with a 1-800 number which would not really cause anyone to fall for it

        I used to tell people that because of where I lived, I paid a few bucks a month to have an 800 number in order for calls not to be long distance for the people calling me (I lived in an area where the people I went to school with/worked with all had “long distance” numbers because my number was actually for a different city/county over due to how it was geographically set up in the middle of nowhere).

        My friends used to use several of those, and they all had local area codes, not 800 numbers.

        The one we used to call had a 773 area code (Chicago area), so it was believable when I was in college at Illinois!

    Damn. Closeted gay guys of the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s could have sure used this to get annoying people to butt the hell out of their lives… Heck, lets face it, even right now in more parts of the country than any of us care to admit, this could really be a big life saver. A sad comment on our society to be sure. But it is what it is.

      I think this service would just give closeted gay guys of the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s more unwanted attention because everyone would want to know how they managed to smash a tiny typewriter in their pocket robot contraption :).

    Poor, poor guys who use this service. I hope they don’t end up with one of those annoying jingles like the CougarLife.com commercials.

    I’ve heard of some guys using FB to create relationships to fake girlfriends, especially if they want to make a FB-stalking ex jealous, but this service just takes it to a whole new level of sad. Imagine if the guy already HAS a real girlfriend, yet his friends couldn’t stand him. Could they get rid of the girlfriend they don’t like by using this service?

    Wow…I just though of another evil use for this website.

      I think the guy would have a serious issue if he had a girlfriend and his friends couldn’t stand HIM (the girlfriend) 😀 Makes a dude question more than just a few things, y’know what I mean?

      But in order to ensure that a clingly girlfriend gets mad enough to dump a guy, you’d need an interactive phone service – almost a reverse phone sex service. You text, they call, and then the girlfriend yanks the phone away, gets told a few juicy details, and BAM! a punch to the groin and a serious dumping (as well as the obligatory bitching on facebook about cheating and humiliation). I’m sure they’d charge for that service. Certainly not a free service.

    Some guys should just use this number instead of having real girlfriends.

    What happens if you’re out with your dude friends, and your “girlfriend” calls, and one of them takes the phone from you to try to talk to her? Yeah, this is flawless. *rolls eyes* If it’s meant as a joke, funny. If it’s legit, how pathetic! Why is it such a bad thing to be single?
