For once you can come home for the holidays without receiving disapproving looks from the family because you choose to focus on your career instead of matters of the heart. If you haven’t guessed from the name, Invisible Girlfriend is a site that lets you engage in a virtual relationship with the girl of your choice. Online services provided for potential subscribers include text messaging, real voicemails, random gifts, “emergency interactions”, and best of all, a Facebook relationship status change.
Creator Matt Homann in an interview said:
Our audience might come from a variety of situations: maybe they’re in a same-sex relationship they’re hiding from disapproving relatives, are trying to avoid the unwelcome advances from a coworker, or have chosen to focus on their work instead of romance.
The company, which is still pre-launch, offers three monthly subscription packages to choose from: “Just Talking,” “Getting Serious,” and “Almost Engaged.” For as low as $9.99 a month, you can have a significant other who won’t nag, whine, or break your bank. Invisible Girlfriend started out more as a joke, but after some consideration, a team of developers and business experts decided to bring it to life. After winning first place in the Startup Weekend competition, the company has plans to expand the brand to include an Invisible Boyfriend site.
