Virtual-Girlfriend 6789

Almost as good as the real thing?

Guys, are you single and ashamed about it? Forget going on pesky dates and the hassle of trying to find a girlfriend … fake it on Facebook with the help of this new startup:

Relationship status: virtual…

That’s what startup Cloud Girlfriend promises, although your friends on Facebook will never know it. The new Internet company helps guys who aren’t ready to admit, at least online, that they don’t have a significant other.

The new service allows users to create the perfect girlfriend who will write on your Facebook wall and otherwise make her ghostly presence known through social media.

Cloud Girlfriend has yet to officially launch, but the site is already generating overwhelming interest, advising visitors to “register early to get in line.”
