This latest dating app is a godsend for all you ‘Forever-Alones’ out there, as one can receive lovey-dovey text messages and phone calls from the significant other–albeit a fake one.
The service, called Invisible Boyfriend or Invisible Girlfriend â€” depending on what youâ€™re looking for â€” lets you build an entire fantasy by selecting age, hobbies and a name and describing how you met.
Singles select their make-believe significant other from a base of selfies solicited by the company and available on their website.
Co-Founder Matthew Homann says that he came up with the idea after his divorce in response to pressure from his family to find a new wife.
Anyone can submit a selfie and become someoneâ€™s make-believe significant other, although a T-shirt is the only form of compensation youâ€™ll get for sacrificing your face to quasi-satisfy a lonely stranger.
Co-founder Kyle Tabor told Relaxnews that for US$25 (RM90) per month, you get 100 text messages, 10 voice mails and one handwritten note from your fantasy man or woman.
Whatâ€™s more, your invisible boyfriend or girlfriend wonâ€™t get jealous and try to stop you from finding a real squeeze who will message you for free.
Tabor tells Relaxnews that the service launched in the US and Canada on Jan 19 after a successful beta testing period.MYNEWSHUB
