Now You Can Be Nagged by Fake Girlfriend, Too

One of the joys of being single is that isn't woman around to nag you. (Send your complaint letters to my editor, not me.) But now there is a new service that provides men with a fake girlfriend who, for some reason, nags you, too.

MSNBC's "Digital Life" reports on a new website called that services men (not that way!) who don't have a girlfriend but need one.

It's not an escort service or anything like that; in fact, the man never even meets a woman. The service sends perfectly-timed "girlfriend-esque" text messages and voice mails to the man's phone just so he can show them to his friends or potential mates and say, "See, I have a girlfriend!"

Messages include:

-- "I just need someone to talk to... Call me?"
-- "Why don't you leave the boys and come hang out with me?"
-- "Please come hang out with me? Please? I really miss you."

Hmm. These are the types of comments that cause a man to break up with a girlfriend. And they want a person to pay for the privilege of getting these annoying, nagging messages from a fake girlfriend?

The website is very short on details, and does not say how much, if anything, this service costs.
