Website Sells Fake FB Girlfriends

By Ben Waldron|

Facebook has radically altered (some would say ruined) the dating scene. Relationships and breakups are now public information, first dates have lost their mystery because of preemptive Facebook stalking, and once-stable relationships are threatened by flirtatious wall posts.

Now, in this altered dating landscape, a Brazilian website has apparently identified a niche for potential profit. Their product? Fake Facebook girlfriends.

For $39.00 NamoroFake.com.brwill create a Facebook girlfriend profile for you that includes comments and the all-important "relationship status" change for thirty days. Or, for those on a budget, $19.00 will buy you a fake ex-girlfriend.

"Impress your friends," says the website. "Gain confidence with women." Indeed those trading in virtual deception may find an ally in NamoroFake.

So is hiring a fake Facebook girlfriend right for you? The website suggests a number of possible reasons to hire a fake flame. Pure desperation didn't make the list.

"Sometimes having a fake girlfriend on the Internet helps make you more popular with the women and increases your self esteem," says the website.

"Sometimes people need to rent a fake girlfriend to make jealous a jealous ex-girlfriend. In truth, we have a lot of clients for that reason," it says. "After a breakup, the ex-boyfriends want to show that they are already with another person to feel good. One immediate way to do this is to hire a fake girlfriend to maintain appearances."

The justifications need not be entirely restricted to jealousy or "keeping up appearances," suggests the site. Maybe your family is pressuring you to settle down with someone and you need a quick fix to get them off your back. If so, NamoroFake might just be the solution.

To bolster the ranks of fake girlfriends, the website is inviting women to send in their profiles, with a 50 percent profit-sharing incentive. There are currently no fake Facebook boyfriends for hire, though the site says it has plans to offer them in the future.

Actually no. The idiots who use facebook and feel they must post everything about their lives have ruined the dating scene.

That's really sad. It's amazing though, how people really define themselves based on their dating history and how many fb friends they have

The developers of this idea are actually pretty smart.
They see a niche, know theres literally 1000s of people out there creating fake profiles anyways, making rookie mistakes and getting caught.... so they are saving these people the work for $40 & probably over years, have learned the things that work & dont work.

Its a society where people seem to grade you on "status" now. How many twitter followers do you have, facebook friends, relationship status matter more than personality to a growing percentage of our society for some reason.

I wouldnt even be shocked if theres more than just the 1 company doing this.

Is it a crazy thing to do? Sure. But I see this as not much different than any of those Role playing games that exist that people spend $$ on. You are pretending to be something you arent on there too.

Lets be honest... Manti shoulda hired them.

Lol Facebook... Nuff said.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Can a person not just make an additional account themselves for free and use that as their "fake girlfriend"?

Why would you even want a real Facebook girlfriend?
