You could pay someone $5 to be your Facebook girlfriendon April 24, 2012 @ 12:31 pm (Updated: 8:59 am - 4/26/12 )
Would you try and make the object of your affection jealous with a fake Facebook girlfriend, or is the plan flawed?
You can find services for just about anything on the internet, including finding someone who would pose as your Facebook girlfriend. It turns out it only costs $5.
According to Gizmodo - you can hire out girls (or people posing as girls) to not only be your Facebook-GF and incite jealousy in real life girls, but also to do other things.
Whoa: Before your mind starts racing, 'the other things' include fashion advice, homework help, a list of great dub step songs and video calling you so you can watch her paint her toes. Yes, that last one is a little weird.
While all of this might sound like a sweet deal, Ron, Don, and Libby were unsure of how the Facebook girlfriend would actually be perceived, especially after reading a conversation between a hired GF and her faux beau.
Messages that started out with a simple "hey babe" seemed heavy handed according to the trio. From there, the public wall messages got more intense.
"Hey hun, I won't be around until tomorrow, just letting you know, I have to have my pet put down amongst other not so fun stuff :( but I will give you a shout after I promise :) xxx"
"If you were in a relationship, who would actually be saying, 'put my beloved pet down' in a Facebook wall post?" Libby asked.
Don said that when it comes down to faking a lady in his life, he won't hire someone for $5 to pose as his Internet girlfriend. After all, his sisters have different last names. But Ron thinks Don's plan might lead to some problems.
