Your life is an open book, thanks to Facebook, which can put a strain on loners who are still single. All your pals have girlfriends, what can you do? A Brazilian website has the answer for you - a fake girlfriend.
For a fee you can hire a fake girlfriend to impress your friends on Facebook. This "virtual" lover would then generate relationship statuses, Facebook comments and photos for varied lengths of time, depending on your budget, in order to fool your friends and apparently "gain confidence with women."
Not only could you have a fake girlfriend, if you don't want to spend too much you could have a fax ex-girlfriend, who will post five comments on your wall for a mere $19.99.
According to the Namoro Fake site, “Sometimes people need to rent a fake girlfriend to make your ex-girlfriend jealous.”
“After a breakup, the ex-boyfriends want to show that they are already with another person to feel good.”

If you have money to spare, there are more expensive plans that will, apparently, increase your "popularity with women", especially the most expensive one. With that plan, for $99 you can have a virtual girlfriend for 30 days, including 30 comments on your timeline, pictures and relationship status updates. What a bargain!
If that is a little high, you can just choose a 7 day girlfriend, with 10 comments, a relationship status update and photos for $39.99.
And if you are really, really short on money, you can choose the three-day "significant other" plan, for just $10 with three profile comments from a girl. Whee.
The website is in Portuguese (translated for the screen capture) and it does mention that "By the large amount of concurrent contracts our profiles are all busy at the moment," so they must be doing something right.
One problem. The writer objects to the fact that this website only appears to apply to male clients looking fake girlfriends. What about the fake boyfriends for ladies?
