The Invisible Boyfriend app is exactly like it sounds. If a single girl desires to have some male communication for Valentine’s Day 2015, then a small bit of cash can make it appear to your friends as if you have an invisible boyfriend. But how well does it really work? Let’s just say that Raj of The Big Bang Theory may be willing to cheat on Siri, since Invisible Boyfriend can also produce an Invisible Girlfriend.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, if you are feeling lonely on Valentine’s Day 2015, check out this list of five funny ways singles can annoy the heck out of couples. Of course, if you are just hungry, then both Krispy Kreme donuts and Oreo have special plans for this year.
If you check out the FAQ section at invisibleboyfriend.com, you will quickly see that Invisible Boyfriend tries to be something for everyone.
“Are you LGBT? Deployed overseas? Focusing on a promotion? An Invisible Boyfriend can help you manage real-world distractions. Put simply, this platform helps you create credible, reasonable stories that you can bring home to curious mom, your buddies, and coworkers. These stories are backed by virtual and real-world social proof.”
Invisible Boyfriend costs $25 per month and includes 100 texts, 10 voicemails, and one handwritten note. The initial setup even allows you to name your Invisible Boyfriend and assign a photo. The real trick is that you are not conversing with an artificial intelligence program; there supposedly is a real human being on the other end.
The inventor of Invisible Boyfriend, Matthew Homann, describes himself as a “recovering lawyer” with “idea surplus disorder.” He says he came up with the idea several years ago after suffering from a divorce, and was becoming tired of being asked about resuming the dating life.
“Around Thanksgiving, my mom called me and asked if she should set an extra place for someone I’m bringing,” Homann says on the site’s website. “In that moment I realized how great it would be to have an answer for her that didn’t require me to actually be dating someone.”
So would Raj dump Siri for the potential Invisible Girlfriend that could be created with this service? Writers at the Daily Mail tried it out and reported they enjoyed the experience.
“Although I had no idea who I was texting, it was clear that there was a real, albeit mysterious, person having casual conversation with me. When I told him I was working, he immediately took interest in the story I was writing, which was actually sweet… I actually had a great time talking to my imaginary boyfriend, and it was nice to know that I could easily win Liam back with a quick payment of $24.99.”
Sounds like The Big Bang Theory needs to do an Invisible Boyfriend or Invisible Girlfriend episode, don’t you agree?
