(PCM) There is a new app and subscription service available that will allow users to create their very own invisible boyfriend or girlfriend complete with phone calls, texts and hand-written letter for only $25 per month.
The Invisible Girlfriend app and subscription service were previewed last year, however now both the Invisible Boyfriend and Invisible Girlfriend apps and subscription services have gone into full beta testing mode.
The company claims that both the Invisible Boyfriend and Invisible Girlfriend services can be used as a way to trick family and friends into thinking that you have a significant other, can help with the feelings of loneliness that often accompany being single or even just a way to practice texting and communicating with a real live individual if you have been out of the dating game for a significant amount of time.
The site also claims that the app and subscription service can be of use to people who are already dating as a way to spark a little jealousy and perhaps lead to an eventual commitment (or break-up).
Users have the ability to choose a name, age, photo and personality for the invisible partner and the service is also LGBT friendly as well, so there is truly something for everyone. The app will also assist users with creating a back story about how the two of you came to meet.
This whole thing almost reminds us of something right out of the Academy Award nominate film “HER” where Joaquin Phoenix’s character falls in love with his phone operating system voiced by Scarlett Johansson. The major difference is that Invisible Boyfriend/Girlfriend actually involve texting and communicating with a real person rather than a robot, but it is a somewhat creepy premise nonetheless.
The subscription service for $25 per month comes with 100 text messages, 10 voicemails and 1 hand-written postcard. While the app is currently in beta testing, users who sign-up can receive 10 text message for free.
