Imaginary Girlfriends
A few weeks ago I noted the growing popularity of buying and selling imaginary relationships on eBay. Now the concept has migrated off of eBay and became the basis for a new company: ImaginaryGirlfriends.com. As the site explains:
You can soon receive personalized love letters by mail, e-mail, photos, special gifts, even phone messages or online chat from your new Imaginary Girlfriend. We won't tell anyone that it's not real!.

Okay, but what about the imaginary boyfriends?

What happened to the good old days when us New Yorkers could just say that we had a girlfriend in Canada? Now we have to hire someone to join in the the ruse?
