Invisible Girlfriend
The premise of Invisible Girlfriend is that if you need to pretend that you have a girlfriend (for instance, if a guy is trying to hide the fact that he's gay) this company will provide you with convincing proof to back up your story.


Matt Homann, its founder, says, "This is the business of helping [clients] tell a lie — we’re thinking of it more as a shield — to have the excuse ready in hand and not have to be uncomfortable." [BuzzFeed]

Fake girlfriend services are not new. I've posted about quite a few of them here, including FakeGirlfriend.co, Cloud Girlfriend, Girlfriend Hire, and ImaginaryGirlfriends.com.

This market niche seems to have become quite crowded.

I think the trend started because of all of the holiday Hallmark movies.

Interesting that all the photos seem to be of the kind of well-photoshopped girl none of their customers could hope to pull in the first place.
