An Internet venture is offering a Facebook girlfriend for just five dollars.
The site, Cloud Girlfriend, is promising users the ability to create their 'perfect girlfriend', who will post messages on their wall, giving the impression that they are in a long distance relationship.
Labeling itself as 'The Social Network Girlfriend', the site has described four steps to creating a virtual partner, with users asked to 'define their perfect girlfriend before the site's owners bring her into existence'.
According to the Daily Mail, it then promises the budding online Romeos they will be able to 'connect and interact' with their new girlfriend 'publicly on your favourite social network'.
Advertised as a 'public long-distance relationship', the creators of the site said that they will employ real human beings to act as fake girlfriends.
Co-founder David Fuhriman claimed that Cloud Girlfriend helps users to bag themselves a real girlfriend, it added.
He explained to website Business Insider that women who see posts from a virtual girlfriend will think 'someone else thinks highly enough of this person to date him, so maybe I should too', the report said.
According to the report, some have voiced concerns over the site as it contravenes Facebook's terms and conditions with regard to fake profiles.
The site's terms currently state that users must 'not provide any false personal information on Facebook, or create an account for anyone other than themselves without permission', it added.
