Random Creepy Stuff: 'Cloud Girlfriend' Provides a Virtual Girlfriend for Social Networks

Oh the shame – you have to set your relationship status on Facebook to ‘Single’. What will your friends think? How can you possibly cope?!?

Fear no more – a new company called Cloud Girlfriend promises to help you out with a simple four-step process:

Step 1: Define your perfect girlfriend. Step 2: We bring her into existence. Step 3: Connect and interact with her publicly on your favorite social network. Step 4: Enjoy a public long distance relationship with your perfect girl.

However, as the AOLNews article notes:

Facebook’s Terms of Service agreement strictly prohibits computer controlled accounts, which would seemingly rule out cyber-based special lady friends.

“Some startups don’t make it past the phase where they build a mailing list of users for their service, and if Cloud Girlfriend isn’t one of them, I will gladly eat my hat,” Technology Review’s Christopher Mims wrote.

The core idea is similar to something my father once told me about job hunting: The best way to get a girlfriend is to already have one.

Maybe it is because the majority of my life has been in an era before social media, and that I have been happily married since before Al Gore invented the internet … but I think this is a stupid – albeit absolutely hilarious – idea.

What do you think?

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember – and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life – I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a ‘Laptop First’ person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs … and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies … but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
