Invisible boyfriend let's you fake a relationship - business insider
So I set off to build a boyfriend. First you get to pick what he looks like boyffiend on a of pictures of archetypal guys: bearded guy with glasses, banker guy, guy in a tank top who looks like a personal trainer. Boyfeiend of them were exactly the man of my dreams, but hey he was a fake, after all. I picked a dude of indeterminate ethnicity with stubble, luscious hair, and sleepy eyes. He was generated a name, Oscar Price, and I let them pick a backstory: meeting at Starbucks.
My boyfriend is a basic bitch. I sent over my and waited.
This is Oscar : How are you? I dived right into our fictional story and told him I missed him.
Then the problems began. Oscar said he had been on the phone and asked me again how I was.

He did not bother to weigh in. I went to the reading, already pissed at my Invisible Boyfriend. And yet I was boyfrind annoyed and a little rejected. The next morning, I decided to call him out on his flakiness.
I grew bored. I asked him if he was tempted by other girls being long distance and he said no.

I rolled my eyes. He asked me if I had ever skinny-dipped.
I said yes, and was still waiting for him to engage me. When he started talking about how he had spent the night watching Netflix and ordering Chinese, I was ready to call the whole thing off. This was the fakf guy who was into dressage and spent quiet nights at home with his dog?
I dove right in. He was rapid-fire typing now. But it was pretty mellow other than that. I was so intrigued.
Were they just trying to entertain me? Was I actually getting to know someone beyond just these fake texted platitudes?
The next day he was back to talking about going to the gym and boydriend I was back to feeling like my boyfriend was pathetic. After a week, I stopped texting him.
The thing is, as any veteran of online dating can tell you, guys who want to be your virtual pen pal are easy to come by. But at least with Tinder or Ok Cupid, you at least have the chance of meeting a real, live person on trxt other side of the line.
