This feeling of fakin’ it

It is said that you will be perceived as much more desirable if you are perceived as taken. I’ve never noticed any such thing, but then it’s been rather a long time — about half a lifetime — since I’ve been taken. And I don’t really see myself as a customer for this particular service:

A new app to change your relationship status. “Invisible girlfriend” will call you, leave you voicemails and even give you gifts. All for a price. Just $9.99 per month for “talking” and $49.99 for “almost engaged” status.

How much to leave me the hell alone?

Manti Te’o, call your service. Or this one.

    Forget “invisible girlfriend.” Can I get a service that will issue me an urgent emergency call (maybe, “invisible sick child”?) that will give me a Get Out Of Pointless Horrible Meeting Free card?

    Sounds like a Barenaked Ladies song.
