Fauxmance

Fake relationships help singles alleviate feelings of loneliness
Implications - Being single can be tough. Along with social pressure, being without a romantic partner can bring on feelings of loneliness and depression.

While a novelty for now, these types of tools stand to alleviate loneliness while also providing singles with a fun "alternate reality" and game-like experience.
