A real life person isn't enough to make your ex-girlfriend jealous anymore since the virtual Facebook girlfriend has been up for sale.
In a recent bid on eBay, a virtual Facebook girlfriend was sold for over $11,500. According to New Launch, the perfect girl will "like your statuses, post on your wall and even let you keep a ‘in a relationship status’ with her for two months." This is a pretty swell deal for 9000 euros.
Whether it's sensible or worthwhile to spend that much money on someone who doesn't truly exist, the importance of public Facebook views is clearly reflected in this strange and creepy bid. Who needs to court a new person they genuinely care about and have feelings for when you can buy love for two months and renew it over and over again?
