These Tricks and Services Help to Fabricate Fake Relationships

 - Feb 24, 2014
If you’re sick of being asked if you’re still single and feel you might resort to fabricating fake relationships to prove you won’t be alone forever, these tricks will help you weave a more believable story.

It’s easy enough to change your relationship status on Facebook, but this probably means you’ll have to cough up some proof of this mysterious new person who has suddenly come into your life. Japanese photographer Keisuke Jinushi created several guides on how to angle your photos so that it looks like you’ve got a girl by your side. There are also girlfriend/boyfriend rental and subscription services that will send out texts, voicemails and gifts to make a fabricated relationship seem real.

If you’re not quite ready to commit to a fake relationship, but miss the intimacy of being with another person, there are platonic, "professional" cuddling services that might be able to fill a hole in your heart.
