When I first saw this South Korean 'virtual girlfriend' app, I thought it was an incredibly sad thing to buy, but on reflection if it helps combat loneliness, then perhaps that's no bad thing. For £1.26 a day, the app will send you four video calls a day (out of a possible 100) from a model posing as your girlfriend, ranging from "Are you still sleeping? Time for breakfast!" to "Good night, sweet dreams". Just one thing, as Geekologie pointed out: remember to delete the app if you get a real girlfriend.


  1. No need for expensive lawyers when you split up.

  2. You should probably test the water first, before just deleting the app if you get lucky with, you know, a real human.

    There's always the chance she'll be up for a semi-virtual threesome. :-\

  3. Conor: True.

    Michael: You are a very bad person.
