UNITED KINGDOM -- We get it. Nobody really wants to be single around the holidays. But, how desperate is too desperate when cuffing your next boo?
For example, a 28-year-old bachelor allegedly pays about $1,000 dollars a year just to receive "fake girlfriend" texts. "Ben" told The Independent he met a random girl on Snapchat before agreeing to pay her for attention. But, don't get it twisted. Ben says he's not in it for the sexting. The woman actually sends him those anticipated "good morning" texts. You know, the ones you would get in a real relationship?!
This sounds like some scene from the movie Her, but in reality, Ben's not alone.
Plenty of guys reportedly log on to InvisibleGirlfriend.com to find their digital honeys.
Not a bad plan 'B' for those looking for a more seasonal fling. It worked for Manti Teo -- at least for a while.
