As Valentine's Day approaches, single people are reminded of just how single they are. It seems that everyone has a significant other. Don't just jump into a relationship because you want to be in one or tell mom and dad you have someone - date someone invisible!

Invisible Girlfriend (boyfriends, too) is an app that claims it gives you real-world and social proof that you’re in a relationship - even if you’re not - so you can get back to living life on your own terms.

Dating someone is serious pressure. What if you haven't found "the one"? What if you actually want to be single right now? It's hard for people to understand. Then there's the pity looks on holidays like Valentine's Day from your couple friends who typically follow it up with, "Don't worry, you'll meet someone just like my (insert their current love's name here) someday." Any of this sounding familiar?  Instead of making everyone else happy by finding a real person, date someone invisible. Convince them you have a real boyfriend or girlfriend and even gush over the latest text you've received.

Invisible Girlfriend is $25/month which includes:

  • 100 text messages
  • 10 voicemails
  • 1 hand-written letter.

See? Proof you are dating someone. The creator says more packages will be made available so you can customize your relationship communication.

The idea is genius, really. You can even create a story of how you  met based on where you normally frequent, what things you like to do and people you hang around. It's like Mad Libs. Fill in the blank.

This guy needs proof he's got someone:

Want to be an invisible boyfriend or girlfriend? You can actually
submit a selfie and be on the invisible one. Plus, if you get chosen, you'll get an "I'm an invisible boyfriend/girlfriend" shirt. I TOTALLY want to try it.
