Girlfriend for Hire

Guys — what if I told you that you could get all of the benefits of being in a relationship without being tied down? No more expensive dinner dates, meeting the ‘rents, or sitting through Sex and the City reruns. For just five dollars, GirlfriendHire can find you exactly what you’re looking for. Whether you want to make your ex jealous or impress your friends when a hot tween posts on your Facebook wall, there is (unfortunately) a girl on this site willing to help.
More depressing than the guys who frequent this site posting requests for girls to “send me a fake message on Facebook telling how much fun you had last night,” are the girls who post on it (MySpace photo included). Offering services that range from homework help and fashion and relationship advice (including “how to make out properly”) to Facebook posts and “flirty” text messages (code for sexting?). Oh, and then there’s just the “broke ass girl” willing to do anything “sane” for 5 bucks.
Is it just me or does anyone else think this recently-launched site has “recipe for disaster” written all over it? I can see it turning into a Craigslist’s casual encounters board for tweens, illegal sex-capades and all. According to BuzzFeed, 22-year old founder Cody Krecicki “doesn’t want GirlfriendHire to be seen as “an adult service” — he wants it to be ‘fun and safe.’” Now I’ve never been a teenage boy, but I feel like I have enough common sense to realize that this site is not being utilized nearly as much for homework help as it is for the exchange of dirty pics and texts. And while this may just be an innocent way to combat boredom, it could easily turn sour. Girls, I suggest that you find a less sketchy and desperate way to earn a few bucks. And boys, find a real girlfriend and learn how to interact with your fellow human beings like a normal person.
