I was reminded of this site after reading the script for "The Rental", by Mark Harvey Levine. (Theatre @ First up here in Somerville is holding auditions for an evening of one-act plays, one of which is "The Rental". If you're up here in Davis Square, you should definitely check it out.) "The Rental" mentions a ficticious company called "Rent-a-Boyfriend, Ltd."

  • "Tired of your friends and family telling you to get a girlfriend?

  • Want to make that certain someone a little jealous?

  • Need a confidence boost? Just feeling lonely sometimes?

"With an Imaginary Girlfriend, you can carry on a completely fictitious, yet authentic looking relationship with the girl of your choice."

from http://www.imaginarygirlfriends.com/girlfriend.php

"We are no longer requiring that your actual photograph is associated with your Imaginary Girlfriend profile! If you are too shy to share your photos but are an excellent writer of letters, or otherwise a hopeless romantic, we'd still love to hear from you. We are purchasing photo sets from models that can be used with the Imaginary Girlfriend service."

"How it works is simple- you write your letters, seal them and send them to us in another envelope. Upon receipt, we take your sealed letters, add the proper postage and immediately forward them to your client, never revealing your actual location. No need to worry about postmarks or return addresses compromising your privacy!"

They're looking both for models and for writers.

banana_plants asked me if I were considering being one of their writers, but I don't think the company would be very happy about that. And I'd want to be very sure about their security before signing up as an imaginary girlfriend.

(Thanks to JG for the original pointer.)
