Cloud Girlfriends Take Douche Bagery Up a Notch

In case you haven't heard there is a new dating site for men that takes douche bagery to the next level. It's called Cloud Girlfriend and it encourages guys to flaunt fake relationships online. The idea started as a service for men that would create fake Facebook girlfriends to make other women in their social network jealous by writing on their walls, linking to them and crafting witty status updates about their "life" together. The founder, David Fuhriman, said he was desperate inspired to create the service after the realization that all a guy needs to get a girlfriends is to already have one. And here I thought all a guy needed to get a girl was a bank account and the ability to act out Jon Mayer songs under the blankets.

In any event, while it was in beta last month, 85,000 guys registered for a Fakebook Facebook girlfriend and had their digital dreams shattered when Facebook lawyers came after them because fake profiles are not allowed on the site. Now Cloud Girlfriends are living on their own URL and the site resembles something more like second life than social networking.

Although it made the users sound like ass hats I kind of liked the Can't By Me Love 2.0 version better where guys could BYOGF for the sake of looking popular. The new iteration just sounds like something Japanese men might do with a pillow. Dear guys, it's time to get your head out of the clouds and your a$$! No one would believe you are actually dating Cindy Mancini.


  1. John Mayer song under the sheets and Cindy Manci references were gold.

  2. Thanks lady! Cindy Mancini is my role model and I am praying to ride off into the sunset on a lawnmower one day. xo
