A new app for your smartphone is called Invisible Boyfriend. It allows anyone to pretend they have a loving relationship with a boyfriend who sends text messages and leaves voicemails. According to the designer, Matthew Homann, “single women who use the app just want to use the text messages and voicemails to convince their friends and family that they are in a relationship.”
Pretend relationships are just the next step in a culture which has forgotten how to tell the truth. Our heart must go out to those who must have pretend relationships. A relationship with a real person is much more fulfilling. --Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
