    Hey all i am totally new to this site and i joined as i am totally clueless about marketing and website design, my idea for PhantomGirlfreind.co.uk is get a network of real human beings, not automated bots, that users will interact with over Facebook.
    I believe this service can help guys get a girlfriend. If visitors to your Facebook profile to see wall posts from your imaginary sweetheart, they might think, "Someone else thinks highly enough of this person to date him, so maybe I should too."
    Phantom Girlfriend is not a porn site or adult chat service.However users can chat to their Phantom Girlfreinds.

    I believe the site has a therapeutic value and can fulfill psychological needs like intimacy and friendship even though the interaction is virtual.these interactions can even build self confidence and help users navigate real-life situations.

    What do you guys think of the idea, is it plausible, i have already registered the domain name and am currently building the website, ideas and help are welcome as i need some experienced business partners to help me in this project

    How come you are spelling it "Freinds" rather than "Friends"?

    There is some logic to this idea. It ties into the concept of 'Social Proof'. The obvious questions are:

    (1) Are you intending to use 'real' girls for this business? (Or would you effectively be hiring 'anyone' to play the role, and use fake photos to create an identity? This would probably be cheaper, as you could theoretically outsource the 'work' to virtual assistants overseas.)

    (2) Presumably you're going to have the same girl handling several clients. What happens if mutual Facebook friends see that "Guy A" and "Guy B" are both supposedly in relationships with "girl X"? Surely this is a big problem. Once the cover is blown, the clients are going to become laughing stocks.

    (UNLESS of course you create separate girls' accounts / identities / photos for each individual client - which is going to be insanely complex and time consuming, because in order for the fake girls to look convincing, they'll each need 100+ friends. Obviously you can overcome this by going to those "Add me" groups on FB, but it would still require a heck of a lot of work if you end up trying to juggle 1000 fictitious FB accounts.)
