Imaginary Online Girlfriends @ Ebay
Not much of a girl friend, but she's the only one I got.
Congratulations on winning the bid Bystander! Keep us updated on how it goes!
So, how long is the imaginary relationship supposed to last? The winning $41 bid doesn't seem like it would cover anything longer than 60-90 days. Beyond that and the materials cost (paper, perfume, envelopes, postage) would start sinking in.

If you read it, and I was sad enough to do so, you'll see its for a fixed period 30 days, then you get to dump her.
$40 a month doesn't seem like much of an income. Unless she's two timing you :-P
Interesting, but not as interesting as "Woman dumps man for his online alter ego"
For no good reason I find that thing she's wearing around her neck disturbing.
These things are already getting spammed out on Ebay. Search on "imaginary girlfriend" and you'll see that several of them have the same text in the ad and the same GF pictures.

I'm making about $800/month on this scam. The trick is to have a photo that makes you look pretty decent and interesting but not too hot -- no 'glamor' shots or shots culled from magazines, for example.
Are you for real man!? That's --- cough cough... GREAT... I guess.
This reminds me of quote:
I'm a firm believer of "You get what you pay for". So I guess if you're too cheap to have a real girlfriend, and you pay for a fake one online... well... you asked for it!
The most important thing is sincerity. If you can fake that, you've got it made.
$41 buck is starting to look like a steal! Check out the users most recent auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=317&item=2964329263
It just keeps getting better:
Guess what I'm wearing?
"Are you for real man!?"
"The internet: where men are men, women are men, and children are the FBI."
"Virtual Ho" is a better name for it.
