Who needs a social life?
It's all fun and games till she breaks your heart and you take it out on your phone. Interesting concept, but don't you think we are socially problematic without virtual girl friends?

Yeah, probably. But at the same time, this may hold more beneficial conversations than "hi, how was your day?" I'm a techie dating a girly-girl, and let me tell ya, telling her I'm starting a blog yields "a what?!" Or that iTunes will convert WAV files to MP3 or MP4, and I get a blank stare. Just might be worth it if she can finally tell me the answer to the great debate...Which is better, Windows or OS X? lol
