Virtual Boyfriends All the Rage in Japan Thanks to Webkare Website

Hot Anime Men Alert: Virtual Boyfriends All the Rage in Japan

Well, it started with chat rooms, then online dating, then destigmatized online dating, then further legitimized Facebook hookups so can we really be surprised that Japanese girls are all over the latest web love trend: The Virtual Boyfriend?

The just-launched Webkare is a social networking site in Japan — aimed solely at young women — that encourages its members to flirt with and capture the hearts of the virtual boyfriends available. Five days after it was announced, over 10,000 users joined up to try their hand at virtual dating.

I think it's great. You get to practice your smooth moves and then, with a virtual BF, you tell them what to do, they don't complain, and they do exactly what you want. Sounds pretty awesome.

Anime is painfully, painfully dorky. Not in a good way.

Yeah, right! IRL, guys aren't so sweet, or cute. Maybe in Japan...
