  1. This is so sad. For People to find comfort in virtual fake stuff in order to feel wanted ugh so sad. And to say that if his girlfriend won't accept that thing he'll pretty much say byyeee to his Real gf lol omg that's insane. Guess the hand is starting to become more better then being with someone psychically in person.
