This was both and
That is a lot of effort to keep up with Joneses you don't even care about.
I remember reading a story on the Internet about a Chinese woman who married herself. She couldn't find a husband and wanted a big wedding so that's what she did. She was a yuppie-type.
There is also apparently at least one enterprising soul in Japan who will take your stuffed animal on vacation and shoot photos for you. Of the stuffed animal. In all the exotic locations.
His message about being proud to be single seems to be contradicted by the whole pretending to have a girlfriend for photos to share with people. I mean I know he's not tricking people as they know he's taking these types of photos by himself, but surely there are better ways to show you're proud to be single than to take photos portraying yourself in a relationship.

Nyrak, that is super awesome
Yes, it is awesome, I've seen it on the news a couple times now, I think most recently Gnome visited various Olympic sites in Vancouver & Whistler, but he's been all over the world too. She claims not to know who's taking it, and doesn't want to....I agree, more fun that way. The first time I guess you're pissed because someone stole your gnome, but he comes home & it turns into a fun adventure, so why not?
I saw this documentary once where two guys had life sized dolls for wives. They actually talk to them, take them places like the park, eat meals with them. Yeah, that documentary pretty much scarred me for life.
Most of the guys were totally skeezy and were completely unable to look at women as people, which is why they wanted a doll they could control (and have sex with whenever they wanted). One younger man was actually very sympathetic and too shy to talk to real life women, so he got a doll instead. But yeah, very very strange....
