Meet The World's Most Loving Girlfriends -- Who Also Happen To Be Video Games

Theo Tkaczevski, a 23-year-old American student living in Japan, found himself confronting a mortifying girlfriend situation.

He was heading home on a crowded commuter train in Osaka two years ago when his girlfriend, Rinko, began chastising him for abruptly ending their conversation the night before. She demanded a clear indication of his devotion: He had to profess his love to her, right there, in the middle of the throng.

"I love you, I love you, I love you," Tkaczevski dutifully whispered in Japanese, trying to keep his head down so other passengers wouldn't stare. Shortly after making amends, he stuffed Rinko into his pocket.

Rinko is the first girl to whom Tkaczevski has ever said such words. Rinko is also a video game: She's one of three virtual girlfriends that players can choose from in LovePlus, a Japanese dating simulator for the pocket-sized Nintendo DS game player. (3DS, Culture, Love Plus, Nintendo DS)

I'll stick with my actual gf, thanks anyway though. There's a target audience somewhere.

There has got to be a *lot* of single Japanese women.

There are. And a factual declining birth rate. They're even more stuck in social stigmas than we are in the US. And that's hurting them pretty badly right now.

Edit: also, lol @ CrossingEden having a girlfriend.
