A San Francisco man posted an ad on Craigslist in search for a "holiday girlfriend." The 28-year-old "small business owner" stated: "I want a girlfriend. But, I don't really want a girlfriend. I just want one for the holidays." I don't know what kind of game plan that is; the holidays are the worst time to date someone new. Who wants to bring a stranger home to meet your family or spend a bunch of money on some guy you just met? It's the opposite of a good idea. Apparently his reasoning is that people "hate" being alone on the holidays and this way you'd both have someone to bring to those "coupley holiday parties." But your friends would know you weren't previously dating anybody so really you'd just be showing up to those parties with a guy everyone knows you met on Craigslist. Mr. Romance claims that if the first meeting goes well, you'd be his girl until "11:59 p.m., Jan. 2, 2012." He's either already trying to extend this relationship past the holidays or not that bright, because 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 2 is not a holiday. I'll let you guys do the math on that and confirm for yourselves. Either way, this whole thing sounds like the plot of a bad Kate Hudson movie. This could either end with some incredible romance or a horrible homicide. I have my money on the latter: It's called The Craigslist Killer, and I saw it on Lifetime.
