GirlfriendHire Website Connects Guys With Girls To Do Their Homework, Prank Ex-Girlfriends

Posted: Updated:

Ladies, beware: scorned, lazy, and mischievous teenage boys have a new playground, and it's called GirlfriendHire.com.

On the site's homepage, users can scroll through categories from "fake breakup," to "relationship advice" and "homework help."

Examples:

As BuzzFeed's SHIFT blog notes, the website was founded by Cody Krecicki, a 22-year-old student at Edison State College in Napes, Fla. as a way for girls to make money while pursuing higher education.

Krecicki told SHIFT's Anna North the site provides a way "for girls to be their own bosses and guys to have something fun — a tool to use, if you want to call it that."

While Krecicki told SHIFT he doesn't want his site to be used for adult ads, that may be harder to enforce as it gets more users -- as would cheating in schools.

Perhaps students aren't getting lazier, but are just being overworked. William Crain, a professor of psychology at City College of New york and author of Reclaiming Childhood seems to think so.

"Kids are developing more school-related stomachaches, headaches, sleep problems, and depression than ever before," he writes.

Additionally, Duke University psychology and neuroscience professor Harris Cooper writes that children who are buried under piles of homework "will miss out on active playtime, essential for learning social skills, proper brain development and warding off childhood obesity."

Or... maybe their cat just literally ate their homework and they need a quick solution. Either way, teachers better be on the lookout.
