Pesky colleagues always asking about your love life? Nosy parents want to know how they'll become grandparents if you're not on the dating scene?

Or are your loved-up friends determined to set you up because you can't possibly be happy and single?

A new dating app in the US is providing a solution for this relationship pressure with a "cover-up" service called The Invisible Boyfriend, which lets you text an imaginary partner.
