Of course, not meant for me, but this service simply kicks ass. What a great idea! Al Lieb (co-founder of Evite) and James Hong (co-founder of Hot or Not?) are the founders.

This would have been perfect for me years ago during my "too busy and dumb" boyfriend days. Now since I'm married and trained by Christine, this service has entered my life a little too late. But for you single guys needing brownie points with your girlfriends definitely check out this service. Hilarious.

SaveMyAss is a personal assistant that keeps your girlfriend or wife happy by sending her flowers on your behalf, on a regular but semi-random basis.

Why do I need this?
If you're a successful professional whose career demands the bulk of your time, you know the problem. You want her to be happy, but you're busy and it's hard to be on top of flowers when you have deals closing or decks to finish. Sign up for this service once, and we'll take care of the rest. She'll be happy, you'll be happy.

How does it work?
You provide us with your billing info and her delivery address. We'll periodically send her flowers every 4-6 weeks. We'll notify you before each order, and you can edit them in advance, if you'd like. We'll schedule flowers for all the obligatory dates she expects (Valentine's, Anniversaries, etc.) and we'll score you points by making deliveries she doesn't expect.
Is this for real? Do people actually use this?
Yes, it's for real. Many of our customers work at Goldman, MS, JPM, CSFB, McKinsey, BCG, and other top banking/consulting shops.. as well as doctors, lawyers, and successful entrepreneurs (including a few billionaires). In all cases, our customers are people who care for or love their partners, but work in demanding careers that require the bulk of their time and energy.
