Yes, if people pass off AI-generated jargon as their own, it falls into the realm of deceit, but that’s why it’s vital to create a disclosure standard. And I’m guessing that as daters get more creative with their hints and content gets more visual, it will become clearer what was being relayed from the slave AI. And I’d like to clarify that using AI to improve your profile is the same as people having all their friends approve of them, except one option leaves you with more privacy and less effort.
My vision for dating doesn’t just promote interaction; I also believe that AI should be used to speed up in-person meetings. Countless people turn to dating apps when they are bored, inadvertently blocking those who want to meet that evening. Although many applications use software to improve the matching process, they need to take it to the next level to give the user control over all the nuances.
Imagine if you could have an in-app AI assistant guide you through the non-negotiable types of relationships you’re open to and which interests to prioritize, even if you ask for a date if there’s a match. Better than someone who “likes” you back would get a note that said, “You are both open for a private date this weekend.” This will make it much easier to find a Valentine’s Day meeting place to forget your ex.
People who don’t like the idea of AI playing the role of a matchmaker should ask themselves: what matters most, meeting someone you might want to spend the rest of your life with, or who set you up? I’m not saying that you shouldn’t be able to take the reins of power whenever you please. Nobody prevents you from meeting with partners outside this sphere.
A common fear of introducing AI to dating apps is that it will further dehumanize them to the point of no return. But I think we should give ourselves – and our humanity – a little more trust that a machine can’t fall in love better than we can. After all, isn’t this a dance that requires two hearts to beat?
The future of dating is on the doorstep, and many people are already ready to open the door if the possibility of love is on the other side. According to an OkCupid poll, 36% of the 30,000 users surveyed said they wouldn’t continue chatting with someone who admitted to chatting with them for the first time using an AI-based bot, but interestingly, 46% of them weren’t sure. and 18 percent said yes.
The human instinct is to rebel against what you fear or cannot predict, and nothing frightens or confuses people more than the looming impact of AI on their lives. But again, it’s like initial skepticism and gradual acceptance of much of what ultimately makes up society. The internet was once considered a trend. Our parents considered oral sex taboo.
Even if AI manages to make dating fun again by providing a smoother experience (pun intended), it won’t destroy the nuances of dating in real life. As the tale goes, you must be willing to kiss frogs to find your prince or princess. But at least you won’t be dragged through the swamp.
