Singles are harnessing the power of OpenAI’s tool to curate the perfect dating profiles and responses to snag a potential match, as some feel dating apps have always favored women and ChatGPT is helping them ‘tip the scales.’
Men are going from zero dates to dozens in just the first month of using the chatbot that creates whimsical poems, romantic notes and confident replies for individuals who would otherwise ‘struggle to come up with conversation starters.’
While ‘the results have been astounding,’ some people feel it is dishonest to use ChatGPT to reel women in because they are unaware they are talking to a chatbot.
However, one Tinder user is not thinking twice about getting a little help to attract more women.
‘You have to use everything to your advantage when it comes to the competitive atmosphere that we call Tinder,’ he shared in a recent TikTok video.

The events sound like South Park’s latest episode, ‘Deep Learning’ partially written by ChatGPT, where the boys learn the chatbot can improve their love lives. However, men have been using the technology to woo women since OpenAI launched the tool in November 2022.
But it seems singles are now seeing ChatGPT’s power and hope the technology can fill in the gaps in their dating life.
DailyMail.com asked ChatGPT, ‘Can you help me get Tinder dates’ and the system generated tips to improve chances, including creating a complete and attractive profile, swiping right on profiles of interest, being persistent and overall being respectful in interactions.
And while asking the AI for advice seems harmless, people appear to be toeing the line when having it generate entire conversations with a potential match.
TikTok user and ‘Tinder veteran’ Dimitri shared a video in December about how he asked ChatGPT to create ‘a love poem about climbing a tree that is a metaphor for a six-foot girl,’ which he sent to a woman who said she was six feet tall.
‘OpenAI wrote this magnificent poem that I would otherwise not be able to write with my peanut brain,’ Dimitri said in the video.
Her response to the AI-generated poem: ‘Oh my God. I’ve never had a guy write a poem for me. That’s so cute. Oh my God. I love it.’
‘She ate that up,’ Dimitri said at the end of the TikTok video.

Leah Davina Junck, a researcher at the University of Cape Town, experimented to understand what ChatGPT means for dating apps, focusing on using it as dishonest.
Wring for The Conversation, she revealed users experimenting with ChatGPT found connecting with a match less tedious by replacing ‘cringy or boring human pick-up lines with more intriguing and personalized ones.’
Things started to change once people matched and started conversing with replies generated from ChatGP, which Junck licked as ‘catfishing.’
However, Tinder offers built-in chatbot technology to suggest opening lines, so users may be employing AI already without thinking about its ethics.
‘The fact that the Tinder users I interviewed kept deleting and redownloading the app showed me there’s a willingness to persevere, to navigate through the clichéd openers and posed images to get to more meaningful encounters,’ reads Junck’s article.
‘Experiences that felt inauthentic were part of this. Given that the bar is quite low on Tinder and people tend to play it safe by not revealing too much about themselves, bold and personalized ChatGPT may initially seem like a breath of fresh air.’
One man shared an exchange with a woman in the Tinder app, and ChatGPT generated all his messages.

As shared in a Reddit post, the conversation starts slow. The chatbot states the girl looks like Angelina Jolie, and more details are added to his messages that boost his personality and interest.
The thread is titled: ‘This is ChatGPT, the notorious AI Chatbot, flirting with a woman.’
One Tinder user also shared his experience on Reddit, noting that ‘a bot’ scheduled 13 dates for him in just one month.
‘However, all of this feels a bit dishonest,’ the Redditor shared.
‘On one hand, the bot has allowed me to meet more women who are compatible with me and has saved me a lot of time and effort.
‘But on the other hand, I feel like I’m not being genuine in my interactions.’
