The text robot Chat GBT should be able to provide answers to everything between heaven and earth – but how good is it at giving advice on dating and relationships? Metro Mode investigates.
The possibilities with Chat GBT seem endless – so far it has tackled everything from law examiner to writing film scripts – but the question is: Can Chat GBT give us useful dating advice?
What is Chat GBT?
Chat GBT is an AI service from the American company Open AI.
The service consists of a so-called text robot or virtual assistant that has been allowed to read in large amounts of information from various sources online. It uses the data to generate texts based on simple directives and various variables.
Chat GBT interacts in the form of a conversation, which according to Open AI means that it can “answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, question incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests”.
Dating tips from Chat GBT
When we asked Chat GBT for dating tips, it first explained that it had no personal experience with dating, but could give us some “general advice based on common social and psychological principles.”
Here is a selection!
What’s your best tip for online dating?
1. Be clear about what you want: Before you get started, think about what you want out of a relationship. Do you want something casual or something serious? Are you looking for a special type of person? Knowing what you’re looking for can help you filter out incompatible partners and find people who are looking for the same thing as you.
2. Create a genuine and attractive profile: Your profile is your chance to make a good first impression, so make sure it gives a true picture of who you are. Choose some good photos that show your personality and write a bio that reflects your interests and what you’re looking for in a relationship.
3. Be active. Don’t wait for people to write to you. Take the initiative and start conversations with people who interest you. Be friendly, engaged, and ask thoughtful questions to get to know the person better.
4. How patient: Finding the right partner can take time, so don’t give up if you don’t find love right away. Be open-minded and take the time to get to know people before you decide to meet them IRL.
5. Be careful: Remember to date safely online. Don’t share personal information too soon, and always meet in a public place when you first meet. Trust your instincts and if you feel uncomfortable with someone, don’t be afraid to block or report them.
Bottom line: The key to finding love on a dating app is to be genuine, patient and active. Be open-minded, be yourself, and have fun while meeting new people.
How do I start a conversation on a dating app in a good way?
1. Read their profile: Before starting the conversation, take the time to read through their profile. Look for common interests, hobbies, or values that you can use to start a conversation.
2. Be original and creative: Avoid generic opening phrases that are clichéd and uninspiring. Instead, try to think of something original and creative to say. You could ask a question about something in their profile or comment on a shared interest. The goal is to show that you are interested in getting to know them and that you have taken the time to think about what you want to say in the conversation.
3. Be open and positive: Avoid negative or judgmental comments. Remember that you are trying to connect with the other person, so aim for a light-hearted tone.
4. Use humor: A little humor can go a long way in getting a conversation going. If you can make the other person laugh, it can break the ice and make the conversation more relaxed and fun.
5. Avoid being too pushy: It’s important to show interest, but avoid being too pushy or making inappropriate comments. Respect the other person’s boundaries and be patient while building a relationship.
Remember, the most important thing is to be yourself and to be authentic. Be respectful, kind, and show a genuine interest in the other person.
What is your best dating advice in general?
1. Be yourself: Be true to yourself and don’t try to be something you’re not to impress others. Authenticity is important to be able to connect with others in a genuine way.
2. Communication is important: Honest and open communication is fundamental to making a relationship work. Express your thoughts, feelings and expectations clearly and actively listen to your partner.
3. Take it easy: Don’t rush things, but take your time getting to know the person you’re dating. Laying the foundation for a relationship takes time and effort.
4. Show respect: Respect your partner’s boundaries and choices. Treat them as you would like to be treated yourself.
5. Have fun: Dating should be a fun experience. Try to have fun and enjoy spending time with the person you are with.
6. Watch out for red flags. Watch for signs of controlling, harmful or manipulative behaviors in your partner. Don’t ignore these warning signs and act to protect yourself if necessary.
Finally: Remember that it’s okay to make mistakes and learn from them.
As the text robot itself says, its advice is general – in other words, they hardly contribute anything that feels new or revolutionary. At the same time, the advice is undeniably very sensible and we cannot criticize any of it.
In addition, it was impressive to see the speed at which the text was produced, and we are just as convinced as before that text bots will one day take over our jobs.
