How People are less likely to swipe right on dating profiles written by AI

AI may be slowly taking over the world, but it’s still lagging behind in online dating, a study claims.

Singletons are much more likely to swipe right on a real-life profile compared to one written by ChatGPT.

The results showed that 36 percent of women said yes on Tinder to an AI-generated man, but this rose to nearly 64 percent who did so for real life details.

But it was much closer for men, who swiped right for 46 percent of AI summaries and 54 percent of human-written summaries.

Alex Limanowka, a relationship coach and psychotherapist, said, “This gender disparity suggests that men tend to rely more on photos and swipe right without reading the woman’s profile.”

She emphasizes that AI’s impact is growing on dating apps, where it is used to generate personal information and edit photos.

But she admitted that the experiment showed that humans still had the upper hand over chatbots, as they would invariably provide more original answers.

Because users are drawn to distinctive personalities, she added, “AI can produce perfectly accurate descriptions, but it can’t capture the essence of human uniqueness.”

One in four of those who got engaged or got married recently met online for the first time, according to a survey of 5,000 couples.

Further research suggests dating app marriages are less likely to end in divorce.

The experiment, by gambling platform Mecca Games, used Tinder profiles contributed by volunteers.

Human biographies tended to have more original answers, citing specific passions and giving more personal details, while the AI-generated answers were more vague, with generic sentences more akin to a job offer letter.
