ChatGPT on Tinder: A love poem from the chatbot
ChatGPT is currently on everyone’s lips: OpenAI’s chatbot has been met with great enthusiasm since it was released in November 2022. If you have created an account, you will find an answer to everything at ChatGPT (correctness and creativity are left open).

Also the site Mashable.com draws attention to this problem and uses TikTok reels to show how far communication with ChatGPT has already gone. For example, the TikToker “Tinder Veteran” had ChatGPT write a poem for his Tinder match, a woman who is over 1.80 meters tall. As he shows in his video and through the Tinder chat, his match was touched by receiving a poem – not knowing it came from ChatGPT. Her response to the lyrics was, “Oh my god. I have never met a man who wrote a poem for me. This is so cute. Oh my god I love it.”
Tinder Veteran has titled his TikTok “The Future of Tinder” – however, the use of chatbots in online dating is not new: Tinder users have already used bots in the past, to swipe and message for them. But with the help of the easily accessible ChatGPT, it is foreseeable that this will take place on a larger scale in the future.
