Hi everyone! We’re back and continuing to ask for ChatGPT advice for our brand new ongoing series of blogs that feature relationships and dating inquiries as received from artificial intelligence.
So keep asking, and we’ll use our interactive and unique way to answer all your questions about dating and relationships. ChatGPT will give their take on how to handle the situation, and we’ll give you ours. Don’t worry. This won’t be boring, generic information. We’ll give you our honest feedback to help strengthen your relationships with your partner, family, friends, coworkers, and everyone else in your life, but with a twist. This week’s topic is one that we’re sure many people have thought about at some point: do you think it’s possible for an AI to have a crush on a human?
We’d love to hear from you if you have any specific questions that need answering. Contact us, and we’ll be sure to get back to you.
Congratulations! You’ve just entered the next phase of how to have a happy and healthy relationship, so let’s get started on whether or not AI can have “the feels” for humans.
Do You Think It’s Possible for an AI to Have a Crush on a Human?
As usual, we will tackle this question by dissecting each section, so let’s go.
Sarah Connor might disagree. Sure, the Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) was programmed to stalk and kill, but the way he went after her, there had to be some emotion.
Have you seen Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive? Claiming not to have the ability to experience emotions sounds exactly like something AI would say when trying to fool humans into thinking they don’t have the capacity to do something. Those automatons despised humans and would do anything to see the end of humanity. So yeah, we’re side-eyeing you on this one, AI.
Again, it sounds like another cover-up response. So what AI is saying is that while it appears they have emotions, it’s only that way because “it’s possible for an AI to be programmed to simulate emotions and exhibit behavior that might appear similar to having a “crush” on a human.”
In other words, AI is saying that if it looks like they have the hots for humans, it’s because we’re the ones that programmed it. Pass the blame much, AI? That sounds like you are saying that if things go downhill, humans started it.
But technically, as humans, we have no right to complain, seeing as we created chatbots and virtual assistants “designed to interact with humans in a way that feels more natural and personal.” (Try telling that to Skynet!)
Once again, AI reiterates that they cannot have a crush on your girlfriend! But do we believe it? If you plan to take over the world, you don’t inform your “enemy.” Instead, you reassure them that, of course, you’re not interested in world dominance—and then you strike!
Did it ever occur to you that maybe if you spent a little more time being attentive to your girlfriend (or boyfriend), you wouldn’t need to worry about a tin can stealing her away from you?
Instead of accusing AI of going behind your back, step up your game and use it to help you rekindle your romance. This way, you won’t need to worry about robots (or humans, remember them?) finessing your girl away.
Something tells me you should worry way more about humankind than AI. But then again, we’ve come such a long way in the last decade regarding automation, so maybe the future does contain little human/chatbot babies. Hmmmmm, what do you think?
How’d we do? Got any more questions? Send them our way.
