Man claims he used ChatGPT to chat with over 5,000 women on Tinder

A man claims to have used ChatGPT to chat with more than 5,000 women on Tinder. The author of the experiment, Aleksandr Zhadan, told X (formerly Twitter) how he took advantage of the bot's capabilities to find the perfect partner.

For the task, Aleksandr used the GPT-3 API, OpenAI's artificial intelligence model, to create a Tinder bot. The program had Basic capabilities to filter suitors, choosing those with at least two photos on their profile.

In addition to distributing likes across the platform, the bot can also start conversations. The initial interaction served the prompt “You are a man and you are talking to a woman for the first time. Your task is not to immediately ask her out on a date.”

In practice, the bot managed 18 matches, but the chats didn't yield much. Aleksandr says that the bot kept the chat going until the third or fourth message, while the longest chat yielded 10 messages.

This version of the bot, however, had imperfections: the bot's questions began to repeat themselves after a few submissions, cooling down the chat with the suitors. So, with the launch of ChatGPT, Aleksandr improved the bot, improving the AI ​​and implementing image recognition.

In this iteration, Aleksandr implemented even more accurate like filters. In addition to only considering women with more than 2 photos, the bot also excluded those who used photos with flowers, profiles without bios and nudity.

ChatGPT in search of the perfect suitor

According to Aleksandr, the ChatGPT bot got 5,239 matches and managed to set up dates with all the women. On some days, the author of the experiment had up to six meetings scheduled.

Eventually, the bot finds a girl named Karina. He continues to use AI to communicate with her, watching the dialogue closely and noticing how ChatGPT dodges difficult questions while keeping the suitor entertained.

According to Aleksandr, developing the bot took approximately 120 hours and interactions with the API cost US$1,400 (approximately R$7,000).

As soon as the story went viral on social media, some people were suspicious of the report. In some comments, users mention that the story itself may have been generated by AI.
