How AI can help you fix your messy love life

Let a bot be your wingwoman

No matter how you feel about AI—whether you’re stocking up on canned goods in preparation for the robot apocalypse or looking forward to having your own personal AI butler to do your laundry for you—it’s here, so we may as well use it. You may have already been using tools like ChatGPT to help you do mundane tasks like writing cover letters, but have you considered AI’s potential applications in your love life? Let’s get into it.

1. Craft the perfect text

One of the hardest things about dating (other than actually going on dates) is the often-confusing communication you have to navigate when talking to someone new. Enter AI. You can give it your message history and ask it to analyze what that last cryptic text from them was all about, or you can have it write the perfect email letting someone down easy (or asking if they want to take things to the next level).

2. Plan creative dates

Imagine an assistant that helps plan dates tailored just for you, factoring in your interests, budget, and even the weather. ChatGPT can do just that. Use it to come up with date ideas that go beyond the typical dinner-and-a-movie, whether it’s a sunset hike, a virtual tour of the Louvre, or a cooking class.

3. Make hard conversations easier

Disagreements are natural in any relationship, and they can either strengthen your bond or create distance between you. While we’re big fans of couples therapy, there are many reasons why it’s not always an option for people. But what are accessible to most are a whole bunch of new AI tools to help you plan the best approach to bringing something up with a partner or resolving a long-standing issue.

4. Pick a birth control method

ChatGPT can actually be really useful in helping you think through your birth control options. We’d recommend double checking any birth control info you get there against our Method Explorer, but it can be a good place to start if you’re feeling overwhelmed!

5. Show your love through gifts

Gift-giving can be so rewarding, but it can also be stressful trying to think of something unique and special that your partner will love. Tell ChatGPT what they’re into, your price range, and what the occasion is, and let it generate ideas for you! No more googling “good gifts for someone you’ve been dating for a year.”
