The Welcome Post: Robot Love

18 Jan

A Good Bot Is Hard to Find

Hello, and welcome to the mind of a chronic online dater, who just happens to be a dude.

“I refuse to do Robot Love,” a friend said when I suggested he break up the drudgery of his dateless nights by trying online dating.

“You’re right. Better hang on to your lonely principles than find a cute robot on OkCupid.”

Let’s face it: with each month, those online personals you’re daily blasted with in your inbox, Google sidebar ad, and pasted all over your favorite magazines, websites, and subway trains are getting more intriguing and less and less frightening. Your friends have done it. Some have mocked it, others got married. If you’re between the ages of 18 and 99 and single, chances are you’ve at least thought about doing it. Maybe you posted a picture and quit without writing a word. If you’re a prude of slave to perceptions of stigma, you’ve had a friend create a profile for you despite your insincere protestations. You don’t have to be an oracle to foresee the future of romance–for many of us, clicking will always start with a face on your mobile phone, and like it or not, that’s just the way it is.

What nuggets of wisdom I have gained I will impart here both to provide an outlet to my bursting observations and hopefully add value to your romantic life.

Robot Love? So be it. Beep boop bop and may you find the right algorithm.
