There are so many real-life relatable moments in this episode that make it really special and add to its realism. If dating companies could build The System, they sure as hell would!
The typical user has no awareness of the technology that’s powering their dating apps.
You might think there’s no rhyme or reason to the order or the quality or even the responsiveness of your matches on dating apps, but that’s not true.
If you are regular reader of this web site, then it’s highly likely you are kinky. And you likely spend a good amount of time playing with it, fantasizing about it, or living it.
And by kinky, I don’t mean that you like to spice things up with your partner once and a while with some silk scarves. You may have always known you were kinky – since before you even knew what sex was, you were drawn to situations and depictions involving power exchange and bondage.
It’s also about trusting yourself to know when someone is or isn’t right for you. If we weren’t capable of believing that, online dating wouldn’t be a thing.
No one would bother enduring terrible dates and awkward sex and constant disappointment.

Better than you could do for yourself when you’re drunk swiping on Tinder! Dating app Hinge launched a bot you can pay extra for that will do all the searching, messaging and scheduling for you. That’s the goal of AI, to be a flawlessly programmable version of you. If you can’t be bothered to figure out how to send a message to another human, how do you figure out all the other, much more complicated bits?
