Tinder presented us with a quite long list of dating trends in its latest release “The Future of Dating 2023.”
The Future of Dating 2023 predicts 9 dating trends as a result of Gen Z’s authenticity, that according to Tinder will make the dating world the healthiest it has ever been!
The predicted Tinder dating trends are
- I am cringe but I am free
- Dating starts with me
- Quit playing games with me
- Welcome to my manifestation era
- I’ll have a scotch and soda, hold the scotch
- Technology doesn’t threaten me, it supports me
- The world is my neighborhood
- And everyone is my neighbor
- Should we even call it “dating”?
Trend number 6 is ‘Technology doesn’t threaten me, it supports me’. That’s the part where Tinder elaborates further on AI’s impact on online dating.
Just like the name of it says, Tinder is highly supportive of AI having an impact on dating!
According to Tinder and the surveys they made, 34% of Gen Z would be quite happy for AI to assist in crafting a decent dating profile.
There is, however, hesitance as well, considering the fact that—since it’s AI-generated—the profiles could turn into generic and inauthentic ones.
HeTexted reports that authenticity is described to be held in tremendously high regard by Gen Z, hence Tinder predicts that AI could just take the role of a digital wingmate.
Surprisingly, the 18-25-year-olds seem to have agreed that AI could give them a hand to craft a bio, or to get a conversation start flowing.
According to Tinder, “AI’s potential to act like a coach in helping young singles authentically highlight their unique qualities is pretty impressive.”
Considering human nature and our ‘need for more’, we might just find ourselves reaching out to AI anytime we’re in need regarding online dating.
That, would then, defy the idea of ‘authenticity’ Tinder holding on to so dearly.
The best news in this part, however, lies in the fact that AI can improve the safety of online dating.
Tinder already claims to benefit from AI to advance its users’ safety. However, it also claims to seize even more opportunities and create more features that fashion a safe space for online dating.
Although we’re skeptical of the efficiency of using AI as your dating coach, we’re absolutely hopeful for its help regarding user safety in online dating! All eyes on you, Tinder!
