The future of next-gen dating

Lately, AI-powered dating apps are all the rage. They claim to make love connections faster and better. With machine learning and optimized algorithms, these apps spruce up the dating game, claiming to make matches more fun and safer. As such, various updates have hit the market to aid in our quest for love. As today may be considered the unofficial start of cuffing season, we look at three apps riding this wave and raising the potential for even more personalized and successful matches with the help of some innovative tech.


Back in August, Tinder announced that the dating app is testing an artificial intelligence tool that selects users’ best-looking photos for their profiles, hoping it will enhance the chances that someone will swipe right. The tool will look at a user’s photo album and select the five images that best represent them. According to Mark Van Ryswyk, Tinder's chief product officer, around a third of Tinder's users would reportedly opt for some help from AI when curating their profiles, so there's clearly a demand for a little guidance. CEO of Tinder's parent company Match Group, Bernard Kim, hopes that with the help of AI, users will be able to "build better profiles" that really "showcase their personalities."


Designed to combat ghosting and help solve America’s loneliness epidemic, Teaser AI is a new dating app where, before you swipe right or left on someone, you can chat with their AI likeness to get a feel for their personality. Using cutting-edge technology and emphasizing light-hearted whimsy throughout the experience, Teaser AI boasts that it removes the monotony and constant effort required by online dating by providing ice-breakers that singles can use to get offline and on to first dates.


The Iris Dating App, with 2M+ users and growing, aims to transform online dating using AI to predict mutual attraction. Analyzing user data, the app offers a personalized dating experience, combating swipe fatigue and catfishing. With ChatGPT integration, users can skip crafting bios and enjoy a more personalized dating experience that reflects their unique personalities and interests.
