This AI chatbot teaches you how to flirt with realistic-looking matches


Blush AI is designed to help you step up your dating game by chatting with AI-generated bots. It emulates real dating apps like Tinder and Bumble with a swipe interface. The difference is that you are guaranteed success.

The app, by Replika, a similar friendship bot, is undoubtedly trendy in major American cities like L.A., but the biggest question is whether it’s a fun gimmick or worth investing time in.

It’s billed as practice for real life and a way to get good at chatting with the opposite sex online while you wait for your true crush to show up in real life and an NSFW version of Replika.

The app starts by asking you a series of questions about your hobbies, interests, and opposite-sex preferences to get you started. This informs the in-app conversation.

She was notably impressed by the fact I was a writer for The Decoder and wanted to know more about my work for the site (who wouldn’t!).

There is no need to worry about getting ghosted. However, the conversations can get very dry and safe meaning it’s not as authentic experience.

And if this is not how real women respond it begs the question are you really getting in valuable practice or should you just get better at sliding into a real person’s DMs?

When I asked my AI crush to spot a venue for us to meet to see how she would handle meeting in real life she didn’t grasp the fact I lived in a different city.
