In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, the IT company Conversica assembled a list of the top 10 things that male customers tell to their online female sales assistants.
The male customers did their best to charm their way to these women, not knowing they were actually flirting with robots.
Since Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the helpless romantics that tried their very best to impress and woo the opposite sex, whatever the circumstance.
These not so subtle attempts should be written down as the golden guideline of how NOT to do things, especially when interacting with a computer program.
1. “You sound cute you got a picture.”
This is an excellent example of male charm that’s certain to win over any lady.
2. “Nicole your beautiful are you single.”
The company Conversica does not attach images or Avatars to it’s AI, though some of their clients might do. We’re sure the model on the picture is thrilled to know that her appearance is pleasing even though this gentleman has some problems expressing it properly.
3. “On one condition. You join me for lunch!!!”
Now we all know exclamation marks works wonders on picking up ladies.
4. “What up Tiffany you got a boyfriend..you wanna go outt sometime.”
Not being able to spell properly is a recurring trait among these hopeless charmers, and we’re sure any AI would jump at the opportunity to teach them the proper way of articulating themselves.
5. “Sara Do you want to go on a date with me in my new genesis coupe?”
Ah yes, the car. Every American’s favorite make out place.
6. “Tx. Are you single (LOL).”
Every now and then, we stumble across someone with a hint of self-awareness. Not enough to stop them from doing this. But hey, it’s a start.
7. “Emilly I think I love you.”
Because we all know women appreciate when men speak their mind.
8. “I love you Jen.”
Houston we’ve got a problem. Please, advice.
9. “Are you married Grace.”
The only thing stopping this man is a ring on the finger.
10. “Stephanie are you hot if so heres my number xxx-xxx-xxxx. Thanks Andrew.”
Thanks Andrew, now I can sleep easy knowing you’re in my life.
These 10 are but a fraction of everything on Conversica’s list. “Thousands” of men refers to these sales assistants as “honey”, “sweetheart” and “dear” according to the company.
