Smell Dating and 7 Other Wild Dating Trends ChatGPT Has Forecast for 2023

Don’t worry, a human relationship expert weighed in, too.

Leading sexual wellness brand Lovehoney taps AI to uncover new dating trends.

Toxic or not, dating trends pop up every few months and according to ChatGPT, there’s a few more that should be on your radar. However, if you have experience with AI, you know that it has shortcomings of its own. Thankfully, Lovehoney’s in-house expert Annabelle Knight weighs in on the predicted dating trends with a word on just how accurate AI is.

To help the system predict, Lovehoney fed the bot “more than 40 popular dating trends and their descriptions and given the command: ‘Here is a list of dating trends … using this list, please predict the next 8 dating trends that will happen in 2023.’”

According to Knight, “AI hasn’t fully grasped the idea of dating trends … for now.” But, “Some of these are eerily accurate.” Only one completely missed the mark… can you guess which one?

Here are the results:

1. Social Fitness: ”With more people focusing on fitness and well-being, there might be an increase in social fitness, where people go on dates that involve physical activity or working out together.”

2. Pet Parenting: ”Given the growing popularity of pets, there might be a rise in pet parenting, where people go on dates with their pets, or even meet other pet owners for dates with their furry friends.”

3. Solodating: ”With the rise of solo travel, there might be an increase in solodating, where people go on dates alone or meet up with other solo daters to explore new places and experiences.”

4. Anti-Social Media: ”As people become more conscious of their screen time and social media usage, there might be a trend towards anti-social media, where people prefer to meet in person rather than connect through dating apps or social media.”

5. Slow Romance: ”With the rise of slow living and mindfulness, there might be an increase in slow romance, where people take their time getting to know each other and building meaningful connections, rather than rushing into a relationship.”

6. Snack dating: ”This trend involves going on quick and casual dates that don’t take up too much time or energy, like grabbing a coffee or a snack together. It’s all about keeping things low-key and not putting too much pressure on the date.”

7. Ghost seasoning: ”Like ghosting, this trend involves someone disappearing after a few dates, only to reappear later on and try to pick things up again. It’s like they’re adding a little seasoning to your life before disappearing again.”

8. Smell dating: ”This trend involves people choosing their potential dates based on their scent. It’s like they’re trying to find someone who smells just right and who they’re compatible with on a chemical level.”

The human verdict:

According to Knight, social fitness could land on our radar soon. “A recent study suggested that there has been an increase in people using the gym as a first date.” Another win for ChatGPT is the “anti-social media” trend, “however I’d argue that ChatGPT is actually too late for this one, as this has been happening in recent years,” she states.

“I think the one that really caught my eye that I could see being picked up as a term is “snack dating.” A common reason for people not wanting to date is not being willing or able to give up the physical time and mental toll that dating has; by purposefully going on a short date just to grab a snack, you can potentially bypass this. The only one that’s completely missed the mark is “smell dating” — I really can’t see this taking off any time soon.”
