This is not a drill.
AI girlfriends are coming…
In fact, they’re already here.
Let me explain…
You’ve heard of ChatGPT, Bard, and all the other type-to-text AI platforms.
Now, you can use a feature called talk-to-text and vice versa.
It’s not entirely new… nothing is.
And I’m not talking about saying “Hey, Alexa” or “Hey, Google.”
We all know how terrible these programs are and how behind the ball Amazon and Google are in the AI race.

It contains full details on why dividends are an amazing tool for growing your wealth.
ChatGPT uses a software called “Whisper” that processes your voice input. It then filters that input through ChatGPT’s large language model to come up with a response using professional voice actors.
You can ask it questions, have it tell you a bedtime story, etc.
Seems harmless enough.
But when you pair that technology with AI supermodels?
Well, it could be a recipe for disaster.
I’m talking about an intimate relationship with an AI… one that you’re definitely going to want to hide from your friends and family.
Here’s the proof.
A new website called Kupid.ai is making the rounds on the news and social media.
It’s a website that lets you fully interact with multiple AI-generated supermodels.
It uses this chat feature to have full-on conversations with you and learn about you in the process.
You ask it questions, it asks you questions, you can respond, it responds…
This company has created such ultra-realistic AI chatbabes that I can’t even show you a picture because it’s definitely not safe for work.
CNN ran a piece about it, saying that AI girlfriends pose a threat to an entire generation of men.
This isn’t entirely true, as it’ll be only a small minority of the male population that gets hooked on these things.
I think the implications of this type of AI reach far beyond one generation of men, though.
Think about it…
The ability to talk to an AI that knows everything about you, knows what you like and what you don’t like, and asks about your day… Well, I think it’ll be more than just men using this service.
It’ll even send you nudes for 20 bucks a month…
And you don’t even have to take her out to dinner!
Cheaper than having a real girlfriend, I suppose.
But all joking aside, taking this one step further, what happens when we pair this speech technology with the real deal?
An AI robot with the likeness of a human that interacts with you and helps you through life in more ways than one?
Things are about to get weird.
But before we get ahead of ourselves, we must first look at how we got here.
The Loneliness Epidemic
It’s no secret that we’re more isolated than ever.
Even with our apparent technological connections through social media, we’re frighteningly alone.
It all started way before COVID, but as with everything else, COVID accelerated the trend.
First it was emailing instead of sending a letter… then texting instead of calling… instant-messaging instead of texting… Facebook messaging instead of IM-ing… DM-ing on Instagram instead of FB-messaging…
It was a perfect recipe for disaster once the pandemic hit.
Isolate everyone, not just the vulnerable.
Shut businesses down.
Make us cover our faces and empower illogical thought bubbles to become the mainstream.
Tell us lies.
Confuse the populace.
Cut us a check to shut us up.
Inflate the currency while the fat cats in Washington party like it's 1999.
Force us to vaccinate in the middle of a pandemic.
Censor those who don't go along with the plan.
Essentially, we’ve been forced into hiding.
So it’s no wonder that the Surgeon General just released a new advisory last week called “Our Epidemic of Loneliness and Isolation.”
Keep in mind that advisories are released when an issue poses an immediate threat to public health.
The report found that people aged 15–24 were most at risk, with physical consequences including increased risk of heart disease and stroke — and older adults are at increased risk of dementia.
Surgeon General Vivek Murthy spoke to NPR and said, “It’s hard to put a price tag, if you will, on the amount of human suffering that people are experiencing right now. In the last few decades, we’ve just lived through a dramatic pace of change. We move more, we change jobs more often, we are living with technology that has profoundly changed how we interact with each other and how we talk to each other.”
And it’s just the beginning.
It only tracks that the loneliness epidemic might be giving rise to a niche AI kink, but there’s a silver lining…
The AI Tool
Look, life ain’t easy.
Getting yourself an AI girlfriend won’t solve your loneliness problems.
It might work in the short term and be fun for a while, but at what psychological cost?
The inevitable next step is a human-like robot that uses this technology.
Sure, some people will use it to get their rocks off, but the smart ones will use it like any other tool.
Your own personal butler or assistant… an all-knowing AI that’s exceptionally good at its job.
And believe it or not, it’s going to be used by every single person on Earth.
Think about the iPhone…
The first time I saw one, I thought it was the dumbest thing I’d ever seen.
I’ll stick to my flip phone, thank you very much — I don’t need to use an app to go to a website, I’ll just use my computer.
Well, fast-forward just a few years and it’s selling like hotcakes.
We literally can’t make enough of them.
Had I bought Apple stock instead of naysaying the technology, well, I probably wouldn’t be here writing this to you today.
So the AI chatbot investment angle is clear, simple, and right in front of you.
Put your money into the technology, and don’t look back.
So that’s my challenge to you.
After all, beauty fades, but interest compounds.
