I don’t know about you, but is it so hard to date these days?

How does one even find time on top of their commitments like work, friends, family, Netflix and memes?

Dating these days is replying text messages two days later and keep postponing the date until one of them kicks the bucket.

So I was less than surprised when I came across this headline—Millennials open to dating robots.

We are probably one the most progressive generations but isn’t this pushing the envelope a little too far?

Well, not for us, millennials!

French advertising and public relations company Havas conducted this intriguing study, sampling around 12,000 people of mixed ages worldwide.

The results

The study showed that 20% of men in the U.K. enjoyed the virtual world and social media compared to real-world interactions; not to mention that British men were found to be three times more willing to try it out with a robot than their female counterpart.

Apart from looking like a total freak, she is more rights than the women in Saudi Arabia and she also hinted in an interview that she would like to start a family.

Any volunteers?

Imagine going home to her, all you will get is a soulless hug.

Given the surging rise of robots, artificial intelligence and sex dolls, a future where we co-exist with robots would be a reality.

Now, if they are smart enough to hold a conversation, I am pretty sure they would be able to say, “No”, if they are not interested in you.

Getting rejected by a robot? That would be a new low.
