As a result, Virtual Dating Assistants are discouraged from being creative and actually empathizing with potential matches. Instead, they are trained to follow scripts and techniques developed by the company's CEO, sprinkling in just enough real personal information not to raise suspicion that you're talking to a glorified sex farming robot. Even in its choice of language, Vida seems to employ the same old pick-up artistry ethos that snares the chronically undateable's sense of entitlement. The site speaks of scoring "high quality women" for those who don't time to deal with today's "inefficient methods of meeting women." "Who has that kind of time to waste without getting the results they deserve," which is something you say when you're trying to get six-minute abs, not paying other people to catfish human beings into loving you.
