Hi Andrea,

I do not think we are a good match. I am not interested in dating robots. Not to say you are a robot but your wiring gave it away. Can you also smell the sounds of burnt metal around you. A clear robot giveaway. I know that have made robots that look like people and they are living among us but I cannot have children with one and so I am sorry. Maybe you can tell whoever built you that until they make robots that can actually make babies with people they will always be left behind. How long do you have to live? I would be curious to know that before I stop talking to you forever.

Tony.

Hi Tony,

I was really hoping that you wouldn't notice my secret but I guess that was dishonest of me. I am sorry. We're built to last for at least 200 years. Some newer models can last up to 225 without being serviced. How long is the average human lifespan? Shorter? Longer? We just want to know for curiosity's sake.

OHMYGOD!!!! I didn't think you'd write back!!! Thought you were in some secret program or something. Wowww. What do you mean we? How many are you? Can you answer these questions? I don't want to get you in trouble but if you really are a robot can you tell me how many you are and who built you? Thank you thank you thank you!!

Hi Tony,

You'll find out the answers to your questions soon. At the same time as everyone else does. Very, very soon.

  2. I like OP for her sense of humor, and I want to sit down with Tony and talk about all the robots he's dated and why he thinks humanity could build a robot made to mimic a human in every way but be unable to bear a child

  3. I would have added that soon humans would be unable to reproduce as it would no longer be essential.

  4. Tony should have started all messages to OP with Domo arigato -- the official way to greet our metal friends.

    1. Do you think those of us with metal parts installed will still be lumped in with the squishy people when our new robotic overlords take over?

  5. Thought at first the date was pretending to be weird as not to hurt OP's feelings (there seems to happen quite often)... But it turns out the date was not pretending!
