Tips for Using AnastasiaDate, Part I

humorous and smart image depicting AI-generated personas on a dating site like AnastasiaDate.comAs someone who has now spent several months and thousands and thousands of dollars on, I thought some of my recent experiences might be of use to other men using that dating site. On that site, I have also received thousands upon thousands of introductory letters from ladies, and have had chats and videos with quite a few. Therefore, my thoughts and observations, whether correct or incorrect, are at least predicated upon broad experience.

Prefatorily, AnastasiaDate is overall a very good dating site.  The women are generally real human beings (more on that below, re AI), and many strike me as genuine in their emotions and intentions.  It is expensive, but everything of value tends to be.  The women on the site are in many instances spectacularly beautiful.

However, fraud can occur on AnastasiaDate (“AD”) just like anywhere else, and I therefore strongly recommend employing the services of Ukrainian Passport to run a background check on a lady before committing either too much time, or money, to her.  Here are some of the species of fraud I have observed.  I will not address some of the worst and most sensitive – again, I strongly recommend Ukrainian Passport to help uncover those.

In all of the following, by the way, I am presupposing that AD is not itself an enormous criminal enterprise, though this is of course possible (more on this below as well).

Artificial Intelligence

I have the overwhelming impression that at least three ladies with whom I have had actual video chats were in fact AI generated images, not real human beings.

This is initially surprising, as to my understanding AD conducts diligence on all the ladies who wish to become members of the site, including review of their passport and various other identifying information, questionnaires, and a real time interview.

However, it appears that an individual who has a false passport can get past the site’s national ID checking protocols, and with a sophisticated AI system can get through the real time (presumably video) interview.

The reason I think at least three of the ladies with whom I have had long video calls were fact AI, not human, is based on the following observations.

First, the image does not move like a normal human being. The image is too still, too static, and the movements exhibited are limited to a small handful, none of which involve gross motor movement but instead are generally restricted to the head, neck, face areas.  In particular, the arms don’t move.  This is a person who is allegedly typing chat responses to you.  If you watch very carefully, staring at those arms, they won’t move.  The shoulders don’t move.  In one, the spacing between the arms and the body was slightly different on the two sides, but that spacing never varied, not even once, over the entire course of a long video chat.  The movements of the face, for example the smile, look identical each time they are made.  Similarly, there are often large movements of the head to the side, apparently hearing something or looking at something off screen. But every single time, the precise pattern of the head turning, the angle, the direction, everything, is precisely identical each time.  Moreover, the larger movements, like the head, are a little crunchy, not smooth and continuous, but rather like a series of shorter sequences pasted together.  And identically the same, each time.  That is, there is a kit bag of facial expressions and movements from which the AI system may draw something, but it is a limited kit bag, and every single movement comes from that kit bag.

To uncover and defeat this, I have asked such a “lady” to do something that likely wouldn’t be in the kit bag, for example, take off the locket around her neck and hold it up to the camera, or move around a bit in her chair, anything other than the established kit bag.  The response (approximately): “This is an unusual request.  Why do you want me to do that?”  I said, “To show me you aren’t just an AI image.  Play along with me, humor me, please.” No movement, just a chat response, “Why would I make ridiculous movements in front of the camera? Why are you asking me this?”

But don’t rely on waving at the lady and hoping she’ll wave back – the AI picks up on that, and has a wave all ready to go for you.  Likewise, don’t just ask her to smile, the AI is all over that, and will trigger an automated smile by the lady.

The resolution of the AI images is also not quite as sharp as the real human beings.  The humans can have crystal sharp resolution, which is difficult for an AI system to mimic.  A slight lack of focus, a slight haziness, helps the AI system past all that.

Then, there are the responses in conversation.  Again, the kit bag.  The AI system has a collection of stock things a lady can say to a guy which guys tend to like.  The AI systems are really good at mimicking normal conversation.  But if you go off the beaten track, particularly if you ask the AI system a question, something more complex, some atypical, the AI system may not have an obvious stock response to give.  So it reaches back into the kit bag, finds something it thinks will like to hear, and “types” that back to you, rather than actually answering your question.  This can, of course, also happen with real humans, but if it becomes a pattern, if it becomes an impediment to conducting an actual exchange of ideas back and forth, then my own conclusion has been AI.
