LOS ANGELES - Coyne Lloyd, a 35-year-old tech investor, was visiting his family in Upstate New York recently when he decided to set up some dates in the city. He fired up Hinge, his preferred dating app, and swiped on a few interesting women. After receiving a couple of matches, he turned, out of curiosity, to a new AI dating tool called Rizz to break the ice.
"There's some amount of mental work and barrier to thinking of how to compose a message [on a dating app]," Lloyd said. "It's like getting started on a term paper."
