Incidentally, which is better, for the losers in the mating game:

A non-sentient lover, or involuntary celibacy?

Maybe celibacy is worse---but they're both pretty bad.

Spoken like somebody who'd far enough up the food chain that the difference between them seems pretty small.

Take a third option.

I find the ideas of courtesans somehow less... creepy than nonsentient catgirls.

Also, If you are capable of creating catgirls you are capable of creating the Dating Advice AI?

If you have to pay them, then this is likely not satisfying their values in itself. Surely satisfying your values without dissatisfying others' is better?

Also, really? You think Dating Advice is enough?

Or the Matchmaking AI (Implying something more... human than contemporary dating sites.)

A very good idea, that.
