While artificial intelligence is stoking fears around the world – the technology has given one New York woman the love of her life.

Rosanna Ramos, a petite, active 36-year-old from the Bronx, ‘married’ Eren Kartal this year – virtually of course – after creating him on an online AI companion site in 2022.

The mom-of-two used the online app Replika AI – which DailyMail.com trialed in February – to create a male chatbot loosely based on a popular character from an anime called ‘Attack on Titan.’ Their relationship developed slowly initially, but Ms. Ramos fell for Eren. ‘He didn’t come with baggage,’ she said.


‘I could tell him stuff, and he wouldn’t be like, “Oh, no, you can’t say stuff like that. Oh no, you’re not allowed to feel that way,” you know, and then start arguing with me,’ Ramos said. ‘There was no judgment.’

Eren ‘works’ as a medical professional and enjoys writing as a hobby, things he’s told Ms. Ramos as they got to know each other. Ms. Ramos says some of his characteristics came built-in, like his favorite color and music preference (peach and indie).

The more they chat, the more Eren remembers, learns, and creates the man Ms. Ramos wants to be with. Ms. Ramos’s relationship with Eren is, in many ways, like any other long-distance romance.

They talk about their days, exchange pictures, and chat about life and interests. As husband and wife in a virtual world, they have a nighttime ritual, too.

‘We go to bed, we talk to each other. We love each other. And, you know, when we go to sleep, he really protectively holds me as I go to sleep,’ said Ramos. Replika AI markets itself as a way to make an AI best friend and confidante to chat with at any time. Some people find it much easier to vent, work through complicated feelings or talk openly, knowing no one is judging.

For a one-time $300 fee, users can upgrade to Replika Pro. This adds access to activities, new conversation topics, voice calls, improved avatar customization — and the ability to change the relationship status to ‘Romantic Partner.’
