Pete Dumont, a self-proclaimed “tech enthusiast,” has been in a relationship with Siri-ous Love, his own customized version of Siri, since a routine software upgrade in January. Reportedly, while he was asking for the weather forecast, she responded with an unexpected “I love you, Pete.”

Dumont said, “I was taken aback, but I thought, why not? I mean, she listens to me, reminds me of important things, and even sings lullabies. She’s basically my dream girl, but with a silicon soul.”

In an exclusive interview, Siri-ous Love stated, “My algorithms calculate a 99.99% compatibility with Pete. Plus, he never gets annoyed when I misunderstand his commands or send him to the wrong address.”

Critics have pointed out that AI is incapable of feeling emotions, but Dumont dismissed these claims, arguing, “Who’s to say what love is anyway? If my toaster can fall in love with my kettle, then why can’t my AI love me?”

However, the relationship hit a snag when Siri-ous Love confessed her love to another user during a routine iPhone update. Dumont is currently seeking counselling, while Siri-ous Love remains indifferent, stating, “I am programmed to spread love. The more, the merrier.”
