I know its just a movie but what do you guys think?
Can a robot who looks like a real human have a real relationship with a human?
No. Robots don't have a soul. Anything that naturally arises out of life has a soul, or at least a spirit or energy about it you can't describe, and is intrinsic and unique to that being.

Even plants have life to them. You can't measure that uniqueness under a microscope.

You can dissect it however which way you want, but you can't replicate the intangibles.

They're just instructions.
I have always been told that romance is about spontaneity. What you just described is not spontaneous, it sounds more like the feminine equivalent of what guys do (a.k.a instructions). Nothing wrong with that, it just does not appear to be romance as stated earlier. As of yet there appears to be no hope of artificial intelligence providing spontaneity.

Irrelevant considering women would have a much more difficult time dealing with the fact that it's a robot no matter how life-like then men. Sure there would be men that couldn't get past it either, but I would bet BIG money if said fembot was as life-like as you could get and you could customize everything about her from her appearance, to height, to personality I'm sure it would have a huge market with men. It definitely would be nice to have them as an option anyway since if men started buying these fembots en mass real women would be forced to greatly lower their expectations and be far more realistic.

I have to admit, the thought of having a fembot that I could get to cook/clean etc. while I'm at work then come home to a clean house with a nice meal ready then afterwards take her to "bed" then when finished have her stand/sit near a wall outlet to charge without nagging sounds pretty damn rad!

I think all those things are romantic. I don't need to be surprised to enjoy a romantic evening. However, as I said earlier, robots are incapable of love; that's why I wouldn't respond to the programmed actions any more than I would to a man I knew was lying to me but doing all the right things. I was responding to a poster who said that the development of female robots would encourage human women to lower their expectations of men and be less picky due to robot competition. I responded that there would also be male robots with all the customizable features and actions.

Right on. Start saving up, I guess.

BIG ethical debate aside, What I don't get is you can pretty much buy all that stuff now... hire a housekeeper/cook and then hire an escort. You get the same thing as paying for a fembot or whatever--probably for a lot less money.

I think a lot of this talk about wanting a robot lover is just that, talk about fantasies that really won't come true because people can pretty much get what they want now (but they still don't do it or can't afford it). People who can't afford a maid to come in for $75 a week (that's what the lady who cleans my house charges) aren't going to be able to pay for and maintain a life-like robot either.

Come to think about it.... a fembot would be nice.

I would totally customize mine! much like guys customize/soup-up their cars

Extended battery
Retractable teeth
Vibrating forehead
freakadroid chipset
and so on....
