"Can a Computer Fall in Love if It Doesn't Have a Body? Much has been written about Spike Jonze's Her, the Oscar-nominated tale of love between man and operating system. It's an allegory about relationships in a digital age, a Rorschach test for technology. It's also premised on a particular vision of artificial intelligence as capable of experiencing love.

Poetic license aside, is that really possible ?"

    can a computer fall in love?

    depends on how you define love.

    if you can come up with a definition that everyone agrees with, you will not only answer this question but have a best seller book.

    I recall Haddaway said "What is love? Baby, don't hurt me. Don't hurt me no more"

    Not sure if that helps...
