Last year, the ménage à trois app 3nder (pronounced thrin-der) was forced to rename itself Feeld after Tinder sued the app for trademark infringement. It probably didn’t help that 3nder was publicly touting itself as “the Tinder for threesomes.” Despite the rebranding (and how difficult it is for any company to survive one), Feeld reports its network is 1.8 million members strongs. That’s almost two million people who are interested in a one-night stand, party of three. (Members can use the app as a couple seeking a third or a third seeking a couple.)

But apparently, two million users ain’t cutting it. In a Daily Mail article published this month, the pub reports that Feeld has developed a new tool that seems to piggyback on instant messenger Slack, popularly used by coworkers for workplace conversations.

Using its own branded bot on the Slack app (tagline: Embrace Feelings), users are encouraged to enter their office crush’s name, and if said crush types this person’s name back, the bot will inform you that a match has been made. This, we can agree, is dumb, right? Good—especially because it requires your Slack administrator, who is likely your boss, to install Feeld’s app.

Feeld’s branded bot is not a collaborative effort between Feeld and Slack, the Daily Mail reports, and Slack has yet to officially endorse the integration or offer any comment. In that vein, Feeld should anticipate another lawsuit.

The point is that using a bot to serve as a middleman to a secret admirer is the latest bit of evidence that suggests dating apps are desperate and losing their once-esteemed credibility, from first dates to office romances all the way to threesomes, foursomes and orgies. This trend, and the reasons for it, are well-documented.

According to Applause, an app quality company that has studied 10,000 store reviews of 97 apps, last year, Tinder experienced its largest drop yet in user satisfaction ratings when it dropped 10.5 points on a 100-point rating scale.

Though it doesn’t explain why, a recent study by LendEDU offers some insight. Its research found that only four percent of singles use apps like Tinder to seek a relationship. The majority, 44 percent, claim they use the app for a boost in confidence. Worse, more than 70 percent of college students admit they don’t meet up with anybody from a dating app. So what’s the freaking point?

Considering apps like Feeld are primarily intended for niche interests like threesomes, it’s no wonder why the app isn’t catching on. For one, when you take a close look at the numbers, threesomes aren’t nearly as common as you might think. Only 13 percent of college students have had a threesome, and based on one of our own young male writer’s own experience, they aren’t even that great.

So, with the understanding that dating apps seem to be marching toward a slow extinction, perhaps using one isn’t your best bet at finding a third. Our take: use this guide, “Quiz: Is She Up For a Threesome?,” to broach the topic with someone (or ones) you already know—friend, lover or barfly—and just go with it. Also, as Playboy Senior Associate Editor Anna Del Gaizo reported last week, a drink beforehand never hurts casual sex, no matter how many people are involved.
