“Since the beginning Feeld’s mission was to make our society more accepting and open,” Feeld’s founder and “chief inspiration officer” Dimo Trifonov told me in an email.
“You can say that Feeld is for forward-thinking humans who don’t put themselves in predefined frameworks.” Society has “tried so hard to make work this cold place where [we] just earn money,” he goes on, “that the concept of bringing feelings there might scare some people.
Last week, the dating app Feeld released a bot that, theoretically at least, lets you find out if your co-workers have crushes on you.
The way it works is this: Once the bot is installed in the office chat platform Slack, you message the bot with the name of your crush. If they have also messaged the bot with a confession of love for you, the bot will let you know you like each other.
A place where people share a common interest, and spend most of their time, provides the perfect opportunity for love.
If they do choose to interfere, what department should be in control of handling the situation and what policies should be set if workplace romances do happen.
When in a workplace people grow bonds with their co-workers that go beyond just friendly 'lunch' meetings.
They grow in-depth relationships that deepen into romance.
This helps to protect the company from later charges that the relationship was not consensual and constituted sexual harassment.
With this type of policy, the employees would also have to notify you whenever a relationship ends.
