Although people have been cheating long before social media existed, it certainly seems that the abundance of available potential partners who are accessible by a swipe, can make monogamy less appealing.(Exhibit A: Tristan Thompson who's rumored to have been cheating on Khloe with women he messaged on Instagram.) We spoke to two love experts to discover their thoughts on the matter, as well as real people who have found love online, in spite of all that.If you’re single, you can set up an account stating your preferences and curiosities, as you might with any other service.The app lists 20 possibilities for sexuality alone, including heteroflexible (straight-ish) and homoflexible (gay, for the most part).
The app was released in 2014 by Dimo Trifonov and Ana Kirova, two graphic designers living in London, as 3nder (pronounced “Thrinder”).
They hoped to appeal to individuals and partners looking to join or have threesomes.
But after Tinder filed a lawsuit and the company rebranded as Feeld (as in “playing the”), the founders said they welcomed the opportunity to expand the mission of the app.“Feeld is a platform for alternative dating, for people who are beyond labels,” Ms. “They can meet each other without the necessity of coming from a very defined place with a very defined requirement.”According to the company, the majority of Feeld users are between the ages of 26 and 32, and they cluster in major cities: New York, London, São Paulo, Los Angeles and Paris.
(See “thrupple,” a term sometimes used to describe a romantic partnership for three people.) And it’s certainly popular, or at least, of growing interest to many.
The company did not provide the most up-to-date download information (in 2016, it reported 1.5 million downloads), but says there are currently 12,000 connections made on Feeld and an average of 100,000 messages sent on a daily basis.
