Here’s a simple fact: It’s super hard to get a dating product funded by mainstream Silicon Valley investors, even though it’s a favorite startup category from 20-something entrepreneurs.Why not skip that step entirely and move straight to the engagement ring?Promise rings are a symbol of commitment or devotion between couples.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.
