Skittish rats should I introduce a 3rd?

Hello,

I have two very terrified rats they're coming up to 6 months old I've had them nearly a month now. 

I'm at a total loss with bonding with them they just dont seem to be improving, they're still terrified of me. I'm taking all the advice I'm given regarding talking to them, treats, leaving them wander on their own terms etc. They still won't roam about my room they're still scared of everything. 

I was wondering maybe would introducing a 3rd boy from a good breeder maybe help? If hes a bit more confident and bonds with me and they see I mean no harm it'll bring along their confidence? 

I'm just at a loss and it's becoming a little disheartening
