Hide someone without blocking them
Hide someone so you don’t have to see the guy who rejected you, but they can still see/message you if they want to.
So you can remain unblocked without actually seeing their activity. Specially if you know them from outside grindr or you just want to be friends with someone without seeing their every move.
Scruff has it. It's very useful, like Joshua says. A lot of people don't reply, so why see them on the grid? But some of them don't reply because they had a busy period, so should have the chance to contact later if they end up wanting to.

I want this feature. Some guys aren’t egregious enough to block out. To not have to be reminded of a sour experience with them by having them show up on the grid would be nice. I wouldn’t want to shut them out completely if they come around at a later date and we reconciled.
why? if someone gives u the cold shoulder or ignores u over and over, why disrespect urself by leaving him the option of reaching out to u? if i see i've made 2 other attempts to contact someone and he cant show enough respect to acknowledge I a human took the time and energy to make an attempt to engage in chat or whatever it is, then i block him. I'm not trying to leave him the option of my energy or attention. LOL I'm no ones last choice HAHAHA. I also want to connect with confident guys willing to put words to his interest. HATE the "if no reply take the hint" how about grow a pair and so no, or my go it is "thanks, but for me it's not a match.. have a great day/night " only i guy in 18 months has replies negatively. its blunt, doesn't point out a problem with him. it's letting him no i dont have the same ideas or feelings he does. he can go find his yes. before i cloe the app for the night i go back and the guys i sent that too, i block so my feed stays with guys I do enjoy and want to enjoy connecting with friends or fun. No reason to feel bad ignoring others if u dont want to make a connection with him. LOL we all have our attractions our quirts, kinks, turn ons and offs. no reason to feel bad unless its with someone on a different mindset or mental age of consensual agreement. Meaning the other person have to be in agreement and accepting of ur company, and mental age of acceptance. I know 16 year olds more responsible than some 50 year olds and have been threw mother natures changes during that time. also know some 16 year olds that think **** jokes are funny, if ur over 20 keep ur hands off those people.
Yes. Right now I block people I'm not interested in so I dont have to keep sorting through the grid. Blocking seems harsh though. Lol. It would be nice to be able to hide them from just your view. (They can see you) and be able to toggle that filter on and off. If I'm looking to hookup, I only want to see who I'm interested in. But other times I'd like to be able to see everyone around me. Blocking should be able to be reserved for those who need blocked.
Great to clean the grid from inactive / unresponsive profiles of guys you otherwise wouldn't mind meeting up with
