  1. Date of creation of profile (avoiding fake profiles created and deleted on a daily base)

    If the user sees that a profile was created recently its a good and quite reliable sign that a profile is fake (of course together with other circumstances like: empty profile, immediately asking for nude pics etc - we call them pic collectors).on one hand 90% of real users are constant with the same profile over months or years. Then we got profiles created 2h ago, empty profile (no data), fake pic of a extremely good looking guy which disappears after 1 day. If there is a date of creation of profile written in the profile and you see this…

  5. See when member joined

    Joining date, when I see a profile that has been active longer I would believe it's a person that's not just after pictures or someone I just blocked.

  7. More sophisticated profile

    Even if it’s a hookup, most times you are going to want something to talk about before you unzip. Profiles are always loaded with user’s ridiculously rules, qualifications and expectations. Having a place to connect with someone on the basis of sports, education, jobs, interest would be a plus

  8. Reputation Factor

    Everyone has the ability to choose a particular option. That option counts as a +1 or -1 in its category. Then factor in blocking and other ways to alert the community to profiles that are reputably negative, racist, FAKE, or otherwise non-responsive. Provide various reputable data points in a very easy to read format on their profile without any means for the individual to remove it. Creating communal reputation will help the many of us who use this app to easily avoid fake, imposters, empty profiles and avoid the many issues this app creates. Those who eventually develop a particularly…

  9. Hide Profile Switch

    Ideal option for users that would like to not be seen by our coworkers and bosses.

    Enabling would immediately remove profiles from view. Disabling would allow them to be seen again.

    The text "hidden" would be written across our profiles so that we remember to disable it once we are ready.

  10. Only receive messages from people who’s profile matches your search checked boxes

    When I use premium to write the type of person that I search for, only people who’s search checked boxes match 6 out of 10 if my search can message me . To avoid continuous blocking of people who don’t read profiles before messaging.

  12. Add a filter option for drug use

    Adding a filter option for drug use would make it easier for those who are not drug users to connect with other non users.

  13. Preferred Meeting Place

    Have the option to post preferred meeting place.
    - My Place
    - Your Place
    - Meet in Public
    - Car

    Allow users to edit their settings to show guys that have the preferred meeting place. This way guys who prefer to meet in public first can find other guys who also prefer to meet in public, guys who are looking to host can look for guys looking to travel and vice versa.

  15. You need to offer an option to hide completely.

    It's insane that we can't disable and hide our profiles temporarily (like we can on Scruff). In order to hide my Grindr profile from my colleagues and college students at work, I have to COMPLETELY delete my entire profile before class, then after, completely re-join and rebuild my profile, re-write everything, re-attach my pictures, etc. That's stupid. You're losing customers because of it, and you need to fix that immediately.

  16. Add a sober/clean choice to a new drug use profile setting

    For those of us who aren't interested in *** with people who are high and drunk, or who want to indicate we're sober /clean, add a profile setting for substance use that allows multiple choices: drugs and alcohol, alcohol only, and neither drugs or alcohol. It should also be possible for you to say whether you care about your partners choices, or perhaps, just allow access to search based on their answers. Ideally the former.

  17. Allow users to make notations on profiles in their favorites.

    So many profiles are landscapes or blank the ability to make notations in your favorites would allow better tracking of profiles.

  18. Getting UNBANNED must be faster - via live chat support or a 'second chance' feature

    Hi all,

    I just got banned while talking to a mate on Grindr. Out of the blue. No warning, no explanation, no nothing. This is all but ridiculous!
    I've been using the app for, I don't remember how long now - 6+ years maybe, as it's still not possible to check account creation date despite my feedback to Grindr on the subject months ago - and their system banned me in an instant as if I was using fake ID, advertising, selling, you name it bannable misconduct. Obviously, none of these apply. Yet no first or second warning, nothing at…

  19. Link Spotify account

    It'd be nice to hear what others like, and to discover new music.

  20. Replace “Tribes”

    The “Tribes” is confusing. Some people use to define themselves and others to define what they are looking for. Can you make it clearer?
