  1. bring back filtering by race/ethnicity

    Hi. I think you're making a big mistake by eliminating the ability to screen by ethnicity. I suppose you mean well, but the reality is that most POCs use that screen to eliminate the possibility of the very racist abuse that your company says it's necessary to remove the filter to avoid. White South Africans are *very" racist, and if you live in a border racial residential area, you will get far more nonblack people than black people. You're basically exposing us to the potential for racist abuse by doing something that you think should result in the opposite. Did…

  5. Add country location. For those living near a border, would be nice to restrict search to specific country

    I live in Toronto but when I search I often get profiles from the USA where one may not be interested. Would be great to add country in search criteria

  7. Allow ALL users to filter by ethnicity. I do not want to date or meet certain ethnic groups.

    Allow users to filter their feed by ethnicity for free. For instance, I do not want to date/meet black guys. In a country that is predominantly black, this app is mostly a waste of time for people that do not want to engage with another ethnicity for the reason they've joined the app.

  8. Filter by Gender

    I saw only a handful of topics covering this. Most not brought to the forefront and maybe it's not a problem for some but it is to me.

    Grindr was developed and pushed as the everything gay app. You want to hook up, you go here. You want to find a LTR, you go here. But it's been a while since they pushed the update for women and trans to open their doors to more users. I have no problem with trans or women. I just don't like **. I like .

    I'm probably not the only free user out…

  11. Ethnicity filter

    I paid for extra and used it to find others like me. I’m Asian living among non-Asians. I feel lonely and can’t find others like me. And now you’ve removed the feature that caused me to PAY for a subscription

    some guys just don’t like being tapped. Can you provide a feature to enable these guys to switch off tapping on their profile?

  17. Better picture approval process to allow hips to not be too risqué

    Allowing pictures with shorts that don’t have to be pulled high waisted to cover hip bones in order to be deemed appropriate.

  18. Allow users to search for people who’s interested in their ethnicity.

    If am Asian black white or whatever. I want to be able to search for people who’s in to my ethnicity. This Is not racist it just makes it more easy to find people for a possible match.

  19. Block taps

    Please make a way to block taps. There are so many automated bots from fake offline profiles each day, that blocking taps would be beneficial.

  20. Landscape

    Landscape mode as an option in the apps settings or just a general feature of the app that it does. Having the 12.9 iPad while using Grindr requires my lap backside the iPad is too big to hold. If you have an iPad app then it should have landscape mode. Maybe you’ve got something against it but we don’t. Don’t put your bias on us.
