  2. Insight feature

    Enable us to see reply rates, as well as the age/height/weight ranges, ethnicities, body types, positions, and tribes that a profile replies to most. Being able to search/filter by these user preferences would be great too.

  4. Destigmatize "working" boys, and give daddies the option of selecting generous or not in their profiles

    Gay men in the US and around the world have been disenfranchised at varying degrees due to homophobia and other social injustices. Many gay men (especially youth) are struggling to survive and/or may be at constant risk of homelessness. Stop shaming the guys who seek "gen" men, and start facilitating connections between guys who need help and guys who CAN help. After all, NO man is an island, and ALL relationships are essentially an exchange of personal resources, in one way or another.

  5. Option to hide profiles instead of just block

    This would be useful for those of us who curate our feeds currently by blocking the profiles we find unattractive, because, now, our blocked list is dominated by those 'unattractive' profiles, making it difficult to sift through and find someone we want to unblock for more 'special' reasons, like an old friend or lover. Enabling us to hide the unattractive profiles instead of just blocking them will leave the block feature to be used for more serious reasons and de-clutter our blocked list. Thank you

  6. Education: none, vocational, public, private, elite, doctorate

  7. Add a profile field for p*nis size

    Allow users to select p*nis length in inches or cm (or by small, average, or large), and p*nis girth by thin, average, or thick. Perhaps even include a selection for cut or uncut. Give users the ability to filter by this criteria, and that would make Grindr 1000x more fun.

  8. NPNC

    Are you sick and tired of replying to faceless profiles to ask for face pic despite having indicated NPNC in your intro? With NPNC feature turned on, only profiles with face pic will be able start a chat with you. Faceless profiles will not be able to send you any text messages until he sends you a face pic to start the chat.

  10. Show us guys from more than just the past hour

    Give us the option to see the past two hours, the past four hours, the past eight hours, the past day, the past two days, three days, etc. It would make the app a million times more amazing.

  11. Special icon for users who are 'visiting'

    Enable users to select a "visiting" status if they are traveling/visiting a new city, so that a special icon (e.g., a plane) will display in the corner of their profile thumbnail and their city/state/country of origin will appear in their profile.

  12. Mark as unread

    Sometimes we receive messages, we read it and we’re not able to reply immediately, the messages are marked as read and then they get lost when we receive new messages from others users and we forget. It would be great a feature “mark as unread” so we can get back to them later filtering unread messages.

  13. Get more gay men on Grindr

    Lessen the hookup nature of the app, so that more non-h0rny, quality gay men join the app for friends and dates. Sponsor events in major cities. Hire ambassadors (college students, bartenders, young people, etc) to promote the Grindr brand. Hand out free Grindr merchandise/apparel at gay bars and Pride events. Advertise in local gay publications and social media. Let's get more gay singles on Grindr!

  17. Make Grindr a better space for professional networking

    Allow users to select their industry of employment from a list, and/or give users a field to write their occupation. Put professionals in some of your marketing campaigns. Highlight gay-friendly local companies/workplaces. Let's promote gainful employment in the gay community!

  19. Give users the ability to see other users' reply rates and personal preferences

    Please enable us to see every profile's overall reply rate, as well as the age/height/weight ranges, ethnicities, body types, positions, and tribes that they reply to most. This is a great way to gauge each other's preferences, and would make Grindr 10000x more fun.
