  1. 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.

  3. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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!

  10. 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!

  11. Multiple profiles

    I have a normal profile on Grindr, with a clear facepic, and a vanilla text. But, i do have some fetisjes that i do not want to include in my vanilla profile. It would be nice if i can have more then 1 profile, so I could swap to my kinky profile if i'm looking for more kinky dates and swap back if i'm just looking for 'normal' dates. This could be a function people would pay for. Now i just and old phone for my kinky profile. Why not make it more easy for me and earn some money?

  12. I would like to remove my location whenever i send my location to guys

    Basically there were few guys whenever i send my location to them and they just suddenly blocked me and it worried me. Like I thought they may break into my place and it scares me so i would like to take my location down whenever i send one. I just take it down and also i wanna take my pics down whenever i send one. That would be nice to remove location or pics from a chat.

  15. Filter for Visitors

    Have a Filter for Visitors in Your Area, so you can easily find who’s visiting your area. You could also mark yourself as a visitor when you are visiting an area, so that Grindr guys can find you through the Visitor filter.

  16. Make relationship status a required profile field

    But let the user choose whether they want to show or hide it on their profile, just like age.

  17. 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.

  19. Undeliver messages

    Please allow us to undeliver messages/pics. You can let the recipient know that a message/pic was retracted by leaving a red or gray notification in its place.

  20. 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.
