      • 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.

          • 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.

            • Education: none, vocational, public, private, elite, doctorate

              Add a profile field for education, and let users filter by it.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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

                    • 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.

                          • 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.

                                • Stop automatic refreshing

                                  Sometimes when I return to the thumbnail feed after viewing a profile or using another app, I see a guy that I want to message, but then the feed automatically refreshes and the guy disappears :( Sometimes, if I am lucky I can find him again after searching carefully, but most of the time he is completely lost. This has caused me SO much frustration. PLEASE end this!
                                  (A possible alternative to automatic refreshing would be to make a 'refresh' icon hover at the top of the feed/screen when it comes time to refresh, but allow us USERS to click…

                                  • 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!
