  1. Improve the reliability of the “Looking For” filter

    As an XTRA subscriber who's not into internet hookups, I filter my cascade for profiles looking for "Friends, Dates, + Relationships." However, profiles looking for "Friends, Right Now, and Chat" will still pop up (for example), and, upon further inspection, it becomes clear that these profiles are only interested in "Right Now," which renders the filter useless. To fix this, please integrate a toggle for a search modifier of “ONLY” into the filter, so that our searches generate more reliable results that better reflect the matches we are looking for.

    Example:
    When selecting "Friends, Dates, + Relationships" in the “Looking…

  4. A “looking for right now” icon

    If you are looking for “right now” an additional icon will show on your profile, you can turn it on and off depending on if you are looking for right now, instead of just saying right now and not meaning it

  6. Go offline when closing the app

    When closing the app, the profile tends to remain online for a while.
    People think that one is rude for not answering when in reality you are not online.

  7. Fix the "message not sent" glitch

    No new feature, just fix your bug that causes messages to pop up repeatedly as "message not sent". It's especially problematic because sometimes the message actually has sent.

  8. Let guys find generous men

    We need to help our less fortunate gay brothers survive, instead of directing more hate their way.

  11. Make ethnicity a required profile field

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

  12. Reorganize our blocked list as a table arranged by month

    Seeing it currently as a list is not useful for us users who block frequently (to curate our feeds) and need to unblock somebody. A table would be much more efficient and user-friendly.

  13. Let me control who can see me

    Some users might not want to interact with profiles with certain parameters. For example, maybe a University professor doesn't want to be seen by anyone under 21 so they can avoid their students. Or maybe someone looking for strictly friends only doesn't want to be seen by anyone who isn't also looking for new friends. With this kind of control over who can see you, users can avoid unwanted contact with other users.

  15. Search by display name

    This would be a useful filter in general, but especially useful for those who want to reconnect with somebody they chatted with previously but lost track of.

  16. Enable us to filter out the people we've messaged before

    Let us filter out anyone we've chatted with in the past day, past week, past month, past two months, all time, etc (let us choose the time period). This will help us especially avoid the profiles who never responded to us, so we can see/connect with only new people.

  17. A way to filter out people I’ve chatted with recently,

    Like the current feature which filters out people I’ve chatted with in the last day, I’d like to have more time periods. Like, filter out anyone I’ve chatted with in the last week, or month. Or show only people I’ve never chatted with.

  18. Fix loading of messages when scrolling through inbox

    When scrolling through messages, the thumbnails just repeat over and over. PLEASE fix this so messages appear with the right profile
