  1. List what types you're after e.g. Chub or chaser etc

    As a chub myself I would like to know that the guy is ok with a chub before I bother them. Same I'd like them to know I am a chub but interested in thinker chasers

  4. Eliminate fake profiles stop people from recreating profile with fake or copying pics.(maybe you can run machine learning to identify

    Eliminate fake profiles stop people from recreating profile with fake or copying pics.
    (1. maybe you can run machine learning to identify and compare pics with every pic out there in every profile.
    2. If you find similar pics run a human level check. 3. If they are same again issue notices to those profiles to submit and verify identity.
    4. Close fake profile)

  5. Create a request for Profile Pic button

    Allow all users to submit a “verified” profile pic. You can choose to have your profile pic verified or not. Only verified profiles will have “Request verified Pic button” (the button can be greyed out/ inactive until verification). You can hide your profile pic but only users with a verified pic can request AND when a request is approved rhe other user is automatically given acces to the others verified pic. At least ability to open once before being able to revoke access. Allow Xtra users to have multiple Profile photos with a “Lock/ Unlock” feature similiar to Adam4Adam. One…

  7. I.D. Verification

    As with most dating/hook-up apps there is an option to make your account and the photo you have uploaded to be verified.

    I strongly campaign for Grindr to have this feature in place as this would help users alike to know if the person they are conversating with are actually real.

    This feature would stop users from ideally being catfished by whomever wishes to use a fake photograph.

    This feature is also a great safety hazard in the event of a user being asked to ‘meet up’ or ‘have fun’ and then meeting up with someone whom is portentally dangerous…

  8. Is grindr for gay guys looking for other gay guys???

    Grindr is a gay guys looking for gay guys correct? I'm all about inclusivity but I'm really getting tired of seeing of all the women on here. I mean if that's allowed why don't I see lesbians on here too?

  11. “Looking Now” and “Hosting Now” icons

    It would be helpful to have a simple toggle that can be turned on or off if you're actively looking for “right now,” as well as an icon like a little house that indicates you can host and a walking character icon if you cannot. Turning the feature “on” could either highlight your profile in the cascade or add a symbol like a flame next to your display name.
    (Some profiles say they are “Looking For: Right Now” in their profile but may not actually mean it, so this would help with that.)

  12. Ability to report a profile and not just block it

    Have encountered some racist and abusive profiles.
    We should be able to report such profiles, so that they can be taken down if there are multiple complaints about the same profile.

  13. More sophisticated profile

    Even if it’s a hookup, most times you are going to want something to talk about before you unzip. Profiles are always loaded with user’s ridiculously rules, qualifications and expectations. Having a place to connect with someone on the basis of sports, education, jobs, interest would be a plus

  14. ****** Preference: BB or Safe *** filter

    Most gays these days seem to only want BB or breeding, for the handful of us who like safe **, this should be a filter available. If people opt for BB **, a recommendation should pop up to ensure they are HIV tested and on Prep/PEP. It is incredibly useful and provides education

  16. Position preference

    ****** position preference requirement. Eliminates wasted time searching for tops when there are other's that come up in the search with no position and they are a bottom too.

  17. Don’t delete pictures when you uninstall app

    Instead of going and deleting pictures when we uninstall the app let the pictures stay on the app so you don’t have to keep taking new pictures.

  18. Longer profile text, couple more profile pictures.

    ten times more characters as a limit for profile text... now it is ridiculously short and it makes people sound ridiculous by overusing ridiculous phrases and emoticons all over... everyone looks the same, no space for personal touch.
