  1. Badge and Filter for Visitors

    When we're traveling away from our home city, an icon like a small plane should appear in our profile thumbnail that indicates we're a visitor. (Members should also be able to manually mark themselves as a Visitor—especially if they don't have their home city specified for Grindr to mark them automatically.) To reduce any privacy/security concerns, users can disable the automatic indicator if they choose.
    We should also be able to filter for Visitors. It would increase connections x1000 and help us find better matches depending on whatever we're looking for at the moment.

  2. Profile Reciprocity - users should only get to see and filter by the profile fields they've included in their own profile

    Unless located in a country with anti-gay legislation, members with unspecified fields on their profile should not get to see or filter by those fields on other profiles. This would encourage members to fully complete their profile, in a way that supports their privacy and discretion without a mandate. It would also inspire a much-needed culture of fair play and non-discrimination on the app.
    Something like this needs to be done to help put an end to incomplete and blank profiles. With more detailed profiles available in the community, members would enjoy easier browsing, more effective filtering, and overall better…

  4. Distance Reciprocity - users should only get to see other users’ distance if they are showing their own

    Unless located in a country with anti-gay legislation, users hiding their distance should not get to see distance on other profiles. This would inspire a much-needed culture of fair play and reciprocity on the app, while also incentivizing members to stop hiding and stop wasting people’s time. (Not to mention that with distance shown on more profiles, browsing would be easier and the overall user experience would improve.)

  5. Know how many active users have you favorited

    We should see how many active users (online within the past week) have us favorited. We should also have the option to display this number on our public profile if we choose. You can call them followers ☺

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

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

  7. “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.)

  8. Switch profiles

    I have a "normal" profile on Grindr, with a clear face pic and a vanilla text. But I do have some fetishes, which I'm hesitant to include in my vanilla profile. So, it'd be nice if I could have more than one profile, so I could switch to my kinky profile when I'm looking for more kinky dates and then switch back to my vanilla profile when I'm just looking for "normal" dates. Currently, I use a spare phone to switch to my kinky profile. But this could even be a premium feature. Switching personas. Lots of people play different…

  9. Create a section for those who are looking for love, dating, and romance. Not just hooking up!

    Create a section for men who want to date and hang out without the immediate hook up expectation!

  10. Share cruising areas info

    If you add section where people can share cruising areas in the world would be great. For people XTRA/Unlimited should be for free this info. People who are exhibitionists like me we need info about places where we can have safe fun and we can be more free. Other gay apps have same section and it's really cool. I don't want to pay double for Grindr and for other app as well...

  12. Historical chat reference/metrics

    It would be a really neat idea to set up an algorithm that essentially records the metrics associated with chatting. These metrics could be displayed offering average chat time time, age group that a person is geared toward, the type of tribe they find most activity chatting with etc. you could even have an option that allows you to identify if a connection has been established between you and a user (of course anonymously) but a connection count that would be indicated on the number of people met, etc. cuts through the ******** as to whether or not a person…

  13. Ability to select 2 ethnicities

    Because Middle Easterners can be classified as White, Latinos can be White or Black, and those who are Mixed will be able to specify.

  14. Incentivize members to fill out their entire profile

    Give members incentives for completing each field on their profile. One option is to reward members with 10% more guys on their cascade per field completed. (First-time users who have not yet created a profile, for example, will unlock more and more profiles on their local grid the more they fill in their profile. Once all fields have been specified, all locked profiles on their cascade will be unlocked.) This is a standard feature enacted by numerous online social and dating services. Having mechanisms in place that encourage members to fill out their full profile will help put an end…

  15. Leave last tapped

    When I tap another user, please leave a note on their account or some other way to identify if I’ve ever tapped them before.

  16. 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

  17. Categories

    Able to go between guys wanting to date and find something more and a section for guys who just want to hookup. I mean know *** is the world's focus now but some people still want a relationship.

  19. Have free social grouping/classification

    Just like we have physical appearance grouping, we should have social grouping. Gamers, theater geeks, sports fans, anime fans, etc. It being a free option would also be amazing. And you should be able to pick more than one group.

  20. Return of the distance information in grid view

    I really miss the distance measurement that’s been removed from the grid view.

    It was visible when scrolling down the “Nearby”grid. It was where the “Fresh” tab is placed now. Having it back would be helpful.

    Grindr Support said I should post here and see if you agree.

    Let me know. Thanks.
