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

Scruff offers exponentially more room. I have a lot that I’d like to say, and I have to use my saved phrases for each person. Just takes a lot of extra time, less personalization up front. My profile should be able to portray anything I wish. Perhaps a feature exclusively for XTRA/Unlimited?
Inquiring minds wanna know
Ooral passive, aggressive, both
Dick: size option
Omg stick a fork in it and bring back the proper search queries for race. Thank you
If a paid member(me) wants to look for what turns him on and it is not available, why would you continue to pay for substandard search queries
Just Because someone isn’t attracted to you doesn’t make them a racist! Seriously when did everyone turn into such emotional weaklings people need just accept we are all different and like different things. Because you arent into something does not mean you dislike it.

My beautiful Community!
I know how to settle all of our issues with "searching" on Grindr in one easy fix.
I've read a bunch of different request tonight for all types of ideas.
Quite a few of you are not happy the Trans Tribe is here. IE: men only want a TS, Gay man has to block.
A slew want the ethnicity filter back.
Well, I'm Trans and I'm not a Escort. One day I want romance, movie night, or other times, I could "out Kink" / "out Dirty" a lot of you. Lol. It's the mood right? It's the connection and the attraction right? Or whatever wonderful thing gets you going. Sometimes I want good ol Americans *(any color thank you 😊)* sometimes I want something European.
So how do we fix this?
A new tab on our profiles. NOT A search ...it's... let's say a "DESIRE" tab.
It's a TAB we fill in for our "true hearts DESIRE". Must have everything Grindr has in their minds or is already here. But we can fill in their ethnicity, because it's OUR "DESIRE". As I said, I'm TRANS and I'm a Gemini. I'm already 2 batshit crazy people to start with, then you add in my Trans...well they need a button for just batshit crazy. But I digress, I would love to be able to just see only the men into batshit-crazy Trans. Or Trans with red hair. Trans in a tree LOL ETC.
The Tribes buttons are ok, but when I see a dude I might like ...he's in the DADDY tribe and TRANS. I'll be honest, it's confusing when I discover he's 5 inches shorter than me and looks like my kid at home. Hunty I ain't calling you Daddy.
Do you get my point? If we can fill in our "DESIRE" tab then Grindr gives us 10-15 profiles what have you, like it does now. (The rest are all under the paid. ) Well you know hey that's 10 or 15 more chances of getting exactly what WE want. LOVE for those who are single or need a third for life? Who knows. I mean might really take care of the romance and the dirty filthy behind the dumpster good times at the same time. hahaha.
Obviously, "DESIRE" tab has to be changeable and searchable across the platform.
For it to truly be awesome it should have everything you can think of MYERS Briggs code to do you live with your a Granny. FEET, Trees, small stuffed animals...cotton candy. Lol I'm just saying anything YOU LIKE, it should be there and be selectable. Or if it's NOT, have an empty space for a few tag words. Help it search even better.
BUT THE MOST important PART Grindr my love, don't make every single radio button or question a requirement to be answered.
In other words, I should be able to select Brazilian mocha caramel skin 10in Top and I know I can at least fine three or four folks to come on "popping" up for me to holla at.
Do ranges like other apps do 5'1 to 6'9 height. Tattoos yes or no. Earrings yes or no. Musk y or n etc.
Hello my Chubs my beautiful beautiful Chubs. I've seen several - several of you complaining no Chub Chaser section.
I really want TS Admirer section *(only because TS Chaser sounds like harassment to me lol). Grinders not going to let us have it because that is something Escorts use. (TSGirl, my sistas get your money boo. No judgment here....but this App ain't my shit. ) To me, my idea covers it all, I think.
If you're still reading by now (I'm sure you stopped long ago) but if any of you are reading this I just wanted to add one more thing on a PERSONAL NOTE about Grindr. Discovered Ginder allowed Trans to the platform almost 5 years ago.
I know a lot of you are unhappy with it.
I would like to say it's not easy going to a Straight Bar and pick up a Straight dude and then tell him, by the way when we get home you got to bend ova take it in the ass! Lol... it's really complicated a lot more than you would ever imagine. *( yes not your issue) but if you happen to be a batshit crazy Trans Top with problematic interrogations are must-do of the man and then all of the information I must give him and etcetera and etcetera...THEN please moving forward; know in your heart you're doing us a blessing. You get to order your dick's on the app like you're ordering a pizza. Yummy. Now, I get to order my ass on the app like I'm ordering a facial at the spa. He he he he he.
But I'll take the PizzaDick too. Greedy huh? Ha!
Much love to you all my brothers and sisters and those who have yet to decide. How PROUD I am of our wonderful community LGBTQ.
Much love, xoxo be safe!

There should be a filter that allows you to view people who have their social media linked (Insta, Twitter, etc).

The weight or mass option causes more psychological damage to queer people of a certain body weight...it sends a message to them that they must be of a certain weight to fit in or that grindr is for people of a certain weight, we as the lgbt know exactly what discrimination feels like so it would be hypocrisy for us to do the same on others.
Michael Lee commented
I know you are trying to keep the app clean and simple, but clearly a lot of people are having a hard time fully expressing themselves in their bios due to the limited number of characters allowed. I'm not suggesting the room to write a novel but more space would be helpful. Also, you REALLY overcharge for your paid services.
Pierre Delacruz commented
I'm gouine, I'd really like to have a gouine/gouinage option, to filter people who also fit that, and not just top or bottom.

Please add more profile in basic subscription.The basic subscription only has blank profile.Also can you release the distance filter,So we can filter at certain distance and please verify user so we know who is just want play around and who is serious
Manny Sukdeep Clinton commented
Let's be frank here, almost nobody is putting their "name" in the username field. It's definitely true for the Near East/ Persian Gulf Arab countries and the middle East/ Central and South Asia, where the bulk of users tend to be discreet or shy.
So I've been thinking of and trying out so many funny catch lines/ pickup lines/ punchlines to put in my username instead. For eg: N🍑ughty4punixhmen🍌
But most of them just won't go through because of the stupid character limits. May be, it's time for Grindr to reconsider the no of charactersz that show in the filtered feed along with DPs. It's limiting budding amateur comedians like myself, from expressing more, from finding more dates and the one best mate, and from drawing more attention to who we areas persons.
PERSONALITY LASTS a lifetime and BEAUTY FADES with time.

To make it convinient of what we are looking for.
GayF*ck.org, etc. messages need to stop. No one puts domains in their profile name. Either disallow them or permit users block them in Settings.
A rules based approach would be pie in the sky.
Lotus Unihorn commented
Not enough blog text, no option for sexuality bi straight gay, i think females should be allowed, you cannot have specific age range look at you, you cannot prevent unwant pics have a no pics from everyone option and if someone sends pic you can decide if you want to see it please make the site use i am not a robot, sign in then no spam robots. Make it easier to search for tag age arrange sexuality and gender in a search option section, distance should always be shown, have option not to see, or get profiles with out pics, make the profiles photo verified option
Instead of a filter weeding out those who are +u, add a filter in the search (like a on/off type) of “u=u hookup friendly”
If I already viewed that person and didn’t chat we should be able to filter them out. There are lots of blank profiles and if I already viewed that profile and our preferences don’t match I shouldn’t have to click on them again to learn I already clicked on them.
