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
Use the “accepts NSFW” preference as a filter for receiving such photos. When a user attempts to send an NSFW photo to someone who has their preference set as “never” or “not at first,” display a warning.
E.g. “this user does not accept NSFW photos.”
Since a filter could not realistically catch every photo, display a message for the photos that make it through.
E.g. “NSFW could not be determined. Would you like to receive this photo?”

For the millions of people who live along the closed, and occasionally barely open, US/Canada border, people on the other side might as well be in Antarctica. Yet these absolutely inaccessible guys frustrate our screens as look-but-never-will-be-able-to-touch eye candy. A "This Country Only" one-button filter would make meeting realistically meet-able guys far easier and the Grindr experience far more enjoyable. Not only for us but for any other Grinders (is that what we call ourselves? Lol) located at or near a difficult international border. Thank you.

The term latino encompasses so many people from Mexicans to Brazilians to Chileans, etc, that I believe it has a richness as of itself. There are not enough ways to cluster and identity cultures and people on Grindr via community of descendency.

Silly. Adults have the right to sleep with whom they choose. It's sex. Sex is based off of physical attraction. Some people care about body type and others don't. Some prefer larger types. Just get over yourself and realize what the app is for. Taking away functionality and filters is stupid.
Filipe Vieira commented
Races are constructs but complexion/melatonin isn’t. For those attracted to different skin tones, a filter should be included
Simply, a Complexion Filter for Dark, Moderate, Light, and perhaps Other if not listed

Give us like unlimited space to put our description. Why the limitations? Doesn't make any sense...
Seriously it’s appalling. Or add more profile questions so I can put the info thats in my description somewhere else.
The subscription price is insane and you have so many ads. You’re clearly making a lot of money from this business (thanks to your users). You definitely can afford to upgrade your hosting to be able to have to 3 more megabyte of storage used by each use on your database.
Other apps all do this already and they charge much less
This is the best way I can describe it and it encompasses a few other suggestions that I've seen. You need to focus on filtering. Today's age we have a lot of people who are willing to meet and fuck anyone, but just as many who are highly selective. It's a person with borderline personality and Asperger's I am very particular. I want the ability to be off of people's radar who are not in my wheelhouse. I don't want people who appear older than me and I don't want anybody who I'm not attracted to in terms of ethnicity. And yet I am hammered by messages 90% of which I do not have any interest in speaking to but I cannot help but feel obligated to be polite and make sure that they all are aware that I'm just flat out not interested because I don't think it's right for a person to just immediately block or ignore messages. So I would like to see that happen because there's a lot of people that I've even messaged that have blocked me immediately. That doesn't really bode well for my mental health now I understand that I am very very unique and that's not necessarily a good thing but I would like to see these things implemented. Yeah it's going to cut down on a lot of traffic, but you'll also see a rise as well and your numbers of people using and purchasing the app will level out at what their true number should be. And it may be a little bit lower than you think at least in some areas but you would definitely gain a more consistent set of people eilling to pay. Recently I've gotten up to as much as 500 people checking out my profile. I saw that counter reach 500 I was maybe interested in 20..... MAYBE. We were particular are usually often particular to the nth degree. I myself require somebody within 3 years of older and also 21 at least, and at the very least I require that they are well groomed and don't look scraggly. So it would be nice to have something like an option for body hair and all the different variations, age should be absolutely a hard filter, as in nobody contacts you or you don't see anybody who is outside your range, the tribes that's just a joke. It can't be both ways when you're putting in tribes meaning if I put in gaymer that doesn't mean that I am a gaymer. If I put in trans as I am technically... Begrudgingly technically, then I don't want anybody who is just looking for trans to be able to find me. In other words have tribes be "your people" and an "interested in" subsection of tribes. Whether or not we click the box is on us, it's not on Grindr if you make it too specific because all we have to do is not click that box. So anybody who complains about that is just an idiot. "You're making it too specific" that's just dumb OR the sign of the people who are not really here to actually use your app for what it's for. To meet. And far too many fake people with the ability to not post a picture.
Speaking of which I'll come to my final point you're pretty good at filtering naughty photos... Why? This is an 18 and over app, why not just give us the option to filter? Seems like it would make more sense if we were to have specific interests in this app therefore would attract specific people. I for instance am interested in hooking up only, I'm not attracted to guys I'm only attracted to their tools, therefore I don't want to have people engaging in conversation eventually asking for pictures that have no intention of meeting. Again this speaks to my mental illness but I don't care I want that ability to choose that. And I guarantee you would have a lot less feature requests a lot less support requests a lot less complaints and far far fewer indications of harassment because of the "sensitive" people or as I call them antagonists, that reside within the lgbtq community. Shit starters. So all that to say you need to give us the option to do our own filtering and give us specific filtering options. Now I know that's not hard not for somebody who writes apps. I'm sure any one of your people could do this in a day with one day of commitment. This isn't something that should take a few months this isn't something that should take a few weeks it should take days... Tops... Giggity. I've seen all these feature requests for a long time already. I don't want this sitting at the bottom of a list not getting touched. And I'm particular to this app specifically because I like to have limited means so I don't get thousands of messages instead. Capiche?
Too many Anti Vaccination people on here being irresponsible in trying to meet other men.
There should be a vaxed or not question and filter.
And the ability to upload their vaccination record if requested.

It’s confusing when using these filters. Confusing when filtering. When I read my place, I get confused. Could be changed to looking for host, looking to travel, to make things clearer .
Patrick Visschers commented
I think the meet at catagory in the profile should have a custom box where you can fill in where'd you like to meet for example a park or the library there are many places one could go to meet safely and the 5 options that are there do not cover the possibilities
Vincent Belo commented
Filter to show profiles that are two or more men. Sometimes you are looking for a group or for a simple double penitation, this would help with that.
Fleck Dujarie commented
I live in a town where the demographic is almost exclusively filled with bottoms. i have no reason to use this app because i can not search for tops on my own, as i am very poor. This feature alone would give me reason to open the app again. please let us use this feature. i opened my app today so i could make this specific request.
Wrong. I'm not a "business" I'm a human being it's my HUMAN RIGHT to decide the ethnicity (if I want to) of who I'm going to have a romance with on grindr as everywhere else. This is a DATING app. The PURPOSE of this app is to find a MATCH. Some people are particularly fond of people of some ethnic groups (theirs or others), this is normal, natural, legal, it's not racist and it's not a fetish. Therefore those users should have total control of the ethnicities shown in their grid because that's the PURPOSE of the application. Amazing how you pretend to fight discrimination while discriminating user sexual preferences.
Lucas Harper commented
I think it’d make it a lot easier for me to find someone and or get seen, if you add a “exploring sexuality” category.
Taai Taimo commented
255 characters is way too little... 400 at least
Tori Zenon commented
hello I think a filter for hair would be good as there are more and more longhaired guys, and for whom like them it would be very helpfull to be able to find them with a filter for hair size, like bald,shaved,cut, medium and long
I don’t have enough text available to fully describe myself and what I’m looking for. Please increase the limit!
I think you mean Side. 100% agree.
PLEASE add more then 255 characters in profile description. If PlanetRomeo can, you can too (you're both free platforms so no excuses!)
Add at least 1000 characters, PLEASE! Thank you!
