This will allow users to see only who they are interested in and would prevent those they do not wish to be viewed by from seeing them. This would also mitigate hostile communication between different groups of people. This would allow users to tailor Grindr for their own intended use and would offer grinder a much broader demographic with which to do business. The argument that grinder is a "gay man's app" is moot, in that, a majority of the other dating sites out there were alienating the LGBT crowd and created a need for sites like Grindr's original model. Now, things have changed and more sites are respecting and including people of all walks of life. Grinder should do the same. Include everyone and Grindr will reap a greater benefit. I would think a group that has been ostracized and discriminated against for so long would be unconditionally accepting and tolerant of anyone who wants to be counted among them. I can see how str8 cis users who are LGBTQ allies would prefer to find each other on Grindr, rather than exclusionist sites. Great minds think alike and LGBTQs need all the allies we can get. I say roll out the red carpet for all walks of life and make it so each user can create their own environment inside Grindr. Further, not everyone only uses grinder for hookups. I can't tell how many profiles I have read were people State specifically that they are not looking for hookups. That would be another feature request.
Love you guys and gals!
But it exists already; it’s called filter! In the tribes, select all but trans!
As for the straight men, don’t text them. They CLEARLY mention “no men” or “girls only” in their profile!
Blank profiles?! Well… you can also filter those with “no photos”.
I hope it helps!!!
Yes!! We should be able to hide our profile from certain groups or empty profiles without having to be hidden/incognito.
The fact that I’m stumbling onto multiple “straight men” and “trans woman” profiles is troubling and upsetting. I’ve had straight men tell me they are not interested in “faggots”.
Are you kidding me. THIS MUST BE ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY! I’m not saying to remove them from the app. But there should be a filter ability for me to:
1. Hide straight men and trans woman from my grad
2. PREVENT THESE GROUPS FROM SEEING MY PROFILE.
I have multiple trans woman sending me NSFW pics pre/post constructive surgery, begging to hook up. I do not feel comfortable on the app anymore.
This is also why I’m always on incognito.
P.S: I’d also like to prevent BLANK profiles from seeing my on the grid whilst I go online.
Until these above options/features are implemented, I will never go online (and will continue to be incognito), which leads me to miss out on potential connections with GAY MEN!
Other dating apps' implementations are okay enough. You can set a gender but, for example, depending on your sexuality, also have a toggle for "don't show me to x" where x is the opposite gender presentation if your sexuality is queer/gay/lesbian.
most of the hetero females are just looking for their DL boyfriends/husbands on Grindr which kinda takes away from the Grindr users that wish to participate as "DISCREET". It should not be available for cis females in my opinion for this very reason!! Allow the men that keep Grindr going be able to be themselves on Grindr rather than being too afraid to post pics because, for many, they are worried their other (female)
halves, may be on here stalking them. How are curious guys supposed to loose that fear and find out who they are with Cis females allowed to join??
Except that many of them are not there to make friends. I get a “hey handsome” message from a cis straight woman at least once a week. Make Grindr gay again!

It would be great if you could include Ethnicity, Gender and Pronouns in the search/filter options. Also a way to prevent profiles from showing in search that I would prefer not to see again without blocking the person.

This is a hookup/dating app first. When it was only for men this wouldn't have been needed as much as trans men and cis-men that like men were 99% of the user base.
I am sick of seeing women I'm not looking for them.
What's worse is the "str8" men that come on here looking for women trans women. I don't want to see or talk to them they are also extremely rude and generally don't actually understand lgbt terminology...
Str8 doesn't even mean straight, it's a gay man who is masculine acting or appears straight.
They also tend to put things like only prefer trans in their profile yet what they really mean is passable trans women only. It allows a ton of discrimination. So they exclude trans men, gender non-conforming etc anyone who isn't actually passable as a woman. They are extremely rude to anyone that isn't a passable woman and no one should have to deal with that.
Allow us to put looking for men, women and trans in our profiles would solve this. Then I could just sort out those people only looking for men and sort out anyone who doesn't identify as male and/or have male genitals. I'm not going to be rude to any trans women on here purposely but I don't want to see them. I'm not looking for them... As for trans men I don't mind but there may be some who aren't looking for them either.
I agree, I think the solution would be for them to create a better straight version than Blendr. Tinder has been on the market big because no one comes closer. Grindr is big for gays because of the anonymous options. Put this same style of app to straight market and boom.
As most would say, this is a gay app. I’d argue that a lot of straight people use this app because there is nothing like it that works so well. There is a woman option, we should be able to search for specific gender for free. Depending on the area is how limited the result would be but it’s not easy to find that specific gender in a sea of random nearby people. Also, I know blendr is like the straight version of grindr, but it’s not close to equally effective. There should be the same level of anonymous capabilities and security. Again, Grindr is one of a kind, having apps that meet everyone need the same way would make you be killing the game, and more money.
Don't even have a filter for that, if did it would be premium, so who's going to pay for it you? @Kori Alvarez ?
And exactly they are woman with a fanny and tits they are not supposed to be here.
Nothing personal with woman or trans women but in fully homo and just the thought of fanny makes me sick hence why on a gay app for gay MEN!
Kori Alvarez commented
Use your filter and stop blaming women on taking your gay men. That sounds wild, not the greatest request I've seen.
Why not, where else would she go to meet gay men. It does not have to be sexual to be friends. Maybe she is turned on by sex between men and may want to join. I am ok with that.
Filter would work
New filter needed to satisfy the diversity that currently exists on the app. Although a traditional app for gay men, Grindr developers have recently targeted all gender identities in their advertising, yet give us no way to choose which ones will appear on our grid. Don't lump us all on the same grid without our own gender preferences being considered.
Literally I was thinking “I don’t remember writing this but clearly these are my words”

Cis females are not capable of realizing the number of actually working apps with potential matches within 50 miles is limited to maybe 2, and grindr is by far the more common of the two.
Bi female who likes to play with bi males, have you stopped to consider that your anatomy makes being noticed by any interested male party far easier than a gay man or two bi men?
We already live in a society where two females making out or being together is viewed in a positive or arousing light. But two men? It’s still taboo and there are murders every year that support this.
Your entitled to go and do anything you want with whoever you want. Society has been reinvented just to make woman’s sexuality more widely acceptable.
Well it’s still widely more profitable too. When a bisexual man wants to be with a female he has those other places to got to.
Can you even imagine the outrage and media coverage if a bisexual male who likes bisexual females started crashing woman only sites and events?
We don’t have even a fair media portrayal of what we are. We barely have a single functioning app that’s always going to be for hook ups. We aren’t as accepted as we *should be* in public environments.
Let them use whatever reasons they want to like the ones below. They will never justify the cost and toll they take without any regard to who needs something they simply want.
If your married to a bi man and he wants to be with men maybe you should address your marriage and not invite yourself into a community that didn’t get a #metoo movement. Because yeah, we can say no too but usually that’s where things get much worse.
Two gay men from my graduating class have died from suicide within the last 5 years. 0 females. So be happy you have s voice. We have drag queens snd media making it easy to be a little homophobic
Using apps designed for straight people allows me to see men seeking men only. I paid for Grindr and cannot filter out women. It’s effectively like using a straight app, except I am forced to be in contact with women. I won’t renew.
Current profe READ BIO... is posing as a cisgender female. She is robbing people for gift cards. Seems harmless but she is fake , thieving a d there should be no tolerance
