Improve the reliability of the “Looking For” filter
As an XTRA subscriber who's not into internet hookups, I filter my cascade for profiles looking for "Friends, Dates, + Relationships." However, profiles looking for "Friends, Right Now, and Chat" will still pop up (for example), and, upon further inspection, it becomes clear that these profiles are only interested in "Right Now," which renders the filter useless. To fix this, please integrate a toggle for a search modifier of “ONLY” into the filter, so that our searches generate more reliable results that better reflect the matches we are looking for.
When selecting "Friends, Dates, + Relationships" in the “Looking For” field of our search:
• Grindr's current default will return profiles that are looking for: Friends only, Dates only, Relationships only, or any combination that includes at least one of the three—like "Friends and Right Now" or "Dates and Chat" or "Friends, Dates, Relationships, and Right Now."
• Setting the search modifier to “ONLY” will return profiles that are looking for: Friends only, Dates only, Relationships only, two of the three, or all three combined—but no combinations outside of what is specified in the filter.
This will improve the XTRA experience and make it 100x more meaningful, by allowing subscribers to filter more effectively.
It used to be like this, not sure why it changed.
*This can also be implemented for the “Tribes” filter.
