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 connections. The user experience would improve tenfold.
Bad idea. You just need to grow up and expand your connection to the world outside of an app that you personally have not found success in navigating.
In manhunt you can filter for face pics and ethcity and not waste time at no extra fee. I am not interested in other races.
This sounds like a terrible idea. Please dont do this.
This is so cheap and tantamount of fast-scene gay culture, pushing the boundaries of what’s healthy
If your profile effectively uses its 250 characters, then you’ll attract genuinely interested guys to further compare potential commonalities
If no one is responding [ within a practical distance ], chances are what you’ve written doesn’t appeal/ you have unrealistic expectations, and/ or you may need to do some self-renovating
I’m really over this latent “expectancy” mentality, that there’s a piece of meat available 20 meters away every 5 minutes. That’s addiction. Stop expecting others to kowtow to your time-poor and validation melodramatics
Everyone is at different stages in their life journey and to push fast-scene culture as a one-shoe-fits-all on others really isn’t appropriate
If you are into specific obscurities, there are specific websites catering to those fetishises etc
Maybe try Facebook/ Instagram/ Meetup etc for gay social common interest groups in the broader spectrum of total society
Want to link with gay pole dancers/ specific ethnic gay groups/ gay parrot breeders etc etc, go to Facebook/ Instagram/ Meetup etc etc. Not every gay man uses Grindr
Guys with blank profiles should be respected too, maybe it’s a big step for them just to come online
This is a good idea but would require there to be custom values for many of the fields because there are many fields I leave blank because none of the options apply.

So if one person doesn't put their weight in and another leaves their height out they will never see each other. Sounds a bit silly. I put stuff in my my profile that I'm not bothered if the other person does not put in theirs. Does not mean I'm not interested.
