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.

Have profiles be 100% filled up with info and have people read before they talk
Get rid of all the Profiles with no pics or profiles with nothing in them Grindr is losing ground fast because of this
Please make it mandatory to complete key info on all profiles.. and if it is not completed, your profile will not be visible to other users and you will not be able to message other users.
By "Key Info", I specifically mean:
- HIV STATUS
- LAST TESTED DATE
- Body Type
- Position (but broaden to include "Oral" and "Not Listed)
- Relationship Status
- Looking For
There is no reason for the above information not to be completed. And it is doubly irritating when there is no profile information AND no picture. If a person is "discreet", they can list that under their Tribes.
Completed profile with face pic.
If users want to be discreet and don't want to have a profile picture of themselves the they should be required to at least have age, hight ,weight. If the profile answered all the basics it would be a better experiance. The less back and forth messaging the better. Ex: what are you in to? Host or travel?
If you guys can find a way to play mach maker i will be more willing to pay money. Based d on pictures and profiles only your staff has access to.
Guys should have their profile details filled in. It’s not a guessing game and 20 questions.
You don’t walk up to a guy in a bar and ask how tall heavy and ethnicity
Make it mandatory to complete user profiles to at least 80%
This will help illiminate predators and time wasters as well as abusive individuals
