There's an age filter that filters the age I'm looking for. There should be an age filter of the age the others are looking for. It's easier to find someone looking for my age range.
you can't filter ethnicity--that's racist
you can't filter gender/sex--that's transphobic
but you can filter age and body type: so ageism and body shaming are ok.
OR....are all of these things just sexual preferences and have nothing to do with politics and there for getting rid of gender/sex and ethnicity filters is an over reaction meant to placate a small but very vocal minority?
I live in an area without a lot of people i do not find attractive (for various reasons but usually because they are women or trans). So, I have blocked--no shit--at least 200 people. Isn't this what people do instead now? Since you can't filter you just block and reblock and reblock?
PLEASE. I don't care if other people my age want to hook up with much older people, thats their choice! I want to have a choice where I'm not constantly message by guys 30 years older than me who I'm not into. I think it would do a lot to improve the app.
The age filtering system needs updating. I don't want people outside of my set age range seeing my profile. For instance I set my max to 35 I don't want someone 57 seeing my pricing and messaging me. I can't help I'm only attracted to certain age range and I don't want grandpas messaging me!!!! Please update that!!!

yeah also add the same for weight, race, etc.. SJWs often complain about the "no fatties, no asians, no fem" on profiles. If we could just hide ourselves from people we are not looking for, then there would be no need for preferences on profiles
For us older users, it would be helpful to have a category that indicates what age category is looking for. Also, body hair categories.
The app should allow you to set the age range on your personal preferences (like TRIBE, BODY TYPE etc…) then create a new filter like LOOKING FOR MY AGE (on/off) to display only people interested on your age.
Add a checkbox to the age filter to block users outside the age range I set from contacting me.

Not so fast, I happen to be one and there are many, like me they are looking for older, younger, as well as near the same age. I happen to have a broad range but generally older than 45, younger than that it seems maturity and criminal stupidity are common denominators so I eliminate a large swath of them w/that general rule. I'm 62
OK after reading some very insightful comments I'm inclined to agree w/this age filter thing too. I can't understand why anyone can get mad about a choice. Be it age or any reason as long as your not insulting about the rejection of their attention. If they get mad, block them. I have specific choices and some are pushy and impatient. Makes me feel their up to no good anyway, why the hurry and meet crap.
It could be interesting to be able to filter the age of people who can see my profile. If I don’t want to be contacted by people out of a specific age range.

The actual age filter is to search for men WHO HAVE the ages set by the filter.
What I am requesting is to be able to filter out men who DO NOT WANT to contact people of my age.
There is an option to filter the age & you don't have to pay anything for that. It's absolutely free. You will find the age filter option on the top right corner of the app. There you just click it and then Choose the min and Max age group that you are looking for.
There is a age filter I use it all the time
You have to pay for grinder to use the age filter
There is a age filter and I love it
This would definitely be a great addition. I'm tired of the people that take it as a personal insult that I'm just not interested in older guys. Whether you like it or not, I just never get along with older people. It's never happened in the past, and likely never will. I'm not attracted to them either, so letting them see my profile and then message me when there's literally 0 chance I'd ever bother is just ridiculously stupid.
It's like how they don't allow you to filter by position (top, bottom, or verse) for free.. it makes no sense whatsoever for me, as a top, to see other tops.. That's a very integral part of gay dating and sex (obviously), it shouldn't be something locked behind a paywall. Just like the age thing is very integral and shouldn't be locked behind a paywall if it's added.
Wow. A quick look at some of the comments should make it clear that this feature is long overdue.
There’s something deeply concerning about grown men being outraged at hypothetically being unable to message significantly younger people on a dating/hookup app who would never be interested in them anyway, especially when they co-opt the language of social justice to make it seem like they’re protesting some sort of terrible injustice. Crying discrimination because someone doesn’t want to date or have sex with someone significantly older than them? Really? The level of entitlement is astounding.
This and the ethnicity filter both need to be added! Also, for all users, not just XTRA!
1) Stephen Fry's husband is 30 years his juniorvetc
2) pests come in all ages...good communication and interpersonal skills go a long way to dealing with it
3) I also strongly suggest reading and adhering to the grindr community guidelines if one hasn't done so already
4) it just so happens that the guys i find attractive happen to be younger...funny thing my old mums the same but her bff used to like much older guys...and thanks to grindr my much younger current lover who also like older men was able to find me
5) I do like the idea of features that allow users to search for people with compatible preference so for example if i like otters and someone else like daddies we could findI each other quicker more efficiently...
6) could say more...the aesthetics of ageism for instance but that'll do...gotta get back to grindr and check out all those sexually provocative pictures put up mainly by younger guys which make grindr such a titilating experience for me (even if they do breach the community guidelines)
Let's say you wanna see exclusively people that are between 20 to 30 and you select this range in the age filter, then your profile should only be shown to this people
This way we won't be repetitively spammed by people we are not interested in.
