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.
This would stop us messaging guys who don’t want to hear from guys of our age
If you can specify which age range can see you later profile, it'll make the whole experience so much more legit and LOADS more people will use the app.
It's not judging each other, most people have an age limit - be it up or down... There are so many people who don't use Grindr because of this
I can view people based on my search criteria but then often read that I’m out of their age range or other preferences so why can’t I filter on people who want to date people like me (relationship, age, etc).
Your filter also affects other peoples filters.
As an example:
Your filter: age range 25 - 50
Anybody outside of those filters will not be able to view your profile. This is also the same for body type, height, weight and anything else in that filter.
This will incidentally narrow down radars but makes for more accurate results with less hassle. It means profiles that appear have the same interests as yours.
This just furthers the already growing problem of gays judging each other for things no one can control like Age. If that person is creepy block them. Most older people have self respect and don’t go after ******* Twinks that think they are the best. Creepy comes in all ages and bringing ageism to this already judgmental app that was created for quick hookups will be it’s downfall. If you need app assistance to tell someone you’re not interested, grow a backbone and be more upfront instead of hiding.

If you have limit like 18 to 29 only or 20 to 23, have a setting where whoever isn't in your prefer age range to not see your profile and don't text or tap you
We 'old' guys were here long before such apps were available and it was far more dangerous meeting guys. We have every right to send a complimentary message.
Unrealistic feature. It would be easy to enhance messages to automatically ignore messages from users outside a range, such as the range specified in search criteria.
However, this is a guarantee to encourage even more users to post fake information.
Hard to explain
Currently if a filter is applied, let’s say age. It changes the users users view to the set desired filter. However, it does not prevent those outside of the age range from contacting the user.
The new filter should make the user only visible to those the user desires.
Ex. If a white guy is only interested in white guys his filter would reflect only white guys for his view. Unfortunately, black users would still be able to contact him as he’s still visible in their view. The new filter should prevent black users from seeing him therefor preventing wasted effort in communicating
This person is going to be old one day and karma’s a *****
Great example of ageism. If a simple "hi how are you?" From an older guy creeps you out, the problem is yours.
This most definitely works both ways. I am tired of young ***** bottoms and gold diggers asking me if I’m generous. Meanwhile I wouldn’t hook up with these guys for free. I prefer men over 35.
Works both ways. I’m bombarded by the daddy hunters who don’t care that I stipulate 40yo or older. All I seem to do on this app is block pushy millennials.
Soooo many young guys looking for a daddy. Like to block under 25. Hate when their first post to me is “ Daddy”
Also allow blocking of messages from profiles that are belies your age range. Too many hustlers looking for sugar daddies
And younger guys. I am not interested in men under 40 but I'm always getting messages from them. ******* twinks puss me off. Not all old guys are creepy.

Profile field for desired age range. Also a filter so all people on your feed are open to your age.
I like this Explorer feature but I'm not allowed to filter profiles by tribes weight, age Etc. I pay for the service so that I may use the filters and expand my radius. You seem to have cut back on that but the Explorer feature would allow me to search another areas if I was able to use the filters currently you don't allow that
Put a tab that’s tells other What age of guys you are looking for so they no before they chat!
For example, if a 15 year old student poses as an 18 year old student and messages a teacher and the teacher responds with messages and pictures, the student can then spread his info around school leading to the teacher getting fired or even prosecuted in court. All while the entire time the teacher thought he was talking to an 18 year old. Either that or make it to where you have to PROVE YOUR AGE before making an account. Too many instances where this happens, we need to change this!
