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.
I normally opt for the Age filter that helps me see profile between 23-45 years of age. But when I opt for that filter Grindr hides those potential profiles too who don't want to show their age...
You have a "not mentioned" option in the position filter so why not give the same "not mentioned" option for the age filter?!
If I'm only interested in guys 30-45 but a 70 yr old hits me up, or a 19 yr old hits me up and says "hi". Instead of being rude and not replying or blocking them, with the modified filter they wouldn't even see me so it's all avoided.
I think that's a terrific idea. Nothing is more disheartening than hearing that tap sound only to see that it's from some slob old enough to have been your high school theater teacher.
When using an age or height filter. It also removes people with no age or hight listed. We should be able to select allow for profiles with no height or weight listed to also show up (like in other categories). I don’t think people realize that when they have it blank in their profile. They won’t show up when other people have a filter on.
Everybody calling this ageism: does this mean gay men not wanting to have sex with a woman is sexism?
Can you update the app so if I set my max age to a certain age then someone older than that can’t see me on their app? I’m tired of ppl way older than my preference messaging me. Please update that.
- add the age range in the profile
- add filter “research my age”
All of these comments about ageism are ridiculous. This isn't a job offer. I'm under no obligation to sleep with anyone, especially someone I'm not attracted to. I constantly receive messages from much older men that don't read my profile saying I'm not interested beyond my stated age range.
Clearly it would be MORE beneficial for those older men to ONLY see the profiles that have no issue with their age. This feature would be a win-win.
Btw, just blocking them doesn't help. They just keep remaking their account and messaging you again a month later.
Apps like Tinder not only allows you to filter for an age range but it also makes you visible to that range. I think that would be a pretty good idea so you don't have people 20 years older than you hitting you up and sending you nudes.

I would like to be able to apply a filter in Taps and Messages (like on profiles page).
Let's say I want to see Taps and messages only from Versatile people of certain age. That way I see who I could talk without going through profiles one by one.

I agree with this, this is WHY I quit Grindr.
I got WAY TOO MANY men that were old enough to be my father or my grandfather trying to date me, even AFTER I wrote out that I was not interested in men beyond 26/27 (I'm 23, and I do add in more ages, but remove ages below me as well).
I'm a COLLEGE STUDENT interested in dating those who are in my age range, not gross old men that remind me too much of my father or my grandfather, and who get MAD because I don't want to see their nasty dick pics or ass pics I didn't ask for.
What happened to the search by age ( to people that hide their age ) before you were able to find people by age even if they don’t show their age publicly now if you search by age and let’s say a guy is 30 years old but he has his age hidden he will not appear.. so these people are hard to reach
I like to have my age hidden because I’m closeted but I still want to be reach lol

If you want to block older guys from messaging you then filter out anyone that’s in your age range and then block every profile you see lol. Don’t be such a prude and rather than block everyone so they can’t talk to you simply tell them they aren’t your type... much more of a respectable and “adult” way of handling that situation...
It would be nice to filter the people who viewed your profile by age. Something like "show me everyone under 40 that viewed my profile"
Dumbest idea ever!! Some of you are whack!
Gawd, in reading down through all these comments, I almost feel like saying: “if they want the age block so destitutely, good, give it to them and shut them up” - so long as my block feature works properly as have been having tech errors where blocked profiles reappear 24 hours later🙄 I don’t want exposure to haters in my online world: “asian only”, “black only”, “tyrannies only”,”twinks only” etc; gawd, the less trash for me to wade through, makes my search quicker
But from the bigger picture’s perspective, ageism doesn’t help the fabric robustness of our community’s culture now and into the future
-> Seeking those souls with genuine spirit here! Taking applications now! Get me out of singleness and off these dismal ‘“social” dating’ websites!
...and so out the window flew respect and value of persons deemed “too old”, along with the value of heirlooms & cultural heritage appreciation
“Let’s get rid of the pyramids because they’re old, nothing to teach. Let’s get rid of that virgin growth forest, it’s old. Why not blow up the earth it’s really old, I only like “fun new toys”
I think this person is living in a bubble
...one day we all own that older age, best start learning to interact now and ending elder invalidation and abuse
As recognised adults of accountable age by law on a no-minors website, irrespective of age scale perceived compatibility barriers, younger/ older/ senior, finding some old-fashioned common civil social manners and etiquette truly helps the world go round
Like come on people, agesim, “age ogar-monsters”, ...really??
like how about an immaturity filter, please, and diapers (nappies) with that
It seems that u removed the age filter setting. The filter itself seems still to be active, but I see guys in a certain age range (the filter I had before), while a friend sees all ages. Come on guys - you can do better than this, can't you?
Ageism rears its ugly head. You kids want the ethnicity filter put back, but you don't see that as racist. How about we add an IQ filter so that I only see people who know all the proper uses of the semicolon? Or a Adjusted Gross Income filter so that I don’t have to interact with people outside my socioeconomic circle? Where does it end?
Oh but you can take out a mortgage and probably get that feature
