“Not interested” tap option
Taps. Currently we have the flame, devil and friendly hello tap option. Why don’t we have a “not interested” tap option too? A lot of people have problems with being ignored by others when someone isn’t interested in them. However, people also cannot be bothered to reject others with words - it’s too much effort. This update to the tap mechanism could kill two birds with one stone. It makes it less time/energy consuming to reject people with just a click of a button. AND the guys who feel invalidated when being ignored, can get an answer - instead of pestering folk for answers. I believe this is pretty efficient and is better for everyone’s mental health.

I think it's awfully harsh. If someone doesn't respond in an appropriate amount of time (not two minutes after you send your message), put your big boy pants on and move on.

Tenho raiva, nojo dessa função, serve apenas para incomodar. É uma espécie de interesse fraca, parece que são incapazes de escrever a mensagem, incomoda muito essa função. O Grindr deveria respeitar os usuários que não gostam desse TAP e colocar a final t habitar oh desligar. Obrigar todos a usar não é mediano. Tem muito tempo que muitas pessoas reclama, não quer e o aplicativo não respeita, não atende as solicitações, fingindo que não sabe! Vou parar de usar porque me incomoda muito!! Odeio TAP!!
Robert Been, great thoughts and ideas! I always appreciate someone saying 'thanks, but no thanks rather than just ignoring me. Yeah, it's a drag to get this response from a guy you really wanted to bang, but at least I know where I stand with him. Move on.
Maybe another idea is that you could allow people to know how mich you are interested in them on a scale of 0 to 5. 0 means not at all, and five means super into them.
I would rate profiles and people would rate mine.
And then I could search by guys that are super into me, or kind of into me 3,4).
Besides I’m not interested button, I’d like to see another button that says something like “not tonight but maybe another nigh” or an “ask me again” button.
The fact of the matter is, a lot of people are just plain rude - if I’m not interested in the guy, I’ll let them know. If a guy is not interested in me, why doesn’t he let me know? This button would make it easier for me to know people aren’t into me versus they’re just not into me that night.
This is a great idea. The people who seem to dislike the idea don’t seem to understand what this person is saying.
If I write to a guy, and he doesn’t write back, is it because he never read the message? Or because he’s not interested? I have no way of knowing. How do I know this? Because people write to me, because Grindr doesn’t sort new emails to the top, sometimes I don’t see an email message for 2 to 3 weeks! Turn it in late, sometimes I read a message, and I can’t reply to it because I was about to sign off, and I don’t want to write back and say hi and start a new conversation or hi, I will chat another day.
Sometimes I’ve read messages from guys I am into, but I don’t have time to respond, so I wait until the next day and then I go back to find that message and the guys blocked me because he assumed that I didn’t respond right away that I wasn’t interested. This button would help so much. If people don’t like it, they don’t have to use it rather than attacking those who think the idea is great.
I mean a simple sorry not match would be enough tho , with no further explanation. sometimes it follows with a block or just alright both parties move on

I love this idea 💡 it will really help with letting people down cause it's really hard to let people know that your not nterested I have talk too people knowing i wasn't ever going too give them the time of day and wasted my time and there's in life and time is the most valuable asset in the world so i definitely say there should be a not interested button....
It's easier to ignore and move on with your goddamn life.
When someone sends their location, iPhone users cannot open it on Maps or Google Maps to get precise directions. It is currently available for Android and it’s great. Please update on iOS 🙏

Since we are not allowed to just state we are NOT ATTRACTED to certain types, we need a way to let others know. Screw the perceived racism or "phobia", just like a homosexual has NO ATTRACTION to a women, a guy who likes other guys is not attracted to all guys, just like mass majority of us are not attracted to little boys. So stop trying to force us to be attracted to people we are not attracted to, and make it a part of the guidelines that we do NOT need to be attracted to every individual that uses Grindr and they need to stop complaining about their feelings being hurt because someone is being honest. You create the hate you claim to be preventing by trying to require everyone to be attracted certain people because of how they think of themselves.

Shouldn't be in here commented
Honestly. While the world is trying to please every pronoune and category out there, let me ask the question. What is the difference between a not interested function and an ethnicity filter? The world has become to sensitive and Honestly people's pretences are not going to change regardless. It's not racist to choose the ethnicity that you prefer amd it's not rude to press "not interested"
Grow some balls people and start being honest with yourselves, we are only human and it's in our DNA to judge others to filter the diamonds out of the bucket of shit that we deal with everytime we go onto grindr.

this would just destroy my self esteem
It's not true that people are not bothered to reject others with words. The problem is that lots of people have problems with being rejected with words therefore after a track record of being bullied and verbally abused people simply stop replying. I totally support a Not Interested tap option. This should also stop notification from messages and tap sent by the ignored people.
The options provided on romeo are a really good way of breaking the ice. no reason why Grindr cant use something similar.
I just don't respond when I'm not interested because whether it be via a tap that says "not interested" or me saying "not interested" directly, guys freak out on me and I end up blocking them anyway.

Change the verbiage of the Blocked button to say not interested so it doesn’t feel as cruel to block someone. I don’t want to start conversations with guys who message me if I’m not interested in them, but I also don’t want to leave them hanging. The thing that happens when you block someone is really the best option. We become out of sight, out of mind from each other. But the word Block sounds a little harsher than it needs to be. Essentially I’m just not interested. Whether I’m not interested because you’re a hot muscle jock and I’m only into silver foxes or because you seem like a psychopath, or because you are my cousin lol, I’m not interested. It’s like saying thanks, but no thanks. But really, all I’m proposing is that the Block feature stay exactly the same, except that it says “Not interested” instead of “Blocked”.
