“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.
The problem with blocking someone is that Grindr's block system is not very reliable I have blocked the same people multiple times. Seems if you blocks get full they just randomly unblock some of the people you have blocked. This is also a suggestion to make blocks more effective if you want to search thru all the suggestions you will find it. So yes I am in Favor of a "Not Interested" tap option
it's called the block button
Grindr charge a lot for premium and they want people to think that there’s lots of interested guys… which is why it says online when they went ages ago. So it’s no surprise they don’t want to add a no thanks message.
Any app that’s there to benefit the user would have a quick feedback option… force a response before you can move on… yes/no/more detail

Marvellous idea darling 😘
Now this sounds like a very very good idea do you know how much time people waste on here messaging the same person over and over because that person is to nice to block you but to lazy to type sorry not interested??? This should have been done a long time ago!!! Introduce it for 2023!!!

Or you could be a decent person and block him
As a serial tapper, I agree very much.

Hey I paid for the full app. The idea is not stupid. Blocking somebody hurts their feelings. Saying not interested doesn’t. If the person persist then block them. Simple human kindness should be encouraged and easy. Not difficult or discourage.

The solution about adding custom phrases is nott workable. That feature is broken. . I created two custom phrases. It takes me like seven paragraphs to describe how to get to my house, so I added to custom phrases the directions. Now when I try to use the app, I can’t chat with anybody because the custom phrase buttons take up the majority is the chat window. Phrase feature assumes that you’re only saying one or two words not a paragraph. Even only one kr two word phrases take up chat wondo Real estate I had to delete my custom multi line phrases - in order to be able to chat with folks.
It's a good idea, but I think the problem would still remain. Most of the times when I'm not interested they still continue to persist, I have to tell them that I don't find them attractive either because of age, weight... and even then some will continue with their "mission".
I think that a good solution for this though could be a temporary block, so when you hit the "I'm not interested" you two wouldn't be able to talk to each other for 1/2 days
I agree with the “create a phrase” idea mentioned.
We all know how ridiculously fast Grindr is at adding things and at the same time making said idea a “paid for” only idea that you might as well save time and create the phrase yourself.
All the cool kids are doing this!..I joke!
The issue with that is, you could quite easily tap someone with one of the existing taps rather than a not interested tap because you only need to touch it to send the flame and hold it to select anything else.
Just save 'Sorry, not interested' as a phrase if you are that lazy and it's just as quick to respond.
Damn they so quick to block people when that person could have been interested and a friendship only lol
This is a really good idea, please implement this in some form!

I suggest that just as there is an option to report a user for "harassment" there should also be a report for "ignore", if someone does not interest me a simple "no thanks" works. otherwise ignoring is also an act of discrimination. think about it Thank you.

While purchasing unlimited plan in Grindr try to add this features if possible, remove the blocking options in profile and add not interested tab (after marking not interested it must shown alert to him , after that he tried to message or call it won't give notification or alert ) consider this
Chris A commented
Have a quick blocking feature to remove those you're not interested in or of those who've ignored you. But label it something else like "disinterested" so that I'm not seeing the same people

if you not interested in someone, you just block them period. it’s definetly better approach that to tap someone as not interested, it does not make sense. this feature is actually giving everyone a way to take a hit to their self steem. why would you want to keep seeing someone on your grid that you have no interest on?
