“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.
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?

I agree as long as the user is also automatically blocked: I have been verbally abused so much for so long for simply stating that I wasn't interested that I will never ever say it again no matter what.
Often using filters there are still many people showing up that I have no interest in. These include no photos, no profile information, hidden age, they have facial hair and/or hairy, they don't match my ethnic likes, they don't match my body type likes, they are a girl(which I believe should not be allowed it is a Gay APP not LGBT+) trans, crossdresser, wear woman's panties, fem or sub and so many more. I should be able to either setup a more detailed filter with things like orientation (gay, trans) etc. Facial hair, body hair, and more from above and other suggestions here after I set this up grindr will only show me those guys who match with an option for me to select a partial or full match. Anyone who does not match should not be able to view, tap or message me perhaps instead show a general image saying to view this profile complete yours in full?
I pay for Gribdr Unlimited which is damn expensive but get very little more over xtra. For what I pay I should get all of the above and more. Scruff, daddy hunt, even hornet offer these things why not Gribdr?
Also the suggestion of a not interested to taps option is stupid pay for the app and use block better than being rude and ignoring or sending a not interested.

You have a section of things that you like or interested in, so you should have a complimenting section for dislikes of things you are not personally interested in. Such as personality traits, sexual incompatibilities, general turn offs, etc.
There's alot of trans and cis women on here that I am not interested in especially cis women. In order to block them you need to go into their account and they can see that on their "viewed you" thing. There should be a way to block them without actually viewing their account. Maybe if you hold their picture in the nearby grid it can bring up an option bar to block or mute them. Preferably block.
Allow for criteria-based auto-block (I.e. I can choose specific profiles criteria like age, ethnicity, circumcising, looking for, identify as, masc/fem, etc.) that become automatically blocked from messaging me or seeing my profile. I spend most of my time on the app having to delete msgs and block ppl I’m not interested in.

But keep Blocked option...some I dont want to deal with.

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.

There is nothing more frustrating than sending someone a message and getting no response -
or chatting with someone for a couple of texts- then they suddenly stop replying but are still online
We have all been there at some point - and it’s so annoying..
and because everyone is online for different reasons, there is no way for us to really know why they are not replying -
Are they: busy/ not interested/ interested - but have already made plans// youre not their type but they don’t like using the “block ” option/ they just can’t be bothered replying
One way that could really help take some of the guesswork and frustration out of the situation -
When there is no response -
You could send a “pop up” text
This would appear on the recipients screen - showing the various answer options,
This pop up would stay in the centre of the screen until the person answers..
It wouldn't solve every issue, but at least it might let the sender know if the other person actually likes them In the1st place…
Or that the recipient is now busy and can’t continue the chat, but are interested in chatting another time .
And t would also be a better way to let someone know you are not interested or that they are not your “type”, - much better than just having the “block”option
Ultimately this would help people be a bit more thoughtful towards others,giving everyone a basic level of courtesy and respect from the start -
Blocking does not work. You block then they're back after a while, sometimes within a couple of hours. There is a guy who keeps messaging me and I am not interested, I keep blocking and they're back and messaging me again. It is actually not very safe and enables harassment.

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!!
Guy Nutz commented
I agree with your sentiment. However, I also personally use block to block the countless individuals for whom I know there is absolutely no chance of connection. Far too often, block is used to catfish people. They expose you, get your pictures, find out who you are, send bogus pictures themselves, and then immediately block you... Often after toying with you. It's a terrible practice used by losers... But being able to block people that you know is absolutely not a match is a good thing :-)
Biman Pelt commented
Has been on Grindr for some time now. In itself it is a fantastic app but the block option is terrible. You converse with each other, exchange information, forward photos and so on. You make yourself vulnerable and suddenly you are blocked. You can no longer respond and you have lost all information. How depressing is this. It destroys your confidence. Why not "not interested" instead? Hopefully the block option will also be removed soon.
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.

you'd rather we verbally reject or / and ignore you whenever you message someone?
and you mean to imply there aren't any people *you're* not interested in talking to / dealing with?
