“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.
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.

To mark profiles as not interested and interested.
The options provided on romeo are a really good way of breaking the ice. no reason why Grindr cant use something similar.

Please Add an "Are You Sure?" Prompt After Tapping someone. I have mixed feelings about taps because half of the people that do it do so on accident as they are scrolling. When you answer these people back, they give no reply presumably because they are not interested and they have tapped you on accident. Adding an "Are You Sure" Question will mitigate this.
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”.
Something similar to what ROMEO has would be ideal. Perfect way of showing exactly what interest (or no interest) users have in other users
They are always changing the profile to get connected with you
Bruh, if you're not interested in someone...just BLOCK HIM.

Yes, that literally happens 100% of the time. You tell someone you’re not interested / they’re not your type …. and then they want an explanation and a full list of characteristics in a guy that *is* your type!! Wtf - I upvote this “not interested” button
I don't understand why all these are being assholes about this idea. I think it's a good one. Get tired of being asked to explain why you're not interested in someone. I'm guessing the ones taking such offense to it are the ones who get rejected frequently.
I would add that having a reject tap as the hello and devil would create a problem as you go and tapping people saying not interested, lets say you find 10 notifications on ur account and all of them are not interested, plus most guys dont check the tap list
Its better to have a rejection button as a ban, if one person hit it on another person’s profile they both are banned from texting
This only comes after or before they talk
Its a “you see me” block
The problem with this idea is that some people, probably like you, will use such a tap as an initial contact. Why not just have a saved text in your profile that politely explains you are not interested. We are all on here looking for some form validation; it is counter to the purpose of this APP to rudely reject others.
