  1. “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…

  2. Side position

    I, along with thousands of other gays, am a side. Unlike tops or bottoms, we don’t enjoy partaking in anal sex. Unfortunately the only options available under “position” all refer to anal sex. It’d be very helpful to include an “oral only” or “side” or anything really, so that we don’t have to explain ourselves to everyone who messages us.

  3. Notifications that are grouped, detailed, and replyable

    Please bundle our new unread messages under one main notification, which can be pulled down (expanded) to view the individual messages grouped under it. Include each sender’s profile picture and display name, and allow us to reply to each sender individually, within the notification.

    (Currently, unpaid users just get a single, generic notification containing a count of their unread messages, while paid users only see their single most recent unread message. Non-grouped, non-detailed, non-replyable notifications like these are extremely outdated, especially for a messaging app.)

  4. Sexual activity options

    Would be nice to have a section to choose our sexual activities likes, similar to the "Looking for" section.
    Include multiple choice options such as: anal, oral, light fun, rimming, no sex, no anal, bareback, etc.
    I think that would guide guys in finding like minded guys.
    Also it will free up space in typing in the 255 character box.

  5. Separate section for trans people and their admirers

    I think trans men and trans women along with people who are trans-attracted deserve to have their own separate posting section. That way, trans community members and their admirers can better easily connect with one another. It would be beneficial and make sense to give trans people and their seekers their own platform, connected to the rest of Grindr but as a section within the existing app. You could call it GrindrTrans or something.

  6. Ethnicity filter

    I would like to have that filter back, I am a latino in his 30's I have traveled a lot and have developed certain tendency to specific ethnicities that for mostly cultural reasons I feel very attracted to. I am a very open person that condemn racism and discrimination but I do not see how taking down the filter alone works on the fight against exclusion and discrimination. I actually believe this might even deepen the invisibility of minorities from the view of people that could be really interested on interacting with who is different, as well as, obstructing the…

  7. Bring back the search by ethnicity function.

    Bring back the ethnicity function. This was very popular and useful but seems to have been removed. Why? What is the difference between searching for height, position, body type and ethnicity? Even for paying customers it isn't available?

  8. Add 'kink' to tribes!

    There is the leather option but that is just 1 kind of kink so it's a very narrow field. A few people use that tribe for kink but alot of people are intimidated by this because they aren't into leather and see it as "too extreme" for them. I'm surprised it hasn't already been made into a tribe if im honest!

  9. Change notification ringtone

    Please give us the option to change the notification sound. It becomes awkward at times when we receive a notification in public.

  10. I’d like the ethnicity filter back - except you have to be smart about it.

    The ethnicity filter can be back with a small change so you can stop people from filtering out people of color.

    It has been impossible for me, as a person of color, to find other people of color. I am an Asian man who are interested in black men and i live in a predominantly white area. It’s been impossible.

    The whole reason why the filter was bad was people filtering out people of color. So small tweaks can restore it and still make it not racist:

    -You can make the ethnicity filter temporary by one search. So you can’t…

  12. Ethnicity filter

    I’m not a huge fan of allowing the gays to contribute to this heteronormative expression of “not my type” -ing with this filter but I’ve been “trapped” before not knowing what to say when pictures don’t reveal ethnicity and it contributed to an awkward conversation of how this “doesn’t work for me.” I suppose it’s racist 🤷‍♂️ but whether it’s preconceived notions that the White cis-male Christ loving and fucking structure have pounded in my skull all my life, - … grinder is not the place to have that dialogue or to be “woke” I mean it’s a Fuck site…

  14. Filter Out Trans From Listing

    There seriously needs to be an optional means of filtering out the Transgendered, the female and the non-gays.

    This is primarily a gay dating site but that is not the point. The majority of use are males who are looking for males but that too is not the point.

    The point is not quite that in bygone years virtually all of those using Grindr were gay male but now a very high percentage are in either varying degrees of non-gay or non-male mode, but that we are limited to only being able to view the nearest 100 or 600 profiles…

  15. Please add polyamorous

    Please add Polyamorous to the available relationship statuses. It's quite different than "open relationship" and those of us who are in poly relationships really have no suitable option in the drop down list as none of the ones you offer accurately include the polyamorous lifestyle.

  16. Bring Back Ethnicity Filter for Everybody

    GRIND HAS FAILED.

    It's very arrogant for woke Grindr CEO Jeff Bonforte to make a favour to the fascist marxist racist Black Lives Matter movement by lecturing us from his comfy office in California on who we should have a romance with and to control who is going to show up on OUR grid on OUR phones instead of letting us chose who are OUR potential MATCHES as paying members (I already cancelled don’t count me in).

    So basically it turns out similarly to Facebook that Grindr is not the product: WE ARE THE PRODUCT, the product of a concealed…

  17. Race and ethnicity

    I am a black man and Grindr has no idea how it made it difficult to find people who look like me to relate to. The removing of race in order to reduce racism made things worst for us people of color. Grindr was a way to interact and promotes black Asian Hispanic love now you reduced it to a fake color blind utopia. I'm not paying if I can't filter to find my people.

  19. More Body Type Options!

    The current body type options aren’t exactly what a lot of us would prefer to use. I’ve seen a lot of Bios that say “if there was a thick body type option id choose it” so I know I’m not the only one who thinks the options need some updating! My personal suggestion for either swapping some of the ones currently available or just to be added would be
    1- Thicc
    2- Slim thicc
    3- dad bod
    4- Chub
    5- tall / lengthy

  20. Unable to filter ethnicity

    Everyone has choice and freedom to choose so you are discriminating by removing that feature and when I paid for extra that was available filter so give me my money back !
