  1. Distance Reciprocity - users should only get to see other users’ distance if they are showing their own

    Unless located in a country with anti-gay legislation, users hiding their distance should not get to see distance on other profiles. This would inspire a much-needed culture of fair play and reciprocity on the app, while also incentivizing members to stop hiding and stop wasting people’s time. (Not to mention that with distance shown on more profiles, browsing would be easier and the overall user experience would improve.)

  4. Straight seeking trans only do not belong on this app.

    Straight seeking trans only do not belong on this app. It fetishizes trans people for straight guys in a disgustingly predatory way.

  5. gender filter

    I understand that Grindr is trying to be more inclusive but you should include a gender filter because my gallery is full of people I'm not interested in

  6. This app is for MEN SEEKING MEN, NOT women. Sorry not sorry - keep it that way or make a new app!

    This application was designed for men seeking men. Period. I'll reiterate. Men. Seeking. Men. There are women on here seeking men. See the issue? It's called Tindr or whatever else they use.

    I'm also all for empowering trans women. But, this app is for men seeking men. So either make a new app for women seeking men, or add filters. It's either that, or Scruff.

  7. Return Grindr To Its Roots

    I joined Grindr with the hope of meeting other cis gay guys to maybe make friends or something more, but I continuously am bombarded by women and trans people. It's extremely frustrating. I would like for Grindr to go back to its roots as a platform for cis gay men only. This is a platform that's supposed to be for cis gay men only, but Grindr feels it needs to bow down to society and be "all inclusive". This effectively squashes Grindr's status as a platform and safe space specifically for cis gay men and allows for us to be…

  8. Ethnicity

    Please restore Ethnicity filter, it nothing has with racist, as a gay man I love Arabian guys, I talked with I guy and the only way to find him again it should be with that filter but it doesn't have anymore so please restore that, it doesn't make sense have the option to say my ethnicity and doesn't have a filter with that.

  9. Restrict Pictureless Profiles

    Profiles without any public pictures should not be able to send messages to members who do. These profiles are a pain.

    It can be taken one step further by making verified public face photos only accessible for viewing as long as the viewing profile has a verified public face picture as well. No tug of war over who sends first.

  10. cost

    The cost of Xtra and unlimited is too high. I’d like to use the paid service but the idea of paying nearly $50 a month just to find a dude to screw me is too high.

    Grindr has paying members so it doesn't need ads to make money. Remove the ads they are so annoying and a waste of time, especially that stupid candy crush one

  12. 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…

  13. Verify Identity & Age(displlay badge)

    Have users take a photo(of face) using the app and permissions for use of camera. To verify they are a real person. For the discreet users they must verify but do NOT have to upload a public face picture but will be able to show they are verified. Heres the easier option for age verification along with identity is having the user upload a government issued photo ID, this will definitely prevent underage user and scam/fake accounts and adding the "take a selfie" will work as an extra verification.

  14. Not show ads for the bible and other religious material

    Many LGBTQ+ people have escaped from religion or it was used as a weapon against them. Maybe not inflicting that on them would be a good idea. If people want religious ads they would not be looking on this particular dating app.

  15. Stricter verification

    I would like for Grindr to implement stricter verification for new and existing users in an effort to combat underage individuals posing as adults, bots, etc. I've heard a number of stories of men who have chatted with individuals who they thought were of legal age, only to find out upon meeting them that they're some horny teen. I'm proposing the implementation of verification measures such as ID (Government issued, driver's license, passport, etc), bank account, submitting a facial selfie with a piece of paper visible displaying a verification code, email verification, as well as changing the age requirements to…

  16. Id verification

    I hope you guys can make id verification complusory in some countries for our own safety, in middle east there are many causes of people that were blackmailed and threatened to get their sexuality exposed to their relatives by fake straight people which asked them to pay money for not doing thag , i really hope you can consider that not all countries have protective laws and that in many of them you might be punished for being gay so id verification will make everything safer because it will be harder for fraudulents to register and also will limit them…

  18. Double ads, two in a row

    Remove double Ads, two in a row. I understand an ad supported, free model; however two ads in a row are annoying and does anyone pay any attention to the second one that you can skip in one second. Probaly a different price for advertisers, but I would rather see more single adds than two in a row.

  19. Make this a male gay app for men

    Back in 2009, one of the original Grindr rules was that you had to be of age (usually 18) and male. MALE! What’s a male? Ohhh my goodness how could Grindr be so exclusive! Isn’t it ironic how a woke ignorant culture of insanely evolving political correctness is eroding even the most basic, common sense thoughts about what a dick for dick means. I’m beyond fed up with trying to pacify everyone’s ever changing rules. Cos, sis, tranny intersect purple blue and hamsters. Oh and while we are are it, where are the lesbians and men seeking women, (penis for…
