    @Amit well you're missing my point: there can't be any filter based on attractiveness because attractiveness is 100% subjective. or explain to me how such a filter would work.

    I agree that there is a lot of ageism on grindr and or the gay community in general. and yes actual age and how old someone looks are also two different things. .

    But still, the point of this filter would be that IF someone has a strict age filter and IF I'm outside of their age range, that THEN I don't even want to see their profile. It's just a matter of efficiency. Why should I waste time looking at profiles if our age preferences don't match?

    @Amit yeah right, attractiveness is completely objective of course. what a lot of bull. and it's perfectly understandable if people have age limits, and you should respect that instead of lying to them. and for what? get 100 instead of 10 messages. quality over quantity is the better approach anyway.

    One of the biggest if not THE biggest turn of when using Grindr is getting unsolicited dick pics. This is especially true for younger folks, but also for everybody whos not looking for (quick) sex. even if someone is looking for sex, that doensn't mean they want to get dick pics from random people.

    But there's an easy fix. if you can only send someone a picture AFTER they have sent you a message or given you a tap. it wouldn't stop unsolicited dick pics completely, but like at least at a 95% rate. you could also give users the option to turn this mode on or off, but the default should be no pics unless both parties "agreed" to the conversation. it would make grindr a much safer space instantly.

    I do believe that the random dick pic situation is a big contributing factor why Grindr has more and more developed to a virtually strict hook up app. I do remember times when it was more chill. also, thanks to grindr now it's almost common belief that getting an unssolicited dick pic is just "the cost of doing business" for being on a gay dating app - or just for being gay. but it really shouldn't be. and we should especially think about all the teenagers using the app for the first time and then get sent hundreds of these pics, most of them from guys twice and thrice their age and even older.
