    There’s actually websites specifically catering to this taste

    ...someone’s got an agenda, bad

    Gawd, in reading down through all these comments, I almost feel like saying: “if they want the age block so destitutely, good, give it to them and shut them up” - so long as my block feature works properly as have been having tech errors where blocked profiles reappear 24 hours later🙄 I don’t want exposure to haters in my online world: “asian only”, “black only”, “tyrannies only”,”twinks only” etc; gawd, the less trash for me to wade through, makes my search quicker

    But from the bigger picture’s perspective, ageism doesn’t help the fabric robustness of our community’s culture now and into the future

    -> Seeking those souls with genuine spirit here! Taking applications now! Get me out of singleness and off these dismal ‘“social” dating’ websites!

    ...and so out the window flew respect and value of persons deemed “too old”, along with the value of heirlooms & cultural heritage appreciation

    “Let’s get rid of the pyramids because they’re old, nothing to teach. Let’s get rid of that virgin growth forest, it’s old. Why not blow up the earth it’s really old, I only like “fun new toys”

    I think this person is living in a bubble

    ...one day we all own that older age, best start learning to interact now and ending elder invalidation and abuse

    As recognised adults of accountable age by law on a no-minors website, irrespective of age scale perceived compatibility barriers, younger/ older/ senior, finding some old-fashioned common civil social manners and etiquette truly helps the world go round

    Like come on people, agesim, “age ogar-monsters”, ...really??

    like how about an immaturity filter, please, and diapers (nappies) with that

    😧

    Honey, even when the ethno filters were available, there were never enough of them man’s’ to go round. They simply don’t go online

    Perhaps this is a good time for self-reflection, to re-evaluate your ideals of others and realistic expectations. Maybe learn to love others in your region for who they are, they never asked for the level of prejudice you got going bad. White boy hating white boys, self-hate?, what is that

    ...best you be packin’ your bags and headin’ to South Africa to live, there’s plenty o black men’s there, you be in heaven

    😘

    Maybe try Facebook

    Not every gay American Indian is interested in Grindr

    I know of 2 part American Indian gay guys who found each other solely through social activities

    omg

    don’t agree

    I have moved all over the continent just to find genuine love

    you should explore what really are your constraints, other people or is it something internally you need to address instead of blaming others for your perceived situation of deprivation. If you lived in eg Russia right now as a gay man irrespective of your genetic make up, you might have a bigger heart oh what others really have to contend with

    Maybe start humanising instead of localising

    It appears you are trapped with some very old-fashioned racism ideals

    ...for all those paid membership cancellers,

    you’ll be back

    😂

    good luck with that

    when you actually find a better/ more popular ap that actually delivers, share with one and all

    So you’re an asian in Asia and you don’t like asians

    tough

    ride it out

    don’t be so opportunistically racist. Learn to love the people around you, maybe they’re not all that bad after all, it’s just in your head

    That’s the equivalent of presuming that operations at Grindr should freeze eg during covid, likewise responding to the global pandemic/ with Grindr admin likely presently operating too on skeleton staff, while already customer support service is lame and Grindr members who are out of an income in these uncertain times are now confounded with more and more continual advert-bombing for standard membership

    I asked the car registrations gov dept to suspend my vehicle rego payment or extend coverage period during these uncertain times due to covid, they said no. Even though I’m an integral health services professional

    I asked my bank for clemency on my mortgage when my father died, they didn’t give a rats

    However

    That’s what corporate insurance is for

    In the spirit of solidaritous community, I hope this suggestion is implemented without further compromise impacting quality of service to all members irrespective of those who have income and those who can’t afford paid membership

    Grindrs vision should always be about continual improvement of experience for community as it always was from the outset, not latent predatorial greed mongering

    Note: Grindr’s quality of product and customer support experience has plummeted since its relatively recent Chinese ownership (unless there’s been change and I missed the latest memo)

    Support: “refund through Apple”, per Anonymous’s comment

    This is so cheap and tantamount of fast-scene gay culture, pushing the boundaries of what’s healthy

    If your profile effectively uses its 250 characters, then you’ll attract genuinely interested guys to further compare potential commonalities

    If no one is responding [ within a practical distance ], chances are what you’ve written doesn’t appeal/ you have unrealistic expectations, and/ or you may need to do some self-renovating

    I’m really over this latent “expectancy” mentality, that there’s a piece of meat available 20 meters away every 5 minutes. That’s addiction. Stop expecting others to kowtow to your time-poor and validation melodramatics

    Everyone is at different stages in their life journey and to push fast-scene culture as a one-shoe-fits-all on others really isn’t appropriate

    If you are into specific obscurities, there are specific websites catering to those fetishises etc

    Maybe try Facebook/ Instagram/ Meetup etc for gay social common interest groups in the broader spectrum of total society

    Want to link with gay pole dancers/ specific ethnic gay groups/ gay parrot breeders etc etc, go to Facebook/ Instagram/ Meetup etc etc. Not every gay man uses Grindr

    Guys with blank profiles should be respected too, maybe it’s a big step for them just to come online

    Like honestly

    it’s an individual choice, and leads to something to discuss in direct online conversation

    allow a guy to be concerned about not wanting to associate with people in his own neighbourhood - he could be politely avoiding jerks in his own way

    if you are genuinely keen on a guy than you’ll go the distance

    unless you have an imposition to commuting

    like if you’re in a rural area you’re prepared to do the yards. If you’re in a city or town, the profiles that show on your screen are obviously within a eg 20km proximity; is that all too hard? I think it comes down to laziness and individual cater-to-me selfishness to expect a dude to be within 20 meters away of you, all day long
