    100% agree!!

    By limiting profile text, Grindr will always just be a "hookup" app where people judge based only on photos and everybody sounds dumb and crude with one-word descriptions like "Top."

    I'd like to see how well someone describes himself before meeting or messaging him. But as it is now, we're all just barbarians writing one-word descriptions or loading our profiles with annoying emoticons.....

    Grindr has the potential to be both a hookup app AND a community where gays meet to make meaningful connections. If it doesn't evolve in that direction, other apps will fill in the vacuum...

    "I love short profiles. That’s the beauty of apps. I don’t have to read your 1000 page manifesto."

    Hello? No one would FORCE you to read it. You could choose to read it or not.

    Easy solution: After 10 lines have "More..." like they do in other apps and on News articles on the Internet.

    Those interested in learning more can press "More...", those not interested can skip it.This keeps the app presentation clean b/c if the person has written a lot about themselves (more than 10 lines) and you're not interested, you wouldn't need to scroll waaay down to read profile items (height, weight, gender, etc.).

    Simple and could implemented immediately.

    By limiting profile text descriptions (which adds almost nothing to storage data since it's just text..), Grindr sells itself short and limits user connections. Grindr is so much more than just a "hookup" app. To facilitate more meaningful connections, the profile size limit needs to be increased. We need more space to offer more information about who we are and what we're seeking. The current space is extremely limited. With more availability of comprehensive and descriptive profiles on the app, the user experience would improve greatly and the gay community would be much better off.

    Best of both worlds: After 10 lines of profile text description, include a "More..." button for people who want to write/read more. That avoids having to scroll waaay down to look at profile items (height, weight, position, gender, etc.). Not interested in reading a lot about the person? Then don't press "More..." Simple!

    This could be implemented immediately. It's one reason why I'm always on Grindr, but never seem to make meaningful connections with anybody on it..
