Great app/ met my boyfriend on this app.

I would like to review grindr. I will be explaining my thoughts and how I feel about it.
So when I first found this app I was in my dorm on my college campus, when I first opened it and set it to my current location, I got many people on my college campus. I dated one guy who goes to my college who was on here (the relationship didn’t last). However, I’m on medical leave now and when I came back to my residence state. I found my now current boyfriend on here. When I first met him (not in person, I mean on the app) we talked non stop everyday, but he wasn’t ready to date. I was okay with that as I just got out of... well not fully toxic, but partiality toxic relationship. I was not ready to date either. But when it was February 2020, me and my current boyfriend got together after talking non stop from December 2019-February 2020. Now I’m very very happy that I used this app. Although I keep getting random male bottom pics from random dudes. It doesn’t let me stop from using the app because I also like having/making male friends. I currently use the app for that now that I am in a very happy relationship. I would like to thank the developers for making this wonderful app for LGBTQ and non LGBTQ males. As well as making this app so I met my boyfriend. Thank you so much! 🙂

Does Grindr even investigate real reports?

Where to start.... I was banned for absolutely nothing. After making an account and only using it when I wanted to pass the time, I logged into the app to find out that I had been completely banned. I know this had been a mistake because I had not violated the Community Guidelines (no talk of drugs, personal “services”, impersonation of other people, etc.). And so, as anyone else would, I tried to appeal my situation. Hours later I got a message saying that my ban would not be lifted. I requested that I be shown or told what I had done to get the van in the first place and I was messaged again saying that Grindr reserves the right to ban ANYONE for ANY reason without question? I do not understand how that is fair or reasonable in any way when I, a subscriber, have paid my own money to be on this app. I am banned for no reason and I can’t even get an explanation for it? I even tried to create a new ticket (since after I was told that Grindr would not give me the right as the consumer to explain and go into full detail of why I had been banned in the first place) and the same automated message was given to me no matter what I asked or said.

There needs to be a better way for Grindr to thoroughly investigate each case that people open because I have lost many potential dates and friends due to this ban and cannot even make a new account.

Sad & Frustrated

I have used this app for nearly seven years without incident. As someone who struggled with his sexuality, this app has provided a desperately needed outlet for finding my place in the gay community. I have met friends and even two boyfriends on this app, as well as countless amazing people.

About a week ago, and seemingly out of no where, my account was suddenly “banned” for no apparent reason. I was certain it was a mistake and contacted Grindr support for clarity. The support on this app is automated, and was completely useless. I respectfully asked to have a dialogue to resolve the issue only to be met with automated responses with no level of care or concern on their part. I have tried to contact the support team on a few occasions over the past few days with the same result each time, ultimately saying they have the right to refuse access to anyone for any or no reason. One of the automated responses seemed to imply I advertised drugs...(!!!)...I have never done a drug in my life! I use the app for the most purse purpose. For all that exists in the world of Grindr, I am truly at a loss as to how a guy like me (respectful, genuine) could be refused access. As silly as it sounds, this app meant a lot to me and gave me an avenue for self discovery which would have gone unfounded without it. I am just really sad and frustrated with the lack of support from Grindr.
