I was going to say 5 stars ,but that’s a lie.

I pay the extra money for the service. Once you do that you basically can never go back to a non pay level ,because whatever they do when you pay it’s worth it. I get 5000 times more responses. I can see way more guys ,and see the guys I want. I could go on ,and on ,and on about what I like. I am clean cut, dress well , modern, I do not look like a farm animal. A bear, an otter , or some critter. Scruff is just not me. I don’t do facial hair. I love being clean, smelling good, looking good. I don’t get fat ,and my body is flawless. I say that to say that I meet my peers on Grindr. Grindr is great for what I use it for. Basically periodically sex. Sometimes I’m bored. When I was lonely ,when I was ready to meet new people Grindr was there for me. Sure a lot of addicts use the service too. So so have to be weary of that. It’s like the app culture. Grindr has a lot of tweekers ,but I like it the very very very best. Everyone else is just imitators. Grindr did it first ,and is the best.

Bad Outweighs Good..By Far

Update: it’s still the same, but now it’s kind of funny.

I’ve never taken the time to review an app, but having been using this one since its inception it seems apt to give my 2 cents: the inconsistencies, lax monitoring and outright biased moderation of profile images, profile content and underage members is outrageous. I’ve personally had it at this point, sick of half my messages not getting through and half messages sent to me showing up on notifications but when I open up the app... nada. On this particular day, though, I’m really, really, really incensed by the discriminatory, inconsistent and offensively undeniable practices relating to profile pictures. I’ve always experienced very, very strict vetting to the extent of images not violating any guidelines rejected; furthermore in the past few days it’s come to my attention that there seems to be an abundance of guys out there that get a free pass and are exempt of certain regulations... without going into detail, it’s very frustrating to submit the same image over and over cropping just a bit more even though there’s nothing to crop as per the guidelines... long story short picture rejected 6 times so far, and they do reserve the right to crop at their discretion yet no... This is bullsh*t. Anyway, I’ll be back to continue this tirade.

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We totally understand that, being the first impression, a profile picture is very important in any social media app. We also feel proud of the diversity in the many different display pictures in the grid, as we know each one has been specially chosen to represent a personality and a lifestyle. All the content displayed in the profiles goes through moderation for approval, and as we have a human team working on that, it's no surprise that there might be mistakes while approving or rejecting a picture. If you feel there's been a mistake, contact us at, our CS team will review this for you :)

So close

You came so close to making a really great improvement. Highlighting previously contacted profiles is definitely helpful. Problem is, it only works on each profile for 24 hours. What’s the point??? Every day you have to double-click on each and every profile in your search to see if or when you’ve already messaged them. I can’t speak for everybody. If I contact someone and they don’t respond, I don’t need to see their profile again. MAYBE after 30 days I’ll message them ONE more time just to see what happens. In my experience if someone doesn’t answer you the first time, they never will. Besides, what lunatic would contact the same person, day after day, without a response? That’s called stalking.

On every dating app and site, there is some way to either delete specific profiles from searches (without blocking them), or easily tell if you’ve already messaged the other user without actually having to click on their profile. What a waste of time! Thank you.
