Easy to Use
Grindr has the typical feel of any reputable dating app you may use for your exploits. It is notably easy to switch between member profiles and connect with other users instantly. Perhaps because there are fewer members than its heterosexual counterparts, there is more of a community feel here. It is easy to start chats and just as easy to end them with quick blocking features. After signing up and uploading a few photos, it is simple and easy to get connected with other members in your city. The free version of the app does have limited features, and you will be reminded of all of the features that you are missing out on by not signing up for their “Unlimited” version of the app. The free version is without bugs and just as fun as the paid version. That being said, there is increased functionality that might help you stretch the boundaries of what you can do on the app.
Examples of additional functionality with the Unlimited version includes:
Due to the larger per person transmission of HIV in the demographics of men having sex with other men, Grindr provides lots of resources about having safe sex.
While the site doesn’t allow you to search for specific people, it does let you refine your preferences.
Due to the nature of LGBTQ+, the filter functionality may seem over the top for a novice. There are so many different ways people identify themselves, and it’s easy to narrow down your criteria until you’ve found people you have shared interests with.
You can send your location out to other people, which makes meeting up a breeze. Once you are armed with a personalized profile displaying your interests, it will be easy to find what you want.
Browsing is faster and easier than ever with enhanced photo sizes. You can easily scroll through numerous profiles. Usually, the free version offers a broad selection of matches available, but we recommended getting a subscription plan for more advanced users.
Safety & Security
Grindr makes it exceptionally easy to block anyone at any time. It keeps details secure and doesn’t share information of users publicly. You can learn more about safety and security while using Grindr by going on their FAQs on their website and searching for safety tips. Grindr has a good reputation and is well established for a good reason. It has been a trustworthy and reliable vendor without controversy with regards to data breaches, and not even Apple can say that!
One of the best gay dating sites available. It is much more interested in social justice, equal rights, and supporting LGBTQ+ communities. By joining Grindr, you are not just joining a social movement though; you are also joining a user, friendly functional site that has taken pains in making it as easy as possible to get connected to other people with the same sexual orientation in your area.
Be sure to check out their comprehensive tips for safe sex and get out there and start having fun using this site. One of the downsides is that you do get what you pay for, and premium versions of the app are ultimately more functional than the free to use counterparts.
