What is it about gays and their constant need to be on Grindr every second of every day. I find it hilarious yet frightening that the online age has catered to the gays so well in supplying them with this rather crude app. Now homosexuals don’t actually have to communicate face to face anymore, a click of a button can result in anything these days. Call me old fashioned but where has the romance gone and where has good British conversation gone? Out the window, along with these boy’s respect for themselves.
I myself am slightly biased about the app, as I have a boyfriend and I haven’t had the need to rely on Grindr, but saying that I was once a user of Grindr and I think I was the only person on there who put in my bio that I just want to meet new friends. How naive of me. My ignorance attracted less than polite people who visited my page but their profile was all an act. Grindr is more fake than the tits on Katie Price, you can find some of the top conmen on apps like Grindr. I’m sorry when I had the app for a short period of time I went on a few dates and not a single one of them looked like the man in the photo. The only thing Grindr taught me was how to quickly make an excuse to leave a date.
I will never approve of apps like Grindr because I been there done that got the cringe worthy stories to tell. Now I am older and understand that people’s intentions are not always good, I know that I will never be a victim of Grindr ever again. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a problem with Gays using the app, my problem lies with Grindr giving these men the ability to create a profile that is not a true reflection of the person you end up meeting in the flesh. Surely these men know that they look ten years older than their profile picture suggests? I think some of the men are just playing a game to see what can get away with. I have an idea; Grindr should introduce a feedback system, where if the man you meet does not match up to the profile picture or description then you can give them bad feedback, exposing them as not genuine.
I know that the app is used mainly by people who want a quick fix after a late night, but the whole idea of meeting someone you have never known for sex at the end of an evening just sounds dirty to me. No wonder why the number of gay men attracting HIV is so high. It’s apps like Grindr that are changing societies attitudes towards one-night hook ups and normalising promiscuous behaviour. Once upon a time that sought of conduct was seen as foul play, but now the gay community embraces the rough obscene lifestyle. I am just happy that I am not one of these boys ‘on the scene’ who has to play the game. Even if I were on Grindr, I wouldn’t feel the need to lie about myself. I am happy just the way I am thank you very much.
