    No offense Ste, but it's alot easier for straight people to meet people.
    I have to go to a specific bar or club to know that a guy is gay and I can chat him up. This isn't really convenient for me as I don't like gay clubs and pubs and there are alot of people closeted out there who want to meet someone too.
    Yeah I can see what you mean....

      Yeah I can see what you mean.... the impression I got was that it has this reputation for people who are just after sex with the nearest person to them rather than a relationship though?
      This is exactly what this is reputed for; however, what Plym says still stands. Both valid!

        You should go on a night out with one of my friends! About 70% of the guys she tries to pull turn out to be gay! I'm not sure if they're just saying that to get rid of her ( ) but I am really close friends with a few of the guys she's tried it with now!

          Oh, there are definitely people wanting just sex, of course. There is a block button though...
          My post was more aimed at Ste's 'people just can't be arsed going out' line.

            Yea there are people on Grindr that use it just for hook ups, but there's nothing to stop 2 people on there who want something more than that meeting up and dating etc.

              I have it just to be nosey to be honest. I find the majority of people act like ****s on there because there is an unexpectation about many profiles.

                How restricted is the range? i.e. If I was in Nottingham, would everyone using it within Nottingham show up?

                  The nearest 100 people.. but you can choose an age range for those 100 people if you wish.

                    The 100 nearest profiles to you show up I think.

                      Yeah, + you really wouldn't want to be in Nottingham. Its not got the best people.

                        Even so, I live in such a sparsely-gay area, so my 100 profiles could be from quite a distance away.

                        Unless there's some sort of underground gay scene in Derbyshire that I have not been introduced to yet.

                            Derby people tend to come to Nottingham for a night out; however, I know loads of people in Derby that are gay!

                              Yes, but when I put my age-restricting filters on, I don't think there will be.

                                my trial ends in 4 days! since I'm using it on a blackberry, I have to pay $4.97 monthly, which is kinda lame because it's not something that I'll use regularly and knowing me i'll forgot about it in week!
                                but I'll probably download it again when I get an iphone

                                  less people than grindr but you can manually change your location, for example i usually set my location to Westminister so i can chat to fit people around there because Ilford in london is not good at all except this really cute married couple but they aren't looking for hookups..

                                  I shouldn't even be on grindr/bender/gaydar, i've got a fiance. still nothing beats finding teachers on either one of those and teasing them the next day.

                                        So just out of curiosity I decided to check this out and it's sort of exciting, but terrifying too. Someone 50 feet away from me is online so that means one of my neighbours is gay/bisexual/bicurious.

                                        Some of the "Grindr Tribes" crack me up though. Otter, poz, daddy, leather?

                                        I'll probably just delete the app in a few hours/days though. I appreciate the headless torsos and everything, but this is clearly not my type of thing. #backtothesinglehustle

                                          It's addictive, I used it religiously for about 3 months this year, you meet genuine dates, mates and one night stands on there, it's s complete mix.

                                                Woah, I always thought you were a hetero.

                                                I got grindr a few months ago, the first month or so was pretty slutty but then I realised there's only so many homos in my town that I can sleep with so I've gone off it.

                                                I haven't had any bad experiences on there though, and I've became mates with a couple of guys.

                                                One thing that irritates me is people without a picture. #nopicnod*ck

                                                    ^ @Spartan. There are only so few also in my town who are f*ckable too. Like one morning I met with someone and then later that night that I skyped with another guy from grindr and during our conversation about the guys near us, he said he f*cked the same guy that afternoon. Mess.

                                                    And I use bathhouses, don't judge me. You have to be really picky though.
