    Never had a date from there (in a relationship), but have used it for chat. Let me say, it's very hard to chat on there; most people are looking to meet, which I totally get.

    I only really use it when travelling & bored to look at locals!

    It is hard to find guys near my age on Grindr.

    I dated one guy from there for about 6 months. Very intelligent fellow.

    There's a lot of hooking up action on there that I just decline.

    I see it like having a resume out on Monster. Another way to get contacted and you decide from there.

    Really? You actually get dates from RJ?

    I have had a couple of dates from Grindr, they ended up being good friends.

    I really have a hard time with internet dating. I'm into chemistry and meeting someone in person and feeling the attraction. Anytime I've done it through the internet, it's been disappointing.

    I usually meet people on line now, then tell to to say hi to me if they see me out. Then we go from there and see if there's chemistry.

    Grindr is awesome but you really need to know what you're getting into. I use Grindr when I'm on business travel and I don't know anyone where I'm going. I DO NOT use Grindr to hook up locally. It's a cool app and has allowed me to meet friends all over the U.S. I have an SOP before I meet someone on Grindr, though: (i) no face and body pics (2 of each), no meet/meat; (ii) cell phone numbers must be exchanged; (iii) at least one phone conversation must occur; (iv) meet somewhere public, neutral, and no more than 5 miles from where I'm staying; (v) no expectations of play or sex; (vi) clear understanding between the parties that either or both can walk away. I'm fortunate that I have not had a disappointing meeting with someone I met on Grindr, so my success rate is 100%, and I'm super picky to begin with!

    Kinda shocked you haven't met anyone with some potential through the internet. My Grindr experiences have been pretty good...had a few dates, a few hook-ups and one combo, so I can't complian, lol. I tend to find more relationship-geared dates through ManHunt though. RJ - just making friends or workout advice, that's it and that's cool too.

    My advice for internet dating is "Have no expectations". and that way, you'll never get disappointed. Also, beauty of Grindr...you dont' have to go far to find a potential date.

    My partner and I met a couple of cool guys to hang out with while visiting New Orleans through Grindr. I think it is basically like the net. Good idea to talk on the phone first to decide if you really want to meet and then make sure to meet in a public place.

    I've had four dates from Grindr. All very intelligent people. I was surprised that none of them had talked to each other first.

    Turns out, after I dated them and told them we were better off as friends, they ended up dating each other!

    Who knew!?

    It's been in beta since May/June of last year if memory serves. I was a part of it, but it's still got a ton of issues to sort through.
