    Be honest, how many of you have it on your phone?

    How many times have you hooked up?

    or befriended a guy?

    Do you like it or find it pathetic?

    Forgot to add, are there lots of hotties in your neck of the woods or not?

    Me I've only hooked up twice, befriended one guy. I like it, is fun to flirt and goof around with other gay fellas. there are few cute guys, nothing to die for unfortunetly

    LOL. no. I don't even have it since it is not compatible with my phone.

    Would I get it? No. My goal (monogamy) will most likely not be fulfilled by it... so it would be useless for me to have it.

    I have it but don't expect much from it. Just like any online profile I have. Having said that, however, I did hook up with one of the hottest guys to walk the planet off of grindr.

    I'm glad you brought this topic up. Since more and more of us have iphones, ipads, etc., we are more likely to do our 'social networking' on the go via mobile technology. It's surprising to me that since GLBT folks are on the cutting edge of technology, and let's face it - had it not been for technology, the GLBT community would have had a much more difficult time organizing together. The big daddy of gay internet socialization, gay.com, has failed miserably as far as evolving to this, similar to AOL in 1996-97 when the chat rooms were kinda fizzling out. I would have expected gay.com would have been one of the first to develop an interactive app for ipad/iphone/droid/blackberry platforms.

    So now, the gay male community, which in the big picture, we aren't a very large market. Is there no money to be made for a 'good' gay social networking app to be developed? How about something other than Grindr or basically a bathhouse on your mobile device...some of us really want to meet other gay guys to date and get to know. But it doesn't help that this small percentage of gay men out there are split up among 10 different apps that aren't very good. I don't really like monopolies, but in this case, where gay men make up such a small percentage of society, I'd like to see a 'go-to' mobile site where we can get to know each other that's actually GOOD rather than the half-assed ones that may or may not be around in a year.

    Maybe we should come up with one!

    Oh well...happy Easter guys...

    If you want a bunch of fat old creepy guys to send you dick pics, Grindr is great...

    I did meet a very nice guy visiting from Boston. I'm not much for anonymous hookups, so we just went out to dinner and watched some basketball together. He visits regularly for work, so who knows.

    I deleted it after a couple of days.

    Around me it seems like only 19 year olds and 50 year olds with 150 extra lbs had grindr.

    I have it on my phone. Never hooked up with it, but it's good when you're bored. I've met a few decent guys on it - a few that I go out with every once in a while for drinks.

    Yeah I used to. 2 guys I've hooked up with
    Never befriended anyone. I have friends that have it so that doesn't count
    Other than that, I get bored with it easily so i took it off my phone.

    I have a user account.

    I have never used it to hook up. Even though I had an unsolicited offer I was considering while I was in Portland.

    I have made some "friends" on it but they are the lousy sort of friends that only want to drink at a bar, never do anything culturally stimulating and non-alcoholic.

    Generally I find the options to be a bit low quality - like manhunt. In four major metropolitan parts of the country I have been in over the past few months I have not come across any serious investment potential - but I still keep logging in to the app when I get bored. At worst: some of the profile text amuses me.

    I have it and have made a couple friends but I won't hook-up with them... just chat or meet for coffee....

    P.S.... I may use it to chat, but I never trade "X" pics with anyone there.

    I had it on my phone but I deleted it. I hooked up with one guy I was nervous the whole time. He seemed like a nice guy but after I felt kind sleazy and I uninstalled it. As for friends no any kind of dialogue with another guy ended up with trading pics. I can see how people would enjoy it but its not for me. The guys in my neck of the woods looked hot though.

    Yep. Log on daily (if not every couple of hours) and I use it every once in a while when I need a relief from studying

    My Blackberry isn't compatible with it, but then again when I see the guys at the bar staring at their phones and then looking up and scanning the bar while on Grindr...I realize that I'm kinda glad I don't have it.

    I have it and I´ve used it quite a few times icon_biggrin.gif Of course there are creepy people who send you images that somehow have burned their way into your brain but that can basically happen anywere. So just ignore them.
    Anyway, I have made some good friends via grindr and also some regular chat buddys. Not everybody on grindr is looking for sex, but if you want it you can have all the sex you want without much complications....icon_razz.gif

    Its like a gay bar on the go, some people date on it, some people hook up, some people waste your time.

    I like it, had some of the best hook ups in my life, and I have also dated a guy off of Grindr. There certainly are some hotties on it.

    Honestly, I've never visited the site and I don't have it on my phone. It doesn't interest me in the slightest. If it's not immediate and tangible, it's phantasy -- and of no use to me. I mingle and hook up in broadly diverse environments, but always in the real world.

    Have it. Never hooked up with anyone from there. Met a couple of cool friends though.
