Bunnies in my GRINDR!

    So after some deep thought and a long soak in a bubbling pool at a Korean spa...

    I came to the conclusion that I made a douchey post.

    Short version for the five people who may not have read it yet:

    - I download Grindr to my iPhone after like a six month interval where I had deleted it before.

    - Shortly after I logged in and set up my profile, a creeper creeps on me with his profile set to say "40 year old married looking for friends"

    - General creepiness ensues (he was looking for NSA sex) and admits to being 45 and sends me his pics where he looks to be a badly shaped 65 year old guy

    - I troll him man little longer, because creepy guys who kinda lie piss me off.... and then tell him "sorry, not my type" (in essence)

    - I then post screen caps of it here.

    Bad on me for doing that with a private.

    My apologies to you, random creeper guy, for posting our very brief and utterly asinine convo here, and for being a little douchey over something that probably happens over 9000 times a day on Grindr.

    sincerely,

    alphatrigger ;)

    You do look 25, I had that happen to me once, but I did meet with the creep in person, he used a face picture from like 30 years ago, no kidding! I was so mad and he was so out of shape and he said he was muscularicon_neutral.gificon_neutral.gif I was so mad I told him to go buy lube and that we'd go to his place and I left when he went to buy lube, ROFL.

    I did meet with another guy who used pictures from someone else but he was hot in person so I did sleep with him LOL

    grindr worked for me. My bf found me on there (as in he came after me and we became bf's). I've since tried to delete my profile but can't seem to. As I have a great guy now, it doesn't bother me that my pic etc is still on there but sometimes I wonder if I ever get any messages like the one that captured my heart from my guy....

    The only thing that was useful from this whole conversation was the word "meatspace." I shall start using that ASAP.

    It's nice that you at least had the decency to not show the creep's face, though I'm not sure I like the idea of people posting private conversations from Grindr or anywhere else on a public web site. That in itself is a little creepy.

    I agree. While nothign is private any more, some people have absolutely no concept of boundaries and what is not meant to be shared onwards.

    So the OP found someone on the net who was not what he claimed to be - welcome to cyberspace - but as he did not meet he just assumed the guy was in his 60s

    The conversation was as boring as bat shit - and like other guys - I question the ethics of posting it on the web

    Agreed, but I have to say, this conversation could have been copied from one used a thousand times on A4A, Manhunt or a dozen others.
    (not discrediting the OP in anyway... just saying....)

    which makes posting it both tedious and unnecessary and yet still strangely violating of trust. I generally hate it when guys treat conversations between 2 as performance for many (worst on twitter)

    Not sure the point of this thread is, really. Can someone elaborate? The exchange between the two is just your normal cyberspace come-on and rejection that happens millions of times a day.

    And why is this guy necessarily a creeper? He's in the same place as the OP and it just looking to meet people. Are people supposed to join social sites and then say nothing to others? Whether he looks his age or not is irrelevant since you blacked out the face. And, again, people claiming to not be their age isn't anything new or surprising. Same with the marital status

    Reading twitter conversations is the worst, especially when people start to throw in hash tags thinking other people will read their conversations. When you tweet directly to someone, nobody else will see it in their feed, so hash tags just muddle whatever the people are trying to say. The rest is usually abbreviations for other words that aren't usually abbreviated.

    As for the conversation here, I didn't see anything wrong with it, but I also didn't see the guy's profile, so didn't get the full extent of what was lied about. Seems just like any other Grindr-like conversation. I hate hook-up sites.

    Here is hoping MSW doesn't stand for Masters of Social Work. Given the profession a bad name!

    I did have reservations about posting it initially, and on rethinking it I'll probably remove the image links. I realize that was kind of FearTheFall-ish (except I don't plan to keep a Tumblr feed full of these)

    I'm a Grindr newbie, so it probably just took me a little aback that folks would so blatantly misrepresent themselves and/or lie.

    And on his main page he had a blurb like this:

    {some name}
    {some town}
    40
    Looking for Friends
    Married

    Taken at face value, (which tends to be a fault of mine), I really didn't expect that convo which followed.

    I'll probably delete the app in a few days, as most of the traffic I receive on it is hardly the stuff of stellar conversation, though I did have a convo that was worthwhile.

    so what was the point of this thread again aside from verifying that there are guys out there who are creepers and there are equally creepy guys who will tell the whole world about it just to get people to pay attention? icon_rolleyes.gif

    90% of grindr is a lie, everyone posts pics that are at least somewhat fake, most ppl on there lie about at least one thing, it is prolly the skeeveist place to search for a guy, but u r pretty likely ta have some luck if ur lookin for a no standards hookup, i'm kina surprised that grindr is the best app tha gay community can come up with, 100 guys, an only one super restictive pic other wise you gotta pay? C'mon! theres got ot be somethin better. wish i knew how ta make an app, i'd hook us all up fo free

    Grindr takes a great idea (geo positioning gay detector) and fucks it up as much as is humanly possible.

    It is run by a bunch of nuns who don´t seem to understand that a gay man is not going to be upset by seeing another gay man in swimming trunks. They lose messages, are absolutely fucking terrible at customer service and it´s near impossible to remove the damn thing from your phone once it´s on.

    I hope all the people responsible for it die in a plane crash

    the nuns actually work at apple, not grindr. They won't allow any nudity on any application. It's ridiculous. It's censorship at an epic level and it barely gets mentioned.

    As for the rest, yeah, sucks.
