    Right, so I don't know if it's my phone, or if it's just me. I can send tons of messages to many profiles, and at most got one or two responses. Furthermore, I can be in the middle of a conversation with them and just suddenly stop receiving messages.

    At the same time, I can chat just fine with people who initiate conversations with me.

    I am perfectly aware that it may be that the people I'm sending messages to just aren't that into me, but the sheer number of times I've received no response (or have had a conversation cut abruptly) when I'm the one who initiates it, compared to the steady flow when I'm being messaged, makes me wonder if my phone has anything to do with it. I'm using a rather crappy Sony Xperia L (Android), and my storage space is constantly near-full/full.

    Has anyone else had this problem, with perhaps a similar phone? Or has anyone noticed that after switching to a better phone their Grindr experience became a lot better (more responsive people, less crashes etc. etc.)?

    I found that when I uploaded a photo of myself wearing less clothing, there were less problems with messages not being received. Go figure.

    Grindr is such a failure of an app. They have had over 5 years to optimize its functionality and yet it still can't even load half the time. No idea what Scruff or VGL do to make the user experience so smooth but Grindr could learn something from them.
