    It's not just Grindr really..but I have noticed something odd happening online lately. It goes like this:

    Him: Hi
    Me: Hey
    Him: How's it going?
    Me: I am doing great...thanks. How R U?
    Him: Good...You are really handsome!
    Me: Thanks..so are you?

    What follows is we have a very nice convo, exchange other pics, and talk about mutual interests. Then all of a sudden they will take the slightest little word, phrase or sentence out of context and react like they have been insulted. Since this has never happens to me in real life...or least not to this extent...I wonder..WTF? Am I just being toyed with by some troll?

    I'd appreciate hearing if this kind of thing is common.

    Was he white?

    Maybe you should have immediately called him a potato, or something. I feel like if someone called me that it would make me feel how he made you feel, which is burned. He should know how he made you feel. It's fighting fire with fire, but you don't have to put up with assholes who would say that to you.

    It seems possible that these types of situations leave you wanting to lash out at the community, but you could also just treat assholes in kind.

    You seem cool. I'd like to see you showing pics and having a good time. Fuck the assholes.

    When I used to use Grindr my normal conversations were:

    Him: Hi.
    Me: Hi, how are you?
    Him: Horny

    Or the normal yet slight creeper type:

    Him: Hi, how are you?
    Me: I'm good, how are you?
    Him: I'm good thanks, what are you up to?
    Me: Not to much (Say what I'm doing) How about yourself?
    Him: Not much. You got any pics? (OR) You hung? (OR) You horny?

    I used to either ignore them, or just make a fun conversation out of it. I even turned one guy into a friend. But now just can't stand it.

    I like to think of Grindr as a chaotic whirlwind of interest and disinterest. Regardless of who you are or what you look like, it's completely up to chance whether someone stays interested in you or not. No matter what you do or say.

    I don't think this counts as a phenomenon. People have lost interest in each other for millennia. Using an app like Grindr just speeds up the process.

    Hottjoe I can't help but cringe a bit at your "empathy" lol. Grindr bitch wanted to be bitchy cuz he was offended that his pic needed "approval" by an Asian, simple as that. Tons of grindr douchebags fear losing the upper hand. Ur charity case cared less than u did icon_lol.gif

    Are you trying to shame me for caring about something someone posted?icon_confused.gif

    Aqueerius gave me some insight recently on another unrelated thread, and he's been on my radar as someone who seems interesting. When I saw this thread I thought maybe the grindr incident had pissed him off, because it was pretty rude, and my advice was to call the guy a potato. But instead I'm just going to call you a potato, because you're rude -- and drunk by the looks of it.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Well, I wasn't trying to be patronizing. I just wanted to write more than some one liner, and I told him how I would feel if someone disrespected me like that.

    If someone is trying to make me look stupid or feel small, I don't shy away. It's not because I care what they think. It's because they can't get away with it. My advice I gave him was advice I give to myself.

    Edit: btw, I don't see that as some tiny insult. Maybe you better rethink that.

    I removed my pic and all information from my Grindr yet I still get the same number of messages. It seems like there are quite a lot of guys who are up for messaging a blank profile but I am not sure why...
