    Since I've only been 20 for only a month now, I rarely get on this Gay app that I thought would be for dating but noticed it was mainly hookups. I'm the mature emotional type of guy. I don't play games, doing one night stands, or even FWB and just wanting a realationship. It's just childish. I mean it's okay for a guy to hookup with 1 guy but come on, with 3 or more? I see why they don't care about themselves nor their health.

    You read their profile saying I'm down to earth guy that loves meeting people and then some weird 34 dude send me a pic of his dick and said "Let's Fuck" and just BLOCKED him with no hesitation.

    I've seen guys saying "no fems", no blacks, no asians, & only tall guys only with 6-pack abs or toned.
    If they're looking for friends or a relationship, how come they say, I'm bored, horney or better let being a hypocrite? Geez. It makes our Gay Community look bad and I do get hated by a lot of guys but also hate some of them based on how they act or wanting to get into my pants. My area doesn't get some support here in Phoenix so most guys I've met are quite shallow and not really polite towards other gays that may be different or not as appealing. I'm usually alone all the time but preventing myself from being rejected or hurt by other men that may lead me on and being flakes.

    Also, I got my phone stolen from a guy once when I met him at night along with his friends dropping me off and seen him at a Walmart not too long which was frustrating. One more thing I also have to say is that most guys on there does 420 which isn't my thing and usually are on the weird side but that's me.

    Not on Grindr, but on other apps. I've given up. I just browse to look at the eye candy. Too many flakes, creeps, and bogus profiles.

    Think I'm gonna switch back to the real world and join some local sports clubs to socialize.

    Yeah same here as well but not talking much online since it's not my thing and I'm usually out and about for my walks for exercise to get out there and trying to forget about the media once in a while.

    Never been there, honestly. I've heard varying things, however.

    I met and fooled around with a local Older muscular man that didn't mind I was overweight. We then dated for a while

    Oh you. icon_lol.gif

    @OP - What's funny to me are the regulars. I don't know, you'd think after a while the "I'm looking for friends only, no hookups" crowd would find some kind of consistency and delete the app..icon_smile.gif

    Given when I message a few of them, they ask if I have any more pics, I oblige, they compliment how good looking I am, and never respond to me again, but I still see them on there..icon_rolleyes.gif

    I've used it off and on. So I would say just be aware that some guys posted pics from 10 years ago when they had about 28% less body fat than they do now. And if you actually do want to date someone you meet there I'd make it really clear that that is your intention and see if that's really their intention, too.

    I've only met 2 guys on there since I DL the app. One was a cute, 25 yo something guy. I liked him in the beginning and then he stopped texting me. Another guy, he used a fake 6-pack younger photo and asked me to come to his hotel. (Like an idiot, I did) Only to find out that he was a lot older, out of shape and kinda bald. I sorta called him out on his photo then he got really prissy/bitchy at me. Anyway, lately, I have like random guys sending me their cock pics and phone numbers. I'm like **Really, is this spam or you want me to do what to your d?? icon_lol.gif I seriously need to delete this app.
