    So I saw this when I opened my app earlier today. Anyone know anything or try it out yet?
    I'm not a paying customer so I doubt I will see too much....

    The Match feature is stupid. It's basically the Global tab, but in a Tinder like format. It doesn't even match up the type of guys you're looking for, and none of them are local. It only matches based on what you're Looking for.. Friendships, NSA, Networking, etc. This new feature is a total FAIL.

    I would gladly pay for the Premium subscription if it had a true match maker capability.

    Manually update your app. This new version was pushed out yesterday.

    I can't figure out how to do that. I click on Release Notes, then click on 4.7016 but it doesn't give an option to update.

    Are you looking for it in the right place? It's at the bottom ribbon beside "Browse" and "Settings". A sign that you have the update is that in the Global menu, the 'Who wants to meet you' feature is missing.

    this is an auto-fail because it still doesn't overcome the main shortfall of apps here in New Orleans...the dating scene sucks regardless and men are either gross and self-righteous or hot and complete assholes.

    It sounds nice, and I'm happy to see at least one gay app trying to make strides for LTRs, but I would have to try it out myself before giving a final verdict...

    It looks like one needs to pay to use that feature. I signed for the free service and learned a new term.... Daddy Chaser.

    Well, since I don't like facial hair or body hair, I don't think I'm going to be a devotee of this site anytime soon… to each his own, but it won't be for me…

    It's really not. Grindr is ALL about hookups. Scruff is a mixture of guys looking for sex and a lot of guys who are actually looking for more. I've gotten many dates from Scruff.

    Same. The guys are a lot nicer on scruff, from my experience. Of course there are the random weirdos. And the Grindr rejects that have been making their way to this app. Ugh.

    Give it a shot. Not all the guys on there are hairy. There are lots of daddy chasers on there too. I think you'll do fine. icon_wink.gif

    pazzy saiddon't get why folks are worshipping these apps or treat it like it's vital to their survival. to tell you the truth, i find it really hard to take a lot of people on those apps seriously BECAUSE i DOUBT that any of these guys are the same way offline like how they try to present themselves on there. it seems like more faking, impressing and folks trying to stroke their ego if anything. don't have time to deal with that shit. don't have the patience to engage in high school shit. save that for the kids.


    I really don't see how you manage to get out of bed in the morning. It seems you view everything in life as shit. And I don't see anyone "worshipping" these apps. They're a tool to meet people. Nothing more. And I've met some fantastic guys from Scruff. But you'll never meet anyone, app or no app with that negative attitude you have.
