This morning I cried for the first time in a long time. Although I’m not quite sure why I was crying or what I was crying over to be frank, I was more furious than Anything.
I’ve used the gay “dating” app, Grindr for a while now and it’s been good. Haven’t got much out of it because most guys just want to hook up and nothing much else, which I can respect since it’s their thing. BUT this morning when talking to an anonymous chatter who’s name was the flex arm emoji (💪🏼) we got in to a discussion and he said that he heard from someone else that my “only good attribute is my big dick” and “everything else is meh”. I felt and still feel violated.
I get that everyone’s entitled to their own opinions, but I was shocked. I didn’t know who I could trust or who I could turn to in the community. My “big d*ck” hasn’t exactly seen light of day lately so I was confused by their statement as much as confused to why someone wouldn’t have a picture set as their display picture.
This was the final nail in the coffin for me concerning Grindr. I have no hate towards it nor the People, I just found that for me it wasn’t working out. Clearly someone who didn’t get what he wanted had it out for me.
You can get hate from any social media, I just wouldn’t start to fathom that it would come from Grindr where I was accepted. Should have seen it coming though, it’s literally a slang term for grinding. There are other reasons to why I deleted the app, again it being their choice I have to respect it but I will never understand why a married man would get the “dating” app and cheat. “Where is the love?” (Will.i.am accent).
Then there’s the forwardness. Even though I for one have done this a few times I realized it was not the way to get a “date” or fVck buddy. Sending unwarranted d*ck pics to someone without having a conversation is just wrong and should never happen, no matter how “NSA” they are.
On occasion you even get to see your friends, and as awkward as that is, most of them are the friends who are under 18 years of age yet their profile says 18/19/20. You begin to cringe and swiftly move as far away as possible as it isn’t your issue. BUT as a concerned friend you pm them and let them know that Grindr isn’t really for “dates” nor is it safe for people of that age.
So yes, I’m complaining about a seemingly blatant issue on the interwebs about and app which name literally derives from the word grind. Who knew it would have actual grind only
