Grindr is basically Tinder with a different demographic. Both serve the same purpose, though.

Too much about this story - people get ripped-off all the time.

All this suggests, is that the website has poor checks and balances to help mitigate such exchanges ... I bet if the police asked the website for details on the exchange (names, ip addresses etc), they will say 'no'.

It would appear the website doesn't really care about their users by not seeking such details and having security / safety checks.
All that's happening now, is that we are just prompting / marketing the site in question.

We need to finger point the problem to mitigate it:

I highly doubt monroe is a MOTT, and wonder what the point of his posting the DailyGrind post was. I for one agree the pervasive Racism/Classism/Agism etc. on Grindr is beneath my community.

I think this quote from Matt Lewis/Huffpost Gay Voices says a it all about Grindr "Is Grindr becoming our millennial cocaine?" Read the rest here - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/matthew ... ruining-my_b_3647629.html

To each his own... In my world a date is An activity between 2 mutually attracted people which very often ends with both leaving sexually satisfied.

What kind of "date" takes place at 2 am?


The kind where you know you're going to get lucky. You do know what Grindr is, right?


Yes, and it is not a "dating website" as claimed by the article nor is this scenario what anyone pictures when they read the headline.


Of course Grindr is a dating website. What are you talking about?


It is clearly primarily a hook up site where men go to have sex with men. This is different from dating. There are no real "dates" that involve meeting someone at 2 am and going to their apartment.

Frankly, I think it's insulting to gay people to call it a dating website. Talk about reinforcing negative stereotypes. You'd think the bar would be set higher.


Why is it different?


It is different in the same way that cruising the Parkway rest stops and finding someone is also not a "date." Surprised this needs to be explained.

At 67, I may be the oldest poster, and I wouldn't be embarassed. It's that attitude that allows people like this criminal to continue what he is doing.

Someone using the Internet or an app to meet another person and bang isn't anything new or scandalous. Why should they be embarrassed about reporting a crime? The same thing could happen if you brought someone you just met home from a bar or club.

Date: a social or romantic appointment or engagement.

It does not always include going to a the drug store for a ice cream soda and then to the drive-in. Not everyone is over 75 in JC. Some of us call booty calls dates, just saying.
