Grindr

Definition - What does Grindr mean?

Grindr is a mobile device application that is geared toward gay and bisexual men. Created in 2009, Grindr is a geosocial network that allows users to fill out a short profile with information about themselves and post a picture. Users can then view each other's profiles when they are within a certain distance of each other. Available information includes a user's age, height, weight, dating status, race, and approximate vicinity. Users can also message each other and chat using this app.

Kinkly explains Grindr

The majority of Grindr users are typically not using this app to find Mr. Right. Instead, many use this app to find new friends with like-minded interests or to find other gay or bisexual men for casual sexual encounters. It is also not unusual for the conversations on Grindr to meander into sexting.

Anyone using Grindr should be very careful not to share too much personal information with other users until they feel comfortable. They should also practice safe sex during casual hook-ups to avoid contracting or spreading sexually transmitted infections.

Quotes

  • On the nights they went to bed at the same time, Rocco would lie there and watch her go to the closet, watch her choose either silky slips or mannish shirts, like running up sex flags from across the room.
