Grindr has a variety of different preferences you can set in the “Expectations” section to let other users know what you’re looking for and what types of connections you’re open to. This section includes three fields: I’m Looking For, Meet At, and Accepts NSFW Pics.

“I’m Looking For” allows you to highlight what types of relationships you’re open to. You can select as many as you’d like.

“Meet At” allows you to specify where you’d be comfortable meeting other users, whether that be at your place, their place, or a public place.

“Accepts NSFW Pics” refers to whether or not you’d feel comfortable receiving a “not safe for work” photo (I’m sure you can imagine what that means!), and you can clarify whether you’d rather not receive them at first or simply not at all.

Once you’ve finished setting your preferences, you can begin browsing profiles. Before browsing, you’ll have the option to set basic filters like age and tribe, or more advanced filters like who’s currently online, who has face photos, or where they’re open to meeting, based on your membership tier.

“Nearby” shows you users who are-you guessed it-nearby!
