Can you really find a friend/Boyfriend?

Or is everyone basically just messaging you for sex?

it is a quite difficult question, because we cannot say that there is no chance there. but we should say there are a lot of guys who are just for sex there..

i have two friends and they met each other on Grindr... so who knows... Cheesy

I met my ex on grindr and we were together for 2 ½ years but I found he was cheating and back on grindr meeting other guys so I don't know. You would need to establish trust.

It's possible to find some chat/hangout buddies on there. Sexual relationships, sure. Boyfriend? That might be a stretch. It's not impossible, but I honestly don't think it's likely. Grindr is predominately a hook-up app and I would imagine most of the guys using it are looking to hook-up. I used it briefly and found some cool guys to chat with, no boyfriend material though. YMMV

If you are clear in your profile what you are looking for that should weed out the ones just looking for a quick fuck. you're going to get less hits and replies of course.

dating/hook-up apps are just a tool, people used to (and still do) say the same thing about clubs that you're only going to meet casual hookups but plenty of people find more there too. it's all about putting out what you want to get back.

Most guys on Grindr are just looking for sex, but that doesn't mean you can't find relationship material.  I met my ex on bearwww, and we were together for over two years.  I also met some good friends on there and similar sites.  You just have to deal with a lot of horny guys inbetween.

If you are clear in your profile what you are looking for that should weed out the ones just looking for a quick fuck.
Oh, if only that were true.  There are so many guys who either don't read your profile, or do but decide to hit on you anyway.  And then you get the ones whose profiles say they're only looking for friends, not interested in sex, and then their second or third sentence is an indecent proposal.

Well it's like going to a graveyard to meet the living. Sure you might find the odd breather, but it's main purpose is for the stone cold dead. Hook-up apps - their main purpose is no strings fucks.

I don't know what's wrong with talking to people IRL. Most of my friendships and romantic relationships have come from real life meetings. Again it all comes down to getting from it what you put it. If people hit you on grindr etc and you say "hey great, let's meet for a coffee and a chat" - well they'll either say "yeah let's do it" or they'll break their cover and show they were only it for a webcam wank or whatever. Either way it's your job to weed them out, no one said it would be easy.

No. Grindr was intended for hook-ups and that is the only thing it is good for.

Can you really find a friend/Boyfriend? Or is everyone basically just messaging you for sex?

We live in a cosmopolitan society where the distinctions and definitions of what a traditional friend/boyfriend is or does are constantly being altered to fit people in better ways. The belief that someone who you have sex with is someone who cannot also be a friend or boyfriend is a belief that is quickly being outmoded.


I don't know what's wrong with talking to people IRL.

More than a century ago people's social communications IRL were augmented with non face-to-face communications like the writing of letters. Letter writing is just an archaic form of text messaging, or using an app like grindr, in the sense that people communicate by use of writing (or displaying) words which are then read by the other person.

Owing to the primitive state of travel available to people living in a world before the invention of the combustion engine―a world where travel to distant places took many arduous months―a large portion of many relationships historically did not occurr IRL face-to-face but rather were cultivated and nurtured through text without people seeing each other at all for long lengths of time.

Many of these relationships flourished without the supposed need for face-to-face contact. Im my estimation this does not lend much additional benefit to the social relationship developed IRL as opposed to the one developed online. Both are quite possible and successful ways of interacting with others.

I've found tht recently there's a lot of bots tbh and the only two dates I ever went on that originted from ending didn't go well but that's a limited pool of experience admittedly I don't know I guess it's possible never personally known anyone in my life to be.

I would be inclined to say that it definitely is possible, for the right person in reality could be lurking just about anywhere. That being said though, I would be willing to say that the chances of actually making a working relationship happen from an app that is primarily targeted at being a hook-up site while possible, aren't really all that likely.

I think you'll find letter writing is a LOT older than that mate!  Cheesy
