Online dating my area
If something goes wrong, it’s also easy to report or block accounts — though there are a limited number of blocks for free users, which is a serious turn-off. Free users only get to see 100 profiles in their area and are limited in other parts of the app too.
The first, Grindr XTRA, allows you to see up to 600 profiles in your area, view only people who are online now, strips out ads, and other upgrades for $20 a month.
If you want the best possible experience, then there’s Grindr Unlimited, which has no limit on the number of people you can see, lets you see who’s viewed your profile, and browse in Incognito mode.
With that out of the way, you’ll be able to start seeing who’s in your area.
You can favorite people if you want to speak to them later or just really like them, and you can even browse other locations — perfect if you’re heading somewhere else for the weekend, or want to make some new friends before a big move.
Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo).
