Whoops! You forgot to post your own Grindr profile, because of journalism.

@sorry your heinous Is there a reason Grindr is getting text ads for this? Like, some gay thing I don't know about? ("Some gay thing")

Giving somebody a $1000 bar tab and then publicly identifying them seems like kneeing a guy in the nuts as you're hugging him.

I love the fact Grindr's expanding to capture the straight market. Good luck with that. Maybe with incentives like "ladies grind for free (before 11)"?

OkCupid Locals app has a similar feature where you click on the Let's Meet option, but instead of sending an embarrassing and creepy notification it doesn't do anything.
