Rejecting people on Grindr is one of the most debated issues regarding the popular dating app.
Some just ignore people they’re not interested in, others try to be polite, while some are just plain rude. But is there a better, “clever” way to reject people you’re not interested in?
This guy on Reddit, has a very unique tactic for rejecting people he doesn’t want – and it involves getting the other side to… reject YOU.
Just wanted to share a tactic I’ve used to deal with letting guys down easy. I have a body pic as my main photo, and then I have two separate face pics:
1 is recent and accurate, but the other is extremely unflattering and was taken with a shitty camera.
Whenever a guy I’m not into messages me, I send the 2nd face pic, and I get blocked without fail. So everyone is happy.
One of the commenters suggested his own, similar technique:
If I’m not into them and they’re a bottom, I say I’m a full bottom. Blocked every time.
Though at least one guy was wondering why go into all that trouble in the first place:
Why even bother if you’re not interested in the first place? There’s no moral obligation to send someone you are not interested in a face pic in order to “let them down easy.” It’s a dating/hookup app. Rejection is part of the game.
The question remains, then – is it rude to just ignore people you’re not interested in?
