About

Grindr Screenshots refers to a series of screenshot conversations from the LGBTQ+ dating app Grindr, often shared on social media for humorous purposes. The funny and awkward interactions have been used as content ever since 2011 on Tumblr, gaining several meme pages on Instagram, and Twitter / X over the years dedicated to sharing the dating conversations.

Origin

Grindr is a mobile dating and social networking application launched in 2009 that serves as a matchmaker for LGBTQ+ users within close proximity. One of the earliest found screenshots shared for humorous purposes was uploaded on the Douchebags of Grindr[1] blog on July 3rd 2011. The post titled "SELF-LOATHING ARAB DOUCHE" (shown below) features the profile of a man on the app that says "Don't be gay," which amassed more than 90 reactions and 20 comments in 12 years.
