Joel Simkhai is a single, gay man living in Los Angeles, and he's the king of Grindr. Well, technically, he's the CEO and founder of the dating app for gay and bisexual men. He created Grindr out of a "selfish desire" to meet more gay men, and he's still a very regular user of his own app. Find out what it's like to be the king of Grindr.

He made an app that turned into an app for whore, gents, daddy, and homeless looking for money minus the actual dating part. Have you notice these people are white and in perfect shape? This is what's wrong with the gay community.
It's a hook up app if you live in or near a college town. Very very few guys looking for a bf. And most are so stuck on themselves. And most are not all they think they are. Lol Then there are the over 40 to 47 48 year old guys that still think they are as hot as when they were 21. A bit over weight with saggy skin around their belly and nothing special to look at Lol They are the sad lonely guys still holding out for the perfect 10 that will never come along. They will not accept the fact they are older now and most guys under 35 are not looking to be in a relationship with someone they have zero in common with.
Invented grindr so that men can hook up and meet, fast fordward and now he is approaching middle age and STILL has not found the one.
Finding THE ONE is not about grindr or not grindr…. it's about being humble, settling down, and accepting that no one is perfect.
Mr. perfect with perfect jawline, chiseled abs, and studly vibe DOES NOT exist.
SETTLE AND ACCEPT THE FACT YOU'RE BEING PICKY WHILE THE CLOCK KEEPS TICKING AGAINST YOU.
I settled down with a guy that was not my physical ideal... Yet I enjoyed his company, I liked his energy, and had good conversations with him. Fast forward 11 years and we are still together and I am happy and he is happy.
If I would had been like my long term friend who can not get out of grindr, and who is continuously being dismissive of guys because of their eyes, they dont work out, they are too short, they have a beer belly and so on. I would be miserable, lonely, and ageing (like he is).
SO BURST THAT LITTLE BUBBLE, AND REALIZE, YOU ARE NOTHING SPECIAL, there Will ALWAYS be some one better looking, younger, and nicer than you… so you better settle like everybody else does, or enjoy being a washed up bitter lonely queen who has fucked so many men , sex is not even enjoyable anymore.
the Truth about Grindr they take your money Block your paid account for no reason they give no refunds there are people buying & selling Drugs underage Kids who use Fake DOB to Join there are prostitutes
I meant my husband on Grindr 5 years ago. We both downloaded it for a day, an we both saw each other. I introduced myself to him first. An he responded back. We ended up texting each other on Grindr for 3 hours. We ended up calling that night. We meant the next day at the beach an after that we saw each other everyday. We both uninstalled the app, an ended up moving in together a few months later because we couldn’t spend one day without seeing each other an he ended up asking me to marry him 3 months later. An this year of 2018 we got married on the beach in Belize on a Norwegian cruise on Valentine’s Day. Come this year 2019 we will be married for a year an will be together 5 years come August. An it was all thanks to Grindr. It’s not just a hook up app like the ceo said, it can be used for dating an you just might meet your future spouse on it like I did 5 years ago. He was 20 at the time, I was going on 22, he’s now 24 and I’m 26. So if used right you might meet your future husband on it. You just never know.
Grindr feeds into the extreme hedonism and narcissism that is ruining the gay community. You will never find anything meaningful on Grindr. To make matters worse, it is absolutely overrun with romance and cat fishing scams, mostly from Nigeria.
I'm so glad they changed the logo and removed those horrible hanibal lectoresque teeth off of the mask. Hopefully maybe later on they'll make the mask even smaller kinda a subtle way in easing men into feeling more comfortable in showing their face. I know alot of us are proud in who we are but not everyone is there yet.
Thank you for making Grindr. The app helps me to find something good but even it has a "negative" thing as well. I apparently confused to most of people that has been using Grindr to find his sex mate even we were know that we have to find it soon. But, most of the time, people trying to find sex and they were thinking that Grindr could be the easier app to find sex. I'd suppose to not agree with people's statement and I believe that everybody is looking for true love not a real sex tho.
Sad as the gay grindr bubble we are fed all the apps have only negative impact in the socialisation within the gay community!Is in our hands to destroy this and all the similar apps, we become more isolated as a social minority instead of blending in, go out talk flirt socialise delete the apps live the real life not the substitute you hold in your hands!
Worst app ever, I've had a few bad experiences on this app and found that it wasn't the best way to meet "the one". Online dating has changed and is getting a lot more easier for people. But this app.is dangerous. Would not recommend it to anyone.
After hearing about it for years, I downloaded Grinder last week. I had a short pleasant conversation with an attractive man the night I downloaded it. He was horny and I was cleaning my apartment. Was not looking to hook up anyway. He had someone else "on the way."
I then got a text from someone who wanted to blow me because he was home alone. He wanted to "mess around."
The next day I got a message from someone a couple hundred feet away who wanted me to "stay close." He was horny too and lost interest after I let him know I was still debating on keeping the app.
During that time I got two random dick pics. Grindr was deleted less than 24 hours after its download.
I was once In Paris, and Grindr hooked me up with Quasimodo. We didn't get it on (it was a Wednesday, and hump day is very busy for him), but he showed me around his bell tower, and it was very interesting.
yea your so ugly and poor and fat, and drive a crap car,...you never met anyone. So you 'invent' find a BJ on your phone. Whoopie! You must have been alone all the time. Didn't see a 'normal/regular' man in that entire video. All the men in the video were the 'typical young' gay gym built guy, that is screwing anything that walks, as long as you are as HOT as they think THEY are.
Theres something very creepy about this: turning "relationship" into a disposable commodity like Kleenex. Putting technology at the service of the gay male habit of always looking for "my new future X-boyfriend" (or X-husband). He makes a very telling remark @ 1:10. He says, "All we have is our bodies, right?" Grindr is the end result of a (gay? LA?) view of life as nothing more than a collection of bodies. Sad. Sad. Sad.
he is such a sweet heart and im glad he tries to be inclusive by including ethnic minorities in his advertising practices. I know it's hard to include everyone, but he tries and i appreciate that . i don't use grindr anymore, its hard meeting normal people on it but it's nice to see there are other guys out there i guess
Joel simkhai . . . . . . this is the first time I see him and heard his name, and this is the first time I watch his video but his face looks familiar like I've seen him before, but I don't know where is it. maybe he has a vlog or show up in someone vlog? I dont know but its feel weird lol I Know Grindr but I don't know much because I never use it.
