Meet the Instagram account looking to help you quit Grindr.
It’s no secret that while gay dating/hookup apps can help us find a quick lay, or maybe even a date or two, they also can be very detrimental to our mental and emotional health.
This isn’t true only with Grindr, but with all apps used for finding other gay men to fondle and befriend.
A recent study found that men who used dating apps like Tinder were more likely to have self-esteem problems and body issues (a fact we already knew years ago).
But one Instagram account says enough is enough.
The Instagram account called Quit Grindr, is aptly named to let us all know that we don’t need the gay app or any apps like it.
The idea behind the account is to send positive reinforcements regularly and to tell us that we are better than the app makes us believe and act.
As the account’s description states, “You didn’t come out of the closet to get stuck in a matchbox.”
And every post on the account reinforces that idea.
