The US does top one of the data collections: the highest percentage of ‘looking for right now’. It ranks alongside Australia, the UK and Ireland for the highest percentage of those seeking action right away.

Looking at the US in more detail, New York City has the highest percentage of those ‘looking for right now’, while San Francisco has the highest percentage of users with face pics. We guess that’s not surprising given it’s one of the most tolerant and accepting cities in the world. On the flipside, Salt Lake City has the highest percentage in the US of ‘travel only’ users. Honolulu offers the highest percentage of US users who ‘accept NSFW pics’.

Grindr unveiled a new tags system this year, allowing users to search for one another using keywords. The five most popular tags of the year? ‘Vaccinated’, ‘discreet’, ‘kissing’, ‘fwb’ and ‘cuddling’.

For those planning to travel, the cities offering the most Grindr users are: Paris, New York City, Sao Paulo, London, and Los Angeles. The most users by country are Mexico, India, the UK, Brazil and US.
