When You’re On Grindr But You’re Also Hangry

The eternal question: Sex or pancakes?

In the eight-plus years since Grindr debuted, the app has seamlessly woven itself into gay male culture. Where once it was strictly transactional for the purposes of getting laid, guys are now comfortable having casual conversations—sometimes just for the sake of chatting.

Need proof? This adorable exchange between a famished dude and a local with a good suggestion for some grub.

Did this conversation lead to a hookup—or at least a brunch date? We’ll never know. But if someone figures out how to merge Grindr and Seamless they’d make a fortune.
