If you met in an app and you’ve been texting, should you block the other person from seeing you using the app since nothing is exclusive yet or is that weird?

Firm motto that it’s only weird if you make it weird. Blocking makes it weird because it shows that you’re still in the playing field (nothing wrong with that) with the added bonus variable of showing the other person you don’t feel comfortable being 100% honest with them and have to hide that fact. Own up to the fact that you aren’t exclusive yet and that there’s nothing to hide. They can’t fault you for not keeping all your eggs in one basket. Plus, there’s the upside that if you don’t block them, maybe they’ll see you’re online and try a bit harder 😉.

Personally, it annoys me when you go on a date with someone and 10 min after they’re on Grindr or whatever. But, then so am I 🤔 Or you text and they take forever to respond, but oh, looks like plenty of time to Grind haha.

Be open and honest. Talk. Hiding is dishonest- that always comes to light and is not a good start and never ends well. Why chance introducing trust issues? Until the discussion to be exclusive we should always assume they are still in the field. Though if you think this is something you want to give a chance, get off the app for real and give it the time, attention and respect it deserves. Behave in a manner consistent to how you would like to be treated and with where you want it to go. If it’s just a hook up be honest. If you want it to develop then take the time to do so without an app.

Don’t block him. It looks super sketchy if you do and becomes a possible red flag

honestly. whatever. my boyfriend of 3 years tells me about all the boys he hooks up with. even shows me their pics and lets me scroll through his chats. but he blocked my grindr profile for no real reason. and i find it hilarious.
