Hey, everyone! I just had a strange experience on Grindr and I’m wondering if anyone has experienced something similar.
I was on Grindr, just doing some regular browsing. A profile without a picture, but with some details, messaged me. I asked him for a pic, and he sent one, along with details of his location. Given that he was sending me his location details, I assumed that he was interested in having sex. I was not looking for sex, so I blocked him. Then, maybe 1 minute later, I got a call from an unknown number.
I picked up the call, and it was a dude with an Eastern European accent, and he said “why did you just block me? That was very rude.” I immediately hung up the phone. Another call came in from an “unknown number,” and he left a voicemail saying “that was rude twice to block me on grindr and to hang up on me, [bey5ever]. Wow. I’m going to call you one more time and you’re going to apologize ok?”
Luckily he did not call again. However, I’m very weirded out. I have never met that man in my life. My number is not on my profile. Has anyone experienced something similar? I tried to use my googles but nothing came up. For now, I’ve disabled my location on my phone.
