In 1994, Andrew Conru created the first online dating site, WebPersonals. After selling that site in 1995, he launched FriendFinder.com, an early social networking site, in 1996. Days after the site went live, Conru found that people were posting naked pictures of themselves and seeking partners for adult-oriented activities. As a result, Conru started Adult FriendFinder, which he described as "a release valve". FriendFinder has since established other niche dating sites, including Senior FriendFinder, Amigos.com, BigChurch.com, and Alt.com.

Due to this, the people at Grindr decided to bridge this gap and help people with a bit more exotic sexual preferences. Another big issue could be safety and privacy, as people with different sexual orientations may be under threat in some environments and this app can help them get in touch with each-other without facing any risks involved in public dating.
