  • I'm sure it's great if you like to be catfished!

    By taylorb2001
    This thing is full of scammers. I can't even tell you how many times it's happened on this app. Of course, if you report someone for doing this, your account will get suspended for no good reason. They, also, block your conversation after a few sentences if you don't pay a lot of money for their membership. So, that's pretty ridiculous. I'm not even sure how the algorithm works, but I know guys that have this that don't show up when standing right beside me. I get the same guys that I find unattractive on there all the time on the "nearby" feed. It's useless. Don't get it. Don't pay for it! It's a huge scam.
  • Needs to be less limited on its tribes

    By rangersierra
    Being an outdoorsy hillier radical faerie, I’m aware how fetish categories on scruff and other apps pretend I and others who aren’t jocks, bears, daddies, etc. don’t exist. I’ve tried to send direct feedback to the developers and they shrugged off my request as it’s not in their interest to introduce other tribes. That’s because fitting into boxes makes us better fodder for advertisers.
  • Better than Grindr except in pricing

    By Ric in Dallas
    I like scruff because they allow you to surf other cities ahead of travel dates. However their pricing is still too high compared to grindr pro so I keep grindr pro locally. As Scruff betters it’s self grindr be ware!
  • A great free App to looking for f, fb,

    By CuteA_72
    I’m not often on the website to hooks up, sometimes I went to Grider chats with someone i always had a great time. This’s a excellent app to meets up
  • Blow me. (They wish)

    By akutekid
    I’m upset because I’ve been paying for this app on and off for over a couple of years now and they let someone report my profile and deleted all my well thought out “about me”. I didn’t say any put downs or hurt anyone’s feelings. Simply stated I do sex work. I’m not here for sex work. Don’t come at me asking for sex and expect to not receive my rate in my reply. I used to live in LA where the $16 a month was worth it and I was hooking up w different tricks on the reg. But I haven’t one single person in the past month from this app since I’ve been living in South Carolina. Not Scruffs fault. But still. I don’t see the value anymore. I won’t be renewing this year. Also. I do porn. I’m well known. I have an image. I don’t honestly feel like I should have to pay since I was a regular user and promoter of the site. Also since Manhunt and other gay apps have offered me free profiles in order to use their platforms. My private album is def worth paying the monthly cost to use the app. But that also sounds very vain of me. And who am I to put a price on the visuals of my profile. I guess I’m upset w Scruff over the About Me thing. I’ll build a bridge and get over it.
  • Better Than Grindr

    By Chumily84
    It may just be the region I live in (N. tip of VA) but the guys just seem to be more raw, real, & intending on meeting. I don’t judge anyone for their taste(s), but I happen to be a guy that likes guys who are “masculine.” Some of my best friends are effeminate men, but My attraction is to manly-men. 😈
  • Doesn’t load

    By DanF79
    Trying to use the app and it’s giving an error today. Not loading. Internet connection is fine as other apps are working just fine.

    Better than Grindr!
  • Sad Social Media

    By hairypothead
    As a paying member, with as many ads as I’m bombarded with, I find it disappointing that Scruff double dips for revenue, but can’t seem to invest in better code development. They’ve banned certain words, regardless of context. We have machine learning that’s becoming ubiquitous with social media apps. This shouldn’t be an issue in 2018. Along with this, the layout is stagnant.
