Ever wanted to bag the founder of a tech startup that might be worth billions of dollars some day? Well, if you're gay and have Grindr, the ubiquitous gay cruising iPhone app, you're in luck. You can find the founder of Grindr slutting it up on the black and orange screen just like the rest of you.
In an interview with my spiritual Siamese twin Michael Musto, Grindr founder Joel Simkhai says that he's met guys on Grindr and done "all sorts of things" with them. We know what that means, queen! Here's the juiciest part of the interview:
Musto: Do you use your own product?
Simkhai: Always! I'm on it all the time. I've met lots of guys and made some good relationships and dated and had friendships.
Musto: So you've hooked up from it?
Simkhai: I've met all kinds of people and have done all kinds of things.
Musto: Hmm. Are you looking for a boyfriend?
Simkhai: I don't know. Can one look for a boyfriend?
Musto: Absolutely. I've done it my whole life.
Simkhai: I can't say I believe in searching for love, or you'll end up with the wrong situation. Relationships are a lot of work. To make it worth it, you have to find the right person, not force it.
Always on Grindr, quick to meet up, not looking for a boyfriend. So typical to be cliche. After all, Grindr is full of assholes. This one might be harder to land than we originally anticipated.
