Tiny Love Stories: ‘Should I Download Grindr Again?’

Tiny Love Stories: ‘Should I Download Grindr Again?’ | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

‘The Closest Profiles Are Miles Away’ - Finding love is hard. Finding love as a 30-year-old gay man living in his parents’ basement on an Iowa dairy farm during a pandemic is impossible.

Should I download Grindr again? For the rural gays, that’s the best place to meet. But the closest profiles are miles away and they’re usually closeted married men. So I stay away. Lonely on acres of land, I dream of connection. — Jordon Deutmeyer
