  • Better than Grindr, few complaints

    By Thingsyourollup
    I like this app far far better than Grindr, I wish I could just move everyone over to it. My only complaint with the app is that I don’t like being exposed worldwide. The fact that anyone in the world can view my profile has resulted in a lot of wasted time sorting through messages from people thousands of miles away. I would prefer to be isolated more locally, within no more than a 50 mile radius. I like getting compliments as much as the next guy but I don’t like feeling guilted into responding to someone so far away that I will never meet just to keep a high response rate in my insight, nor do I like the rudeness I get from some people when I tell them I’m not interested in chatting due to their distance. The fact that that’s a paid feature is insane. The subscription is way overpriced. I feel $5/month is a much more reasonable price point for this type of paid service.

  • Major Privacy Issue

    By klu leas
    So I’m chatting with someone in the app chat feature, and he sends me a detailed map showing exactly where my house is. I was like...WTH!!???? How the heck did he get my location. Turns out your location is automatically revealed to others. You can either set it to when you use the app, or all the time. But your location will he shown to others while you are using the app automatically. NO THANK YOU. Huge violation of my privacy. Wrote the owner of the app and got back a blanket response that didn’t even address my question at all. If you are on the DL, forget about it.
  • ♥️ Scruff

    By 413RockDL
    It’s easy to use and has features I like. I would highly recommend Scruff and I am on it daily. Side note! The guys on it are normally more rugged and 🔥🔥🔥
  • Sane hairy guys and their admirers

    By Duke Hassett
    Best site from all the rest. Less attitude and guys that are friendly....and HOT. I won’t include myself in the “HOT” category, not a narcissist. Unless someone wNts to call me “HOT”. Then I’m all about that life!! Cheers Men
  • Woof to Wood

    By BarkingPig
    Met Johnny Scruff the other night. What a genuine nice guy. That makes me an even bigger scruff fan. I get laid because of Scruff. I’ve made good friends over the past years. Ones who party and ones who prefer games and dinner at their homes. Scruff and their constant app updates helps to keep Scruff fresh and keeps me connecting to new adventures and cool friendships.
  • Scruff monitoring of the site

    By whyScruff?
    Scruff is becoming famous for “warning”, or removing people for picture related offenses. They have a real problem because I can name three instances where my friends have been removed and scruff has been in the wrong. There is no way to effectively communicate with anyone there, so you just get the nagging feeling that you did something wrong and you know you didn’t. There are many other gay dating apps to use may I suggest trying any of the others. They are unresponsive and do not deserve your patronage.
  • New photo policy

    By Jake03583
    This new photo policy is absolute garbage, and what’s worse is how unevenly applied across users. I can’t help but feel body and slut shamed.
  • Scruff has sold out

    By swimandrun
    A gay app that doesn’t allow guys to post photos in shorts. Have they not looked at the sexualized mainstream advertising lately?
