Enhanced search, using exclude
I'd like the ability to have "exclude those who identify as" in the search options. The search doesnt work efficiently otherwise, as the person could identify as one thing I want very much, but also as something I do not want at all. I'd be looking for those "without" the alternate identification just as much as the "with."
This is supposed to be a social app, primarily for dating, right? Well why can't we blacklist something? Say you're a gay guy or lesbian woman, you could easily find someone... But what if you're like me and you don't work well with transgenders..? You'd find people who have "transgender" in their bio, but you feel bad when you find out that you wouldn't work well with them.
The point is, we're all humans and we don't like or work well with certain things or people, and we need to find what we're really looking for sometimes.
In the "My Type" Filter settings, I have selected female for gender, but I get people showing up in my filtered selections who have selected both female and transgender. I don't have anything against transgender women or men, but I don't need to see their profiles. There must be a way to include "only female" in the option settings.
I can set my type to a specific gender, but if that person includes that gender and something else like, say, Transgender, I'm seeing a lot of people I'm simply not interested in.
A 'Not' option for filters and searches
I wish I could accurately search for other people who are interested in everything except anal
Multi-option search fields such as Gender, Interest, Species, etc. have no way to explicitly filter for one option to never show up.
As a hypothetical example, if you wanted to not show raccoons, and selected everything but raccoons, someone with a racoon character could still show up if they list any of the other species.
When searching, multi-option fields could really benefit from having a third state for each checkbox that effectively means 'never show -any- of these', both in general search, and in the 'My type' filter.
Add a feature to eliminate a user from search. He can still be followed and participate. For privacy minded users, this would add a detorent to stalkers etc...
