GGG: The Tinder Acronym That's Anything but PG

If you’re perpetually single (like myself) and you dabble with dating apps like Tinder, Hinge, Bumble, and more, you probably know that, alongside the opportunity to find and build deep, romantic connections, there’s equal opportunity to find some hookup action, too. And while some people prefer to play a little coy when it comes to what they want out of their sex lives, others just get right to the point. If you’re looking for a potential sexual partner, you may have found one if they have the acronym “GGG” in their Tinder bio. Here’s why.

What Does “GGG” Mean on Tinder?

Popularised on dating apps, “GGG” stands for “good, giving, and game.” It was reportedly created by sex columnist Dan Savage as a way to parse out qualities that make a good sex partner. “Good” means good in bed, “giving” means giving of equal time and pleasure, and “game” means they’re (reasonably) game for anything – doesn’t sound so bad, does it? A good sex life certainly goes a long way in a relationship (and with your health), as does reciprocation and enthusiastic consent. Granted, “good,” “giving,” and “game” are all relative terms, so take someone’s GGG with a grain of salt. Regardless, it’s good someone with GGG in their Tinder bio is being upfront about who they are as a sexual partner. If anything, it’s definitely a good conversation starter.
