The Meaning of the "GGG" Acronym on Tinder Is Hornier Than You Think

If you're perpetually single — it's me, hi! — 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. But if you're asking yourself, "what does GGG mean?" know that, yes, it's a little bit more explicit than "Go Girly Girls." For those confused, here's the GGG meaning explained.

What Does "GGG" Mean on Tinder?

Popularized 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 and, with consent, game for anything — doesn't sound so bad, does it? So if you find someone with this in their bio (or you'd like to include it in your profile yourself) this would insinuate that someone is likely DTF. In other words, if you're looking for someone to bring back home to meet your parents, someone who has this acronym in their profile should probably be a swipe left.

Just remember that 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.
