On Grommr you can specify your location in your profile by entering a city name, zip/postal code, or even an address (don't worry, it will always remain private).
The idea is that the system will translate your location to geographical coordinates to calculate your relative distance to other people.
This way you can see who's close to you, sorted by distance. If you're busy chatting with others and can't respond to a new message right away, that's fine!
