In 1994, the first online dating service named kiss.com was launched. Today, there are about 1,500 dating apps registered on the internet! Doesn’t that sound amazing and ridiculous at the same time? Well, we don’t know about amazing but when these services were launched, people did think of it as a ridiculous prospect.
How could they talk to someone without meeting or seeing them first? However, in a few years, they’ll be able to see the many, many convenient aspects of online dating.
This process was safe and free, with no commitments whatsoever. It was the best alternative for shy or introverted people who wanted to meet someone.
The moment you think that this person is not to your liking, you can easily remove/unmatch them. However, we’d always suggest being clear and straight-up to them since “ghosting” someone is always a bad idea, and you might feel guilty about it for a long time.
And of course, people’s lives kept getting busier and busier, which is why such websites and services flourished. At last, with the pandemic, online dating became the only option for the youth, and here we are today.
If you want are wondering whether or not you can see your conversations with someone on Tinder after unmatching them, read on to learn all about it.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to see Tinder messages after unmatch. We’ll also talk about other related topics, like unmatching and matching the same user again.
If Someone Unmatched You on Tinder Can You Still See The Messages?
For example, let’s say that you shared your contact details with a match without thinking it through. You’re entitled to unmatch them whenever you feel like it but what if they don’t accept your rejection reasonably?
They might go back to your previous chats and use anything you said against you, starting by harassing you in other ways through your contact details.
To prevent their users from going through such harassment, Tinder decided to delete all conversations between unmatched users.
But what if you accidentally unmatch someone on Tinder? It might be a long shot, but it’s undoubtedly possible. Or it might’ve happened due to a system glitch on the platform as well, couldn’t it?
Either way, Tinder will delete all your conversations. You’ll also never be able to match with that person again because Tinder removes the profiles of unmatched users from your account. So, what can you do in a situation like this?
Well, we’re sorry to say that there is nothing you can do to retrieve deleted Tinder conversations.
If this was Instagram or Snapchat, you could’ve requested your data to the platform’s team with your chats intact. However, your Tinder data doesn’t include your chats to protect other users’ privacy.
How to Unmatch Someone on Tinder?
We’ve all experienced that one match where things start off great but get increasingly dull with time. Maybe you realize that you don’t really have anything in common with them. People also like to call it fate and not having a spark. Be that as it may, staying connected to them is only ever going to waste your time, isn’t it?
Well, you don’t need to worry. Like always, we’re here to help you with an easy-to-follow instructional guide on how you can unmatch a user on Tinder.
Step 1: Open the Tinder app on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: At the top right corner of the screen, locate the Chats icon (two message bubbles) and tap on it.
Step 3: You’ll see a list of your chats with the people you’ve matched. Open the chat of the user who you want to unmatch.
Step 4: In the chat, you’ll see a blue shield icon at the top right corner of the screen that is called the Safety Toolkit. Tap on it.
Step 5: A pop-up menu will appear with only two options: Report and unmatch and Unmatch only.
Here, if this user has offended you or has displayed any signs of indecency, go ahead and click on the first option. However, if they’ve been civil, you can unmatch them by clicking on the second option. There you go! And remember, it is nobody’s fault if you feel like unmatching a user. Dating platforms are here to make your dating life easier, so don’t undergo any undue stress.
If You Unmatch Someone on Tinder, Will They Notified?
No, they won’t. Tinder (and all other social media platforms) are very strict about securing their users’ privacy and therefore won’t notify the other side regarding your action.
However, that doesn’t mean anything. There are a couple of obvious indicators that’ll surely make them aware that they’ve been unmatched, the most prominent being that your chats will disappear. We’re sorry to say there’s nothing you can do to change that.
