What Happens When I Unmatch Someone On Hinge?

Once you unmatch someone on Hinge, there are a few things that occur.
Note that Hinge does not notify or alert them to the fact that you have unmatched them.

Firstly, your conversation is deleted. If the person you unmatched opens up your conversations, he or she will realize that your past conversations are gone.

When you Unmatch a profile from your Matches screen, you will immediately disappear from that member’s view and they will not be able to view or retrieve the Conversation or the Match.

The person you unmatched would also realize that you would no longer be in their Matches on Hinge. To see Matches, head to your Chat Page and scroll through.

If their account is no longer listed here, it means that you have unmatched them, or they Unmatch you.

Unmatching is a permanent action. You will not see their profile again, nor will they see yours.

Technically, if you unmatch someone on Hinge, you, unfortunately, cannot match with them again.

Their profile will not appear in your feed again. You already matched, then unmatched, so Hinge will assume you no longer need to be seeing each other’s profiles.

However, if they decide to delete their account after you are unmatched with them and recreate a Hinge account, they will appear on your feed again.

To avoid them on Hinge, make sure you click the X on their profile so there is no chance you match again.
