Can you rematch with someone on Tinder you had unmatched previously?

Typically it’s confirmed by Tinder that a unmatch works like a block. And blocking on Tinder is permanent. So rematching someone you have unmatched earlier is impossible unless you delete your profile and create a new one.

While re-registering, try to use the same name and details you have used previously. Creating a brand new account increases the possibility of finding the person as a nearby Tinder user.

Most people also claimed that after upgrading to Tinder premium plans, the app has helped them find people they had unmatched previously.

On the other hand, if you get unmatched by another person, you won’t be able to see them unless they reset their account. You will only see that person again on Tinder when they reset their account. Account resets on Tinder clear all those blocks and flags, thus allowing people to be found.

How to Avoid Being Unmatched on Tinder?

The attractiveness of your profile plays a vital role in being matched or unmatched on Tinder. In most cases, you won’t get matched often if,

  • Sending a bad quality image or fake images.
  • Unattractive or offensive conversation.

Try to respond often and keep messages in check; try to be polite with people and avoid being aggressive while in a conversation. On Tinder, it’s good to have a flirty and “hook-up” vibe while chatting but dude and girls are often way too intimate. It has a higher possibility of turning another individual down, thus resulting in a quick unmatched.

Going overboard with the jokes in conversation can lead other people to read the joke out of context, and they may unmatch or report you.

There are several other reasons why you should be cautious when talking to other people on Tinder; it’s not just about you getting unmatched but more about your account getting banned if many people report your behavior.

Important: If someone makes you feel uncomfortable or looks suspicious on Tinder, you can report them using the same safety toolkit. Just select or tap on the report and follow the required steps.

Also, check the Tinder safety center dedicated to informing you about safety features.
