Bumble has a vast user base. So the users get a lot of options when swiping through the app. You may like someone’s look or someone’s humor and swipe right. However, looking at a profile and talking to a person is different. 

In case you did not like the person after talking to them, the date didn’t go well, or the vibes didn’t match. Unmatching them is an option you get on Bumble. It is always better to inform the other person before you unmatch them. However, only some conversations may end cordially, so you might not want to.

If you report the Bumble profile, you have to mention a reason. Once done, the person gets removed as your match.

The other way to unmatch someone is by not sending a message in the first place. After 24 hours, bumble will automatically unmatch them for you. These matches appear in a grey circle at the top of other chats. If you have Bumble Premium, it allows you to rematch these matches if you want to later on.

  1. Violation of terms: If any user is found violating Bumbles terms of service their profile will get banned. These terms of service mention what behavior is and isn’t permitted on the app.

  3. Phony Profile: Pretending to be someone else and misguiding other users has the same outcome as being improper on Bumble.

In case you do not want someone to view your profile or see their profile yourself. Blocking the user helps in achieving that. Simply scroll down on their profile, and you will find the block and report option. Select  I’m just not interested option and you are good to go.

What happens when you unmatch on Bumble?

When you start talking to someone, it is possible that your vibes don’t match, or you lose the connection after a while. In such a case, it is better to unmatch than to drag the conversation or keep them hanging. When you unmatch someone on Bumble they can no longer communicate with you on the app. The user can not open your profile from the chat history either. All the messages get deleted for them. 

Bumble does not ask for a reason when you unmatch someone. However, if you’ve found something inappropriate or uncomfortable while talking, you can report the user.

Before you unmatch someone on Bumble remember there is no going back. Once you have unmatched the only way back is if you find the person while swiping and match again.

Does unmatching on Bumble delete messages?

Yes, unmatching on Bumble delete messages. Whether it is you who is unmatched or got unmatched by someone, the messages are deleted for both parties

When you unmatch someone the chat box completely disappears. For the one getting unmatched, messages get deleted but a greyed-out chat box remains. It helps in ensuring the safety of unmatched users and also informs them that the match has ended.
