Bumble is an online dating app similar to Tinder. In fact, the app was founded by Whitney Wolfe Herd, the co-founder of Tinder, after leaving the company. Now Bumble is a location-based social app that helps interested people around the same location find matches and dates.
The operation of the app is very similar to that of Tinder. You browse through and swipe left or right if you’re interested or not. So after a match, you have to start a conversation before 24 hours, or the match becomes void. But sometimes, you may not be interested in the match and may want to unmatch it. So in this article, we are going to explain how you can Unmatch with a Bumble match.
How to Unmatch with a Bumble match?
Well, there is no need to unmatch someone if you don’t like the match because Bumble will automatically unmatch the current match if you ignore it for 24 hours. Although if the match uses an Extent on the match then it will take 48 hours. After that, the match will be void.
But if you feel like you cannot wait for that much, then you can also manually unmatch a match.
Method 1: Manually Unmatch a match
Just follow these steps to unmatch a Bumble match.
- Open the match and long press on the contact. Select Unmatch.
- Now Bumble will ask you for the reason why you’re are unmatching that match. Don’t worry. This is anonymous, and you can select the appropriate one.
- But if you’re doing this for no reason, you can simply select I’m just not interested.
That’s it, and now you have successfully unmatched a match.
Think before you unmatch: Although you should really think before unmatch a match in Bumble. Because after unmatching, there is no actual (easy) way of recovering that match. So think well before you make such decisions.
Method 2: Block a Match
Alternatively, you can also block a match. Although it’s wise to note that unmatch and block are entirely different things, and you should not use block unless you think it’s necessary. Blocking not only removes the match from your list but also notifies Bumble about the blocked account. So if you think the person is behaving very inappropriately and is a threat to you, then it’s better to block the person instead of unmatching. So use this option only if it’s necessary.
So as you can see, you can easily unmatch a match in the Bumble app. But the only thing is you cannot find the match again once you unmatch it. So think before you unmatch a match. However, there is a fallback option for accidental left swipes.
You can simply shake your phone to undo that. But there are no easy methods for unmatching. However, you can try reinstalling the app after uninstalling it. Because, by doing so, you can refresh the suggestions, and you can find the match again.
