Bumble conversation disappeared? Here’s why

Bumble is a popular dating app that allows you to match and have conversations with new people. Often, your Bumble matches can add up over time, and it’s not always easy to maintain several conversations at once.

One common question users have is why Bumble conversations disappear from their account. It’s a common issue – one minute you’re talking to someone, the next minute your Bumble conversation disappears.

But why does this happen to Bumble users? We took a look at the most common reasons why you may find a conversation disappears from your Bumble app.

Why do Bumble Conversations disappear?

There are a few reasons why your Bumble conversation disappeared. The most likely scenarios are;

  • They unmatched you.
  • They deleted their account.
  • They blocked and reported you on Bumble.
  • You’ve switched off Date Mode.

These are the four most likely reasons that you’ll find a conversation you’re having disappears from your Bumble account. Let’s look at them in a little more detail.

You’ve been unmatched

The most likely scenario when you find that a conversation has disappeared from your account is that you’ve been unmatched by the other person.

When this happens, the the person’s match profile and conversation will be removed from your Bumble account, and you won’t find that person in your match queue again.

This could be for a variety of reasons – often, users of Bumble are juggling multiple matches at the same time. So, whittling down their chat queue becomes important.

The best thing for you to do is focus on finding more matches with Bumble, and then hopefully end up finding the right person for you.

They deleted their account

There’s also the chance that the other person in your conversation has ended up deleting their Bumble profile.

This is a common occurrence when someone enters a relationship – though you may have been having a great conversation, they look to prioritise one relationship over the rest.

You’ve been blocked

Another reason why you may not be able to see the conversation you was having with someone on Bumble is that you’ve been blocked.

Users typically block people when you’ve said something offensive, although there are cases where someone may block you just because they want to end the conversation.

If you’ve made the first move, then they could have retroactively blocked you after recognising you from another platform.

They may also report you to the Bumble team if you’ve done something wrong or caused offence.

Either way, there’s not much you can do in this scenario aside from move on.

Date mode

The final reason why you may have lost conversations on your Bumble app is that you’ve turned off date mode on your device.

Date mode is simply a way for you to keep using Bumble whilst actively removing yourself from the dating scene.

So if you disable date mode on your phone, you then won’t be able to match with new people and your conversations may be removed from Bumble.


All in all, when someone unmatched you on Bumble, the conversation between the two of you will disappear. It could also mean that they blocked you on the platform.

Bumble is a simple app that allows people to meet and chat like Tinder does, but the girl sends the first message after matching. And if your conversation disappears, it’s usually best for you to move onto the next one.
