Can you rematch with someone on Tinder?

Tinder’s popularity has only grown over the last few years, with it maintaining its position as the most popular platform for singles.

Nowadays, people can find their ideal match through Tinder. However, there may be times where you accidentally swipe left on someone where you wish you hadn’t.

Or, you may have unmatched someone on Tinder accidentally only to change your mind later. In this type of scenario, is there anything you can do to rematch the other person?

Rematching on Tinder

Unfortunately, rematching with another person on Tinder actually isn’t possible.

When you unmatch someone on tinder or swipe left, they’re immediately removed from your account. This means that there’s no way to recover the person.

Tinder did add the Rewind function, which allows you to bring back the very last person that you swiped left on – this is great if you’ve accidentally swiped left.

However, if you’ve unmatched them there’s really no way for you to match with that account again.

What happens when you are unmatched on Tinder?

If you’re unmatched on Tinder, the other user will disappear from within your Tinder app.

This will include their profile, but also the chat history between you two as well, as Tinder places a very high priority on the privacy of its users.

You’ll immediately be able to tell whether the other person has unmatched you, as they’ll no longer appear in your matches or messages.

I’ve seen the same person more than once

If you think that you’re seeing the same person over and over again, the only possible explanation for this is that they’ve created a new account.

When a user deletes their account and starts again from scratch, their match list will be deleted, and there’s no link from the old account to the new one.

This means that any people you’ve unmatched will come up in your list of potential matches.

For this reason, it could be a good idea to start a new account if you want to find someone on the Tinder dating app.


In conclusion, after you’ve unmatched with someone on Tinder, there’s actually no way for you to find that same account again from your app – this is part of Tinder’s algorithm.

This can be frustrating if you’ve accidentally swiped left or accidentally unmatched someone, however it’s quite likely that you may experience this at some point with your Tinder account.

If you do, the only real option you have if you’re desperate to find unmatched accounts is to create a new Tinder account and hope you find them again.
