From the Likes You page:
- Tap on the profile photo. Note: A preview of the last message sent/received will be displayed.
- Then, tap on the message preview in the gray field to open the message.
- Type a message in the message field and press Send, to respond.
In order to read and respond to messages, you need to have an active, paid subscription to Match. In the meantime, we'll send you notifications when you receive new messages so that you'll know how much attention your profile is generating.
Once you have a paid subscription, simply click on the Matched or Likes tabs in the top navigation bar to view and respond to your messages.
Responding To Messages
To respond to message from the Matches tab, you can respond by typing in the space at the bottom of the thread.
You can also respond to a message through your Likes page by clicking on the Message icon on a member’s profile page. This icon is blue, and it looks like a speech bubble.
The Message icon (a blue speech bubble) appears on other parts of the site too, like your search results list. Whenever you see that icon, you can click on it to send a Message to that member.
When you’re using the desktop Match site, you’ll sometimes be prompted to send Messages to members on your Likes page.
There is no way to "unsend," recall, or retract a Message once it is sent.
Swiping left on a message will un-match you with that profile and delete your messages with that person.
There is no limit to the number of people a member can un-match with. Un-matching with a member will be valid for 180 days.
