The "Messages" feature allows you to access the communication history between you and your matches.
Communication and interactions can consist of the following: written messages, comments on photos and/or profile entries, "likes" of photos and/or profile entries, smiles and photo requests.
Providing you have had some form of interaction, your matches will be listed on the left. Click or tap on a match to see your communication history. New and unread notifications will be denoted by a number.
Here is a summary of the actions you can take within your communication history:
Personalized messages: Any sent or received messages will be saved here. You can also send your match a message from this window.
If you don't send your message straightaway, it will be temporarily saved in the memory of your PC browser. However, if you clear your browser cache and cookies, your unsent message will disappear. The temporarily saved message will not be accessible from an alternative device.
Comments: If you commented on a match’s profile or photo, you will see the comment here. Click/tap “show more” to see exactly which profile entry you commented on. If you would like to hide the text of the profile entry, click or tap “show less”.
Likes: If you “liked” a profile entry or a photo, you will see the “liked” entry or photo here. Click/tap “show more” to see exactly what you liked about the profile entry. If you would like to hide the text of the profile entry, click or tap “show less”.
Smiles: If you sent your match a smile, it will read “You sent (name of match) a smile”. If a match sent you a smile, you can smile back within the conversation window. Click or tap “Smile back”. Once you have done so, it will read “You sent (name of match) a smile”.
Photos: If you receive a photo request from a match you will see it here, along with a prompt for you to upload a photo. By clicking or tapping on "Upload a photo now", you will be redirected to your gallery. Similarly, if you request a photo from a match, your request will be recorded in your conversation.
If you click or tap on the menu denoted by three dots next to the match’s name, you will open a menu.
In this window you have the following three options:
Go to profile: select this option to visit the profile of your match.
Report messages: click or tap this button if the message you have received is suspicious, abusive, or does not respect our Code of Conduct. For more information, please visit the following article: How to report a concern
Delete Conversation: select this option if you would like to delete the communication history between you and your match. This will not delete your match, so if you change your mind, you can always initiate contact again.
