Why have my messages not been read by other members?

We’ve all been there: sometimes it seems to take forever to get an answer to your messages. If you haven’t heard back, there are a few possible explanations:

  • The single you’ve messaged hasn’t logged into Match, so they haven’t seen your message... yet!
  • They don’t have a subscription, so they can’t read messages. If you want them to be able to read and reply to your messages without a subscription, try the Connect Upgrade!
  • They don’t want to reply for some reason. Maybe they’ve found someone else, or you just didn’t click. We know it’s tough, but sometimes you just have to pick yourself up, put a smile on your face and get back out there!

Here are a few things you can do to maximise your chances of getting a reply:

Spruce up your profile with better photos and more description. Don’t forget to update it regularly.

Personalise your messages to the member you’re contacting. Talk about them, their pictures or the things you have in common. If you’re stuck for something to say, just ask Lara, our virtual Dating Coach!

Add the Connect upgrade to your subscription so anyone can read or reply to your messages.

Need more ideas? Just ask our dating coach Lara, the wonder woman of dating!
