How to Block a User on Match

By Paul Higgins

Learn how to block a member from sending you further messages on the Match.com online dating platform.

If you do not want to receive further private messages from a Match.com user, block him from contacting you by clicking a link on his profile.

Step 1

Visit the profile of the user you wish to block from contacting you.

Step 2

Click the Block From Contact link to block the user. After clicking the link, Match.com displays a new Unblock From Contact link, which you can click if you decide to unblock the user at a later time.

Tip

  • If a member sent you messages of a threatening, offensive or harassing nature, consider reporting him to the Match.com moderation team by clicking the Report a Concern link on his profile.
  • You can block up to 125 contacts.
  • View the list of the users you have blocked by clicking the cog-shaped Gear icon at the top of your screen, selecting Settings and clicking the Blocking link.
  • Match.com does not notify members you decided to block from contacting you.
  • Blocked members can still view your profile and — though Match.com does not deliver their messages to your inbox — they can still click the Email button on your profile and type a message.
  • If you are a paid Match.com member, prevent a specific user from appearing in your search results by clicking the Block From Search link on his profile.
