You may have noticed if you have used Tinder for a while now that old messages will appear at the top. When I first noticed this, I thought it was odd. I wanted to know why new messages did not automatically appear at the top. So I did some digging and this is what I was able to figure out.
Tinder brings old messages to the top in order to rekindle old connections. Often past matches or forgotten about. This is one way for Tinder to try and create more connections by having past matches reconnect.
As a long term user of the app, I can say that there are many messages they have come and gone and have long since been forgotten about. And it stands to reason that not all of them have fallen by the wayside for bad reasons.
When I do see and old message brought to the top and to my attention by Tinder it does give me pause. Maybe I had missed something. Other times I think that it may be the other person reaching out to check in. But even when that is not the case it is not a bad idea to reevaluate each old match to see if they have any potential left.
This is not only good marketing for Tinder but can also benefit people who have simply falling out of touch.
In conclusion, revisiting old messages is not such a bad thing. There are many reasons why people fall out of contact. Not all of these reasons are necessarily bad as life can often get busy. By taking a second look at these matches, you can give or receive a second chance at making a lasting connection.
What I suggest is that you look through your old matches and messages and see if there are any connections that are worth rekindling. Even if these messages were not brought to the top and recommended by Tinder, there’s nothing to stop you from using your best judgement and seeing if there’s someone who deserves a second look.
The next best option is to try another dating site has there maybe a fresh pool of potential matches waiting for you there. While it is a different atmosphere as tender, I recommend eHarmony as the next best thing. In my experience. When you’re ready to find out who may be waiting for you, you can use this link to sign up.
