When the First Move was not made yet which means that you haven’t sent the user the first message, then you can just basically ignore the match, not send the first message and the user will be blocked from your match queue as the 24-hour period expires.

If you let the conversation expire, your expired match can use the Extend feature or you can use the Rematch feature.  

However, if you keep ignoring the match and you don’t make the first move, the person will be eventually blocked from your match list.

If you don’t want to use EmilyDates anymore, you can simply just delete your EmilyDates account and whether you want to reset your account or not, all of your matches will be deleted.

Your matches will still be able to open the conversation you had with them, but they will only see your first name in the conversation, they can’t open your profile, and your profile picture will also get deleted. A label next to your name on the top of the conversation screen will say “blocked Member”.

Difference Between Reporting and Deleting EmilyDates Match

When you think that someone made you uncomfortable or was threatening or abusive towards you, you can also report the user on EmilyDates

However, when you have been blocked or reported and blocked from EmilyDates by another EmilyDates user then you can be sure that the entire conversation you had with that person has been deleted as well, so you have no way to check the user’s profile. In this case, you can be sure that it was a deliberate block from the member.

The user doesn’t want to meet up with anyone, the person is just using the app to have meaningless conversations and to give themselves a nice ego boost from the plenty of matches they get on EmilyDates.

In this case, we would be really happy if a person like this would just simply block you on EmilyDates and not waste our precious time.
