OurTime messages will be live when a member logs in and at times disappear when the user sign is back on. OurTime messages disappear because the user either deletes you from their match queue, deletes the app, or accidentally unmatches you.
We explain why OurTime messages seem to disappear and what may be happening with your mobile dating app. Continue reading. Unlike some dating apps that give the user a few hours to respond to the match before it disappears; OurTime matches will remain matched until the user engages with the chat.
Once members get matched together, there is no time limit for one user to read a message of another. Their photo will sit in the match queue until one user initiates a conversation with the other.
OurTime messages do not disappear. However, there are a few reasons why the person you connected with may not be available to talk to anymore.
You’ve Unknowingly Blocked or Unmatched Them
This may happen if you’re careless with your fingers when on OurTime. It may also occur if you go on OurTime when you’re drunk.
You may unmatch with someone by simply swiping to the left over the person’s name, and an option to unmatch will appear.
This, as mentioned, could be done accidentally, especially if you’re clearing out old messages. Also, if you go to the top right of any chat/message, there’s an option to unmatch there. We always err on the side of caution when deciding if you want to unmatch and delete someone.
You can also report someone on OurTime.
They’ve Unmatched With You
It’s a hard pill to swallow, but more often than not, the reason you do not see the match that you were talking to is that they’ve unmatched you.
In our experiences, no matter how well you thought everything was going, there’s a good chance the person on the other end isn’t feeling it anymore or has found another match they’re interested in. This will often result in the user unmatching you and instantly deleting all the message history.
This is a common scenario on OurTime, as so many users come and go that a user may feel like they need someone new to talk to, thus deleting you from their messages. Our best advice is to continue with your OurTime journey and not worry about the girl or guy who deletes you.
What Happens When I Unmatch Someone on OurTime?
If you unmatch a member, the other side won’t get a notification or any message that you’ve deleted them. They will not appear in your feed anymore, and you will disappear from theirs.
It’s essential to keep all the conversation on OurTime and not give out any social media until you’re fully able to commit to that person and at least meet 1 to 2 times.
If you delete a match and want to not talk to that person, having your contact information could become bad. We’ve heard stories that both guys and girls will continue to contact people even after unmatched them.
In order to stop this from happening, keep all conversations on OurTime and be transparent with the other person. You want to keep all conversations on the platform until you’re ready to move forward. This will save you from many headaches shortly.
Does Someone Know If I’ve Unmatched Them on OurTime?
The answer is no. The other side will not get a notification, email, or any sort of indication that you’ve unmatched them.
We do recommend, however, that you be as transparent as possible when disconnecting with someone. “Ghosting,” or just leaving someone in the dust without giving them a warning, is one of the worst feelings users can feel when online dating.
We always advise being as transparent as possible with the other users, whether you’re interested or not at all. Don’t just delete the user for no reason.
Can Someone Save Messages on OurTime?
At the time of writing this post, there’s no way to export or save any message/chat on OurTime. All of the conversations will remain on OurTime. This is important because if you’re looking to save anything anyone said, you’ll need to screenshot or take pictures of what they’re saying.
If you get someone’s phone number, but they delete you while waiting for you to text them, it will be tough to retrieve that number because it will be gone forever. The best advice is to screenshot or keep pictures of your message if you need to save any information.
There’s no means to export the chat or send the conversation to anyone else. In finding a spouse on dating apps, people often want to save conversations and export profiles. This is impossible, as the user can delete you, and all the information is erased.
When a user deletes you, everything is deleted, and it’s like you’ve never matched in the first place. As explained, if there’s any information you wish to keep, we recommend you screenshot everything you need.
OurTime messages will often disappear because either the user has deleted you from their match queue or you have accidentally deleted them. There is no instance where the messages are just randomly deleted.
It’s important to know this because the other side is more than responsible for you not being matched anymore, not the OurTime platform. If you’re unsure of why you’ve been disconnected from a person you thought you had a good connection with, you can reach out to OurTime and find out.
However, it’s more than likely they just unmatched you. We’ve seen it happen for no reason, so it’s not uncommon for this to occur.
