Tinder does not repeat profiles. It just doesn’t show the same person twice, unless they’ve opened a new account, or if your connection was bad while swiping, and a few rare scenarios.
Accidentally swiping left on profiles has been a real struggle in the online dating world.
You get so used to the no-no profiles that the realization point hits you only after you swipe left on a decent profile. Well, you just swiped left accidentally!
With a little time and effort, you can see an accidentally swiped left profile on Tinder again!
Using third-party tools like SocialCatfish can make it easier for you.
Besides third-party tools, there are other ways through which you can find this person. Finding someone’s dating profile isn't actually that difficult.
So, how do you find someone on Tinder after swiping left on them?
Here are 4 ways through which you can find someone on Tinder after swiping left on them:
1. Use the Tinder rewind button to find them back.
Rewind is specifically designed to rewind a profile you swiped left on Tinder. However, this tool, unfortunately, isn’t free on Tinder.
That means you’ve got to be paying money, in one way or another.
Here’s how you use the Rewind button on Tinder:
- Join one of Tinder’s premium subscriptions (Plus, Gold, or Platinum);
- Tap the yellow arrow that’s right next to the “X” icon;
- See the profile you swiped left!
Keep in mind that it only rewinds the last profile you swiped left.
This means that if you keep swiping after accidentally swiping left on a particular profile, you won’t be able to see them.
That being said, you can’t see previous people unless they’re the last profile you’ve swiped. At least not with the Rewind tool on Tinder.
Since you don’t have a search bar on Tinder to find someone specific, you can use this search bar to do it.
Be specific with their name, age, and location. It’s easily done, and cheaper than a premium subscription on Tinder.
This is a tool used to find someone specific on Tinder. A lot of people use it to find their spouses, partners, friends, hell even co-workers.
You can find them once, twice, or hundreds of times as long as the person you’re looking for is still on Tinder.
3. Ask your friend to search for the person and share the person’s profile with you on Tinder.
When you see a profile on Tinder, you get the chance to share that profile with someone else.
So, if you don’t feel like paying anything, you can ask your friend(s) who are using Tinder to share that profile with you if they see it.
Once your friend(s) find the profile, they can share it with you easily. What you can do after that is Like, Nope, or Super Like them. Here’s how you share a profile on Tinder with someone else:
- Click the info button on the person’s profile on Tinder;
- Scroll down a little, and you’ll find the “Share [name]’s profile. See what a friend thinks.”
- Choose a social site to share the profile on.
Here’s what the link may look like:
Voila! Your friends can help you, honestly. It’s very easy.
4. Delete the new account and start fresh.
This one is a little riskier. And before you do it, you have to think about whether you want to ‘risk it all’ for this one person.
Simply, delete your profile: Profile > Settings > Delete Account.
The next step is opening a new account and starting swiping carefully until you find the person again.
This time you can give them a super-like to catch their eye. Otherwise, you can’t reach out to them unless they like you back, and you two match.
You accidentally swipe left on Tinder, are they gone forever? If someone swipes left on you on Tinder will they still show up?
If you accidentally swiped left on a profile on Tinder, they are not gone forever.
Although it is very unlikely that someone you swiped left to show up again on your swiping feed, there are times when left-swiped profiles reappear on Tinder.
If you accidentally swipe left on tinder they will come back if:
- A profile can come back or reappear on Tinder if there’s been a glitch on the app.
- If the person opens a new account on Tinder.
- If you open a new account on Tinder.
- If you’re living in a rural area where not many people are using Tinder.
In other words, yes, you can see a profile twice (or more) even if you swipe left on them.
Among the 66+ million users of Tinder, you found the perfect one for you, yet you accidentally swiped left on them; I understand the pain.
Is it worth taking those actions?
Before doing all this: Think about it – they might, or might not even swipe right on your profile.
Think of the odds of that person swiping right back on you: matching with that person. If you think the odds are high, then go for it!
FAQ – Swiping on Tinder!
1. Will tinder show you someone who already swiped left on you?
No, Tinder doesn’t show you someone who swiped left on you. And neither does it show you, someone, you already swiped left.
Meaning, you will not see them if someone swiped left on you, and that person won’t see you either if you swiped left on them.
2. How to know if someone swiped left on Tinder?
You can know someone swiped left on Tinder if you swiped right on their profile, but you never saw their profile again.
That’s usually because if someone swipes left on you, you will not see them again since they rejected your profile as a potential match for them.
3. Why does someone I swiped left on Tinder show up again?
Someone you swiped left on Tinder might show up again because they’ve created another profile, you had a poor internet connection, or you’ve been shadowbanned on the app.
4. I accidentally swiped right on Tinder, what do I do?
If you accidentally swiped right on Tinder and you matched with that person you can find them on your match list, go to their profile, and unmatch them if you don’t wish to be a match with them.
