There’s no real solution for this larger problem, though.It’s just part of dating app culture these days, and one that can inspire negative feelings about the process in general.This helps to clean up the inbox without requiring users actually unmatch – something people are sometimes unwilling to do, because…well, you know…The end result of “Your Turn” is two-fold – it reduces inbox clutter and makes it clear who’s turn it is to chat next.
Of course, with just under a quarter of people saying they ghosted conversations because they got busy or forgot, that means there’s a larger majority who did the same for other reasons – they started dating someone, perhaps, they weren’t interested…or maybe they’re just a little rude.
“We’re going to be rolling out some pretty significant algorithm changes early in the new year,” Mc Leod notes.
He says the new algorithm will pay more attention to users’ chatting behavior, and will consider things like whether the person is just matching, but not chatting, or if they’re ghosting.
They can choose to like you back, say they are not sure, not interested, or simply ignore your request.
If they ignore your request then it will expire after 3 days.
