Match.com profiles may be deleted by placing the mouse over the profile name at the top right of the screen, selecting My Account Settings, and choosing the option on the bottom of the page that reads: To suspend or delete your account, click here. Profiles may also be temporarily suspended.
Before Match.com users suspend or delete their accounts, they must first remember to cancel the automatic renewal of their subscription.
For users who wish to permanently remove their profiles from Match, the process may be completed in just a few minutes. However, it is important to note that the deletion of a profile is a permanent process and deleted profiles may not be reinstated. For this reason, Match recommends simply suspending an account, so that users can avoid erasing the time they spent designing their profiles and forming connections.
For those who want a break from dating, or have recently met a great match, profiles may be temporarily suspended. This action removes users from the pool of available candidates while allowing them to reinstate their profiles if need be. To suspend a Match account, visit My Account Settings, choose To suspend or delete your account, click here, and select the option to suspend the account.
