You log on to Tinder, start swiping through the photos of people looking to hook up in your area, finally find someone to pair up with, work out a clever opening line to message them and BAM!

"Message Failed to Send"

If this is what you're experiencing when you try to message someone on Tinder, the good news it you're not alone.

If your Tinder message fails, there are several things you can try to do to fix the app:

  1. Quit out of the program
  2. Turn your iPhone off and on
  3. The option of last resort is to delete and reinstall the app (but will that mean you lose all your current matches, can be heartbreaking when you've found a number of special ladies to chat with)

Still not working? Drop their social media manager a message on the official Tinder Facebook or Twitter account and get some advice from the pros!

Why do your Tinder messages not send?

Have you double checked your internet connection first of all?

If it's definitely not that, then - if you're on an iPhone, try double clicking the home button when you have Tinder open.

You will see a bunch of different windows zoomed out. Hold down the Tinder window, and swipe up.

The window will fly away. At this point just relaunch the Tinder app and try messaging one of your matches.

This always does the trick for me. Hope it works for you too and gets your Tinder app up and running soon!

Your Tinder messages might not be sending because you have an old version of the app.

Just open the app store, go to "updates" and see if there is a new version of Tinder to update.

Once you've installed the Tinder update, try sending a message and see if it will send or not...
