Blocking and Unmatching
Blocking or unmatching someone will prevent them from seeing your profile -- if they try to view your profile after you block/unmatch them, it will look just like you deleted your OkCupid account.
If you've had a conversation with them, blocking/unmatching will also remove the conversation from their Conversations page. We do not otherwise let people know that you have blocked or unmatched them.
How to block
On the website:
You can block people from their profiles by clicking the three dots icon at the top of the page, or within the conversation window. You can view your list of blocked/unmatched members on the privacy settings page.
On the app:
You can block people by tapping the three dots icon at the top of their profile, or by tapping on the icon on the top right when viewing a received message to see a block button pop up.
