The only way to guarantee that someone’s profile won’t appear is if you’ve previously “matched” and one of you “unmatches” the other.According to Tinder’s FAQ page, unmatching is a permanent action, so you won’t be able to communicate with them ever again, and they won’t come up while you are on the app.
