Just like its current version, Clover says it uses its proprietary Pair Algorithm to match people with potential dates — a bit like Zoosk and the like — although it’s a bit unclear what factors it takes into consideration given the low-effort of signing up (no long questionnaires).
The emerging approach is really reminiscent of matchmaking services, through which people traditionally get set up on dates, not with chat rooms.
But perhaps more important is the revamped pricing model, which lets users send and receive messages with mutual matches for free.
A fresh graduate from 500 Startups’ Batch 10, Whim was founded by an Okcupid Labs alumna, Eve Peters, who wants to help singles cut to the chase and go on dates.
Similarly to Whim’s service described above, Clover daters set when and where they’ll be available for dates, the app gives them suggestions of other singles with the same availability and who are interested in them (presumably, have swiped “yes” on their profile), they can review the suggested date’s details, and confirm or deny the date.
