There are certain things you should be able to filter without having to pay for such as smoking, drinking, and drugs. I realized that every button I pushed was asking me to pay. Did you Like this app? I feel sometimes the profiles on this app aren't real.
It's free to download and use, but there are additional features which require a premium subscription.
You can use the filters to find people who are in your age range, have similar interests, or have children — or take the Chemistry Test to find matches with compatible personalities. As a dating app, Clover is as good as people are making it out to be.
Your account is deleted after 60 days. I tried to sign up and had no choice but to accept and pay. Clover definitely enables more casual encounters if you choose to throw caution to the wind and start tapping the like button, knowing those people will see your curiosity.
So basically you pay money to be able to look through profiles and send anyone at all a message even if the person would never ever have matched with you.
