Craigslist is all BS! Good luck trying to find someone who isn't getting off through insincere e-mails. They have nothing better to do.

I did not know this existed until someone showed me not to long ago and I was laughing but also disgusted at how many of the men from here had accounts on CL looking for random sex, or even offered to " donate" ( money ) for it. Yet were on here claiming to be the best catch ever who is not into one nighters and looking for long term. And 5 of these 9 men all came up with the same lie , that their angry Ex must have made up the CL account ( eye roll ). LOL Like any site I am sure some of it is scams, hell same go for on here too !


the bs that people will post ....please someone inform this poster that no one has an account on craigs list ..it dont operate that way

Deerdog1, yes you can have an account on CL. That is how I advertise, buy and sell items through CL. You use an e-mail account to post and reply to ads. CL remembers your e-mail address to stop you from being able to easily spam in multiple cities and nearby cities.

For example, I live between Baltimore, MD and D.C. For me to advertise in both cities, I have to use two e-mail accounts. If I place an ad in DC, CL would block my e-mail account from posting in Baltimore because they are too close to each other.

OT: At least in my area, 99% of Casual Encounters for WFM are spammers or escorts. A large majority of the WFM and MFW categories are spammers as well. I wouldn't be looking for any person to date on CL. JMO.

^^^^^^I stand corrected however you dont need an account to post on CL ...I have done it several times ..I actually have sold and bought on CL and I dont have an account ....and would bet that most people who advertise in the personals dont have accounts.. and For some reason I still just dont think the poster who was telling about all the POFers that had accounts on CL also really knew what she was talking about

so in fact I accept I was wrong ..but in theory I I was right

^^^^If you were in the NC RTP in area, I am sure you probably got some messages or answered some of my peers posts or ads. LOL! Plenty of folks put up ads just for sheer entertainment. I have even answered a few just for fun, but they turned out to be spam bots and such. Which was as I suspected.

domo31, I'm sure you have may have met decent gents in your area of NC, but according to my single guy friends who contacted ladies on CL in the DC/Baltimore area, almost all were scams or escorts.

If you do not believe me, just look at casual encounters under WFM in those two cities. You will see a lot of ads removed because they are scams. Many escorts stay in the hotels in DC and BWI airport outside of Baltimore. Maybe that's why we have a lot of them on CL in my area. I have tried the platonic section and most (not all) were scammers, too.

I'll stay with POF when I want to meet new friends. It's work well so far both in AZ and the DC/MD area. I'll still use CL to buy and sell things.

I met 3 people off casual encounters years ago. Im in the NYC metro, so maybe thats why.

Guys who post wont get replies. I have twice. one time, funny enough, was when I posted like i was a dog, and chatted for hours with someone who was a furry. another was a guy pretending to be a woman, who really wanted someone to seduce his wife and cuckhold him.

I dont know what womean who posts that doesnt get replies. One person I met, got over 200 replies within a few hours. I stood out on my message line, and made some bill clinton jokes. it worked for me. she lived out of town, but house sat her moms house locally, and just wanted company when she was there.

I met another who wanted someone to hang out with and have sex with, but didnt want a relationship. she was a therapist. she heard peoples drama all the time, and she didnt at that point want drama. it became a fwb for a little while.

There is tons of spam. You can actually tell real ones from fakes, but it takes a keen eye. spammers use all the catagories, especially men seeking men. If it sounds generic, no personal details, like height or hair color. its usually fake.

I've looked through the adds, never placed one. From what I saw it was mostly married guys looking for a F W B on the side and guys looking for other guys. It can be amusing when you're bored to read a few.

^^^I agree with this, they are highly entertaining, and I have put up a few posts on the site in the past just for laughs also. Cheers.

I've used CL in the past. Had much better luck responding to the ads from men than posting my own. Met a couple that turned into longer term fwb situations. Using CL is very much like searching for a needle in a haystack. There are a few gems, but you've got to dig thru a lot of crap to get to them. I still peruse the ads, but mainly for entertainment now. Joined POF because I'm looking for something more substantial than a sex hookup.

Graigslist is my little gold mine for hooking up with women, So yes I do very much meet women for sex all the time. I average 2 to 3 women a month all very much in the mood and want sex now. I've seen women from 18 years old to some in there 60's most are very decent and pretty women I've even had way to many married women begging me to make out with them but sadly I turn then down I do after all have some morals. It takes a lot of work but the results are extremely fun. I do get plenty of spam and the occassional pro looking for work, I have learned to weed out the spam and skip the pros. Why pay there's plenty of women that need affection, friendship and a little intimacy just as I do.

People saying they don't, or have never tried to meet someone for "erotic action" on craigslist or some other site, is the same as asking someone if they masturbate. When asked, everyone says, "no, I don't masturbate." but we know better, don't we.

90% of the females on CL are enormous fatties and the other 9% think they aren't fat when they are.
================================================================
Time for me to check Craigslist out, then. I just LOVE big gals. The bigger the better.

All these casual encounters on craigslist are sex for money girls. They disguise their ads as casual encounter. I had two out of town customers and wanted to treat them good to drum up the business. I contacted couple of these ads and was blunt I am paying. I got two to respond and one offered to bring her roommate too. The price was $400 for the two women ad on my books went under miscellaneous. In my email I urged the women please don't act like ****es just once in your life.
My customers were happy.
