A friend of mine used it and found someone. It just takes patience and you cant ever expect anything.

I did place an add on Craig's list I think it was June, for casual encounters. It got pulled after a day and a half, but not before I was able to make some really nice connections.

In fact I am still seeing a lovely man I met with CL, we are both freaky little lovers in our very discreet little world. It was something taboo and I love livin on the edge.

My experience is very real, just like it was when I placed an add on AFF. To each their own. I enjoy my sexual side and am not afraid to express my true nature.

So not only have I been intrigued, I have been that 1 or 2 woman:)) I am also not disappointed in the result, like I said, I met a freak that parallels my freak and even though we both know it won't last forever, I will be having some freaking great memories.

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 !

I've never done Craigslist before, sounds really scummy and creepy. I have gone there to read the "missed connections" though. Pretty entertaining and fun to read when I'm bored.

When it was what I was looking for..

I saw more ass than a toilet seat from "casual encounters". I was fresh out of a relationship ,and couldn't care less about "Miss Right". All I wanted was "Miss Right Now".

But you would be surprised how quickly that gets old..

there have been a few murders from meetings based on craigslist ads for casual encounters.

I've had four hookups from Craigslist. Actually, the first one wasn't intentional, and I lost my virginity to him, but he ended up being a Fwb situation. No regrets there. The other three guys were to nervous, and total busts.

I posted a ad on there when i was thinking about having my first Bi exp. Wasnt sure were to go really. CL sucks. I did end up meeting someone, but its not worth the hassle. Ads get flagged for no reason, you are emailed by people wanting to collect pics posing as women, CL needs to change the way the site is run for it to be of any good use.

I've heard of folks meeting on CL, and I've certainly looked there. But most of the ads I've read, written by men who are looking, not only have no photo - but they ask that whoever is responding to send THEM one ( so they can pick and choose - and ignore?). Seems kinda backwards to me ...

90% of the females on CL are enormous fatties and the other 9% think they aren't fat when they are. You are lucky if you can find that 1% of females that are decently normal and attractive on there.

Just a side note, a friend of mine responded to a job posting on CL. She got a reply from a man offering her a job. We both poured over the email and agreed that something wasn't right. We started a internet search of the mans name and he turned out to be a wealty, powerful, well established business man in Canada. After more thought we still thought something didn't seem right so we contacted the mans business in Canada, and sure enough, he knew nothing about it. So...someone was using his identity here in the States to try and get someone to show up at an unknown address to accept his "offer of employment". Pretty scary. I personally wouldn't be looking for a casual encounter, but considering all the risks of CL I would be very cautious about meeting up with anyone from there!

I hope you alerted the police about this..you may have saved someone from harm. Also, those posing as such, normally have a colorful criminal background that need to be caught..again.
