I was bored this weekend and decided to read some posts on Craigslist rants and missed connections are amusing, most of the time. There's never anything in "Misc Romance" at least in the w4m section and it seems like most of the posts in "Casual Encounters" are potentially scams.
I went and looked at the standard "Women Seeking Men" and even the "Strictly Platonic" sections and both seem to be overrun with the same scam-apparent posts found in Casual Encounters.
A year ago I made a post in Strictly Platonic about wanting to meet up with someone to see a movie, maybe grab a drink. It didn't really work out met, had the drink, then she bailed.
Just wondering if anyone has successfully used Craigslist to find whatever they're looking for in a relational, personal capacityor is the idea of looking for such things in Maine a joke? There have been a bunch of posts in the last week where the person is asking for money in exchange for sex. How is this not illegal?
I mean, I realize sometimes a person really does need some extra money and decides this is the best way to go about it, but as a male looking at personals, I would be highly skeptical of these posts. I'd be worried it was a cop or something.
You can tell I have little-to-no experience with responding to posts. I'm sure a lot of people don't think about these aspects, or want the fantasy of it and choose not to acknowledge the dangers. The Maine Rants n Raves section is the most pathetic thing on earth.
CL needs go to through and banhammer every IP that posts there more than once a day I mean, it's fucking pathetic, you go to any other Rants n Raves on CL and there's usually some fairly amusing stuff in there, but Maine's the same jerkoffs posting nonsense It makes the whole state look like morons which, then again, is mostly true. Also, CL personals are not, like, the best thing to do in the dating world. That's what surprised me.
That bit me in the ass when I saw a movie with a girl, we had some great conversation over coffee and then when I asked for her But yeah, when I see "Hey, I wanna feel your fingers inside me" in a platonic post, I read it as "Obvious scam is obvious. It's even worse if you live up north Tons of that.
Nothing wrong with it, just not what I'm looking for. That said, I did manage to hook up with someone over craigslist once. As a Southern Mainer, I often get frustrated when pretty much every site just has a "Maine" category and you have to drive two hours before anyone is willing to do anything.
It's odd when you start considering the closer to home yet less attractive option simply because what you save in gas you make up for in shame. I think the CL personals are hilarious.
I have never used the personals but know people who have, successfully- you have to sift through the dirt for a while though. I tried to match. I received an saying they can't start a profile for me because there are no compatible matches on their site.
Maybe you'll have better luck!
Never used them, but have seen enough news articles to know that in many places they are not much more than prostitute ad space, and many large cities have cracked down on CL for this stuff. One time I got called an insensitive asshole for correcting someone about herpes statistics in their post.
I was just trying to help her. That stated, the quality of posts there is subpar, and I mainly browse for a laugh. I'm not even looking.
I've been with someone I met via Maine Craigslist for some 6 years now. I'd say it worked out pretty well.
