When I asked a male friend of mine if they thought Craigslist deserved top ranking on my list of places to find a sexual encounter online, they loudly said, "Are you kidding?! Yea, it works." Almost everyone I've spoken to who has used CL to hookup has had success; those that failed to find what they sought were either rude, exceptionally picky, or ignored my tips below.: Focus on replying to ads rather than posting them, make sure you have a fantastic, recent and clear picture of your face (keep the junk pictures to yourself for now), and share this picture along with a personalized first reply - most gals can spot a copied and pasted response a mile away.Then, move on to the next ad, and do the same thing.
More than once I've clicked on a link that I thought would show me something about my profile but instead took me offsite.Skip it.: Focus on posting an ad instead of replying to them, and know that there's a good chance it'll get flagged within 24 hours. There are a great number of folks on CL who are bitter, angry and/or frustrated with their lack of hooking up, and they'll automatically assume anyone who seems 'normal' is a prostitute.Share yourself genuinely, be clear and specific about who you are and what you're after, and make sure you use that flag button at the bottom of each message as often as it's needed.The number of members, features, what makes them different than everyone else and the target markets they serve have all been taken into account.And when you're ready to meet someone, we've got some cheap and free date ideas as well to help you connect with style, inexpensively.
