sportsman saidFOR ME, it is a relationship ENDer; finding CL related shit makes me feel really unsafe.... But I understand guys who just want sex and are willing to risk the other shit that goes along with it, like putting mileage on a car hahaha. But, each his own, lets just say major deal breaker if I see craiglist pop up in the web browser on a dude's computer I'm chillun with.
What if the 'dude' was just selling something? Do you also run away if he has cholesterol-lowering meds in his medicine cabinet?
OP: this thread is a lot of fear...what ever happened to sitting down and talking over your questions? Relationships are about communication; running away from that doesn't say much about your interest in pursuing something long term.
Yes, CL does have some nasty, freaky people. However, this could also be someone who stole his pictures posting the ads.
Yea pretty much. I've used craigslist for 3 years since realizing I'm not going to settle down with just anyone. It's great for having sex when you want it (if you can filter through 95% of the disgusting types on there), and if you don't know how to have safesex or safe sexual play, then don't use it because you don't know what you're doing. You have to know how to look for signs and play on the safe side, but other than that, get over it and have fun. Consenting rational adults can do what they need to do, and it doesn't diminish these people toward being relationship-worthy. You don't buy the car before test driving it.
I'm sorry that this thread is full of prudes. You CAN look for a relationship while also having your other needs met temporarily. If you're looking for a relationship for just sex, you're going to be unhappy. There is much better sex with variety and new experiences than just having the same guy and all his other shit you don't like about him that you're sticking with because you're too prude to go find out about how STDs are contracted. This is why people cheat--you're in it for the wrong reasons.
