    I've perused the CL personals a few times, out of curiosity, just to see what people (men, women, gay, strght, etc...) are posting. It's interesting, but I can't help but notice how nasty the m4m section is. Do people actually hook up through that site? Am I naive? Seems kinda nasty... your thoughts?

    The personals have been around since before the internet, when you would read them in the back of magazines and newspapers ... it really is nothing new, it just looks new to you because you are young

    True, but CL ads seem to take it to a whole new level.

    These are just some of the latest m4m posts in the SF area. Mind you, this is the section where people are supposed to be looking for dates: there's another section just for hooking up (aka. Casual encounters). It looks exactly the same.

    Funny enough, w4w, m4w, and w4m personals adhere more to the dating type of ads and the more raunchier, hookup type ads for them are mostly in the casual encounters area.

    craiglist is where all the crazy people be. icon_lol.gif if you really want to be scared out of your mind, read missed connections. you will be laughing and frightened at the same damn time.


    I read missed connections daily. The people are just crazy. "I think you are hot-- Tell me what I was wearing, hair color, eye color and what type of watch I was wearing and I will get back to you..."

    So I never understood this. And then for fun one night I made and Ad, and many of the guys who answered were young and hot. It's mostly closeted teens and young adults so you get a lot of hot guys who

    haven't learned to be ageist

    haven't learned to be racist

    are local.

    So their limited exposure to other gay people means you can get a hotter guy for dramatically lower input cost on your part. I don't use it, but after experiencing the responses I got I don't fault those that do.

    I have used craigslist many times.
    The internet has made getting your message out there so easy.
    But actually meeting people is still hard to do.

    I have met a couple of really good men that I see on a regular basis now, they are my friends with benefits or FBs.
    Met several for one night/afternoon stands. Most of them were very good.

    But the overwhelming majority just do not pan out, this may be because of my schedule. Still most of the time can't get together.

    So if its only a small window of time that I have free, I usually go to the neighborhood bathhouse. There I can find someone 100% of the times, beggars can't be choosers.

    Yeah, some of the ads can get pretty nasty.

    They're all like «Piss play anyone?

    And I'm like

    I met my last ex-bf from Misc. Connection in SF! he was one of the normal ones! Since then, I posted a few times, I either get group/orgy invites, really young dudes or just dudes kept asking me to send pics even after I ignored them! I don't think CL is a good source at all but once in a rare while, you'd read a sweet long post from a gay guy on Misc. Connection that make you go **Awhhhh, provided that he's not tragic looking.
