    I've bought and sold some cars and boats on CL. Just don't risk more than you're able to lose if things go south.

    I've sold an old laptop and a spare motherboard. Both times, the meetup took place at a public place. No bad incidents to report.

    I almost rented a place while traveling for my job and I'm so glad I didn't. The place was a shithole!

    Met a Chinese Year of the Metal Cat/Rabbit man.
    I'm a Chinese Year of the Water Tiger man.

    True to the book Chinese Sexual Astrology, he and I were able to make some accomplishments in life. He was romantic because a Cat/Rabbit is a peach blossom of the tiger. He was less argumentative than I was. He was more secretive than I was. Tigers and Cats are not 7-day a week partners, so even with marriage in NYC, we would not have gotten married. Metal nurtures Water. Yes, he cared about me sincerely.

    A few years later, I met (in Texas) a Chinese Year of the Water Cat/Rabbit man.

    He was less nurturing and slightly less caring than the Metal version. He was less available.
    Everything else holds.

    I sold my Litespeed racing bike on Craigslist. The transaction went well- the guy who bought it was a Methodist minister!

    I placed an ad on CL in 2008 and met my ex-boyfriend on there. I was living in San Francisco at the time. We had a short coffee date and hung out a bit. Then it turned a bit serious, we were together almost for about 3 years. After this, I tried CL now and then but I had like weird replies on there. So I met like none of the guys on there after my ex. Urg, just use your common sense when it comes to internet dating I guess.

    I met my jest gay friend on cl. Still friends to this day. One of the most formative relationships I've ever had.

    Craigslist has always been positive for me. I've gotten accommodations when I couldn't otherwise book a hotel---and met great people.

    I suggest you post what you're looking for rather than giving up if you don't see what you want. Many people respond who might not bother posting.

    Well, look-at-you: your physical beauty could gay whip anyone into good behavior. All you have to add to your looks and smarts are good character, good heart, good spirituality, interpersonal skills, emotional intelligence, some success in the material world, wisdom, friendly family members accepting and nurturing of your boyfriend and your relationship with him.

    I've never looked at a Craigslist personal ad. Really haven't needed or thought about checking it out, but I've heard so many negative things, I pretty much focus on things like "employment ads" for office staff in my office. That does bring results and very reasonably.

    I've had great luck selling things on CL - a GoPro camera, a wet suit, and a couch. I spent time screening potential buyers, and met some really cool people who became the next owners of my stuff.

    As far as when it comes to the personals, it's really hit or miss but this quote here, I agree with. When I posted what I was looking for a few years back, that's how I found a guy who I never thought I would have met and he was cool.

    I do feel that if you use common sense and gut instincts, it's not so bad and you have a better chance finding what you're looking for if you post what you're looking for. Yeah, you'll get guys who don't bother to read but you don't have to respond to them.

    Other than that, I feel that the other areas of Craigslist is hit or miss too. I remember last year my brother was trying to get a husky and tried to get one from CL. Long story short, he got robbed out of his money. It sucked so again, you have to be careful.

    What if, all the people are using their "sales" as metaphors for the personals?
