Outside of that section, I've sold a few items off there that went well. I would've been more comfortable posting in a flyer though.
I've "luckily" met only a few guys off there in the passed few years. Nowadays, most of them if not all require a deposit and some down payment of sort.
It's funny, because why pay when you can get it for free? Spur out of the moment kind of thing, feeling adventure, horny...and "generous", it can happen. Before and at the same time, I've used the most known of them all A4A for a few years before and managed to meet quite a few guys on there. Some were hookups. Some were non-hookups. Then I started going on apps suggested by friends and realize that a lot of the same guys use the same apps and websites.
Basically, the websites, apps, are a hit or miss. It all just depends. For a more "meaningful" approach, less superficial and sexual, there is Meetup and even being out in the community. But these days, it's a lot harder meeting someone so we go to websites and apps. I actually met friends of a friend (and his fiance') on Facebook before and we had our nice little group at the time. We went to a small bar, had Thanksgiving at one of the guys' condo, celebrated my birthday and New Years, went to the beach. I was working in retail several years ago and met a coworker. We'd hang out a few times a month, he'd even travel 30 mins to hang out and we'd drink. Eventually we even started to have fun. He was even straight.
Try to find an interest of yours or activity, maybe even get a guy to join in with you or meet some guys in the process. Who knows what'll happen.
