Experiences with Craigslist?


  • Jan 15, 2016 6:35 AM GMT
    Has anyone used the men seeking men section of Craigslist? What are your experiences? I found it very hard to convince anyone to send a face picture even though I always send one right away... seems like all the pics of things other than hole/cock close-ups are just "wishlist" items, so many false hopes! How old are the guys there generally? Seems to be a lot of closeted men hiding their age...

    Odd I have the opposite problem. Guys normally send me a face pic. I want to say "bitch, let mama see the pecs and the D!"

    Ever heard of the Craigs List Killer.

    I hired a guy from Craigslist to clean out and haul away junk the previous owners had left in the garage when they moved and he backed into the closed garage door. So just make sure everything's open and ready when he shows up and you should be fine.

    I use CL once in a while, and your observation that many guys are averse to sending full face pics is generally accurate. On occasion I have hooked up with guys without seeing their face pictures first--but that's because my house has a very sophisticated home security system and I'm able to see everyone that comes within several meters of my property. In any event, extreme prudence is necessary when inviting strangers over.

    I have used Craigslist successfully.. and have the man I wanted. He worked out very well.

    However its in the service as an office assistant, not a personal scene (under employment). But no, never for a relationship or hookup.

    Craigslist trolling for cock is like the bottom of the barrel.

    Grindr is even better

    Men to Men section on CL is just for sex, hook up. Most guys who ask for a face cock pic, most of them are not serious. I only met my serious ex in the misc. connection m4m in the SF CL section a long time ago. But yeah it's like a hit or miss.

    Found some sweet deals on plates and bars on CL.
    Also found a good tailor that worked out of his home.

    Men Seeking Men section? Never ventured there. From what I hear, there's a lot of negotiation and very few exchanges being made.

    They want me to wire transfer them money via Paypal so they can pre-pay a pickup agent.

    People still use craigslist despite all the apps out there??

    OP will likely only find men such as him, or old creeps offering massages for free "no reciprocation required", as opposed to the actual demographic he's looking for icon_lol.gif

    You would be surprised at the hot guys who answer Craigslist ads.

    Looks like I'm in the minority on this one. I've met a number of really hot guys for fun on there. Have definitely run into some gamers and pic traders, but overall my experience meeting guys on CL has been very positive.

    I got a really hot deal on some office furniture.

    Actually, it being Craigslist, when I arrived with some guys to pick it up, the seller wisely asked to see my ID before she'd let us in.

    It may be "bottom of the barrel" but some of us just don't do well on Apps. At least with Craigslist, you can write more than a limited amount of words to help get yourself across.

    @OP: Craigslist is pretty much what I've used because I don't really do well on apps. The experiences are definitely hit or miss. I've mostly run into flakes and pic collectors but I have met a few guys off there.

    When I first used it at 18, I did find one guy who was much older than I was (He was 54), I found him very attractive (he was an ex-bodybuilder). That only lasted probably a month but it was nice experience. I haven't been able to find a guywhere there was mutual attraction since then but uh yeah, it can work.

    But generally, you are right. Majority of men on there are closeted/married men and pic collectors (you know because they never send you a pic).

    I'm thinking of trying Craigslist again, since OKC and Grindr are just full of weird guys in my area anyway. And yeah, I don't really like gay bars, it gives me like anxiety at bars. Lol, I don't know my ex was a great guy, we met on CL, he answered my ad. I'm contemplating doing it again. icon_smile.gif

    What's wrong with saying "no reciprocation required"? Sometimes it makes a difference for whether anyone is willing.

    Better question. Anyone ever respond to the missed encounters posts? They seem pretty romantic in an impossible that only happens in a movie kind of way. Besides that I almost went to a glory hole but I was so drunk I put my phone number wrong, that is if I was approved I guess icon_rolleyes.gif

    I went through a phase of my life when I tried sites like that. Surprisingly, my very first experience with craigslist was worked out perfectly.
    I had wanted someone to snuggle with. No sex, just a little physical companionship while on the road. I had got a few responses that are what I now know are typical creepy craigslist cruisers. But I got one from a guy who seemed decent enough. Closer in age than anyone on there ever seems to get and attractive. He lived right on my route so we met up had a snuggly sleepover (no sex) and I continued on in the morning before he headed to work.
    In some ways that was good, but at the same time it gave craigslist a somewhat false representation as I never had that work out the same again and probably only tried 2 or 3 times afterwards before realizing how rare an occurrence my first experience was. If only snuggle buddies were easier to find ....sigh

    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. icon_lol.gif 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. icon_wink.gif
