I imagine a lot of people feel this way after making a stab at online dating.Am I the degreed professional looking for the similarly educated white collar guy?
The initial technology encountered some limits, so by Majordomo had been installed and the mailing list "Craigslist" resumed operations.I did exactly that for my friend on JDate and ended up getting very good at introducing girls to him.(Jewish women, beware of my Ashkenazi skills.) Let’s take some examples where everyone else is so terrible that you can dominate by being even somewhat competent.I created three separate ads for Craigslist, all of which were posted within a day of each other.All three ads described me as a degreed professional looking for activity partners, friends, and maybe a relationship if the other two things worked with a bit about my interests and preferences (within five years of my own age, no kids, no habitual drinkers or smokers, creative, active).She says that sometimes Craigslist lacks the level of decorum and respectful tone between its users demanded by regulated sites, but it’s still a viable source for anyone looking for love.
“In my book, I specifically talk about Craigslist in terms of a possible dating site, although without the screening that sites like have it tends to be pretty vulgar, yet there are still some great folks you can meet out there and I never felt unsafe with any of them,” she says.
Most of the early postings were submitted by Newmark and were notices of social events of interest to software and Internet developers living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. The number of subscribers and postings grew rapidly.
There was no moderation and Newmark was surprised when people started using the mailing list for non-event postings.
Every woman who has used Craigslist knows that it is a veritable jungle of unexpected penises.
In other words, if you’ve ever posted a nice, g-rated “women seeking men” post, you will immediately and inexplicably have 50-80 pictures of men’s penises in your inbox.
But given these well-publicised incidents, I decided to ask a few experts their take on Craigslist, how they feel about its overall safety, and their tips and tricks for helping to prevent unfortunate incidents.
