Very few responses, and also very little spam, which is odd, responding to my ads. It feels like it's just not working for me any longer and it's time to try something else.
There is a possibility that the information provided here is outdated or wrong, please check with the service directly for the most recent information.As always you should read your terms of service before signing up to any online service.Even girls that have no pic up (most real ones don't, hell most fakes don't either), and a couple sentences probably get 40 messages in the first hour. Moving on, posting on CL - mostly for sex, has netted me some really attractive one night stands.I look for something somewhat specific, but common and something many women are into, even if only temporarily.The one big problem with Craigslist is you have to be very careful of scams and fraud.
Since it is a free service, it does tend to attract criminals looking for an easy target.
As a guy who has had some success on CL, let me offer my thoughts.
First off I've NEVER had success answering existing ads from women. Occasionally there is a real ad, but unless they have a butt ugly pic up, or something really bizarre, they get inundated with messages from dudes.
Got a lot of spam emails I thought were legitimate at first.
Cool pictures for taking care of the male things but nothing else.
Craigslist first started as an email list for events in San Francisco in 1995 by Craig Newmark.
