Advertisements

Only one ad per category per person.

And they are IP banning accounts.

So no more blanketing the site with ads with the hope that I might get a few hookups a year.

I do admit being completely addicted to casual encounters. I also admit to not being on anything resembling a date in decades and going years without even having a successful conversation with a member of the opposite sex.

Last non-Craigslist hookup was in 2003.

Of course the scammers and bot ads are still continuing unabated as usual.

Just another fatal blow in the death of the free internet.

This is the most despondent I have felt in years.

After decades of working this way, couldn't you have a little network of hookups you contact personally so you don't have to go through the site, or does it have to be someone new every time?

Not many repeats. The same things that trip me up in the terrestrial world, ugly, socially inept and live in a cramped and cluttered hovel that just screams POVERTY.

There was a potential one but I guess I blew it.

She responded to my annual begging for a birthday hookup post. Had a great time and said "how about 3 times a week?"

She contacted me a few days later but I was headed off to a concert. Then I got sick. Then I went out of town. So when I finally hit her up six weeks later, I was told I had the wrong number.

Not to mention the excitement of meeting someone new every time. There are other things like lots of different kinds of ads showing an interest in certains kind of hookups. Unfortunately the last time I went into explicit details (at another posters urging) I was blocked from posting for a week.

And I won't go into the whole pay to play thing.

Maybe it's time to have a real, meaningful relationship? Didn't you had a "real GF" just few months ago? What's happened to that?
Couldn't maintain it? Too addicted to porn and hookups?
Make a New Year resolution and get help. Seriously...
The apocalypse seems to be in much faster motion now.

I had a GF briefly in the early 1990's though I may have posted past issues as current for discussion purposes and to endlessly post-mortem the wreck that was my life.

Not sure if I even want to have a meaningful relationship or how I would pull it off if I decided I did.

2017 was the first year I had anything resembling an adult income and I improving my social life, including finding a girlfriend, that would be the next logical step but I really didn't know what to do and my social life seemed to be deteriorating.

(No one wants to date anyone working 30 hours a week at $10 an hour, on the other hand when it flipped hard in the other direction, I thought maybe I am better off with women thinking I am broke, at least until I can figure out how to adjust, but there were a LOT more hookups the past few years even with reduced Craigslist opportunities)

But aren't women supposed to love casual sex? As a man why do you need to post a bunch of ads? Why can't you just have one? Do you need a few in order to get some hookups? All things being equal, you should have a good success rate since women love sex just as much as men if not more.

It's a numbers game.

Not to mention sometimes I want to engage in just a specific act (let's cuddle while watching Hey Dude Where's My Car) or meet just a specific type of person (looking for a half Chinese half Gambian female over 40)and those are the ads I have the best luck with as opposed to the standard "hey have sex with a stranger" ad.

Anyway, my problem is this: I have a new girlfriend really my first serious girlfriend and we just decided to move in together.
Leaving The Bathroom Door Open

NOTE: maybe you should use your time wisely, and get some useful skills that would pay more than $10/hr?
I bet you would also get a chance to meet better sort of women than those looking for hookups on Craigslist.

Actually if you would read a little closer you would see I made a lot more than that this last year.
