Yes, I agree.

Keep it to daytime, when things are busy, say a Starbucks, where there are a lot of people coming and going.
Keep the meeting to an hour or two. You have to be somewhere in an hour or two and they will be expecting you.

Never meet at night, or anything to do with alcohol, or any place out of the way.

Never let them accompany you to your car.

Seems trivial, but it all matters.

What is wrong with meeting at night?

Ummmm...ok I met someone off CL, but we talked for a while, exchanged pictures and numbers first. I met him at night, alcohol was definitely involved, in fact he came to my house picked me up, and we ended up back at my house...that was in January, we're still talking...

If you were single would you ever consider throwing caution to the wind, connect with someone via email and make arrangements to meet that evening? A rush rush blind date? (I am not talking about sex or prostitution, but just two lonely people who get together and hope for the best) You would meet in a public place to ensure safety.

Or would you require a long period of emailing and phone calls before you would dare get together? What do you think?
Most of those ads on Craiglist are FAKE or a SCAM of some sort so NO I would NEVER MEET ANYONE ON CRAIGLIST.

They have people who set you up and rob and kill and rape and torture you, you have people who want money, you have cops posting as FAKES to do busts and I do not recommend that site for DATING, HOOKING UP OR MEETING ANYONE ever...

Hell no. Only an idiot, or someone with a death wish, would do that.

Why don't you cross-reference it some day for fun with your match.com? Interesting what makes it so "holy" in your book... I'd get a kick out of it when you find one of your prospects on CL, too! Some people are ALL OVER THE PLACE and have been for years! It doesn't make a damn difference where you pick them from.

What is "holy"??

As far as some being on both match and CL? Hell yeah, I'm sure there are. When have I ever suggested that everyone on match was a gem?? Simply put, there are far less poisonous weeds to dig through than on CL. CL is well known for the quality (or lack thereof) of people that list there. Match....not so much. Trash blows everywhere. I prefer to stay out of the way when possible. It does make a difference, in my opinion.
