The dating game

So I was out having a drink with a friend, who's dating life can be described as "painfully embarassing", when she casually blurted out that she posted a personal ad on Craigslist. Feeling that it was her last resort, as the bar scene was getting old, and the idea of bumping into Mr. Right at the grocery store seemed far fetched. She searched my face for approval, but instead received a face frozen in horror.

 Now, I'm not against dating websites. Some people have found their significant other on sites such as Match or Eharmony, but Craigslist, really? It's filled with posting from bottoms looking for tops, sixty year old men looking for eighteen year old women (preferrably african american), married men looking for a NSA encounter with a transsexual, hookers and webcam girls. Not exactly the place to post looking for a true meaningful relationship.

 

Yes, I've visited the site but purely out of curiosity...purely...really. I asked her if she'd received any responses and she told me that she had, but most were from men who sent pics of their small, hairy, unappealing penis. Clearly these men aren't ready for the rigors of a committed relationship. She did receive an email from a seemingly normal guy, and after a few exchanges gave him her number. Conversation for the first ten minutes was awkward, but exciting, until he asked her if she was into men who wore diapers and like to make "boom boom".

 

To that I couldn't help laughing hysterically. She's going to give it a couple more weeks before pulling the plug, but obviously she isn't off to a good start, and I'm sure the end won't bode well either.

 

Trolling the internet looking for sex isn't as taboo as it once was. It is so common infact that it would be weird to not see it, but when you post looking for romance in a section of Craigslist that's know for it's sexual debauchery, don't be surprised when you receive a pic from some pervert wearing a leather mask and ball gag.

Craigslist is a great place to find used furniture, part-time jobs, and chlamydia.
