This is probably always a scammer. Email troller, basically or will ultimately send you a link to click on, to generate a profile so they can feel "safe" about you?
How ironic, the scam is making you reveal yourself, so they can be safe, when really they are out to rob you of your most vital information. How unsafe does that make you feel? A phone number is increasingly useful in recreating a person's identity. Ok, im looking for a man. U need to have a place to host. Im very beautiful and fun and sexy. Im safe and not looking for unsafe stuff.
Plz dont text and ask for my pic. No sreenshots, no bs, im real. Im discreet and no trouble. Let try this guys. These people are plying a trade and I guess these posts are from a mixed bag of people who are just what they say they are.
You can normally spot these by their length and some level of detail about themselves and combined with specifics about what they are looking for.
This is helpful when they use different come-ons to attract response. Either of which are probably not what any guy is looking to engage with. This is part and parcel of the scams here, the photos can be used to regenerate your identity or simply the person is collecting photos because that's their hobby. Again, engaging with them is not going to produce a positive result.
Engaging with these people seems very counter productive at best and dangerous at the worse. Nice to look at, but overwhelmingly not actual photos of a woman you are going to engage with.
My advice to guys on this site is to guard your identity with every click. Every time you send a photo of yourself or your phone number or your real email address, think about this: Would you want that phone number used as tool to recreate your identity? Do you want some hacker busting in to your email account?
Seems to me we need the "real" women here to implement a special code to use in their ads, something that we can simply use in search to help. We can make this a safer environment, if we all work together! I have used it in the past and will just not send phone info I am busy, give me yours and I will call you in a few or photo I have decoy pics and will not send it to the CL address, onlly to a real address. I've messed with men posting an ad as well, to see what's out there in terms of competition.
I was 'impressed' at how little info men want to give, bad pics, short emails, they want to call you, they can not 'hosts' huh? So yes, men are protecting themselves but in a slightly different way than what you and I would consider. CL is bottom feeding of dating, but it works well for specific fetishes. I have standard email replies written up so i can communicate the first 3 emails without much effort and time. CL does work, you need to be careful and invest some upfront time.
All of this should begin to stand out to anyone who's spent a handful of nights or more exploring casual encounters. A couple things that weren't mentioned that should be are;. Create an entirely new email for your CL late night freak business. Homegirl on the left can do a lot better than that. However, when it comes to getting casual online sexual hook ups, we have it SO much easier than you or, since this is all about craigslist, I'll just say Str8s, to keep with the lingo.
Women by and large just don't go looking for casual sex like men do, most likely because they can, for the most part, get it on the street fairly easily if they're looking for a man.
So while there is a section for Women Seeking Men W4M , even for a casual encounter they are likely expecting dinner and drinks first, and the appearance of respectability. Also, most women posting on casual encounters are A: Girls operating webcams they expect you to pay for aka spam.
The reason so many str8 men indulge their bi-curiosity which you will come to learn and learn well throughout this piece on Craigslist is that they simply get fed up looking for women only to get scammed over and over again.
Most posts by men under M4W go ignored or are only answered by the previously mentioned hookers and webcam girls, and sometimes the occasional horribly unfortunate-looking real woman looking for a casual good time.
And yet, you always have to send them pics first. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but most women actually looking for sex on Craigslist from everyone I know who's actually met up with one really aren't the type to socialize beyond a certain point or even know to look or groom past a certain I'm not saying it is impossible to meet an attractive woman on CL, I suppose if you keep trying it'll eventually happen.
But same goes with meeting anyone you'll find attractive in pretty much any situation. We live in an age of abbreviated words and phrases, mostly due to the wonderful world of the internet, which is still something "new", I don't care how many of you kids grew up with it. Anyway, no place on earth exemplifies this culture of abbreviation more than the Craigslist personals section, or the "Casual Encounters" section.
There are several CL shorthand terms, but I'd say these are some of the essentials. DDF means "drug and disease free" this is big in M4M encounters.
Oh, M4M is Men for Men btw. You do know what btw is though right?? After you know the lingo it's really just about making a post , including an image and waiting for fish to bite.... However, when it comes to getting casual online sexual hook ups, we have it SO much easier than you or, since this is all about craigslist, I'll just say Str8s, to keep with the lingo. The real code is to describe something, some place about the city you're advertising in that only a local who's lived there would know. Most of casual encounters craigslist best brothels posts here are generated by individuals men and women who are promoting a few basic things: But when I suggested a time to meet — the last message from me before I would reveal myself and back out — there was no reply. Or simply they are photo collectors, which can produce a negative result for you. I'm a 20 yearold GA Tech student who has never kissed. But where were they? Will send more pics on request! No Thanks Sign Up. To get the female perspective, I did two things: And all over you. Following that, I interviewed two women to learn how they used the site successfully for their own fulfillment.
