I had this really long conversation with a guy. At some point, I just kind of dropped it but he kept e-mailing me. His final comment was how disappointed he was that he couldn't even get punched in the face on Craigslist. Some guys are happy just even having a fist on their face. I'll fix up my bedroom with forest decorations to give the whole scene some more authenticity.
There were people who claimed to have some experience with that. That just shows the lengths people are willing to go to have sex: I had guys hoping to call me, ready to audition their bear growls. I am not looking for lengthy responses, so keep it within the length requirements, and please refrain from using run-on sentences.
That one was very similar to my "Six word story. People tried; they put a little more effort into their responses.
For the most part, men are on that site looking for casual sex and they're willing to do almost anything to get it. This is a space where subscribers can engage with each other and Globe staff. Non-subscribers can read and sort comments but will not be able to engage with them in any way.

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. This keeps your actual email clean and protected. As far as the "real" women implementing a new code.. 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.
I list something to the effect of "The mayfair district is home to many folks who live an alternative lifestyle. The north mall sees it's share of snobs. This should help you to validate my authenticity as a real and local person" Something everyone local can relate to and recognize, landmarks or common opinions of the towns people "The causeway maintenance is a joke right now, when is this project going to be completed? I have places to get to! I sometimes make people do something specific just because I wrote a lot of text and want to make sure they read the whole ad..
