But while the Casual Encounters page is a minor part of the Craigslist site in America, on the British version http: Our experience seems to bear this out. In the six months since Craigslist was launched in London, the Casual Encounters page has had , hits, with around 42, of them from women - an unusually high proportion.
Rachel Morris, a psychotherapist for Cosmopolitan magazine, said: Women have long been labelled sluts where men with similar appetites are regarded as studs, but this site seems to indicate that perhaps society is finally ready to allow women to satisfy their sexual needs without guilt or shame.
Even traditionally conservative groups such as the Brook Advisory Centre and the Family Planning Association have no problem with the site. She has met three men through the site in the past six months. It was so exciting. I felt amazingly liberated because we were both clear and honest about what we wanted. When he left the next morning I didn't mind at all and am completely happy that we haven't been in contact since. By September word had spread and Casual Encounters had shot to the top of the list.
The language they use is more direct than ever before: The London site is Newmark's first overseas attempt to widen his online marketplace but its unexpected success has led him to start planning sites for Birmingham, Manchester, Madrid, Paris and Berlin. Cosmopolitan 's expert is sceptical, however, about the lasting appeal for women. 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. 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...
