Local adult personals
One of the first controversies began in 2002 when they added an disclaimer to ensure that anyone viewing these pages were over the age of 18.
They added it to "men seeking men", "erotic services", "casual encounters" and "rants and raves" sections, but not for other dating categories such as "women seeking women", "men seeking women" and "women seeking men", which is where the problem came in.
After pressure from a few US States and their Attorney Generals, they changed the category name to "adult services" on May 13, 2009.
Our site is just for those interested in legal dating and hanging out (the 99% of those who were using Craigslist Personals).
If you’ve been dating via apps, you’ve almost certainly been swiping hard on Tinder. Happn matches appear in your timeline as you pass them in real life—link up the minute you match or later.
But, there’s actually a whole slew of other dating apps that may be even more useful for you. The one drawback of the location focus is that after a bad date, you risk an awkward run in at the gym.
Were you surprised to learn that Craigslist Personals had suddenly shut down out of the blue?
If you were using Craigslist for dating, we have a new alternative for single men and women to connect and hang out.
The most popular categories for their personals were "strictly platonic", "men seeking women" and "women seeking men" for online dating.
