The joy of Craigslist's list "for sale" section was that almost anybody could post or respond to a listing. The downside is that almost anybody could post or respond to a listing For anybody looking for a little extra security, meet Facebook Marketplace. The tool allows Facebook users to buy and or sell items in their neighborhood. But the perk of Facebook Marketplace is that it connects to your Facebook profile and displays data that you've made public on the platform, which the platform hopes will make it easier to avoid spam and fishing.
Know where and how to search, and Craigslist can be a job hunters go-to career board. With everything from writing gigs to medical opportunities, Craigslist hosted a bevy of job listings.

All helpful information for anyone trying to find a new gig. Since it debuted in , TaskRabbit has become almost synonymous with the phrase "gig economy.
To match people with jobs, TaskRabbit does two things. First, it allows job searchers, which they call "Taskers," to make a profile which lists their hourly rate. Then it allows clients looking for help to post a task request for everything from helping build furniture to waiting in line to put in a restaurant reservation. Taskers are able to select a job around them and if a client confirms a tasker and their rate, then parties are matched. Like TaskRabbit, Moonlighting is a site and app that connects job searchers with clients, but rather than complete tasks, Moonlighting curates longer-term freelance jobs.
Moonlighting lists jobs ranging from website designer to wedding photographer, which means no matter what your speciality, you can find a gig that suits your skills. When Craiglist retired its personals section, the internet collectively mourned the loss of one of the OG places to find a quick fling online.
With sections for casual encounters, strictly platonic, and misc romance, the site was a hub for anyone looking to meet others in their area. But fear not, if you're looking for an alternative to Craigslist personals, be sure to check out: If you love Craigslist's "Missed Connections," then Happn is the dating app for you.
Founded in , the app allows anyone looking for a date to see the profile of other users that they happened see what they did there to have crossed paths with. From there, users can decide if they want to chat with that person, or to move on.
Sometimes people went on to Craigslist personals to find their one true love buuuuutttt other times people went on Craigslist to find their "one true just for right now.
If you're looking for an app to help you find a date, casual hook up, or more, check out Grindr. Since it launched in , the LGBTQ app has expanded to include a digital news magazine , but at its core, Grindr allows users to list their sexual preferences and then displays how far users are away from each other, making it super easy to find someone up near you.
As the name implies, CasualX is an app designed for people not looking for a relationship but desire a more casual experience instead.
The app, which was founded in , bills as "Tinder minus marriage-minded daters," which means that even though Craigslist personals are gone, you can still find people near you who are looking for a quick fling. The verve he uses when rolling out the numbered steps of the process makes it evident that this guy will approach a possible encounter like some sort of demented camp counselor demonstrating macrame.
The header reads "Getting to be popular fun! More than likely, it's not the type of experience she wants to have just so she can share the story at the watercooler with her fisting-enthusiast co-workers.
Also, he might want to edit the tidbit about it taking " days for vagina to return to original state. Don't be a chicken. I have rented a residence in North Vegas, off Craig street. If interested please email me for a appointment. I am very willing to please you. Additionally, it's been indicated that our cross-dresser lives in North Vegas.
And while everyone knows what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, few are familiar with the North Vegas slogan, which is: What happens in North Vegas will haunt your dreams forever. For someone who's not into female impersonators, there is so much wrong here. But even if that is your cup of tea, you've got to be taken aback by the doll photo. That's some crazy serial-killer stuff right there.
Combine that with the freaky flowers-and-curls wig and any sensible person answering this listing would have to be at least a little worried about ending up in a freezer. You provide the cute and cuddly. Not looking for a one-night thing. I want all of the winter or when one of us finds someone better, whichever comes first. I won't have sex with you.
Cuddles is probably in the wrong section, because he's looking for more than a one-time thing and he's ardent in his declaration that there will be no sex. We can also assume that he doesn't have adequate heat in his home, as his winter-term relationship seems to involve you becoming his human space heater.
You've got a picture of kittens, you've asserted that you're a year-old virgin and the best descriptions you can come up with for yourself is that you have a "high metabolism? Cuddles, but you should consider eHarmony. If there's no ass play or misguided fantasy involved, Craigslist Casual Encounters has no use for you. Women who want to be manhandled by a lover with a questionable sense of style.
Vanilla women is out of the question and I only do KINK women that have a drive and a need to be controlled and in a submissive relationship. I am DOM in a good way, I am not a beater, yell or threaten - any male can to that, we call them ass holes. A true DOM knows how to control by asking once and can give you a look that will melt you in one second.
This guy likes to be in control. He knows what he wants and he's confident in his ability to melt flavors other than vanilla with a look that has been clocked at one second. Unfortunately, honing this incredible melting stare power has kept him from having time to get to the mall. Our best estimates track this tie to the Structure's spring collection. In the first line where he reveals that it's a recent picture of him. He may not be what we call "ass holes," but his pose and choice of neck wear are clearly giving off a heavy vibe of dork.
And, it's not the sweet helpless sort of dork either. We're guessing that the annoying repeated capping of "DOM" is an indication our friend is desperate to act out a control fantasy that has something to do with being passed over for a manager position at the grocery store where he's a "professional" cashier. We don't see why a listing that gives off the same bitter vibe he does in person would make his chances any better.
I'm offering ot take you on a cruise to Hawaii expenses paid for with me that is round trip to LA. It just doesn't happen. So despite all the name calling, feelings of alienation and social discrimination, sometimes it is really, really awesome to be gay, like when you get extended a two-week Hawaiian vacation and cruise for a few hook-ups. Also, sometimes it's not that awesome to be straight, broke and desperately in need of a vacation.
Honestly, the only thing wrong with this listing is that it evokes a great deal of envy amongst heterosexual males. The curious straight guy who happens upon this inquiry will inevitably ask themselves why they've been cursed with an attraction to the opposite sex when the best you can hope for in the women-for-men listings are year-old single mothers looking to host dudes who enjoy big-bodied females at their mobile home.
The only way this goes wrong is if he's full of shit and the cruise turns out to be a trip around the bay on his Uncle Remus' fishing boat. You could really get hurt if you resist. But pushing past that fear, by passing through it, lite rally the joy that lies on the other side of convention If you're an atheist, you will get to know God experientially, from being fucked in the ass. Butt sex means a lot to this guy.
Not many listings offer a spiritual experience, but the author of this one is doing just that. Photos of his torso display a muscular build, because no one wants to be reamed to a point where they "know God experientially" by someone who doesn't have a membership at Crunch. When the Archbishop of Ass-Nailing completely disregarded the fact that this is called Casual Encounters.
The feeling you get after reading the listing is that an encounter with this guy is going to be anything but casual. In fact, it doesn't seem like a stretch to think his idea of foreplay includes some chanting and the sacrifice of a goat. However, it's good our anal missionary here is looking to convert nonbelievers using Craigslist.
Taking his divine message door to door like a Mormon would be pretty creepy and probably illegal in most states. Really just a matter of whichever one gives out first. Some famous people are radically different from the images we hold dear in our hearts. We're here to catch you up on all the interesting stuff you should know. We like to think we're getting pretty good at spotting when a politician is lying to us Sometimes a video game's attempt to tackle the more delicate issues just plain falls short.
