The Craigslist personals section has given life to some incredibly entertaining stories about how people come together for various reasons and events. Whether it be for a little romance, to party, or to get it on, the personals section on Craigslist has manifested experiences you couldn't find in many other places.
Recently, Craigslist has announced that they are terminating the section, which inspired everyone to share their most memorable moments. In honor of Craigslist shutting down their personals section, what is your favorite Craigslist story? It wasn't really planned, it was just something we thought up. We said "Bring your xboxa TV, and an extension cord. People from Indiana drove 3 and a half hours just to play.
There was probably people there, and we were there for 14 hours. November my friend found a guy giving away a brand new Xbox with all the fixin's along with Halo 3 and the usual sports games. He figured he had nothing Husband on craigslist personals lose because it was in a nice part of town. Turns out there was a catch. The man wanted to keep all the boxes and packing for the console and games because he was going to give his son coal for Christmas. My buddy didn't ask why but said the guy's face and tone told him the kid must have deserved it.
On a whim, I decided to look up if anyone was selling any legos nearby, in an effort to make 10 year old me's dream of owning a ton of legos come true. Some of its new, some a few years older, but definitely a bargain for that price.
I reached out to the seller, and he said he already had someone interested add was only up for 45 minutes but that they hadn't given him a solid answer, so I told him I'd definitely buy the lot if her could wait a couple days to meet up for it, and he agrees. So a couple night later we meet up in a parking lot, exchange pleasantries, and get to the transaction. He starts by pulling out a Rubbermaid full of legos, then a second one, then a third, then a bunch or shoe boxes and unopened sets! He had no idea how much these were worth, just figured he was selling his kids' toys to another dad for their.
It was a good day. Was getting kicked out of a house due to the landlord deciding that his son and friends were gonna take over the house when the lease was up. I was panicking because I didn't have a lot of money to get a new place. I put up one of those "room wanted" and got the usual scam s and a few other hits, but then got Husband on craigslist personals that sounded too good to be true. Guy owned his house, rented out two bedrooms for a very good price, and had one open up due to a tenant moving out. I was cautiously optimistic because Craigslist is what it is, but it ended up being a perfect landing spot.
Three years later, I still live there and the homeowner is like family to me now. I know most people will tell you never to find roommates on Craigslist, but it worked out for me. I burst out laughing when a friend of mine sent me the same ad via. It was so outright ridiculous I just could not fathom it. They shut it down? This is news to me I've had a blast using CL Personals over the years. I got chatting to a girl through there a couple of years back, we met up once for a drink, second time for a movie and third time for dinner at my place.
We finished the meal and I invited her into my room, but I noticed she was in an awkward position on the bed, like she wasn't getting comfortable, her legs were dangling off the side. Thought she was feeling uneasy about it so I toned down our makeout session but she insisted I keep going. Still, she stayed in this super weird position and wasn't laying down straight. I told her to relax and reassured her it was ok to get comfortable. It was then that she broke down and confided in me that she had a phobia of putting her feet on anything she doesn't own.
Come to think of it, she didn't take her shoes off until she entered my room and her feet never touched the bed, it definitely explained the weird leg-dangling position she was in. All romance came to an end and I changed into therapist mode. She told me an ex-roommate once bought a foot cushion for their living room but Husband on craigslist personals could never bring herself to rest her feet on it purely because she didn't own it. Kicked her roommate out shortly after that. She knew it was an odd phobia to have but she simply couldn't overcome it. Never saw her again but I often wonder how she's doing.
After a while, the other booth girl mentioned her other job - she Husband on craigslist personals various fetishes professionally. Asked if this is something I'd be interested in, since she knew I hated my day job and was pretty consistently broke. When I was 19 I met some millionaire in London who was staying in a hotel room the size of a two-story house. He appeared as the kind of person who was unable to form deeper connections to others - partly because he travelled a lot, partly because he was pretty self-absorbed - and compensated for the lack of meaningful emotional altruism in his life by just giving random people money and favours!
I was a student from New York studying abroad. I was painfully, painfully lonely and felt that I wanted an escape from my life that didn't involve anyone from London or any of my friends from home. I tried to find a pen pal on Craigslist by posting in the Strictly Platonic section in California, as I didn't want to talk to any British people and wasn't interested in speaking to people on the East Coast.
I suppose it was clear from my post that I was a woman. I tried again asking only for s from women. Again, more really creepy s from men. Finally, I found a Strictly Platonic ad from a middle-aged man looking for another man to back and forth because he didn't have friends and wanted someone to talk to. He seemed like an interesting guy, so I changed the name on the I use for Craigslist a throwaway so that it said an obviously manly name instead of my clearly feminine one. I sent him a long and he responded back.
This correspondence goes on for a while without a hitch. At one point, I forgot my fake name but I was able to play it off by saying that I had a different given name, but everyone called me the other name as a nickname. The man began discussing his life as a single gay male serving as a caretaker for his mother. His brother was also gay, but he was married and the guy I was ing clearly had a lot of weird feelings about it. I'm a queer woman, so I was able to relate to a lot of what he said.
Over a few months, we become really close. We several times every day, often sharing links to cool things we've read and even exchanging pictures of interesting things we're seeing with me being careful not to reveal that I was in England. It was incredibly cathartic to connect with someone else like this, even if the person I was communicating with believed that I was also a gay young man.
This guy sends me a long professing his love for this fictional person I've fabricated, asking me to please come to visit him on the West Coast to start our lives together. At this point, I know this guy pretty well and I know it's a big deal for him to ask someone to do something like that for him.
I didn't really know what to do. Of course I'd lied to him about a lot of the aesthetics of who I was, but I also truly felt a connection with him and genuinely cared about him. I knew he was serious about how he felt. I didn't know what to do. I logged out of the address and I haven't logged in since. Moved back to America. No idea what happened to the guy.
My mother met her husband in on craigslist in the casual encounters. He moved in after I moved out in and has been an excellent role model for my younger sister. They got married in and I love him so much. He wrote a very touching letter to us about how Craigslist gave him a wife and two daughters.
He's so corny?? Also a roommate that we got from craigslist became one of my best friends in the entire world. I love craigslist. I'm a musician, Husband on craigslist personals back in high school I would constantly scan through Craigslist to see if there were any good deals or cool gear up for sale.
I had always wanted to learn violin, and I already played double bass, so how hard could it be? Spoiler alert, harder than I anticipated. I still suck.
But that's beside the point. I contact the guy and he says to meet him at his apartment. Now, I was naive, but I definitely was aware that this is kind of a sketchy situation. Especially after driving to the place - it was in a shady part of town, looked pretty run down, and I even heard a couple screaming at each other in one of the adjacent apartments.
It opens up, and I see a short middle eastern man who must have been 85 or 90 years old. He invites me in, and seems friendly enough, so I step inside. I look around, and his living room walls are practically lined with string instruments. It seriously looked like hundreds in racks - violins, violas, and cellos taking up probably more than half of the apartment's space. We talk for a bit. I tell him I'm hoping to learn violin, but know basically nothing about it.
He says he has the perfect one for me, and pulls down a violin from one of the many racks on the walls. I swear, it was like buying a wand from Ollivanders. He tells me the history of the violin, shows me the details of the woodwork, and mentions that all he has left to do is secure a bridge onto it the wooden piece that the strings rest on if I was willing to wait for a little bit. I say sure and have a seat on Husband on craigslist personals couch across from him.Husband on craigslist personals
