Trying to Find Love with "Craig and Dem"....

So I was talking to my ex (The one from 2000-01) on Sunday and she was telling that the Baltimore/DC/No. Virginia men really suck. It has gotten so bad for her that she has been looking for hook ups on Craigslist.org. I went on there to check out her prospects, as well as any for me (just in case, you never know LOL) and there are some "doozies" to say the least. There is even a section that is devoted to just strictly smash and grab jobs. I told her that she might do a little better paying a few bucks for a month and trying out something like Match.com or Yahoo Personals.



She tells me that she would do much better if she moves back to Chicago and we get back together.

I try to get her to think otherwise, LOL....


So my question is, has anyone did the Craigslist.org thing?

What about some good or bad Yahoo personal or Match.com stories?

Don't be shy, It's only me and you talking.......



Thanks for Reading,

Robert L. Mack

NO CRAIGSLIST...only thing that site is good for is an apartment, a job and alot of laughs.

I have done blackpeoplemeet... I like it! Except for the fact that half the dudes are dellusional thinking that they are 6 feet when the are really 5'5. Other than that...I've had good experiences. Don't get me wrong...I've had some bad ones...but good outweighs the bad.

hmm.. I never would have thought of Craigslist as a hook-up spot. I usually go on there to look at electronics or household items that people are selling in my area.

I have never tried any internet dating sites, but I knew people that did. I'm not knocking anyone that has but I'm not paying loot to meet someone to build a relationship with.

I have however met a dude I had some things in common with off of Blackplanet. It wasn't like we were both looking for a relationship or a "smash friend" but I had someone I could chill with when I wanted to. We're still cool til' this day.

I thought Craigslist was just for furniture and apartments. Lol. People hook up on that site? I tried internet dating, but it is not for me. I will meet a dude (if ever) when it is time.

Why pay for Match.com when you got Blogger for free?

I've tried Internet dating, but have only ended up with Internet sex (not that that's a bad thing). Now, I'll agree with t.cas.

Whats good...long time no talk. I've browsed the craigslist thing just for laughs, and that thing is HIGHLY suspect. And you're right...they got a special section devoted to hit it and quit it. I don't fux with the internet dating cause there's just something about it that kinda irks me. I don't know, as things progress, it's not as taboo as it once was. I might start though...cause the girls around VA are killin me....

I found my apartment on Craiglist, but that's about it. I do have a Match.com story, though. I funny one, too. I actually ended up with a trip to Aruba...

I'll save that story for my blog on a rainy day.

I live here...and she is right, they do suck...every frog turns out to be just that a freakin FROG...LOL...I don't know what to tell her...go to church try that, but you know there are some FROGS up in there too...I might be trying match or yahoo soon too...not too soon though..LOL
But my little cousin got all of her furniture from craiglist...so it works for something

I'd have a problem soliciting sex from people via craigslist.

Now as far as dating...Blackpeoplemeet.com is pretty good. You should try that.

Or come to Phoenix.

Either one.

every year i vow to try match.com and i sign up and then i don't do shit with it. i think i'm chicken.

i have internet dated before, met someone once whom was half of my last real relationship but all that being said i will probably never try it again mostly cuz...well we can't' both be internet nerds:-)

craigslist is for amatuer hookers and married guys with sexual compulsions from what i heard..but i could be wrong!

I tried to respond yesterday but BLOGGER was acting up....Lemme see if I can do this now...





Blah Blah Blah
LOL!!!! Well for the record, I am a legit 6'2 with no shoes on. Maybe one day you could see if I "measure" up.

Isis
LOL @ you saying "paying loot for a relationship"
So ok, did you hit BP dude or what?
LOL!!!!!!!!! kidding..don't answer that...

(unless ya gonna do it)


Miz JJ
I thought craiglist was a spot for things like finding a car or something too. I don't know what the deal is with the CANADA men, but if I was up there I would trying.

TCas
LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You know I never started blogging as a way to meet women. Although I will say that when I first started, I hoped to attract Nsane Nika Laqui because I thought she was DOPE! And I hoped to meet her because she was in Chicago (at that time)....

O. Noise
Even more reason why I call you Organized PORN. LOL...

Charles
What up Lil Bruh? Man it was so many crazy looking females, I was just like "wow, what kinda man would want that"...
That being said, there was like 2 maybe 3 possible looking chicks out there for you. Check it out...

Dynasty
DO TELL......LOL...one day.

TC
Frogs huh? Sorry to hear. Why can't I find Chi-town versions of you or Miz JJ? Maybe I just ain't looking hard enough....A female that likes Lupe? You had me right there....

Mistress
It's not for me. And Phoenix is too hot. Me and you together, I'll be dehydrated. Too much sweating. *wink*

Miss Ahmad
LOL...I like that. "we both can't be internet nerds"...
Amatuer Hookers...with some of the way them people looked, that wouldn't surprise me. My favorite one was an ad where a lady only wanted to date a man in a wheelchair.

I don't think internet dating services work...I rather you bullshit me to my face than trying to woo me over the internet

And craigslist's dating ads seems so...skeevy to me. Like the ones that's in back of the Sun Times or something. Let's hope times aint that hard for you Mr. Mack you're looking at craigslist's chicks

I keep trying to talk myself into signing up. I get close & then back out. One of my best friends signed up last year & is scared to go out on the dates.......a waste of money.

Man, I found my current girlfriend on Craigslist. She is truly the best woman I have ever dated. She is beautiful! We hit it off from the first date. She by far isn't a horror story nor am I...You just got to get the screening process down and trust your gut. She is my Honey....very sweet. I am hooked. She has a honey complexion, bigger breast then my 44DDD's, taste super sweet, stockbroker, and full time law student. You can't get any better than that! Thank you CRAIG and Dem!



BPM. only gave it a few months...a few crazies just like you would meet on the streets. One dude wanted to shit on me! EWWWWWWW, nasty ass!

Yahoo...back in the day I still am vibin with some cool cats from Yahoo. White dude clockin' a sistah...EWWWWWW

BlackPlanet...A total waste...mostly dumb ass college students.

BlackVoices...was good back in the day but it was sold to some white company..BBBBOOOOOOOTT

BiCurious.com...nothing all that exciting.

OnLineBootyCall....I smashed one but he turned out to be lame. It was good for a few weeks.

Sounds really odd as everyone knows bout Craiglist - Never heard of it (UK!!!)
Over here there are still match.com etc but never really tried them.
I had an old friend that met someone on the net and he turned out to be in a mental hospital so i don't think i will be trying that anytime soon.
Hope all is good tho x x x

Divine Lavender

That BPM story make me think of the story that BIG told on his 2nd album. That's bit much for me...shitting on me? yeah right...

Hey you...it's been a long time since I've come here. The new job is keeping me from reading, but at least I manage to still write (barely).

To answer your question, I did BlackPlanet dating A LOT while my husband and I were separated a couple years ago...and that was an interesting experience...hmmm...I feel a blog coming on! HAHHA!!

Craigslist is good for laughs and shock value. For a REAL LAUGH (or gag - depending on your humor), the LOS ANGELES Craigslist is where are the freaks are!! I have never seen so many gay ass men before in my life - and these are dudes that are calling themselves straight looking for a blowjob from a DUDE! The ads are funny to read and the pics are even worse!!

After reading the blog at the link P sent me to this lesbian's blog who was trolling Craigslist for p*ssy, I would definitely believe that. I also hear that a LOT about DC/VA/MD men being damn near nonexistent. Wassup with that?

I don't have any stories, but I got clowned the time I put up profiles on both of those. Fools kept writing me asking if my profile was fake because I was too beautiful to need a site like that. I was like, "WHATEVER, maan!!" and "DAYUMMMMM" at the same time. I wound up deleting all the profiles. LOL
