There are plenty of reasons why people would use the website Craigslist to meet and date new people. One reason is because it is very easy to use, as well as very convenient and easy to understand, even for the people who are not exactly tech savvy. Another reason plenty of people use Craigslist is exactly that—because there are plenty of people on Craigslist, which is a cycle that goes on and on in an endless loop, and is the life-blood of most social networking sites. Of course, Craigslist is not the best out there, but it certainly is one of the most competent, as if you look at statistics, there are thousands of thousands of pages in this website, with each of them a unique person. Chances are you will most definitely find the person you are looking for in Craigslist; that is, if you are willing to look hard enough. It could never hurt to be sure, and this article provides a step-by-step process that will help you meet and date people on Craigslist as efficiently and with as little hassle as possible. There is no guarantee that you will meet the person of your dreams (as it all depends solely on your discretion), but at the very least, this guide will make it easier for you to do so, as you no longer need to figure everything out; simple read the guide, and go from there:
- The first step to finding the right person is to look for her in places very close to where you live. Once you are inside Craigslist’s website, at right side of the main window, you will find a bar where you can search for people based on location. Simply set up the country and state, and you can begin your search from there. The reason why you need to choose people close to where you live is obvious; aside from making it easier for you to visit if ever you get along well enough, it is also easier for the person to come visit you as well, and the fact that you are near will encourage the both of you into forming a more solid relationship.
- Match their interests with your own. It is easier to get along with someone if you both have something in common. This can be difficult with the people you meet in everyday life, but in Craigslist, simply set up the search so that it looks for people who are interested in whatever it is you are interested in as well (which makes a good conversation piece and icebreaker).
- Send an e-mail, and try to get along. Once you have found your prospect (s), simply send her an e-mail, and see what you get in return. Trial and error is the key here, but so long as you remain respectable, you should find yourself getting along well with almost everyone in Craigslist. Once you two have finally gotten to know each other well, then you can talk about visits and hopefully, start something more meaningful after.
Do not despair if you don’t get along with the first person you send an
e-mail to. There are plenty more fish in the sea and Craigslist is
testament to that.
