There is also an alternative to this “Craigslist” that is right! Craigslist free dating is free to post ads in the personals for singles section and once your ad is posted all you have to do is renew it every 2-3 days and re-post it about once a week to keep it fresh and in front of millions. Although online dating sites you must beware of, there are plenty of frauds on Craigslist and things to watch out for even though it is free online dating. Note this is one of the alternatives free dating websites or if you prefer the best online dating sites from the internet dating world.
Step 1: Open up a simple notepad utility from your computer or device that you can easily find again. Using a notepad is an easy way to write a short Bio of yourself (Remember – keep it simple, but also safe.) Once you have completed that, find a “Spell Checker” of some sort like Microsoft Word and make any necessary edits you have to.
Step 2: Now let us open-up a web browser from whatever your favorite is and type in Craigslist.org after you sign up for a free account or if you already have one, you are ready to post. Always remember to post in your own city or town obviously you want to meet the person face-to-face eventually when the timing is right. When that time comes to meet the person, especially the first time make sure it is in a public place where there are other people all around you. Now that we are on Craigslist and have our simple notepad from earlier that we saved, we are ready to post.
Let us go through the simple steps together and select:
1) Personal Romance
2) Which of These Best Fits
Strictly platonic (non-romantic, non-sexual, just friends)
Dating, romance (long-term relationship)
Casual encounter (no strings attached)
Rants and raves
3) Choose a Category
I am a man seeking a woman
I am a woman seeking a man
I am a man seeking a man
I am a woman seeking a woman
Now that we have gone through the necessary steps, we are at the final screen to post our ad on Craigslist in the personals section.
Step 3: (Example)
Posting Title: Let us Get Together/ Specific Location: Hollywood, CA/ Postal Code: 90028
Hello my name is (Name) and I am (Yrs.) of age. Just a little about myself, I am originally From (State) or (City) and lived here for (However many years). I also have been (Married / Never Been Married) (# of Kids / No Kids) If you are interested and want to get to know a little more about me maybe, we could go to dinner, see a movie sometime, and see how things turn out between us. Hit me up sometime (Example) eight hundred eight seven six five three oh nine with a few words and a photo of you.
“Please Only Reply Back If You Read My Ad, Thank You”
As you can see in this Craigslist ad example above the phone number is included in the end of the ad. This is a way to get past the Craigslist personal information policy. You do not have to include your phone number in your ad; you can easily just use the Craigslist email relay if you choose to. In addition, you may get a better response from your ad if you always include a photo with it, so the other person has a general idea of what you look like and for them to make a decision to reply to you if they are interested.
Always play it safe when using online dating, whether it is Craigslist or any other dating website for that matter. Remember you are only chatting with the person and do not really know what is really on the other side of your computer screen, so always play it safe and remember when you decide to meet someone in person for the first time you do so in a public setting where other people are around you.
Good Luck in the Dating World and May You Find Your Best Partner… God Bless Everyone!
