I'm pretty bummed out that the CE section is gone now. Does anyone have any other recommendations for sites or apps to meet potential clients? I live in NYC. Also last I checked p is still up. What lingo should we use on SA. Last time I used SA I stopped because I had to spend an enormous amount of time messaging these guys before they got that I was a provider.
Not sure how to approach SA advertising in a way that avoids this. As someone who's used SA for a couple of years now, saying this will get your account deleted in a hurry. Are they cracking down on that? I know you can't put it on your profile but a few SDs I've met said they a lot of girls will say it on DM.
And people on SA are just generally a huge pain to deal with and it is super time-consuming. Well, to be fair, SA isn't set up for escort work. It's for sugar babies and sugar daddies. Their operating paradigm is different than that for escort work. So naturally you're going to have to do a bit of work if you're going against the design of the place.
I'm not knocking the concept of arrangements, but if a guy actually has money to burn and actually wants a true connection and is personable I agree SD are timewasters because they give allowance at the end of the date or weekly or even monthly, Us Providers have more control because it's upfront connecting with clients short or even a long period of time And We screen so No SDForMe lmfao.
Exactly, I get that, just saying it's a huge pain to use in comparison to a site like NightShift. Tends to be very time-consuming and a lot less profitable. When you go in to create or modify a profile now, you have to check several boxes that state you're aware of X, Y, and Z. One of those is that you can't talk about PPMs.
I doubt they're able to do anything about discussing it in messages, but if it shows up on your profile M or F , you risk being deleted. I know generally the females get deleted, the males won't have their profiles approved until they remove the reference to PPM having been in that exact situation myself already. At what point do you bring it up? Also, do you ever imitate the messaging or do you wait for them to contact you?
I've found more luck liking profiles and waiting for them to reply. Also, asking exactly what they're looking for. P is still up. I believe TER and slixa are also still working. Very concerned about my ability to screen clients and make enough money.
Very concerned about my ability to screen clients and make enough money for rent. I don't know what I'm going to do. At least I have the numbers of all the clients I've already seen Hopefully we'll figure something out. NS was the only source of my income. I have no idea how I'm going to make a living now. Slixa is still up, but might be gone after the bill is signed tomorrow. I haven't paid for advertising yet and I'm hesitant to pay for Slixa especially if it's possible it'll be gone soon as well.
I'm considering trying Tinder but I feel like I would have to word my profile extremely carefully to avoid getting banned and if I did that, probably not everyone would get it. At least wait another week before paying for Slixa. In a month none of these sites may be standing. With Tinder you're looking at dealing with rude people, not being able to screen, time-wasters. I began to suspect that no women actually used the site.
The stereotype is that women are interested in relationships, and that only men would be interested in totally casual sex, right? We know that's not true, though. In fact, I was inspired to write this article when a friend told me many of her female friends had owned up to using it. Over the next couple of days, I actually received a lot of posts from women.
Or at least, they said they were women. To be honest, I doubted the veracity of the claims. It didn't take long to realize that almost all the replies I received were scams. The situation is so severe on Craigslist Casual Encounters that posts by real women who are actually seeking hook-ups are often flagged for removal at the slightest cause for suspicion. The most common scams are "safe dating" websites.
An alleged woman will write a man saying she's interested, but that because of the Craigslist-based serial killers and rapists in the news, she needs some extra assurance that it's safe. If you follow the link she provides, the website asks you for your credit card number — y'know, so it can do a background check to make sure you're not a criminal.
One individual tried to get me to buy him or her virtual currency in online games like MapleStory before agreeing to hand over contact information. Yeah, right — moving on! What little luck I'd had so far. The week was half over and I hadn't had a single bite. I decided I would have to take the initiative, so in addition to posting my own ads, I started responding to every ad from any woman who seemed at all interesting. I cast a wide net in my searches, looking up posts by straight or bisexual women between the ages of 18 and 35 who lived anywhere in Chicagoland — a large metropolitan area that's home to close to five million females.
Most of the women wanted something very specific they couldn't find in their normal lives: Someone to help play out a particular fantasy, someone vastly older than them or someone of another race.
Very few of the women who were advertising seemed to be looking for anything I would consider a "normal encounter. I typically wrote two or three paragraph replies and matched the tone of their own messages, then attached a couple of tasteful photos of myself. I didn't get a single reply from an actual prospect this way. It turned out that most of the ads were fakes from scammers, and quite a few fell into another category all together.
Prostitution is what made Craigslist controversial. There's technically another section for that — "Adult Services," formerly "Erotic Services" — but that's not the only place you'll find practitioners of the world's oldest profession. The prostitutes of Craigslist speak in code, but it's not a difficult one to learn. They advertise "French lessons" — an odd thing to advertise under "Casual Encounters," don't you think?
Well, it's obviously a euphemism for something else. Many of the ads that weren't from scammers were from prostitutes. The ads are so obvious that it's surprising the euphemisms are effective in fending off law enforcement. Then again, maybe they are law enforcement. Amidst all those failures, I had one near-success. A woman wrote in response to my sweet "cuddling first" ad saying she was in town for only a couple of months, and that she was frustrated she couldn't find a relationship.
When she sent her pictures, she looked plain but attractive. We exchanged a couple of e-mails over the course of two hours, tossing back and forth lists of interests and the like.
She made it clear that she wanted to meet up, and while she talked about starting slow, it was clear that it would indeed be a casual encounter. But when I suggested a time to meet — the last message from me before I would reveal myself and back out — there was no reply. At least, not yet.
The next day, she e-mailed me saying she was deeply apologetic and that she'd fallen asleep. She said she'd like to meet up sometime. So yes, there are women on Craigslist. Well, at least one! You've probably guessed by now that the experiences for heterosexual men and women on Craigslist's casual encounters are quite different. I observed that for every ad a woman posts, there are at least 20 from men. If nothing else, that imbalance ought to alter the experience. To get the female perspective, I did two things: I posted a fake ad as a woman to see what kinds of responses I would get, and I interviewed two women who have had success hooking up on casual encounters in the past.
As for potential suitors, I asked only that they supply a photo and "be attractive and not creepy. There was a five minute delay before my ad appeared, then I started receiving about one response per minute. Most of them were careful to say "I don't do this often. Some sent pictures of themselves naked along with the word "Hi.
There were a lot of expressions of sympathy over my fake breakup. I was hearing from men of all types, and it seemed I had my pick of the litter. After about thirty minutes, though, my post was flagged for removal. I thought I'd made it look legit, but as we learned earlier, folks have good reason to be hawkish about scammers. After the end of my test run with Craigslist casual encounters, I decided to get more insight into the female experience with the site by interviewing two women who said they had successes meeting up with men on Casual Encounters.
