I'm that young adult who has poorly developed social skills and never leaves their apartment except for mail and groceries.
I haven't had much luck on OkCupid or Tinder, so I've resorted to the epitome of late 's depraved electronic sexual shenanigans: craigslist casual encounters. So before I waste more time on that wretched wasteland, has it worked for any of you, say within the last three years I hear it was actually pretty profitable back in the day?
Serious question: why don't you try to develop your social skills? It's a pretty safe bet the person your looking for wouldn't want to spend the rest of their life inside an apartment with the exception of mail and groceries.
Your wording shows you just want to hook up, but I think your looking for something more. Meetups and volunteering are great ways to develop your social skills while pursuing a hobbie or two. Good luck!
Nope, I just want to get laid. I plan to move out to the middle of nowhere and avoid people all together, but for now I'm stuck here and figured for all the misery the city brings me I might as well experience sex. My SO used it once for a strictly platonic male friendship. He got spammed with dick pics.
If you're looking to develop social skills though, it's more about getting in social situations. Do you have any hobbies?
Spend time at shops that cater to it and attend events they might have. Check out upcoming library programs and go to some of those.
Make an effort to make small talk and don't beat yourself up if you say something awkward. I'll also add that everyone I know who has used cl for hookups have ended up with just a hookup rather than a relationship.
I've read a few stories on reddit of people who dated someone they met there, though. Found the internet!
Any locals have success hooking up on craigslist? Posted by 4 years ago.
