So, perusing the internets tonight, I found myself on Craiglist in the personals section. Not because I am looking to meet some skank that way, but I'm curious as to what would draw someone to that type of connection in the first place.
I myself have never gone on the Craiglist personals, and was extremely intrigued by what I might find. Pictures of scantily clad women in sexy lingerie, offering promises of mind-blowing sex? Pictures of nice, cute girls, lonely and looking for love? Not so much. In fact, there wasn't even a picture to be found.
What would draw someone to go on such website, when there are so many other websites that offer at least photos, information, a little insight as to who the person might be? I'm certainly perplexed as to how someone could just log in, and what, randomly pick someone, based on what? "I'm cute, curvy, and live in Hoboken. Email me." How is that enough information to decide that you might want to meet someone?
I mean, I'm not a complete idiot. I get it, one wants to get laid, and fast. Ok, fine, but how do you even know who to pick? That is enough info to go on?
Has our society as we know it completely gone to shit? All for a little casual encounter with a stranger? Relationships have gone the way of shopping on Ebay. And it's fucking terrifying.
