Maybe I just have the wrong impression of the site though...
anyone use it and can vouch for it being a quality dating pool?
Sure, I can review my own list of places to meet people (and did), but I wanted to try something different. A quick proofread and a few mouse clicks later, my Craigslist ad was live. One gent sent a nasty note when I didn't reply in a timely manner, and one email was from a good friend (we shared a few laughs over that one).
Something I'd never done before, something that might help me encounter folks I wouldn't meet otherwise, something totally out of character. All in all though, the experience was better than I'd hoped for. Are you concerned about safety, who will contact you, privacy or how it will come across to your friends/family?
Its success is still pending, but if meeting new people was my only goal, Craigslist provided me with more positive interactions and opportunities than any online dating site has in years.
