TSA Body Search Inspires Love

While most of us are dreading invasive TSA searches at the airport, one guy in Reno loved his enough to post a Missed Connection on Craigslist. Pretty sad that a TSA full-body pat down is the only action this guy is getting. Should someone email him and let him know that the dude who…

Girl Talk: My Husband Contacted A Prostitute And It Saved Our Marriage

Dear Wendy: “I Caught My Husband Perusing The Casual Encounters Ads On Craigslist”

The other day I got home and "caught" my husband perusing the casual encounters ads on Craigslist. He's done this in the past and tells me he does it when he feels rejected by me sexually. We have sex three to four times a week. He told me he hasn't contacted anybody. Since he's not…

Grossest Missed Connection Ever: The Booger Picker

My friend stumbled upon this very unique Craigslist missed connection ad. I'm still refusing to believe that it's real. It simply can't be, but, alas, it's been haunting me. You have to read the entire thing (maybe even a few times), but the gist is that a "tiny Asian girl" noticed a ma…

Craigslist Dating Experiment: Looking For A “Feminist Man”

There are lots of good reasons not to go looking for love on Craigslist — namely, getting stabbed by some creep.
