Over the weekend Amelia and I watched “I Love You, Man.” How friggin’ cute are Jason Segel and Paul Rudd in that movie?! Our girl boners salute you boys! But it seems chicks aren’t the only ones who melted at their adorable bromance. My gay BFF has been complaining that his Craigslist cruising has become…

Is Twitter The New Craigslist For Casual Sex?

I just searched the word “horny” on Twitter (What? It’s lunchtime.) and discovered something interesting. Instead of getting predominantly “I’m so horny, OMG, I need to get laaaaaid”-esque results, I found a plethora of tweets from people advertising that they’re looking to have sex. With you. Now. If you’re into BDSM, that is.

Remember that Oscar winner who allegedly used Craigslist to lure women to his place so he could rape them? Or the Craigslist Killer?

Mother Finds Her Baby Up For Adoption On Craigslist

It’s amazing what you can sell on Craigslist these days. But instead of being amused, one mother got the shock of her life when she looked online and saw that her baby was up for adoption. A woman tipped off Massachusetts mother, Brenna, after she saw an ad on Craigslist for the adoptio…

Caridee English Is America’s Next Top Slob

If you’re an avid “ANTM” fan like me, then of course you remember the seemingly sweet and likable Cycle 7 winner, Caridee English. I was sympathetic toward her after she revealed her childhood struggle with eczema, and I totally rejoiced when she beat that annoying, know-it-all Melrose. (I can almost hear her awful voice ringing…

America’s Next Top (Craigslist) Model

Alexander Wang’s runway show is one of the hardest fashion week spots to score a ticket to. The music is always great, his clothes embody bad ass chic, and the models he sends down the runway are hot and extra stomp-y. But it wasn’t always that way. When Wang first started out, he cast hi…

How To Date On Craigslist

I couldn’t help it; his email was password was just too easy to crack. His cat’s name? He must’ve wanted me to take a peek.

My fingers hesitantly pecked at the inbox, and suddenly, I was reading my recent ex’s email. To my horror, he had placed a singles ad on Craigslist. He truly…

Man Uses Craigslist To Find A Guy To Rape His Wife

I am definitely a big fan of Craigslist—it’s helped me get rid of a bunch of old crap and even led me to the cute couch that’s now sitting in my teeny apartment. But it’s another bad PR day for the site. A man in North Carolina posted an ad on Craigslist to find someone…

After the whole Craigslist Killer thing, everyone’s fave website has been getting serious heat to regulate the ads on their site.

Random Email From A Polite Craigslist Perv

I recently posted an ad on Craiglist selling a beautiful, twice-worn pair of Christian Louboutin pumps that my ex gave me as a gift.

What A Craigslist Ad Teaches Us About Relationships

Forget self-help books and magazine columns. For dating and relationship advice, I recommend Craigslist. Don’t believe me? Yesterday, I was perusing the New York City section of the site, hoping someone might be unloading a pair of Veronica slouch Frye boots in a size 7, preferably barely used, and hopefully well under the $328 they…
