The world of dating-while-feminist can be a challenge.For me, it is a prerequisite that my potential date identifies as a feminist, or at least is interested and can hold a conversation about feminist subjects.Online shopping lovers beware: Craigslist is not always a bastion of wondrous deals and titanic savings.Internet con-artists have found a way to make a quick buck almost everywhere you might exchange information online, and Craigslist is no exception.(source) In March of 2008, reported on a Craigslist hoax that cost one man almost everything he owned.In Jacksonville, Oregon, scammers posted prank ads on the website claiming that the person who lived at Robert Salisbury’s residence had to leave town suddenly, and that everything in his house was free for the taking. And while I’ll certainly encourage you to use good judgment when buying and selling, I’m not going to get into that here.
I honestly could picture myself being friends with several of the people I’ve met through Craigslist (in a 100 percent non-creepy way). Craigslist is full of pieces from stores like West Elm, Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, you name it.
Q: Why would you buy something on Craigslist when you can just order a similar-looking, similarly-priced item online without the hassle? For me, I like the feeling of finding a diamond in the rough and snagging something that’s on-trend but still slightly different than something you can acquire in an online shopping cart. Sure, sometimes items aren’t in great condition after years of use, but you can also find practically-new pieces at steep discounts.
That’s also why I like shopping at places like Home Goods, thrift stores, etc. Not everything on Craigslist looks like it’s a reject from your great aunt’s yard sale.
Attractiveness: You haven't paid for a drink since the recession.
Misc: Must have valid passport Bonus: Planned conversation topics include comparing notes of backstage experiences at hit musical "Hamilton" and "whose yacht we'll live on in international waters should anyone win the US presidential election." Swoon!
Instead, I’m going to answer a few questions I’ve gotten about my experience using Craigslist and share a few pieces of advice.
