I’ve been living in Texas for a long time now, primarily Houston but I like to party in Dallas. Most of the time I’ll head up that way since it only takes about 3.5 hours to get there. I’ve actually flown a couple of times but the drive isn’t that bad. Anyway, last time I went I ended up using the Craigslist Personals section seeking out a woman to connect with on one of the nights. I’m going to share the full story with you right here.
What happened is something I’ll never forget – EVER.
It was an absolute nightmare. In fact, this particular trip cost me more in time, headache, aggravation, and money than all of them combined. Without wasting any further time, I’ll share just to get things started here. Pay close attention to what I’m about to share because it may just save you the trouble of wasting your time and money.
My Experience Using The Personals Section Of Craigslist In Dallas
How I Got The Idea
I’m typically not one to use these personals sections that are free. They are a cesspool of scammers, drifters, drug addicts, and scumbags. Sure enough, something sparked a thought in my head to check out the site. Perhaps it was the local tabloids mag I picked up in the lobby of my hotel. I found myself flipping through the back section looking for the girls giving oriental massages and what not. That subconsciously must have triggered the idea to check Craigslist. I’m not sure why it didn’t trigger me to think about hitting the local strip clubs but who knows really. Instead, it made me think of Craigslist, so guess what..
I did just that.
The “Seeking” Section
Soon enough I found myself accepting the terms and deep within the trenches of the W4M section. If you’re not familiar with this section, it’s where all the women post their personal ads describing themselves and what they have to offer.
Most of the ads were pretty boring but a couple of them stood out so I went for it. After sending roughly a half dozen messages to girls looking to meet men, I no sooner saw a couple of messages in my inbox.
I got really friendly with this one girl and we exchanged photos with one another. She described herself as being a “people pleaser” that likes to play the “submissive” role in bed. She was just looking for a no strings attached meetup and just a one-time thing. I was totally down for that so I messaged her back and we got really friendly. The photo she sent looked exactly how she described herself in the ad. It was almost identical and I was pumped to meet this beautiful blonde woman just looking to get laid. We set up a time to meet the next day.
This is where things began to downward spiral very quickly. The plan was for us to first meet at a local bar in Dallas. However, about an hour before the meetup she said that she had a time constraint and didn’t want to mess with going to the bar for small talk.
She instead proposed that I pick up some vodka and we simply head to my hotel room. Being the horny guy that I am of course I thought, “Perfect no money spent at the bar, she just wants to bang!”
After picking up the booze and some mixers, I found myself patiently waiting for her to show up. Then I got a text message that she was downstairs.
Of course, I gave her my room number and told her to come up and meet me there.
In The Room
There was a light knock on my door and I knew it was her. I swung the door open and no sooner realized that this girl had put on a little bit of weight since taking the photo. I mean, it wasn’t even comparable. At this point, I just brushed it off because all I was looking to do was get laid.
We poured a drink and she insisted that we have some shots of vodka as well. Being the type that never turns down a shot I went for it.
One thing led to another and we were making out with each other on the bed. Sure enough, we had sex and it was pretty good actually. The issue was that she was a lot heavier and not as pretty as her photo displayed. But that’s not all. Things took a turn for the absolute worst after we had sex.
The girl all the sudden mentioned that she wanted money for having sex with me and she wanted more than I had. I’m not talking $50 either. I’m talking $2,000! I had no idea that she would charge me to have sex with her. Afterall, I was just looking to have a Craigslist casual encounter with someone locally. Not to pay them for having sex with me. I’m not used to paying for sex as my dating network of choice doesn’t require any payment like this to girls.
Anyway, long story short, I didn’t have much cash and couldn’t pay her.
Then the nightmare started. She got extremely erratic and her tone changed instantly. After demanding the money, she sent a text to someone and that person ended up in front of my hotel room banging on the door. She ended up taking everything valuable that I had including my watch, credit cards and everything worth anything at all. The guy threatened to kick my ass and pistol whip me if I told anyone. It was the scariest casual encounter than I’ve ever had.
I’m convinced that the only reason this happened was that it wasn’t traceable on the Craigslist Dallas Personals network. They had no record of who the girl really was.
I totally messed up and will never do that ever again. Now I only use secure dating sites that promise casual sex for free, period. To the girl and the guy that robbed me, you’ll get what’s coming to you one day.
If you are contemplating using the Craigslist personals section or Backpage personals, don’t even think about it!
