Category personals dating
If you were using Craigslist for dating, we have a new alternative for single men and women to connect and hang out.
We will also explain the cause of why Craigslist shut down their dating and personals section, some history behind it, and why you may still have some luck using our site (Lets Hang Out.com) instead.
You can also have a look at their profile and requirements to know more about their personality before approaching them.
Craigslist didn't want to jeopardize the rest of their classified ad business due to their personals section.
Background: Craigslist is one of the earliest websites, launched in 1996, and began largely a general classified advertisements service for everything from jobs, resumes, housing and things for sale in the San Francisco area. In 2000, Jim Buckmaster (current CEO) joined the company and expanded Craigslist across multiple cities, produced many new site features and of course the new Personals section added for the first time.
Craigslist hosted one of the earliest and most popular personals services on the internet, which is still widely used today.
However, the trouble began with "casual encounters" and more specifically the "erotic services" category, which were equally popular.
One of the first controversies began in 2002 when they added an disclaimer to ensure that anyone viewing these pages were over the age of 18.
So, if you are one such person who is looking for love in your locality, do not go looking at a boring dating app.
