The internet learned that lesson the hard way in March when Craigslist announced that it would be pulling its personals section in response to Senate bill H. Don't worry, the beloved Missed Connections section is still alive and well, and has a new home in Craigslist's community section. The move shocked users everywhere, primarily because the site and its personals seemed like an untouchable staple of the early internet.
As dating sites rose to prominence and hookup apps took over our romantic exploits, Craigslist personals seemed like a nostalgic artifact of our digital past. The pulling of the personal ads made everyone stop and ponder: While Craigslist has dominated the space, there are several platforms that offer the same services as Craigslist, if you know where to find them.
One of the most helpful Craigslist features is its housing section, which allows renters to post about openings for roommates, landlords to post about available rentals, travelers to post about sublets, and more. But if you're looking for alternative places to find housing be sure to check out: Spare room is a roommate-searching platform that allows users to post "room wanted" ads and "room available" ads.
The service also has expanded with an IRL event, Speed Roomating, in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles to connect a community of people looking for a housemate, making it faster and easier than ever to find someone to share your space with.
The group is for actors so the housing offered tends to be short-term sublets or temporary rentals, as actors book tours are looking for people to finish out their lease. But with over k subscribers, Ghostlight Housing can be a great way to find a place to stay, especially as you look to get your footing when you move to a new city. Roomster is a home-sharing website that was founded in with a simple mission: The site allows home owners to post listings of their space, and then allows users to sort through them, filtering out whether they're looking for a room, an entire place, a roommate, or a tenant.
The site also allows users to connect their social accounts to their Roomster profiles so that you can better verify that your potential roommate is actually who they say they are. It is astounding what you can buy and sell on Craigslist. But if you're looking for alternative platforms for peer-to-peer purchases, be sure to check out: That could be because it's super easy to list items on eBay. To sell something eBay, just enter the category of item that you'd like to get rid of, and eBay will list similar items to yours, allow you to set the condition of your item, and then the platform will send pricing recommendations.
The site also boasts a "best offer" feature, which allows users to place a bid for an item other than the listed price. For shoppers, that means a greater ability to negotiate bargains for goods and for sellers, that means its easier than ever to get cash for an item you're trying to get rid of.

After awhile, he asked if he could slap his dick against my pussy. He was saying please. I told him only if he had a condom there was a little fluid dripping. I told him no sex. He played around a little, then asked if he could put the tip in. I was kind of being whiny and asking him why. We had already agreed on the no sex thing. He just kept asking. The car was hot, it was uncomfortable, he just hovered over me. I said he could only touch the tip of it against me. Suddenly his full weight dropped down onto me.
I felt my stomach drop, I was pissed. I asked if it was all the way in and he said yes. He knew I was upset and tried to be nice about it but he really just wanted to have sex. I felt like I was a toy. I just kept telling him it hurt. He was really into it though. At some point I started crying and he stopped. He was sorry, he got carried away.
He made sure I was okay and we parted ways. How did you feel about it the next day? How do you feel about them now? I cried, showered, slept. What precautions did you take to prevent STIs and pregnancy?

I consented to most of it- I initiated it. To whom did you talk about the hookup? How did they react? I called my friend and told her what happened. She was mainly in shock because it was so out of character for me. She was concerned that I met a complete stranger.
