Q:

How do you use Craigslist to find women?

A:

Quick Answer

Craigslist features several sections on its main site where someone may be able to find female companions. Under the "Personals" section, a user can read and respond to posts from any category that matches his interests. Registered users may also post their own inquiries in relevant categories for others to search and submit responses.

Full Answer

Craigslist originally listed a classifieds category for "Erotic Services" that was eventually changed to "Adult Services" after several complaints emerged that users were illegally soliciting prostitutes through the site, notes Wikipedia. Both categories were eventually removed.

As of 2015, users can search through categories such as "men seeking women," "casual encounters" and "strictly platonic." Before a search can be completed in these categories, users must acknowledge that they are over the age of 18. On the acknowledgement page, there are also links to information about safe sex and a list of resources users can connect to if they believe they have witnessed exploitation or the trafficking of minors on the site.

In addition to the ability to search listings, registered users with a verified email address can also post their own listing for others to review. Craigslist offers an anonymous email address for users to respond to postings without revealing their identity. This feature is available to those using the search feature and those posting their own listing.
