Tags: found on craigslist, santa is sexy
Proving 1) nothing is sacred anymore and 2) Christmas is getting way too commercialized if even horny douches are capitalizing on xmas to get laid, and 3) Santa is sexy, writers at Washington CityPaper created a compilation of the 10 worst/best Christmas-themed casual encounter messages found on D.C.’s Craigslist.
Brought to you via Washington CityPaper: (too good not to reblog in it’s original form)
Clarification: not actually a sex ad:
I am just looking for a woman that would be willing to give me a Christmas gift I have always wanted….her to kick me. 🙂 I’m not looking for anything sexual at all, so you do not have to worry about that. Just would like to find a woman that would like to have a guy she can kick whenever she likes. Hope to hear from you. Merry Christmas!
For the girl with Santa issues:
It is that time of year again when santa gets VERY stressed out and he is looking for a good girl who would like to let him pay her a special visit (or a bad one who wants to get on the good list) and help santa out. Looking to come by and spread some christmas cheer. Santa has a wonderful candy can for you to suck on. And from there stuff your stocking and give you a very merry christmas! Send santa a letter and tell him what kind of girl you have been this year and what you want 🙂
I have found the woman for you, good sir! It feels so good to play holiday matchmaker:
I’m looking for a man with a santa suit to satisfy a naughty Christmas fantasy.
You should be clean, drug and disease free, 30 – 45 years old.
please respond with a photo of your face and put the word “Santa” in the subject line.
What woman could resist becoming this dude’s ornament?
I NEED SOMEONE TO DECORATE MY CHRISTMAS TREE AND RAISE MY SPIRITS BEFORE THE HOLIDAY! I FIND BEAUTY IN MANY SHAPES, SIZES, ETC, SO PLEASE DON’T BE SHY. PLEASE RESPOND WITH HOW YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPRUCEN UP MY TREE, PLEASE SEND A PIC. FYI I’M HOPING FOR COAL THIS YEAR SO THE NAUGHTIER THE BETTER;-)
I, too, am interested in how women intend to “sprucen up my tree” this holiday season. Do you think that’s German?
Extra points for making a holiday pun out of your condom use:
Yes, I should put more into this ad, but the title is what I’m looking for. I get off on giving women something that their husbands or boyfriends SHOULD be able to, but can’t. While he’s plowing the snow, we can either stay inside and keep each other warm, or you can sneak out to do some “last minute Christmas shopping”, either way, I’ll give you a nice, big, wrapped present.

Last year a Jeffrey Hancock, a researcher from Cornell University, studied the profiles of 80 online daters in New York and compared them to their physical appearance. He found that 81% of participants lied about at least one of the three things in their profile.
We already know that women often round down their weight and men commonly add inches to their height, but Hancock’s new study to be published in an unpcoming Journal of Communication issue uncovers how profiles reveal when someone is lying.
It’s not so much as reading between the lines as it is looking for what’s missing from the page.
Hancock found that people lying about their weight avoided writing about food, while people lying about their salary avoided writing about money. On the whole, liars’ profiles tend to be shorter, their “about me” section brief, and make scant use of the pronouns “I” or “me.”
“This is called psychological distancing, where speakers distance themselves from the lie,” said Prof. Hancock in an article, “We see it in perjury cases, in political speech and in the lab where we’re getting students to lie to one another. They are aspects of speech that reflect deception in a way we can’t control – they’re very unconscious.”
But don’t overscrutinize the next time you troll on Match.com — Hancock says its extremely difficult for someone to identify these falsehoods before the fact.
And while these fibbers are definitely being deceptive, they’re not necessarily being malicious about it.
Hancock observes that liars are motivated to enhance their profile, but still be able to accurately portray themselves when meeting in person.
But that’s not the case for all online representations of you.
A study by researchers at the University of Texas at Austin found that Facebook and other social networking sites portray a fairly accurate representation of a person.
While the reason for this difference is unclear, one thing for certain is that it’s harder to inflate your profile when friends can write on your wall and tag unflattering pictures of you.

Online dating outsourcing service Virtual Dating Assistant analyzed more than 2,500 messages that they sent for their clients and found that messages sent on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday had around a 50% lower response rate than messages sent on the other four days of the week.
The online dating experts say that timing is everything — while emails sent on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays had twice as many responses, they sent emails:
- after business hours on Wednesdays
- late in the afternoon on Fridays, when people are least busy at work
And they never, ever send emails on Friday evening, because the last thing you want people to think is that you’re alone and at home on a Friday night with nothing better to do than troll online.

This should have been a no-brainer, but apparently a man swindled almost £100 from British women he met on FriendsReunited.com, a UK-based dating website.
By posing as a U.S. Special Forces officer called Captain Antonio Grosso, a supposed Afghanistan war hero, the con artist spun tales of caring for his cancer stricken son after his wife died three years ago. And by the way, would you mind lending me £450 to pay for his hospital bill. You will? Great, just wire the money to this Nigerian bank account…
Using a fabricated profile, fake pictures, legitimate seeming email addresses, and forged military emails and documents, the man was able to gain the trust of up to 20 women, including a banker and an ex-police officer, proving once again that love is truly blind.
Although he spoke to the women nightly–proposing to one– each of the women were guilty of the first rule of internet dating: never send money to someone you’ve never met in person. And even then, why do you want to date someone with that much baggage and needs to borrow money?
A modest effort to combat the problem is RomanceScams.org, a site that tracks online dating scammers. Think you’re communicating with an online romance scammer? Take this quiz to find out.

Before there was Facebook, Craigslist personals, and online dating sites, there were chat rooms. Yes, chat rooms. Remember those?
One couple has no shame about meeting in a local AOL chat room in 1996 (under the guise of searching for a bassist for a band –excellent cover story!), and incorporated their internet-based love story into their wedding vows.
See? You can find love online.

It’s like pouring salt on a wound.
You’ve already shelled out $60 a month to online dating sites, and the last thing you want to do is waste your time with a married man. But the reality is that an estimated 20-40 percent of men on dating sites are actually married, even if they say or wish otherwise, according to Ava Whaley, who teaches “Online Dating; Be Safe, Be Smart, Be Successful” at Harper College.
So how do you avoid paying to be the play thing to another woman’s husband? You could take a course, but in case you don’t live in Illinois, here are some tips for spotting a married man:
No profile picture. We get it: Online dating is a still a little embarrassing, even though more than 70 percent of the internet using population has admitted to doing it at some point in some form. But we’re all adults, and if you can show your picture to the rest of the world, so can he. The no-picture profile is the biggest sign of the married troller because he doesn’t want to be outed by his friends or co-workers.
Be wary when he says he’s separated, but not yet divorced. Yes, getting divorced takes time. But make sure he’s living in a separate residence and papers have been filed. Don’t fall for the “emotionally separated” excuse — have you ever seen that on a legal form?
Is there a tan line or indentation on the ring finger? It’s not foolproof, especially since the type of guy to be online in the first place is probably also the type of guy to forgo a ring entirely in the name of modernity, but check for signs of recently removed jewelry.
He prefers to communicate electronically. From emails, to IMs, to texts, if he’s more interested in communicating online than on the phone –even in the name of efficiency– it’s not only the sign of a bad communicator, it’s a sign he’s hiding something.
He’s really, really busy and can only meet you…
It’s hard to get away when you’ve got a wife waiting for you at home. If he’s really rigid about the times he can or can’t meet you, it’s possible he’s scheduling you around someone else. Be wary of last minute cancelations and invitations — a guy who’s really available will make time for you when it’s at your convenience.
You can’t find any information about him online. Keeping a low internet profile isn’t a badge of honor. From Facebook to newsletters, everyone’s name is bound to turn up somewhere. Even my mom — who can’t figure out call waiting — shows up online. If you’ve searched for your date online and turned up empty handed, it’s possible he’s keeping a low internet profile for a reason or that he’s lying about his name.
Trust your instinct, and if you’re in doubt get a second opinion. As your friends, or better yet, your mom to scan dating profiles and communication to see if they can smell a rat. Do you have tips that we missed? Let us know…

It is perhaps the least surprising dating statistic ever: one in three middle-aged women want a boy toy, according to a survey by UK dating site Parship.com.
No, I am surprised. Why isn’t that statistic higher?
But apparently the trend of dating younger men is a revelation for many women, and a lot more mainstream than just five years ago, when only eight percent of women said they were interested in dating a younger man.
How times have changed.
Celebrity “cougar” relationships — such as Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher– and the internet and making it easier and for older women to date a younger man, according to Dr Victoria Lukats, psychiatrist and Parship’s dating expert.
Spinning it nicely, Dr. Lukatst said, “Internet dating also encourages people to focus on what’s really important in a relationship and for many women, their priority becomes finding a partner with whom they are compatible, irrespective of age.”
