Tonight, I spent a good hour and a half reading through the Craigslist personals. No, I’m not cruising the ads looking for a date or a quick hookup–I was actually doing research for an upcoming episode of The Chronicles.
What an amazing cross-section of humanity it is. The ads are all different, obviously, but there are themes that run through each section. The m4m section is raunchy, w4w almost wry, w4m perfunctory (I get the feeling you could write pretty much anything in there and get responses), and the m4w sad, almost desperate.
It’s really interesting; I think I’m going to read more of them at work tomorrow and see what other themes I can come up with.
