I decided I would use OkCupid and Craigslist (yes, even scary ol’ Craigslist) so I could have dinner three times a week without opening my wallet.

I'm very conflicted. I feel like I should dump him...but I don't want to. Help...please?

Instead of trying to show off what she knew, she just laid it all out there. She knew posting an ad on Craigslist was kind of strange, but her friends from school just didn’t fit into her life anymore.

OK, so I don’t agree with this guy’s religious views, but I think his heart is in the right place, and seriously, he’s single! Oh, and I met him on Craigslist. Where I posted looking for a husband. So there’s that.

This was the transitional period between the “popular girls have hideous Coach purses” phase and “popular girls have hideous Dooney and Burke purses” phase.
missed connections
I'm sorry I need the love and attention of strangers to fill the emotional void inside me.

Frankly, I wanted to see what the big deal was about sex. I didn’t want to go into my 27th year with the stigma of being a sexually inexperienced woman.

scammers
Vile people and the semi-naive 20-somethings-trying-to-make-something-of-themselves who believe their lies.

I always wondered what sort of people replied to the sex personal adverts on Craigslist. It turns out, they are people like me.

I'm sorry. I'm a wretched person. But: "mustard."

I’m not ashamed of what I did -- I respect all sex workers, and I’m proud that I didn’t give up on my NYC dreams. But I do feel ashamed that I failed.

Unlike most newbie dancers, I did not improve for a freakishly long time.
