One of the most popular activities online is finding people to communicate with.
We all crave relationships and human connection, and the Web has made this possible for more people all over the world than at any other time in history. Many people utilize sites that connect you with people that hold similar interests - to find and enrich these connections.
Many people have found this to be a great way to find local people in their area who are interested in similar hobbies, groups, etc.
However, unlike the other sites listed in this article, there is not even a minimum of "vetting" to see if the person whose ad you are looking at is a good match, so keep that in mind when browsing through the Craigslist marketplace.
Ok Cupid uses algorithms to match people up to other people that are well-suited; their services are completely free, but they do offer special perks for those who want to pay a bit extra to use the site.
Most people find that the free services suit their needs just fine.
In addition, many ads can be very NSFW (not safe for work), so browse at your own risk and use common sense and safety protocols when deciding whether or not to reply to an ad on Craigslist.
