Local adult personals list of free dating sites
Eventually the 18 years disclaimer was added to all personals categories.
In 2009, one of the biggest controversies involved the "erotic services" category.
No prostitution or sex trafficking is allowed, and all members must be 18 years old or older.
Our site is just for those interested in legal dating and hanging out (the 99% of those who were using Craigslist Personals).
However, this service did not come without some major controversies over the years.
We will also explain the cause of why Craigslist shut down their dating and personals section, some history behind it, and why you may still have some luck using our site (Lets Hang Out.com) instead.
Background: Craigslist is one of the earliest websites, launched in 1996, and began largely a general classified advertisements service for everything from jobs, resumes, housing and things for sale in the San Francisco area. In 2000, Jim Buckmaster (current CEO) joined the company and expanded Craigslist across multiple cities, produced many new site features and of course the new Personals section added for the first time.
For those who are already familiar with Craigslist, members on Let's Hang Out can include search markers such as "m4w" (men seeking women) or "w4m" (women seeking men) into their profile descriptions.
When a user performs a dating keyword search, these markers (or any other keyword) will be found and the profiles will be displayed.
