So you’re cruising Craigslist’s casual encounters section. You start talking to a self-shrinking violet who wants to parTy and be wooed with roses. The next thing you know, you’re in jail for cavorting with a prostitute who was high on meth. Whoa! That got real fast. Welcome to Craigslist, the sewer of the Internet. Unless you’re a serial killer with low expectations, Craigslist is no place to find love.
If you fell for the shrinking violet story, you missed the hidden message written between the lines. Violet can mean marijuana. A strategically placed capital T means meth. Roses is a code word for dollars in prostitution. If she wants to spend a romantic evening with you in exchange for 40 roses, she’s not talking about flowers.
For those looking for trouble, Craigslist is full of it. But for others, missing the hidden codewords implanted in an ad could land you in a sticky situation.
