Regarding my roommate-wanted ad, this reply came in today:
Hi I’m male name/female name. I guess I would describe myself as a mature sissy tipe [sic]. Strong femme side. Most comfortable at home in my own personal space hanging out in my t-shirt and panties. . I’m very clean . I appreciate a safe clean comfortable home. I’m a mature sissy I pick up after myself and I have common sense. I’m not a big drinker however I do appreciate a good bottle of wine with good company. Maybe a movie night 🍿. I try and stay in shape. Walk alot. Its a beautiful pink bedroom and the bed looks sooo comfy 😋 I do like to stay busy. I have a fixed income. Not a partyer but I am 420 friendly. Very LGBTQ friendly. I hope to one day meet my life partner and become his full-time trans. O. Yes I want to transform myself into a full-time transexual [sic]. As for now I do go through life as a boy. I am a little older than you. I enjoyed My first man in the early 80s. I do have a fixed income. Soo there’s a little about me. I would be happy to send you a couple of pictures if you like if the place is still available. And please send me a picture of you. Think [sic] you
I’m not going to consider this person based just on the typos and terrible grammar.
If he/she is that careless in an ad response when he/she is trying to put his/her best face forward, how is this person on a day-to-day basis?
Setting that aside, however, this is a sex ad more than a response to a roommate ad.
Take it to Grindr or Tinder, asshole.
I don’t know what I expected from Craigslist. A certain amount of weirdness, I guess. But Craigslist is a cesspool of damaged/antisocial people and scam artists whom I would never consider as roommate material.
I mean, I spent my life in Boston and Chicago. I can take care of myself.
But I would never trust nearly all of these people (thus far) alone with my dog.
