How NOT to date on Craigslist

I dont care if your mom told you so or if you get hit on at the coffee shop or if your self-esteem is so high that a goose ran into its windshield: telling strangers how cute you are doesnt work.

Try posting a few pictures and let the audience play hot or not in their own heads.
