Do straight guys actually post in the "platonic" m4m section on Craigslist?

Or all they just closet cases?

by Anonymousreply 4307/05/2014

I met a guy names Socrates from CL in the platonic m4m section, but I wouldn't call him straight.

But, as you (should) know, I'm flexible.

They don't post, because that would be gay. They just reply.

What fantasy. Straight guys don't even know what m4m on Craigslist is. Really.

Cute R1.

Platonic m4m in my region is always appropriately blank.

I'm gay. I am a gay man.

Oh my goodness.

Yes, they do. I was briefly involved in a film club started by a guy in the M4M Strictly Platonic section of CL. He, and the rest of the group, was straight.

That's different R8 as it was looking for a group of people for a specific person.

Anyone talking about wanting to meet a guy to hang out with but they are straight so it will be nonsexual they promise is a joke.

But why couldn't women join that film club, hmmm? Because they were secretly hoping it would turn to circle jerks.

Was the film selection the complete works of Jeff Stryker?

by Anonymousreply 1101/29/2014

They do, I was interested in a group about Broadway theatre and Ice Skating, so I advertised and all of the members except me, were straight men.

Yes, I met a cool Mormon dude who wanted a workout and movie partner. We hung out for a little while. He even game me a nice Christmas present. He is straight.

R13 Was the Christmas present a rim job?

by Anonymousreply 1401/29/2014

Work out partner? Hmmm....I guess. But, I'm suspect.

by Anonymousreply 1501/29/2014

That mormon guy was a total closet case, this was him peeking out of the closet a bit, I guarantee it.

If the guy was hot, the Mormon guy would be a Sexual Scientist.

by Anonymousreply 1701/29/2014

Yes, the Mormon dude is very goodlooking. But he is very much heterosexual. Not a closet case. Very chill, bro.

And, what do you look like, brah?

by Anonymousreply 1901/29/2014

People who use craigslist to meet people are not good looking.

by Anonymousreply 2001/29/2014

Also socially awkward loners. Given how big community is the mormon church there is no way he was really using craigslist just to find a friend. If your story is real he was definitely giving feelers for community outside of the church because he is a closet case and part of him wants to explore that side of himself. God knows few people in America have bigger hang ups with their sexuality than Mormons.

Hot Mormon guys do not use craigslist to meet guys. They walk outside.

I've placed a couple ads in that section over the years, looking for movie pals- straight or gay. I live in a football cowtown and there is no one intellectual or interested in The Arts. "Fun" is a tailgate party and hot wings.

A couple guys answered but they were Asbergers-y and odd. Humorless.

I will say that men think anything on Craigslist is a sex ad. I went to look at a used car and the guy was giving me leer.

If you place a sex ad, most of the respondees will identify as a straight married man.

Several years ago, I got a good deal on a car via CL. No leers involved.

Straight guys unable to find 'buds' must be a special kind of hell. Nowhere near as cute as that movie "I Love You, Man".

by Anonymousreply 2602/19/2014

I knew quite a few guys who watch CL for car deals.

by Anonymousreply 2702/22/2014

Back in 2010, I put my 1994 Ford Ranger on CL after I bought a new Focus; the Ranger was sold within 90 minutes.

by Anonymousreply 2802/22/2014

Ford makes a Ranger Dildo, R28?

Birmingham's is filled with non-platonic stuff.

I hope so, dude

Craigslist males are 95% gay, bi or self-loathing closet cases- usually of the efeminit bottom variety. All trying to bag that elusive masculine daddy that will make their dreams come true.

When a real straight guy does troll for pussy on there, he has to put a disclaimer in the ad to tell the gays he's not interested.

R12 wins for best post, lol

by Anonymousreply 3303/18/2014

A lot of them are straight but desperate for sex when the wife fails to provide satisfaction. Thus they go for a hot mouth at a glory hole.

by Anonymousreply 3403/20/2014

There was a posting in the SP section in my area of a guy who was looking for a straight buddy to hang out with, to do buddy things, talk about girls and cars and watch TV, and he would massage and rub his buddy's feet for him while they hung out. I always found that particularly funny. There are some people out there playing little games with themselves, not being honest, and living strange little lies for a life.

I also suspect that some people don't understand what the word "platonic" means.

There have always been a (small) number of straight guys that come by this board R35. Welcome to the internet, everything is connected.

Frigid fraus send their men to t-rooms.

Here's the typical. Starts out like brahs, then...

by Anonymousreply 3803/26/2014

That's funny, R38. He starts out straight, and then he becomes... bi. In the middle of the ad.

Sounds kinda sad to me, but when you live in Bumfuck, Ohio...
