Replying to a personal ad on Craigslist can result in the same misfortune.
It takes a little time, but eventually, you'll be able to judge which ads are legitimate people seeking casual encounters or if they're bogus ads.
It's a really popular app right now and I don't see a reason to use any other site or app to find encounters. If you're posting an ad, be prepared to get a lot of emails that have nothing to do with your ad.
Don't make the mistake of replying to these as there's a good chance your email address will be added to a ton of lists.
Now, whenever I meet someone, I insist on checking out their social media profiles.
When I first started off with online hookups, I met a girl that was nothing like her profile.
It will tell you exactly how far other members are but for safety reasons, it won't give out their nor your exact location. Being bi-sexual myself, I've used both apps and this couldn't be further from the truth.
