"Answering Service for the Secret Service"
This was probably the raciest of a dozen Craigslist personal ads I replied to when I first was first testing these waters. There's a lot of freedom in this business - email doesn't seem like much of a commitment. Though this post seemed like a troll for oversexed dudes, I thought I would throw my humble hat in the ring.

In a night when I replied to many posts, I concocted this quick reply. I didn't have too many expectations, and I figured sending a link to some art nudes would either scare away a straight girl or attract something neatly weird. Uh, yeah.

this weekend my friend took a nice photo with me in it - i'm the guy on the left. see what you think.

I'm looking to meet someone new and lively. you sound like you're in control, that's admirable.


as for full length -
and if you want to cut straight to the chase, here's some artistic photos another friend took. warning, i'm nekkid. this is years ago tho - like 5 or 6, i've cut my hair since then.


Hah! Personals are strange.


The reply came quick, hot and heavy.

Call me at 415-744-9026, Im waiting to speak to you.


It was a little off-putting to be frank, I wasn't going to call. But I was home for the holidays, and my family, Lori in particular, they kept asking me what was happening with the online personals. I mentioned that one woman had sent me her phone number, and it seemed a little sudden. Thinking through it, I figured I didn't have much to lose (besides psychic energy), and besides, if I was going to take part in online personals ads, I should follow the leads I get.

I call. Background noise - people? media?
A middle aged woman - "this is the answering service for the secret service."
"Aahh, well, Ah, I guess I'm a candidate."
"Oh yeah? Who are you trying to reach?"
Oh, Juliana. Would you like to leave a message?"
"What was her last name?"
Okay, what's your name?"
"And my number is...
(Fiercely debating which number to give to this extremely sketchy woman
Not mobile, cuz that's a hassle. Not work because that's work. Home, I guess - I never check messages there anyhow.)
"Okay. Bye."

I think I forgot to give my area code out. It was just as well - I was shook up by this weirdness after I got off the phone.

I never heard back from anyone involved. I sent a confirmation email, and I never received any reply. Unless spam like "Me and My HOTTT Friends Want to Get WETTT with You!" counts as personal correspondence from Juliana.

How curious!
