The two of us met when Anna answered an ad that Lily's then-boyfriend, Scott, posted on Craigslist.
Upending the notion of "Casual Encounters" -- as Craigslist dubs its "Just Looking to Get Laid Tonight" category -- we both discovered that casual sex is anything but.
Perhaps because we are highly verbal, our initial Craigslist encounters involved a ream of e-mail.
Besides all the rules that sensible people follow when dating online, like "meet in a public place," "let someone know where you are," and "condoms are non-negotiable," we developed our own special list for middle-aged chicks who date on Craigslist:1) A lot of men want to screw Sarah Silverman.
(Three lovers told Lily the potty-mouthed comedian was their "fantasy fuck.")2) With ads for people over forty, add at least five years and ten pounds to the photo.
There were forgettable ones too, like the alcoholic art dealer, or the guy who excused himself in the middle of sex to smoke a cigarette.
