You have the right to ask in writing whether we hold any Personal Information about you, and to see that information as well as how we collect, use or disclose your Personal Information. We note that we may not be able to provide you with all of the information you request, depending on the circumstances (e.g., if it contains the Personal Information of other Members). There may be a charge for any copy of Personal Information requested.
Objective, non-emotional answer: Where will past users of Craigslist personals now go? Probably OkCupid or Bumble. I think that these two platforms have very much established themselves as data-based, efficient modes of matching. As they have gained popularity over the past few years, I think that they have cut into Craigslist’s market share - since Craigslist is essentially just a newsgroup that doesn’t offer a whole lot of functionality. Accordingly, I don’t think that this closure will displace a lot of folks.

I do NOT want my chemistry details to be on my profile! You did not state that it would show and we would not have a choice when we filled it out. I thought it was only a way for you to help find the right person for us, and not that everyone would be able to see it. Why would anybody want me when they can see on that chemistry profile that I have “a problem with self-control”? Why in the world would you want to post something negative when you’re supposed to be trying to help us find someone?
I also urge you at the same time to signup to the Match.com Free Trial and see the difference in quality you will get. That way you can compare the dating sites. People on Match are way more committed to finding a long lasting relationship compared to the Plenty of Fish Dating Site. The message response rate at Match is much greater and they have one the best female to male ratios from any other dating site.
There’s a reason Yahoo! Personals merged with Match — it’s the world’s premier dating site. Launched in 1995, Match was the first online dating service to ever exist, and it has remained at the top of the heap ever since. Match has 30 million+ members and has led to more first dates, second dates, relationships, and marriages than any of its competitors. Plus, did we mention it’s free to register, upload pictures, search through members, view profiles, receive matches, and communicate via likes and limited messages?

This service was around for quite a while and many users had numerous great experiences because of it. Now, all these users will have to find some alternatives to get their kink on. Well, it’s good to know that there are plenty of alternatives on offer. We’re going to go over what you should do now once the Craigslist Personals are out of the game.
