This week the U.S. Senate passed a bill to fight online sex trafficking, which could subject websites to more criminal and civil liability for the content that third parties publish on their platforms. As a result, Craigslist decided to remove its personal-ad section, posting the following statement: “Any tool or service can be misused. We can’t take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day. To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!”
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?

What is a note about happy couples doing in a move made in response to a bill to fight sex trafficking? Well, this is the vast possibility and danger of Craigslist. For decades, it’s been the place where someone might find the perfect or most horrible roommate; a steal of a couch or total piece of junk; casual sex or even a spouse. One of my oldest childhood friends, for example, posted a Craigslist ad back in the mid-2000s and met her husband. Now they’re expecting their second child!
