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?

Recently I saw an ad on TV with a testimonial from some couple that got married after having met on a dating site. It reminded me of how blessed I am to have met my wife as a DIRECT RESULT OF one of your sites. It also occurred to me that as I approach my 5th wedding anniversary in February, I have yet to officially let your organization know about our success. I wanted to share them with you.
On November 13, 2016, it was reported that a database of usernames, e-mails, and passwords had been breached and leaked from Adult FriendFinder and other FriendFinder Networks websites. The breach included 300 million Adult FriendFinder user accounts, including account data for 15 million accounts that had supposedly been "deleted". The passwords had not been encrypted at all, or encrypted with the obsolete and insecure SHA-1.[24]

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.
