    Hey i'm a bi guy and looking for other guys to have casual sex encounters. I just wanted to know is the whole idea safe? Would love your opinion guys

    Meeting a complete stranger will always carry an element of risk, I wouldn't recommend it personally but if you want to go ahead with it just ensure you take some precautions, for e.g.

    1) Asking to meet in a public place before hand (lots of catfishes out there!)

    2) Letting a friend or relative know where you will be and how long you're expecting to be gone for

    3) Consider booking a room at a hotel or hostel. I know it's expensive but it could be dangerous going over to a strangers place and it could also be dangerous inviting a stranger in to your home

    4) Use protection! This is the most important one, you can never be too sure what the other person has been up to and don't do anything you aren't comfortable doing

    There are also apps dedicated to finding no strings attached casual fun, grindr is used mostly by gay men

    I'm a straight guy trying to find a girl on Craigslist (by replying to their ad's on casual encounters) and despite persistence and being tall and muscular (with pictures to back up my claim), I have not yet had any success.

    Some 90% of the ad's are very obviously fake, those are easy to filter out. The remaining 10% are I'd say half fakers/scammers who have put in some effort (so I don't filter them out immediately) and half who actually seem to be real.

    With those who are real, mostly you won't ever get a reply (which is unsurprising, internet dating is a game of numbers for the guys) and the rest reply to an email or two and then just disappear. I've only had one woman who I talked to seem actually genuine and up for it but then I backed out as she was a bit too fat for my liking.

    Craigslist ad's are addictive but mostly a waste of time and you never know who's on the other end.

    As a bi guy myself, I wouldn't risk it with Craigslist. Even if the person is not a catfish, who knows how clean they are, down there?

    Probably better off on grindr though I have no experience with that or craigslist
