Last week I posted a rant on craigslist.. A person writes to me from my anonymous email and said he agreed with what I said.It was about high rents in NY...

I wrote back to him and now we have exchanged a few emails.. He lives near me and we are close in age. He then says want to exchange pictures?? I said okay?? So we did.. He seems okay and nice.. He isnt smiling so wondering about his teeth (lol)

He said my pic was nice and all and I had a great smile (blah blah blah)

Now this was def. not for a hook up or to date or anything. It was just ranting about rents and things.. and we seem to have things in common.

Last email after he saw my pic he sends a cute note and says for me to call him. He left his phone number. I am going to call him and see if he sounds okay..

I dont think he is a craigslist killer or anything.. He told me where he worked and lived..

what are the odds of this??

Well you never know how these things are going to turn out--he could be good.

Have you asked if he's single? I suppose chances of him being normal are the same as if you'd met him another way.

Music;; that is the weird part?? He answered an ad I had on the renting an apt. section.. I posted a rant and he just answered.. So we werent doing any personal ad or anything..

He had no idea who I was or what I was or if I was male or female.. I could have been anyone..

shy;; He said he is single and he sounds almost normal in his emails.. So what would be the difference if he was on a dating site like you said?

If he'd posted the rant, and you'd been the one to reach out, I'd be more open minded about it. However, since it happened the other way around, I'd be concerned that he does this sort of thing all the time.
