Love and Craigslist – Could This Be Your Christmas Miracle?

It’s the holidays and nothing warms my heart like Hallmark holiday movies. Christmas stories filled with tears and laughter, tragedy and triumph. I love this crap. Totally lacking in originality so I don’t have to think too hard and the obligatory happy ending so I know what I’m getting every time. This is what I crave during another mentally draining holiday season.

Funny enough, watching one movie in particular I saw the two main characters fatefully find each other on a Craigslist website that was called something like AndrewsList but the screenshot was identical. I say funny because while I’ve never posted or answered a romantic ad on Craigslist, I have heard enough horror stories from people who have. Taking a look at my local “Men for Women” ads displayed last night I’m going to venture that the love-will-conquer-all romantic holiday movie I watched earlier was not based in the state capitol of California.
